Above The Fruited Plain

January 13, 2013

Pumpkin makes everything softer and fluffier and doubles the volume! I added a heaping 1/3 cup pumpkin to this batch of Kodiak cakes and instead of one moderate-sized pancake it made one giant one and two babies. Totally delicious and super filling. Topped with almond butter and coconut butter with bananas and walnuts cooked inside. […]

Here’s a big green ball to cheer you up for the weekend! I had to replicate last week’s Hot Apple Bread Yogurt dish. A Greek yogurt base, plus microwaved apple (one day I should sauté it for ultimate flavor), pieces of apple bread, cinnamon, chia seeds and old fashioned peanut butter. A great trio of […]

Craving Creating

January 11, 2013

Pregnancy wiped me of my love for all things culinary (except cheese…ice cream…lemonade…and all those other one-ingredient cravings). I had little desire to be in the kitchen for those 9+ months.

Three Strange Meals

January 8, 2013

I was on a roll today with interesting combinations – some on purpose and some not! I couldn’t decide what I wanted for breakfast, so I mixed a few things together: Greek yogurt base with Apple Scrapple bread and hot microwaved cinnamon apple on top. The combo of bread and hot apple on the cool […]

Downton Downtown

January 7, 2013

Have I said before how much I love Sundays? Matt is (almost) always home, and we generally don’t have plans so we hang around the house. I’m usually able to get some of the work done that I can’t get to during the week, so that leaves me feeling refreshed and accomplished for the days […]
