Healthy Seven Layer Bars

by Kelly M

Warning: do not lick the screen. When I was little (okay, shorter but bigger around the middle), my mother’s colleague would bring seven layer bars into the office.  My mother would then proceed to graciously hoard and bring them home, knowing that, to her 9 year old daughter, these bars were the edible equivalent of […]

Healthy Blueberry Muffins

by Kelly M

Or, how to eat brilliant art for breakfast. Oh my. The masterpiece that is the blueberry muffin. Once upon a time, some genius decided to match the natural beauty of the blueberry with the sweet, moist decadence of the muffin. That was a dozen steps forward for mankind. Many happy breakfasts have passed since then […]

Chocolate Avocado Cookies

by Kelly M

Let me explain. These wonderful beautiful cookie-shaped miracles are so rich it’s like swimming in Willy Wonka’s chocolate river. You can’t even taste the avocado at all. Pinkie swear. The real beauty here is the ability to eat as many foodgasmic cookies as you darn well please. The avocado is so healthy that it basically […]

Perfect Healthy Blondies

by Kelly M

These blondies are like sunshine. I speak truth. There I was, in the second world war on math and chemistry problems. Crawling through the trench of papers and fully convinced that I was the next casualty of final exams, I saw a beacon of light. Even through the blurry, out of focus studying machines that […]

Healthy Funfetti Cake

by Kelly M

Every day is a celebration. Sure the far off festivities are important, but I don’t see someday on the calendar. Remember the little celebrations that make today special. Make yourself a cake beacause you rock. Perform a poem with some friends.  (I’m the one on the right! And we scored really well.) Treat yourself to […]

Single Serving Snickerdoodle {#MyHomeTownGuide LA Edition!}

by Kelly M

{Partner post} This is an ode to great food and an ode to joy. Is that redundant? This snickerdoodle is inspired by my favorite cookie of all time: the cinnamon sugar cookie from Diddy Riese in Westwood. It’s perfectly soft, perfectly sweet, and perfectly perfect. I aimed to recreate a healthy version of this indulgence […]

Single Serving Cinnamon Roll

by Kelly M

This is just one of those magical happy recipes. I adore it. I am considering choreographing an interpretive dance of appreciation for this cinnamon roll, but I don’t think it would do this miraculous confection justice. Perhaps a full-scale musical would be more fitting? It must clearly indicate how amazing this recipe is. Preferably with […]

Healthy Texas Sheet Cake

by Kelly M

Also known as a big hunk of chocolate cake perfection. I feel like I should give you some history on this. Instead of quoting the Texas sheet cake Wikipedia page that does not exist, I’ll tell you that all my taste testers adored this and I’ve never been to Texas but I have seen it […]

Healthy Homemade Pop Tarts

by Kelly M

This is childhood right here. I hope this makes up for years of eating pop tarts like they are actual food. They’re not. But darn it do those chemicals taste good. Pop tarts are serious business, so I’m not going to get into a back story on my childhood love of pop tarts and a […]
