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 […]

Healthy Bacon Peanut Butter Banana Bread

by Kelly M

Don’t give me that look. Actually, take whatever look you were going to give me, and give half of it to the brilliant Jessica. The other half goes to me and my ability/audacity to make this decadence 70 calories a slice. I have a dream. Jessica has a dream. (I know this because food blogging […]

Easy Homemade Soft Pretzels

by Kelly M

Welcome to Pretzelpalooza. It’s time to get excited. I know I said I already had a favorite recipe, but I think that just changed. These pretzels are pretty darn flippin’ fantastic. They’re easy (ready in under 45 minutes!), low calorie (90 calories!), and whole wheat (whole wheat!). They may just take the cake. Or the […]

I want to be very clear about the following recipe, as it will change your life.  You will be making a large hunk of chocolate cookie dough (chill out Mom, there are no eggs) filled with chocolate that is then covered with more chocolate. And then your mind explodes. It’s […]

Ah-mazing Baked Donut Holes

by Kelly M

I thought about bringing you flowers, but then I realized how much better donuts are. Don’t get me wrong. I love flowers. I stop and smell them all the time, just like the saying says so. (I know it says roses, but flowers, roses, tom-ay-to, to-mah-to… it’s all the same.) To say thank you for […]

Healthy Easy Biscuits

by Kelly M

Someone please take these away from me. Actually, please don’t. I would like to eat them all. *proceeds to kitchen* *eats superbly delicious biscuit* *debates finishing off bag…* Nope. Bad.

Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookie Butter

by Kelly M

There is no better way to celebrate freedom than with cookie butter. Finals are over. I’m still recovering from the subsequent brain mush, and other exam side effects such as using effects correctly and saying subsequent in casual speech. Together, we can find a cure. Behold. The cure. Sugar pretty much always does the trick, […]

Gooey Chocolate Pudding Cake

by Kelly M

It’s amazing how some of the most ridiculously delicious foods are the most ridiculously unphotogenic. I tried. I really did. Apparently gooey + chocolate + pudding = insanely fun to eat/not as fun to photograph. As long as you’re not one of those people who have the audacity to take pictures of food before they eat […]

Cauliflower Risotto with Roasted Mushrooms (Low Carb/Paleo/Vegan)

by Kelly M

 Making risotto out of cauliflower should not taste this mind-blowingly amazing… but it does. Believe me. It so does. This dish is a problem solver. It solves important, non-math related problems. It takes regular old risotto and makes it vegan, low carb, way way easier, 75 calories a serving… and better tasting. Better! Oh yes.

Healthy Lemon Bars (Low Carb/Low Calorie/Gluten Free/Paleo/Vegan)

by Kelly M

Heck with lemonade. When life gives me lemons, I’m making lemon bars. Let’s face it: we all have to deal with lemons. And sometimes they’re not even the cool lemons like the ones on 30 Rock played by Tina Fey. Nod your head because you understood that reference. Yes. Good. I’m sorry posting has been […]
