A few weeks ago I made these Strawberry Basil Muffins. And I mentioned in that post a Strawberry Basil Oatmeal Bowl that my husband and I had become obsessed with. This is that. And it. is. fabulous. Before I go on about my undying love for this healthy and delicious breakfast dish, let's break it down so you know exactly what I'm talking about here... First, the ingredients we're working with are: steel cut oats, quinoa, vanilla Greek yogurt (there's no Greek yogurt tang, so have no … [Continue reading...]

Ok, guys. We need to talk. Before I get into these amazing and delicious from-scratch cupcakes and frosting that taste WAY better than the store-bought version... we need to discuss yesterday's Grape Salad incident. I can always tell when you guys aren't very impressed with a recipe I post. Because when you do like something, you're awesome about telling me via Pinterest and Instagram. And last night, I barely got crickets after the Grape Salad posted. I have to tell you: you're making … [Continue reading...]

After my husband’s graduation in May, we had a celebratory BBQ with some of our close friends from the school and our families. Aside from the high of seeing my husband receiving his diploma, there are two things I don’t think I will ever forget about that BBQ: 1) It was so hot, I thought […]

Vanilla Bean Buttercream

Vanilla Cream Buttercream | www.somethingswanky.com

This is my very favorite buttercream frosting! It’s perfect for crumbing and frosting cakes, piping on cupcakes, and just general spoon-licking. I like to use vanilla paste, because it’s just so easy! But you could also split a vanilla bean and scrape out the insides… you know, if you’re the over achieving type. And on […]

Stracciatella Yogurt Bowl

Stracciatella Yogurt Bowl | www.somethingswanky.com

I’m a chocolate chip ice cream kind of gal (I’ll ALWAYS choose plain chocolate chip if it’s an option), so stracciatella seriously speaks to my chocolate-chip-lovin’ soul. Stracciatella is basically chocolate chip gelat0. But it’s way better. Because the chocolate isn’t actually in “chip” form. Instead, the chocolate works its way through the gelato in […]
