I don't know about you but my kids love go-gurt. You know - the yogurt that comes in a tube that can be eaten without a spoon? They are perfect for school lunches, but I have an even better option for you! Make your own! Skip the artificial colors and flavors and whip up some homemade go-gurt in minutes. Zipsicle Pouches I saw these pouches on Amazon last year and knew they would be so much fun. They are great for these homemade yogurts, but they are also great for homemade otter . . .
I grew up on homemade jam. Freezer jam, canned jam. Strawberry, raspberry, apricot, peach. It was a wonderful part of my childhood and one I couldn't let my kids not experience also. Making homemade jam is one of my favorite things to do for them. I also love doing it because its so much better for my kids. I know EXACTLY whats going into their little growing bodies. It's not full of processed or preservatives. Freezer jam consists of 3 things. Fresh fruit, sugar (a preservative) and pectin . . .
I love oatmeal in just about every shape and form. The first time I tried overnight oats was on a girls trip. My friend volunteered to bring these for us for breakfast! I was so excited for a hot steaming jar of "overnight oats"...but when she handed me a chilled jar of oatmeal I was shocked! My shock quickly turned into happiness as I devoured the entire jar that morning. Smooth creamy oats, sweetened with honey, vanilla almond milk and banana. Chia seeds + our favorite toppings make . . .
Everyone has made cobbler at some point, right? We have a quick one here and a Lemon Berry one here, and today I want to add another flavor profile to your cobbler repertoire. Balsamic Berry Cobbler--it's fantastically different. One of my most favorite little kitchen gadgets is my cherry pitter. IT'S AMAZING. Pit a handful of cherries and you can pop them into your mouth and savor away without having to spit out the pits. Hello cherry heaven!!! Grab one here. If you absolutely can't stand . . .
Tis the season for candy, treats, homemade caramel apples, pie and soo many delicous goodies. Halloween especially is focused all on the candy. This candy corn fruit pizza is the perfect little treat to bring to all the halloween parties and get togethers. While this pizza isn't 100% sugar free.... at least it has fruit! and you can sub the frosting for vanilla greek yogurt! It feeds a crowd, and throws together so fast! We are collaborating with JANE for a fun #trickortreat series! You . . .
Peaches are one of the best fruits of summer, so we totally thought they deserved their own week. We've loved infusing them with earthy, basil flavors, sweet and spicy, refreshing and minty, chocolate and caramel, deep-fried, and of course, right off the tree! Try one of our new recipes this week, or any of our classics. Millions of peaches, peaches for me... Peach Frozen Custard and Brownies with Salted Dark Caramel Sauce Peach, Ricotta, and Basil Crostini Sweet and Spicy Peach and . . .
Well this dessert is going to rock your socks! Simple enough to whip up the morning before your barbecue, yet delicious enough to make everyone go back for seconds. I recently made this fresh strawberry pie for some neighbors we had over for dessert. Their cute little boy ate it up and kept asking for more. Licking his lips he said, "Oh this is good! Mom will you please get the recipe?" I was flattered of course, but then again I knew it would be good! And if your wondering if this is the . . .
Peach soup- who would have thought? The sweet simplicity of this appetizer adds a nice charm to your dinner. Peaches are such a mild delicious fruit most people enjoy them, making it just the right pre-course to your dinner. I say pre-course because wouldn't serve this as a main dish, as it very light. That it also what makes it so refreshing. This recipe calls for canned peaches but if fresh peaches are in season, I highly recommend! Give them a little sauté with some sugar to soften and . . .
We really like green smoothies in our home. I really love green smoothies in our home. We fill them full of leafy greens, fresh fruit, milk for creaminess and my kids go nuts for them. I've served them to friends who are the pickiest of eaters and even they loved them. I really feel the key to these smoothies is having sweet fresh ripe fruit. This way you don't have to add extra sugars through juices or other unhealthy sources. I am particular and shop at stores that carry really great produce. . . .
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 these sautéed apples. 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 . . .
