Pineapple Yogurt Bowl

Go on a backyard vacation with my easy pineapple yogurt bowls! I am missing my beloved Caribbean terribly today and was inspired to take a little vacation in my own backyard with a tropical breakfast: pineapple yogurt bowls. My dog Gabby was into it. My longtime readers know that I adore pineapple. It’s one of my…

Simple Vacation Breakfast at Home

My dear friend Eric is in Hawaii right now and his photos are making me miss my island time! On a whim this morning, I decided to bake up another batch of my Coconut Muffins since I had coconut milk that needed to be used up and, well, one thing led to another, and I…

Maple Berry Yogurt Parfaits

This is hardly a recipe but as my loyal readers know, I’ve had a ton of requests for more or less serving idea so here we are! One brunch hack I love is to serve fruit, yogurt, and granola in either a wine glass, martini glass, or margarita glass. This frees up valuable placemat real…

Restaurant Style Fruit & Yogurt Bowl

I’m going to shoot straight with you. This is not really a “recipe” but I’ve had tons of requests to post my many non-recipes this year so here we go! First of all, serve this in a wide, flat bowl for a glamorous way to start your day. During the week I may toss fruit…

Tropical Strawberry Banana Smoothie

My mother is a saint for how many times she washed her blender for me growing up. I’m sure this is an exaggeration, but I feel like I easily had 3-4 smoothies a week during my childhood. It’s a great way to get kids to eat fruit and such a healthy practice that I still try to…

Sun-dried Tomato Tabbouleh

I made tabbouleh in my dorm room nearly every week of my college career.(To read about my lifelong love of Greek food, click here.) Why? Because all you need is boiling water! I’m sure it comes as no surprise to you that I was always thinking up dishes I could whip up in my dorm room with no…

Homemade Tzatziki

All of my lovely readers already know how much I adore Greek food. (I’m often heard at cocktail parties saying, “I swear I studied abroad in Greece for the feta!”) Luckily Greek food happens to be some of the healthiest food you can eat so January is a great time to try it if you…

Pumpkin Pancakes with Toasted Hazelnuts and Cinnamon Sugar

I would like to go on record to say that I loved pumpkin before it was trendy. I want to start a support group for those of us who were pro-pumpkin before the famous pumpkin spice latte. Pre-PSL Pumpkin People, perhaps? I don’t actually care for the PSL – I’m a cinnamon dolce latte gal…

Homemade Raspberry Almond Popsicles

  This recipe just screams summer. This was my very first time making homemade popsicles after commandeering my mom’s popsicle mold. (Sorry, Mom.) What a fun treat!The almond extract complements the raspberry flavor rather than overpowers it for just a hint of almond. These are crazy healthy and delightfully tart. If you’re not a fan of tart…
