I know I gave you an orange mango smoothie recipe last week, but this is the best green smoothie recipe I’ve come up with and it’s the one Eric and I drink every morning, so I wanted to share it with you!
This weekend we were busy hosting brunch for my brother-in-law’s birthday and some of my recipes got real life taste-testing experience. We devoured my paleo Dutch Baby topped with strawberry chia seed jam, scrambled eggs, sweet potato breakfast potatoes and fruit. It was delicious and a wonderful time to gather with the family.
My cast iron skillet got a lot of love this week, what with my Loaded Hash Browns recipe and now this paleo Dutch Baby recipe I have been dying to share! Continue reading
This orange mango smoothie tastes like a homemade Orange Julius, but it’s dairy free! It’s pretty much sunshine in a glass. I even snuck a vegetable in!
I have always been very curious about learning how to make things from scratch. As a teenager, this was much to my mother’s chagrin. She wasn’t too fond of buying random ingredients for one recipe or another, but one time I convinced her to let me try making jam from scratch.
Don’t get me wrong—it tasted amazing. But it was SO labor intensive. I stood by the stove, stirring constantly, for what seemed. like. days. It called for pectin, and an insane amount of sugar. Needless to say I haven’t made that recipe again. Continue reading
Confession: Sometimes I eat just sweet potato fries for dinner. It sounds kind of sad, but honestly it’s one of my favorite, easy weeknight dinners! The last thing I want to do when I get home from work and I’m hangry is think about what to make for dinner. Continue reading
These. Almonds. Are. Bomb. The original recipe appeared in the October 2014 issue of Bon Appétit Magazine, and that month I made them for a party I was hosting. Everyone absolutely loved them! One guest even said he’d pay for nuts like these. Quite the compliment for a home cook!
Since they were such a hit, I decided to make them again when attending a 2015 New Year’s Eve party. Once again they were well-received, so even though I didn’t develop this recipe myself, I wanted to share how to find the recipe so you can make them too! Continue reading
Soup season is my jam! Nearly every week I make a big batch of soup or chili and Eric and I eat it for lunch all week. It’s simple, comforting and soooo delicious! Plus, during cold and flu season, I like to think a little hot broth and a dash of turmeric helps to boost my immune system!
One of my go-tos is a basic homemade vegetable soup, like the chicken noodle soup you might eat when you’re sick. It’s a perfect way to use up any vegetables or beans that might go bad soon and it’s hearty and healthy. Once I make this basic recipe, I add to it based on what I have around.
Extra lentils? Toss ’em in! Water from pasta made the night before? You bet I save that and add it to the pot! It makes for a new flavor every time, which keeps this soup exciting.
