Oatmeal is definitely in my top 3 of my favorite things to eat for breakfast. It’s just comforting and versatile. I love traditional oatmeal recipes and overnight oats too. I’ll basically take oatmeal any way that I can get it!
Baked oatmeal is something I haven’t made too often for the blog, so I wanted to change that! Baked oatmeal is a great alternative when you want or need to take breakfast on the go, but don’t want to have to worry about bringing a bowl or container for it. Baked oatmeal can be cut into convenient squares to take as needed!
It’s been getting warmer here and I’m feeling some spring vibes for sure so went with strawberries and cream oatmeal! This flavor combo is simple, but perfectly sweet and I love adding strawberries to my oatmeal.
For the cream part of the recipe, I used a combination of half and half and milk. You can change this up as needed. You could use heavy cream or a mixture as I did with regular milk. If you don’t want to use dairy milk at all, almond or coconut will also suffice.
Life has been so crazy lately. Work has been so busy for me and we have all been pretty sick. Things have been super hectic and I’ve been getting home later. Dinners have been sort of a hassle so I’ve been trying to make some new recipes that are super easy to prepare and involve as little hands-on time as possible. Sheet pan dinners to the rescue!
This Sheet Pan Rosemary Chicken and Potatoes is very simple to prepare! Juicy and tender chicken breasts (or you can use chicken thighs!), diced gold potatoes, onion, and some bell peppers. It’s just a delicious sheet pan dinner!
One of the most popular recipes on this blog is my Copycat Starbucks Medicine Ball Tea and also my Starbucks Iced Green Tea. It makes me laugh since these aren’t super complex or impressive recipes, but one thing is for sure, you guys love your Starbucks and who am I kidding? I love it too!
Since we’ve made homemade versions of some of my favorite tea recipes, it’s time we switch to coffee! One of my favorite Starbucks drinks is the Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew. It’s not overly sweet and I also like the smoothness of the cold brew. Let’s get to making our own!
I’ve been having wicked chocolate cake cravings lately. I rarely make cake recipes because I just don’t want a big cake siting around my house (much to my children’s dismay…). Cake sitting around my house is definitely a Miranda from Sex and the City situation for me where it’s too tempting to not touch!
Mug cakes are a great alternative for satisfying your cake cravings in small servings. And this chocolate mug cake is low-carb, gluten-free, and keto-friendly! A total win, right? I’m not following a keto diet, but I do like to experiment with making lower-carb desserts as I try not to eat too much sugar.

February is Heart Health Month and so I have partnered with my friends at Mazola® Corn Oil to create heart healthy recipe to share! And what better recipe to share than this quiche that is packed with heart healthy swaps?! I never used to cook much with corn oil, but I’ve been trying to reduce the amount of saturated fats that we eat. Simple swaps, such as substituting butter with Mazola Corn Oil, is an easy way to make a change. In fact, a clinical study showed Mazola Corn Oil reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil. To learn more about this claim, visit Mazola.com. Needless to say, I’ve been using corn oil a lot more frequently lately!
Say hello to one of my new favorite comfort meals! I made these Thai Curry Chicken Meatballs a few weeks ago and they are so delicious and comforting!
And best of all is that this recipe is supppper simple to make! The meatballs are made with ground chicken, an egg, almond flour (which also makes them gluten-free and low-carb), some garlic, and red curry paste. You can add more or less of the paste depending on how much flavor and spiciness you prefer!
I bake the meatballs in the oven. I use an oven-safe rack to place over the baking sheet (see above). This helps cook the meatballs more evenly from all sides and also helps them get a bit more golden on the outside. You can still bake them without the rack, but I highly recommend having one handy if you can!
