Recipe Redux – Potato Rolls

This month’s Recipe Redux theme, in honor of Thanksgiving, is a food memory for which we are thankful and then a healthy “redo” of that recipe. This was pretty easy for me to come up with an idea as one memory and food jumps out at me this time of year. My family has always made potato rolls […]

Menu Plan Monday – December 30

I hope you all had a magical Christmas. I know we did. We had a wonderful day with family and watching C and E play. C is beginning to grasp the meaning, beyond Santa. I did not do as much with our advent calendar this year as I had hoped but next year I will […]

Roasted Carrot Souffle and Pompeian Grapeseed Oil Review

Disclosure: I received a free bottle of Pompeian Grapeseed Oil to test. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  Cooking spray is one of my must-haves in the kitchen. I use it almost daily for a variety of tasks in the kitchen from cooking eggs, greasing baking dishes to a quick spritz on a measuring […]

Menu Plan Monday – December 2

Happy Monday! A bit of a late start today. Playing lots of catch up after taking off most of last week to be with my family. We had a wonderful and fairly laid back Thanksgiving. I started the morning off with a chilly 5K. My husband and children were supposed to do it with me, […]

Menu Plan Monday – November 25

Happy Thanksgiving! I still can’t believe it is Thanksgiving this week. Where has this year gone? I know I say it all too often and it is rather cliche, but I need time to S-L-O-W   D-O-W-N! I am thankful to live close by family so that my children regularly see all of their aunts, […]

Recipe Redux – Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Have Snacks. Will Travel. This month’s Recipe Redux theme is all about packing healthy snacks for the road. This couldn’t have come at a better time as I was in the airport when I saw the theme with some of my favorite snacks already packed in my bag, as you see in the picture above. […]

Breakfast Banana Bread Pudding in the Slow Cooker

Recipe Redux – Broccoli & Sausage Egg “Muffins”

This month’s Recipe Redux theme is all about showers, or brunch parties. It is that time of year for baby showers, bridal showers, graduation parties, etc.  My first thought was that my Breakfast Pizza with Cauliflower Crust would have been perfect! Instead, I came up with a dish that would be great for a buffet style brunch, Broccoli […]

Happy Christmas Eve! I can’t believe it is almost Christmas. I feel like I’ve been running a marathon but the finish line isn’t in sight. With all of the birthdays and my daughter’s christening yesterday, I can finally focus on Christmas. My son is very excited and it does make it all the more fun […]
