One of my favorite things about summer is the juicy, fresh produce. Especially from our farmer's market. ESPECIALLY those of the sugary, sweet variety. Make your simple syrup with juice, lime juice, and sugar. Sometimes I go a little overboard and buy a ton of my favorite fruit, nectarines and peaches, so the other day I busted out a cobbler for a friend I took dinner to (while I ooh'ed and ahh'ed at her new, precious little bebe). Smoothies are always wonderful with ripe fruit, but I . . .
Ok friends. I'm excited about todays post because it's personal and we have a giveaway + coupon code for you! (Head over to Instagram for giveaway details!) I'm sharing a recipe for Citrus-Infused Elderberry Juice made with the Takeya Flavor Infusion Pitcher. We have been using Takeya products for a few years now and are always impressed with the intuitive design and eco-friendly materials. Great company. They are even offering our readers 20% everything on their site! Guys thats huge! Use the . . .
None of us here at Oh So have ever really submitted to a particular diet. We like our veggies, our fruit, our cookies, our steak, we like it all in moderation. I feel confident in saying that none of us would ever give up bread. It's also safe to say that we like to make things ourselves instead of buying them when we can--and when we have the time (there are 12 1/2 littles between us). I took Des' quick french bread recipe and turned it into a crusty round of bread bursting with . . .
You heard of those everything-but-the-kitchen-sink whatevers with such-and-such? Yeah that's what this is. Healthy, easy, cleans out your fridge and stops food waste. High five, friends! I make this soup a lot during the winter months, especially between those indulgent holiday meals. Sometimes I do chicken, sausage, I throw whatever produce is going bad in there, vary the spices, it's really so forgiving! You can crock pot it all day or simmer it on the stove for about 30 . . .
Whenever I serve water at a party or holiday, I like to make it extra special. This twist on serving water is perfect for your Thanksgiving dinner. Not only is it beautiful, but your guest will love the touch of flavor that cranberries and mint add. I like to serve my water in a decorative punch bowl or a drink dispenser. That way your guest can see what they are serving themselves, and it adds to the decor. For this water I've chosen a simple punch bowl. Treat your guests and . . .
We are big apple eaters over here. They are a staple around our house. As much as we have chicken, pancakes, and bananas- we have apples. No trip to the store would be complete with out stocking up on apples. So when the girls started brain storming ideas for apple week, I knew just what I would contribute. A year or so ago I switched up our apple routine and tried sautéing them. It was so amazing! I served them over pancakes and it was a hit with the family. Because of the simplicity and . . .
Well, the holidays are among us. Crazy, right? Parties and house guests and attempts at healthy eating between the indulgences are just around the corner! I love any chance to have a filling, vegetarian meal, so while shopping at Trader Joe's, I ran across these treasures and thought they'd be perfect. Get their Feta Cheese Spread, Balela Bean Salad, and a baguette, and you have yourself the easiest, freshest little appetizer you ever did have! If you don't live near a Trader Joe's, I . . .
Sometimes you just get tired of salads and sometimes you just need some dang carbs. Am I right or am I right? Here's a quick, happy medium that'll get you the best of both worlds. How can you not feel amazing after a lunch like this?! [amd-zlrecipe-recipe:165] . . .
My 4-year-old started preschool this year, so I'm a total newbie at this lunch-making business! Over the past year I had seen others using these PlanetBoxes and I knew I had to have one once the time came for me to become a legit mom. Soccer practice started the same week, so I reached all sorts of crazy levels of mommy hood that I'd never done before! I love the safety of stainless steel, the absence of plastic baggies (cost and environmental reasons), how easy it is to clean, how organized it . . .
Breakfast is easily one of my most favorite meals of the day, except I could have it all day. Biscuits and gravy, waffles, bacon, hashbrowns, fruit, cinnamon rolls, eggs, doughnuts, it is all sodang good. Sometimes I need a hearty meal in the a.m. instead of my usual toast, oatmeal or smoothie, or sometimes breakfast is calling my name for dinner! Throw in some sauteéd veggies and homemade salsa and you've got an amazing start to your day. I have Pioneer Woman's salsa recipe memorized . . .
