Small Batch Peach Crisp

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.

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.

15 Creative Uses for Nut Butter

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.

Sweet Potato Snickerdoodles

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!

Small Batch Honey Apple Crisp

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.

Sprouted Grain Pizza and Calzone Dough

When it’s football season, whether you love watching the game or not, you’re bound to be around someone who does and wind up at a game watch or tailgate. Chances are, at those functions, you’ll be running into some beer, and what goes better with beer than pizza?

What if I told you it was easier than you think? I introduce the dough that makes the perfect personal pizza and calzones…and dessert pizza. One dough to make everyone happy! Continue reading
