Peanut butter & Chocolate Shakeology Recipe: Add coffee ice cubes for a treat!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Shakeology Recipe

I make this peanut butter chocolate Shakeology drink every other day or so as a meal replacement. It’s a way for me to get all of the nutrients I need and get rid of those cravings I get for sweet stuff during the day. I am usually a huge snacker, and replacing one meal a day with a protein smoothie or Shakeology (I alternate every other day) is the only thing I’ve found that helps me avoid digging for chocolate…

Fresh Picked Mini Apple Pie Recipe #HolidayBaking

This post is sponsored by Baker’s Secret. We went to the local apple orchard last weekend and picked until we couldn’t pick anymore.

You’ll need: 4 medium sized apples Refrigerated pie crusts 1/2 C milk 2 T brown Sugar 1/2 C oats 2 t cinnamon Large…

Protein Packed Baked Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Recipe #DairyFree, #GlutenFree

Protein Packed Baked Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Recipe #HolidayBaking

This post is sponsored by Baker’s Secret. Also, there are affiliate links in this post. Baked oatmeal is the best thing to have with coffee, in my opinion. It’s not, however, the best thing for my daily caloric intake. Especially the baked peanut butter banana oatmeal recipe I’m sharing today. I decided that if I wanted to keep eating baked oatmeal for breakfast, I had to find a way to make it a little healthier. Adding protein powder and substituting…

Frozen Margarita and Guacamole Recipe

Piedra Azul Frozen Margarita And Guacamole Recipes – Dip and Sip Challenge

This post is sponsored by Piedra Azul Tequila and Gaby Dalkin, author of Absolutely Avocados  Did you know that September 16th is National Guacamole Day? It’s a pretty important day in our house, because we love avocados! We especially loved looking through Gaby Dalkin’s book, Absolutely Avocados. We learned about avocados (did you know there are over 100 varities?) and found some great new recipes! We entertain often and fresh guacamole is the easiest side for us to make–fresh ingredients, quick prep and lots…

Creamy Caramel Iced Coffee Popsicles

Creamy Caramel Iced Coffee Popsicles

It’s that time of year in Arizona– time when everything tastes better frozen. Yes, everything. I can’t imagine turning the coffee maker on and drinking hot coffee, so I decided to turn my morning coffee into a popsicle! As I mentioned, it’s too hot for me to turn on the coffee maker. Since I’m just making a quick cup to turn into iced coffee, I used the Melitta Pour-Over Brewing Cone.  This would also be great for someone who is…

French Toast Casserole Recipe

French Toast Casserole Recipe (Using Ingredients Already In Your Kitchen)

Jack and I made a delicious Father’s Day breakfast last weekend! Since we live about 30 minutes from the nearest grocery store, adapting recipes to what we have in our kitchen is important–most French Toast Casserole recipes include whipping cream, half and half, or cream cheese–none of which we usually have in our kitchen. We played around a little bit (actually had to make this twice) and were so excited that our 2nd version was so good, it didn’t last…

Spinach Smoothie Recipe

Death Cube, I Mean, Kale And Spinach Smoothie Recipe

You drink death cube smoothies, right? Oh… you don’t call them that in your house? I guess you would probably appreciate the back story, then. I buy the big containers of fresh spinach and baby kale at Costco, and being the only person in the house who drinks green smoothies I never finish the greens before they go bad. A few weeks ago I heard someone talking about freezing their spinach before it went bad and using it in smoothies…

Watermelon Margarita Recipe

Watermelon Margaritas with Heart of Haiti and Macy’s Culinary Council

Macy’s Culinary Council is teaming up with Heart of Haiti to bring you a seasonal selection of pairings between cocktails and serving trays. I have a wonderful Watermelon Margarita recipe to share with you from Chef Tom Douglas. My watermelon wasn’t quite ripe yet, so it’s a lighter pink than Tom’s is (he’s the chef anyway, right?!) but it was still yummy! It looked perfect paired with my bright nesting trays from the Macy’s Heart of Haiti collection, which helps residents of…

Coconut Oil Latte

Put Coconut Oil In Coffee? Yes! It’s A Coconut Oil Latte!

Thanks for stopping by! To be notified of new recipes and other posts, subscribe to my newsletter! Coconut oil in coffee? Are you crazy?! It doesn’t taste like coconut. It doesn’t smell like coconut. But… it has all of the health benefits of coconut oil. I should mention quick that coconut oil and coconut milk are completely different. And to confuse you even more, there are two kinds of coconut milk – thicker coconut milk usually found in a can…
