Homemade Almond Butter

July 19, 2013

Almond butter and I really aren’t the best of friends. I find it the most difficult to make out of all the nut butters and I also don’t particularly like its taste. I find it a bit bland and bitter. My daughter doesn’t like it either unfortunately- her loyalty lies with peanut butter and Nutella [...]

Popeye Muffins

July 16, 2013

It’s no secret that I am a big advocate for sneaking veggies to your children. Just last Friday I posted a recipe for Magic Veggie Muffins. Since that recipe (in theory) allows you to use any vegetable/fruit combination, you could probably make those spinach muffins as well. This recipe is much different though. This recipe [...]

Oatmeal Waffles

July 15, 2013

I had such a fun weekend! Not only were Dave and I super productive getting stuff done around the house, but we were also able to squeeze some fun into our Saturday : ) After going to the Farmer’s Market and doing some grocery shopping, we decided it was the perfect day to take the [...]

Magic Veggie Muffins

July 11, 2013

If you have been following my blog then you are no stranger to my love for muffins. Particularly when it comes to my daughter. They are my FAVORITE thing to bake for her. You wanna know why? Because I can be super sneaky and hide healthy things like veggies and whole-grains in them, hehehe. Unknowingly [...]

Homemade Chocolate Peanut Butter

July 9, 2013

My daughter is a 100% hardcore, chocolate addict. It’s a hard truth for me. After all, I’m the reason she goes insane if anybody even mentions the word ‘chocolate‘. For that matter she does the same thing with the words ‘cookie‘, ‘cake‘, or ‘gummi‘. Actually, you can thank Germany for that last one. For some [...]

Peachy Green Smoothie

June 28, 2013

Dave had the whole morning off yesterday. He didn’t have to go in to work until 4pm. This was a win-win for me. I was able to see him all day and spend some quality time with him while Scarlett was at kindergarten. AND because he got home way late (like 2am-late), I got the [...]

How to Make Almond Milk

June 19, 2013

Not too long ago I came into possession of a Vitamix. For months I went back and forth as to whether it was worth the expense or not, whether I would actually use it or not, or whether to bring it up to my Husband or not… haha I fully expected to get shot down by [...]

Cranberry Cherry Chicken Wrap

June 14, 2013

Ohhhh, cranberry cherry chicken wrap… where have you been all my life? I’ve always been a fan of those savory-sweet, fruit-nut, type salads. Case and point- Broccoli Salad. Love it. But this chicken wrap is a whole different beast. Thinly sliced seasoned chicken breast. Chopped sun-dried tomatoes. Dried cranberries and cherries. Chopped, toasted pecans. A [...]
