Ham and Cheese Crescent Roll Ups

It’s post holiday season. You know what that means?

Leftover Crescent rolls to experiment with!

Every year for Thanksgiving I buy a few canisters. It’s the only time I do as I can’t be trusted around them. Let’s just say I’d beat you in the How-Many-Crescent-Rolls-Can-You-Eat-In-One-Sitting game and leave it at that.

Simply Roasted Parsnips with Carrots

Last week the kids and I tried parsnips for the first time and I’ve made them 3 times since. I wanted to figure out the best way to roast them. Yeah, that’s it, the best way to roast them. You’ll buy that right? Right?

The truth is, I’m obsessed. I found myself roasting a batch, this batch… Read the rest of this post »»

Banana Blueberry “Pudding”

Did you know one-fifth of a medium avocado, or a one-ounce serving, has 50 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, including 4% of the recommended Daily Value (DV) for vitamin E, 4% vitamin C, 8% folate, 8% fiber, 2% iron, 4% potassium, with 81 micrograms of lutein and 19 micrograms of beta-carotene (According to avocado.org).

Did you also know blended avocado makes a wonderful pudding consistency. Really, it does! Check out my Chocolate Pudding experiment. That picture doesn’t lie. When whipped and mixed with sweet ingredients the avocado creates an icing texture and it is amazing! Why not take advantage of this for baby? May I introduce Banana Blueberry “Pudding” made with avocado. You’ve got to try this one… Read the rest of this post »»

Chicken and Vegetable Stuffed Acorn Squash

Yesterday just felt like a good day to stuff an acorn squash. I had one sitting on my counter for quite some time and it was just begging to be cooked. Since both husband and child don’t like it I made a solo meal just for me and, well, it was DELICIOUS!

Here’s what I did…

Fennel and Apple Salad

I bought a fennel bulb on a whim for the holidays not knowing quite what I would do with it. Of course I forgot about until yesterday when I was rummaging through the fridge trying to figure out what I wanted to make for breakfast.

I pulled it out and stared at it for about an hour, brainstorming with myself on how I can eat it besides just straight up.

Parsnip

Produce Pick: Parsnip [video]

We pulled out the camera for a good old fashioned produce pick video. Up this week: Parsnips!

This is another one of those vegetables that are just not on my radar for some reason. I never remember having them growing up, and honestly I don’t think I ever tried one. I didn’t know what I was missing! Read the rest of this post »»

Sprinkled VitaBrownie Donuts

I probably should have warned you I was taking a holiday hiatus. I’ve been soaking up every moment of family time imaginable these last few days, leaving no time for anything else. Not even blogging! Shocking I know. ;)

So I return not with a new recipe, per se, but to share a fun new family holiday tradition where I take my favorite brownie mix and turn it into fun festive donuts! Read the rest of this post »»
