  I love making smoothies.  This chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie is the one I make most often.  Yes, it’s a mouthful to say, ha ha, but it tastes great!  Like drinking a peanut butter cup. 🙂   The think I love the most about smoothies in general is how adaptable they are.  I love that I can find a great recipe, and then adjust it to make it my own.  This chocolate peanut butter banana smoothie, for example, has […]

I’ve been experimenting, yo. I’m making snacks kids should love.  Yes, should.  Will they?  Do they?  Let’s find out.   It’s like a nesting instinct.  I don’t understand!  I have this desire, this pull, this NEED to make snack foods in bulk so that I don’t have to stress over it later.     We’ve been experimenting with a few ideas we’ve found on Pinterest, and the kids are taste testing.  They have given their thumbs up/down and I am going […]

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I will be making my family some Irish Soda Bread.  I found the recipe from Sally’s Smorsel’s a year ago, and it was so good.

So here’s how you do it.   Irish Soda Bread 1 egg 2 cups sour milk […]

If you like salad, but are looking for something other than the standard ranch to dress it up with, you should try this Lemon Dill Dressing. I’ve been eating a LOT of salad.  But I can’t have ranch (mayo, which has eggs and dairy) or most other dressings (sugar, corn)…so I made my own, and I’m not gonna lie, it’s really been love at first taste, and I’m SO grateful for that!  It’s made my eating much easier.  It’s super […]
