Blackberries and coconut, in the winter? Why not! I am channeling the tropics this weekend, trying to pretend that I am lying on a beach somewhere warm rather than looking out at a cold gray city skyline. And nothing says tropical more than coconut!

I am currently obsessed with this Chobani coconut  yogurt. Have you tried it? It is so creamy and coconutty – it kind of makes me feel like I’m eating ice cream! And no, they are not paying me – I just really love this yogurt! So when I was eating some the other day, I thought why not bake this delicious flavor into something? And so I came up with this blackberry coconut bread.

Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread

A great recipe for classic Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread. This is a light and fluffy wheat bread that is still sturdy enough for a sandwich!

I love no-knead bread and quick easy bread, but when I have time on a weekend, I really enjoy making good old fashioned bread.  The kind that requires kneading, takes up lots of time, and causes a mess.  But that’s what weekends are for, right?  It had been awhile since I had baked bread, so last weekend I decided to make Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread.  I have made this recipe before, so I knew it would be a winner, and that TheBetterHalf would like it, even though it has whole wheat in there (he is a white bread kind of guy). …

I am a huge fan of pancakes.  Growing up, my dad made us pancakes almost every weekend.  I loved helping him make the pancakes – I used to sneak bites of the batter plain, which in retrospect is disgusting.  Cookie dough – yes; pancake batter – no.  TheBetterHalf is amazed that I didn’t get salmonella poisoning as a child due to my love for uncooked doughs and batters.  I tell him it is because I have a strong immune system, but really it is because my mom buys pasteurized eggs.

I came up with this recipe in an attempt to make pancakes a little bit healthier, using Greek yogurt and whole wheat flour. I can’t say these are as good as buttermilk pancakes, but they are pretty tasty! Super light and fluffy . They are very wheaty tasting – you could use half all-purpose flour if you want less of a strong wheat flavor.  If you prefer your pancakes a bit thinner, just add some more milk!  …
