apple cheesecake crumble

I’m not super active on social media.. I never post Facebook statuses and I usually tweet once a week or so with sarcastic life observations, if and when they strike me and are 160 characters are less. More often than not I’ll type out a tweet and decide “that’s not funny” and delete it. But…

portuguese sweet bread

Another installment of Easter food that is coming at you about 349 days too early. An Easter tradition in our family used to be wearing coordinated outfits lovingly made by my mom. Yes I actually was one of the ugliest children in the world. The GS informed me that one of the Easter traditions in…

oatmeal dark chocolate cookies

Happy St. Patrick’s Day everyone! What would we do if people embraced the major holidays of every culture the way they do with St. Patty’s and Cinco de Mayo? I realize that both are somewhat drinking oriented which makes everyone decide that they must be partially of Irish/Mexican descent, but really. For example, we could…

southwestern stuffed sweet potatoes

In keeping with my new year’s resolution to be more fun, I went out both nights this weekend. WILD. On Friday I wore one of the shirts I made because I felt like showing off my handiwork/justifying all the time I’ve spent on my sewing machine. This girl came up to me and asked me…

whole wheat apple crumble cookie cake

I’m back in Baltimore! This is exciting because I was really missing my gym. I taught Body Pump on Wednesday night when I got back and I had SIXTY FIVE people in my class and 12 on the ย wait list. This has never happened before. Usually I have about 30 or 40 but the room…

buffalo chicken pull-apart bread

What are you asking Santa for this year? Kevin, in case you’re wondering, is looking for a Kindle Fire and Beats by Dre headphones. His justification is that he’ll start reading more if he gets a Kindle, and will start listening to the Rocky soundtrack before his basketball games if he gets $300 headphones. I’m…

oatmeal granola chocolate chip cookies

Is everyone sick of cookie recipes? I hope not. ‘Tis the season of cookie trays. I highly recommend these. I often go through phases of eating the same thing over and over. Some last longer than others (I’m looking at you, PB&J). This happened with my brown rice/chicken/veggie combo, pasta with quick and easy tomato…

chocolate souffle

Sorry if you’re in a sugar coma from Halloween and here I am bringing you something sweet. Actually, I’m not sorry. I had one piece of candy over the Halloween festivities and it was a Twizzler so that doesn’t even count. What else is ticking me off about Halloween celebrations? Well I spent a good…

spice cake with amaretto glaze

Happy Halloween everyone! One of my favorite holidays, for sure. I love any excuse to get crafty and look like a fool. Some of my favorite Halloween-related things going on thus far… This video of two of Ellen’s employees going through the Walking Dead maze. If you somehow haven’t seen it, please watch. I emailed…

pumpkin blondies: two ways

Oh hey, Libby. We meet again. I didn’t have class yesterday morning and therefore had a pretty extensive to-do list. That list was somehow scrapped in favor of making two batches of pumpkin blondies and going to the new DSW in Canton to buy rain boots. My old ones ripped about 2 years ago and…
