Pesto Hummus

Is anyone else trying to eat a little healthier this year? Homemade hummus is incredibly easy and uses such simple ingredients! It is also so versatile; I add it to salads, spread it on sandwiches and of course dip veggies in it for a healthy snack. You know what is better than regular hummus? PESTO… More

Banana Almond Butter Bites

Have you ever had the Gone Bananas from Trader Joes? They are basically frozen chocolate-covered banana slices. I like the flavor and they’re a relatively healthy dessert but I always feel like I was chewing on ice when I eat them. So I decided to iterate! The key is to slice the banana nice and… More

Brown Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes, this recipe title is quite long. But all of the descriptors are important! The brown butter makes this cookie taste nutty and almost toffee-like; the oatmeal give it a great chewy texture; and the chocolate chips are self explanatory. The longer name of this cookie is “Brown Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie with a… More

Pumpkin Coffee Cake

Remember my banana coffee cake? Well, I figured it was time to try a pumpkin coffee cake! This twist on the fall classic uses the same streusel topping, with the addition of pumpkin pie spice. I served this bread for dessert with olive oil ice cream and it was a perfect fall treat but would… More

Pumpkin Granola

I have been on a major granola kick lately. It is so easy to make, uses ingredients that are always stocked in my kitchen and makes my apartment smell AMAZING. Seriously, better than any fall candle I’ve found. My favorite way to eat granola is on top of apple slices with a smear of almond… More

Maple Butternut Squash with Goat Cheese

Now that it is fall, I constantly find myself leaving the grocery store with multiple types of squash. Usually some combination of butternut, spaghetti or delicata. Butternut squash can be intimidating because it does take some prep (peeling, cutting, removing seeds, etc.) but I was so happy with how this recipe came out that I… More

Everything Bagel Chicken

I LOVE Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning. I eat it with eggs, avocado toast and most recently, chicken! The flavors pair so perfectly and mixing it with the panko gives the chicken a wonderful crispy texture. I cooked these in the air fryer but have also made them in the oven and they… More

Fall Harvest Salad

My go-to order at Sweetgreen is their Harvest Bowl. The combination of kale, wild rice, apples, sweet potatoes, chicken, goat cheese and almonds is perfectly hearty and satisfying. I’ve attempted to recreate this bowl at home a few times and I think I have it figured out! I modified the ingredients a bit but the… More

Sweet and Spicy Brussels Sprouts

I love crispy roasted brussels sprouts but usually keep it simple with olive oil, salt and pepper. This is a great alternative when you want a more flavorful side dish! Just make sure to roast the brussels sprouts long enough that they get brown and crispy. I ate mine in a bowl with quinoa and… More

Banana Coffee Cake

Yes, this technically is the third iteration of banana bread that I am posting on here. First there was the hearty chocolate chip banana bread, then there was the zucchini banana bread and finally, here is the banana coffee cake! I always buy bananas and inevitably a few get too ripe to eat straight so,… More
