Easy Homemade Vanilla Almond Lattes 1

As of late, I have come to terms with the following regarding myself and coffee:

  1. As an adult, it turns out I actually am a coffee drinker.
  2. I don’t like my coffee super strong and straight-up the way I drank it in law school (basically for rocket fuel); instead, I much prefer a medium roast brewed in a French press with a splash of whole milk or if I’m feeling indulgent, half and half.
  3. And a little flavor can be fun.

Breakfast Pineapple and Pearl Barley Pilaf

Breakfast Pineapple and Pearl Barley Pilaf 1

This Breakfast Pineapple and Pearl Barley Pilaf will fuel up your morning! One of the nice things about the change of weather (which hasn’t happened in full force yet here in Northern Virginia, but the temps have definitely started to cool down pleasantly), is that there are less bugs. Now, let me say, although ants in my kitchen are enough to send me into a two-hour cleaning frenzy and I really can’t do camping because of how much I hate the fact that I can never just get clean, bugs never really bothered me much. That is, until I got to Virginia. Here we might […]...

It’s been a while since I talked about our pudding obsession. Our obsession hasn’t gone anywhere, but I don’t want to bombard and overwhelm you with pudding, of all things. That would just be weird....

Lemon-Vanilla Almond Cake {Paleo}

Lemon-Vanilla Almond Cake {Paleo}

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.)...

Apple-Almond Streusel Muffins

Apple-Almond Streusel Muffins 1

Have I ever told you about my mom’s apple pie? It’s killer. She always makes it deep-dish style (like Chicago pizza). Sometimes she’ll make it with a double crust and sometimes she’ll make it with what she calls a “French crumble topping”, and her thick apple layer is perfectly spiced and sweetened. It is hands-down the best apple pie. In the world. (Tall claim, but I’m sticking to it…but I won’t argue if you tell me the same about your mom’s pie.)...

Mocha Almond Fudgsicles

Anyone else remember Swiss Mocha-flavored soft-serve growing up? It was one of my favorite flavors, and is definitely worthy of a healthier makeover in popsicle form. So recently, that’s exactly what I did. And I have a funny story about these popsicles…...

Nutty Biscotti {7 Days of Festive Holiday Treats}

DSC_5900(small)

Where you live, does it snow for Christmas? It used to snow here religiously every year. (Actually, I remember being a kid and trick-or-treating in the snow on Halloween some years!) Alas, we haven’t been guaranteed a white Christmas for the past four years or so. Which is a crying shame, really…there’s just something about a blanket of white that makes Christmas feel so special....

Toasted Coconut-Almond Biscotti {Giveaway!}

DSC_9673(small)

I have a picture of each of the seasons in my mind…summer is grill parties, fall is harvest dinners, and winter is comforting stews, roasts, and casseroles.  But every time cheery spring arrives with its bright blossoms, chirping birds, and sunny days, I feel like brunch is in order....
