Chocolate Sheet Cake Brownies

These should come with a warning: make at your own risk. If you don’t make these for a large group or party, you will eat them all. This recipe makes so many that I took a big towering plate of brownies to work – and still had some leftover to…

Weekly Menu August 25

“If my life had a flavor, it would be coffee.” I found this quote on Pinterest the other day, and it perfectly describes how I’m feeling on this cool Monday morning! Getting up early for the gym was a struggle, and the crisp air foreshadowing fall didn’t make it any…

Reese’s Cookie Cake

You know when people ask silly questions like “If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?” Which – sidenote – doesn’t even make sense, because if there was only one food item left in the world, you probably wouldn’t be able…

Strawberry Peach Smoothie

We all know moderation is key. I talk a lot about butter and sugar here, but realistically those aren’t staples in my every day life. At least, not always! I try to balance my crazy sweet tooth with healthier foods and workouts. I’ve always been a gym girl and love…

My Grandma’s Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon rolls are in my blood. I mean it: I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s butter and sugar running through my veins. I didn’t take many science classes in college, though, so I can’t confirm if that’s actually possible or not (ugh). But, you get the idea. I grew up making…

Weekly Menu August 4

How perfect does this summer pizza look? I want to make it every night this week… while drinking this Green Tea Peach Bellini. And then, I want to make this Ginger Peach Galette with Almond Crust. It took so much restraint to keep from buying a giant carton of peaches…
