 MAKING EVEN A GOOD, SIMPLE FRUIT SMOOTHIE REQUIRES A LITTLE PRACTICE. Or, it requires a recipe from someone who’s had practice! My fiance Therese and I drink smoothies all the time, and this is her easy fruit smoothie she takes to work in the morning. Once you get the hang of making your own smoothies, you can customize them easily and endlessly! It becomes very easy to make your own smoothies without a recipe. I rarely make my smoothies the exact same way twice. I’m usually in the...

 NUTELLA’S NUTTY, CHOCOLATEY GOODNESS IS ALREADY DELICIOUS BY ITSELF. But the fact that it’s already a finished product makes it easy to combine with other things, and with a very reliable result. For example, using it to make Nutella brownies! I also would like to put a recipe for Nutella-stuffed cookies, but I’m still finishing my recipe for those.   This recipe is all about beating your ingredients. You’ll need a high-powered mixer, ideally a stand mixer. There’s literally no liquid...
Recipe of the Day: Extra moist, easy and delicious carrot cake recipe

Recipe of the Day: Extra moist, easy and delicious carrot cake recipe

Carrot cake is so delicious. I can’t remember having a carrot cake I disliked, but there’s still a big, big difference between an incredible, moist carrot cake and a merely good one. It’s bizarre that using a vegetable results in such a soft, moist, tasty cake.   A nice benefit of carrot cake that makes it even more festive is its natural orange coloring. I think I’m going to make this recipe over Christmas this year with my fiance Therese.   And it’s actually a pretty healthy option for cake!...
Recipe of the Day: Extra easy, extra tangy cream cheese frosting recipe

Recipe of the Day: Extra easy, extra tangy cream cheese frosting recipe

Cream cheese frosting is the best frosting. I love cream cheese frosting more than chocolate frosting, more than vanilla frosting, even more than lemon frosting. It’s the best. Sadly it doesn’t go with every kind of cake. But the cakes it does go with are better with cream cheese frosting than any other. It sounds like I’m exaggerating, but if you’ve had cream cheese frosting on a good carrot cake, you know what I’m talking about.   Ingredients   8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature 2...
 
Recipe of the Day: Spinach Salad with White Wine Honey Vinaigrette Recipe

Recipe of the Day: Spinach Salad with White Wine Honey Vinaigrette Recipe

Salad is something I need good recipes for more than most. Because honestly, I’m not crazy about salad, and without the motivation of a delicious salad I wouldn’t make it.   Which is why recipes like this are great for me to have in my personal cookbook!   My fiance Therese and I actually did something new for Thanksgiving: we made a salad bar for everybody. Salad doesn’t exactly scream Thanksgiving, but other people brought the turkey and the more traditional dishes, so we figured it would be...
Recipe of the Day: How to make cashew butter in 10 minutes

Recipe of the Day: How to make cashew butter in 10 minutes

I’m making some nut butter today, and I thought I’d share this cashew butter recipe with everybody! It’s super easy, though you need the right equipment for it. It takes ten minutes once you’ve got the blender and nuts. You’ll need a high-powered blender or food processor. I use the Ninja BL770, but there are other blenders (like Vitamixes) that have the same 2 horsepower.   Nut butter in general is a very versatile ingredient and topping. Put in a smoothie, add to yogurt, or (my personal...

Cocktail of the Day: Banana Orange Frozen Cocktail Recipe

Cocktail of the Day: Banana Orange Frozen Cocktail Recipe

This was actually the first frozen cocktail recipe I created. My fiancé loves it and insisted I put it on the website. I thought it was really good, just not as much as she does. Therese suggested I add some strawberries which would be a perfect complement if you need more than orange and banana. So I took her suggestion and added those in as an optional ingredient. By the way, if you add strawberries, you shouldn’t need the ice cubes.   It’s critical that the banana be frozen. If you’ve tried...
Recipe of the Day: Extra moist, extra chocolatey chocolate banana bread recipe

Recipe of the Day: Extra moist, extra chocolatey chocolate banana bread recipe

I love banana bread, but every time I mention making some – which is more often than most people, I admit – my fiancé says, “Oh, yes, with chocolate chips! Mmm!” But there, we arrive at a crossroads. I’m actually not a fan of just adding chocolate chips. Somehow, it just doesn’t work for me. It’s not that I don’t like chocolate, because I love chocolate too. If anything, I like it more than Therese does, because the only real complaint I have about adding chocolate chips to banana...
 
 
Recipe of the Day: Easy, Creamy Egg Salad With Celery Recipe

Recipe of the Day: Easy, Creamy Egg Salad With Celery Recipe

Egg salad is a great snack. Creamy, at least partly nutritious, and easily combined with other foods. I used to enjoy a store-bought egg salad from time to time, but a homemade egg salad is far superior: it’s fresher, creamier, and it’s easy enough that it’s no problem for even the worst cooks among us. I like it by itself, but even better, I prefer it in conjunction with other foods when I’m making a sandwich. Bacon especially comes to mind… Mmm. Since the main...
