Reconsidering Syrup: Blueberry Pecan Maple Breakfast Cookies

Here we are, on the second Sunday of March Maple Madness. Here I am, already wishing it was going to last longer. Why? Because this week’s recipe has me seeing maple in a whole new light. When most of us think of maple, we think of pancakes. Fluffy, stacked as high as your head, indulgent …

Let the Madness Begin: Maple Spice Cookies

It’s a special time of year friends! No, not because it’s my birthday this week. No, not because Spring Oreos are out in stores…finally.

Better Late Than Never: Peanut Butter Nutella Baklava

On and Off Again: Turkey Lasagna Rolls

Throughout the years, pasta and I have had an on and off relationship. Growing up, we ate it simply: with sauce, and maybe a meatball or two, if Mom was feeling fancy. By adolescence, jarred sauce and elbow macaroni had gotten to be a bit old. In college, I went back in on the pasta …

Small Victories: Getting Toasty, Five Ways

Flash back 15 months ago. I was done. Done, with what I thought the weight loss journey of a lifetime. Over a year and a half; losing weight, getting thinner. At the end of this span of time, I looked back and thought, “Hot damn, 60 pounds down.” My entire journey, summarized and defined by …

Window Shopping Memories: Italian Rainbow Cookie Cake

Throughout my journey, there were so many reasons why I found myself just gazing through the windows …
