Glacier National Park in the Holidays 2014

It's kind of becoming a tradition to write a Happy Holidays post each year from Glacier. Why Glacier you ask? Well... because it's awesome, and we try to spend several days between Christmas and New Year's snowshoeing in Glacier National Park. We love tromping through the snow with the crisp - cold air and the snow capped peaks! The holidays ...

Cranberry Orange Icebox Cookies

Have you heard of icebox cookies? Well let me tell you, they're a dangerous concept - the cookie dough chills in the fridge for up to a week, and you can slice and bake as desired (read breakfast, lunch, and dinner) - see I told you, dangerous concept! These cookies are one step easier even than icebox cookies because you ...

Chocolate Covered Holidays

Pasta is probably my ultimate comfort food, even dessert can't touch it's satisfying goodness! So... I never would have thought I'd be so crazy about zucchini noodles - I mean they're not the real thing right? Well, they're definitely not pasta but I love them in their own way. We eat them a couple times a week, and there's no ...

Roasted Veggie Bowls with Pomegranate Feta Guacamole

Roasted Veggies are one of my favorite things, and we make a full meal out of them at least once a week! This particular combination of butternut squash with caramelized red onion and bell pepper is a winter favorite that I put in marinara sauce, use a filling in omelets, and of course topped with guacamole for a simple veggie ...

Veggie Fajita Noodles

So... I'm officially addicted to zucchini noodles, and I'm putting them in everything (made minestrone with them yesterday)! I've never been the kind of person that's particularly satisfied with healthier substitutions, but over the last couple of years I've really started to love getting creative with veggies! It turns out I had a lot of misconceptions about 'healthy food' - ...
