The Multiple Personalities of Coffee

Do you like your coffee with a shot of Kahlua? Do you take it extra large, put it on the tab? Are you a coffee snob who’ll only drink coffee that’s been French pressed? Coffee lovers come in all shapes and sizes, and with good reason. It can be decadent, it can be straightforward, it can get the job done or provide a lovely afternoon respite. However you take it, let’s agree that coffee is awesome and you should love every […]

I have to be honest, I was skeptical of this recipe for Baked Donuts that I found on the Camille Styles blog. I mean it’s very nicely photographed and all, but how good could baked donuts really be? These are a little denser than your normal fare but since they’re baked that means you can definitely eat twice as many. The recipe calls for a donut pan but I just used a muffin/cupcake tin and it worked just fine. As […]

I’m going to be entirely honest with you: I’m an ice cream kind of girl. If I had a choice between sorbet and ice cream, I’d pick ice cream every single time. Popsicle vs. ice cream? Ice cream for the win. Cake vs. ice cream? Ice cream wins. Pie vs. ice cream? I’ll take both, thank you very much. But, you see, we are turning over a new leaf here in my tiny little kitchen. This is a leaf of […]

If you think about it, we all want to look and feel good. Being healthy is built-in to our instincts; we have to be physically fit to survive in the natural world. And though we’ve managed to make day-to-day life safer, and perhaps a little easier, than it was for many of our ancestors, we seem to have made staying healthy harder in the process. So what do we need to do to stay fit? Let’s make it all really […]

Forty-three billion pounds of food in grocery stores are thrown away every year. Forty percent of the food we produce goes uneaten. Grocery stores lose out on about $15 billion per year on unsold produce alone. These numbers are shocking, but more shocking are the results one grocery store chain in the Mid-Atlantic saw after noticing less than exciting customer survey results. Stop & Shop/Giant-Landover customers weren’t happy. Produce was over-abundant in stores, but none of it tasted fresh. The […]

So, I don’t know about all of you out there, but I grew up in a household that did not idolize Martha Stewart. I may or may not be mildly obsessed with all her craft products and drool-worthy recipes now, but growing up I thought she was a weirdo. Like, seriously. On her shows back then she would do something like, I don’t know, make butter, and I swear it would start with milking the cow. Who has a cow […]

Oatmeal and fruit makes everything healthy, right?  Right. I’m glad you’re on-board with that. That’s what you should tell your coworkers if they refuse to eat these Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies with you. They’re called “cookies,” but I mean… Fruit=good Oatmeal=good Milk=good Just like Joey’s logic for Monica’s Meat Trifle. That logic is completely infallible. So now that your conscience is clear, go ahead and make yourself these delicious treats. Banana Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies Ingredients 1/2 cup mashed ripe banana […]

Is there anything canned pumpkin can’t do? As the air gets crisp and the leaves start to change, our minds turn to all things Fall. And what is autumn without pumpkins? Let’s explore three ways this seemingly innocuous grocery store staple is really quite versatile — it goes way beyond your mama’s pumpkin pie. 1.) Make creamy disaster-proof dips. Sub 1/2 of the tahini in your hummus recipe with pumpkin for a guilt-free hummus. 2.) Add to smoothies for thickness […]

A couple weeks ago, Julie (my roommate) and I made the mistake of watching The Patriot late at night. It was a mistake not because it’s a Mel Gibson movie, but because we had forgotten how incredibly depressing it is. Just one hit after the other, the low blows just never stopped. And that’s when Julie’s Midnight Smoothie came to the rescue. This recipe is perfect for those nights when you need to do some emotional eating. We used a […]

We. Love. Nick. What’s that? You have no idea who Nick is? That’s okay. I have a feeling you love him too, you just don’t know it yet. Nick is my cousin’s fiancée, and also our friend. Because we like him. So, well, you probably don’t know him. But, let me tell you about him: he gave me this recipe. It was delicious. And deliciously easy. I think that’s all you need to know for now. Do you know how […]
