  1. ‘One of Those Days’ Rum Cake

    July 30, 2012 by Holly

    Back in March (yes March, I’m clearly behind) I went on a cruise with my loved ones to the Virgin Islands. It. Was. Glorious. I dieted and worked my butt off so I could be all fit and tan (for fear of picture documentation of my sweets addiction). So when I went on vacay, I felt TOTALLY justified in eating everything and anything I could get my hands on. Cruise ship food, island food, desserts, ice cream, you name it, I probably ate it. That being said, when you get off the ship on any Island in Read more [...]

  2. Peanut Butter Choconut Bars

    July 26, 2012 by Holly

    Any baking addict, by nature, is also a Pinterest addict. They go hand in hand. I’ve never found a website that can literally envelop hours of my life and never lose my attention. I rarely come across a recipe I don’t like and Pinterest might as well be my baking kryptonite. Whenever I get on the site, I usually walk away with at least a dozen recipes I HAVE to make.  I swear, all this working out I'm doing is immediately ruined as soon as I get on Pinterest. (Sugar is the achilles heel of my Read more [...]

  4. Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal-to-Go

    July 24, 2012 by Holly

    If you haven’t figured it out yet, I love peanut butter. I am constantly finding ridiculous reasons to indulge in it. Oh I haven’t had enough protein today? I need peanut butter. I’m depressed. Peanut butter will make it better. The dog looks hungry. I better give her a spoonful of peanut butter.  Man I got WAY too much, I’ll just take a little off the top and give her the rest. (And these are some of the mild excuses). Just a few weekends ago, I found myself hauled up on the couch with Read more [...]

  5. Boyfriend Turtle Cheescake

    July 23, 2012 by Holly

    Once upon a time there was a boy who only ate healthy. He loved lean meats and pretzels. One day, he met the fairest ( 😉 ) maiden in the land. A baking/sweets addict, she wasn’t the type he’d usually go for, but alas, he fell madly in love with her. Their romance thrived, even though she had no taste for meats and he repelled any sweets she threw his way. Still somehow, their love overcame the constant struggle of their taste buds. Okay, okay, I’m being dramatic, but I sure do love fairytales Read more [...]

    Thank you, thank you, thank you The Sly Oyster. I love ‘Game of Thrones’ far too much, and this just made my day.

  7. Whole Wheat Pumpkin Cookies

    May 1, 2012 by Holly

    I love the Fall. It's great for campfires, long runs, and anything and everything pumpkin! Fortunately for me, I don't have to wait for October to indulge in pumpkin every now and again. I had the craving for pumpkin a few weeks ago and decided to try to whip up a healthier version of my mom's fabulous pumpkin cookies. I can't lie, healthier doesn't always mean better, but the result was fantastic! (Don't worry mom, yours will always be the winner). INGREDIENTS: 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce 1 Read more [...]

  8. Buffalo Chicken Bites From Danielle

    March 12, 2012 by Holly

    I'm a slacker. I admit it. I feel like I am SO behind. I have so many recipes to put up here and alas, they are still in my head, on my iphone and in my friends' bellies. On the bright side, me being SO busy (or lazy) has given me the opportunity to lend my blog-space to a good friend. I'm excited for you to check out her recipe, as I am DYING to try these! Danielle Look is a music journalist for & in Indianapolis. Her eclectic musical taste includes everything from electronic Read more [...]

  10. Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

    February 20, 2012 by Holly

    I purchased my very first scale today. Sure, my parents had one at their house when I was growing up, but as an adult woman, I made a promise to myself that I wouldn't obsess over a number on a scale. Setting it up, I had a moment of panic. What if this calorie counting thing hasn't been working? What if I step on the scale and I haven't lost anything? Or worse, what if I've GAINED weight?! But after stepping on the scale, I was suddenly thrilled. I think I must be getting the hang of this calorie Read more [...]
