Breakfast of Champions

I do love breakfast. I have friends who skip breakfast, some whose breakfast consists of a triple Venti nonfat latte, and others who wouldn’t mind a carton of eggs and a side of beef for breakfast. I like to start my day with a solid meal, plus lots of hot, strong coffee. My penchant...

Skinny Boston Cream Pie Oatmeal

A 5-ingredient recipe for vanilla custard-flavored oatmeal topped with a rich dark chocolate drizzle. Packed with protein & surprisingly healthy!     For the week I turned 16, I convinced my family to fly to Boston for our summer vacation, with the not-so-secret ulterior motive of seeing a Red Sox’s game as part of...

This salad dressing pairs well with any salad that has an Asian flair. It's featured with Ahi tuna salad, but I also love it with salad topped with blackened chicken. My inspiration for this one comes from one of my favorite cookbooks, Santa Fe Light &...

Homemade Drumsticks

I love Drumsticks Ice Cream Bars. I don’t love the price. Making your own at home is so much easier – and you can use whatever flavors you have on hand. Plus, you can make them with sprinkles. I love chopped peanuts, but man. I love my sprinkles too. My mom used to buy...

Easy Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream

Today is a super special day! It’s a day that requires peanut butter ice cream that’s filled with chunks of fudgy brownie. Honestly, every day is special enough for this Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream, I know. But today is really extra important. It’s my husband’s birthday! Birthdays aren’t really important to him. He’d...
