Teno’s Good Morning Apple Muffins & A Challenge Check In

Today is day 21 of the 28 Day Healthy Eating Challenge and I can honestly say this experience has changed the way the Slaters eat for good. Not only that, but I currently have two other sets of friends officially starting their challenges this week and I’m sure...

Heart of Steel Cut Oat Bars

Are you looking for a breakfast bar fit for the sons of Odin? Well look no further, my brothers and sisters of metal, for I have clashed swords with our enemies fat and cholesterol and emerged victorious, with a heart of steel cut oats. This healthy, hearty...

Eternal Pizza Party Cupcakes + A Seibei Giveaway

I haven’t made a cupcake in a long time. Maybe I was feeling a little typecast as “the cupcake blogger.” Lately I’ve been making doughnuts, brownies and whoopie pies galore… but very, very few cupcakes. So when my friend David from Seibei...

Vegan Maple Oatmeal Muffins

Teno’s Snow Day Muffins

So far in Chicago we’ve gotten about 20 inches of snow and it’s still coming down. The trains aren’t running and our car is buried so we had ourselves a snow day. Teno was quite upset that I still had to do some work even though I was at home so I...

Crouching Corn Bread, Hidden Broccoli

Vegan Kitchen Sink Muffins

Every baker has found him/herself with awkward amounts of ingredients left over. A 1/4 cup of mini chocolate chips, a 1/2 cup of coconut, a handful of pecans… no one wants to throw this stuff away because it’s expensive, but how do you use it up in...

Vegan Berry Chai Muffins

Today was an unseasonably warm 56 degree day in Chicago – the sun was shining, the snow melted away revealing three months worth of dog crap and garbage strewn about my neighborhood, and white people everywhere were prematurely wearing shorts. It was too wet to...

LOST Cupcake Toppers

Tony and I have been talking about the new season of LOST a lot lately, and the conversations are eerily similar to the late-night talks we’d have when I was several months pregnant and anxious about becoming a mother. “What do you think it’s going...

Organic Cranberry Lemon Muffins

At work we have a pretty amazing book shelf full of snacks. There are, at all times, at least 10 different kinds of power bars- also, granola, two-bite cookies, flax crackers and the crowning jewel- our weekly delivery of fresh organic fruit. Yeah, I know. This week...

Strawberry Banana Muffins

Mac & Cheese Throwdown!

Hey, remember like, months ago when I posted pictures of my mac & cheese cupcake and the whole entire Internerd freaked out? Yeah! I’m finally posting the recipe today along with all the winning recipes from Echo magazine’s Mac & Cheese Throwdown!...
