Peaches & Cream Preggo Pops

I just got home from a family vacation in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where fall was in full swing. It felt so lovely to be outside in the cool air, wear flannels, drink hot chocolate and watch the leaves turn yellow. Back in Ohio, it’s 85 degrees.☀️ As a Midwesterner, you hate to wish away any warm weather. But […]

Star Spangled S’mores

I’ve been making tons of star-shaped foods lately, thanks to the Fourth of July and my star silicone molds. These molds can be frozen for fro yo stars or baked into cakes. Or you can melt chocolate into star molds for patriotic s’mores!  I came across star-shaped marshmallows at World Market and thought they’d make cute s’mores with a […]

Blueberry Greek Yogurt Popsicles

My husband and I have dessert almost every night. Sometimes it’s a real-deal special dessert, like Angel Food Cake and whipped cream, but more often it’s a few dark chocolate chips or frozen fruit {if you’ve never had frozen cherries, you MUST}. There’s something so satisfying about having something sweet after dinner. The key is to make […]

Key Lime Pie Popsicles

Popsi-Palooza continues! These Key Lime Pie Popsicles are pretty simple to make, since I used key lime-flavored yogurt. You could also try making your own with vanilla yogurt, lime juice and key lime extract.  The best part of these are the toppings! It looks like a lot of candy on top, but it’s just 1/4 graham […]

Zebra Popsicles

It’s getting hot here in Columbus, which means lots of splash pads, sunscreen, cold dinners and popsicles! I just bought some popsicle molds and am having fun experimenting with different ingredients. Today I’m posting three separate popsicle recipes {recipe term used very loosely…} Zebra Pops (below): for chocolate lovahs! Key Lime Pie Pops: for summer lovahs! Blueberry Greek […]

Homemade Fruity Frozen Yogurt

When I first heard of homemade frozen yogurt, visions of complicated ice cream-making danced in my head. It didn’t occur to me that you just need one ingredient for frozen yogurt: Yogurt, frozen.  I’m always looking for healthy desserts to satisfy my sweet tooth, and this fits the bill. It’s also a fun treat to give to […]

Donut Hole Recipe {for One}

Today is National Donut Day. Let’s celebrate with some portion control! Right? Most donuts have about 400 calories, which is high, but the calories aren’t actually a deal breaker for me. In fact, 400 calories is a good breakfast calorie goal for most people. It’s all about the protein and fiber, which help you get and stay full, and this […]

Angel Food Stars

Looking for a fun, patriot dessert? These Angel Food Stars are easy to make & decorate with different toppings, which makes them perfect for kids in the kitchen. Angel food is also a healthier alternative to other heavy desserts, since it has no saturated fat (actually no fat at all) and pairs beautifully with fresh berries.  I made these using this Angel […]

Cake Pop Recipe {for One}

Ever want just one single-serving of dessert without the tempting leftovers? Me too. Here’s my cake pop recipe {for one!}. And major bonus – it’s under 100 calories. I tried nine different iterations of my recipe to find vanilla & chocolate versions that were delicious and under 100 cals. It’s not easy being a cake pop recipe tester, guys. But […]
