As you may know, I’m sharing adventures in baby food making over on Baby’s First Year. So far I’ve done, sweet potato, peas, mango, and now one of my favorite things in the world, butternut squash.
Since roasted butternut squash is definitely NOT “Baby Food” but pure yumminess, I thought I’d share this one with you. Click here for a photo step-by-step on how I roasted it for my baby. Oh! and see how he reacted as well… Read the rest of this post
Can you say… CRA-AAVING!
I wanted a baked good but I didn’t wanted to bake. I know, such problems I have. This is why I have a stash of VitaMuffin Mixes on hand. They are quick, tasty, and compared to most mixes a bargain in the calorie/fat department.
However, you know me by now. I can’t make them as is. There has to be some doctoring. This time I added blueberries and some cinnamon to make a twist on a sweet corn muffin. Read the rest of this post
I’m on a soup kick at the moment. Blame the rain and slightly cooler temperatures. For as much as I don’t want summer to end, I’m welcoming the change. Nothing inspires me more in the kitchen than a new season. I start to remember all the things I forgot about and then get excited to find them again. Like SOUP! lol I’m a geek like that.

*Cue vegetable soup*

I’m sorry for another non-food post. I’ve had these few housekeeping things to take care of. Anyway, as I said on my Weight Loss Blog, I’ve been sitting on quite a few copies of the GreenLiteBites book and all they are doing is collecting dust in my closet. It’s time to give them away!

With school starting for a 1st grader, a 6 month old learning to eat, and a goal to cook more than we go out, I’m in the middle of a family food frenzy. My goal is to plan, plan, plan! Sunday I’m setting a dinner menu for the week to help me ward off the husband’s requests to eat out.
Anyway, I just wanted to take a minute and let you know about a few things that I have going on. Read the rest of this post
Oh. My. WORD! This was AMAZING!
I don’t know what posed me to make it. I just came home from a run. I wasn’t really hungry but knew I should eat something. So I whipped this up.
The flavors together are simply PERFECT. At least I think so. Dark chocolate! Banana! Almonds! I go gaga over each separately but together? Even tastier. Read the rest of this post
