Pumpkin Spice Cookies

Why is Starbucks so expensive? Seriously, the other day I dropped by to buy myself a nice Pumpkin Spice Latte as a treat… and left five minutes later six dollars poorer. And only a small (aka “tall”) coffee to show for it! If you’re like me, and not willing to spend a fortune on coffee…

Green Smoothie Bowl

The only thing that’s been on my mind this week is: sleep. It’s funny how when you don’t have something, you find yourself wanting (and appreciating) it more than ever before. This week, I had this experience with sleep- as I found myself extremely sleep deprived and craving nothing more than a few hours catching…

Healthier Egg in the Basket

Simply delicious. That’s the perfect way to describe this recipe: while it’s unbelievably simple (and in fact only takes about 5 minutes to make!), it’s absolutely delicious. After all, who doesn’t love eggs and toast? My favorite things about this recipe are how healthy you can make it with just a few simple swaps and…

Cinnamon Apple French Toast

Autumn Apple Spice Cake

The crisp fall wind swirls around you, spinning scarlet leaves through the air, as you reach into the depths of a tall apple tree. Your fingers gripping a glossy Granny Smith, you twist then pull it easily off the tree, smiling as the weight of the apple in your hand sends visions of the delightful…

PB&J Muffin in a Mug

I’m not quite sure what happened, but somewhere along the line this muffin ended up tasting like cake. With a super fluffy texture, light vanilla bean taste, and just the right amount of sweetness, this PB&J muffin could seriously rival any slice of cake… And probably come out on top. Especially when you compare the…
