Sweet Potato Smoothie



One last recipe today! This was to die for. So glad I tried it. I was a bit apprehensive to put a sweet potato in my smoothie for some reason. WHAT WAS I THINKING? While Cal has been sick this week, I wanted to get him some extra vitamin C. I forgot to pick up some OJ from the market so my friend Patty suggested a sweet potato to give him his vitamin c. Who knew sweet potatoes were packed with vitamin c? Oranges get all the credit!

Sweet Potato Chicken Soup

Hello!

Happy Sunday! Sorry I’ve been MIA these last few weeks. I’ve been crazy busy with playdates, getting the hang of cloth diapering, and starting my business. I will keep you all informed as to when I will be opening up shop in a few weeks! So this week, Cal has caught a nasty little cold. Perfect excuse to make a big batch of chicken soup! He absolutely loved it too. He ate this for 4 days straight and gobbled it down every time…This kid will eat anything off a fork or

Biscut Apple Mushroom Stuffing

Hey guys! After trying this homemade stuffing or “dressing” recipe, you’ll never want to buy the box ever again. It was just as quick to make, except it tasted 50000x better! I paired it with roasted chicken, fresh summer corn, and some cranberry sauce. I couldn’t get enough of it, so I made a thanksgiving quesadilla the next day….I hope you enjoy 🙂

Tex Mex Chicken Soup

Hi guys!

Last night I came up with a pretty awesome recipe. I was really in the mood to go out for Mexican, but I have so much fresh groceries that I would hate to see go to waste. With everything I had, I decided to make a Tex Mex chicken soup. I’m not sure if there’s too much of a difference between this and chicken tortilla soup (other than the tortillas). This was my first attempt at making anything like this, so I was obviously surprised at how yummy it came out! I’m

Copycat Mocha Iced Coffee

Hello!
 
So I am not the biggest fan of coffee. I never have been. But I need it, BAD! When your 9 month old is waking up multiple times a night, and by multiple, I’m talking 4-5; you start to really need caffeine! But I can not stand the taste of coffee (coffee ice cream is a different story). Jesse brought me home an ice coffee from Dunkin Doughnuts one day and it was delish! Apparently , I only enjoy coffee if it tastes sweet and chocolatey! So I decided I needed to come up with a copycat recipe for their mocha iced coffee. Here is what I came up with….I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

The BEST Chili Recipe Ever :)

Hey Guys! So, I am BEYOND excited to share with you my most recent chili recipe! I kind of “winged” it with what I had at the house, and it came out amazing. I’m just going to call it “The Best Chili Recipe Ever!” I cut a lot of the fat out by using lean ground turkey instead of beef. I also added pulled pork, which was the perfect combo. Instead of using canned tomato sauce, I pureed a bunch of fresh tomatoes from the farmers market. It tasted so much fresher that way, and I won’t be using canned tomato sauce ever again! (Which I probably will when tomatoes are not in season, but I can keep thinking that 😉 I hope you guys enjoy it as much as we did!

Margarita Pulled Chicken

So after moving, we ended up crock pot-less. I realized that we don’t have one right as I was deciding I wanted to make a crock pot recipe. What luck! I decided to slow cook anyway. I was going to be home all day, so It didn’t really matter. Boy am I glad I figured out this recipe! It is soooo good! I was trying to be creative with flavors, so I looked around the fridge to see what I could come up with. Margarita pulled chicken! And yes, it is true to its name!
