High Protein Chocolate Blueberry Muffins    

April 12, 2015

Hey friends,

As I wrote a few posts back, I’m on a higher protein diet than before and my coach advised me to eat something with a good dose of protein before working out in the morning. Since I’m not a fan of whey protein as a shake and I wanted something quick and easy to munch before lifting weights, I started making muffins. So today, a new high protein chocolate blueberry muffin recipe for you! Om nom nom!

Chocolate Coffee Cake Mug

January 28, 2015

Hello everyone,

I hope your week’s going better than mine. I’m not trying to be a downer, but a series of unfortunate events beginning yesterday afternoon when I left work, really threw a wrench into my mood. And I don’t know about you, but when I’m having a tough day, I need a pick me up, usually in the form of chocolate or some other comfort food. Lucky for me, the recipe below is chocolate cake that can be whipped up in under three minutes. How sweet is that?

January 14, 2015

Is there anyone in this world who doesn’t like a good cookie now and again? Show me that person and I’ll show you someone who’s having no fun in life. I on the other hand, could happily eat cookies everyday of my life – they’re on of my worst Achilles’ heels: if cookies are in the nearby vicinity and they’re good, I’ll find them. So today, I’m sharing one of my new favorite recipes for dark chocolate gluten-free cookies.

Cranberry Fluff

December 17, 2014

I’m very excited to be sharing this recipe with you. It was introduced to me just a few years ago by a family friend (it’s a longstanding Thanksgiving tradition at his family’s table), and I loved it the first time I tried it. I think you will too, and find many more uses for it besides just at Thanksgiving time, so be sure to whip up a batch of cranberry fluff. Continue reading

Crustless Pumpkin Pie

December 14, 2014

This post is a little late in coming, but I figure that pumpkin-anything is good for far longer than just Thanksgiving. I see no reason why the good old pumpkin pie should be relegated to just that one holiday. And speaking of which, what’s the best part of a pumpkin pie? The filling of course – so skip the crust and just go for the best part with my crustless pumpkin pie recipe. Let’s live a little! Continue reading

Lightened Up Bread Pudding

December 7, 2014

Happy holidays everyone!

I, as I imagine you are too, am knee-deep getting ready for the holidays. Baking, shopping, wrapping and decorating – it’s all happening at once, just like always. In between this craziness though, my sweet tooth never wanes, and I’m always on the hunt for new desserts that satisfy that and don’t expand my waistline.

If you’re anything like me, and you like the ooey, gooey, goodness of bread pudding, you’ll love this lightened up version of bread pudding I whipped up recently.
