Millet Bread

One of the breads my dad always loved most when I started work at a whole grain bakery was this raisin millet bread. I’ve always loved it as well, but for some reason I haven’t made it in several years? My husband was so excited to see it coming out of…

Creole Chicken

I needed a simple meal before heading out of town the other day, and didn’t have time to run to the store. Thankfully, I had chicken and some leftover sausage links in the fridge, so I threw it all together for a sort of creole chicken and sausage meal. .. I used:*2 chicken…

Buddha Bowls

It was a make your own Buddha bowl the other day at our place. I love to serve meals like this with plenty of healthy options, but everyone gets to choose what they eat… The options we had out were baby greens, quinoa, grilled salmon, chickpeas, olives, red onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, red onions and feta…

Red and Gold Beet Salad

I love beets, that’s no secret. I really think I could probably eat them everyday. ????‍♀️I came across some golden beets the other day @officalalbertsons and should have felt embarrassed by how excited I felt. I haven’t been able to find them around here for awhile, but I love them so…

Stuffed Pork Chops

We are a meat loving family. Some more so than others… My southern born husband for example…If he has his choice on a meal, meat is always the main. In this case, for his birthday, he requested stuffed pork chops. We love the recipe from @altonbrown he used years and years ago…

Energy Balls

My new insta friend Stacie @sugarfacebakes posted these energy bites awhile ago and they’ve been on my list ever since. They are filled with almonds, dates and dried cherries- all foods I love. Plus they are so easy to throw together, I love that. Go check out her insta for her suggestions as…

Whole Wheat Pancakes

Pancakes are always a favorite in our house. My youngest has been obsessing over them lately and wanted then all the time. To keep from making them 3 or 4 times a week, I make a huge batch, layer them on parchment on baking sheets, freeze, then bag them up. This way he can pull…

Greek Yogurt Smoothie

This might seem be the most uninformative post I’ve posted so far, but I’ve just added an ingredient to my smoothies I’ve never used before. You may use it all the time and wonder why I haven’t?!?. In case you don’t, I felt like I…

Spiralized Salad

I’ve had my eye on a spiralizer for awhile, and this past week I finally caved and picked up this one from @oxo. I’m sure glad I did, what a cool kitchen gadget! I pulled it out the other day, just to wash it and get it ready, but my…

Quinoa Breakfast Plate

I started doing intermittent fasting quite awhile ago. Not because I feel like it’s helping me lose weight, I just needed a way to stay within a reasonable calorie intake range. Once I start eating, it’s really difficult to stop. So I generally start eating about 11 to noon everyday…
