Lemon Basil Fish Marinade

This lemon basil fish marinade recipe is a product of me having too much basil. Whenever I buy a basil plant, it seems to grow like crazy and I can never keep up with the amount of basil it produces. It turns out, basil is a super flavorful addition to marinades, like this fish marinade. I haven’t tried it with any other fish other than tilapia, so I don’t know how well it goes with other types of fish. Let […]

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. It’s a great twist on a sandwich, and the recipe today puts a little more grown up twist on this tea party classic. Cream Cheese, Carrot, and Cucumber Spread Ingredients 1 block of cream cheese softened 1 large carrot, […]

Spiced Sweet Potato Bread

This nutty, spiced sweet potato bread pairs nicely with a warm cup of tea or coffee and whipped honey butter. It is best warm right from the oven after cooling about 15 minutes.

When ready to consume, thaw overnight or bake in the oven for 15 minutes at 350 F. This recipe makes one large loaf, […]

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

My girls love anything ‘pink’ so when I was making this chia pudding they kept asking for it to be ‘pink’. Thank goodness for red ripe strawberries, because this its their new favorite treat! Plus blending it smooths out the chia seeds so it’s not a weird texture for the kids! Strawberry Chia Seed Blender Pudding Ingredients 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk 4 tb. chia seeds 4 large strawberries 4 pitted dates 1 tb. pure maple syrup 1/2 tsp. vanilla […]

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 […]

Carrot Turmeric Yogurt Dip

The other day I was at the grocery store looking for dips, and they all seemed so unhealthy. Many dips have MSG and other ingredients that are not good for you. When I got home, I decided to make my own with my Magic Bullet! This carrot, turmeric yogurt dip is packed with flavor and great for dipping vegetables. Carrot Turmeric Yogurt Dip Ingredients 1 large carrot, peeled and chopped 1 clove garlic, chopped 1 tbsp coconut oil 1 tsp […]

After School Coconut Milkshake

Smoothies are probably one of my girls favorite after school snacks. I love it because I can make all three of their snacks all at once, instead of dirtying a bunch of dishes. I also love that there is usually some left over for mama to have a snack too! After School Coconut Milkshake Ingredients 1/2 cup full fat coconut milk from a can 4 tb. coconut flavored  greek yogurt 1 tsp. vanilla 2 tb. shredded coconut 1 frozen banana […]
