Driscoll's Berry Giveaway + {Berry Cobbler w/Kahlua}

I love it when great things happen without even trying.  It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes by Maya Angelou--- "You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don't make money your goal. Instead, pursue the things you love doing, and then do them so well that people can't take their eyes off of you."      I love blogging. I love creating nourishing recipes. I love photographing beautiful food. And it seems people are noticing. ... Read more » about Driscoll's Berry Giveaway + {Berry Cobbler w/Kahlua}

Joining My Local CSA + {Peach Cobbler w/Quinoa}

Many of you who have followed my blog for a long time know that I recently moved to the mountains. It's a bit remote... and by "remote" I mean: 25 min to the grocery store, 25 min to school, 25 min to church --- ok, 25 min to get ANYWHERE!!!  But the closest CSA (community supported agriculture) pick-up used to be over an hour away. ...

Simply: Chipotle Peach & Raspberry Cheese Bread

So bright. So cheery. So simple. So mouth-wateringly good! This appetizer is perfect for any summer party, backyard get-together, or sophisticated gathering.  Have you figured out how much I love the new "Simply" line from Pillsbury yet?!?!          I promise, they didn't pay me to say that.  (But maybe they should, LOL). I love their new "Simply" products because they use no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives...and have no high fructose corn syrup. ...

10 Awesome Greek Yogurt Dessert Recipes

Similar to my strong dislike of spreadable marshmallow goo, growing up I never liked yogurt either. Ewww. It was always too sweet, too watery, or too fake-tasting for me.  So I didn't eat it for almost 30 years!!  But then I discovered greek yogurt: thick, creamy, less sweet, AND packed with protein. And I was hooked!! Of course I like eating it straight from the container (a la spoon).  But, I also started baking/cooking with it -- and found ...

I Love Spring + {Bird's Nest Cookies}

Spring was ushered in this week by a blizzard in Denver; though it was much less of an event here in the mountains, ironically.  I don't know about you, but I am a HUGE fan of Spring. I love the longer days. I love the sunlight. I love the snowmelt. I love the flowers. I love the birds chirping. ... Read more » about I Love Spring + {Bird's Nest Cookies}

Smiles + {Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Bread}

This past weekend was all about my little girl and making as many smiles happen as humanly possible. #priorities #nonewblogpostonMonday  We hiked. We lowered the temp on the hottub and splashed around as a family. We fed peanuts to squirrels. We ate fish tacos with my inlaws. We swang at the park. And we accomplished nothing. And it was perfect... and needed.

Oh, and we ate chocolate-y peanut butter bread. ... Read more » about Smiles + {Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Bread}

A No Sugar {Chocolate Torte} for my love

It all started with my recent recipe success - making the absolute best (& healthiest) Key Lime Pie, which happens to be Dear Hubby's favorite dessert.  If I could create an almost identical taste and experience to an all-time favorite, but with 70% less sugar using banana and squash puree & greek yogurt, then I could do anything! ...

The Absolute Best (and Healthiest) Key Lime Pie

Key lime pie is my hubby's absolute favorite dessert. So, I have been a woman on a mission: to make an even more perfect, low sugar, healthier version of the classic dessert recipe.  Perusing the internet only found me "healthy" versions that subbed in low-fat sweetened condensed milk instead of the full-fat version or used jello and cream cheese.   I knew I could do better. First of all... ... Read more » about The Absolute Best (and Healthiest) Key Lime Pie
