Butterscotch Blondies

I volunteered to bring dessert to a potluck a while back, but didn’t have time to run to the store, so I needed something that I could make with whatever I had at home. These ended up crumblier and sweeter than I anticipated, but I also have a pretty low threshold for what I consider…

Banana Oat Cakes

I needed a new breakfast idea since I was getting tired of eating yogurt everyday. I like things that I can take on the go, since I’m often rushing out the door in the mornings. This is a good breakfast-on-the-go and also works well as a snack or a small dessert. It goes great with…

Spicy Sichuan Noodles

There aren’t a lot of good Chinese food restaurants near me, so I’ve taken to trying out some of my favorite dishes at home to fulfill my Chinese food cravings. Unfortunately, I have many such cravings, so I have many more recipes to try! Spicy Sichuan Noodles I prepped the ginger, garlic, and scallions first….

Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookies

Peanut butter and chocolate is my husband’s favorite dessert combination, so this is a take on that.

I made a ton of these –…

Brown Butter Oatmeal Pancakes

We don’t normally make big breakfasts at home, but I wanted to make something special, but relatively healthy, for my husband because he’s been traveling a lot lately. Well, it probably would have been healthier if we hadn’t eaten so many and we hadn’t smothered it in maple syrup…but it was tasty so I don’t feel so bad…

Sous Vide Strip Steak & Corn on the Cob with Herb Butter

Every once in a while, I get a craving for steak. Okay that’s a lie, it’s more than once in a while. When my husband and I were in Argentina, we ate steak for lunch and dinner almost every day, and I was so very, very happy. I was less happy when I realized how…

Strawberry Mango Chia Popsicles

Man, it’s hot outside! Instead of eating ice cream all the time, I decided to turn to popsicles to be a little healthier. It’s pretty similar to making frozen yogurt (see my Strawberry Scones & Strawberry Frozen Yogurt recipe), just in a popsicle mold. Popsicles I don’t add additional sugar to these mixtures, so they’re not very…
