I learned an important lesson this week while making cornbread muffins. Don’t over-think things. Simple is best. Who says the best lessons aren’t learned while baking anyways? A few weeks ago I made a cornbread crumb cake that was delicious albeit a little time-consuming. And yesterday I cooked up a batch of vegetarian chili and was looking for […]

If you’ve been reading my recipe posts as of late, you’ll know that I’ve been doing everything in my power to avoid turning on my oven this summer. With the exception of this ombre birthday cake for Matt’s birthday, I have stuck with no-cook or grilling meals to combat the summer heat. When Rizzi from […]

Cornbread Cake Crumble

Man I love subject lines chock full of alliteration. Can you blame me? It perfectly sums up what this recipe is; a mix of cornbread, cake and an awesome crumble on top. And as much as I love alliteration, I love cornbread even more. Just don’t tell my good friend almond butter. I’m not sure love even […]

For the love of oats

I have a wee bit of a sweet spot for oats. A self-proclaimed carb-lover, I like that oats provide a complete breakfast with little more than a dash of salt and water. And unlike other carby breakfast foods, they actually fill you up.   I also love my cast-iron skillet so I’ve been waiting for a […]

We decided to mix up our Sunday routine and go to a later mass today. I know what your thinking. Real crazy life we are living these days. Truth is, since we moved in, we’ve been going to an early mass so we could get to the beach each Sunday. Matt’s family was in town most of […]

I’m a self-proclaimed scone snob. It’s years of love for these flaky, just sweet enough treats that’s made me this way. So you can imagine my concern then, when I decided to use some of my farmer’s market blueberries in a batch of scones this morning, only to have misplaced my go-to recipe. So I did as […]

I want to tell you that these banana oat pancakes were a cinch to make. And they would be perhaps, if you, unlike me, knew how to properly assemble your new blender to avoid almond milk spilling all over your kitchen from the start. Next time though, these will be a cinch to make. The […]

Believe it or not I used up all my words this weekend so I’m going to keep this short and sweet. Speaking of sweet this coffee cake is just that. Sweet enough but not too sweet that you find yourself trying to get it to say something mean just to see if it’s capable of […]

One of my girlfriends had a birthday party last night and I’m proud to say I stayed out, in a bar, well past 2 a.m. I know my after-hours-attending, late-night-eating 21 year-old self is laughing right now as she reads that statement but she’s just going to have to deal with the fact that we’re […]

Happy end of Daylight Savings Time, y’all! I hope technological advancements (aka your iPhone) made this time change a little easier on you than in years past. And congratulations to those of you whose car clock is finally accurate again after 6 months of ‘just looking at the minutes.’ Tricky little things, aren’t they? Ok. […]
