Honey Sesame Chicken

Do you ever fall into the “dinner rut” at your house?  You make and eat the same 5 meals over and over and over again? Yeah…we fall into this rut quite often at our hose. {I bet my 5 meals are similar to your 5 meals.} Well, if you’re in your dinner rut again, try […]

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, […]

Zesty Yams

Since my last 2 posts have both been about yams, I think it is safe to assume that I am a little “yam crazy” right now. And why not?  They are so delicious, and I love playing with new ways to flavor/season them. This new one is like a complete opposite from the sweet tasting […]

Chicken Cordon Bleu Recipe

I tried this Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe a couple of weeks ago with my own family and with 2 of my clients/friends.  Thumbs up all around!  But really…who doesn’t love melted cheese and ham wrapped in a seasoned breaded chicken? Um. We all do. Serve with rice and a roasted veggie, and you have yourself a winner!

Brownie Overnight Oats

Who says you can’t have breakfast for dessert? Overnight oats in general are like dessert to me, and I am borderline obsession when it comes to these. Just type in “overnight oats” in the search bar and several variations will come up.  All of the variations are delicious, but THIS variation really is dessert. Chocolate. Walnuts. More […]

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, […]

Chicken Corn Chowder

It's cold here in Utah. Bone-chilling cold. This weather makes me want to drink hot cocoa all day long, stay curled up by the fire, cook all my meals in a crock pot, and have all of those meals be some variation of soup.  Is that so much to ask?  Our crock pot is out [...]

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 […]

Homemade Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese

I served mine up with a brown rice tortilla quesadilla made with chicken and mozzarella cheese. As soon as it turns cold in Utah (which is always sooner than I'm ready for), I declare it tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich weather! There is nothing better than sitting in front of the fireplace, snuggled in a blanket, [...]

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 [...]

Peach Raspberry Overnight Oat Recipes

 I have a little obsession with overnight oats recipes, so I jump at any chance I have to try a different variation.  Since fresh peaches and raspberries are in season right now (and I think they make a beautiful duo), I tested them out this morning. Happy mama Peach Raspberry Overnight Oat Recipes approved!  If you haven't tried this [...]
