How To Make Chia Pudding

I’m posting this chia pudding because I’ve sharing it on my Insta stories and eating it non-stop, so enough readers asked me for the recipe, so I’m posting it for you all today!

Easy Farro Salad with Tomatoes, Cucumber, Red Onion and Basil

I just had to post this farro salad because I’m literally making it ALL the time, (obsessed) and the kids and I are devouring it. It’s SO simple to make and pairs with just about anything, chicken, steak, fish, you name it. It’s even awesome on its own, and makes the perfect salad to bring to your next picnic or potluck.

Crispy Roasted Chickpeas with Rosemary and Lemon Zest

If you’re a fan of garbanzo beans or chickpeas (whatever you want to call them) then you will LOVE them all crispy and crazy!  Hmmm…. maybe that’s what I should call them, crazy crispy chickpeas,

Overnight Refrigerator Oats with Almond Butter and Cacao Nibs

“Grab-and-go” breakfasts are a huge part of my life these days. Weekday mornings are hectic, and some mornings I just want something that I can quickly grab from the fridge and take with me and chow down on the ferry, or in the office. I just love overnight refrigerator oats, because they’re ULTRA EASY to make, (takes just 5 minutes), are ready to go in the morning, and healthy to boot!

2 Ingredient Dark Chocolate Magic Shell

Hey, it’s Monday and Monday’s are not the easiest for anyone. Monday’s should be fun, because it’s the start of a new week, a new day, so, I’ve decided to change your Monday around and post a fun treat and create a bit of magic for you all.  You all remember magic shell right? It’s the chocolate stuff that instantly hardens when poured over ice cream. It’s pretty awesome, and not only loved by the kids, but loved by me as well!

Turkey Avocado Burgers with Mint Cucumber Yogurt Sauce

We’re a burger loving household. I swear we crave a burger about once a week! We love all types of burgers from turkey, chicken, to buffalo and veggie. Burgers make such an easy weeknight meal because all you have to do is form the patties, toss them on the grill, pair with them with a simple salad or roasted vegetable, and voila, dinner is served. Easy peasy weeknight cooking!

Overnight Refrigerator Steel Cut Oats with Chia and Strawberries

If you’re looking for an easy, healthy, gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, grab and go breakfast that will keep you full for hours, then you have to try these overnight refrigerator steel cut oats with chia and strawberries. This is my go-to travel and weekend  breakfast. I make these oats all the time to take to Tahoe, so I have an easy breakfast to eat in the car on the way to the slopes.

Heirloom tomato gazpacho

Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho

It’s summer, and what soup says summer better than gazpacho, right? Gazpacho is seriously the perfect summer soup for many reasons. First off, it’s a cold soup, so it’s the perfect soup to sip on a hot summer day or night. Secondly, it doesn’t require you to heat up a stove or oven, which is bonus when it’s 90 plus degrees out. I call it the lazy mans soup because when your tired and famished all you have to do is pull out a batch from the fridge, pour it in a bowl and eat away. It’s also a great weekday soup because it takes under 30 minutes to make, just chop up the fresh ingredients and toss them in a blender! Make a batch in the morning while the kids are eating breakfast, or before you rush off to work, and when you come home all tired from a long day, you dinner will be ready! How nice does that sound?

Quinoa with tomatoes and cucumber and parsley and mint

Quinoa with Tomatoes, Cucumber, Parsley and Mint

This is the perfect healthy summer salad! It’s chock-full of fresh herbs, cucumbers and tomatoes, which are at their ripest in the summer months. I used heirloom tomatoes for this recipe, and let me tell you, this salad was BURSTING FULL OF FLAVOR! I might even say that it was a bit better the next day when all of the flavors had a chance to meld together!

Popovers with rosemary and sea salt

Popovers with Rosemary and Sea Salt

We’re a total popover loving family. We love the traditional popovers, sugar-crusted popovers and now these rosemary and sea salt popovers. Popovers are my carb of choice because they’re SO easy to make up and require a few simple pantry ingredients. They may look all fancy and formal with their big puffy tops and seem difficult to make, but let me tell you, they’re one of the easiest recipes to make. They even have an exact cooking time which makes them even easier to make up.
