Do you ever find yourself making excuses for why you can’t eat healthy? Maybe you feel like you don’t have enough time. Or that your family is too picky. Or that it’s too expensive. As a working mom with two kids, I’ve been there. I know how challenging it can be to consistently prepare meals that are fast, healthy, taste good, and fit into your budget.

So you have a new electric pressure cooker (or Instant Pot)? And it’s still sitting in the box? Or you’ve only tried 1 meal so far? You’re not alone. But I want to help you get it out of the box and try new meals. Because, oh my word…this little appliance is such a sanity saver.
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.
We sure do love cinnamon rolls (who doesn’t?). But the way they’re typically made (i.e. FULL of sugar!) they resemble dessert much more than breakfast…
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?!
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.
If you’re a fan of fall flavors, then you’ll love these Whole-Grain Pumpkin-Spiced Waffles! And if you have a electric donut maker, this same batter works in there, too.
Today I want to share one way to deal with all the candy you end up with this time of year as well as some real food for Halloween or fall-themed parties (new recipe included!).
I’ve got a new recipe for you today that’s technically part of my baking series. But no one will mind if you don’t actually have to bake them in the oven, will they? I’m personally a big fan of skipping steps (i.e., saving time) in the kitchen, so I’m excited to share these new No-Bake Peanut Butter Oat Bars with you today that my girls absolutely LOVE. I’m talking dance around the kitchen love when they see me making them. :)
I have a super fun summer party idea for you …Backyard Movie Night with a DIY S’mores Bar!
I’m doing something a little different today and posting one of our favorite recipes from my cookbook! It’s perfect for the warmer weather we’re having.
