I have never understood how people could have smoothies as a meal. To me, they’ve always been a snack; maybe a part of breakfast –but not the whole thing. But I do appreciate how many awesome, nutritious foods you can pack into a smoothie, so I’ve been trying to turn over a new leaf.  Read More »


BBQ BLT Pizza

July has certainly cranked up the heat, which makes it less than appealing to create oven-like temperatures in my kitchen for our weekly dinner tradition, pizza Friday. If you’ve ever made pizza at home, you know that the oven has to be set well into the upper 400°’s to achieve a crispy crust.

Double Chocolate Whole Wheat Zucchini Brownies

Cherry-Lime Coconut Flour Muffins

Often times, after we’ve spent the day at the swimming pool, my kids ask to stop by Sonic to complete our attempt at cooling down from the hot summer weather. Slushies are on their minds, so with my arm fully twisted, we buzz through the drive-through on our way home. My kids have their favorites; anything blue for my son, cherry, grape and strawberry for the girls. For me, I always order the cherry limeade; Read More »

Fresh Blueberry-Oat Bars

Freshly picked blueberries are my husband’s favorite summertime fruit. Each time we go to our local blueberry patch, we make sure to pick an extra pailful of blueberries, so he has plenty to snack on.
