Easy Roasted Chickpeas

Easy Roasted Chickpeas are a great snack to eat right off the pan, or to store in the fridge as part of your weekly meal prep! Roasted chickpeas are taking over my kitchen and I’m not sad about it! We are in love with this simple dish and make multiple batches a week. I was in a major snack rut last month and I asked the folks on Instagram for help. A friend mentioned they snacked on roasted chickpeas and a little light went off! I use them in main dish meals, but I hadn’t thought about eating them plain Continue Reading →

Today I’m partnering with California Avocados and I’m so excited! I very literally am the one who contacted them and asked if they’d like to work together. I am an avocado lover and I know that California Avocados are in season right now, so it only make sense that we meet in the middle to bring you all one easy, healthy, party-perfect Grilled Corn and Avocado Salad. This. Is. Summer! I adore avocados for so many reasons. I love that they have over 20 vitamins and minerals, including those great B vitamins (help fight infection/disease), folate (used for cell repair), and Continue Reading →

Grilled Corn and Avocado Salad

I love fruit salsa! There’s something magical about the sweet, spicy, savory, and salty flavors all mixed together into one amazing dish. Pineapple salsa is always a favorite at our house because pineapples seem to be pretty available and sweet whenever we want them. My kids also happen to love pineapple, which means I pick one up pretty often for them to eat. I really like using pineapple for fruit salsa because it’s so acidic naturally, kind of like a tomato, that it just transitions into salsa really well. I like to add sweet colored bell peppers for some color, Continue Reading →

Few things are more perfect than crusty pieces of bread topped with delicious things. Bruschetta, crostini, tiny crunchy toasts – no matter what you call them, they are delicious! Today I’m working with Sabra again (pinch me! I love working with with this great company!), and I have dreamed up the most delicious crostinis ever – Mexican guacamole bruschetta! This is going to be the talked about appetizer or dish at your 4th of July cookout. Make it! This simple but perfect finger-food is buttered baguettes, grilled to perfection, grilled blistered sweet corn, Sabra’s new Veggie Fusions South-Western Guacamole, a Continue Reading →

Zucchini boats are one of my favorite summer dishes when zuchinni is little, tender, and just coming out of the garden. I make this dish with all kinds of things like a rice and hamburger mixture, taco ingredients, and even pizza ingredients. Today I’m sharing the simplest way to make a zucchini boat. It also happens to be one of my favorites. This simple side is sure to please just about any crowd, and you can’t beat how it practically makes itself. Just be sure to find nice young, tender, and not too big zucchini. Super huge zucchini are inevitable Continue Reading →

Zucchini Boats with Tomatoes and Fresh Mozzarella

A few months ago I discovered the best/simplest/easiest way to incorporate more vegetables in our day and I have to to tell you about it. I feel like I do a pretty good job at feeding my family healthy food while retaining a good balance. My kids are well rounded when it comes to food and I really like that. They love fresh peas and tomatoes from the garden and they love when we make cookies together. Sometimes though I think I’m the only one eating the vegetables that I make for dinner and the rest of the family is filling Continue Reading →

The Life Changing Magic of the Veggie Box

In my weekly meeting with Cassie from Wholefullys we have talked time and time again about what is most important when it comes to all aspects of our online businesses and blogs. Time and time again we have come back to the idea that it’s most important for us to be as useful to you, dear reader, as we can be. Killer recipes, slices of real life, and helpful posts on different things are a great start and I’ve been doing that for years. I think there’s a lot of power in giving you a lot of bang for your Continue Reading →

While we were making them I posted a picture on Instagram and I got such great feedback that I figured I better post them today so that you all could have the recipe over the weekend! Who knew that using a few natural ingredients could turn out so delicious. These have peanut butter, a few tablespoons of maple syrup (which you Continue Reading →

