Carrot Potato Soup

Nothing is more comforting to me on a chilly day than a warm cup of creamy soup and a crusty piece of bread. This simple, healthy soup is made with carrots, potato, onion, garlic, some seasonings and chicken broth. Once cooked, the soup is puréed in the Magic Bullet blender to create a creamy texture. I like to top this soup with a dollop of sour cream to finish it off just before serving. Carrot Potato Soup Ingredients 1 onion, […]

Dare I say this, but I don’t think I will ever make French toast any other way, than this way. I know it’s crazy, but this dish was SO good, my whole family went nuts for it! We are big banana bread people in my house, and I usually bake a batch every week. I get excited when my bananas start to brown because that can only mean one thing! But  a loaf of banana bread can take almost an […]

Beet Hummus

If you like hummus, you are going to love this beet hummus recipe. Beets are a great source of vitamin C and many vitamins and minerals, making them a healthy addition to your basic hummus recipe. Surprisingly, the garlic and tahini overpower the beet flavor, so you don’t taste them much if you are worried about a strong beet flavor in this hummus recipe. Serve this beet hummus dip with crackers or vegetables for a snack or appetizer. The beets […]

Old Bread Dumplings

We have all heard of using stale bread for croutons, but here is another recipe that uses stale bread as the main ingredient! These dumplings are great in soup, but also can be eaten alone. Stale bread is ground down to crumbs using a Magic Bullet blender, and then mixed with egg, milk, flour, bacon, onion, and herbs to form dumplings. They are then boiled in broth until cooked.     Old Bread Dumplings Ingredients 2 cups stale bread, broken […]

Grain-Free Red Velvet Muffins

February. Valentines Day. Red. Red velvet. The most decadent, sweet and rich dessert anyone could lay their tastebuds on. Add some cream cheese frosting and you’ve got yourself wanting more. But, knowing me, I have to come up with a nutritious delicious alternative to enjoy while feeling like I’m treating myself. Almond flour is my go-to when baking because it’s full of protein and healthy fats, so it fills you up and keeps you satisfied rather than a sugary, carb-filled […]

Easy Potato Flatbread

What is the best way to use leftover mashed potatoes? I would argue for these easy potato flatbreads! They go great with dips, or you can use them for wrapping fresh vegetables and sauce. You will need a cast iron skillet to cook the flat bread once it is rolled out. I like these potato flatbreads plain, but you could also add fresh herbs, garlic, etc. For this recipe, I start from preparing the mashed potatoes. If you already have […]
