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 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…

Every January I get the urge to make granola. Once the new year hits, I want a fairly healthy breakfast and snack that I can take on the go, combining my renewed ambitions to amp up my time management skills and make healthy choices. The only problem is that I love it so much that…

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…
