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 . . .

Ever since I was a kid I have loved fruit leather, fruit roll ups, fruit by the foot, and fruit snacks. So when I learned I could make my own with 2 or 3 ingredients I was pretty darn excited.

My kids eat it up so fast and I don't feel guilty one bit. Fruit leathers are easy to make in the . . .
I want to introduce you all to a little BIG product Des and I have been working on. Summertime is the ultimate season for snacking. We spend countless hours at the beach, at the park, camping, in the car during a long road trip, or lazily lounging in front of the TV. So instead of turning to your usual pint of ice cream, bag of potato chips, and sugar fruit snacks - we wanted to create a series of tasty, fun, and HEALTHY snacks like these apple chips for you and your family to enjoy this . . .

My mom buys a chicken salad from a store called Great Harvest up in Utah. I always look forward to eating that stuff. It is simple and delicious. If you're like me, you don't like crunchy celery or onions in your chicken salad - and the Great Harvest chicken salad is free from any unwanted crunch. Well... we don't have a Great Harvest where I live and occasionally I get a craving for that yummy salad. So - I decided to take a stab at re-creating it, and I think it's pretty darn . . .

I have been known to like a little kick to my food. I love a burst of flavor and a little heat. The first time I had arrabbiata sauce was while I was in college and working at Olive Garden. I was pretty much in heaven. I loved that sweet tomato paired with the spicy crushed red pepper. Since then I have ordered this sauce at numerous restaurants and always enjoyed every last bite.
