Vegan Brownie Batter for One

Vegan Brownie Batter for One

Healthy treats that don’t taste healthy. Isn’t that like everyone’s end game?

You and I make this Vegan Cookie Dough for One way more often than we would like to admit. It’s sweet, it’s healthy-ish, and it tastes legit. Bonus points that you get to eat it when you’re pregnant because, seriously, avoiding the raw-egged goodness of cookie dough for nine months is just too much to bear.

I made brownies a couple of weeks ago, and it was so hard not to lick the batter off the spoon. Is one little lick really gonna do anything? Probably not, but better safe than sorry, right? I knew if I could come up with a cookie dough that would satisfy, there must be a way to do brownie batter as well.

We’ve been so busy having summer fun around here! Casper started swimming lessons last week. After Lola’s rough go of it last year I wasn’t sure what to expect, but he’s rocking it!  Lola and Strummer enjoy playing in the sprinkler area while he has class and I even found the courage to stay for…

Look! I made food! And I actually took time out of my busy (napping) schedule to photograph and write about it. It’s a summer miracle. We have been loving summer so far.

Yeah, so, isn’t this supposed to be a food blog? I’ve been seriously slacking on the recipe posts these last few months, but I’m hoping to turn a corner on that soon. First there was morning sickness, now there’s exhaustion, and I just haven’t had the time or stomach to be trying new things food-wise….

Travel Like a Local: San Francisco

Travel Like a Local: San Francisco

To celebrate ten years of marriage, my husband and I decided to travel to San Francisco for a few days of best friend time and conversation that wouldn’t be interrupted by children. I love to travel, but Jeron, not so much. We’re both actually our most content when just sitting on the couch together, but…

Homemade Microwave Popcorn

Sooo, I’ve definitely eaten too many chocolate chunk blondies in the last 24 hours. There are plenty of things I could blame. My kids, for being so adorable and deserving a homemade treat while watching vintage cartoons. The other members of my church for not eating enough of them when I brought them to church…

The weather has been so summer-like lately! We’ve been enjoying bike rides, hikes, and eating on the deck. I have to admit I’ve also been enjoying just sending the kids out to play while I stay inside and catch up on housework or read a book. The kids sleep so incredibly well after a day…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Banana bread. Is there any greater love? The short answer is yes, of course there is. Buuuuut, banana bread has been getting me through these queasy days of early pregnancy. No-thing has sounded good except the carb-iest carbs. This chocolate chip banana bread (smothered in peanut butter, obviously) has been a real life saver at…
