Peanut Butter Banana Cream Pie

I love getting requests for recipes because more often than not, it takes me outside my comfort zone and into ideas I would've never had myself. This peanut butter banana cream pie is just such a recipe request. I often make my No-Bake Banana Cream Pie or these Deep Dish Peanut Butter Cheesecakes Brownies, (which are a spin off peanut ...

Sesame Ginger Glazed Green Beans

I developed these green beans specifically to go with my Slow Cooker Chinese 5 Spice Pulled Pork. But they're so fast and easy to make, as well as incredibly flavorful, they make a great side dish to so many Asian inspired dishes, (like my Slow Cooker Honey Lime Teriyaki Chicken). And you don't have to limit the sauce in this ... Read More

Rosemary Sea Salt Roasted Almonds

These rosemary almonds started off as just something I was making for my Easy Cheese Board Date for 2. But they quickly took on a life of their own, so I made some space in the recipe calendar, so they could be their own recipe. Part of my job as a recipe developer is to make sure everything tastes the ... Read More

Chocolate Raspberry Cream Candy Cups

This recipe was inspired by a couple of things. The first one is Tyler's love of the classic chocolate raspberry combination, and the second is peanut butter cups of all things. Of course we both love peanut butter cups, (and you can find my homemade recipe in my Inspired Ice Creams e-book). But I wanted to use their shape as ... Read More

Easy Cheese Board Date for 2

A couple weeks ago I put together a list of our 15 Easy and Affordable Date Night Ideas. One of our favorite go-to's from that list is #7 the cheese party, which can either be for 2, or also for epic entertaining. We average a cheese party date every couple of months, and it simply never gets old. They're so easy ... Read More

California Sushi Bowls with Japanese Togarashi Mayo

Over the last couple of years, I've been working on branching out with different spice combinations. And today is just one of those days - we're now having a moment with Japanese Togarashi. If you're not familiar with that spice mix, well we're in the same boat, because it's new to me as well. So what you really need to ... Read More

My Favorite Energizing Green Juice

I have a very 'on and off' relationship with juicing. I love green juice, and I really love how it makes me feel. But... I struggle to make time to actually juice. And I know I'm not alone in this because everyone I know feels the exact same way. Juicing sounds great and all, but really... it's hard to make ... Read More

Get the Glow Carrot Beet Juice

One of my 10 Intentional Habits for the New Year is to eat more veggies. There's always so much confusing diet advice being thrown around, and it's even worse at the beginning of a new year. But there's one thing everyone seems to agree on, and that's to eat more veggies. You simply can't go wrong with that formula! For ... Read More

Taco Sweet Potato Noodle Bowls

Sometimes it's fun to mix up the same flavors you're used to into a different dish altogether. We often make these Taco Sweet Potato Bowls I posted years ago, but lately I've been making this spiralized version of the same flavors. As an added bonus, it's also completely dairy free, and really easy to make. The American version of tacos ... Read More
