Whole Wheat Flaxseed Pancakes with Fresh Strawberry Syrup

Whole Wheat Pancakes with Strawberry Syrup

When January rolls around, I am like every other human on this planet. I crave healthy food, have a few pounds to lose, and am over the cold. I begin to crave the sunshine and fresh berries more than anything else. Thankfully, living in Southern California, the sunshine and strawberry season are right around the […]

Apple Smoothie Bowls

  As we get further and further into the holiday season, I find myself getting more and more tired and sluggish. I’m not sure if it is the fact that I am running myself ragged with prep and kid’s activities or the fact that my diet is comparable to Elf (spaghetti with maple sugar)- sugar […]

Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal

Back to school time is extremely chaotic in my home, especially this year with 3 kids going to different schools in different counties. Needless to say, I need to be prepared for the morning the night before. Because we have to leave so early in order to get everyone to school on time, it is […]

Blueberry Scones

Our favorite time of year is finally here! My kids and I absolutely love to visit U-Pick farms around Southern California and create new and delicious items with everything that we have picked. While this may be a bit more expensive than purchasing the produce on sale at the local stores, the experiences that are […]

thick ny style buttery coffee cake

Buttery Coffee Cake

Sunday mornings are reserved for big family breakfasts. Normally, my husband is in charge of making the spread, but since he has been working so hard I have been subbing in and letting him sleep. Aren’t I sweet?! Yah, no I am not. I must admit that my taking over breakfast duty is purely selfish, […]

Perfect Hollandaise Sauce

Perfect Hollandaise Sauce

      On a recent press trip, I had a conversation about Hollandaise sauce with one of the other attendees. She mentioned that after seeing some kitchen nightmare type show, she will never order Hollandaise sauce again. Apparently, in some restaurants the sauce is made in the early morning and left out for the […]

Vanilla Almond Granola Silk Dairy-Free Parfaits

This week we have been talking about resolutions, and since I have quite a few it may take me a few posts to get through them! At the top of my list, I resolve to eat breakfast. You see, I am the type of person that will drink coffee until noon. Only when I begin […]

Frozen Croissant Breakfast Sandwiches

This year will be the first year that I have 2 children in school. If that is not stressful enough, they will be at two different schools, starting and ending at two different times. In an effort to make the first few weeks go smoothly, I took a morning to prepare easy hearty breakfasts that […]

Happy Mother’s Day to all you leading ladies out there. I hope that you are pleasantly enjoying a hot cup of coffee (normally by the time I actually get to my first sip it is cold…but not today) in bed, quietly reading your favorite blogs, all while your husband and children are working hard in […]

Pumpkin Spice Granola

After countless malasadas from the famous Leonard’s Bakery in Hawaii, (photo source here because my brilliant husband erased mine!) and ridiculously sweet, but delicious doughnuts from Voodoo Donuts in Portland, result in my utter need to go on a diet. All of this combined with this weekend in Sin City where I can guarantee that […]

Bite Size Apple Fritters

Bite Size Apple Fritters

I got a bloglift! How do you like it? The other day I was browsing Pinterest, when I came across these mini apple fritters. These have always been my favorite. Every time we go to the donut store I beg the owners to let me be an apprentice for a day. I am denied every […]

Mother’s Day Lemon-Bluberry Ricotta Muffins

Mother’s Day is fast approaching. Hopefully everyone has their reservations made or their menu planned. This is one of the most important days in my book, as nothing can compare to a mother’s work…at least this is what I tell my husband and children. It is the one day per year where my husband actually […]

Purple Carrot- Carrot Cake

As some of you may be able to tell, I love color. My kitchen is bright red, my living room is aqua, and my children’s bedroom is yellow. However, these colors are constantly changing. It is funny though, because I only seem to own black clothes. I get absolutely giddy when I eat something colorful, […]
