Bittersweet Coconut Salted Almond Bark

Bittersweet Coconut Salted Almond Bark

I don’t generally have candy in the house, but Ghirardelli bittersweet chips suffice just fine and are a pantry staple. My husband and daughter are also big fans and to be honest, I think in moderation dark chocolate is an important party of a healthy diet. Key word there is moderation; not gonna lie,...

Grilled PB, Banana and Honey Sandwiches

Grilled PB, Banana and Honey Sandwiches

This is a recipe I’d first done in the classroom with my high school students; quick enough to still do some notes/take a quiz, and the way I figured a much more practical lesson for their immediate future than an Alfredo sauce or some such. Since then this has become a lunch/snack/light dinner option...

Chewy Brown Sugar Cinnamon Cookies

Chewy Brown Sugar Cinnamon Cookies

Today at lunch I had an egg, toast, and a whole bunch of asparagus. As a natural diuretic I could just picture the asparagus doing it’s work – any puffy pregnancy bloat just disappearing magically.

Most broccoli soups are crammed with so much cream and cheddar cheese that any semblance of health goes out the window....

Lemon Buttermilk Pie with Blueberry Compote

I’ve really grown to dislike “stuff”. I hate clutter and though my house isn’t always clean, it’s usually “picked up” pretty well. I live in a small space so it doesn’t take much to look like a disaster zone. The single category of “stuff” I hoard, however, is recipes. I’ve had this pie in...

Challah Bread

Challah Bread

For me, there’s nothing quite like warm, homemade bread. Every year my mom makes “Easter Bread” which is actually a raisin studded challah. She hands them out like breath mints to family and friends and our little loaf doesn’t last a day – toasted and spread with butter it’s achingly wonderful. Now, this isn’t...

Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bar

Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bar

The other day I went right to the grocery store from the gym and forgot to pack a snack (I’m like Chrissy in Now and Then – I need to eat every two hours). I saw that the Luna Protein bars were a dollar a pop and honestly I think I tore the wrapper...
