Banana Walnut Muffins

These muffins are maravillosa, to say the least. They’ve got a delicate crunch to them, are 100% bakery-worthy and can be whipped up in no time! These can easily be munched on as part of your breakfast, or packed in your lunchbox (do people still use lunchboxes?) for a banana-y snack. Let’s get our Betty Crocker/Martha Stewart//Niki…

Holiday Cranberry-Cashew Bliss Bars

These bars are the perfect way to use up those cranberries you bought but don’t know what to do with. Let’s be honest, it can get tricky finding uses for these tart little berries. This is why I’m plopping a cran recipe on the blog today, and combining it with orange for a magical result….

Raw Raspberry Cake

Raspberries. These bright pink and tangy fruits bring me back to my childhood summers. Back when I was a mini-me, we had raspberry bushes in the fields near our house. With my heart filled with courage, I would fearlessly fetch these fruits, though the thorns of the bush’s stalks left me prickled and scratched. I…

Melt-In-Your-Mouth Carrot Cake

Meh, what’s up doc? Let’s face it, many store-bought desserts and pastries will use the poor old carrot as a gimmick. The word “carrot” makes said item look healthy, when in reality these store-bought muffins scream “Hey, look at me, I contain minimal actual carrot and can contain up to 680 calories and 40 grams…

However, the thousands of possible combinations with these notes make it such that new tunes are produced daily and they have…

Home-Made Almond Butter Lovers Unite

I eat nut butters on the regular: on my toast, in my oatmeal, on bananas,  on pancakes, on waffles in sandwiches, heck, I put nut butters on everything, just the way lots of people drench their food in ketchup/add ketchup to their ketchup. Basically, I’m a nut-butter-eating-fiend. Major advantage: it tastes unbelievably good. Slight disadvantage: it costs “a lot…

Shortcut Muffins – Right This Way

A few days ago, I watched a video conference given by a woman working  as a marketer in the food advertising sector. She spoke about various interesting things, such as the fact that customers always trust what’s on the label. For example, if the label says “farm fresh”, the customer is reassured and imagines that the…

Banana “Garbanzo” Walnut Bread

Yes, that’s right, I’ve given my bread a middle name. Garbanzo has a nice ring to it, no? Plus I’m quite sure there’s a celebrity child out there whose actual name is Garbanzo. Point being: ladies and gents, this “bananer” bread is ridiculously delicious. This sure ain’t  your standard banana bread, laden with sugar, eggs…
