Gluten-Free Vanilla Almond Cookies

Food opinions are as dividing as a game of Monopoly. We as humans enjoy our food a certain way, and it’s shocking to hear others eat it differently. Take, for example, the pineapple on pizza feud. Either you love it, or you despise it, and like most internet debates, there can be no middle ground….

Apple Pie Pancakes (GF)

I recently got married and went to Professor Google to ask how to legally change my surname. As per usual with Professor Google, I got sidetracked and found myself laughing through an article about the strangest legal name changes I’ve ever heard. I’ve saved that tab for a while now, and the time has come…

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…

Gluten-Free Zucchini Muffins

*Let’s talk about focus during an afternoon concentration slump. We live in the age of the monkey brain. Our minds are constantly stimulated by information from our phones, TVs, ads, and anything else we see in the course of a day. So when the time comes to sit and work, be it homework, a college thesis,…

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,…

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…
