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 is … Continue reading

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 the … Continue reading

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 talented … Continue reading

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.

Recipe: Butternut Spice Bisque

My lovely friend Natalie sent me this fantastic recipe by Martha Stewart for Butternut Squash Bisque that set my heart ablaze with desire for this soup. I’ve only had butternut squash in chili and a Trader Joe’s brand soup before, and although I liked it, neither experiences really captured my taste buds enough to reattempt … Continue reading

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 healthy … Continue reading

Recipe: The Best Coffee, Ever

Just in time for Monday morning (which, as we all know, kinda sorta sucks!) — The best coffee I’ve ever had OF ALL TIME! I love coffee. I really, really love coffee.  I spent my first two semesters in college staying up until 4 AM with black coffee, studying algebra and Latin and cursing the textbook … Continue reading

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 that … Continue reading
