My favorite part of winter break is waking up late to enjoy leisurely breakfasts, my all-time favorite meal! I love eating breakfast foods at all times of the day, so naturally I was attracted to this delectable Cinnamon Toast recipe that I found recently. Because there’s no better time for a midnight snack than between writing an endless amount of college essays, this sweet treat tasted especially delicious! Continue reading
A couple of months ago Nicki Anderson, a health and fitness guru, contacted me to guest post on At350Degrees. She owned and operated the award-winning Reality Fitness, Inc. Personal Training studio, has authored four health and motivational books (Nicki Anderson’s Single Step Weight Loss and 101 Ways to Motivate Your Clients and Increase Retention), and is a health and fitness contributor to websites, magazines, and newspapers. She’s found delicious guilt-free summer snacks using Stevia–my favorite so far, Apple Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies!
In one of my latest posts, Almond Joy Baked Oatmeal, I promised to feature more healthy and nutritious dessert recipes, so this afternoon I tried making a paleo pumpkin cookie recipe. Fortunately, they were wheat and dairy free; unfortunately, you could definitely tell. And because nothing is more disappointing that a less than tasty dessert, I had to try these cinnamon streusel pancakes to uplift my dejected taste buds. Continue reading
It seems like it’s been a while since I’ve posted because I just got back from a summer program at Yale! Now that I’m back home and ready to celebrate the final month of summer, you can expect a bunch of dessert recipes coming your way this upcoming August! Most of my stay in New Haven was characterized by innumerable frozen yogurt runs to escape sweltering heat, humidity, and non air-conditioned dorm rooms, but now I can also say that I definitely understand the “Freshman 15”…huge buffets for every meal make cookies, pasta, and vanilla almond granola just an extra scoop away. But now that I’m back (with some added pre-college padding) you might be noticing some more healthy dessert and breakfast recipe postings, but don’t worry, I won’t hold back on my usual indulgent, Paula Deen style recipes!

I’m free!!!!…from AP tests that is! While AP season consisted of two weeks studying in my bedroom (aka prison) and having sore fingers from an intense amount of frantic writing, at least I was able to enjoy some quiet mornings of good breakfasts…And if you follow my writing, you should know that I’m crazy for breakfast! After all, what ‘s better study fuel than these waffles with a heavy dose of chocolate?! Continue reading
Happy New Year! I wanted to start the new year off right with my favorite meal: breakfast! I thought crepes would be absolutely perfect because I loved making the Nutella Crepes and because my family had some dulce de leche left in the fridge, which I wanted to use before my dad finished the whole can! When he was a kid, one of his favorite desserts in Argentina was “panqueques con dulce de leche”, or caramel-filled crepes. Continue reading
It’s Winter Break!!!! Yay! (Now finals will no longer mandate my 2-week break from posting recipes!) I don’t know what’s more exciting: 1) that I’m on vacation or 2) that yesterday was the first time I tried Nutella! My friend Gemma swears by this delicious chocolate topping as she eats it from the jar in spoonfuls, but for some reason I’ve never tasted it before…a surprise, considering my dessert obsession! Continue reading
If I could, I would eat breakfast for every meal! I would also live in the kitchen and bake all day…as long as I wouldn’t have to wash the dishes! My mom and I actually have a deal that if I bake, she will clean up, granted that she gets the first bite of whatever dessert is in the oven! Last Sunday it rained again, so instead of going for my usual morning workout, I stayed at home and made pancakes for my family, an unexpected treat for them because I never give up my cherished weekend workouts! Continue reading
I’ve always passed by the mouthwatering Cinnabon stand in the food court, but I’ve never actually eaten a Cinnabon! Although, I have eaten my fair share of cinnamon rolls! While in elementary school, my mom would make slice ‘n bake cinnamon rolls every night (the closest to home-made baking she’ll ever get) an my friends would insist on having sleepovers at my house so we could snack on these fantastic goodies before bed! But now for a sweet and gooey breakfast, these cinnamon bun pancakes are sososo finger-licking delicious! Besides the perfect combination of vanilla pancakes and sweet cinnamon swirls, what makes this breakfast treat so delicious is how the swirl becomes a caramelized, chewy crunch all topped with a magnificent icing glaze! Everyone in the house on Sunday morning, myself included, can proudly declare that these are the best pancakes ever made, because as Cinnabon says “life needs frosting“! Enjoy!!!
