Secretly Healthy Fudge Balls

Share

My friend Kathleen sent me a link to this recipe last weekend. She was trying to replicate fudge balls that she had eaten at a dinner party. She asked me what I thought of the recipe, and I took one look and told her that she shouldn’t waste her time; the resulting fudge balls would […]

Nutella Biscuits

The other morning, one of my sons asked me what I was planning to make for breakfast. I almost always offer them something homemade. Since it was a weekend morning and we didn’t have to worry about getting to school, I asked if he wanted to help me make something. It’s unusual that one of […]

Coconut Chocolate Chip Magic Granola Bars

Share

I’m always on the lookout for healthy snacks for the boys to eat. As snack foods go, these bars aren’t terrible. They’re still a sweet snack, but they’re preservative free, unlike many of the granola bars that you buy at the supermarket. Three out of the four boys liked these. My husband and I liked […]

Mini Churros

Yesterday was the first day of spring, and it snowed almost all day! We have had quite a winter here in NYC. I thought for sure our snowstorms were over for the year, but Mother Nature had other ideas. We probably got a good 4″ when all was said and done. The city looked beautiful […]

Chocolate Ricotta Muffins

I know I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve officially become more of an occasional food blogger. With four boys in middle school, my time is devoted to them – bringing them here and there, helping with homework, encouraging them to do their homework rather than fool around, etc. I’m still doing a lot of […]

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Energy Bars

These little snacks are healthy, simple to make (there’s no baking involved) and surprisingly delicious. I’ve had the recipe kicking around in my “to-make” list for a while now and I finally decided to try it. I’m still amazed that they only use four ingredients. As I’ve often found, sometimes the simplest recipes are the […]

Rosemary Butter Cookies

Share

These rosemary butter cookies are delicious. They are delicate, buttery and the rosemary flavor is definitely there, but it’s subtle. They’re not too sweet, but just sweet enough. The cookies crumble in your mouth like a good, buttery shortbread. I tried these cookies for the first time this summer at a neighbor’s house and I […]

Avocado Toast

Share

This is my new favorite breakfast! There’s not much to putting it together, but the combination of olive oil, hearty whole grain bread, half an avocado, salt and pepper makes an incredible treat. The first time I made it, I had lemon olive oil on hand, which made an amazing avocado toast. Regular olive oil […]

Spinach Brownies

Share

My cousin Erica posted a picture of these spinach brownies on Facebook last week and I thought they looked delicious. I love having something in the refrigerator that’s quick and healthy for lunch and these are just the ticket. They’re good both warm or cold, straight from the fridge.   The boys wouldn’t go near these […]

Sparkling Cranberries

Share

This is my favorite new holiday recipe! I think these cranberries are incredible. They’re both sweet and tart. They have a nice crunchy sugar coating and once you break through it you get surprised with a splash of very tart cranberry juice.  I served them on Christmas Eve.  I made them to sprinkle around my […]
