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

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

Healthy Chocolate Hazelnut Pudding

We've been making this pudding for years, and it never ceases to please whenever I make it for company. It's easy to throw together in the food processor, and it can be made ahead as well for the ultimate convenience. I've even made it meal prep style and portioned it out in the small 1/4 cup sized mason jars for ... Read More

Death by Chocolate

My recipe for Death by Chocolate comes from my husband's family, and it truly lives up to it's name. I've taken the liberty to change the recipe around to make for a healthier chocolate indulgence. Strangely enough, my healthier version turned out even more rich and decadent than the original. This is mostly because my chocolate cake recipe is a ... Read More

Slow Cooker Apple Pie Filling

This recipe started off as the vaguest of ideas. I was actually procrastinating the task at hand and thinking about food, (what else is new?) when I had this thought, 'wouldn't it be nice if the whole house could smell like apple pie, without actually making apple pie'. That was really all it took to spark an idea, and from ... Read More
