Sweet ‘n Crunchy Toast

  Oh gosh. Oh my gosh. Oh. My. Gosh. This is so simple and awesome. It’s mind-blowing. And if you haven’t had some version of sugary toast for breakfast lately, you’re missing out. Because these are So. Freaking. Amazing. So amazing, evidently, that I can’t speak more than one word per sentence. And you know,…

Molten Chocolate Cobbler

Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness. Oh my goodness. I have found heaven and nirvana and that gold watch I lost two years ago. The bliss you experience with this cobbler is greater than any bliss you have ever experienced. That is no exaggeration.  I’m not lying. I’m still not lying. It’s not opposite day….

Two-Ingredient Microwave Fudge

Seriously, if this isn’t the simplest fudge you have ever encountered, I don’t know how I can help you.  This one recipe inspired me to think about starting up a new section of this blog, called Kitchen Easy.  Ha. Ha. Ha. It rhymes and it sounds like Kitchen Cici! Heehee. Oh come on, don’t be…

Easy One-Step Pumpkin Cake

It’s perfect timing, really. Now that Thanksgiving and the holidays are over, it’s high time to load up on some of those delicious grocery store sales. You know: the $1 festive cake mix, the 50¢ box of candy canes. This time, though, it was the $1.24 canned pumpkin that caught my eye. And then I wondered…

Sweet ‘n Buttery Carrots

What can you do when you wake up one day and find that 6 pounds of carrots have found their way into your fridge? Well, you could make carrot muffins, carrot cake, and carrot soup, but that will only get you so far. What you need to do is eat straight carrot. I’m sorry, there…

Delicious, golden-brown sweetness. Glorious, warm-and-sticky caramel. It’s like all of your sweet pastry dreams in one fantastic breakfast pastry. Now open your eyes. Ignore the paradoxical nature…

All-Natural Microwave Granola

You read that right. Crunchy granola in less than 5 minutes. No ovens involved. It’s pretty darn healthy too—none of that brown evaporated cane syrup rice juice business. I’ve actually been making it in my dorm room for quite some time, although I’m not entirely sure if my roommate approves of our room consistently smelling like…

Sweet & Tangy Blueberry Jam

If you’ve been buying store-bought jam, you’ve been missing out.  Real blueberry jam is so ridiculously easy, you could make it every morning to go with your bagel, and then every afternoon to go with your PB&J.  Seriously. Stop buying the jar stuff. It’s filled with weird ingredients, preservatives, and heaping amounts of sugar.  Don’t…

No-Oven Honey Roasted Almonds

Have you ever had one of those honey roasted soy nuts? Maybe a more accurate description would be, Have you ever had five handfuls of those honey roasted soy nuts? I have. Multiple times. So I did what I always do when I eat something delicious yet simple: examine the Ingredients list, hoping to get…
