Crunchy Granola Cups with Yogurt and Fruit

Did you know you can make granola in an air fryer? Weird… but totally yummy! It might seem strange that I’m sharing this recipe today, given that it is Thanksgiving, but it is a quick and easy breakfast or snack you can make today without spending lots of extra time in the kitchen. Don’t skip […]

Chocolate Pumpkin Bread #Choctoberfest

My mom’s pumpkin bread recipe is the best in the world. The best, no competition. For #Choctoberfest, I wanted to make a chocolate version, filled with delicious cocoa. This year, Rodelle sent me some cocoa powder to taste-test, and although I am under no obligation to use it in a recipe post here on my […]

I love a piping hot mug of hot chocolate when the weather gets cool… and a frozen hot chocolate in the summer! With so many hot chocolate recipes out there, it is impossible to get bored. #Choctoberfest is the perfect opportunity for a yummy hot chocolate recipe roundup! If you haven’t yet, click here to […]

Berry Pomegranate Tea Smoothie Bowls

On weeks when I am testing out new recipes, my kitchen is usually a disaster zone by mid-day. I love a quick and easy treat that I can whip up in my blender for a late breakfast, lunch, or a mid-afternoon snack. Smoothie bowls are also so pretty, am I right? Some food bloggers go […]

Chocolate Bacon Pancakes

I originally published this recipe on Instagram as part of a sponsored campaign I did for Smithfield Bacon… but y’all, these pancakes are so good that I just had to share ’em on the blog too! Full disclosure: I was sent free bacon and paid for the Instagram campaign… but I was not compensated to […]

Raspberry Beet Mint Protein Smoothie

I love a dash of mint in my smoothies. It really brightens the flavor and matches well with just about every smoothie flavor. So, when I saw this recipe, I knew I’d love it before I even tried it… and I wasn’t disappointed. I received a review copy of 175 Best Superfood Blender Recipes Using […]

Crunchy Honey Cinnamon Chickpeas #FantasticalFoodFight

Fellow bloggers, do not forget to sign up for #Choctoberfest 2017. Sign ups close on Oct 1. If you want me to run the other direction, feed me healthy snack food. Seriously, pretty much every “healthy” quick grab-and-go snack I’ve tasted might as well be cardboard. When I need a pick-me-up during the day and […]

Fiesta Eggs Benedict

Okay, here’s something that is a little embarrassing to admit… I am not a super adventurous eater. I try to make myself try out new foods, because I am often very happy I did so, but my natural inclination is to eat what I already know I like. I know, I know… I’m a food […]

Grilled Peach, Berry, and Citrus Sangria #CookoutWeek

This post is sponsored by The French Farm. All opinions are my own. It’s #CookoutWeek right now, and I knew that this year I wanted to feature a refreshing adult beverage: Sangria! There is no wrong time of the year to drink sangria. In the fall, I want light red wine with lots of apples. […]

Strawberry and Fig Jam Crescents

After my recipe for Cardamom Date Scones was such a smashing success in this house, I’ve been itching to use cardamom in more recipes. I’m on a cardamom kick! Which is not as crazy as some of the other kicks I’ve been on. It’s about a 7 out of 10 on the “Allison’s Ingredient Kicks” […]

How to Make Drinking Vinegar + My Blueberry Shrub Recipe

I think vinegar is one of those ingredients that you either love or hate, like cilantro (yuck) or avocado (yum). I happen to love vinegar and the acidic bite it brings to recipes. But it wasn’t until last year that I ever heard of “drinking vinegar.” I’ve heard of drinking a little apple cider vinegar […]

DIY Unicorn Frappuccino with No Added Sugar #RecipeMakeover

The Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino might just be a passing trend, but when I saw the amount of sugar in the drink, I knew I had to do a DIY version for #RecipeMakeover! This week on the blog, we are making over some of your favorite recipes to be just a little better for you – […]

Homemade Brown Sugar Cinnamon Toaster Pastries #RecipeMakeover

It’s #RecipeMakeover week… which means we’re all rethinking recipes into lighter, healthier versions. I have to admit, I would not call my usual diet healthy. I’m a super picky eater and love sweet treats. So when thinking about what food to recreate in a bit healthier way, I went right to the things I eat all […]

How to Get Ready for Guests in a Dash (Plus Our Easy Cheese Dip Recipe!)

For the last few years, my fiance and I have been Airbnb hosts. Not only does this help us supplement our income, but we also get to meet people from around the world. We’ve had guests from as far away as Australia! (Learn how to become a host here.) Getting ready for Airbnb guests is […]

Cardamom Date Scones

I think I have a scone problem. I just can’t resist them! I’ve never met a scone I didn’t like. My favorite buttermilk scones are perfect with bits of fruit and chocolate in them, and they are extremely moist. But sometimes, you want a crumbier, dryer scone that is perfect for dunking in tea or […]

Grandma’s Homemade Honey White Bread #FoodBloggerLove

My grandmother’s homemade bread is a staple at any family function. I cannot even remember a time I’ve visit her house (in my childhood or recently) where she didn’t have at least a loaf on hand. This is one of our “secret” family recipes, so I wanted to wait for a special occasion to share it. Today […]
