Sausage, Potato, and Kale Skillet

This is a great quick and easy dinner that creates very little dishes. I HATE dishes, if I didn’t like cooking so much I might not do it just so I didn’t create dishes, haha. So when I can make dinner using minimal dishes that feels like win to me! 🙂 The first time I…


Coconut Chia Pudding

In case you haven’t figured it out yet, I love coconut! 😀 This recipe is for a super yummy, light pudding. Chia seeds are an awesome super food, full of all sorts of goodness! I’m not really sure why or how it works, but they kind of act like a thickener when left to sit…


Sauerkraut Grilled Cheese

This is really more a concept then a recipe…. I love making all different variations of grilled cheese. This is one of my all time favorites! I am a huge fan of sauerkraut and I think the tartness of the sauerkraut goes really well with the creamy gooeyness of the melted cheese. Sauerkraut Grilled Cheese…


Almond Coconut Cookies

So I had some eggs white I needed to use up and thought I might try to make some meringue cookies, honesty I have never made them. But I’m not a huge fan of meringue cookies, I wanted something chewy. I had my first french macaron just the other week, so good! But I didn’t…


Avocado, Sweet Potato, and Caramelized Onions

This is such a simple and easy dish to throw together and is incredibly yummy! It makes a great side for dinner or even a small lunch. Avocados, sweet potatoes and onions are all things I buy lots of and always have some of on hand, which is basically how this recipes transpired. One spring…


Ginger, Ginger, Ginger!

Crystalized Ginger and Ginger Ale

Ginger is an amazing thing! Probably among the best foods you can consume, numerous health benefits. Granted… this recipe does have a lot of sugar which is not good. I use Zulka brand sugar, it’s all natural, unprocessed, unrefined, non-gmo, so I think it’s better, still too much sugar isn’t good. My husband loves crystallized…


Fruit and Nut Bars

I love love love LARA bars! My kids love them too and they make such a great healthy snack or on the go breakfast and great for packing for outings. But with all of us loving them that can get to be very spendy and our budget just does not allow for that. Good new…


Dark Chocolate Panna Cotta

I made this for one of the first Valentine’s Day with my husband. I had honestly never even heard of it before making, I think there was a recipe in something like Family Circle, or one of those types of magazines. It was amazing! But of course, cause it’s chocolate and I’m obsessed 😀 The…


Cheese Fondue

Seriously, like other then chocolate, what can be better then cheese and bread? Yum! I know, I know, it’s not the healthiest thing out there, not even close, but it’s so good! I like to make it for super special at home date nights, which is why I thought it would be perfect to share…


Whole Wheat Rolls

I love good homemade yeast rolls, there are days when it feels like there is nothing better, especially when they are still warm from the oven. While the white flour version does have a nice soft, chewy consistency, I try hard to only use whole wheat flour in my baking. It is hard to find…
