YUM! Creamy cheese, yes please! Inspiration for this appetizer comes from one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Knoxville, Emilia. Since I can’t eat out every night and I’m betting Chef Matt wouldn’t divulge his recipe I had to come up with one of my own.Read More
Not only does this recipe come from Chex™ but so did all the ingredients! Back on July 4th I made a Chex™ mix snack with pretzels and M&M’s and white chocolate. I made little snack packs for my family to enjoy at the movies and they LOVED it, like really really enjoyed it….Read More
I know these look basic but I assure you they are anything BUT ordinary. My friends and family can’t get enough and neither will your party guests. No matter how many poppers are made there will NEVER be one left, I’m not kidding, LOL! People will literally grab them off the cookie sheet as you take it out of the oven.Read More
This is a unique one, I know. But you gotta trust me when I say it’s soooo good! The sage leaves turn into the best savory chips you could ever imagine. I haven’t met any yet, that didn’t like them.Read More
Need a last minute 4th of July snack? I got you covered! I whipped up this red, white and blue Chex trail mix snack in minutes. My family and I are headed to movies this year so thought a sweet snicky-snack after dinner would be fun! Happy Birthday America!Read More
I started making these at least 6 years ago to take to a boot camp class I helped instruct. They were the perfect little snack to refuel after a heart pumping workout. These delectable little sandwiches had fallen off my radar until I needed to make something that would be fun for kids, in their lunch box or after school.Read More
Now I may not be the foremost expert on Danish food but I do know how good their ebelskivers are! Ebelskivers are traditionally served as a dessert because they are pretty sweet. Think pancake, but better. Better because they are little round popper-shaped pancakes filled with your favorite jam, chocolate or fruit and they can be handheld. I love dunking them in maple syrup!Read More
Pear Chips for the WIN over sweet snack cravings!
I love pears anyway so it’s no surprise that I gobbled these right up! They are my late night, TV watching snicky-snack when that sweet craving sneaks up on me. Pears are naturally sweet so you don’t have to add much sugar, which is good, because lately I’ve had a wicked sweet tooth. haha!
What goes better together than coffee and chocolate? Nothing! Well except maybe chocolate and red wine, LOL! Anyway, I posted on my Instagram stories that I was making these energy bites and the DM’s started flooding in (thank you friends) so as soon as I was finished I wanted to get this recipe on the blog. I made 4 batches and after a few tweaks in the first batch I feel comfortable sharing the recipe. Enjoy!Read More
I love to entertain and I’ve been known to spur of the moment, last minute invite people over without giving much thought to what I’m going to serve or if I even have time to run to the grocery.
So I keep these handy-dandy recipes close by for just such occasions!
It’s a new year and for many of us that means new goals for life and our body. Weather your goal is to loose weight, add muscle, drink less or maybe it’s simply to make better choices, it all starts from the inside out. This smoothie bowl is a great way to start the day and it sets you up for successful eating all day.Read More
I love to spin at CycleBar, the cycle star instructors, the atmosphere, the heart-pumping rides and the amenities keep me coming back. Everyone who works there is so kind and genuine you immediately feel welcomed into the studio.
So when they accepted my offer to cater their brunch ride, I was pretty excited. This would be the first time I cooked for complete strangers. I’ve catered plenty of dinner and showers for friends and family but this was the first time I had the courage to put myself out there.
These protein rich spinach muffins are helping my husband and me make good breakfast decisions this week. The feta makes a rich flavor, spinach and egg helps keep us full and the thyme gives it a nice fresh taste.Read More
Back in 2013 and 2014 I made this snack so often (like once a week for months) that I burnt out my taste buds. Time went on and I had forgotten how good these little guys were and how convenient they were to just grab one as I'm running out the door. BUT…I’m bringing them back starting NOW! :)Read More
I jumped on the smoothie bowl train and I'm glad I did. Now it's not something I make every day because really I'm not getting up any earlier than I have to and this takes a little long for a weekday breakfast. But on the weekend, it's game on. Healthy, satisfying and pretty to look at, what more could we ask for in a breakfast bowl. Enjoy!Read More
