Toasted Coconut Banana Truffles

Girl Scout cookies are my absolute weakness. Samoas especially. There’s never been a better marriage made than that between toasted caramel and chocolate. And samoas boast both flavors, with the addition of a crunchy cookie and caramel sweetness. They almost make the 140 calories per serving worth it. Almost. Because I know that when it…

Carrot Nut Bread

If you’re trying to lose weight, do not make this bread. Sure, it’s whole wheat and doesn’t contain any butter, white sugar, or hydrogenated oils. And yes, it’s only 113 calories per serving. Which means it’s totally justifiable to enjoy with jam or grass-fed butter spread on top. And okay, okay, it is extremely easy…

Raspberry Swirl “Nice Cream”

Midnight snacks are never a good thing when you’re a food blogger. Not because of the time of night, because honestly I’m always up for a good midnight snack! But it’s the food photography that’s less than desirable at that time of night — and really, any time after sunset. Food always looks the best…

Skinny Gingerbread Latte

The best part of waking up is no longer Folgers in my cup. (See what I did there? ;)) Actually, I don’t drink Folgers brand coffee. However, recently, I’ve been finding my normal morning coffee definitely unsatisfying. The french vanilla creamer just doesn’t do it for me, I’ve gotta say. Unfortunately, I don’t have the…

Cinnamon Apple French Toast

The best French Toast I ever had was at River City Diner when I was ten, and since then, I’ve considered myself nothing less than a French-Toast Snob. In order for me to consider it even in the same ballpark as my River City French Toast, any French Toast I try must be fluffy on…

Super Refreshing Fruit-Infused Coconut Water

This coconut water is so refreshing, it’ll make you go “ahhh”. When I first tried coconut water, at a gas station halfway through an 8 hour drive to Connecticut, I was not a fan. If you’ve had coconut water before, you know it’s a bit of an acquired taste. You taste a sip expecting it…

Guilt-Free Pumpkin Dip

Pumpkin everything. What’s on your Autumn bucket list? I definitely have a couple must-do’s this season, and as I’ll be in college next fall, I want to check off as many classic fall activities as possible. After all, when I’m 100 miles away from most of my friends, going apple picking together won’t be nearly…
