Molasses Ginger Cookie Energy Bites

My favorite cookie of all time is my Grandpa's Molasses Ginger Cookies which I made into a gluten free version last year. They're highly addictive, and so good that I don't make them too often because I lack a little thing called 'willpower'! So I thought it might be fun to take the same flavors of this classic cookie, and ...

Gooey Cranberry Orange Skillet Cookie

It's the perfect time of year for all things gooey and decadent. I've been testing out lots of deliciously sweet things lately, and my friends and family are loving the recipe testing right now! The recipe for this Gooey Cranberry Orange Skillet Cookie started off with white chocolate chunks. But after doing some testing, I found that chocolate chips were preferred ...

Apple Pie Skillet Cake

This time of year is perfection with the last of of season ripe tomatoes, and the fall fruit in full swing! I like having vine-ripened tomatoes and apples in the same week - it gives you the sense of having your cake and eating it too. (Although I'll have to say, I'm definitely hoarding the last of my garden tomatoes.) And...speaking ...

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 ...

Creamy Spaghetti Squash Florentine

The word Florentine pretty much just means some kind of dish with lots of creamy spinach in it. Everybody has a different way of making the classics, but for me it all started with an Eggs Florentine dish that I've made so often I can make it in my sleep. First there's a bed of spinach with a creamy bechamel, ...

Pineapple Orange Banana Green Smoothie

It's been a little while since I've come up with a green smoothie recipe. So long in fact that I went back into the archives to see, and it turns out that the last time I posted a green smoothie was in February of this year! Of course there's always a reason behind everything, and in this case there's several. ...

Samosa Style Twice Baked Potatoes

I've had the idea for this recipe floating around in my head for a little while now, but somehow I've just never gotten around to making it. That's probably because Indian cuisine isn't exactly my forte by any means. I absolutely love every Indian dish I've ever tried, but apart from Butter Chicken, I rarely make it at home. Most ...

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 ...

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 ...
