Lemon Poppyseed Bundt Cake with Blackberry Glaze


Okay, friends. I know I haven't shared a "baked dessert" recipe yet this year - and this is supposed to be "BAKING with Blondie" hah! But as much as I love a good dessert, I want to make sure you have options to choose from. After all, we make dinner every single night, and dessert probably once a week, so if your family is like mine, you're more likely to try a dinner recipe than a dessert one anytime soon. 


However, when we make desserts, we go big and never look back. 

This week, I couldn't wait to share my new lemon poppyseed bundt cake recipe. And you guys, it's not just any other bundt, you're going to drizzle the heck out of every slice with my heavenly blackberry glaze. It's a game changer, for sure. I can't picture lemon poppyseed without it now. Let's dive in!

Easy Teriyaki Noodle Bowls

The simplest teriyaki sauce from scratch, tossed with juicy chicken, fresh stir fry veggies, and yoki-saba noodles, makes for your easiest (and tastiest) weeknight dinner yet! 


Happy Wednesday, everyone! We're already halfway through the week, and I feel like it's been taking forevvvvvver. But we're almost to the weekend (at least that's what I keep telling myself), and I have one more mouthwatering recipe to share with you tomorrow (brace yourselves for a dessert, at last!), so stay tuned! 

Today, though, we're going to get lost in these noodle bowls.

Green Smoothie Freezer Packets


If there's one thing that I know, is how to make a killer green smoothie. Almost three years ago this month, I started on the green smoothie train. I tried so, so, many recipes... and lots of them were really awesome. But none compared to this little concoction of mine. I have one of these almost every morning (especially if I've gone for a run), and it really is the best tasting green smoothie I've ever had. You can't even tell there's spinach in there. It tastes like a pina colada pineapple type smoothie instead, which is another plus. 

I don't have a lot of time in the morning to chop up fresh pineapple and bananas, and sometimes my giant spinach bag doesn't keep as well as I hope. So I've always stayed true to my little smoothie packets here. 

Friends, this isn't just any green smoothie recipe someone's throwing on the blog at the new year to keep with the "all things healthy" theme. THIS is the green smoothie I've had for years, and love the best. So you're in for a real treat, I promise you!

Garlic Parmesan Spaghetti Squash

Tender spaghetti squash, roasted to perfection in the oven, and tossed with garlic, Parmesan, and topped with parsley for extra flavor. A healthy way to cut carbs completely out of the picture, without missing it for a second. 


Alright, guys. I realize that this recipe is another garlic Parmesan recipe for this week, but I couldn't go another second without posting my favorite way to eat spaghetti squash!

One-Pot Garlic Parmesan Pasta


Alrighty, friends, this recipe was one that I teased on my Instagram stories a while back.  I've had more than a few of you get back to me asking for the recipe asap! So here it is, without delay: the recipe we make on a weekly basis. Yep. Weekly. 

Why? It goes with everything, my kids inhale it, my husband loves it, I love to make it, and it's SUPER easy to make. I love to serve it alongside steamed veggies (usually broccoli) or/and grilled chicken. It comes together in a little more than the time it takes to boil the noodles. 

And the fact that it only takes one pot to make doesn't hurt, too, eh? 

Intrigued? Let's dive in!
