S’more Bars

Cream Cheese, Carrot, and Cucumber Spread

My mom used to make this for me as a kid all the time, and then she would spread it onto a sandwich and cut in into tiny squares. It always reminded me of tea party food, and I loved it.

Cream Cheese, Carrot, and Cucumber Spread Ingredients 1 block of cream cheese softened 1 large carrot, […]

Chocolate Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls are one of my favorite treats! It’s my own version of build your own ‘fro-yo’, because I can add whatever topping I would like to a creamier/healthier ice cream base. I usually always go with chocolate :). Feel free to adjust the flavors and toppings accordingly! One topping I used were cocoa nibs, which is an all natural form of pure cocoa, but I would definitely be ok with chocolate chips as well! Chocolate Smoothie Bowl Ingredients 1/2 […]

Creamy Leek and Potato Pesto Soup

Soup is always a hit or miss with my kids. If there are vegetables or green stuff in their soup chances are it’s a no for them. No matter how many cheesy grilled cheese sandwiches I make as a side… they still aren’t having it. Then it hit me one night when they scarfed down their mashed potatoes that I’ve never tried making them potato soup. Liquid mashed potatoes! To be honest, I don’t love potato soup, I would much […]
