Gluten-Free Chocolate Cupcakes

So my birthday passed. That brought on much introspection. Now you may be wondering, “Sarah! What is with your blog posts? Why are you giving us your theories and rambling nonsense? Why don’t you just talk about cooking or how delicious everything is, like other food bloggers?” That is what my introspection was about. I…

Paleo Banana Mug Cake

Phase noun 1.1 A stage in a person’s psychological development, especially a period of temporary difficulty during adolescence or a particular stage during childhood. Sorry, Oxford, but I have to disagree. Phases can occur past adolescence. And not necessarily the bad kind. In my humble observations, I’ve found that some people are more prone to…

Healthy Sweet Potato Muffins

To those who don’t know (AKA most of you,) I work as a theatre director at a high school. I don’t think any of the students know I have this blog… (Hi?) Either way it doesn’t matter since I will not be discussing any of them. (But I still can, so behave, girls!) Towards the end…

Flourless Banana Muffins

By definition, I am a foodie. I try new foods, invent recipes, photograph dishes, and post them on the internet. The problem is I dislike that term. Ironic? Yeah, it is. I don’t like the word ‘belly’ or ‘bae’ either. The sound of ‘foodie’ just feels off to me. It sounds like a fan name, like…

Carob “Hot Chocolate”

Let’s keep it real. Today, I’d like to make a confession about… Coffee. If you have been following me for a while, you’ll know that I love coffee. In one previous post, I discuss the types of coffee. In another, I talk about the types of coffee drinkers. Then there’s the Maple Cinnamon Latte post,…

Peanut Butter Bark (Low-Carb)

There’s no wrong way to make food. After all, cooking is a creative process. Foods and spices are like colors you mix together to create a culinary masterpiece. Some people say chickpeas don’t belong in brownies. Yet this happened. Others say peanut butter does not belong in soup. Yet this happened. You get my drift? Speaking…

Vanilla Protein Pancakes

From the obesity epidemic to the rising divorce rate, political opposition, terrorism, and violence, we as a society have many prominent issues. Yet there is a problem that every person faces every day, from teenagers to the elderly, no matter your race or culture. It’s a force that diminishes our health and overall quality of…

Flourless Peanut Butter Blondies

I didn’t know blondies existed until I was in ninth grade. A girl brought a huge tray of what looked like cookie bars to play practice and gave everyone a piece. After all, nothing brings people together like free food. “Want a blondie?” a friend offered me. I asked what those were, and she replied,…

Vegan Banana Waffles

Pop the champagne, blow the balloons, and pass out the cake, it’s time to celebrate! After years of waiting, I have acquired… (drum roll, please) a waffle maker! Yes, this is a big deal. Don’t judge me. During a casual conversation with my sister-in-law, I mentioned that I like waffles, to which she replied, “You…

Mini Pink Lemonade Muffins

Pink lemonade does not make much sense at all. It makes us wonder: What is the pink in usually yellow lemonade? Some people assume it is from added strawberry or cranberry juice. Today, that may be true, but the origin of pink lemonade is a lot shadier. Josh Chetwynd, the author of How the Hot Dog…

Protein Granola Balls

Many adults like to think themselves young at heart, but some are young in appearance as well. I happen to fall into the latter category. Here’s a rule to live by: Never assume age. Whether you guess too young or too old, it can be offensive. Too many times I met someone new and they…
