It’s what’s inside that counts…

With it being my last week at the Library of Congress, I had to bring only the best of the best to my going away “Tea Party” today so, I made these delightful truffles. If you are a coffee lover, like myself, then try out these amazing dark chocolate raspberry truffles below. If you are…

Now I’m (all) “Fo(u)r-Fudge-Seconds”….

Bex has never attempted a fudge creation until now. But, this experiment was quite the success. The result was far from an extremely rich and heavy fudge, rather it was a tasteful light treat to satisfy your sweet tooth craving. I am excited to try this out with my other coconut butter flavors as well and see…

Just another morning of pear-adise…

You may be like me in that you tend to grab the same fruits every time you go to the grocery store: bananas, apples, more bananas, oh look…Fuji apples! Occasionally, when other fruits are on sale, I will grab some blueberries, strawberries, or grapefruit but the other day I came to thinking how long it…

You walnut regret eating these cookies for breakfast…

And the award for “Best Baking Intern” goes to (drum roll, please)….Breakfastwithbex! I’d say a pleasant sweet treat surprise at our monthly staff meeting was welcomed with open….mouths. Considering my supervisor ate 6 cookies in one sitting and I left work without a cookie to spare, I shall assume that my latest baking experiment was a success. Try…

Citrus-elf down and make a Baked Cinnamon Grapefruit Delight!

Another snow day in DC, baby! Ah, the feeling of waking up and knowing that I can experiment in the kitchen with a new breakfast treat is great! I have been dying to try baked grapefruit for quite some time now, and let me tell you; it is absolutely unreal. Before placing the grapefruit in the…

Go-Ji or Go Home!

I am very excited to be working with Vitacost.com and Health Bites to help spread the message of raising health by showing others how to fuel their bodies with healthy and delicious breakfasts! Vitacost.com is an online company that sells the same health and wellness products as Whole Foods, but up to 50% retail. Check out their site,…

Need an apple-ing Thanksgiving dessert? Apple Crisp to the rescue!

Breakfastwithbex or Bakingwithbetsy?! Between the pumpkin pies and mincemeat pies baking in the oven all day long, I did not think it was possible for Betsy Doser to top the delicious Thanksgiving dessert scents engulfing the entire house. But oh, was I wrong! Tonight’s Thanksgiving Eve dinner and the belated celebration of my Dad’s birthday was…

I’m going (wal)nuts at how delicious this oatmeal is…

We all know that the best gifts come in the form of food. So, when I came home for Thanksgiving break with an edible holiday treat awaiting me, I was pretty pumped. Archer Farms Holiday Edition Spiced Fruit & Nut Trail Mix. Can you say, YUM!?!? This mix is “The Bomb” as Mama Doser would say. Filled…

This breakfast is so parfai(c)t I can dairy-ly handle it…

As many of you know, I love making breakfast every morning. But what I love more than just making breakfast for myself is when I am able to share my breakfast creations with friends and family. When Assistant Director of Editorial Services & Social Media at SLU, Meg Bernier, wanted to meet to discuss my…

Get the in-cide(r) scoop on how to spice up your tea…

Confession: I live my life based on meticulous day-to-day schedules. These are not just any schedules, but rather ones that embody preciseness to the most extreme level: start and finish times for countless responsibilities including writing articles, attending meetings, working on internship applications, sweating through volleyball practices, formatting the newspaper, and the list goes on….

Prepare to FALL in love with this Pumpkin Spice & Apple Cinnamon Parfait

There are ONLY 68 DAYS until Christmas, which means that Bex currently listens to Michael Buble’s Christmas album 24/7, discusses Christmas presents with her mom at least three times during a given day and cannot wait to start decorating for the holiday season. But, Bex should not jump the gun too soon (or is it already too late…?) because fall is still…
