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

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

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 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

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

Make Ahead Sausage Egg Muffins

We rely heavily on egg muffins, egg bakes, and frittatas for quick and easy breakfasts on the go. Egg muffins are great because they're already portioned for you. I like to make a muffin tin of 12 each week, and keep them in the fridge for last minute breakfasts and lunches. They're one staple that's always part of meal prepping for ... Read More

Ginger Peach Green Smoothie

I can't decide if I like this smoothie better with peaches or nectarines - they're both so good! If peaches aren't stellar in your area, I'd go with nectarines because they're more reliable than peaches for flavor. We've been lucky enough to get some good peaches this year and I've been going overboard with peach everything! I love it when ... Read More

Triple Chocolate Zucchini Bread

My mom used to make a chocolate zucchini bread when I was growing up. And while I'd never turn it down, I always secretly wanted brownies instead because they were so much fudgier. So when I set out to make a healthier version of this childhood recipe, I decided to amp up the chocolate to be truly worthy of any ... Read More

Double Chocolate Gluten Free Crepes

I can't think of a better way to start off a weekend morning! We keep things pretty simple during the workweek, but when the weekend comes, I love to step it up a bit. There's a certain indulgent feeling I crave that comes from a leisurely morning, complete with breakfast and a nice cup of coffee over hours of catching ... Read More
