This dish is in-grain-ed in my soul forever…

Nothing beats mixing up the day-to-day peanut butter cinnamon overnight oats with a hearty Saturday brunch full of grains, veggies and spices. After an extremely fun-filled, social and a bit too pricey Fourth of July weekend, Bex was in for some down time this weekend. Laundry, cleaning, cooking, baking and more all made for a mental…

You’re a gran(d)-ola old bar, you’re a high-flying bar…

Fingers crossed that the weather man is right and it truly is heating up out there in time for Spring fest this weekend! The sun is shining and the fruity punches are being made, so what better way to enjoy some outdoor activities and music than with some easy and healthy snacks? Setton Farm’s new…

You butternut squash my dreams of eating this dish again…

We all have those moments in life when we want something so bad but instead of buying it for ourselves, we buy it for our best friend, sibling, cousin, mom, and maybe even dog, in hopes that we can just “borrow” it or live vicariously through that person. Well, my brothers and I got my…

This will bake your mouth water….

I love when something or someone inspires me to make a new breakfast dish. My friend, Colleen McNamara, whom I just met this year through my good friend at SLU, Emma Garfield, is not only an avid Breakfastwithbex fan – making just about every dish I create – but is simply one of the cutest,…

These chocolate mocha protein pancakes are the whey to go…

You wake up with a sweet tooth feeling like, “Damn….I could probably shove 3 donuts to the face right now” but then you realize that you would likely hate yourself for doing so. Thus, instead, you decide to whip up a whopping stack of Chocolate Mocha Protein Pancakes because the fact that “protein” is in the…

Don’t be un(c)raisinable…have more than one cookie

Grandma and Grandpa are coming to visit?!? Get outta town! After talking to Mama Doser on the phone last Wednesday, I found out that G&G were headed up to our family cottage in Westport, Ontario for the weekend. Our cottage on Crosby Lake just so happens to be within an hour and a half distance from…

So many herbs, so little thyme…

Last night, my roommates and I enjoyed a nice glass of red wine (along with a much needed exchange of back massages) and afterwards, I decided to relax in my room and watch the movie of a trailer we previewed in my Media Industries class yesterday: United 93. Knowing it would be hard to watch, I prepared myself…

A legen-dairy ice cream sandwich…full of the ‘Americone Dream’

“Seriously, you better have something baked for me by the time I arrive to SLU…” my best friend, Katie Prue says to me over the phone in anticipation of her visit to her alma mater for Labor Day weekend. “Of course, Honey Bunches,” I reply as I immediately start brainstorming ideas. Bex gets pretty pumped…

I quinoa believe how delicious this is…

Well…my last week in DC has arrived after 8 months of living here. I cannot come close to explaining how exactly I feel right now as I plan to enjoy every aspect of this beautiful city in the next 6 days with my favorite people, travel back home to Penfield, NY to spend time with my family for…

Scone With the Wind…

Bex’s first attempt at making scones can now be crossed off her baking bucket list! I was just talking to one of my best friends, Kahin, about how relaxing and fun it is after a long day to just bake. Not follow a recipe, or even remotely know what you are going to make…but to…

Who you callin’ peanut….

When one questions what he or she feels like eating and thinks, “Hmm, do my tastebuds crave something sweet? Savory perhaps? Or both?” The answer is always: Peanut Butter. Just straight up peanut butter. Grab the jar. Grab a spoon. And just eat it by the spoonful. You won’t regret it. Well, I take that back….
