Blackberry Cobbler

Blackberry cobbler Summer is ending. I mean, you wouldn’t know it from the temperature, the trees, or the seasonal decor at Marshalls, but summer is ending,  and I can hardly wait. The one thing I will miss from summer is all the gorgeous produce- like blackberries. I love berry cobblers of all shapes, forms, styles,…

Strawberry Cobbler

I love fresh strawberries, and they’re never better than in the summer. But they also get moldy. Like, really fast. In the time in takes me to carry them from the (reusable! Don’t use plastic bags) grocery bag to the fridge, two of them have gone fuzzy, and the rest are getting squishy. If you…

2 Ingredient Pizza Dough

  Fresh pizza is one of my favorite things, but it takes forever to make and rise. Not anymore. I was recently out of yeast, but I really wanted fresh pizza. Enter greek yogurt and self rising flour. Two ingredients, and no rising time. The rumors are true. Fresh pizza crust is so good, you…

Berry Sandwich Smoothie

I like recipes that make you think. Or mildly alarm you. Now see, when I cleaned out the freezer, which started this whole shebang, I made a shelf in the door just for ice cream sandwiches. And I was planning to make this smoothie with frozen yogurt, to keep up some pretense of health (if…

Pita Bread

Did you know that you can have fresh pita and hummus in under 40 minutes? The rumors are true. Making fresh pita always intimidated me- but it’s really not too different from making fresh tortillas. Back in the good old days, before I knew what the quadratic formula was or what constituted high crimes and…

Creamy Bok Choy Soup

Want to impress someone (this can include yourself) in a hurry? Make this soup. It sounds fancy, looks great, tastes delicious, and takes 3 ingredients and 10 minutes. My kind of dish! Now, I know how fond adults are of saying “You’re young! How can you be so tired!”. Well, you see, I study all…

Blueberry-Vanilla Oatmeal Bars

I’ve been making oatmeal cookies from a recipe on the back of a Trader Joe’s bag for years. My family loves them, they’re healthy, and they have chocolate. Those three don’t usually happen together. They’re delicious, but have a ton of butter and sugar. I realize that might make the health part seem redundant, but…

Artichokes and Tzatziki

10 year old me could never have seen me writing this recipe. A few years ago, I was disgusted by artichokes. For one, I never quite grasped the concept of artichokes being vegetables, so I was horrified by the thought of eating an artichoke’s heart. Yeah, I could read by the time I was three,…
