Homemade Protein-Packed Granola Bars

I have tried my hand at making granola bars or protein bars countless times before. While they tasted good, they were nothing like the traditional store bought bars. They either fell apart into crumbles, or were too goopy. I couldn’t get the consistency right. Until now.

Look at those beauts!

The secret to it […]

Sweet Potato Black Bean Dip

I’m baaaaack, and with another black bean recipe! My last post mostly boasted about how easy and cheap beans were.

But, I didn’t talk about how insanely good for you beans are! You won’t catch me on any diet that cuts out legumes. 🙂

Check out this study: Legumes: The most important dietary predictor of […]

Lemon Dill White Bean Hummus

Is there anything better than raw veggies in the summer? What about having a great dip to serve with them!

This recipe is inspired by a local company, Ithaca Hummus. I had been making the same hummus flavors over and over, like roasted garlic, and roasted red pepper, which were delicious, but I was […]

Mango Lime Creamer

How was your Mother’s Day?! I feel like I truly have the best of both worlds, having my mom around, and being a mom, myself. At the same time, I am painfully aware of how hard this is for some of my friends, who have lost their mom, a child, or miscarried. It makes […]

Spirulina Snack Balls

Buying in bulk is one of my new favorite things! I joined a lovely local group that does bulk buys and saves our family a little money. Note to self: Don’t get carried away and order bulk spirulina.

Kevin and I love trying new foods, especially “superfoods,” after we read about the benefits! Spirulina, a […]

Sweet and Salty Cashew Popcorn

Talk to my college roommates, and they will tell you it’s not an exaggeration when I say I used to eat microwave popcorn every single day. After dinner we’d all settle in to study and they’d hear the popping of my “extra butter” bag of popcorn.

When I made a drastic change in the foods […]

Healthy Gelatin Jigglers

Ahh, Jello. A food people have strong opinions on, kind of like cilantro, am I right? You either love it or hate it. As for me… well, I don’t love it! I remember my parents buying it in the individual serving cups as a kid, or sometimes making it. Even back then, I didn’t love […]

Banana Macaroon Chia Pudding

Coming off Halloween weekend, most people have had more than their fair share of sugar. I know I would have, IF we bought candy. That’s right, we didn’t buy any candy for Halloween! Because our new house is out in the country, we knew we wouldn’t have any trick-or-treaters. The only neighbor close enough to […]

Slowcooker Applesauce Without a Recipe

I realized I hadn’t done a post in awhile, but my excuse is that we moved! And, what a lot of work moving is… especially when you have a 15 month old who gets into everything.

We’ve spent a lot of the last two weeks doing yard work, and when the weather starts turning, we’ll […]

Triple Berry Cereal

Confession time: I used to be a cereal addict. Seriously, I would eat cereal for at least one meal or snack a day! I think I was actually addicted to the sugar, but man, could I put away some cereal and milk. At my bridal shower, I even got a box full of like 20 […]
