zucchini bread

I love quick breads. I eat them for breakfast, mid-morning snack, afternoon snack, and dessert. No matter the flavor – banana bread, pumpkin bread, zucchini bread, carrot cake loaf, cranberry streusel quick bread – they never last long in our house. This healthier version of zucchini bread is no exception. Not only do I love…

toast toppings, four ways

Each year as students head back to school, I find myself thinking about my own back to school memories. Some of the memories that stick out the most are the dreaded early morning wake-up calls and the bus and carpool rides that were always accompanied by a paper towel wrapped slice of toast.

It is officially the holiday season, and with that comes festive appetizer spreads! You know how much I love a good cheese board, and warm roasted butternut squash dip makes any fall or winter cheese board even better. I actually made a version of this dip a few years ago for a baby shower I…

peach, basil, honey, and whipped ricotta toast

I can’t believe I’m giving you a “recipe” for toast. I’m almost sorry, but the flavors of this peach, basil, honey, and whipped ricotta toast are so good that I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share it before the summer stone fruit disappear. There is a coffee shop nearby that has a toast bar…

everything cream cheese pastries

Back in September, my family spent a weekend in Delaware for my cousin’s wedding. One of our favorite things to do when we visit new places is to find a good coffee shop, and that we did. We popped into a cute college-town coffee shop on rainy Saturday morning to grab warm drinks. While we…

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…

whiskey caramel popcorn

I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day yesterday! With Valentine’s Day behind us, I’m moving on to the next exciting event – the Oscars! There are so many Oscar nominated movies that I want to see and just haven’t had a chance to yet. And what pairs with movies better than popcorn? And even…

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…
