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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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” […]

Homemade Brown Sugar Cinnamon Toaster Pastries #RecipeMakeover

It’s #RecipeMakeover week… which means we’re all┬árethinking 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 […]

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 […]

Orange Chocolate Chip Bread

Earlier this week, I picked up some delicious pink cara cara naval oranges at the supermarket on a whim. I usually get those mini mandarin oranges, but I’m so glad I picked something different this time around. They are delicious! If I cut one open in the kitchen, my whole house smells like citrus. Mmm. […]

Raspberry Almond Coffee Cake with Chocolate Drizzle

Do you want to make a coffee cake that is moist and delicious and easy to make? Stupid question. Of course you do! I love coffee cake because it can be breakfast, dessert, or a mid-day snack. I had some fresh raspberries in the refrigerator and needed something to do with them, so I decided […]

Cinnamon Pumpkin Pancakes

The other day I made some pumpkin bread and I had some extra pumpkin puree left. Our family loves pumpkin bread, but I wanted to use the extra pumpkin to try something new. What to make with it? I only had a 1/2 cup left. Don’t you just hate that, when you only have a […]

Crab and Bacon Eggs Benedict

Eggs benedict is one of my favorite meals of all time. I know this is traditionally a brunch dish, but could eat it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I remember the first time I had eggs benedict. I was being set up on a blind date, and he invited me to brunch one Sunday morning […]

Cream Cheese Peach Danish

Puff pastry is a great product. It is so quick and easy to use. Just thaw and it is ready to use in your recipe. Two sheets come in a standard package. I had a sheet in the freezer that needs to be used. I searched Pinterest and found a yummy-looking danish recipe on Lovely […]

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Banana muffins usually aren’t my thing. In fact, I really prefer banana flavor in three forms: Actual bananas Smoothies (like this one) Those little banana runt candies Seriously, who doesn’t like banana runts? Last year, I made some double chocolate banana scones that were pretty darn good, but most of the time, I leave the […]

Orange Chocolate Chip Scones with Vanilla-Orange Glaze

So here’s the thing… I already have a favorite scone recipe. I’ve been open to other types of scones, and have even made these double chocolate banana scones in the past. They were delicious. But nothing can hold a candle to the scone recipe I got from my friend’s grandmother. These come close. I’ll be […]

Double Chocolate Banana Scones

I love a warm scone and tall glass of iced coffee in the morning. And trust me, I don’t love much in the morning. Until about an hour after I wake up, I speak more in growls and grunts than actual sentences, unlike my boyfriend and mother who both have the annoying gene that causes […]
