Turkey Pesto Meatballs – with lots of hidden veggies!

How was your Thanksgiving?  I hope you all had a great time with family and friends!  I made Patrick’s grandmother’s apple pie for our family Thanksgiving.  Patrick’s grandmother was truly a sweet, gentle, woman of faith.  She passed away two Thanksgivings ago and we miss her.  Isn’t it wonderful to make a recipe that reminds … Continue reading

Flax and Honey Banana Bread

I had a bit of a panic moment yesterday.  When I came home after running errands with the two kids, I realized that I did not return with everything that I left the house with.  No, I didn’t leave a child behind…just my laptop.  I am still hoping that it is at one of the … Continue reading

100 calorie egg cups

I have a confession…I used to eat quesadillas every morning for breakfast during medical school.  I would just put a piece of cheese in between two tortillas, toast it up in my toaster oven, and take it with me to class.  I’m still not quite sure why I kept doing it, as it didn’t have … Continue reading

Homemade Cashew Butter

Homemade Cashew Butter

I love the idea of making things from scratch.  Don’t get me wrong, I use a lot of convenience foods, but I’m trying to make an effort to bake my own bread, english muffins, and pizza dough, make my own pudding mix, ice cream, greek yogurt, strawberry jam, and now make my own peanut butter…or cashew butter as … Continue reading

I hope you all had a great weekend!  Ours was great, except that reality is setting in that we are moving in less than one month!  Compound that with the news we received yesterday that our original plans for renting our place are falling through, and we now have to find a renter in less … Continue reading

Cinnamon Sugar Pancake Muffins

I’ve been a proud mama and wife this week 🙂  Little sweetie did a great job at her first dentist visit.  She really seemed to enjoy having her teeth cleaned by the hygienist, and having her teeth counted by the dentist!  Best of all, there were no cavities! Also, our hot water heater broke last … Continue reading

Pony Rides and Caprese Salad

We had such a great weekend, hope yours was fantastic as well!!  There’s nothing better than quality time with the ones I love 🙂  Yesterday, we took our daughter for a pony ride at Bonnie Springs Ranch.  The ranch was originally built in 1943 as a stopover for wagon trains going to California down the … Continue reading

Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal Squares

Strawberries and Cream Oatmeal Squares

This is my new favorite recipe for baked oatmeal!  I love the combination of sweet strawberries and cream cheese, with all the goodness of oatmeal.  There is no added oil or butter, but you won’t miss it, trust me!    This makes the perfect breakfast, snack, or even dessert if you topped it with some … Continue reading
