Colorful Raw Veggie “Tacos”: Lettuce “Taco Shells”, Topped with Hummus, Broccoli and Carrot Slaw, Cucumbers, Sweet Peppers, and Rainbow Carrots, Drizzled with a Spicy Chipotle Sauce

My boyfriend’s exact words after giving him one of these was “Why are you trying to disguise the fact this is actually just a salad?”, followed by: “These are actually pretty good!” Hahaha! That definitely made me laugh. I like to get a bit creative with my food options, especially when it comes to incorporating…

Dark Chocolate Chickpea, Tahini and Peanut Butter Candy Easter Eggs: Chickpeas, Tahini, Peanut Butter, Maple Syrup, Almond Extract and Vanilla Extract, Blended to Creamy Perfection and Dipped in Dark Chocolate

I was never a huge “candy lover”. In fact, growing up my brother would end up eating most (if not all) of my candy because I showed minimal interest in it. Which is surprising, because I do have a HUGE sweet tooth – hand me any dessert and I’m there. One candy I did enjoy…

Bright Rainbow Bell Pepper Brunch: Eggs Over Easy in Bell Pepper Slices, Topped with Fontina Cheese and Sprinkled with Black Pepper and Parsley, Drizzled with Hot Sauce, and Served with Seed Toast

Spring is (technically) here, but it doesn’t feel like it! Especially with another snow storm making its way through (we are NINE inches and counting so far here!).

If you are going to make anything this weekend to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, make this Hunter’s Pie. Granted, I know most of you will not have ground venison on hand (I can thank my Dad for that), but there are many other meats you can substitute or you can even do a meatless version!…

Dad’s Famous Pancakes (or, as he calls them, “Dadcakes”): Whole Wheat Pancake Mix, Stuffed with Fresh Blueberries, Pecan Pieces and Light Brown Sugar, Topped with Whipped Cream and Maple Syrup

My family has come a LONG way in our pancake game – for many years, we used the “shake” containers and just added water. In the past few years though, along with a change in eating habits and food preferences in general, we started experimenting. Especially my Dad. I rarely order pancakes out (I don’t…

Overnight Chocolate Cherry Muesli: Muesli Mix Soaked in Milk and Cocoa Powder, Topped with Black Cherries, Sweet Cherry Preserves, Dried Sour Cherries, Walnuts and Chocolate Chips

One week until VALENTINE’S DAY!!! Yes, I know, it’s a corny holiday. But it’s a great way to spread love to people you care about! And what better way to do that then surprising a significant other, partner, husband, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, friend, family member (really whoever!) with a sweet breakfast treat! I was first introduced…
