We had our annual Holiday Dinner over the weekend with our lovely team, and it was a fun time as always. I provided the main dish - Asian Glazed Fish - and here is the recipe along with some other cooking inspiration.
With appetizers, sides, desserts and a salad, I'm here to share ten ideas of what you can bring to all your holiday pot luck gatherings in the coming weeks.
We know that healthy eating can be a challenge on the road, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned over the years, it's that you don’t have to completely abandon your healthy habits when you travel. For us, that means finding ways to include green smoothies in our travel plans.
My family was literally scraping every last bit of the remaining braised pork sauce from the pan and pouring it over their mashed potatoes...so good!
I am so excited to tell you all about my friends Jadah and Jen's brand new Simple Green Smoothies book! First of all, my whole family loves smoothies - they are our green drink of choice.
Gone are the days of iceberg lettuce topped with limp veggies and bottled, processed dressings. No wonder I didn’t really enjoy salads until recently…I thought that’s what they were all about! It’s amazing how incorporating fresh greens, roasted nuts or seeds, distinctive cheeses, fresh fruit, and homemade dressings can change everything. And I know I am late getting on this bandwagon, but I’ve recently…
This vegetarian enchiladas recipe is a crowd pleaser - even for those who don’t love mushrooms. My 12-year-old didn’t even notice they were in there once they were smothered with the cheese mixture and yummy sauce.
The next time you go to a friend's house, offer to bring an appetizer and make this Cheesy Chicken Dip! Warm dips are always a crowd pleaser, and this one is no exception.
Today I'm excited to tell you all about King Arthur's new whole-grain Sprouted Wheat Flour and how it turned out in the yummy savory scone recipe I'm sharing!
I've got three quick and simple breakfast ideas for those busy weekday mornings when you're flying out the door so you can start the day off right!
Just in time for the Super Bowl, I've got an easy and tasty appetizer recipe for you! This Breaded Shrimp doesn't have to be for adults only, though. My kids used to always turn their noses up at shrimp until I made this recipe for them.
My family is a huge fan of scones, and these Raspberry Almond Scones below (flavored with almond extract) are no exception! If pancakes and waffles are your go-to weekend breakfast treats, then I'd suggest switching things up with this recipe instead.
Every December I get together with my closest group of mom-friends (which originally started as a playgroup over a decade ago!) for a holiday cookie exchange party. This year I took these Whole-Wheat Ginger Snaps.
There's nothing better than reinventing old favorites and that's exactly what my 9-year-old and I did recently with our waffle maker! A waffle maker is a great first appliance for big kids to use, so this is a good way to get them excited about being creative in the kitchen.
Meatless Monday meets Taco Tuesday with this delicious recipe for cauliflower tacos. Even your biggest meat-lover won't miss a thing!
When I first set this Roasted Veggie and Ricotta Pizza down for dinner, my 9-year-old was not so sure, but she was hungry and even surprised herself with how much she liked it served this way!
One of my favorite dinners to cook in the summer is grill packets! They are super easy to make, can be prepared in advance, and give you a great excuse to sit around the fire pit at the end of the night. You don’t even have to get any plates dirty if you don’t want to. These …
Here is yet another winter vegetable that I’ve never thought of fondly…collard greens. In all seriousness, I felt the same way about collard greens as I did about kale. I had never tried it before our switch to real food, and I certainly didn’t have any plans to run out and buy any. However, once …
By blog team member, Kiran. To learn more about Kiran, check out our team page! I’ve been seeing commercials recently for Sargento Balanced Breaks, and it got me thinking. First off, I think this is a fairly good alternative for on-the-go snacking. Cheese, nuts, and dried fruit mean you’re getting a decent dose of dairy and …
I was brainstorming what types of super EASY dinners I might be in the mood to make when arriving back home right at 5:00 pm on a school night after a busy weekend out of town. So, the winning home cooked dinner turned out to be Simple Seafood with a side of the Sheet Pan Brussels Sprouts and Potatoes
These Green Curry Fish Packets are such an easy, mess-free summer meal! Get ready to impress your dinner guests with this one. They'll never guess how easy it was to make.
Today we're talking about almonds (one of our favorite nuts!) and ways we can all try harder to limit food waste. So, just in time for Earth Day this weekend, I'm excited to share some recipes to help you do that.
Over the years, I've enjoyed a number of pepper jellies, but I've always bemoaned the amount of sugar necessary for their creation. This version uses honey in place of refined sugar and is satisfyingly sweet without being cloying.
These cookies would be great as an after-school snack, a throw-in for the lunchbox, or even doubled up for a different on-the-go breakfast. And by doubling up, I mean that you may want two. Why not?!
Are there any watermelon fans out there? Anyone, anyone? Yeah, I thought so. My family is 6/6 for giving two thumbs up on this summer fruit, so we had no reservations about partnering with the National Watermelon Promotion Board on today's sponsored post.
We have another Indian-themed recipe for you to try. Similar to falafel, these split pea fritters are a plant-based protein source, bite-sized, and also fairly inexpensive (and easy!) to make.
This Veggie Mash recipe is such a great alternative to roasted veggies because it takes almost half the time.
This Shrimp Pad Thai recipe is a simple one-dish dinner with amazing fresh flavors that include green onion, cilantro, lime juice, and garlic.
These copycat Nutty Buddy Bars are free of processed ingredients and pretty reminiscent of what used to be my favorite packaged dessert. Hope you enjoy!
Gluten-free certainly is a buzzword these days, but there are sooo many gluten-free products out there that are made of processed junk. Not these cookies!
I'm excited to share a yummy new recipe with you today - Japanese Meatball & Ramen Bowls! It's a dish that I first had thanks to one of my Blue Apron boxes a few months ago, and it was a BIG hit with my whole family.
One thing I love about shrimp is how quick and easy it is to make. This light Creamy Shrimp Pasta with Lemon is a perfect way to kick off summer.
I've always been a potato cake fan but never tried making them with mashed potatoes (as opposed to shredded potatoes) until now. What I love about this Smashed Potato Cakes with Kale recipe, aside from the taste, is how it can easily pass for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
This is a very easy-to-make breakfast recipe that has been passed down from my mom. Preparation hardly takes longer than frying up an egg, and both of my girls absolutely love it! It is definitely up there as one of their most favorite breakfast dishes. So step out of the box and surprise your family …
Cereal bars sure are convenient, but the packaged ones leave a lot to be desired. Today's recipe for homemade Whole Wheat Cereal Bars includes black walnuts - something I honestly had never heard of before working with Hammons.
This easy one-pot chowder is quick enough for a weeknight dinner but tastes like it came from a fancy restaurant. Real food doesn't have to be complicated!
