Pumpkin Spice Granola Bars

Thank goodness I came back before pumpkin spice said good-bye! I’ve been dreaming about these Pumpkin Spice Granola Bars since September. Yes, dreaming, night and day. It’s like they’ve been haunting me. In a good way. Haunting my thoughts and making my mouth water. Some might say I’m obsessed, but I like to think of it as passionate thoughts. I’m a foodie, I have

Soft Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

You are going to love these Soft Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies! I’m not just saying this either because I’m a foodie. I first tried Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies a few years ago and didn’t much care for them. I was like, “meh.” I much prefer Oatmeal Raisin Cookies over these! I can live without these cookies in my life. After

Black and White Banana Bites

Trying to stay cool during this heatwave almost makes you forget that we are nearing the end of summer. Yes, school is just around the corner! This can be a happy moment for some of you! And maybe a not-so-happy moment for those who are already dreading the back-to-school shopping coming up in your near future. But let’s just not

Apricot Peach Honey Granola Bars

I have finally made a nut-free, bake-free Granola bar! I got the idea for these after making my Homemade Cough Drops earlier this year. I noticed as I prepared the honey for my cough drops, it became thickened, almost like a caramel. Since then, I’ve had the idea of making granola bars using that same preparation method for the honey.

Kiwi Blueberry Popsicles

I love summertime with the warmth of the sunshine and longer days. On the other hand, I could do without the bugs, especially the mosquitoes and flies, and the sweltering heat. I’ve lived on both the west coast and the east coast and I have to say, humidity makes it hotter than it really is! I grew up in California

Watermelon Popsicles

I don’t usually talk about movies here because it’s off subject for a food blog, but I just finished watching Moana on Netflix and I loved it! Moana is one of the best Disney movies I’ve seen in a long time! I love the characters Moana and Maui. Dwayne Johnson is the personification of Maui! The facial expressions and the

Chai Tea Eggs

I recently discovered Tea Eggs around Easter when I was trying to find natural alternatives to dying eggs. I immediately fell in love with them! Tea eggs are a traditional snack in China. You might also hear them referred to as Marbled Tea Eggs, Chinese Tea Eggs, or Tea Leaf Eggs. Hard-boiled eggs steeped in black tea with spices like star

Turmeric Lime Roasted Chickpeas

I have a recipe for you today that will satisfy those salty cravings while also being good for you, Turmeric Lime Roasted Chickpeas. So put away that bag of potato chips. Ha, caught ya, didn’t I? Although I have a sweet tooth, okay, LOTS of sweet teeth! I sometimes crave salty foods too and these Turmeric Lime Roasted Chickpeas will

Eggnog Chia Protein Pudding

This egg-free and dairy-free Eggnog Chia Protein Pudding is a healthy way to start your New Year! Chia seeds are one of the top superfoods, full of fiber, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids, along with other vitamins and minerals. Earlier this week I was in a funk. I was eating healthy and getting enough sleep, yet I felt like I

Pistachio Cranberry Donuts

While everyone else is baking up Holiday cookies, I’m over here baking up Holiday donuts, these Pistachio Cranberry Donuts. I call them Holiday donuts because pistachios are green and the cranberries bring the red for that festive look. I love making donuts! Mainly because they’re easy and quick to make, you can have a batch made under 30 minutes! But also,
