French Toast Needs Sugar

French Toast was one of the first stove top things I learned to cook. Since it was harder to burn, I preferred making them over pancakes. To this day, I prefer making French Roast over pancake made from a complete mix. Yes, the ready to make mix only calls for water and a hot skillet,... Continue Reading →

Apples, Apples, Apples

Were your apple choices restricted as a kid? I recall having Red Delicious, Granny Smith, and Gala apples in my house on a regular basis. I never really put much thought into it. During college, a friend introduced me to Pink Lady apples, which automatically takes me back to Grease. But that's not what today's... Continue Reading →

S’mores

S'mores are my guilty pleasure. Marshmallows, milk chocolate, and graham crackers are not safe. When I am in the mood, I can eat between two to four s'mores. Serving wise, that probably sounds like a light snack or dessert. Well, let's see what MyFitnessPal says. Yep. That's just one. So four of these is 792... Continue Reading →

Last year, I decided to make some dietary changes. I wanted to cut down on empty calories without completely giving up dessert. Ice cream is a high calorie desert with little to no nutritional value. If it is not measured correctly, it is very easy to eat 2 to 3 servings of it in one... Continue Reading →
