I made us some cookies.
I know, how kind of me.
It started as a quest for cookies that tasted like Nutella, if, say, you were the type of person who may or may not have bragged with his 7-year old niece that he could bake any cookie ever known to mankind. Including, but not limited to, a “cookie that’s as awesome as Nutella but does not have Nutella in it!”

Wait, what? Spaghetti on this blog? Are you kidding? Are you going insane? Where are the zoodles man?
I know, shocking.
Take a deep breath, relax, everything will be okay. I promise.
But you see, I recently bought these gluten-free spaghetti (made with a blend of organic corn, rice, and quinoa), and they taste so darn good I was like “Score! Finally a GF pasta that’s like the real deal!”

Some recipes are so simple and quick they should hardly be called recipes. This is one of those.
Maybe I should call this an idea instead of recipe. An idea on how to poach eggs.
Maybe that’s a better way to define these Eggs Poached in Marinara Sauce.
A humble but soulful dish that makes for a wonderful breakfast, tasty lunch or dinner.

OK, I’ll admit it, I’m having way too much fun with this cake-in-a-mug thing.
I’m like a kid with a new box of LEGOs: endless entertainment!
I started with the Chocolate Chip Cookie, then it was the Cinnamon Roll (one of the most popular recipes on this blog), followed by the Chocolate Cake, the Apple Pie, the Brownie, and no later than last Friday by the Lemon Pound Cake.
Today it’s all about carrot cake.

If you’ve ever had Starbucks’ Iced Lemon Pound Cake, you know how good it is. Full of lemon flavor, dense, rich, and so so moist.
I haven’t had it in years — last time was probably 2006 and I was still in college — but I remember perfectly how awesome it is. Maybe a bit too sweet (at least for me) but awesome nonetheless.
A tasty little lemon cake goes great with just about any drink you can think of: coffee, tea, latte, hot chocolate, cappuccino, mocha, etc.

Today I have one question for you guys: Why aren't most cookies square-shaped?
Or to put it differently, why are most of the cookies round-shaped?
It’s one of those questions that has troubled me most and I’ve always wanted to know the answer to — but I was too afraid to ask.
When I was a kid I thought that all cookies begin as squares, but then people always nibble off the corners because they're so tasty. Hence, round cookies.
Was I onto something?
I dunno, I dunno…

There is a bunch of zoodle recipes on this website: Lemon garlic chicken zoodles, Avocado pesto zoodles, Butter zoodles with herbs, Zoodles aglio olio e peperoncino, Pad Thai Zoodles, Zoodle Pie, Zoodles with Marinara Sauce, and Zoodle Bake.
All of which are pretty darn fantastic, and yet this one might be my absolute favorite.

If I were asked to cook the healthiest dish possible, these Creamy Turmeric Sweet Potatoes would probably be it.
It’s basically the combination of two superfoods (i.e., sweet potatoes and garlic) + what is considered to be the healthiest spice ever (turmeric aka the “Golden Spice of Life” ) + the healthiest fat on earth (olive oil).

These Are. Hands Down. The Fudgiest Brownies. Ever.
I’m not joking. I had to chill the pan for quite some time before I was able to slice 'em.
Mom even said that these brownies were too fudgy and too chocolatey. Can you believe that? Too fudgy and too chocolatey?
Seriously mom, brownies are supposed to be fudgy and chocolatey. Do we need to have another conversation about cakey brownies and how they are not brownies but just chocolate cake cut into squares?
I don’t think so…

The proverbial phrase "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade" is usually used to encourage optimism and a positive can-do attitude when one faces adversity or misfortune.
But lemme just say that I wholeheartedly hate that phrase.
Why should I make lemonade with your stupid lemons life?
You want me to open a lemonade stand on the street selling lemonade 50¢ a cup. Nah, it's not an option — I’m not 0 years old anymore.
Maybe I can consider becoming a lemon magnate. I mean if the product cost is zero, I can retail lemons for a considerable profit. That’s business 101.
But it all depends on the amount of lemon you're giving me life...
