I know it’s a bit bold to say that these are the best corn muffins, but in my humble opinion they are. I’ve sampled many corn muffins over the years, and these bad boys are basically what a corn muffin should taste like. They’re moist, a bit sweet and savory and have a nice texture and crunch from the cornmeal.
These are not the prettiest bars I’ve ever photographed, but they sure are tasty and pretty healthy to boot. They’re filled with the goodness of quinoa, quinoa flour, chia seeds, goji berries, local raw honey and so much more. You can even make these gulten-free by using gluten-free oats.
Thanks to everyone for voting this week on which recipe you wanted to see posted next. As you can see from the comments, this pumpkin cake won hands down. I’m totally not surprised because it’s fall and everyone has pumpkin and cake on their minds. It really wasn’t a fair competition, was it? I mean salad vs cake? I knew who the winner was before I finished the post, but I just wanted to double-check and make sure that’s what you all wanted. So thanks 🙂
This is the tale of the salad dressing that transformed into a dip. It sounds like the start of a fairy tale don’t you think?

This pineapple, mint and banana smoothie is my family’s new favorite breakfast and afternoon smoothie. It’s tangy and minty and honestly tastes like a creamsicle. I bet even your pickiest kids will love this smoothie. I made this smoothie up for Zoe the week she attended her intense dance camp. She’s not a huge fan of bananas, but I wanted her to get some potassium in her diet, so I knew the smoothie route was the way to go. I also read that pineapple contains a substance called bromelain, which is a group of digestive enzymes that can be instrumental in reducing inflammation and healing wounds. This smoothie sounded like the perfect breakfast smoothie for a girl that was going to be on her feet dancing for 6 hours a day.
The muffins are unbelievably moist and when you cover them all over with the sugar and cinnamon mixture, you have yourself a killer snack. They’re crunchy on the outside and moist on the inside.
I want to give my kids a healthy snack where I can. The weather has been warm and summer-like lately so smoothies are back in my kid’s radar. They love this spinach smoothie as well as this spinach one, but sometimes they want a good old-fashioned creamy smoothie. Who can blame them?
I saw this cake on the most recent cover of Everyday Food Magazine and said to myself, “I just have to make that.” I was
This is my favorite bread to make and give during the Holidays. Cranberries and oranges always remind me of the Holidays, and when I bake up this bread my house smells like Christmas.
This chocolate chip pumpkin bundt bread is one of my kid’s favorite after school snacks! This bundt bread gets requested every fall once school starts, and it’s become a back to school tradition in my house.
