Apple and Fennel Salad

The perfect crunchy, nutritious, and filling treat as the weather starts to cool down. I can’t believe this is my final recipe of the Taproot Farm Summer CSA season. For those of you who have followed along, made my recipes, and shared feedback, thank you so much! I am greatly looking forward to the next 7…

Healthy Baked Carrot Cake Oatmeal: A Blend of Steel-Cut Oats, Whole Milk, Shredded Carrots, Raisins, Walnuts, Honey, Coconut Sugar and Vanilla Extract, Topped with a Sweet Cream Cheese Glaze

  Easter…bunnies…carrot cake? It kind of all goes together! This healthy baked carrot cake oatmeal will definitely hit the spot any time of the year – especially if you are a carrot cake lover like me. Although I would LOVE to have cake for breakfast every day, this is a pretty terrific alternative! I researched some…

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…

Savory Ham and Cheddar Puff Pastry Swirls: Buttery Puff Pastry, Stuffed with Honey Mustard, Slices of Honey Maple Ham, and a Mixture of Champagne and Stoudt Cheddar, Topped with a Homemade Sweet Spicy Spread

These pastries remind me of summer mornings at the beach. There is an adorable French pastry shop at Rehoboth Beach I always make a point of going to when I’m in the area, and they make these INCREDIBLE ham and cheese croissants. I haven’t mastered my croissant skills (yet), but I have found a way of making…

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…
