coconut cream pie

I have three favorite pies: chocolate chess pie, bourbon chocolate chip pecan pie, and coconut cream pie. Not just any coconut cream pie, but the kind with a flaky crust, golden toasted coconut, rich, pastry cream-like coconut filling, and the fluffiest homemade whipped cream. My love of coconut cream pie is not necessarily because of…

lemon poppy seed coconut macaroons

Coconut is a divisive ingredient. I am obviously strongly on team coconut, but a few members of my family are vehemently opposed to the contentious ingredient appearing in any recipe. I get it, but I will forever continue to make coconut goodies for the good of the rest of us ;) Sometimes I can hide…

coconut cake with earl grey buttercream

If places could be a love language, cute local coffee shops would be one of mine. I think it is safe to say the same about my tea-loving parents. Last year, their New Years resolution was to go to their local coffee shop every Saturday they were in town, and they did! They know most…

pistachio coconut granola bars

Pistachio coconut granola bars are healthy, portable and packed with delicious flavors. Not to mention studded with green, yellow and purple from the colorful nuts. In the past several years I have become a huge fan of nuts. I would grab a few handfuls of raw pecans and almonds every day after I got home from track practice…

healthier banana muffins

I don’t like bananas, but somehow, banana bread is one of my favorite comfort foods. There is something about the light cinnamon flavor and the crumb of the quick bread that makes me enjoy my morning, tea, or afternoon snack a little more. I don’t know if it is because I don’t make banana bread…

earl grey shortbread cookies

I grew up in a tea-loving family. My parents have a tea drawer in the kitchen and I, the only tea drinker in my apartment, have enough tea to fill a drawer of my own. We don’t mess around when it comes to a good cup of tea. I didn’t try coffee until I was…

memorial day treats

This has been one of those weeks where I can’t determine what day of the week it is. I went to a workout class on Wednesday night and the instructor said “happy Monday, we made it through!” before realizing that it was actually Wednesday, so I’m clearly not the only one. Maybe the expectation of…

healthy breakfast cookies

Tis’ the season for new resolutions and healthy eating. While I don’t really do New Year’s resolutions, I do like having a healthy reset after an indulgent holiday season. Healthy breakfast cookies are the perfect solution. Often times we struggle with healthy eating not because we are unsure of what is healthy and what is…
