A little over a year ago I posted a recipe for breakfast cookies. I liked that recipe so much, I decided to re-create the recipe with a seasonal twist, by adding pumpkin to it. And I have to say, I’m pretty pleased with how these Pumpkin Breakfast Cookies turned out!
‘Tis the season for pumpkins, but I’m making banana bread. Not because I don’t love pumpkins, but because I had bananas and well, you know the saying, “if you’ve got brown bananas, you must make banana bread.” What? That’s not a saying? Oh well, it is in my world. And I love bananas and banana bread as well as oats and chocolate chips – so yeah, here comes Chocolate Oat Banana Bread!

You know what tastes good? Pistachios inside pancakes! That’s right! If you’re looking for a way to “up” your pancake game, it’s time you added some pistachios to your pancake batter! Don’t know how to do that? Well, that’s why I’m here! I jammed plenty of pistachio goodness into these Pistachio Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes!
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!
When life is out of control, I bake. If you follow along here on my blog, you know this about me. Baking is my meditation. So when life ordered up devastation, I turned to my oven. My old reliable friend whispered, “I know what you need, comfort in the form of baked goods.” Yes, oven, I sure did. And nothing was more comforting than warm, Applesauce Cranberry Muffins.
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.
Sometimes cake needs to happen, right? For one reason or another, I always find myself making cake. This Banana Coconut Bundt Cake has a story all it’s own. Perhaps not a riveting story, but a story nonetheless. Let me take you on a journey, a journey about how bananas and coconut became a bundt cake.
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!
Can Nachos be considered dinner? I’m here to tell you that, YES, yes they can! Sound crazy? Have I lost my mind? Well, yes and no! But I’m seriously not crazy when I tell you nachos can indeed make a nourishing meal! To prove it to you, I’m sharing my recipe for these seriously delicious Veggie Loaded Nachos!
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.
