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 […]

Strawberry Chia Seed Blender Pudding

Healthy Blondies

Are you asking yourself why these blondies are called “healthy”? The secret ingredient is garbanzo beans! This may sound strange, but you can’t taste the actual beans in these blondies. They still have a little butter, sugar, eggs, and flour, but less of the bad stuff. The beans give them a moist, chewy consistency while the other ingredients mask the taste. Adding beans and blending them into the blondie batter is a great way to add fiber and protein to […]

Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Salsa doesn’t last long in our household. We usually have a handful of jars of homemade salsa in our fridge and 15 opened bags of tortilla chips in the pantry. We are slightly obsessed.

Paired with cilantro and roasted jalapeños, you might find this recipe to be your new go to! Roasted Tomatillo Salsa Recipe Ingredients: 1 pound husked tomatillos 1 […]

Creamy Mushroom Sauce

In my opinion, every cook needs to know how to make a basic, yet delicious, creamy mushroom sauce. So here you go! I like to used organic cremini mushrooms and find they give the sauce a great flavor. In addition to the mushrooms, you will need heavy cream, milk, thyme, and garlic. After sautéing the mushrooms and allowing them to simmer in cream for a few minutes, I like to transfer half of the mixture to a Magic Bullet cup […]

Brown Butter Spiced Banana Bread

I feel like every time my bananas turn brown, I create a new banana bread recipe with different variations. I wanted to try something different besides my typical chocolate chip banana bread. So, I browned some butter which gave the bread a hint of caramel flavor and then added one of my favorite spices. It’s almost like a little piece of the Fall Season in one recipe!
