Banana Oat Bread

Banana Oat Bread

Lately it seems like every Sunday morning I’ve been making banana bread. Either I’m Betty Crocker reincarnated or I bought way too many bananas that ended up going bad. Considering I keep forgetting to bring one to work when I leave in the morning, I can safely say that it’s the latter. But you know...
Pumpkin Mousse Parfait

Pumpkin Mousse Parfait

Earlier this week I mentioned how my folks and I went pumpkin picking. The same day I delivered a few apples and a perfectly round pumpkin to my grandma’s house. All those fall goodies totally made her day! Grandparents are so cool. Anyway, we were talking about food and ended up on the topic of...
Omelette Cups with Ham & Peppers

Omelette Cups with Ham & Peppers

Hopefully everyone is having a great week! :) I love repurposing leftovers. Not reheating, that’s gross. Nope, it’s fun for me to make leftovers into a completely new dish. We had some leftover ham from Easter, so I thought it would be cool to make a classic omelette with ham and cheese. Because I can’t...
Bacon Wrapped Potatoes

Bacon Wrapped Potatoes

So…the other day my parents and I started prepping the yard for spring. It was mainly just raking some flower beds, but the main project was that we had to rip out the stump of a tree that had been over turned by Hurricane Sandy (yup, we’re still cleaning up after that mess). After working...
Banana Pomegranate Smoothie

Banana Pomegranate Smoothie

Woa. As soon as I sat down to write this shpeal, I realized I hadn’t posted a smoothie recipe since last February! That’s crazy. It’s time to change this drought! So…this weekend I made a delicious smoothie with banana and some pomegranate juice (I’ve been on a pomegranate kick all year and have been trying...
Fruit n' Oat Bars

Fruit n’ Oat Bars

Oh man, do I love granola bars. Throughout my entire life, we’ve always had at least 3 different kinds of granola bars in the house. My mom would toss me a bar or two to stash in my backpack, car, or jacket pocket whenever I’d leave the house. It doesn’t even matter what flavor. I...
Whole Wheat Cherry Almond Scones

Whole Wheat Cherry Almond Scones

Okay, so my mom may or may not be addicted to cherries. I’ll neither confirm or deny her addiction, but lets just say that it’s a fruit we ALWAYS have in our fridge. The same goes for almonds – she adds them to smoothies, salads, and pretty much everything. I don’t get it…but tis the...
Sweet Potato Latkes with Red Pepper Ranch Dipping Sauce

Sweet Potato Latkes with Red Pepper Ranch Dipping Sauce

After spending the weekend of cleaning up after Hurricane Sandy, I wanted to eat something that was filling, fried, and quick to prepare. I mean, what is better (and more comforting) than freshly fried potatoes on a cold day?! Nada! Since I’m “trying” to cut back on calories I decided to fry up some sweet...
Peanut Butter Banana Oreo Muffins

Peanut Butter Banana Oreo Muffins

Cooking and baking allows me to unleash my inner mad scientist. I get to mix and match whatever ingredients I want without anyone telling me to stop playing with my food. I can pile on anything I want, give into my inner fat kid and then excuse my binging by saying “I’m just being creative”....
Egg White Madness

Egg White Madness

Egg White Madness. Yessss. Summer is coming up, so that means eating healthy and dieting is in full gear at my house. This is one of the recipes that I cook up pretty frequently to fill my belly while also helping me to slim down. Sometimes you just want to eat something filling, ya know?...
Pancake Tacos

Pancake Tacos

Even though I’m not a huge fan for that all important first-meal-of-the-day, somehow I don’t mind breakfast for dinner. It’s a fun way to get over a weeknight dinner lull and gives you a burst of energy to start your night off right! Since my folks love pancakes and eggs, I thought I’d treat them...
Espinacas Con Garbanzos

Espinacas Con Garbanzos

A lot of countries seem to have their own version for spinach and chickpeas, including Turkey, India, and Spain. This recipe is for the Spanish variety (hence the sexy Spanish title!). You start off by toasting breadcrumbs in oil with garlic and a little onion. Then add some sweetly tart tomatoes that create a thick...
