The truth is, I just love cookies. And even though I try to eat healthily, I still want to eat cookies. So I started making myself these easy peasy little chocolate cookie bites, and they satisfy my cravings while still offering nutrients! These babies are sweet and a hint of salty, chewy, chocolatey, and crisp.
At my house, we like to eat our Thanksgiving dinner in the middle of the afternoon rather than at night. But no matter how much I tell myself to save room for the big meal, my body still thinks it wants to eat at lunchtime. Obviously, the solution is appetizers! You cannot go wrong with these easy […]
A weird thing happens when you have a newborn. Suddenly, you find yourself revealing way more about parts of your body, your sleep habits, and bodily functions in general to your friends (and near strangers) than you ever would have otherwise. If you are breastfeeding, your entire life suddenly feels like it hinges on your […]
So you’re thinking of cutting back on refined sugar. Maybe this is a New Year’s resolution thing, a short-term reset-your-habits thing, or a long-term reclaim-your-health thing, but whatever your reasons, I applaud you! You can do this!

This year, Jake knew exactly what he wanted for his birthday. It was s’moresy. It had ice cream. It was a layer cake. I had never made an ice cream cake before, but it turns out that it isn’t hard! Also, it turns out that Jake is once again a dessert genius, because this birthday […]
My crazy little man is 4 years old! Jake definitely gave me a run for my money this year. He is rambunctious and giddy and willful and very invested in understanding every single thing. This year we celebrated Jake’s birthday in the most fitting way I could imagine: with a mountain of candy and a giant board game. […]
About a year ago, a good friend of ours left a bottle of spiced rum at our house, as a gift. To be honest, neither of us are big cocktail drinkers. And so, the bottle of rum has gathered dust in the cabinet. But then, as part of the Secret Recipe Club challenge for October, I […]
Now that it’s Fall, I am going to be all about the baking. And what do we think of when we think of Fall? (No…it’s not just pumpkin.) Leaves! Leaves turning orange and red and dripping from the trees and crunching underfoot. I think maple should feature as prominently in our Fall lineup as all the […]
