My Sugar Addiction

My Sugar Addiction

  I’d like to share a story with you all.  For many years, I have been happy with my eating habits.  While far from perfect, I have had a good balance of healthy foods and indulgences, and was able to eat in a way that makes me feel good.  Then I got pregnant with myRead More

Cookie Dough Snack Balls

Cookie Dough Snack Balls

A few months ago I told you about one of our new favorite snacks – these Fudgy Snack Balls – which continue to be a staple in our rotation.  The concept is really flexible, though, with variations on this date/nut ball theme all over the internet.  So in the spirit of experimentation, I decided toRead More

I have to confess, I’ve been holding out on you.  I first discovered this recipe last summer, and even though it was HUGELY successful I haven’t gotten around to sharing until now!  For that, I apologize, but hopefully once you go and make these you will forgive me.

Chocolate or Vanilla Egg-Free Cupcakes with Chocolate Fudge or Vanilla Frosting

As I mentioned in this post about my munchkin’s 4th birthday, in order to make the party more enjoyable for the kids there who have food allergies, I used this recipe for egg-free cupcakes, which also happen to be light and moist and delicious.  And best of all, both the cupcakes and frosting are incrediblyRead More

Brownies – without the eggs!

I have been very fortunate in that so far, neither of my girls have any food allergies (nor do hubby or I!).  My young niece, on the other hand, has not been so lucky, and cannot eat nuts or eggs.  Because she is often placed in the unfair position of not being able to shareRead MoreRead More

People like to talk about seasonal food, but with modern transportation and grocery stores, it’s sometimes easy to forget that most of us do not live in an area where a wide variety of produce grows year-round.  And yet even though you can pretty much always get things like lettuce, carrots, bananas, and apples, inRead MoreRead More

Coconut Granola Bars

Coconut Granola Bars

Most of you are probably unaware, but I have been obsessively making various kinds of granola and protein bars for months. I have a serious addiction to NuGo Organic Double Dark Chocolate protein bars, which I have been trying to break for ages. Not only are they expensive and loaded with sugar, but I hateRead More

A few days ago I told you about the Oatmeal Flax Cookie recipe I found on the King Arthur Flour website, and hinted at another great recipe to come.  Well, I am so excited to share this one.  Many of my other cookie recipes are delicious but hearty and more healthy tasting…the type of cookieRead More

If you’ve been following my posts about the baby naming we hosted for our little peanut, you’ll know I found a new chocolate muffin recipe to try out on my guests.   These muffins really could pass for dessert, but I figured for a special event, having some decadent choices to go with all ofRead More
