Cranberry Relish

Cranberry Relish

Topher’s Cranberry Relish Ever since I was a kid, I have been obsessed with cranberries. I would order cranberry juice instead of soda at restaurants, mix cranberry juice with other juices at home (cranberry orange is amazing), and the cranberry sauce was always my favorite part of our holiday meals. In high school, I began…


Dutch Apple Pie

Dutch Apple Pie

Mmmmm, apple pie! An American classic, although it predates America. I was bored a few weeks back and was looking up the history on apple pie, I know random. I wasn’t terrible surprised, but it has been around for quite some time! The first written recipe appeared in 1381 and I’m sure apple pie recipes…


Berry Mint Salad

Berry Mint Salad

Wow, this salad was sooo good! I was a bit disappointed that my 2 year old loved it so much, she gobbled her’s all done and helped herself to some more and then ate most of her brothers. He didn’t like it, but still willingly ate several bites when asked, so I think he secretly…


Watermelon Mint Popsicles

We are well into summer now and it is hot out there! These Watermelon Mint Popsicles are a great and healthy way to keep cool! Not only are they are great frozen treat, mint is naturally cooling and watermelon is super hydrating, a much better treat than something sugary. I think watermelon and mint make…


Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberry Shortcake

Strawberries are probably my most favorite fruit! Strawberry Shortcake has always also been a big favorite of mine (both the dessert and the cartoon BTW 😀 ).

Fruit and Nut Bars

Homemade-Lara-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…


Banana Ice Cream

Peanut Butter Yogurt Dip

IMG_0503

I have had many different variations of these dip, but most of which were far too sweet for me! Some definitely more of a dessert dip. So this is my version, it’s simple, easy, and quick, it can easily be used for breakfast, lunch or a snack, even a light dinner. I use greek yogurt,…
