Pina Colada Green Smoothie

I have a history of coming up with a new green smoothie recipe, and then I drink it on repeat for months on end! The only thing I do try and vary is the type of greens I use in my smoothie. This way you don't overdose on one particular green, and you rotate through the different nutrients. Last winter ... Read More

Cranberry Orange Shortbread Streusel Bars

I had a request for these earlier this year, but since it was March and I was heading into spring recipes, I had to make a note of it for later. Luckily it's finally cranberry season so I can make this idea a reality. Cranberry orange is such a great combination, and turning it into streusel bars is the best ... Read More

Easy Breakfast Potatoes O’Brien

I never even knew about Potatoes O'Brien until I tried them at my mother-in-law's house. I was crazy about the flavors from the first bite. I've often made my breakfast potatoes with green onions added in. But there's just something extra good about the flavor the bell pepper adds. Traditionally there's both red and green bell peppers in these breakfast ... Read More

Honey Mustard Chicken Apple Skillet Dinner

When you have a bounty of apples, they start appearing in all sorts of things! I've been overrun this fall with McIntosh and Sweet Sixteens from my mom's apple trees. And I have to say, it's been a great problem to have. First up I redid my Crockpot Applesauce. Then I developed this super easy skillet dinner, and still to ... Read More

Crockpot Applesauce

Ever since I started making applesauce in the crockpot, I've never looked back. It's so easy to put together, and it cooks while I sleep! Waking up to fresh applesauce for breakfast is also totally great. The whole house smells amazing, and applesauce tastes so good warm or even hot, (which was a new concept for me). If you've never ... Read More

Roasted Butternut Salad with Pomegranates and Creamy Curry Dressing

Where do I even start in telling you about this salad? The obvious is that I absolutely love it, but that really doesn't seem like a very great description. But something I feel is actually significant, is we've been eating this salad 3-4 times a week for a few weeks now. We rarely eat the same thing over and over ... Read More

Roasted Poblano Breakfast Tacos

These breakfast tacos were inspired by one of our last Farmer's Market a couple weeks ago. I follow one of our local farmers on Instagram, and I saw they were having a stock up sale. To make the deal even more irresistible, there was going to be a chile roaster there! I knew this was something I couldn't miss. And ... Read More

Easy Blender Fire Roasted Salsa

There's a local Mexican restaurant we've been going to for more years than I can remember, and they have the best salsa. I've always wondered what makes it so rich in flavor, but I'd never really attempted to figure it out before. I've always made a blender salsa year round when tomatoes aren't in season with fire roasted canned tomatoes. ... Read More

Grain Free Glazed Cinnamon Apple Streusel Muffins

These apple muffins are inspired by a memory of muffins I used to make back in the days of white flour and sugar. They were chock full of apple chunks, and had the perfect amount of cinnamon in them. Needless to say, they were pretty much my favorite way to welcome in the fall season. So many years have passed ... Read More
