Lemon Chia Seed Protein Cookies!

Lemon Chia Seed Protein Cookies!

I have recently turned to Instagram for fitness motivation, workout ideas, and new healthy recipes. Low and behold, I came across this recipe, and since I had a few lemons in my fridge and a huge bag of chia seeds, I decided to give it a try. I ALWAYS keep chia seeds around. They are fantastic added to applesauce, in granola, and made into pudding! Like this Pumpkin Chia Pudding, and this Coconut Banana Chia Pudding. These cookies turned out AMAZING! (more…)

Confetti Cake Batter Cookies

DELICIOUS

DELICIOUS

I have a confession, that isn’t really that juicy, but I LOVE HALLOWEEN. Like, A LOT. I also love Halloween parties, and baking for my friends. There is really nothing better than your friends raving about your treats. It’s a wonderful feeling. In the spirit of the occasion, I prepared some AMAZING confetti cake batter cookies for my friend’s Halloween party. I found the recipe on Baked by Rachel. They are a bit crunchy on the outside, and soft and sweet on the inside. Perfection. Bake on, bitches! (more…)

VEGAN Tiramisu

Vegan Tiramisu

Vegan Tiramisu

I didn’t think it was possibly to create such an incredibly delicious dessert with no dairy products… My mini me twin is vegan so we decided to give this recipe from Veggy Wood a try. We only ate half the pan in the first sitting, sooo I guess it turned out okay. The recipe looks super long and intimidating, but don’t worry. It’s not difficult at all. Purchasing lady fingers cuts out a lot of the prep time.

Buttery Lemon Scones

Amazing Lemon Scones

Amazing Lemon Scones

I was really really craving carbs today. So, I went in search of a (quick) relatively healthy recipe. The quick requirement cut out lots of bread options… Okay, pretty much most traditional bread recipes. I decided upon this Lemon Scone recipe. I had all the ingredients (for once!) and it had very good reviews. They turned out so amazingly soft, flaky, and buttery. I nearly ate the entire batch straight after I took them out of the oven. Seriously. So. Good.

Black Bean Brownie Update

S'mores Black Bean Brownies

S’mores Black Bean Brownies

Last night one of my best friends and I were having a wine and movie girls night. We felt like making some dessert, and some brownies sounded just about perfect. We decided to make my Black Bean Brownie recipe from few posts back (or check out the recipe below). My original post I didn’t add anything special to the brownies, but last night, I found some slightly stale marshmallows in my pantry and there were no other options but to make s’mores brownies.

Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies

Reese's Peanut Butter Chips

I could eat these by the spoonful…

THESE COOKIES ARE THE SHIT. This recipe is just from the back of the bag of Reese’s peanut butter chips that you can buy at most grocery stores. It is hands down one of my favorite recipes. These are always a huge hit at parties and disappear from my office kitchen in a matter of minutes. So, you should probably make them. BAKE ON, BITCHES! (more…)

Dark Chocolate Black Bean Brownies

Today I had an incessant craving for chocolate, one that my morning Beverly International UMP chocolate protein shake couldn’t even kick. I soon remembered this amazing brownie recipe my sister recently sent me. Get this, made from black beans! It kind of sounds gross, but my sister had made them before and said they turned out amazing.  (more…)

Stupid Simple: Mini Peanut Butter Cheesecakes

Keto Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Keto Peanut Butter Cheesecake

I am thinking about renaming my blog “Everything you can possibly bake in a muffin pan,” because I’m starting to notice how much I use them… I recently found this super simple recipe for keto peanut butter cheesecake cupcakes on a tumblr blog called I Can Keto. There are only 5 ingredients (6 include the extra one I added), and they were incredibly quick to put together. (more…)

Stupid Simple: Pumpkin Muffins

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Muffins

In case you have not already caught on, I am obsessed with pumpkin everything. Not like everyone who joins the bandwagon in the fall, I love pumpkin all the time. I also enjoy baking from time to time. I was thrilled when I came across this recipe for pumpkin muffins that only has 2 USE THESE INGREDIENTS. I thought it was some sort of sick joke, are you shitting me, 2 ingredients? (more…)

Jesse, Let’s Cook!

I. LOVE. BREAKING. BAD. So, it deserves it’s own post. I watched the entire show, all the seasons, and I am thinking about starting again from the beginning to catch all the things I missed the first time around when I was binge watching it. On an aside, when doing a little bit more research for this post, I googled “cooking meth,” TAKE THAT NSA! But really, I should probably delete that from my browser history…
