Cranberry Apple Oatmeal Bake

Another cranberry recipe! This is one of those recipes you feel healthy and good about yourself after enjoying.  It was simple to make and quick to throw together.  My verdict is still out on whether or not I prefer oatmeal baked or cooked on the stove.  The stove top version is so good!  This is […]

Easy Peasy Applesauce

It’s that time of the year again…where apples are plentiful.  We made crockpot Red Beans and Rice again this weekend (so good!) and served it with homemade applesauce.  It was a perfect combination. The applesauce was simple to make.  Peeling, coring and dicing the apples took some time, but it was worth it. Homemade Applesauce […]

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookies

I saw this recipe in my recent addition of Cooking Light and dog-eared the page.  Healthy(er) cookies?  I am up for that. First bite in I wasn’t so sure about these cookies.  They weren’t bad by any means…but I didn’t want my cookie to taste too wheaty (if you know what I mean).  The second batch we cooked […]

A healthy start to your day…

It was delicious and nutritious.  The only downside was that it turned the smoothie from a beautiful red color to a more neutral brown color, but for all the added benefits I can handle that. Spinach […]

Brown Rice Risotto

I have gotten into a new habit.  Whenever I see a recipe I am interested in, either online or in a magazine, I add it to my pin board on pinterest.  Now I only have to go to one place to see all the recipes I want to try, it takes up no space in […]

Lentil Soup

We made lentil soup for dinner over the weekend.  The original recipe called for bacon and tomatoes, but we had sausage that needed to be eaten and I didn’t have any tomatoes.  The soup turned out great!  I would definitely make this again.  I made the original recipe as a meal to take to new […]

Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

 Mom made this fruit salsa and cinnamon chips for us when we came to visit over the weekend.  It was so good!  We actually had it for breakfast leftover. This would be a perfect dish to serve at a brunch or for an appetizer.  Mom used this chopper to cube all the apples and strawberries, which […]
