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?!
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.
I love to grow and eat fresh herbs but never even considered adding them to a green salad for some extra flavor. So (now that I know better!), I added some thyme to this Spinach Salad recipe below, and it was a fabulous addition.
I’m excited to share this recipe for Chocolate Chip Blondies, which is what I made for holiday cookie exchange parties this year.
This Walnut Crusted Salmon recipe tops the list as one of the easiest and fastest dinner dishes of all time! As I’ve said before, one of my favorite things about seafood is how fast it cooks, and the walnut crust in this recipe literally adds only minutes to the prep time.
I’ve got a new super easy weeknight meal for you. This Roasted Cauliflower Pasta could work as a main dish (if you sometimes like to skip meat like we do) or as a side dish.
My kids love anything creamy – so much so that they’ll even overlook the kale leaves hidden in this dish. Normally they turn their noses up at kale salad but not when it comes to this Creamy Kale Caesar Salad recipe. Score!
The other day my 9-year-old was hungry for a snack, and after rummaging through the kitchen she said, “Mom, do we have any muffins anywhere?” That girl loves some muffins, and if she’s really hungry she’ll try to eat two in a row (or even three!) some days. So she was thrilled today when she came home from school and said, “What smells so good?” and I explained that it was a new muffin creation in the oven …Apple Walnut Muffins! With fall upon us and apples in season this is the perfect combination to snack on (or add to a school lunch) this time of year. I hope your little ones enjoy them as much as mine do! :)
I’ve always had a thing for banana nut muffins, but not until I cut out all highly processed food did I realize that the standard muffin is kind of like a cupcake minus the icing. If you look up muffin recipes online they typically call for white (refined) all-purpose flour and sugar – lots of it.
I’ve got another holiday recipe for you today! This kale and apple salad may be just for the adult table though, if I am being honest. I don’t know about your kids, but my girls have never been big blue cheese fans (they’ve dubbed it “stinky cheese” for obvious reasons), and no matter how hard I try, I can’t get them into raw kale lately either. But just because they feel that way doesn’t mean we have to miss out on this divine combination. So this is one of those rare occasions when our little ones might get something separate…albeit a different type of salad! :)
I’ve got a great little dessert recipe to share with you that is both cute and easy. Trust me, it’s almost impossible to mess this one up.
We served this apple crisp dessert to our Dinner Club guests last weekend. And since we used up every last minute of prep cooking time (before the guests arrived) working on the appetizers and main dishes, I found myself starting from scratch with this dessert at the end of the night. This was after a long day, and, to top it off, it was a dish I’d never even made before.
I usually only serve guests recipes that I know will turn out well, but lately I’ve been more lax in that department for some reason. You just never know when you are going to have a recipe fail! But thankfully I learned it’s hard to screw up apples, butter, sweetener, oats, and nuts all baked together in cute little jar goodness. Clearly the only reason I wanted to serve this dessert in the first place was for an excuse to buy those jars!
The rest of our evening was (thankfully) a lot less spontaneous. Here’s what we served:
