Pistachio Scones

Pistachio Scones

Hi there everyone! It’s been a long while. As I mentioned in my banana bread post, I’ve been dealing with some medical stuff and December was the tipping point where I had to go get some real help. But I’m back, healthy and ready to get baking again! So for my welcome back recipe, I made some amazing Pistachio Scones. Pistachio Scones with a delicious, delicious almond glaze. Scones are 100% my favorite thing to bake. They’re so easy but they seem so much classier and more impressive than a…

Smores Scones

Smores Scones

It’s September which means for some, cooler camping season has started. Which means smores! I never camped as a kid, but fall meant bonfires and bonfires meant smores. So I whipped together some smore scones to fill my life with smore goodness without the outdoor bugs.

The lime, lemon and blueberry…

I have been eating these every weekday morning all summer and I love them because they’re hearty enough to fill me up until lunch and help me recuperate after a workout. Plus, I don’t give myself much time in the morning so the grab and go is key. After much much practice I finally feel I’ve perfected these oats. Just want some inspiration? Check out…

(Mint) Mocha Muffins

(Mint) Mocha Muffins

Man, February was a crazy month. So of course I decided to end it with mocha muffins – because coffee makes everything easier. So what’s been crazy? Well, my chinchilla and I have been bonding. I trained her that crawling all over me means she gets a pellet. So she’s decided to stop hating me which has led to adorable pictures like this: and this: I’m pretty much becoming a crazy chinchilla lady. But I mean come on, she is the absolute cutest. But anyway, mocha muffins. I don’t like cake-y, super sugary…
