Sour Cherry Almond Muffins

June 21, 2011 Breakfast

Being that it’s cherry season and I’ve been doing a lot of baking that involves cherries, I couldn’t resist posting this recipe for cherry almond muffins. A few days ago, my co-worker brought me a bag of sour cherries from her yard. Sour cherries are super tart and much smaller than super market cherries.  What [...]

Vegan Chocolate Milkshake

May 22, 2011 Breakfast

    Cue the sexy music. Because this milkshake is smokin’ hot. Actually, that’s not right at all. It’s ice cold. It’s also creamy, thick, and super chocolatey. And it’s exactly what I’ve been craving as the summer approaches. Inspired by my first attempt at vegan chocolate pudding, I decided to satisfy my summer milkshake craving [...]

Mother’s Day Recipe Ideas

May 7, 2011 Breakfast

Sadly, I will not be spending Mother’s Day with my mom this year. She is halfway across the country spending the holiday with my little sister. If I didn’t know better, I’d begin to wonder if I’ve lost my place as “favorite daughter.” Good thing I know better. For those of you who are spending [...]

A Royal Wedding with Cranberry Lemon Scones

April 29, 2011 Breakfast

Look alive, people. There’s a royal wedding happening today! In case you’re not as completely, hopelessly addicted to People.com as I am, you may not be quite so geared up for the nuptials between the beloved Prince William and Kate Middleton. Ah, young love.

Peanut Butter Oat and Fruit Bars

April 25, 2011 Breakfast

This was sort of an accidental recipe. I hadn’t intended to make a snack bar, but after toying with a few peanut butter dessert recipes, I found this to be a more practical, healthier option that can be eaten for breakfast or an afternoon snack. Don’t get me wrong, I love peanut butter desserts, but [...]

Muffin Top Challenge

April 19, 2011 Breakfast

I know what you’re thinking.   It has nothing to do with that. Let me explain. My sister called me up a few weeks ago and told me she tried VitaTops Muffins. She liked them, but said they were pricey and asked me to create a homemade version that was just as tasty but easier [...]

Omar’s Honey Nut Granola

April 11, 2011 Breakfast

This recipe a tribute to Omar, my very favorite character from The Wire (the best ever show created for television). Not so long ago, my fiancé and I worked our way through all five riveting and intensely captivating seasons of The Wire and developed a deep fondness for Omar and his penchant for what he [...]

What the heck is a Siggi?

February 24, 2011 Breakfast

I’ve been hearing a lot about Siggi’s yogurt lately and have been meaning to try it for a while now. Everyone’s talking about it- creamy, Icelandic yogurt that tastes as though it descended from Heaven. I love yogurt, so I just had to give it a try. Ooooh, so creamy. Whoa, tasted a little bitter [...]

Chocolate Chipotle Almond Butter

February 22, 2011 Breakfast

I’ve been meaning to make my own nut butter for a while now. A weekend spent at the farm gave me lots of down time and the perfect opportunity to do this. Though, as it turns out, you don’t really need “down time” to make nut butter. It whips up lightening quick. I chose almond [...]
