Ice cream. It’s my favorite dessert thing in the world. Well that and chocolate. But this ice cream has chocolate in it so I mean, it really can’t get any better than that. When I was younger I lived for the filling of Oreos. I’d eat the whole cookie but in a very specific way. […]
Remember the apples I bought and talked about forever in this post? Well I still have some of them hanging around and their time of crisp beauty is coming to an end. The warm temperatures around here are also departing leaving me with some apples on the verge of going bad and some thick socks that can’t combat the cold enough to help me regain feeling in my feet again.
Enough about all of that though. You’re not here to listen to me complain about the fact that I’ll be hibernating until April. Nope! You’re here for some cinnamon apple crisp and that is very exciting on it’s own!
I love making apple crisp because it’s so easy to make. You don’t need a lot of time, ingredients, baking talent, or effort to make it delicious. My kind of dessert. Let’s get to baking so that we can curl up with a fuzzy blanket, a good book, and a warm bowl of fresh baked apple crisp!
This banana bread is for everyone. Chocolate fans, vanilla lovers, and those who can’t decide between the two (hey, that’s me!) – we can all enjoy this one.
I make a lot of chocolate recipes on here and that probably won’t be changing anytime soon. Chocolate is my JAM. But ya know what, I love vanilla too. If I’m going for ice cream and I have to pick between chocolate and vanilla ice cream, I’m going for vanilla hands down. I have a piece of chocolate basically everyday though. I really would rather not have to decide between two good things. So when I was making this banana bread I realized that one less chocolate vs. vanilla decision was needed on that day and the Best of Both Worlds Banana Bread was born. YUM.
I heard somewhere, and I can’t remember where this came from, that life is all about seeing how much you can get away with. After hearing that I have been living by it. You think after hearing something that had a big impact on me that I’d remember where it came from, but NOPE. No idea.
Anyways, I’ve been living by that statement now and life has gotten so much more fun and exciting! I do things that I wouldn’t have done before, and not in a way that harms myself or others. Just in a fun, bold way. It’s made me not want to make so many decisions that I thought I had to make prior to this. Cake or ice cream; why not both? Bike ride or running; a little of each works. Vanilla or chocolate; equal amounts of both. We spend so much time thinking that we can only do things or have things be a certain way because that’s how they are. But that’s not the case a lot of the time. We can do things that don’t even cross our minds because they’re not in our routines or they’re not things that we often see being done by others. That doesn’t mean they’re wrong to do or that we can’t do them. In fact, that probably means that we should do them!
So today we’re doing that with some banana bread. Starting out small just to get us prepared for the bigger things. We gotta start somewhere and if that somewhere involved chocolate, vanilla, and bread then I think it’s a great place to start.
The first pumpkin recipe of the season and it’s a good one!
*runs to the kitchen to grab one of these so that I can accurately describe it*
A soft and flaky outside, sweet and gooey inside. Cinnamon, pumpkin, caramel; mmm.
When I first made these I was looking for something quick to make that had the rich texture and taste of a fresh baked pastry from *insert your favorite bakery here.*
Somehow I have achieved the dream and these homemade pumpkin caramel pockets were born.
I’m all about creating simple recipes because let’s be real, we don’t always have 3 hours to spend making a pan of cinnamon rolls. Although, I do wish that was the case…
But since it’s not, I don’t want any of us to have to sacrifice taste, enjoyment, or health because we have a lot happening in our days.
I don’t know where I’m going with this thought other than letting you know that it’s cool. I got ya. Most of my recipes are and will continue to be busy life friendly.
And with that being said, let’s make some fall food!
I have been so hungry lately. You think that you want to be hungry all the time because then you get to eat more and who doesn’t want to do that, right?! Wrong. Being hungry all the time is tough. I’m think it’s because I’ve been amping up my activity levels lately and my metabolism knows it but I haven’t been prepared for it.
I’ve solved that problem though with these chocolate coconut cashew bars. Made of simple, wholesome ingredients. No added sugars, which is important to me right now. These bars are packed full of healthy fats and proteins to keep you moving and grooving at your full potential. I’ve been keeping a container of them in the fridge and grabbing one whenever I head out the door because you never know where you’ll be when hunger strikes!
It’s no secret that chocolate is my jam. It’s been a while since I’ve made my own and I figured that it’s about time to change that.
More healthy fats popping up in my diet lately. A very good thing, I believe. I want to do a whole post on digestion soon, when I can type again. My finger got into a fight with a knife the other day and the knife won. Let’s just all take a moment to be grateful that the tip of my finger is still attached because it sure was a close one. Anyways, digestion post. Stay tuned for that; but to sum it up really quick lets just say that I’ve been making some changes and I have more that I want to make to try and get my body working properly. Ah, life.
On to the important topic of the day; almond butter cups. All natural ingredients that are good for your body and soul. Mmm. Simple to make. You can have a batch made in 30 minutes, no problem. Probably best for those of us living in cooler climates if you want to take them places. But still a great snack to grab out of the fridge for the lucky ones living in warm places too. And on that note; let’s get to it.
I go through so much granola each week that it’s probably concerning from an outside perspective. But here’s the deal; I freaking love it. So much. I’ve gotten into the habit of eating it while I’m making breakfast in the morning and grabbing it as a snack in the afternoons when hunger strikes and I […]
I am loving beets lately. The color just makes me SO HAPPY. Seriously, how can you look at a beet and not just be so happy to have obtained such a beautiful gift from the earth. Plants are so cool. Something else that is so cool is that I am loving life lately. Things are […]
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about workouts and fitness in general. I love working out so much. It just makes you feel SO GOOD. How could you not like it?! With that being said, I tend to step back a bit from working out as intensely in the winter. Mainly because I prefer to […]
I was going to say that I’m not really into Valentine’s Day. But it’s a day where chocolate and candies are expected to happen so I think that I’m pretty into Valentine’s Day after all. I’ve also been thinking about the holiday and how to celebrate it other than by making some treats. I know […]
