Game of Scones

My favorite part about coming home to Penfield, NY is catching up with family and friends who have played a significant role in my life and continue to have a significant impact on my life for many years to come. I spent a great deal of time with my immediate family, grandparents and my handful of…

During times that donut make sense, we always have family

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…

Oh Deer, look at the size of that Buck(wheat stack)!

Well, the holiday break is over, which means less free time to experiment with new recipes, stage countless photos of my breakfasts, spend hours writing up blog posts and enjoy the many leisures of being home. But, what this also means is that I AM HEADED TO DC!!!! I am excited, anxious, and I will admit, a bit nervous…

Get oat-ta town…did you say Coffee-infused oats?!

Coffee. Dark Chocolate. Raspberry. Peanut Butter. Need I say more? This sweet and savory baked oatmeal is worth every single bite. When my best friend, Allison, planned to come over for a true breakfast with Bex before heading back to D.C., I wanted to experiment with a new recipe in order to include a few of her favorite…

Will you berry me, Breakfast Blueberry-Nut Oatmeal?!

What a nice morning to wake up to a lovely snow flurry that really came out of the blue(berry)! Nothing keeps the holiday spirit alive throughout the winter months quite like a beautiful snow globe view from my windowsill. And what better way to accompany a gorgeous snowfall then with a warm bowl of oatmeal accompanied by a…

Who’s bready for next Christmas?!

Even though Christmas day has passed, the Christmas spirit is still alive! I love listening to Christmas music, watching holiday movies, eating cookies and spending time with my family around the decorated tree for a few more weeks. Heck, if it were up to me we would celebrate Christmas all year round! But that may be…

All I want for Christmas is…

I don’t want a lot for Christmas…there is just one thing I need: These simple pancakes layered with strawberries, banana slices, and vanilla greek yogurt. Merry (early) Christmas to me! I am so sorry that I have not posted since Thanksgiving! Between finals, research papers, and meetings to close-off the Fall semester, I barely had…

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…
