Pumpkin Pie Energy Bites

Energy bites are one of my favorite things to have around because they're awesome as a snack on a mountain top in Glacier National Park. Or they're equally good in the car on the way from one appointment to another when I just don't think I can make it until dinner time. On one of my recent grocery trips, I ...

Slow Cooker Spiced Pear Sauce

Ever since I found out you could make applesauce in a slow cooker, I haven't looked back. Not that it takes very long on the stove top, but it does require attention and stirring. Not so with the convenient slow cooker, you just have to put everything in and it does all the work. I usually put a batch in ...

Grilled Sweet Peppers Stuffed with Herbed Goat Cheese

Goat cheese paired with veggies is a summer tradition for my sister and I. I think it started with homegrown Brandywine tomatoes (where we made a Caprese Salad of sorts), and the combination was so good, it just sort of spiralled from there! Mini sweet peppers turn even sweeter when you put them on the grill, and they make the ...

Caramelized Coconut Chips

I've never been much of a snacker until recently. Even when I was a kid and had a voracious appetite I never really snacked, instead I ate meals in between my meals, (seriously I don't know how my parents were able to afford groceries for me)! These days with my appetite down to a tiny fraction of what it used ...

Sweet Potato Pizza Bites

A picture truly says a 1,000 words - I mean what could I tell you that the glistening pepperoni hasn't already whispered in your ear!?! Yep... that's it... it's final - we're having pizza bites for dinner! There's no need to make a real meal when you can have nibbling snacks instead! One of my favorite things about these is ...

Fruit and Yogurt Cups with Granola

These fruit and yogurt cups have been a real lifesaver lately! They are so easy to make, and I love the convenience of having pre-made breakfasts all ready-to-go in the fridge. Picture creamy Greek Yogurt, topped with a homemade Triple Berry Sauce, with a sprinkling of Maple Cinnamon Granola and you'll see why I just can't get enough of these! ...

Ginger Pear Green Smoothie

We drink green smoothies pretty much every day - but even so, I tend to stick with a couple of my favorite recipes! So... lately I've been working on branching out a bit. I find it can be extra hard to try new combinations when it comes to green smoothies because I've really bombed it on a few occasions! I ...

How to Make an Easy Antipasto Platter

An Antipasto Platter is truly the easiest appetizer, and it's perfect for entertaining because it can be assembled ahead of time! 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 ...

Sweet Cherry Almond Chia Pudding

It seems there's a story behind every recipe - for instance, last week's Paleo Power Breakfast developed out of a need for a power breakfast (go figure)! A friend and I were going snowshoeing in Glacier National Park and we were debating what to make for breakfast - it had to be sustaining but not the kind of 'power breakfast' ...
