Strawberry Banana Green Smoothie

Green smoothies have been my jam lately. Back up. This green smoothie has been my jam lately.  It’s the only one I am in love with so I’ll stick to what I know thank you. I personally have always been a little freaked out by veggies in my smoothies.  Smoothies are supposed to be sweet and taste like fruity icecream minus the loads of calories so why would I want to put spinach in mine.…

Spaghetti Squash with Marinara Sauce

A few days ago I told you I could pretty much count on one hand how many times I’ve cooked in the last few weeks.  One of the things I have been cooking like crazy is spaghetti squash.  Have you tried?  I’m not sure what took me so long to jump on this bandwagon but man oh man, I just can’t get enough!  And I am here to turn you into a spaghetti squash lover…

Grilled Peanut Butter & Jelly

Earlier at work this week, I was making myself a peanut butter and jelly sandwich (because some morning you just have to grab the two jars and a loaf of bread and run out the door).  My boss saw me and asked if I ever have tried it grilled.  Needless to say, my answer was no but I was completely intrigued and couldn’t stop thinking about it for the rest of the day.  Last night…

Easy Infused Water Recipes

 In lieu of my first goal for January, to drink 80 ounces of water a day, I have had to find motivators to make myself drink this much other than a pretty water bottle and washi tape to track how much I’m drinking.  This is where infused water has come in.  It’s been a life saver and is soooooo refreshing!  It has me craving more every time  I finish a glass (and believe me, this…

Sparkling Cranberries

A few years back, one of my girlfriends introduced me to this recipe. Ever since then, I have been convinced that this recipe needs to be a staple of every holiday spread. They twinkle among the holiday lights and lend a beautiful color to your table. Another great thing is the way they pop in your mouth. You can actually hear them make a pop as you bite into this sweet and savory goodness. I’m…

Fried Honey Bananas

First off I apologize for the crummy phone picture but it’s all I had at the time so it will have to do. You might remember last week when I left a link to these incredible looking fried bananas.  Well I couldn’t get them off my mind and I made them for a snack a few days ago. My mouth is watering already.  First off, my house smelled magnificent with the cinnamon banana aroma but…

The Best Apple Crisp You’ve Ever …

Everywhere you look, fall is officially in full swing with apples and pumpkins and flannels all over the place.  We recently held what was going to be our last bonfire of the season but just ended up being a cookout since it rained and I made apple crisp for dessert. Everyone seemed to love it and it tasted so cozy and warm with just a little vanilla ice-cream on the side. Mmmm…if this recipe doesn’t…
