Nutella-stuffed chocolate banana bread muffins

Banana bread gets a makeover! I give you Nutella-stuffed chocolate banana bread muffins. It’s my grandfather’s birthday today. Seems appropriate that I share a double chocolate recipe, because nothing screams birthday like chocolate and besides, my grandfather Martin has the…

Creamy oatmeal apple smoothie

Creamy oatmeal apple smoothie is like apple pie, but healthy and  in breakfast form. (Not that you can’t have actual pie for breakfast. I know I want it.) How are we already in the middle of October? I swear I…

Cherry beet smoothie

Oh boy, I’ve been a bad blogger. This little break I’ve had wasn’t planned AT ALL.

I have a full list of recipes I want to share and I just haven’t had the energy to do anything in the kitchen.

Clementines especially are a winter essential. They’re kind of like snow. I can’t picture a winter without it and […]
