Banana Nut Muffins

I always buy bananas with the intention of eating them for breakfast, but when I am running out the door in the morning I never seem to want one. Several days go by until I realize my bunch has turned brown and soft and I have to make banana bread muffins immediately to avoid wasting…

Breakfast Egg Muffins

I am not a morning person. I wish I was one of those people who enjoy waking up at the crack of dawn and running 3 miles, but I snooze my alarm at 8am every day. As a result my breakfast is usually an energy bar, or nothing at all. Until now. I am very…

Hay Stacks (Fritos Taco Salad)

This is one of the regular dinner rotations from my childhood. Growing up we called it haystacks, but as an adult I realize most people call them taco salads. This is another recepie you can easily sub your favorite ingredients into which is why I like it so much Ingredients: Fritos (or other corn chips)…

Special K Loaf

This is a family recipe that I grew up on. My mother was a vegetarian when I was young and this was in the regular dinner rotation. When I try and explain what Special K loaf is, I often get confused, amused, and sometimes disgusted expressions in return. I can see how “vegetarian meatloaf” might…

Sweet Potato Fries with Goat Cheese Dip

This was a total experiment. I love sweet potato fries, but ketchup isn’t my favorite dipper for them. Because they are so sweet, I wanted something tangy to balance them out. I just pulled out stuff I had on hand, and I was pleasantly surprised at what I ended up with. I love tangy and…

Healthy Baked Apple Chips

I wish I could tell you that I have the self control to keep these yummy snacks on hand. But if I’m being totally honest, they never last more than 20 minutes after I pull them out of the oven. They are an absolutely perfect substitute for potato chips and a fabulously guilt free late…

Delightful Sugar Cookie Jam Pockets

I recently discovered that it is possible to have jelly filled cookies and my whole world has changed for the better. This recipe is from Stone Wall Kitchen but I added my own suggestions and flare. I like to test out new recipes by bringing the food to work and seeing if any is left…

Broccoli Cheddar Soup

There are few words to describe how much I love broccoli cheddar soup.  (Immensely and wholeheartedly come to mind) So as you can probably imagine, I make frequent trips to Panera so I can indulge myself. Well, thanks to this recipe, now I can enjoy my favorite creamy and cheesy appetizer from home! I actually…

Olive U

I am a big fan of delicious and quick food. Sometimes it can be hard to find a place that checks both boxes, but this is definitely one of them! Conveniently located on PGA Blvd Olive U is nestled in the Trader Joe’s plaza. Upon walking in the door I immediately noticed the place was…

Nutella Cinnamon Fudge

I love chocolate…and nutella…and cinnamon. Which is why I LOVE this amazing fudge recipe. It’s something that I have been perfecting over the last couple years and I am quite proud of it. I often bring this to work and parties and it disappears so fast sometimes I don’t even get any! Make your own…