There’s so much to love about this recipe for Parmesan Pretzel Bites with Parmesan Dipping Sauce. Homemade soft pretzels are one of my favorite foods and they are so much fun to make with kids! I made these last week with my two little boys and it was a lot of fun. The best part though, we got to eat our fun! I’m so excited to be posting today. My computer has been in the shop for the last 12 days. I bought a laptop the night I dropped my computer off, planning to work from the laptop, but it didn’t Continue Reading →

Easy Chicken Skillet Nachos Easy Chicken Skillet Nachos are as tasty as the pictures look friends! I am working with Sabra (you know, the hummus folks) today and I’m so excited! I made this recipe with football, parties, and entertaining in mind. I love these easy skillet nachos for a few reasons. One, they are delicious and they look fabulous. Two, they take very little time to make which makes them perfect for a party. Three, who doesn’t love nachos!?! They are a total crowd pleaser. Making a huge batch of nachos in a skillet means that you can serve Continue Reading →

Bean dip is my jam. I love the stuff. My mom has been whipping up her amazing bean dip to take to parties and family functions for as long as I can remember, and I find myself making it again and again. It’s super easy, it travels well, and who doesn’t like a creamy cheesy bean dip?! Appetizers and finger foods are in high demand this time of year and I’ve got just the recipe for you today. There are two secrets for making a truly amazing bean dip. First, you season and then whip the beans. Whip ’em, whip Continue Reading →

Not Yo Mama’s Bean Dip

Yesterday I was feeling antsy about the kids and their illness. I’ve been a mom for just over eight years and I have five kids. That’s not forever but I feel like I have seen my fair share of illness and have a pretty good handle on what is normal and what is not. I’m an excellent “we’ll ride this out” mom. Years of experience have taught me that most issues will work themselves out with enough time, a little pain or fever relief if needed, and plenty of warm baths and stories on my lap. Today will mark four Continue Reading →

Maple Candied Pecans (Naturally Sweetened)

Today I’m sharing one of our all time favorite dressing/sauces and I can’t wait for you to taste it. You can really put it on everything, so I dubbed it the Put-it-on-All the Things Cilantro Ranch Dressing and Sauce. Clever, huh? I’ll make a double batch of this stuff and we go through it fast. Here’s some of the things that we’ll put it on. I’ll replace the enchilada sauce in a recipe with it and bake it right on top of the enchiladas or we’ll make smothered burritos in a similar way. It’s excellent as a salad dressing and Continue Reading →

Put-it-on-Allthethings Cilantro Ranch Dressing and Sauce

Roasted Red Pepper Hummus is my snack right now. I love the sweetness of the peppers with all that creamy savory hummus goodness. It’s fabulous with fresh veggies, but let’s be honest, I love it best with homemade pita chips or even just tortilla chips. I’ve even been using it as a mayo of sorts in my sandwiches. I would spend tons of money on hummus every month if our grocery store carried it. I love it! Sabra’s Roasted Pine Nut is my all-time favorite and I just tried the hummus quartet from Trader Joe’s and it was great too. Continue Reading →

Pomegranate Mango Salsa has me drooling over here! My friend Emily from One Lovely Life is here today sharing an amazing, fresh, and healthy recipe. Take it away, Emily! I love this time of year! Fresh starts, healthy food, and so many beautiful things to eat! I can’t get enough of pomegranate these days. Knowing that the season winds down at the end of this month makes me all the more eager to fit in pomegranate any way I can. This season, I’ve been adding it to my favorite savory dishes (like this rice), and it’s been so fun to learn Continue Reading →

Pomegranate Mango Salsa

Christmas Eve is all about the appetizers and finger foods in our family. It’s a fun and easy way for everyone to bring a few little things and no one to be stuck in the kitchen all day. When your family owns the grocery store in town (and lots of them work there too), days like Christmas Eve are busy at the store. No one has time to make a huge formal Christmas Eve dinner. Plus, when you have a bunch of different dishes, there’s something everyone loves and eats. That’s a nice perk when you have a lot of Continue Reading →

