Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie Bowl

Chocolate Raspberry Smoothie Bowl | Foodinary

Today we’re talking about smoothie bowl recipes. One of the best smoothie tips I’ve ever received is to always use frozen fruit instead of fresh because it eliminates the need for ice.  Therefore, the tiny freezer in my apartment is now 80% frozen fruit – 20% other stuff.  The problem that many people run into […]

Simple Homemade Granola

Simple Homemade Granola | Foodinary

This weekend’s recipe is my simple homemade granola.  I used to always buy granola from the grocery store, but as I continue to strive toward a kitchen free of artificial ingredients, creating a delicious recipe of my own was must. The recipe I’m sharing with you today is pretty much as simple as it gets.  […]

Carrot and Walnut Muffins

Carrot Walnut Muffins | Foodinary

This past weekend I saw a roadside farmer’s stand selling humungous bags of carrots.  There is no possible way I could have ever hoped to make enough baked goods, juice, and salads in time to use up all of those carrots before they went bad so I opted out.   However, I did feel inspired […]

The Best Homemade Pancakes

Cinnamon Sugar Pancakes

When I started to make pancakes this morning, I was halfway through mixing the batter when I discovered that I didn’t have any milk!  I have never made pancakes without milk before and haven’t heard of anyone else doing it either.  I was already too far into the mixture and craving pancakes to give up. […]

Kale and Melon Green Juice

Kale and Melon Green Juice

In this season of picnics and barbecues, it can be very easy to overeat.  Now don’t get me wrong, I adore eating ribs, burgers, brats, pasta salad, you name it – but sometimes it can leave you feeling a little stuffed.  After a weekend filled with this heavy but delicious fare I like to make […]

How to Make Perfect Bacon in the Oven

Oven Baked Bacon

I love bacon.  In fact, I love almost anything that comes from a pig!  Someday when I have room for a deep freezer, I would  love to buy half of a pig from a local farmer and have pork products at the ready!  For now though, I’ll just keep buying from Bob’s Butcher Block here […]

The Ultimate Brunch Cocktail

The Ultimate Brunch Cocktail

It isn’t too often that we get to enjoy cocktails for breakfast or brunch – besides a Bloody Mary or Mimosa on a special occasion, the brunch cocktail may be considered a bit “overkill”.  However, when a great recipe comes along, I can’t help but share it with all of you! This past spring, I […]

The Best Breakfast Hash

Breakfast Hash

For the last week I have been creating every kind of smoothie recipe imaginable for a freelance job.  From the familiar to the unusual, my body was officially detoxed after tasting and testing so many smoothies. Cucumber-Kale, Blackberry-Flax, Mango-Cilantro, the list went on and on!  Getting this job writing smoothie recipes was the best “diet” […]

Banana Pecan Muffins

Banana Pecan Muffin

I always buy bananas with the best of intentions – I have these grandiose plans of trying out multiple smoothie recipes and munching on peanut butter and banana sandwiches each morning.  Unfortunately, I often forget I have those bananas in my cupboard and before I know it they are developing those black spots all over […]

How To Make Perfect Hard Boiled Eggs

How to Hard Boil Eggs

With Easter right around the corner, many of us are digging out the egg-coloring kits and easter baskets all while thinking “I sure hope my hard boiled eggs will peel well this year!” I can’t even count the number of times I’ve gone to peel my beautiful Easter eggs only to have a shell that […]
