Chocolate Crumb Doughnuts

Happy Saturday, guys! I don’t usually post on the weekends.  I had planned on posting last night but someone got sidetracked shopping at The Home Goods store for Christmas decorations.  😉  Boy, the store was a mob scene, but I’m glad that I went because I wanted to see what they had before it got picked over.  It’s the kind of store that’s a hit or a miss but I’m happy to say that the crowds and long line was worth it because I did get a few things.  I’ll be sharing some sneak peaks on instagram and twitter before …

Chickpea and Broccoli Rice

My social media feeds are full of Thanksgiving food pictures and I’m loving that. I don’t think I can get tired of seeing pictures of all the pies.  Mmm pies.  Plus, I think it’s kind of fun to see what people make for their families, whether it be a rendition of a classic dish or something non-traditional, like tacos. Obviously today’s post has nothing to do with Thanksgiving foods.  If you’re like me then I figure you might like an idea of what to eat on the other 364 days of the year.  😉 This meal is a good example …

Friday Fitness

It’s been a while since I chatted about my fitness routine and it’s such a big part of my life that I thought I’d share with you what I’ve been up to.

Mmm Pies

How in the world is Thanksgiving already only two weeks away?  Crazy talk.  We all know that means it’s pie season.  I’ve made a variety of pies over the years and I thought it was high time to showcase them all right here in one nifty spot.  There are a couple items in the list that are barely pies, but they are still delicious. Apple Pie.  This is the only apple pie recipe you’ll ever need because it’s that good.  It’s a family recipe and I make it almost every Fall. Pumpkin Pie.  This pie is THE dessert for Thanksgiving.  …

Whole Wheat Mini Pumpkin Muffins

The age old question this time of the year, are you a pumpkin or apple food person? Pumpkin pie, apple cake, pumpkin cookies, apple pie… there are so many delicious goodies and so little time.  I love them all.  I will say that I’ve never found an apple muffin that rocked my world, but I do love pumpkin muffins.  I’ve made a variety of pumpkin muffins over the years but this is the first time I’ve made whole wheat pumpkin muffins.  I’ve never made whole wheat muffins of any flavor actually, so I thought I’d try something different. Whole wheat …