Leftover Turkey Taquitos

Ham and Cheese Pinwheels are a family favorite this time of year. They are quick and easy and perfect to take to a party or snack on while watching Elf. This recipe come from my dear friend Katie. I worked for Katie’s mom in high school at their family deli, but she was a few years older than me and I wouldn’t say that we were really friends then. I’m not even sure how it happened, but sometimes when we were both in college at BYU, we clicked and spent many hours together after that. Katie moved me into apartments, Continue Reading →

Quick and Easy Hot Ham and Cheese Pinwheels

These Five Minute Ranch Crackers are so very easy and so very addicting. I promise you won’t be able to stop at just one handful. I grew up with a huge extended family near me and I loved it! In my small graduating class of 68 people, two were my cousins. My dad is one of thirteen, and many of his siblings chose to have big families too. Lucky for me, we all grew up in the same tiny town in Southern Indiana. How does a family that big celebrate Christmas? By renting out some kind of large building and Continue Reading →

5 Minute Ranch Crackers

Slow Cooker Honey Teriyaki Meatballs are sweet and savory, without being spicy. And the best part? You get to eat the meatballs with a toothpick. Bed sheets, an old teddy bear robe, and sunglasses… those are the things our annual Nativity reenactment is made of. Every year on Christmas Eve, we gather at Thomas’ parents’ house for a finger food/appetizer dinner, followed by a reading of Luke 2. It’s not just a reading mind you, it’s a full-on family production of the Nativity, costumes included. This tradition is light-hearted and a memory maker, but it still keeps the true spirit Continue Reading →

Slow Cooker Honey Teriyaki Meatballs

Honey Roasted Pumpkin Seeds are a healthy naturally sweetened way to enjoy those little gems that you just dug out of your jack-o-lantern. Or if you plan on cooking a few pumpkins using the perfect method I showed you yesterday, you’ll have the seeds to enjoy too. Between scooping out the seeds for roasting and the flesh for cooking, I used practically the whole pumpkin. What little skin and pulp was left made for a tasty chicken treat. I think it’s fun when everything has a purpose and very little waste is created! I love roasted pumpkin seeds because I Continue Reading →

It’s that time of the month! 12 bloggers, 12 recipes, 12 ingredients or less. This months theme is appetizers which very easily could be read as “football food” this time of the year. Whether you are watching the big game or not, this list of appetizers is sure to please. Check out all of the links at the bottom of the post for the rest of the recipes. To the horror of many, we don’t watch football; not college, not pro, not high school (our school is so little we don’t even have a football team). And to make matters Continue Reading →

Avocado Bruschetta and other awesome tailgating recipes

Pickle lovers unite! You will fall off your chair when you read this recipe and see just how easy it is to pickle banana peppers at home. No need to can, just pour the brine over the prepared peppers and stick them in the fridge. The best part? They last for months. I love all things pickles and pickled banana peppers top my list. They are excellent on sandwiches, including hot grilled ham and cheese, perfect for salads, and I’d be a fibbing if I said I didn’t eat them straight out of the jar late at night. They are Continue Reading →

Quick and Easy Refrigerator Pickled Banana Peppers

It’s already the 12th of August, which means it’s time for the fun group of 12 bloggers I work with to post a recipe with 12 ingredients or less. Today is all about easy after school snacks! This should make that transition into the school year that much easier. Today I’m talking popcorn. Did you know that you can pop popcorn kernels in a brown paper bag in the microwave?! I sure didn’t until this spring. I’ve always used an air-popper to pop popcorn and mine stopped working. We are total popcorn nuts and I was desperate to find a solution Continue Reading →

How to Pop Popcorn in a Brown Paper Bag in the Microwave (I bet you didn’t know you could do this!)

The best blender salsa recipe using canned tomatoes, fresh onion, cilantro, and peppers. While I’m waiting anxiously for my tomatoes to ripen I’ve been making and eating this salsa like it’s my job. This is my very favorite quick and easy blender salsa recipe that uses canned tomatoes. Canned tomatoes are such a great option in cooking when the garden ones aren’t quiet ready because they were actually picked and processed when the tomatoes were ripe. They win over those mealy store-bought tomatoes any day, especially in salsa. This salsa is perfect for all things party because it makes a Continue Reading →

Cheese Cake Dip - 4 ingredients and 5 minutes never tasted so good!

