Healthy Shamrock Shake {Mint-Flavored Smoothie}

Friday, March 15th, 2013

I’ve never had a real Shamrock Shake, and by “real” I mean one from McDonald’s. Even though my shake is a knock-off, I’m guessing it has more real ingredients than the McDonald’s version…

A lover of all things mint, I decided to re-do the Shamrock Shake into a breakfast-worthy meal that’s perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, or any day you want a sweet but healthy start. (more…)

Broccoli Divan {Vegan; Grain-Free; Gluten-Free}

Thursday, January 17th, 2013

DSC_9309(small)One of the monthly cooking groups I’m in, the 5 Star Makeover group, has had a bit of a makeover itself and is now the Creative Cooking Crew of 24 talented bloggers, hosted by Laz of Lazaro Cooks and Joan of Foodalogue. Group member Trix from Tasty Trix chose the theme for our first month: “Choose one of your favorite rich, heavy, fatty animal-protein-based meals and give it a healthy VEGAN spin.”  It’s a theme I was pretty happy with, as I’m no stranger to developing vegan recipes (Refried Lentils, Spinach & Bulgur Wheat Stuffed Red Peppers, and Pumpkin Chickpea Curry have been a few favorites in my house). Thinking it would be fun and easy, I was pleased with this theme.

But when it came time to actually choose something to make it was a bit harder than I expected. (more…)

Peanut Butter Banana Bread Whoopie Pies {7 Days of Festive Holiday Treats}

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Today is day two of my 7 Days of Festive Holiday Treats event, and I’d like to have something for everyone. I know this recipe will appeal to the more health-conscious. Maybe you enjoy festive baking, but want to eat a bit cleaner – something along the lines of my Skinny Caramel Macchiato Cookies? I think you’ll love these. (more…)

Chocolate Cupcakes for Two {Vegan}

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

There’s something about me you need to know.

I can’t do dry cake. Or gummy cake. Or bland cake.

I’d rather eat celery sticks.

Even if I’m dying for a chocolate fix.

Cinnamon-Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

Have you tried chia seeds?  I first had them sprinkled on a salad a couple years ago…they are delicious with a subtle nutty flavor, and they pair well with so many things.  (They’re a great addition to smoothies, oatmeal, and muffins!)    For the past year or so, I’ve been seeing chia seed pudding all over the place and I decided it was finally time to try it for myself.

Indian-Spiced Roasted Potatoes

Indian-Spiced Roasted Potatoes

One of our favorite summer meals is tandoori chicken cooked on a charcoal grill. Using a charcoal grill takes quite a bit more work than a gas grill, but the smoky flavor is completely worth it. (Plus, Mike is in charge of the grilling so it doesn’t matter to me…and he enjoys it. :) ) (more…)

Chocolate Avocado Pudding {Vegan}

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

It’s not new, but on the off chance that someone hasn’t made chocolate avocado pudding I wanted to share my version.  If you’re on the fence about making it, give it a try!  If the fact that it’s healthy doesn’t sell you, just know that its creaminess rivals that of any chocolate pudding you’ve indulged in.  (And no, you can’t taste the avocado!)  :) (more…)

Caramel-Vanilla Cupcakes for 5 {Vegan}

Friday, February 24th, 2012

So, what are you making for dessert tonight?  Maybe something like that Caramel Apple Cake I saw on your blog a while ago?, a friend excitedly asked me around 2 o’clock one afternoon.  

I thought we’d forgo dessert this time, you know, since everyone is trying to eat healthy…, I trailed off.  Dead silence from my friend.  

I guess “eating healthy” doesn’t mean skipping dessert, even for a regular weeknight meal among close friends that’s not in celebration of anything other than it being a Tuesday night.  

I can roll with it.  Dessert was back on the menu, stat. (more…)

Valentine’s Day Side Dish — Baby Hasselback Potatoes

Thursday, February 2nd, 2012

One of the things I love most about food blogging is checking out my fellow bloggers’ sites.  I am inspired to no end by you guys!  When I first started blogging (which feels like forever ago) I came across a recipe for hasselback potatoes on Sea Salt with Food.  I thought they looked pretty fantastic and jotted the site down on a piece of scrap paper…and thus began my “to-make” list, which is now 12 typed pages long and ever-increasing.

Valentine’s Day Menu & First Course — Bean & Barley Salad

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

I don’t know about you, but I prefer a romantic Valentine’s Day meal at home over a meal at most restaurants.  That way you get to enjoy a quiet meal with your loved one in the comfort of your own home without any waiting or traveling…and I’m guessing the food is just as good (or better!), not to mention cheaper.  The only downside is the clean-up, but that’s where enlisting your Valentine’s help comes in.  ;)
