Some Silliness (and a giveaway!)

Albion-Giveaway2

You may be wondering why I have a dessert on my yoga mat.  What does yoga have to do with a food blog? Here’s the thing:  this blog is fueled by yoga.  I have a full-time job, I’m a wife (read: laundry-doer, house cleaner, lunch packer, short-order cook), and I run this blog along with [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Chocolate Raspberry Pizza

Double-Chocolate-Pizza-4

I can’t think of a better way to showcase fresh summer raspberries than with layers of chocolate. I mean, of course, after you eat your share of fresh berries right out of the bowl. (And by ‘bowl’ I mean right out of the carton on the way home from the farmer’s market). Is it just me, [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Sangria Sorbet

Sangria-Sorbet

Meet your new go-to summer dessert. This cold little cup of heaven is already my favorite thing about summer. Although, when winter rolls around, I will add warm mulling spices and keep eating this.  Icy, boozy desserts suit me well, no matter the time of year.  I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you how [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Dinner For Two: Green Curry in a Hurry

Green-Curry-in-a-Hurry-1

This green curry in a hurry is a page straight out of my weeknight dinner book.  I’m always looking for healthy, quick dinners.  In order to get dinner on the table fast, we don’t have to rely on pre-made or packaged food!  I promise! My favorite thing about this meal is the emerald green sauce. [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Peanut Butter Mousse and Jelly Parfait

Peanut-Butter-Mousse-Jelly-Parfaits-3

Let me break this down for you:  peanut butter melt-away cookies smeared with jam, and layered between peanut butter mousse.  Oh, and whipped cream and crushed peanuts, all packed up in a portable jar for the perfect picnic.  Not that you have to go on a picnic to enjoy these—we ate these on the couch.  [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Soft Pretzel Bread Pudding with Chocolate

Pretzel-Roll-Bread-Pudding-4

I made these especially for you because I know about your salty-sweet addiction.  I know you can never decide between the salty pretzel and the sweet pretzel with chocolate drizzle at the mall, and so you buy both.  I’m just like you. This bread pudding is so good.  So so so good.  I’m not even a bread [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Dinner For Two: BLT with Avocado Mayo

Creamy-BLT-wrap-1

Our weekends have been hectic lately.  We just crossed the one-year mark of owning a house, and suddenly every sentence starts with “I can’t believe we’ve lived here for a year and we haven’t__________.”  Your answer choices are:  planted trees, landscaped the front yard, or established a lawn that has more grass than bare dirt.

Greek Yogurt Truffles

Yogurt-Truffles-4

I have long dreamt of yogurt truffles. Truffles are my favorite dessert to sneak when no one’s looking.  I slyly pop one on my tongue and it dissolves into bliss. My love affair with truffles was getting a bit obsessive. The heavy cream containers in the trash were judging me.  I knew there had to [ Click to continue Reading! ]

Rhubarb Moonshine Smash

Rhubarb-Moonshine-Smash-1

Is it okay if we drink a little moonshine and forget our troubles? Granted, my only ‘troubles’ are the weather went from snow to 90-degrees too quickly, and the fact that weekends only last 2 days.  But, troubles are troubles, and moonshine soothes all. Is there a pink drink that doesn’t brighten your day? A [ Click to continue Reading! ]
