I was combing through all my old recipes a few days ago,and in the piles of handwritten scrap papers and magazine cut outs, I found a piece of torn notebook paper with driving directions scribbled on it. Wherever the directions led was pretty far on the opposite side of Denver from me, so it took […]
Because so much of Easter is about candy these days, most of us with multiple kids are left with bowls and baskets of chocolate goodies that last us until Halloween. This year, why not take that leftover candy and make a delicious dessert out of it?! These brownies use up any leftover chocolate bits you […]
Today I’m sharing a recipe from my friend and fellow Colorado blogger, Catherine of Evolving Motherhood. I met Catherine this past fall in a cab on the way to a blog conference, and it turned out we were on the same flight and didn’t even realize it! Catherine shares my passion for clean, healthy eating […]
I’m told that when I was a real little kid, I loved Brussels sprouts. But only the way that my great-aunt made them which involved frying them in vast amounts of bacon fat. Turns out, she was way ahead of her time, because that’s a thing now. Gone are the days of boiled-till-they’re-gray, mushy, bitter, blah […]
Ah, Summer is on its way! It’s staying light out later and gradually getting warmer…enticing us to linger outside on our deck or around our fire pit. Nights like that call for a tasty dessert, highlighting the spring and summer bounty of fresh fruit. With our south-west facing home, the kitchen gets mighty hot by […]
Cheese and crackers are an easy, satisfying snack anytime of day and for any occasion. They can be casual for after-school munching, or gussied up for a party. But do you pay much mind to what type of crackers you serve? I never did before, but I am going to start. Because crackers matter! Recently, […]
My youngest loves lunch meat but since he’s gluten-free, he usually ends up just eating the meat. I’ve tried to get him to eat sandwiches, but failed every time. Until now. Oscar Mayer sent us a great sandwich kit and some of their new Deli Fresh BOLD flavor varieties. I was inspired and ready to take on […]
Easter is just a few days away, and I’ve been charged with bringing the dessert for our family’s celebration. Nothing says “Spring” to me, more than the bright, tart flavor of lemon. This cake is one of my family’s favorites: I get requests for it year round but especially in Spring and Summer. It’s very […]
Even though I don’t keep to the Lenten tradition of eating fish on Fridays anymore, I definitely enjoy the sales on seafood this time of year! I’m stocking up on individually frozen and wrapped fillets because it’s so easy to pull out exactly what I need from the freezer, thaw it quickly in a bowl […]
We’re normally year-round grillers, but with the high winds and bitter cold lately, we’ve held off for a few months. So this sunny, mild weather made me want to clear the cobwebs out of the grill and fire it up! One of my favorite things to grill is chicken drumsticks. They’re cheap, fairly quick to […]
My kids and I love smoothies. I do have to admit, it’s quite the process to get them all together for just a quick smoothie for breakfast or as a treat after dinner. I was buying some pre-made smoothies but the cost was killing my pocketbook. At roughly $3 per smoothie, they were fast becoming an expensive treat.
I found a great tip on Pinterest about freezing yogurt into ice cube trays for toddler portions. Genius! Then my mind started working… All that’s in the pricey smoothie bag is frozen yogurt and fruit. Hmmmm… Then, this morning as I was starving and trying to come up with a way to pack in a ton of fruit while still minding my Weight Watchers PointsPlus® points, this recipe was born.
