Homemade Applesauce

Look at those GoRgEoUs apples! Sometimes it’s nice to have a super simple, comforting recipe. Like now, with all of the craziness that comes with the holiday season! If you have never made homemade applesauce before, then I highly recommend it! It’s so simple, with just two ingredients and the flavor can’t be beat! I […]

Banana Coconut Macadamia Bread

I make A LOT of baked goods with bananas. I love the natural sweetness, texture, and moistness bananas give…not to mention the yummy flavor. This banana bread has all the right flavors and textures to make it a superstar banana bread! Coconut is used in 5 different applications here to make this bread a tropical […]

Date Truffles

If you’re like me, a quick snack is frequently on my mind. I graze throughout the day and need fuel! Dates are a perfect snack in so many ways. They are high in potassium, fiber, and other vitamins and minerals – a wonderful pre-workout snack! One of my favorite “treats” is to take a Medjool […]

Banana Quinoa Bread

Banana Bread. The sound of it just brings me comfort. What about you? This is another favorite treat I relished as a child. I remember the recipe my Mom would make started with butter and sugar of course, so this bread needed a makeover! You will love this recipe, which contains plenty of fiber, sweetness, […]

There are different varieties of peanuts and I personally like Virginia peanuts or Jungle peanuts. I have used raw peanuts, […]

Pear Oat and Walnut Muffins

Let me introduce you to this delicious fall muffin. This muffin recipe is a result of over-buying pears on my part! I love pears, but when they all ripen at the same rate I get scrambling in the kitchen to use them up before they go bad! I decided that pears, oats, and walnuts were […]

Banana, Cranberry, Pecan Muffins

I really love muffins. I really do. I eat muffins almost daily as a snack or with a cup of tea or slathered with some sort of nut butter or fruit spread. There are so many options with muffins…that’s probably why I like them so much – never the same muffin. This recipe began with […]

Spinach Artichoke Dip
