Hey there friends! I hope you are doing well! I am back today with another great recipe- one that you will definitely need to add to that recipe box! 🙂 Inspired by our local health food store’s cafe, I have taken this smoothie and made a few of my own personal changes. Not only is it delicious and kid approved, it is jam packed with nutrients! This could definitely pass...

Power Packed Protein Balls

As a mama to five kiddos, the youngest being twins who breastfeed every four hours, I am fully aware of the importance of having power snacks that I can grab on the go! And, the more I visit with fellow moms, I have learned that I am not alone! Getting the nutrients we need in the midst of our busy days, can often be a challenge. I created these power...

Divine Raw Brownies

Chocolate….Did I ever tell you how much I love it? Yep, I think I did…many times, in fact! 🙂 If not, you could probably guess that chocolate is on my mind often by how many posts have included a recipe containing this treat! 🙂 I promise you, though…other “food groups” are in my kitchen, and I have a couple delicious side dishes to post soon, ones that are sure to...

Chocolate Cassava Flour Brownies (Grain-Free, Gluten-Free!)

Hello to you all, and happy May! I am so excited to share another delicious brownie recipe with you today, one that I am sure will please your taste buds!:) Although I do have a couple brownie recipes on this blog, this fudge-filled dessert is a bit more “cake-like” in texture.

Delicious and Dense Gluten-Free Pound Cake

Each year at Easter time, I pull out one of my favorite recipes to serve: a layered berry trifle. One of my favorites includes layers of berries, a mix of cream cheese with whip cream (I love using Truwhip as a replacement for Kraft Cool Whip. It is so delicious, holds up well, and is healthy alternative!), and dense gluten-free pound cake. Now, I will admit: Each time I have...

Banana and Peanut Butter Soft Serve “Ice Cream” (No ice cream maker required!)

Ah… Sometimes nothing feels better at night than a delicious bowl of ice cream accompanied with your favorite toppings, right?! Couple that with a warm brownie, and all of the sudden, everything seems right with the world. 🙂 Hey, I have been there. The “sweet tooth” is real. But what do you do when the sweet tooth strikes often (like mine)? Is there a substitute that is not only delectable,...

Coconut Flour Fudge Brownies (Grain-Free Goodness!)

It’s no secret…I am definitely in love with chocolate, particularly chocolate brownies. If I am honest, I have something on hand every week! 🙂 Am I addicted? Probably. 🙂 These brownies have been my “go to” dessert for quite a while; they also have been successful at satisfying the sweet tooth of family and friends. I am incredibly grateful to Erica from the Comfy Belly for this delicious recipe. I...

Nutritious Chocolate Mint Smoothie (Paleo Style)

I know, I know…I am a couple days late with this one! I had planned to have this post ready for St. Patty’s Day, but unfortunately (or not:)), I drank this delightful smoothie before I gave myself a moment to take a picture. So, I just promised myself another smoothie the next day…and the next. 🙂 Yes, I have had three of these since March 17th, but I am not...

A Birthday Boy’s Dream Digger Cake (Gluten-Free)

Recently, my oldest son had his third birthday, and as I write this, I can’t believe we have had three of these celebrations already. “Is he really three?” I ask myself. Then I remind myself of the importance of cherishing each moment, for I have learned this to be true: time does fly. 🙂 In light of the conversation of cherishing each moment, one of the things I have always...
