Despite it being 85 degrees outside, I’m still baking 🤷🏼♀️. These blondies are so easy to make, only require 7 ingredients, use one bowl, and are done in just about 25 minutes. If you’re making them vegan, check your chocolate chips to be sure they don’t contain milk. Toll House chips are NOT vegan (all … More Vegan Chocolate Peanut Butter Blondies
I’m back! If you saw on my instagram feed, I recently got married 🙂 I didn’t anticipate taking a break from the blog, but wedding planning (especially in the last few weeks leading up to the big day!) kind of overtook my life for a little while. I’m happy to say Andrew and I had … More Sweet and Spicy Pepperoni Pizza
This past weekend, I so desperately needed a freshly baked cookie, that I almost walked to our local bodega and bought pre-made cookie dough. I decided to give my Pinterest board a once-over and see if anything stood out as easy and/or fast. I came across this recipe for possibly the easiest blondies ever. Averie’s recipe calls … More Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies
If you had asked me when I was younger (heck, if you asked me a year ago) what my favorite cupcake flavor was, I would have 100% definitely said vanilla with vanilla frosting. Not that I’m the most boring person in the world, but I like to judge a cupcakery/bakery on their execution of the … More The Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting
I’ve been trying over the last few weeks to start getting in meal planning mode so that weeknight dinners can come together really quickly. I pretty much always have a protein and a veggie planned, but almost always overlook a starch. I’ve never been too into carby things like pasta and potatoes, but served a certain … More Super Easy Sesame Noodles
Way back when, I said I’d share my favorite Blondie recipe. Almost 10 months later, I’m making good on my promise 🙂 The reason I love this recipe is three-fold. First, you only need a single mixing bowl. The entire recipe can be made while only dirtying a couple things. Second, it literally takes minutes … More Blondies!
I know by now you guys are aware of my popcorn obsession. I thought I’d seen (and eaten) it all, until I came across this take on one of my favorite childhood snacks. Typically, this is made with Chex cereal, but this simply replaces the cereal with popcorn. I must say, this may be better … More Popcorn Muddy Buddies
One of my favorite things to grow in my garden (thanks to Andrew who has the green thumb in the house…) is basil. Not only is it easy to maintain, but it grows super fast and tastes good in just about every dish. As a result of the field of basil growing outside, I find … More Pea Mint Pesto Crostini
When it comes to making biscuits, there are a million tips and tricks out there promising to give you the flakiest and lightest results. After making many, many biscuits, following a variety of these tips, I’ve found the three essentials things that make the perfect biscuit: 1. Cold butter – this is crucial to getting … More Buttermilk Biscuits
Weeknight meals tend to become super repetitive in our house. Now that I’m not on the road as much, I’ve been able to experiment with some new healthy recipes. One of the absolute easiest and healthiest ways to make a quick weeknight dinner involves “Fish En Papillote”, which is the fancy French term for fish … More Fish and Veggies in Parchment
Now that the sun has finally decided to show its face in New England, I’ve been spending as much time as possible outdoors. This past weekend, I went for a long run outside (for the first time since my half marathon in October!), Baxter went for a dip in the ocean, and Andrew and I strolled around … More Honey Sesame Pulled Chicken
Scones, or triangular biscuits, are one of the things that I make all the time. You need very few ingredients to put them together (usually items found in the pantry and fridge), you can go sweet or savory, and you really can’t mess them up. For this version, I combine frozen strawberries with white chocolate chips, … More Strawberries and Cream Scones
Quite recently, I discovered sesame oil. I’m not sure what took me so long to finally buy it, but I’m so glad I did. Sesame oil is a dark brown color, and has a very intense and nutty flavor, and you only need a tiny bit to impart a ton of flavor. It works extremely well … More Asian Turkey Meatballs
One of my absolute favorite foods is popcorn. I love that you can eat a lot (compared to something like chips), and there are a ton of different ways to enjoy it. I showed you my Oscar spread last year, and in coming up with an idea for the Oscars this year, my mind instantly … More Popcorn: Three Ways!
It’s almost Oscars time, and I could NOT be more excited! I’ve made an effort over the past few years to really get into the Oscars and see all the movies ahead of time so that when the awards shows arrive, I am prepared. This year I got completely sucked in and saw every nominated … More Easy Chicken Pad Thai