Happy Holiday Weekend Friends! The 4th of July is so much fun in our tiny town. The town hosts a free pancake breakfast in the morning, a parade, games and slip-n-slide at the town park, and a pie eating contest (that I get to help judge! Dreams DO come true!). My sister, new brother-in-law, and a friend are coming to stay, Thomas’s family is in town, and it’s my sweet mother-in-laws birthday. A great and totally crazy weekend is heading my way. If you are like me you have a million reasons/events/social gatherings that you could bring something to this Continue Reading →

Cheese Cake Dip – 4 ingredients and 5 minutes never tasted so good!

A few days before we left for Kentucky the folks from the California Avocado Commission sent me some gorgeous avocados in the mail. There was no way that I was going to let those beauties go bad while we were at my mom’s and I just couldn’t bring myself to give them away so we packed them across the country with us… the obvious solution right?! We made all kinds of guacamole and avocado toast at my mom’s and loved every minute of it. Thomas and I are huge avocado lovers and these were just perfect. Avocados are in season right Continue Reading →

Spring has sprung! And I have a Spring Snack Mix that is going to put a little hop in your step (get it… hop, bunnies, spring!) I’m so pleased to be participating in the 12 bloggers fun this month because the recipes look amazing and it’s just in time for Easter and spring. This group is 12 fun bloggers, sharing 12 recipes, 12 ingredients or less. Now that is a lot of joy in one post if you ask me. My recipe isn’t much of a recipe today, more of an idea, but I know you’ll like it. We aren’t Continue Reading →

Spring Snack Mix

Today’s recipe is a quick and easy raspberry cheesecake dip. It has five ingredients and takes less than five minutes to whip together. Yes, please! I’m always on the hunt for quick and easy recipes to take to baby showers, lunch at a friend’s, parties, or cook-outs and this recipes fits the bill. It tastes amazing and you can serve it with whatever you have in the house. We loved it with these butter waffle cookies, but it would also be perfect with graham crackers, animal crackers, vanilla wafers, or even fruit. The choice is yours. So the next time Continue Reading →

Raspberry Cheesecake Dip

Healthy snacking just got tastier! I adore hummus in all shapes and sizes, so when a whole case of it showed up on my doorstep last week I was over the moon. My kids, husband, and I gobbled up 2 whole containers in about 10 minutes and there isn’t much left in the fridge now. The fine folks at Sabra sent the box my way and they have also agreed to send not one, but two of you a case of hummus of your very own. Best. Day. EVER! Just enter below. And to go with such a fun giveaway Continue Reading →

Healthy Black Bean Dip – it’s a recipe that you need in your life and one that I’ve been holding out on you for months… years almost! I’ve been making this recipe for a long long time and I’ve even had these pictures taken and edited for months. It just happened to get pushed to the bottom of the queue and forgotten about. Friends, I’m so glad that this recipe made it back to the top again! These beans are so quick and easy, healthy, full of fiber, and just stinkin’ delicious. We love these beans and I have some Continue Reading →

If you’ve read much of my blog then you know that I adore Cassie over at Wholefully. She’s a fellow Hoosier (I lived there for 19 of my 28 years of life and will forever consider myself a Hoosier!), a very inspiring blogger, a great writer, and her recipes are amazing. I have tried gobs and gobs of recipes from her blog and they always turn out great. When she announced she was working on a cookbook I got really excited! Tons of Cassie recipes all in one place?! In a glorious printed, real paper, bound book!? A dream come Continue Reading →

Cooking with Greek Yogurt Giveaway!

