Anyone else feel like January is an entire year long, then February is over in 18 seconds? Weird. Anyway, after all the sweet recipes I have shared lately, I thought a nice and healthy snack recipe would be a nice change. This Morning Glory Muffins Recipe is super healthy, vegan and one bowl making it one of my favorites. These muffins are perfect for meal prep on Sunday to have as a snack or breakfast all week long. The combination of fruit, nuts and veggies make these muffins both sweet and hearty that any kid or adult will love. Also, these muffins can be changed and customized to you and your families personal taste. Enjoy!
Happy January everyone! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. January is always an odd month to me; it’s cold, dreary and a lot of times I am recovering from all the cooking and craziness of the previous months. This Roasted Red Pepper Tomato Soup is one of my favorite post holiday recipes. It is super simple, ready fast and easy on the waistline. Plus, the soup itself is vegan so it is perfect for those Meatless Mondays! Although, if you are not vegan you could always throw on some grilled cheese bites or freshly grated Parmesan for the perfect finish. From my family to yours, happy new year and I hope you enjoy this tasty soup!
The holidays are here! If you are anything like me you have planned out the turkey, the sides and the desserts, but may have overlooked the appetizer. This recipe is one of those that people think you spent a lot of time and effort on, when in reality it is a breeze. This recipe is super simple, fast and has a short-cut to make it even simpler. These Blackberry Brie Bites are the perfect last-minute holiday appetizer recipe that will save you time and your sanity all while impressing your guests. All you need is 20 minutes, a few key ingredients and the ability to cut square shapes (or in my case rectangles). Continue Reading…
Thanksgiving is nearly here with Christmas right on it’s heels! Appetizers are perfect for the holiday season and some of my favorite recipes to create and eat. I love that this Prosciutto Wrapped Breadsticks with Gouda Cheese Dip recipe is simple, fast and a play on a classic. The entire dish is ready in about 20 minutes making it perfect for a last minute appetizer. This recipe will stand out among the tired and boring cheese and crackers plate, and please all your young and not so young party guests.
Let me just start by saying that myself and my family are NOT vegans. We enjoy meat and cheese very often. That being said I do try and incorporate vegan and vegetarian meals on a daily basis for my family. There are tons of health benefits from a high vegetable and plant based diet. This Spicy Vegan Black Bean Soup is one of my favorite vegan dishes that I make for my family on a regular basis. I love how healthy, simple and fast this recipe is, and that it tastes good and makes you feel good. So before you turn your nose up to a vegan dish, GIVE IT A TRY! And if not there will be cookies next week.
It is finally Fall! This is my favorite season and time of year. I love the crisp air, leaves changing colors, bonfires and, of course, all things pumpkin! Truth be told I consume pumpkin all year round but once that first leaf falls all of a sudden I want pumpkin everything! My mom made a delicious pumpkin bread growing up, but, unfortunately, she has lost the recipe! To my dismay I had to come up with a replacement recipe. Luckily, this Pumpkin Spice Loaf Cake with Dark Chocolate Swirl at least ties my mom’s recipe in deliciousness. The combination of pumpkin, spices and dark chocolate are everything I love and perfect for a Fall dessert!
This is my family’s favorite recipe. I know I will probably say that about a lot of my dishes, but this one is really it. It is so simple, ready in about 10 minutes, and I always have the ingredients on hand. We have this in our home at least every other week, and my husband requests it even more. Every time I make this Easy Margherita Pizza Recipe, my tummy is so happy. The simple preparation, short cook time and delicious combination of flavors are just a few reasons that this recipe is perfect.
I am excited to share this Perfect Marinara Sauce with you today! For so many years, I have been buying jar after jar of marinara sauce from the store because I thought making my own would be too time consuming or difficult. I was so incredibly wrong. After about two years of consistently making my own sauces this marinara sauce is one I always come back to.
