Apple rhubarb (microwave) cobbler

Happy (almost) June! If you guys have been following me on twitter or facebook you’ll know I was out of town all last week visiting my parents for my birthday. Was such a great visit full of delicious food and family bonding time. Fun fact about my parents’ place: they live near a bunch of…

Strawberry yogurt french toast

So I woke up this morning and was struck by inspiration. I decided to take my french toast to the next level and make strawberry french toast for Edward.  We were running low on his usual go-to breakfast (cheerios) so I thought it would be nice to make him breakfast in bed. For some reason…

Sweet potato fruit dip

Last year I wouldn’t go near sweet potatoes. Now? Now, i have to have a bag of sweet potatoes at all times plus a couple baked up and ready to go so I always have a stash ready to add to baking/cooking. I love to use them in baking and cooking. They are so versatile…

Sweet potato baked oatmeal with raspberry filling

Berry filled Whole wheat cinnamon rolls with berry yogurt icing

I think these may be my new favorite breakfast. Homemade whole wheat cinnamon rolls with a strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, and blackberry filling and a berry yogurt icing. These are a great healthier, nutrient dense alternative to the high calorie, high sugar cinnamon rolls you find at the bakery. The best part? All of the ingredients…

Make ahead breakfast: oatmeal bake

I’m a huge fan of both baked oatmeal and make ahead breakfasts. Since starting this internship, I have had zero time in the mornings to sit down for a nice breakfast. Instead, I make breakfast ahead of time and eat it on the go. Really, making breakfast ahead isn’t new for me. Even when I…
