Healthier One Bowl Banana Bread

My mom’s banana bread recipe was one of the first recipe cards I took with me after moving away from home. It’s a timeless, classic comfort food – one that’s reserved for those rough days, or when you want the smell of baked bananas to permeate your entire home or …

Chipotle Black Bean Breakfast Taco

I interrupt this moment of your day to bring you Tex-Mex breakfast tacos all dolled up with chipotle black beans, sautéed onion and bell pepper, skillet-fried egg, avocado slices and cilantro. Oh, and let’s not forget the fresh salsa. This, my friends, is one happy breakfast taco. 

5-Ingredient Zucchini Blueberry Low Sugar Smoothie

The low sugar craze is in full force right now and I am loving it! As a child of the 90’s, when fat was shunned and sugar was disregarded, sugar was a major part of my diet. Sweet tea, sodas, ice cream, cakes, boxed cereal, doughnuts…I ate it all. And the more …

Whole Grain Blueberry Ricotta Pancakes

We’ve got some serious pancake love happening over here. Blueberry ricotta pancakes, to be exact. I’ve been intrigued for quite some time by the idea of adding ricotta cheese to pancake batter and let me tell ya, it is WORTH it! The addition of ricotta makes pancakes more moist, fluffy, and creamy. And …

Lemon Raspberry Healthy Cheesecake Cups with Cashew Crust Topping

I got really lucky marrying my husband. There are many reasons why, but in this post it relates to dessert. My husband does not have a big sweet tooth AT ALL. In fact, when I make sweets I have to beg him to help me finish it off because I’m too stubborn to throw …

10 Minute Cashew Coconut Stovetop Granola

As I was rummaging around the health foods section at my local Kroger, a package of cashew coconut granola caught my attention. Then, seemingly in slow motion as I was placing the package in my cart, I thought to myself, “I can totally make this at home.” So here we are. This Cashew …

Super Healthy Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Breakfast Dilemmas Growing up, good ‘ole Betty Crocker muffins were the occasional breakfast for busy school mornings. Laden with sugar and fat, I had no problem scarfing them down. However, every time I got to school you would think I had skipped breakfast that morning. My stomach growled uncontrollably and school work was the …

Glow Green Smoothie

It’s green smoothie time! Most of you probably don’t know this, but I posted this green smoothie recipe one year ago when I first started blogging (read: had no clue what I was doing). And every time I looked at this post, I cringed at the pictures. They just did not …

Pumpkin Spice Apple Steel Cut Oats (V/GF)

Mornings that include steel cut oats are the best mornings because they are slow mornings. I know I’ve said it here before, but I am no longer a morning person since becoming a mom. Knowing I have to change a diaper, pick out clothes for myself and another little human, feed us, …

Holiday Harvest Granola (V/GF)

When the first cold front drifts through and Fall sets in each year, I automatically retreat to hot beverages and warm spices. It’s like there’s this threshold inside me where, once cooler temperatures have commenced, my mind is consumed with cinnamon, ginger, orange, chai-spiced chamomile tea, apple cider, pumpkin spice lattes, and other foods …
