Chunky Monkey Smoothie Bowls

You want to know the secret for really beautiful smoothie bowls? The answer is so simple - just be messy! I don't know why I've always tried to arrange perfect rows or fruit, or make the toppings look just right, (maybe it's all those pretty pictures on Instagram or something). But these smoothie bowls are the first ones I haven't ...

Navajo and Queen’s Garden Loop Trail

The Navajo and Queen's Garden Loop Trail was one of our favorites from Bryce Canyon National Park. Ok... who am I kidding, we loved all the hikes we did in Bryce, but I really think this hike packs in a little extra scenery! I would recommend starting down into the canyon at the Navajo Trailhead starting at Sunset Point so ...

Chipotle Chicken Taco Bowls

This recipe is my follow-up to last week's Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken. While you can definitely use that chipotle chicken in any Mexican dish you love, I thought I'd give you the recipe for what we've been eating several times a week, for weeks on end. We both love taco bowls and obviously we eat them quite often, but we ...

Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken

Mexican food always sounds good to me, and I particularly love the flavor of smoky chipotle added into as many dishes as possible. It's one of those flavors that simply never gets old. And maybe that's because it's so multidimensional, being simultaneously smoky/spicy/earthy/with a hint of sweetness hanging out there in the background. For a while I was pretty content ...

Pumpkin Spice Streusel Muffins

Sunshine on crisp mornings are one of my favorite things about fall. The temperatures drop, the leaves start turning color, and I turn my oven on again after a summer of grilling pretty much everything. I love the smell of cinnamon wafting through the house when these muffins are in the oven. And there's nothing like pumpkin and spice that ...

No Bake Banana Cream Pie

This morning started off just like any other regular work day in the country. We got up in the dark, made scrambled eggs and coffee before my husband headed off to work just before sunrise. However this morning he got a serious surprise on the way out to his truck. I had just locked the door behind him and headed ...

Devil’s Thumb Scramble in Banff National Park

The Devil's Thumb Scramble starts from the popular hike to the beehive above the Lake Agnes Teahouse in Banff National Park. There are several phenomenal hikes you can do in this area, and all of them offer great views. The first time we spent some time in Banff we did both the Plain of Six Glaciers Teahouse and the Lake ...

Chicken Enchilada Zucchini Skillet Dinner

From the first bite of this dish, I knew it was going to go into the regular rotation. While I love every recipe I've ever posted here, I definitely have my favorites, and they tend to be the easiest weeknight dinners. This enchilada skillet dinner has a lot going on it it's favor, from the comfort food aspect right down to ...

Peanut Butter and Jelly Protein Smoothie

This is my new favorite breakfast on the go! It's packed with protein (15g per serving), really quick to make, and can be made year round with either fresh or frozen berries. It doesn't hurt that there's peanut butter in there either, which makes everything so tasty. To be technically accurate, it's actually peanut butter powder which is really high in ...
