Starting Keto: What I’m Doing, How It’s Helping & What I’ve Learned

I’ve had so many friends (and even some strangers!) asking me recently about the posts I’ve been making on Instagram and Facebook about my keto lifestyle change, so I thought I’d put together a quick little introduction to what it is, and answer some of the questions I’ve gotten so far. Keep in mind thatContinue reading “Starting Keto: What I’m Doing, How It’s Helping & What I’ve Learned”

Watercolor Recipe: Vegan Elvis Cupcakes

During Sinéad’s visit, we experimented with vegan baking – more experimentation for me, since I hadn’t baked something intentionally vegan more than a time or two and a lot of fun for Sinéad since we decided to “wing it” with our measurements. As such, here is a one-of-a-kind (each time, lol) sort of recipe that isContinue reading “Watercolor Recipe: Vegan Elvis Cupcakes”

Recipe: Simple & Quick Banana Nut Bread

When I was little, I loved anything with bananas in it. Banana baby food was my favorite as a tiny child and my love affair with the fruit grew and grew – along with a growing suspicion that eating delicious things probably shouldn’t hurt. As I got older, my mouth became more and more uncomfortable with theContinue reading “Recipe: Simple & Quick Banana Nut Bread”

Recipe: Swirly Nutella Cheesecake Squares

First, I need to let you know that my inaccurate cutting led to these being more rectangular than the title of this recipe would lead you to believe, but we’re going to pretend that isn’t the case – may the odds of even cutting be ever in your favor! Second, I have some seriously talentedContinue reading “Recipe: Swirly Nutella Cheesecake Squares”

Recipe: Stuffed Lasagna Roll-Ups

By the time I’m writing this, all of these delicious little roll-ups have already been devoured. Rest in peace in our bellies, sweethearts! These are AWESOME to make for dinner for 3 main reasons: 1) They’re easy & fast – even with prep, lasagna boiling and roll-up forming, the entire meal takes less than an hourContinue reading “Recipe: Stuffed Lasagna Roll-Ups”

Recipe: Green Summer Smoothie Cubes

I know a lot of people think putting vegetables in their sweet treats is really weird. I’ve heard all the “that looks like baby poop” jokes I can stand, thanks. I will still keep reaping the benefits of this wonderfully delicious smoothie, and I’ll still keep laughing in the face of those who inhibit theContinue reading “Recipe: Green Summer Smoothie Cubes”

Recipe: Frozen Microwaveable Breakfast Sandwiches

I love convenience. Like, I really, really love convenience. I’m so busy between going to school, homework, working full time + and maintaining basic things like sleep habits and hygiene that it doesn’t leave very much room for making full breakfasts or keeping up with any sort of “healthy” diet. To keep my options as healthyContinue reading “Recipe: Frozen Microwaveable Breakfast Sandwiches”

Recipe: Rosemary + Citrus Cookies

Finally, the third part of my “I love rosemary” extravaganza!  This is also the second dessert-type recipe I’ve made, and none of them have included any beef or lamb or pork or any meat at all! I’m not saying that it isn’t DELICIOUS on a fat slab of carcass, but what I am saying is thatContinue reading “Recipe: Rosemary + Citrus Cookies”

Recipe: The Cake is a Lie! — The Portal Cake

In honor of last year’s Portal 2 release, I thought it’d be fun to wait until the midnight release (I had pre-ordered the game 3 months before! :D) while baking a yummy real life replica of the cake from the original game. Above is a photoshopped copy of the cake I made as well as aContinue reading “Recipe: The Cake is a Lie! — The Portal Cake”
