So Sunday was National Ice Cream Day. What better way than to celebrate with an ice cream cake! It also happened to be my Hubby’s birthday and this amazing cookie explosion cake was his only request.

Healthy Chocolate Chip Banana Bread



I'm sorry. Did I just make a bread with NO BUTTER or OIL? Yup. I did. Was it super moist and totally amazing? YES! This is actually a similar rendition to a recipe I have made before for coconut banana bread. I have been on a chocolate chip kick lately so I of course added them to the recipe.You can also use carob chips if you would like! This recipe is perfect if you have a couple of old bananas sitting on your counter that you are wondering what to do with. Don't throw them away! They are perfect for banana bread. The browner the banana, the better.

Taking a Moment for Meso

So I am taking a break today from writing about food to partake in a campaign  to spread awareness about mesothelioma - a cancer caused only by asbestos exposure with everyone. The goal is just to make people more aware of the cancer and to understand where it comes from. If the entire campaign can save one life, it is all worth it! Please read on to understand some facts about mesothelioma.

What causes Meso? Are you at risk?

What are the symptoms?

Crunchy Blue Cheese Celery Slaw



Obsessed with buffalo chicken? Yup, me too. I tried out a new recipe from one of my favorite food shows The Chew. Haven't watched it yet? You are missing out! Clinton Kelly one of my favorite TV personalities came up withe the most amazing buffalo chicken dish. Grilled buffalo chicken a blue cheese celery slaw. Get it? It is a play of buffalo wings, but surprisingly healthier.

Sweet Potato Samosa Burgers



I love Indian food. Samosas are my weakness. Potatoes. Sweet Peas. All wrapped up in a flaky, perfectly fried pouch. Doesn't get much better than that people. So then I thought, why not take samosa flavors and make them into a healthy veggie burger.
