• Dark Chocolate Breakfast Pudding

    Okay… so this isn’t really pudding. It’s an overnight oats recipe, but my kids call it “breakfast pudding” so that’s what I’m going with. Such an easy recipe. Make a batch in individual jars at the start of the week and you are good to go for a few days! The key is the Special Dark Cocoa Powder (who else loved that miniature Hershey’s bar when they were a kid?) – it makes it that much more decadent. You can certainly use regular cocoa powder if you don’t want to add another to your pantry but we love it! Dark Chocolate Breakfast Pudding (Makes 2 servings and can be multiplied easily)…

  • Chocolate Zucchini Breakfast Cookies

    First, thank you all for your kind messages after my post on Monday, I Need To Walk and It’s Getting Cold… I really appreciate the love, support and suggestions! The other day I told a friend I feel so fortunate to be surrounded by such wonderful, giving people. It keeps me afloat. Oh, and I will report back on podcasts soon! Now on to the cookies.

Yes, please? I thought so. Inspired by the amazing…

  • Make Ahead Breakfasts

    Okay… summer is now over (unofficially). That Tuesday after Labor Day always seems to be the day despite what the lunar calendar says. The melee sets in; back to school, back to work, back to life. It can be hard to get out the door in the morning (or sit to write a blog post!), am I right? I pulled together my favorite recipes that you can make a head and get you and/or your kids out the door even faster without the headache! Muffins: So easy to make ahead and keep on the counter or better yet, in the freezer! Make a double batch while you are baking! All of…

  • Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

    Muffins. I grew up eating muffins every weekend. My dad would make the best muffins (out of a box, my favorite were the Duncan Hines Deluxe Blueberry Muffin… which they still make a version of, but sadly I can no longer eat! ).  We would enjoy them with eggs and bacon; it was the highlight of the weekend. So, it comes as no surprise that my kids love muffins too. I find that they are great weekday breakfast paired with fruit and yogurt if you make them with simple healthful ingredients. We can save the super fun treats for the weekends like my parents did. These also freeze well so you can…
