Mango Lime Chia Pudding

Chia puddings have to be the easiest make-ahead breakfast ever! Simply throw a few ingredients in the blender, pour the pudding into jars, and top with your favorite fresh fruit - and wha-la healthy breakfasts all week long! My new favorite way of making chia puddings is to add fresh or frozen fruit right into the pudding for more fresh ...

Mount Washburn in Yellowstone National Park

The hike up Mount Washburn in Yellowstone National Park will take you up to the lofty elevation of 10,223 feet! A wide, well maintained trail leads to the top with expansive views in all directions. We hiked this trail after a full day visiting most of the geyser trails, and it was the perfect way to take a break from ...

Citrus Spinach Salad with Feta Cheese

You know that point you reach every winter where spring with all it's fresh produce seems so far away, and you're just craving something fresh!?!

It was so good ...

Rosemary Chicken Ragu with Butternut Noodles

Butternut noodles are a surprising thing - somehow the spiralizer totally changes the texture of butternut squash, leaving behind some of the squashy-ness and transcending into wonderfully sweet noodles!

We sometimes make a whole meal out of it by adding lots of veggies to the platter with gluten free crackers to pair with the cheese. If you're looking for a fool-proof recipe for a special occasion, look no ...

Chocolate Mousse Brownies

Chocolate and Raspberry is my husband's favorite dessert combination - so it's no surprise this recipe is dedicated to him! I had it all dreamed up for his birthday a month ago, but before I told him what I had in mind, he requested my Chocolate Tart. So I figured the Chocolate Mousse Brownies could wait for February when there's ...

Make Your Own Freezer Smoothie Packs

With every year that goes by, I'm becoming a bigger fan of having things prepared ahead! I've been delving into all areas of making things easier in the kitchen, from slow cooker recipes to mason jar salads - and now on to smoothie packs for the freezer! We have a pretty good routine for Monday - Thursday every week (my ...

Bacon Kale Caesar Salad

We're pretty big into Caesar Salad around here, in fact, it's one of the only things that we eat on a regular basis! It's also our favorite date-night recipe to make because it's so easy, and we never get tired of it! After you make a recipe with someone many times, it starts to become easy enough to do in ...
