BananaSoftServe

Banana Soft Serve (It’s Homemade One Ingredient Ice Cream, SERIOUSLY!)

Update: Click here to see how I make a single serving with my Bullet.

A few weeks ago Kim sent me this link from theKitchn, How To Make Creamy Ice Cream with Just One Ingredient! Being an ice cream fan I was immediately intrigued. So I did a little digging with google and discovered I was missing out on some crazy banana ice cream trend!

Who would have thunk it? Read the rest of this post »»

Warm Quinoa Salad with Pears, Pecans and Raisins

I love pears! Seriously, I can’t get enough of them right now. I have a ton that are at the peak of ripeness. I don’t want them to go to waste so I ate one with breakfast and then experimented with this for lunch. I must say… A-mazing!

The Laughing Cow and Other News

I feel like I haven’t posted in weeks when it’s really only been 3 days. I need to touch base. First and foremost, I’m so excited to announce my new Partnership with The Laughing Cow.

I am one of their new Community leaders and am very excited for the opportunity to work with them. Read the rest of this post »»

Pear Turkey Sandwich

I’m fairly new to the idea off adding fruit to sandwiches. I’m not sure why it’s taken me this long to try it, the possibilities are endless and it’s such a great way to add lots of flavors with a healthy twist. Not to mention, for my fellow Weight Watcher fans, fruit is now FREE so it’s a 0 point addition!

My first stab at it was my Christmas Inspired Panini where I paired cherries and avocado with ham. This time I’m using my current favorite fruit of the season… Read the rest of this post »»

Cheddar Pepper Stuffed Portabello Burger

Let’s start with a confession, as I normally do. I never make Portabello burgers. Actually, I RARELY even buy Portabello mushrooms. They are just one of those things that won’t fly with husband or child so I don’t bother. But when I saw them at the store this weekend, I couldn’t resist. I’m home for lunches now so whipping myself up something is a possibility. So that’s exactly what I did!

Our First Green Smoothie: Clementine

I did it! I FINALLY tried the green smoothie rage that seems to be sweeping the blogosphere. Many have suggested it to me in the past. So many I can’t even list them all but it was Wendy‘s recent comment on my Orange Creamsicle Smoothie idea that finally called me into action.

Single-Serve Clementine "Cake"

Based on my Single-Serve Upside Down Pineapple “Cake” I made a new variation. Seriously, the options are endless!

Today I used a clementine as inspiration for a small, perfectly portioned dessert just for me. No mess, no leftovers and completely satisfying! Write up below the video..

Spicy Meatless Meaty Kale Soup

About a year ago I tried Kale for the first time. It’s just one of those ingredients I don’t gravitate towards naturally. I never really know what to do with it. While getting it weekly from the CSA this summer I experimented with a few ideas but I still haven’t really adopted into our weekly menu much.

One way to start is to actually BUY it. So at my last shopping trip I picked up a huge bunch. There’s only one problem, I’ve been staring at it in the fridge for days completely uninspired. Read the rest of this post »»

Single-Serve Upside Down Pineapple "Cake"

This idea came after a day of intense pineapple cravings. I rummaged through my pantry searching for a can of pineapple like a mad woman. I couldn’t get the thought of it out of my head. Thankfully I had one. :) I always try to keep a stock of canned fruit, especially through the winter.

Surprisingly I didn’t finish the can in one sitting–something that happens often–so today I decided to use a leftover ring in a single-serve experiment I’ve been pondering for some time. Read the rest of this post »»

Roasted Red Peppers Stuffed with Cheese and Cucumbers

I get too giddy about food. It’s sad. It really is. There is nothing I enjoy more then the challenge of looking in the fridge and coming up with something fun to eat. The creative aspect of it is as satisfying if not MORE satisfying then the eating aspect. Seriously, I’m a freak.

Today I got a package in the mail that made me smile eat to ear. Just look… Read the rest of this post »»
