No-Bake Carrot Cake Energy Bites

Share

I’m always on the hunt for healthy snacks for myself and for the boys. I’ve been making a variety of different no-bake energy bites recently, with various healthy ingredients, but these are one of my favorites. My husband describes them as being virtuous, which means he doesn’t really like them, but he’ll eat them […]

Blueberry Streusel Bars with Lemon-Cream Filling

Share

These bars are both out-of-this-world, and award-winning! My son recently entered a baking competition at his high school during Spirit Week, and these bars took first place. They are loaded with flavor and not overly sweet, a nice combination of blueberry and lemon. Blueberry and lemon is one of my favorite fruit combinations. If […]

No Bake Healthy Breakfast Cookies

Share

I am still on a quest to find healthy things for the boys to eat. They are all in high school now, three sophomores and a freshman, and although their eating habits have gotten infinitesimally better, and I mean infinitesimally, they are still not great. Until they are off to college, I will continue to […]

Dark Chocolate Chia Granola

Share

I do like a good granola mixed into my yogurt in the morning or as an afternoon snack, and this granola is perfect for that. It gives the yogurt a nice crunch. My boys will eat this granola by the handful. At least one of them will mix it into yogurt too.

The granola doesn’t form […]

Eleven Madison Park Granola

Share

There’s a wonderful restaurant nestled on the edge of Madison Square Park in Manhattan where I’m told you get to take home some delicious granola at the end of your meal. The restaurant is called Eleven Madison Park. I have eaten there several times for business, but the meals were years ago, when Danny Meyer […]

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 […]

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Share

I have been making these cookies for a while now and they’re delicious. I found the recipe on the back of a bag of King Arthur flour. I love the addition of oats to a good chocolate chip cookie.

If you cook these according to the instructions, leaving the centers of the cookies looking a little […]

Chock-Full-of-Chips Drops

These cookies are delicious. They’re stuffed with oatmeal, chocolate chips, white chips and M&Ms. They’re a like a loaded oatmeal cookie with an excellent chip to cookie ratio. The boys loved them. One cookie after a meal will satisfy any sweet-tooth.

Granola

Share

Ok, I’m on a granola kick these days. A typical breakfast for me is some greek yogurt with some granola mixed in. I got sick of paying high prices for small boxes of granola. A small package of granola at my local supermarket costs $6.99. Isn’t that crazy? That’s why I decided to try to […]

Cinnamon Vanilla Granola

Share

My sister Gail posted a link on Facebook a couple of days ago that talked about things that you should never buy again because you should be making them at home. Granola was one of them. I’ve been wanting to try to make granola for a while now, but I didn’t get around to trying […]
