Almond Butter Cookies

I will be the first to admit that peanut butter cookies are the bees knees.  What is it about the flavor of peanut butter that makes it so tasty?  I don’t have the answer but I do know that peanut butter will always be my favorite nut butter. But, wait!  Because that is not why we’re here today.  No, today we’re here to show some love to peanut butter’s sister – almond butter.     Before we dive into this recipe, you may (or may not) have noticed that it’s been a while since you’ve received a new recipe for me.  Sometimes I look back upon... read more

Vanilla Cake Donuts

Hello, my friends!  It’s a Tuesday morning and I’ve got donuts on the menu … because, let’s be honest, Tuesdays need donuts.     Oh, did I forget to mention that they’re Vanilla Cake Donuts 2 ways?  Hey! Hey! Hey! You know, sometimes I really wish that you could hear the way things are said in my head.  Mostly it’s weird voices, drawn out words, or movie quotes … but I feel there’s something lost in translation with just the use of bold and italics, ya know?     Great things about these donuts include: Gluten free!!  Only... read more

Peanut Butter Pancakes

I think it’s safe to say I am on a breakfast kick.  I’m going to blame it on the fact that I am officially back to school, which means that my fancy summer breakfasts are a thing of the past.  Back to routine.  Back to smoothies and juices.  Back to quick and easy.     No, these will not be a school day breakfast for me, but that doesn’t mean they are difficult to throw together.  Maybe for someone a bit more ambitious than I am, this could be their new go-to breakfast.  Yes?  No? But, whether these pancakes make a regular appearance at your breakfast table or not... read more

Sweet Potato Nest with Crispy Pancetta, Apple & Egg

Ahhhh breakfast foods … how I love thee. I’ll eat you in the morning, I’ll eat you in the evening, I’ll eat you … baaaasically anytime.     Growing up we used to have breakfast for dinner ALL. THE. TIME.  Brinner for my fellow Scrubs fans.  😉  My dad makes a mean french toast – it’s all about the bread –  paired with some sausage links, it was a real winning combination that I loved eating on a regular basis! Now brinner doesn’t happen as often these days and when it does, it’s never a “soggy bread product.”... read more

Chickpea Salad

Garbanzo beans.  Gram.  Bengal gram.  Egyptian pea.  Ceci.  Chana.  Kabuli chana.  Chickpeas. Did you have any idea that this little legume had so many names?  Yeah, me either.  What I do know, however, is that they are quite delicious and pack a hefty nutritional punch.     Chickpeas, though small, are mighty.  Just half a cup boasts 20% of your daily protein, fiber, folate, iron and  phosphorus.  And offer a substantial amount of thiamin, vitamin B6, magnesium and zinc. But wait, because the good news doesn’t stop there.  Chickpeas taste great on their own – I... read more

Peach Ice Cream

Fresh. Peach. Ice. Cream … to be exact.  🙂 🙂 🙂     I feel as though I have typed these exact words a few times already this summer but here in NYC we are in the midst of a crazy, uncomfortable, high humidity, horrible hair day, why did I even shower today type of heat wave.  It’s bad.  Real bad. Nate and I usually enjoy a good morning walk in the park during the weekends and when we woke up at 7:00 on Saturday, it was already 82° with 80% humidity.  Are you kidding me here?! It’s pretty freaking unbearable.     When it’s hot like this there’s... read more

Chocolate Cake

Listen up, friends!  Today we’ve got a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting AND raspberry filling! All gluten and refined sugar free!  A cake worthy of a celebration and it just so happens, that was exactly my intent!  🙂     I made this cake specifically with my parents in mind.  You see, this past weekend they celebrated their 40th WEDDING ANNIVERSARY!!!  Pretty awesome, right?! I wish I had some fantastic 1976 wedding pictures to share with you all but the fact of the matter is not many survived … their wedding wound up being a comedy of mishaps – rain,... read more

Mango Jalapeño Margaritas

Today is a first for The Sugar Habit … a first that I am very excited to share with you!     I have never created my own adult beverage so I didn’t have very high hopes.  Whomp.  Whomp. Good news, though!  These margaritas are a home run!  And I’m not just saying that cause, you know, I made them.  They are naturally sweet, a wee bit spicy, creamy and cool. See, a home run!     So, there is this bar in our neighborhood that specializes in fancified cocktails.  One of them is called the ‘Silver Tongued Devil,’ which features jalapeño infused... read more
