Banana Crumb Cake

I’m on a mission to make every flavor of crumb cake possible. If you search “crumb cake” on my blog then you’ll see that I’ve made a few.  I can’t help it.  I just love crumb cakes. This crumb cake combines two of my favorite recipes, the cake part from the banana cake recipe and the crumb topping from the coffee crumb cake recipe.  The end result is a moist banana cake topped with buttery crumb topping.  Be still my heart.  This combo is as wonderful as I had imagined it to be.  I love it when that happens (because it’s not always …

Craving Spring

Dear Spring, I’m officially ready for you now that I’ve received these Jeffrey Campbell wedges.  As soon as I received these pretty things last week I’ve been anxious to paint my toenails and sport some Spring fashion. I will miss my over sized and chunky sweaters and scarves but check out what I’m craving for Spring. Wedges.  I see that wedges are on trend for this spring and summer, which is great because I love the look.  (It doesn’t hurt that they help to add a little height.  #shortgirlproblems).  I bought these Marc Fischer wedges last summer and can’t wait to …

Crispy Baked Chicken Fingers Salad

My chicken strike might be over. I haven’t cooked chicken in months (as you may or may have not noticed).  I like chicken but I’m really picky about the texture and taste.  If I get a gristly bit (you know, a little cartilage or fat) or it tastes too chicken-y, then I’m done and won’t want to eat chicken for an extended period of time. Yes, I said “too chicken-y.”  I blame my dad for getting that idea into my head.  He used to say that all the time when I was a kid (and still does) and now as an adult I …

Chocolate Cupcakes for Two

Today my blog is four years old.  Wow… just wow. Every birthday deserves a cake.  I didn’t want to make an entire cake for just me and my husband so I went with cupcakes instead.  The best part is that it’s a recipe for only two cupcakes which is totally perfect for a party of 2! Guys, I’m going all out for this occasion and sharing my first cupcake recipe with you.  How have I not made cupcakes before?!  Oh right, I hate frosting cupcakes simply because I’m horrible at it. Baking the cupcakes is easy peezy.  It’s just like …

Pizza Fingers

I took English muffins and turned them into little pizzas because… well, why not? I love pizza.  Let me count the ways I can eat thee… take out, homemade (aka traditional style crust), homemade with whole wheat crust, naan style, and skillet style (which is the most famous of them all on my blog… by far).  You can really get creative with turning foods into pizzas (or things that resemble pizza ingredients).  Sometimes it’s out of necessity because you’re a college student and all you have is sliced bread, sauce, and string cheese.  Sometimes it’s about the fun to see what you …
