Well hello there friends! And hello there beautiful, glorious, fall!
This past week I was gifted some LOVELY zucchini from my sweet, sweet, coworker Miss Liz, & thought that I would make a vegan "zoodle" dish with my loot ***I am opting for more vegan choices since watching "Cowspiracy" (a great documentary produced by Leonardo DiCaprio that is currently streaming on Netflix).
My mind immediately went to a hearty. amazing recipe from Against All Grain for a Creamy Pesto Pasta that my dear friend Amy had previously shared with me--so I figured I would post my stab at it :)
Hello, and happy Monday to you!
I hope that you all were able to enjoy some cycling & quality time with the Momma's of your life this past week! With all of that of that pedaling, and warmer weather around the corner, I think a sweet treat is in order! May I introduce "Creamy Dreamy Strawberry Froyo".
Realistically, with this healthy delight you could justify indulging your senses, & tantalizing your taste buds every day! As an added bonus, on Friday you get a guilt-free pass to top your frozen delight with a few chocolate chips in tribute to National Chocolate Chip Day!
Hello, and happy Sunday to you!
You may or may not know that Thursday, April 30th is National Oatmeal Cookie Day! According to ABC News, this sweet treat has been a staple in the American diet since its debut in the 1800's. In fact, out of the 2 million cookies Americans eat annually--the oatmeal cookie is second in popularity only to chocolate chip!
With this sentiment in mind, I thought why not combine the ever-popular oatmeal cookie WITH a chocolate chip cookie for a healthy treat??? I give you "Chewy Gooey Oatmeal Cookies". These decadent little dollops of deliciousness deliver ***Tasty Easy, Healthy: Gluten-Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Vegan--You'll go bananas for them!
Well hello there everyone!
I hope that you have been able to enjoy some of the gorgeous weather that has been such a delightful treat in my neck of the woods!
Made With Love
With Cupid's arrow fast approaching, I thought it might be nice to spend some time focusing on a few treats, gifts, and ideas that could make someone's day a little brighter.
In my opinion, you don't need a significant other in order to enjoy Valentine's Day. As with anything in life, you "get out" what you "put in". If you spread joy to others, it will come back to you.
The new year has brought a flurry of falling flakes; shimmering snow has blanketed our world. Days are spent making memories with loved ones laughing, talking, puzzling, and playing.
The weather outside has us bundling up for bike rides, loading up on layers, turning to flickering fireplaces, cuddling under cozy blankets, and serving steamy soups and stews.
I absolutely adore savoring spoonfuls of these homemade blends--to me, they have "comfort food" written all over them.
This morning, I was in the kitchen grinding some fresh coffee beans; I find that starting the day off with a nice cup of joe is the best way to shake off the "one-eyed-groggy-hot-mess" look. As I was taking the first few velvety sips in, I noticed that we had a few bananas that had started to brown.
Being the ever-frugal, recycle-minded, waste-oriented, "green" person that I am--I felt an urge to find a way to use that lovely fruit to its fullest potential.
What I came up with is this tasty little number... AND as an added bonus, it is even "Husband Approved"
