These power balls make a great little snack or treat. There are two versions…
The cookies I took to my neighbor's cookie exchange were one of my all-time favorites - Snickerdoodles! I even used half whole-wheat flour to make them a little better, and I honestly don't even think you could tell, because the outcome was deeelicious.
I'm excited to share this recipe for Chocolate Chip Blondies, which is what I made for holiday cookie exchange parties this year.
If you (or your kids) are getting tired of the same old snacks I've got the perfect solution to switch things up ...A Pumpkin Pie Green Smoothie!
Summer is the perfect time to take a break from the heat with a cold treat. I know last summer my kids went through their fair share of popsicles, freezie pops, push-ups, and ice cream. Well you may have noticed that we are on day 11 of our 100 Days of Real Food and of …
Both of my daughters typically request yellow birthday cake over chocolate, which consistently leaves me wondering if there was a mix up at birth.
It's no secret that (with our pledge officially over) we do indulge in some special treats on occasion. So, just in time for Cinco de Mayo, here is my husband's recipe for Homemade Honeydew Melon Margaritas!
Today I am excited to share another dessert recipe with you that I absolutely love and that's also perfect for the holidays...Homemade Chocolate Soufflés! This is the recipe I've made for Christmas dessert in years past and, after resurrecting it for our blogging team's holiday dinner over the weekend (details below), there is no question I'll be serving souffles again for the big day…
I am so excited about this recipe. I mean how can you not be when we are talking about dessert?!! If only I would have thought about this sooner. The last few months of 2013 were like a hosting extravaganza at our house for some reason. It seemed like every weekend we were cooking dinner for friends, and the idea of a dessert like…
Even us die-hard real foodies love a “cheat” treat every now and then. And if it’s homemade from scratch (and includes chocolate!!) I am game. These molten lava cakes are perfect for Valentine’s Day or any other time of year you’re simply having a craving. Their naturally small size helps keep serving sizes in check, …
If you don’t already own an ice cream maker…I think it is worth it to go out and buy one (could be a good father’s day gift!). The difference between store-bought and homemade ice cream is unbelievable. And with the machines for sale these days there is no ice, rock salt, or cranking necessary. You …
I have a super fun summer party idea for you ...Backyard Movie Night with a DIY S'mores Bar!
If you don’t have anything special planned for Father’s Day (this Sunday!) then here is your answer. This simple whole-wheat German “oven pancake” can easily be passed off as a breakfast, snack, or even a dessert dish (especially if you top it with homemade ice cream…yum). Both the apple and pear suggested below go really …
Chocolate pudding used to be a regular thing for me as a kid and also for my kids before we cut out all highly processed food. This recipe for Homemade Chocolate Pudding only takes 5 minutes to make, and it's a treat that's definitely worth it!
This Blueberry Lemon Bundt Cake didn't last long. I had it sitting on a cake plate on the counter for a dinner with friends, and it was amazing how many people immediately said, "Oh, that looks good." And thankfully it lived up to their expectations.
These maple almond shortbread cookies would be a perfect "first" recipe for an older child to make all on their own - just think how proud they'd be!
I've got a yummy little snack to have on hand while you've got guests in town (or will be traveling) this week ... Maple Pecan Bars! These won't last long.
Did you know that food intolerances affect approximately 10% of Americans, whereas food allergies are thought to affect 4% of teens and adults and 5% of children?
I think this might be a dangerous new recipe to have on hand because these whole-wheat madeleines are so good and so easy! We shared some with a good friend, and she couldn't believe they'd been made with whole-wheat flour because they were so light and tasty.
I am really glad that I tried cooking a pumpkin! I tested out two different ways to make pumpkin puree, and I have results to share.
My grandmother is known for both her Crepes and her "Apple Slices." And I don't just mean apples cut into slices. It is what she calls her version of apple pie, and maybe it's because she has such a big family (soon to be 28 of us!).
Well, today is my birthday, and I am turning the big FOUR-OH! So, what better way to ring in another decade than with a super scrumptious homemade Chocolate Chip Bundt cake?
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.
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?!
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!
These homemade Nilla Wafers come really close to the original in both taste and texture, without all the bad ingredients. Get the recipe and give them a try!
Watch me transform oatmeal creme pies from a processed boxed cookie into a tasty homemade version with reduced sugar! I know you'll enjoy this treat.
This (mostly) real food unicorn cake was made completely from scratch using only natural food dyes and homemade funfetti. Get all the tips and tools my daughter used to make the cake of her dreams.
This organic whole-wheat monkey bread recipe has just 10g of sugar per serving (reduced from 36), and the cream cheese glaze puts it over the top!
