Creamy Coconut Lime Chia Pudding

This coconut lime combination has become one of our favorites. It's one of those combinations you don't expect to fall head over heels for when you're a 'dyed in the wool' chocoholic, but what can you do!?! It all started with my Coconut Lime Ice Cream which has become Tyler's most requested dessert. And from there I started using the ...

Rainbow Spring Rolls with Sweet Chili Mango Sauce

It might still be pretty cold around here, winter temperature are hanging on with hail one minute, and pouring rain the next. But the grass is slowly turning green, the trees are budding, and I'm in full force Spring mode! I'm so predictable because I do this every year, I jump in full speed ahead into all the nice new ...

Carrot Cake Energy Bites

Who doesn't need all the comforting flavors of carrot cake wrapped up into a healthy snack!?! It's clearly no secret around here that we love energy bites. They're so easy to make, and they're absolutely invaluable for keeping me on track for healthy eating. It seems like more often than not I'm in need of a quick snack, and these ...

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! ...
