Homemade Peanut Butter & Fig Granola {Gluten-free}

Easy homemade granola with chunks of dried figs and a crunchy peanut butter base.  I made a batch of this granola early in the summer.  The first day I made myself a bowl with yogurt and blueberries then proceeded to eat most of the chunks out of the leftovers.  Luckily the base was still good […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Bites {Gluten-free} {Vegan}

Well, I think/hope that this will be the last banana recipe for a little while.  As I said before, the banana consumption in my apartment has a direct correlation with our workout frequency and things are finally back to normal at home.  We are headed to Napa later this week so the motivation of a […]

Vegan Mango Shake

It is amazing what a week can do. One week out of the office and I’m smiling more often than not.  Now, that smiling could be related to to the  number of chocolate chip cookies that have come out of my oven in the last few days, the fact that I’ve gotten to sleep past […]

Skinny Pumpkin Spice Mocha Iced Latte

I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Sometimes I don’t drink my coffee until I get to work so that I have incentive to get to the office.  After waking up by 6am, going to the gym, showering, getting dressed, making lunch and eating breakfast, it is a long way to go […]

The Best Homemade Applesauce

Before coming back from our weekend away, I had to take advantage of the apple picking available! We went to Windy Hill Farm which had a decent selection of apples to choose from.  I was really excited to see they had my favorite variety ready to go. Besides the beloved Honey Crisp, we got a […]

Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Pretzel Pops

I told you I’d come back with these cookie dough balls.  Actually, the only thing that kept me from eating the entire batch at once was all of the ideas brewing in my head.  Some of the ideas that you all suggested were kabobs, frozen yogurt/ice cream topping and mix-in, cheesecake, and cupcakes.  I can’t […]

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie Dough Balls

I had a couple options for tonight’s post, but it seems my Facebook fans and Twitter followers are huge peanut butter lovers like I am. For all the years before my blog, I thought I was alone in my peanut butter addiction.  What a relief to know there is a support group! So, in honor […]

Mixed Berry Sauce

I’ve been wanting to make a variation of this sauce for a while now:  something that would take a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the next level (because let’s face it, vanilla will never be chocolate), add texture and flavor to a slice of basic angel food cake, or be so pretty you want […]

Easy Low Fat Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes

Boston and a Chocolate Cupcake

Last weekend, the Husband and I went to Boston for a short trip to visit our foodie friends/newlyweds, Jon and Ali.  Given that they love food as much as we do, most of the weekend’s itinerary revolved around eating!  We had brunch at The Friendly Toast, tasted beers at Harpoon Brewery, dinner at B&G Oysters,  […]

The Vegan Challenge

Note:  This post is a reflection of my week-long Vegan Challenge.  I thought it would be an interesting change of pace from the norm.  This post does not cover the ethical rationale behind a Vegan diet. I’m not Vegan.  I’m not even Vegetarian.  I don’t keep kosher either.  When I diet, I use plans like […]
