Apple Cheddar Scones

October 1, 2012

Fall is has always been my favorite season and living in the Northeast has made me appreciate these months even more. We recently went to a pick-your-own farm and these apple-cheddar scones were the first thing I made with my handpicked apples. They are wonderful; so delicious that scone-hating D even loves them (the cheese […]


Blueberry Muffins

May 19, 2011

I’m pretty sure these are best blueberry muffins I’ve ever eaten. They’re not the healthy kind; they’re also kind of a pain in the ass to make…but they’re totally worth it. Seriously. This is an exceptional muffin, guys.


Simple Breakfast Bake

May 13, 2011

This is not sophisticated fare, but it sure is tasty and convenient. It’s a great breakfast or brunch dish for feeding a crowd and can be prepared in advance.  There are quite a few variations on this dish, but no matter which one you use, this has be the easiest casserole recipe ever.


Quiche Muffins

April 4, 2011

Happy Monday, everyone. I won’t be able to cook or write for a few days because in a few hours, I’m getting my eyes lasered. I’ve worn contacts since I was eleven years old and without them, I can barely make out the “E” on an eye chart. I finally decided to get Lasik after talking […]


Buttermilk Pancakes

March 30, 2011

A few weeks ago, I had the most incredible pancakes at Buttermilk Channel, a homey restaurant in Brooklyn that I’m quite fond of. They were sweet, buttery, extra fluffy and pretty much perfect so when I got home, I immediately searched for the recipe and found it! Thank you Google, The NY Post, Chef Ryan Angulo […]


Baked Oatmeal

March 24, 2011

Baked oatmeal is my new favorite breakfast thing. I wish I would have discovered it a few months ago because it seems like a cold-weather type of food (although it did snow here last night). After making it several times over the past few weeks, I’ve settled on this simple and highly customizable recipe from […]


Breakfast Quinoa

January 20, 2011

I only discovered quinoa a few years ago and it seems that a lot of people aren’t yet familiar this nutritious grain. The little seeds fluff up but remain slightly crunchy when cooked. The taste is often described as “nutty.” Quinoa is high in protein and contains many other essential nutrients. It also happens to […]


Cream Scones

January 11, 2011

Here’s the thing about cream scones: They’re made with cream. And butter. If you try to make them healthy, you may wind up with a tasty pastry, but it won’t be a light and flaky, crusty-on-the-outside/tender in the middle, just-sweet-enough scone. If you want to be healthy, just go ahead and make some muffins instead. […]


Banana Oat Bars

December 3, 2010

The creator of the recipe calls these guys “yummy oat bars,” but as you can see, I made them into bite sized muffin-thingys instead. They sort of taste like a chewy bowl of oatmeal in a portable package. Highly customizable, nutritious and convenient, they’re the perfect on-the-go breakfast or snack. I also happen to think […]


P(l)umpkin Pancakes

November 21, 2010

I will forever associate pumpkin pancakes with Christmas Day, 2009. We got stranded in Dallas because of the icy weather and ended up eating lunch at IHOP that day. I had the pumpkin pancakes. Even though I was bummed about eating at IHOP with D instead of eating my dad’s eggrolls at my parents’ house […]