Healthy is so in right now at my house! I am knee-deep in a really fun and well thought out 8 week health challenge and I am loving it! It isn’t uncommon for me to be super healthy for a full two weeks at a time (no sugar, no white flour… that really does cut out a ton of foods!), but 8 weeks is a lot lot longer! So I’ve had to plan, prepare, and add a few new tricks to my plan. And you know what, it’s working. I’m a week in and I’ve lost 4 pounds. It’s all Continue Reading →

3 Ingredient Healthy Fruit Dip

Quesadillas that will knock your socks off and a chance to win an i-pad mini equal a pretty great day in my book! First up those quesadillas… I’m guest posting today over at Lil’ Luna with some amazing Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas. They are the after effects of making those oh-so-tasty stuffed bell peppers a few weeks ago. You guys, they are amazing! A little more prep than your average cheese and tortilla concoction, but so worth the effort. The recipe won’t be showing up here, so if you want it, pop over to Lil’ Luna and get it.

Amazing Quesadillas and an i-pad Mini Giveaway!

Having a huge garden is awesome when the tilling, planting, weeding, watering, weeding, and more weeding start to mean gobs of fresh vegetables for me to use. It seems like such a labor of love for months and then all of the sudden you are rewarded for your hard work. That reward is beginning for me and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m currently harvesting green beans by the gallon, basil, zucchini, yellow summer squash, and cucumbers. I’m just chomping at the bit for tomatoes, peppers, and sweet corn to ripen. Here’s what we had for dinner last night: sautéed Continue Reading →

Quick Pickled Cucumbers – Refrigerator Pickles

Eating Clean isn’t rocket science, it’s planning! If you want to feed your family well but aren’t sure where to start, this is the post for you. I have a whole food approach to eating that the whole family will love, no health food store needed. This meal plan is something that I cycle through. We try to eat by my 80/20 rule (more on that at the bottom of the post) but when I feel like we are getting lazy or have had too many treats and cheat meals (read long weekends, holidays, vacations,and birthday parties) then I’ll stick to Continue Reading →

Eating Clean Meal Plan: Spring/Summer Menu

Mmmm. Tater chips. I’d be a liar if I said I didn’t love a good potato chip as much as the rest of the world. Lots of you know that eating clean is important to me and something I try to do more often than not (about 80% of the time actually…) And when it comes to healthy eating potato chips aren’t the first thing that come to mind. Let me revamp your thinking on that. When I was presented with the chance to blog about Kettle Brand Chips I thought about it for a while. I like potato chips Continue Reading →

Loaded Baked Potato Dip with Kettle Brand Chips

Mother’s Day is one of my favorite holidays of the year. Our wedding anniversary, Christmas, and my birthday are all within three weeks of each other so it’s pretty hard to celebrate them well and individually.  Cue Mother’s Day. It’s like all those other holidays done right in May. I love it! My family spoiled me this year, as always. Thomas made me egg, ham, and cheese breakfast sandwiches in the morning and then we had a family cook-out for dinner after church. Thomas also promised to do dishes for year (and then he gave me a case of paper Continue Reading →

The Best and Easiest Fruit Dip Recipe

mini phyllo cups

Thomas is teaching a training course in Provo this week and we are headed up to meet him and do some fun “big city” things like ice skating, a dollar movie, and some major thirfting. I am in terrible need of dressers, a bench for my kitchen table, and some other furniture. I sure hope the Thrift Store Gods will smile down on me. Major scores for me also mean major furniture painting posts for you, so it’s a win win situation really. While I’m out and about you can be planning your Super Bowl party or fancy Valentine’s dinner Continue Reading →

Homemade Mini Phyllo Cups

Cheese ball season is here! Are you as excited as I am?! A few weeks ago I did a cheese ball making demonstration for the ladies at church and it was a big hit. We got to eat all of the wares with lunch and I was in cheese ball heaven. My love of cheese balls came from my first job working at a deli in Columbus, Indiana. Two of the cheese ball recipes are actually from that deli and I’ve been making them for years. The other two are just as amazing (cue the bacon). I actually made mini Continue Reading →

