Pumpkin Oat Blender Bread

Okay so I know it’s not fall right now, so maybe all things pumpkins should be on hold, but I have no regrets with this amazing blender bread! It is soft, sweet, spicy and freakin delicious especially with raisins sprinkled in. If you’re feeling chocolatey, swap the raisins out for dark chocolate chips or doContinue reading “Pumpkin Oat Blender Bread”

Triple Chocolate Trifle

This is by far one of the best things we made on vacation last week! And we made a lot of delicious stuff. I’m not the hugest cake fan (a little dry for me) but pair it with pudding, whipped cream (or cool whip in this case) and something sweet and crunchy and I’m SOContinue reading “Triple Chocolate Trifle”

Creamy Shrimp Alfredo

Ooh baby did this come out good! This recipe was inspired by my creamy spinach and chicken pasta and it sure as heck won’t be my last creamy pasta recipe. I used to make a roux from scratch for cream sauces but using evaporated milk and cornstarch is SO much easier and faster. For aContinue reading “Creamy Shrimp Alfredo”

Chocolate Chia Pudding

Chia pudding literally is the easiest to make! It’s also perfect to pack the night before (or the morning of when I want a mid-morning snack) and this particular flavor reminds me of those chocolate pudding cups I snacked on growing up! Chia seeds may be tiny but they pack a punch when it comesContinue reading “Chocolate Chia Pudding”

Easiest Crock Pot Chicken Breast

Finally got around to regularly breaking out the crock pot for some much needed speedy week-night dinners! This chicken breast is juicy and flavorful, but mild enough to be used a bunch of different ways. Serve it over a salad, shred it for a sandwich, put it on a pizza—so many options! If you’re moreContinue reading “Easiest Crock Pot Chicken Breast”

Butterscotch, Oat & Chia Seed Energy Bites

Like all humans (and especially climbers) I need a lot of carbs to get through my day! They keep me energized, satisfied, and are crucial to fueling my training. When it’s cooler out, I do a lot of baking for my carb-based snacks. Blender muffins and breads were my go-to this winter followed by granolaContinue reading “Butterscotch, Oat & Chia Seed Energy Bites”

2-Ingredient Banana Cream Smoothie

I don’t know about your neck of the woods but here in southern CT it’s been hot! Steamy days and not-cool-enough nights have got me working in a bathing suit most days (not because we have water around but just because it’s the least amount of clothes I can wear while still wearing, you know,Continue reading “2-Ingredient Banana Cream Smoothie”

Chewy White Chocolate & Raisin Granola Bars

If you’ve never made granola bars (or homemade granola) you are missing out! So easy, cheap, nourishing, and delicious—what more do you need? I got the idea for this flavor when I was snacking on my last batch of granola with a handful of raisins and white chocolate chips. I recently just discovered how raisinsContinue reading “Chewy White Chocolate & Raisin Granola Bars”
