Fall Crisp

I made this little bit of deliciousness a couple of weeks ago and posted it on my Instagram account, but I have been slow on getting it here on my blog. Before the crisp autumn mornings give way to a winter wonderland here in Utah, I must share! This recipe is perfect on it’s own, […]

Breaded Shrimp Recipe

What is it about appetizers or finger food that is so enticing to me?  Anyone else?  I am like a moth to a flame when it comes to bite-sized foods. I would be fine making meals out of appetizers for the rest of my life. So freaking good.  On that note….here is one more appetizer […]

Sweet and Savory Meatballs

Here is another appetizer idea for you to try out this weekend. Just like my hummus recipe, tuck this one away to use all year round. In fact, this is one of my favorite appetizers for a Christmas party, as it is ALWAYS a hit!  My teenage son also eats these for an afternoon snack, […]

Homemade Nutella Recipe

Twenty years ago I had the opportunity to spend a month in Germany after I graduated from high school. I have very fond memories of that month of visiting castles, touring concentration camps, driving through the beautiful country side, attending a German high school, living with a German family, forming relationships with my travel companions, […]

Easy Homemade Granola Bars

I was having a discussion a few weeks ago with a friend about her desire to find a granola bar recipe to replace the store bought granola bars she was currently buying for her kids. The challenge was to find a recipe that was easy and not loaded with excessive amounts of sugar. The challenge […]

Nutty Butter Popcorn Recipe

My mom makes Nutty Butter Popcorn every year beginning at Halloween and continuing through the New Year. It's delicious. It's gooey. And I love it. But I can't stop eating it when I'm at her house! (ask my sisters..I have been found scraping the carmel off the bottom of the bowl with a spoon). I knew this [...]

The “Stevie” Drink

I posted a picture on Instagram (@trishallen) of my favorite Stevie Drink this week and had lots of requests for the simple recipe. I figured I’d post it here on the blog so it was archived. Let me introduce you to, YOUR favorite new drink…summer or winter, it is still a favorite.

Fruit Pizza

Summer! Summer! Summer! I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am that the warmer weather is here (to stay, I hope…)  I have always felt like Memorial Day weekend is the official kick-off for summer. It marks the day to bring out the flip-flops, bust out the swimming suit, take part of […]

Turkey Muffins

Recipe inspiration:  Jamie Eason and a recipe from my sweet coach, Sandy. Yes, yes, I know….”turkey” and “muffins” should NOT be used together. I get it. It’s like taco ice cream or meatloaf cookies. Gross. But believe me, these grab-n-go muffins are the real deal!  They are going down as one of my favorite lunches. […]

Healthy Deviled Eggs

Easter is this weekend, and I must admit, this is one holiday that I get a bit nostalgic. My parents always do a Easter picnic in the mountains surrounding my childhood home. We would go hiking, have a cookout, hide Easter eggs, shoot clay pigeons or pop cans, and eat yummy food made by my […]

Butter Cakes

I am a sucker for peanut butter. Given the opportunity (and an extreme lack of self control), I could eat an entire jar with a spoon. In one sitting. It is no surprise that my favorite snacks involve this nutty goodness. One snack that I could literally eat every single day for the rest of […]

Gorilla Poop Recipe

Now before you wrinkle your nose up and tell me  how utterly gross I am, take a look at this picture and tell me the first thing that comes to mind… See… Gorilla Poop. But don’t let the “potty-mouth” name fool you. This little pile of ooey-gooey goodness is pretty much my most favorite snack right now, […]
