I have to admit, peaches had never really been my thing. But, we are part of an amazing CSA share this year with a local farm, and of course we got a few peaches from three different varieties! When Cooper wasn’t even moderately interested in trying, I knew I’d have to get creative and then I remembered my apple crisp, and knew I could create another winner (without excessive leftovers) with this small batch honey peach crisp! I also realized I love white peaches, so that was cool, too.
I’ve had this recipe ready for awhile, and national chocolate chip cookie day seemed fitting for me to finally post it!
When it comes to sweets, I’m a chocolate person. Most days a square or two of Alter Eco dark chocolate is what I’m craving, but sometimes I need melty chocolate to satisfy the craving. Cookie or brownie type of melty chocolate.
On any given day, there’s a good chance I eat at least two different types of nut butter, if not three. The number of jars of nut and seed butter in our pantry may seem excessive, but it really elevates meals and snacks whether sweet or savory and everything in between.
The best part of Valentine’s Day is absolutely the treats. But, you don’t want to rely on someone else to get you what you want. Who wants to be disappointed that their favorite treat is X and they got Y instead? Advocate for yourself and make your fave dessert, whether that’s amazing cinnamon rolls made in under an hour, or anything else.
There’s these amazing chickpea flour banana bread muffins I made a few years ago. They’re now one of the most consistent posts I get traffic from via search engines, and they’ve been turned into amazing cupcakes and gingerbread muffins, too. Despite their deliciousness and nutrient density, I was still a bit uneasy about the added sugar if they’d be a regular part of Cooper’s diet, so I set out to adapt them to be added sugar free. Now I present to you, Mommy & Me banana muffins!
Chocolate Peppermint Week is closing out with more recipes than you ever expected! Bonus, they’re all from registered dietitians. I don’t say that because you need to make all of your holiday treats “more healthy”, but because dietitians have the best taste in food!
Earlier this fall I polled myInstagram audience on their favorite holiday foods and flavors. I had an overwhelming number of written responses indicate the chocolate-peppermint flavor combo was their favorite and decided that’s what I’d focus on this holiday season. Today’s post is the first of a week of chocolate peppermint – yes, a full week! You’ll be getting simple indulgent recipes to share with family and friends this holiday season – or keep all for yourself, that’s up to you.
I’ll be the first to admit, I did not grow up much of a snickerdoodle fan. Chocolate chip cookies will always be my #1, but with snickerdoodle being Tim’s favorite, I’ve found myself making them and actually enjoying them, too!
I hope you aren’t getting sick of fall flavors, because this won’t be the last post showcasing pumpkin, apple, cranberry or pear this season! These fluffy pumpkin chocolate chip cookies are the texture anyone craves from a pumpkin treat and are lightly sweetened with honey (and chocolate chips, of course).
This post is a quick one. I teased this apple crisp on Instagram and had so many messages asking for the recipe that I decided to get it up right away! It’s meant to be smaller than most recipes since we live in a house with only two adults, so if you need, feel free to double and cook in a larger baking dish than recommended.