Very Merry Cheese Ball Recipes

Naaachoooo! Oh, you knew I had to go there. Yesterday’s recipe for those seriously perfect oven fries can only be improved with nacho cheese sauce to dip them in. What isn’t improved by nacho cheese, really? Plan on making the fries and the nacho cheese for some post-Thanksgiving snacking while the family is still in town. They’ll be impressed with your healthier take on drive-in food, and you won’t even tell them how easy it was to whip up. Happy Turkey Day all. Eat to your heart’s content; we’ll get back to health and moderation on Monday! Nacho Cheese Sauce Adapted from Continue Reading →

Nacho Cheese Sauce

Good morning, all! It’s only about 5:30 am here in Utah, but I needed an early start to a fun day. My middle baby turns three today! I was up last night decorating the house (it’s amazing the joy a sign, streamers, and balloons bring to a kid), and now I’m getting all my computer things done. I had to wake up early so that I can beat that early riser out of bed, just to see the look on his face when he comes upstairs. It’s been a long week, and I’m looking forward to a fun day with Continue Reading →

The Best Caramel Dip

My house is a wreck, a complete and utter wreck. We just got back from our drive across the country to visit my family in Kentucky and Indiana, and now it looks like the contents of my car barfed all over the living room and kitchen. On top of all of the travel unpacking, I didn’t have any food in the house so I had to go to the store this morning; what empty space that was left is now filled with bags, boxes, and melons. Oh me, oh my. I had an amazing trip and will share some of the Continue Reading →

Mini Baked Corn Dogs

There is some serious cabinet drama going on here; what a mess. We are so close to getting a real kitchen in though. I can hardly wait. I feel like Christmas is on the way, but I don’t know what day it is actually coming. It’s exciting but frustrating to not know what to expect all at the same time. Oh life with a real kitchen, what will it even be like? I’m going to go ahead and assume that I’m going to love it. Just. Can’t. Wait! Here is the last recipe in my Cafe Rio-inspired collection. This dressing is Continue Reading →

Chunky Fresh Tomato Salsa recipe

Today is a busy, busy day. You too? I’m watching my friend’s kids for the day and will have six children all under the age of four. Fun, but busy. Our kids are the same ages within a few weeks; there are two kids who are four, two who are two, and two who are one or almost one. That is like having three sets of twins. Whoa! Speaking of busy, I’ve been busy remaking and taking new pictures of recipes that I have in my index. I started blogging about food a few years ago just to keep track of Continue Reading →

Chunky Fresh Tomato Salsa

Homemade baked corn tortilla chips is a recipe you are going to make again and again! One of the best parts of eating at a Mexican restaurant is the warm chips and salsa while you wait for the entree. These chips are just what you’re wanting and more! 3 ingredients and 20 minutes is all you need. They are easy and healthy (baked, not fried) and I promise they won’t disappoint. We love tortilla chips; we eat them all the time. I make my kids bean dip for lunch 2 or 3 times a week and they love plain chips for a snack. They Continue Reading →

Homemade Baked Corn Tortilla Chips

After a weekend of indulgence I’m always ready to get back to our normal eating. I normally plan on veggie-heavy meals for at least 3 days after we come home from Grandma’s. The In-laws own a grocery store which is fun and awful at the same time. I can make whatever I want, but at the same time the house is always loaded with junk, junk, and more junk (we aren’t the only ones bringing things home from the store!) Mexican is one of our favorite types of food and an easy one to get lots of vegetables in. So Continue Reading →

Restaurant-Style Salsa

I had a dozen or so of fresh persimmons a little while ago and they just weren’t amazing. They were OK, but not great. We didn’t really want to eat them plain, so I decided to use them in salsa. This turned out surprisingly good! It came together just like a peach or mango salsa. I like fruit salsas with chicken or seafood tacos.If I would have had a little red bell pepper I would have added that! It would be super pretty with a touch of red.Persimmon SalsaPrintable Recipe4-5 persimmons, skin removed and chopped1/4 cup chopped cilantro1 lime, juiced1/3 cup finely chopped Continue Reading →
