Chocolate Chip Coffee Cake

Coffee Cake

For the last 7 years my husband has been telling me that his favorite cake is coffee cake and for the first time this week I realized that in 7 years I have never actually seen him eat it. So obviously I decided that this needed to change and I started researching recipes immediately. First things first, this recipe isn’t healthy, nor is it vegan or gluten free but it is delicious, like really delicious.

It can be made in advance and it will hold up very in a sealed container. It’s also really good when heated up and topped with ice cream…just saying. 😉

You can find the recipe here. I added chocolate chips which aren’t in the original recipe but if you want to add them just top the cake with about 3/4 cup of chocolate chips when there is only 10 minutes left in the oven.

Enjoy kids!


The Best Sweet Potato Fries Ever

Sweet Potato Fries 2

Sweet potato fries are a weekly must have around my apartment and after many years of making them, we’d like to think we have perfected the recipe. 🙂

They are simple to put together and have a sweet yet savory taste that is amazing.

Plus they only take 25 minutes to cook, which is double amazing.

*Feel free to cut them thinner if that’s your preference but make sure to flip them about every 7 minutes to keep them from becoming burnt if you do.

The Best Sweet Potato Fries Ever

  • 3 large sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced thick
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

Preheat oven to 410 degrees and line 2 baking sheets with aluminum foil.

In a medium size bowl, toss the sweet potatoes and coconut oil together.

Then add the garlic powder, salt and pepper and toss well to coat each fry.

Place fries on baking sheets making sure to leave space between each one so that they have room to become crispy.

Cook sweet potatoes for 25 minutes, flip the fries at minute 10 and at minute 20 flip them again and also sprinkle them with the oregano, allowing them to cook the last 5 minutes with the oregano flavor.
