Santa Hat Snack Mix

Christmas is here! That means stuffing your face with sugar for a whole month.  No matter how hard you try to avoid it, there are treats everywhere this time of year.  So I’m just jumping on the bandwagon and sharing another one with you. I am loving this little snack mix! It is a little […]

Small Batch Natural Applesauce

Hi muffins! I was making another batch of applesauce this afternoon and I realized that it’s something I’ve never shared with you.  I started making this applesauce when my little guy was six months old and ready to start solid food.  As you can probably guess, I wasn’t into buying pre-made baby food and instead, […]

Pie Fries

Wondering what you’re going to do with your pie dough scraps? Do you even have pie dough scraps?Sometimes I do.  Usually, I just throw them away, but if there’s a ton left over, I’ll make hand pies.  After my pie dough comparison, I had a lot of extra dough and had already made hand pies, […]

Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am a chewy chocolate chip cookie lover.  There is just something excellent about biting into a soft, gooey, melty cookie.  Sounds perfect already.. but add nutella, and I’ll eat the whole batch. I’ve been a little light on the posting lately.  That’s mostly because I got burnt out on all the vegan business.  It […]

Vegan CocoNana Mini Muffins

Even though I’m not living the vegan lifestyle anymore, I’m still finding ways to enjoy vegan recipes in my diet.  I saw this recipe this morning on Miss Mary‘s blog and I had to jump right in and make them!  They looked delicious and simple, and they were. The name CocoNana refers to the coconut […]

Part-Time Vegan, Day 4

  I ate too many cookies today. ‘Cause, you know.. sugar’s vegan. (Woo hoo!) Breakfast was a peanut butter banana wrap with almond milk. Lunch was the salad bar at Lane’s. Snack was (too many!!) vegan chocolate chip cookies. Dinner was leftover pasta. Let me just tell you about this banana wrap.  I make this […]

Mini Frittatas

It’s March!  That means it’s Brunch month in my Great Food Adventure.  To tell you the truth, I’m relieved.  Those macarons last month were giving me drama. I think brunch is one of the greatest ideas ever.  I only wish I could enjoy it more!  I’m always ravenous in the morning and the bean never […]

Fruit and Nut Granola

This post is long overdue. I am a granola person.  It’s just how I roll.  Not only that, but I’m a picky granola person.  I like my granola just so.  And maybe that’s why I’ve waited so long to make it for myself.  I wouldn’t want to force down a batch of bad granola.. yuck. […]

Banana Muffins and Bake It Pretty

Have any of you ever brought dozens of bananas to a big group breakfast thing and end up bringing most of them back to your house because no one in your town likes bananas? It happens.  It happens to me. Good thing around here we are banana-eating-machines (baby is included/the main culprit).  It’s definitely a […]
