Warning: These are addictive. They’re easy to make, delicious, and good for you. And you won’t have to pay $4 for a 1.5 ounce baggie. It’s hard to say if they’re crispy or chew. It’s kind of both. You can snap them in half, but when you eat them they’re a little chewy, not like

I’ve been enjoying smoothies lately, and wanted to make a streamlined easy-to-grab smoothie option for myself, instead of mixing 5 different things (obviously this one is only 3 things, but you know what I mean) when I decide I want one. So this is my first ready-to-go smoothie. It made 8 baggies and I enjoyed

I’ve found myself relying on dairy too much… well, maybe not “too much” (based on what?) but more than I’d like. If I’m hungry, I reach for a glass of milk (up to about 3 glasses a day often). Anneliese asks for cheese all the time for snacks. She eats LOTS of cheese. And usually

My friend Amber texted me yesterday and said “I hope your birthday is amaze-balls.” It was pretty good but I MADE amaze-balls. I was going to make myself Joey’s Birth Day Cake, but I didn’t butter the pans well enough and the cakes stuck. So I threw the cake into the peanut butter frosting and

You know those bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers that are filled with cream cheese? I could eat about 100 of them at a time. I LOVE them. But I rarely make them because carefully scooping all of the seeds out of the jalapenos is a bit time consuming, and I’m always afraid I’ll get pepper juice in

I’ve been so excited about my new donut pan! I even have another one on the way, and even ordered the mini-donut pan too. There’s just something about baked confections with a hole in the middle! Why are they so fun?? So my Mother-in-law is in town this weekend, and since both kids were napping

  One evening, I couldn’t stop thinking about cookies. It was late when I decided to whip these up, and since I didn’t want to wait for multiple batches to finish in the oven, I put about half of the batter into mini muffin cups instead of right on the parchment paper (these need about

I was so excited to try this recipe from Real Simple. I’m a sucker for lemony things, skin-on chicken, and any excuse to eat roasted garlic. The first time was a bust though. I’ve cooked lemon slices like this before (the original recipe has you put them in the bottom of the baking dish), and

I’m a giant Pinterest fan, and when I saw this donut recipe, I had to re-pin it even though I didn’t have a donut pan. But the idea of donuts was sowed in my mind, and I couldn’t stop thinking of them… so I ordered this donut pan (recommended by my twitter friends), and now


Since I kept torturing people with photos of this cake on twitter and instagram… I’ve been asked about a zillion times “WHAT IS THAT CAKE!?!” followed by “I MUST MAKE IT AND PUT IT IN MY MOUTH NOWWW!” Well it’s really really good. This is the cake I was GOING to make while in labor
