caramel nut sticky buns.

YES.  The answer to your question is yes…I am a schizophrenic foodie.

Last week I was finishing up a fruit and veggie cleanse, talking about things like summery salads under 350 calories and these quinoa-stuffed bell peppers; then sprinkled between these days of utter discipline and health, I’ve managed to crank out loaded peanut butter ice cream with salted caramel and dark chocolate, berry lime crumb bars and these wickedly awesome sticky buns.

father’s day roundup.

The dads in my life totally rock.

My dad took me to breakfast every Saturday, even in my awkward years when I was a pain in the you-know-what and too cool for school.  Talking with me over breakfast might have been like talking to a slice of melon. Read more

mama’s day inspirations.

Mother’s Day has evolved over the years in our family. 

After a nearly disastrous first Mother’s Day where, 2 months post-partum and clearly still quite hormonal, I deviated from my normal “let’s not make a big deal out of this holiday” routine and opted instead for a tantrum that mirrored my now 2 year old…we have since moved on to a more peaceful (and less estrogen-filled) Mother’s Day tradition.

I’m considering starting a business where I bottle the scent of toasted coconut, almonds and chocolate and sell it so that homes across America can smell so outrageously delicious.  Would you buy it?

Maybe you would consider my offer more seriously after you make these scones and they fill your home with their heavenly aroma.

mini gorgonzola popovers.

It’s been pretty well established that we’re a football family.  But have we talked about the fact that, at the beginning of each season, my husband and I pick 3 teams to follow for the 4 glorious months of football?  First, we each pick our own team…one that we each are individually interested in and hope will end up playing each other for some inner-family competition.  The second is our shared team, the one we pick and cheer for together.  Some couples share a love of sophisticated things like golf or wine-tasting…we love football.  That’s just how we roll.

blackberry peach muffins.

I now accept requests.

That’s right…I received a request to put together a recipe for a nutritious berry and peach/apricot muffin, and it just so happened I had blackberries and peaches in my fridge this morning so here we go! Read more
