To Make While Social Distancing
As the city continues to practice social distancing, it seems that many of us have found ourselves back in the kitchen cooking up comfort foods and baking (and eating) our feelings. You’ve probably seen photos of a few (hundred) banana breads floating around on Instagram. And although a fresh loaf of banana bread is tempting.. We’ve rounded up 8 alternative recipes by Boston Based Food Bloggers that you can indulge in while you #stayhome.
Funfetti Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes by We Are Not Martha. Pretty much everyone’s favorite kind of dessert rolled up into one sweet cupcake!
If you’re looking for something a little more balanced, try Balanced by B’s Easy Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies. They are dairy free, gluten free, filled with chocolate chips, oats, and sweetened with maple syrup.
If breakfast is more your thing, try whipping up a batch of The Best Blueberry Muffins EVER by Sarah Crawford of Broma Bakery. Think fluffy, moist blueberry muffins complete with a big, crunchy muffin top dusted with sugar.
We’re all trying harder than ever to stay healthy. Which is why an orange smoothie (likely packed with vitamin C) sounds extra delicious! Try this recipe by registered nurse, Kelsey Riley of Sprinkle of Charm.
If savory is more your speed check out The Food In My Beard’s Chorizo Sticky Buns. Dan’s instagram is also an impressive array of comfort foods – with about 10 different versions of mac n cheese, cheeseburger dan dan noodles, and loaded nacho pizza.

Brownies have also been a fan favorite of the internet in the past few weeks. Why not try something a little different! Instead of “just brownies,” try Yes Please Bake’s Flourless Tahini Brownies.
