Do you ever get tired of the same old snack mix that gets set out at parties? I know I do. Give me something with a balance of salty and sweet, please. Is That kind of snack is hard to come by. Or is it? This Holiday Snack Mix might save your next party!
Does that exclamation sound familiar? It sure does to me. When I pick up my little sous chef from school, I’m always met with those two words. Luckily, we both love a delicious, nourishing snack. And the effort in making that nourishing snack is worth it, because snacking can be a great way for your kids to get more nutrition while keeping them happy and satisfied until their next meal. Today I’ve partnered with Simple Mills for this post all about making snack time meaningful and I’m sharing a recipe for my Avocado Watermelon Cracker Snackers.
There’s a whole lot of German ancestry in me, so by default, I must love sauerkraut. And luckily, I do…now. But when I was little, I just could not figure out why my mom loved it so much! Why, oh why, did it have to show up on my hotdog? Ugh! But, with age, comes wisdom, and now I see how that fermented cabbage is such a beloved food. But I know seeing outside it’s traditional use as a “sausage topping” is hard, so I’m here to shed light on what to do with all of that kraut! So catch my ideas below along with a recipe for these yummy Sauerkraut Turkey Burgers!
Who doesn’t like a change of pace? While I love simplicity, I also appreciate mixing things up a little. For example, I love popcorn in it’s most purest form. I could eat it every day. But, sometimes it’s fun to put a twist on classics. If you’re looking for that same fun twist, than you’ll love this 2 Ingredient Strawberry Popcorn!
Are you tired of Brussels sprouts yet? Too bad. You have to hang in for at least just one more recipe. And please, oh please, let it be this one! Crispy, shaved Brussels sprouts are delicious and make for a pretty amazing salad! And when you pair them with a bright, tangy dressing, feta cheese and almonds, well, you’ll just fall in love with Brussels sprouts all over again!
I love veggie burgers, don’t you? I love making my own even more, but not at the expense of time. That’s why when I see fancy veggie burger recipes with millions of ingredients I cringe. While the effort will likely be well worth it, I just don’t know that I want to spend so much time measuring, chopping and cooking all of that stuff. That’s why I love my bean burgers! They’re delicious and won’t take you half a day to make!

Remember when smoothies were simple? You could order one or make one with strawberries, banana, yogurt and maybe some spinach. That was a special time. While you know I love simplicity, I also LOVE the challenge of trying new food combinations. Enter my Vanilla Matcha Carrot Smoothie.
