Berry Ganache

Whether breakfast is the most important meal of the day or not is up for debate; I think we can all agree, however, that whatever it is, it ought to be delicious. This berry ganache is easy, sweet and healthy, and is a great addition to countless breakfast dishes. I made this with mini-waffles, but feel free to add it to cereal, oatmeal, pancakes, French toast or most anything else you can think.

Peanut Butter Pie

Peanut butter pie is one of my top favorite desserts, ever. It’s so quick and easy to make, too! Oreo cookie crumbs make a chocolatey crust, which is filled with a creamy, lightly sweetened peanut butter filling. The pie is frozen until ready to serve and then topped with crunchy chopped peanuts, drizzled with chocolate syrup and decorated with whipped cream. Make sure you remember to set it out about 30 minutes before you are ready to serve it to […]

Coffee Brownie Milkshake

Did you know that I used to work at an ice cream shop? My favorite part of working there was sipping on the leftover milkshakes we used to make for the customers. My absolute favorite milkshake was our coffee brownie milk shake. Whenever a customer ordered it, I was so excited to drink the delicious leftovers in the blender. After I stopped working there, I continued making my favorite milk shake at home. It is really easy to make at […]

Mini Spiced Chocolate Donuts

I am kind of obsessed with this little donut place in San Francisco. By the way, is it donut or doughnut? I’ve never known which one is correct. Or maybe it’s both? Anyway, back to this incredible donut spot. They create different donuts every day from scratch, and I am always surprised with their new ideas. This spicy chocolate donut recipe is my version of their spicy chocolate donuts, so now you can enjoy them homemade, too! They are baked […]

Procrastination Nation Bread (Light Banana Bread)

One of the many things I like about banana bread is the way it rewards procrastination. Oh, you left a bunch of bananas on the counter until they were overripe and started to attract fruit flies? Usually, this kind of situation would end badly for our hero: you snooze, you lose; the early bird gets the worm; etc. But not with banana bread. No, banana bread rewards our hero with a rich, delicious treat that can only be made once […]

Apple Muffins

What I love about these apple muffins is that they are low-fat, and, dare I say, healthy for you?! Instead of butter to make the muffins nice and moist, I use non-fat plain Greek yogurt. My favorite thing about these muffins is the sweet, crunchy streusel topping made of pecans, walnuts, and a pinch of cinnamon and brown sugar. A batch of these muffins prepared on Sunday make a great morning snack for the week. Did you know that you […]

Turtle Frapp

In college, I basically survived on turtle frapps. Whether it was an exam coming up that I needed to study for, the start of a work shift, or a long night ahead, this was my go-to drink for my caffeine fix! And now, the day before Thanksgiving, I know you are all in need of an energy boost, too! For those of you who love coffee and have a sweet tooth like me, you are going to love this drink. […]

Carrot Cake Smoothie

I discovered a delicious new smoothie recipe that I want to share with you guys! I call it the Carrot Cake Smoothie. Unlike most smoothies made with a lot of fruit, this smoothie contains little fruit and, therefore, less sugar! Its flavor comes from the cinnamon and nutmeg, which blend perfectly with the carrots, pecans, and milk. The banana adds some texture and a bit of natural sweetness. Don’t forget the raisins! Those are a must in any carrot cake […]

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

My favorite drink during the fall season is this pumpkin pie smoothie! It’s the perfect drink to blend up for a get-together, or to simply enjoy on your own. Heading out for a walk outside to enjoy the leaves turning the brilliant colors of fall? Blend yourself a pumpkin pie smoothie to take on-the-go! Taking the kids trick-or-treating tonight? Enjoy this together before heading out, so you’ll both be less tempted to indulge! Top it with some whipped cream and a dash […]

Salted Caramel Cheesecakes

I have a thing for mini desserts. Perhaps because they make me feel less guilty? These mini cheesecakes are my latest favorite – have you ever tried something that is both salty and sweet? If you haven’t, it is really addicting. The sprinkled sea salt and caramel on top of these cheesecakes is just heavenly. I love making these for parties, because they’re not a messy dessert and everyone can just eat them in their hands. You can make them up […]
