While it may still be August and in my mind summer just began, all over the country kids are already heading back to school! While a balanced breakfast is important for all children and adults, it’s even more essential that student-athletes are fitting in this important meal before they head to use their brains for most of the day.

The past couple of years we have opted not to partake in a CSA share since we spend so many summer weekends traveling and visiting family. Whenever we are home though, we head to the Wrightstown Farmer’s Market since we absolutely love the super seasonal produce that might only be available for a week or two each year! It’s also great to support local farms and have food immediately after harvest.
My travel unfortunately made me miss the fiddle-head ferns and garlic scapes this year, but green garlic was a great consolation. Continue reading
Spring is the perfect time to finally try overnight oats! If you’re anything like me, you need your oats nice and warm in the winter and thinking of pulling cold oatmeal out of the fridge to start your day is cringe-worthy. This time of year though, it’s great to save time and have this meal on the go.
On Sunday’s in the Jones household, we almost always have pancakes or waffles. When I was first thinking about what I would make with my coffee concentrate(no, it’s not just to make easier cold-brew coffee), crepes came to mind, but I am not a pro at those and, honestly, would you have actually used my recipe and made crepes?! Probably not. So, waffles came to mind, and now I have this fun recipe to share with you!
When I first saw the theme for this month’s Recipe Redux challenge, I was pretty excited. I love educating my clients and audiences on how make a quick “emergency” meal with pantry and freezer staples. The theme is
“Spring Clean Your Kitchen”
“Use at least 3 ingredients that are actually in your refrigerator or pantry right now. Try not to go to the store to buy anything new…”
The way this challenge panned out for me couldn’t have been any more perfect. I completely forgot about it and I am typing this up a half hour after coming up with my idea, cooking it, loving it, and packing it for Tim for lunch tomorrow! Continue reading
I can’t even taco ’bout how excited I am for this months Recipe Redux theme…
Healthy. Creative. Tacos!
We here in the Jones household are big fans of Mexican food. Nachos, tacos, enchiladas, fajitas, Mexican salads, and of course margaritas, are on the regular rotation whether out and about or in the comfort of our casa. Tim’s homemade salsa and my guacamole are constant staples in our home to add to any dish, Mexican or not. Our love for jalapenos and cilantro is evidenced by this past weekend’s salsa consumption. Tim made a double batch Continue reading
Happy weekend! While I hope you have some time to spend in your kitchen preparing delicious things in the next two days, I know that the typical Monday through Friday grind doesn’t allow for much leisure time cooking. You’re already aware that I’m a big fan of meal prep to make your week low on stress and high on nutrients and flavor, but sometimes you still need a quick and budget friendly week-night meal.
