Zushi

  A while back I was invited to a pre-opening party for Whole Foods. We were treated to food and awesome swag. Some food demonstrations took place and zushi, was one of them. I fell in love with the idea and couldn’t wait to make them at home with Oliver. These come together easy and […]

Harvest Snack Mix

Harvest Trail Mix 1

This Harvest Snack Mix is the perfect mix of salty and sweet. If you can get your hands on the last bags of candy corn pumpkins, you won’t regret it. But If all you can find is candy corn, that will work just the same – minus the extra cute factor. I made this as […]

No-Bake Granola Energy Balls

I got really into these energy bites last Spring when our second son was born. The first couple of months I found it difficult to find time to cook, clean, do laundry, do anything. These quick to prepare granola energy balls came to the rescue on most days. I first made the No-Bake Energy Bites […]

Spider PB&J

My toddler is now at an age where packing silly things in his lunch box is fun, even with his picky-eater status.  I saw a version of this on Pinterest and immediately got into the kitchen to try it out. I love turning this classic PB&J sandwich into a creepy crawly critter. For a savory […]

Chocolate Covered Matzos

  This is an easy snack you can make with your kids for Passover, or any time. Oliver goes to a Jewish preschool so it’s been fun learning about their holidays. He came home with chocolate covered matzos the other day that his class had made and I loved the idea. He loved the chocolate. […]

Easter Popcorn Medley

  I recently stumbled on chocolate covered sunflower seeds and now I’m obsessed. They are so so good. So good I thought they would be good in a cookie. I also love that they are colored with all-natural food dyes – total bonus and oh so pretty!!     Chocolate Sunflower Seed Oatmeal Cookies Recipe […]

No-Bake Energy Bites

I’m always on the hunt to find healthy snacks for my toddler. Something that’s not pre-packaged, not full of bad ingredients and also something that doesn’t take forever to make. These little energy bites are the perfect solution. Just stir all the ingredients together and roll into mini balls. And the best part, there’s no […]

Cranberry Bread (w/ No Refined Sugar)

cranberry walnut bread

Cranberry bread is one of my favorite breads this time of year. In this version, I used no refined sugars, which makes it just a little bit more healthier for my family. The sweetness comes only from orange juice and honey. I like this as a muffin too. You can pour batter in a muffin […]

Apple & PB Sandwich

this is a great snack for the whole family. It makes eating healthy more fun and creative. If you have a peanut allergy,  you can easily swap out the peanut butter for almond butter or another nut butter, or even sunflower butter. I bet using Nutella in this would also be delish.   Ingredients 1 […]
