Heavenly Lemon and Black Raspberry Scones

Lemon and Black Raspberry Scones

Lemon and Black Raspberry Scones

This morning I adventured out into the country to a “pick-your-own” farm. This time of the year they had strawberries and black raspberries. If you have never gone to pick your own berries, I would highly recommend it! I got a good tan, and some healthy (pesticide free) amazing berries. I knew I needed to make something with them so I didn’t just sit and eat them all until I got sick. I decided that lemon raspberry scones sounded delicious. Here is the recipe I found, it turned out delicious. Definitely making this again. I can’t wait to go pick more berries next weekend. BAKE ON, BITCHES!

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.

Homemade English Muffins

English Muffins

In attempt to be more conscious of the processed foods I am putting in my body, I decided to try to make my own English muffins. I was a little bit intimidated, but for my first attempt I was quite pleased! I found a recipe from Alton Brown on the Food Network website, but I ended up preparing them a bit differently than the original recipe. See my notes at the bottom. BAKE UP, BITCHES!

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.

Pumpkin Protein Bread

So, I ran in a 5k this weekend, and I was looking for a recipe to make for breakfast with some protein and carbs to make sure I had lots of energy before I ran. I found this awesome recipe on bodybuilding.com for pumpkin protein bars. I decided to try it out, and was happily surprised. The bread turned out super moist and delicious. Definitely going to make this one again. A great plus, the recipe is (basically) fat free too. Amazing!

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…)

Chocolate Chip Oat Bran Muffins

I am on a mild health kick currently. I am trying to work out at least 5 days a week, eat healthy, and get enough sleep. Sounds so easy in theory, right? Shit, was I wrong. Said healthy kick was my initial motivation to try and make oat bran muffins. I was not totally sold at first that they were going to taste even halfway decent. However, I was pleasantly surprised! Check out the recipe below. I just used the one off my box of oat bran, because, I’m really creative and all. (more…)

Holy Delicious Banana Cream Pie Chia Pudding

Banana Cream Pie Chia Pudding

I totally have OCD and I am so bothered that the jars aren’t even. So sorry. I didn’t notice until after I cleaned up my kitchen. I can’t even look at it!

Today I had 3, very sad, nearly overripe bananas sitting in my kitchen fruit bowl. I decided to put them out of their brown mushy misery. So, I decided to make some chia pudding since my breakfast food stash was looking slim. I just threw together a few things, so this recipe turned out super simple, but delicious! Yes please. I WIN!
