Coconut Cake Pancakes with Maple-Glazed Bananas

I had these pancakes three times this week. Because they’re so quick and easy (with so few dishes to wash), that they’ve been my go-to while I’ve spent my days training (and, so far, mostly being trained by) my eight-week old puppy.  Plus, they are so, so good. (was that…

Welcome Home Puppy! Peanut Butter and Honey Homemade Dog Treats

Over the past few days, I haven’t had as much time for The Scrumptious Pumpkin site as I’d like. I haven’t had much time for anything, actually. I’ve had my hands full with the new addition to our family: an eight-week-old beagle named Calvin. He is: two parts ‘boundless tornado of…

Huevos Rancheros Easy-Crust Pizza

Cheers to it finally being (almost) the weekend. And cheers to the fact that Cinco do Mayo can be fully and properly celebrated this year because it just so happens to fall on a Saturday! I started the celebration early at our house by making this healthy, hearty, and delicious…

Skinny Chocolate Oatmeal and Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches

Do you have a food you’ve loved since preschool? That you’ve never grown tired of and think you never possibly could get tired of? I absolutely do. That food for me is peanut butter. I loved it when I was three, and I love it still. I’m incredibly loyal to peanut…

Sauteed Green Beans with Roasted Tomato Sauce

It’s really strange sometimes, what you remember. Or at least, it’s strange what I remember. Several years ago, my husband and I decided to spend a long weekend visiting Washington DC. My husband picked a nice steakhouse for one dinner (I call him my ‘meat-and-potatoes-guy’ for a reason). There was…

Artichoke Dip Mac and Cheese

If you’re anything like me, come spring, you think a lot about cooking artichokes. But you don’t seem to get around to actually doing it very often. Because they’re kind of complicated. They’re so much more work than, say, asparagus. If you love artichokes but lack the ambition to cook…

Welcome Spring: Creamy Parmesan Primavera Pasta

One of the first signs of spring around my household: baseball is back on tv!  I’m not the baseball fan (that would be my husband) but that nostalgic reminder of impending warm weather is always a relief. My favorite sign of spring: it’s no longer dark at 4 pm!  We…
