Blueberry Fig Newton Cookies

Crunchy out of the oven, these fresh, vibrant blueberry fig newtons soften up by the second day, leaving you with an amped up version of the store-bought.

Recipe creation is a journey for the food blogger. It starts with an idea – that “Aha!” moment you have as you’re scrolling Pinterest or watch Food Network where two ideas connect and you have your next culinary project. Sometimes it’s walking along a market and discovering an ingredient you can hardly pronounce and deciding […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars

If you're a peanut butter lover, get ready to meet your new best friend. These decadent bars are intense! #peanutbutter

  Few things remind me of childhood like peanut butter. From the bright pink, Barbie lunchbox of kindergarten to the nondescript, brown bag of high school. My morning breakfast routine for the four years of high school. Peanut butter desserts my mom would make for after-school snacks, and even a delightful trip to Mall of […]

Nutty Banana Bread Scones And Cinnamon Glaze

Scones that taste like banana bread! Drizzled with cinnamon glaze, you'll be licking the plate for sure!

  Sometimes in life, you just gotta roll with the punches. When it hands you lemons, make lemonade (Cherry Mint Lemonade…). When it hands you fireworks on a holiday you aren’t celebrating, drink wine. And when it hands you a hangover and you realize nothing is open and you have no bread, you open the […]

Soft, Chewy Brownies from Scratch

Brownies made from scratch. Get your milk ready and dive in!

Some people love lounging about on the couch in their pjs. I love foraging in my kitchen…in pjs. You’ll know I’ve gone to my happy place if you enter the apartment and greet me with my mussy hair all frizzed back into a ponytail and I’ve got flour handprints on my yoga pants. But what […]

Salted Caramel Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies

Salted Caramel Chocolate Shortbread Cookies (5 of 8)

My best friend is always telling me I am optimistic. My other best friend (yes, I know…I have two best friends) calls me chica loca (If you have no Spanish to reference that to, that’s Crazy Chic – although how you went so long without learning how to say ‘crazy’ in Spanish is simply loco! […]

Cranberry Coconut Coffee Cake Muffins

Cranberry Coconut Coffee Cake Muffins

Recently, I saw something online about a dating site…for foodies. My first thought was, “Why would that be a site that would work?” I mean, I know it’s good to have a few things in common and everything, but choosing your dating or even future life partner based on whether or not he’s a foodaholic?! […]

Chocolate Chunk Almond Banana Protein Muffins

Chocolate Chip Almond Muffins

If you’ve followed Curried Cantaloupe over the past year, you may already know how much I love breakfast. (We made coconut orange smoothies, french toast pancakes, and funfetti waffles after all.) I’m a total morning person. No, I don’t get up to do yoga or anything. Nor do I set out for a 5 mile […]

Pumpkin Butter Yogurt Parfait

Pumpkin Butter Yogurt Parfait

I’m kind of on a yogurt kick…because I just bought a yogurt machine!! I’m trying not to spend money on things I can’t take back with me next year as we prepare to think about trying to settle in the USA on a more permanent basis. But this one has been churning around in my […]

Orange ya glad…?

Homemade Pumpkin Butter Recipe

It’s pumpkin season! Not only did a million pumpkin recipes manage to pop everywhere this past week, but I started to crave pumpkin the second I read the word pumpkin somewhere. Is it just me or are things getting a little out of hand? I don’t remember seeing pumpkin milkshakes in August when I was […]

Homemade Funfetti Waffles

Funfetti Waffles

This girl deserves some cake right up in here! Me, that’s who! Actually, you too! I’d love for you to celebrate with me – the more the merrier I always say. But it’s actually only 8:30 in the morning so there’s only one way I’ll feel good about eating cake in the morning. Because there […]
