With that evil temptation of a holiday coming at us this Friday, I had to take preemptive measures.
Otherwise, I knew I’d be doomed. (more…)
When I was younger, I hated any and all lemon-flavored desserts with a passion. Lemon bars, lemon meltaway cookies, and even lemon meringue pie were all on my list.
(But oddly enough, I was a big fan of super sour lemon-flavored WarHeads candy – does anyone else remember those? Incidentally, I consider this proof positive that there is no rhyme or reason to kids’ tastes.) (more…)
Like I mentioned here, I’m kind-of particular about my cake. (As Mike likes to tell me, I’m kind-of particular about a lot of food-related stuff, but that remains to be proven and is an entirely different discussion for another day.)
Anyway. I don’t think there is anything more disappointing than seeing an absolutely stunning cake and then sinking your teeth into what you think will be pure bliss, and realizing that it tastes like rubbery-textured cardboard.
Such a bummer. (more…)
When I was developing this recipe, I almost didn’t expect to like these scones. (more…)
The final treat I’m sharing in honor of Frozen Treat Week is a real doozy.
In keeping with the other two healthy treats I’ve shared for this event (3-Minute Easy Cherry-Chocolate Sorbet and Almost-Instant Healthy Mint Chocolate Chip Soft Serve), today’s treat is equally healthy. And every bit as delicious.
I’m not even kidding when I say that last summer I don’t think I touched a carton of ice cream once because of this smoothie. And that’s not to say that I didn’t crave ice cream. (more…)
By now I’m sure most of you have heard of banana soft serve. (If not, you will absolutely die when you try it.)
Also called “yonanas”, banana soft serve is frozen banana blended with whatever flavorings (like vanilla extract, cocoa powder, espresso powder, etc.) or add-ins (like toasted almonds, coconut, chocolate chips, etc.) you like. The best part is that it has the same creamy texture as soft serve ice cream. (The first time I ever saw banana soft serve was on Gena’s brilliant blog, Choosing Raw.)
As you can imagine, this delicious treat is incredibly versatile and completely perfect for when you want ice cream but don’t want ice cream. (Ladies, you know what I mean.) (more…)
There are so many things that I make for myself on a near-daily basis that I just don’t think about sharing the recipe for.
Or an almost-instant, healthy treat (that I promise tastes more indulgent than healthy), like this cherry-chocolate sorbet that can be easily whipped up when a sweet craving strikes. (more…)
So, granola. I won’t even try to sell you on it because I know you’re probably already a fan. And if you are, you will probably be interested in my Pumpkin Spice Granola, which is one of my all-time favs.
And if you’re not, I’d say avert your eyes or X out of this window…but I’m not going to say that because this granola is so unlike a traditional granola that you might just like it. (more…)
