Tropical Berry Coconut Smoothie

I love smoothies in the morning. I wish I made them more. Problem is, I am not a morning person and neither is my toddler, so our mornings are usually mayhem and there is just no flipping way I have my act together enough to whip up a smoothie before work… #lifegoals But on the […]

Blackberry Mint Lemonade

If this glass of refreshingly awesome lemonade doesn’t just scream summer, I don’t know what does. Last weekend we spent an entire, very hot, summer day outside doing yard work and playing. I immediately thought that a tall glass of homemade lemonade would be the perfect drink to have sitting on our porch. My mint […]

Banana Chocolate Almond Smoothie {dairy free}

I’ve been getting up later and later as the school year has progressed.  I have absolutely no time in the morning to do anything other than get myself ready and out the door.  I am lucky if I grab anything for breakfast other than an iced coffee.  Sometimes I manage to grab a yogurt or […]

Strawberry-Banana-Coconut Smoothie

I now use my immersion blender to make all of my smoothies…it has sort of changed my life.  It is so much easier to get out and to clean than my big blender.  Plus, it’s the perfect size for one smoothie.  I just tossed this together last weekend to use up leftover coconut milk from […]

Apple Cider Spice Cocktail

Thanksgiving is my jam.  I love spending all day in the kitchen cooking with people I love.  It’s fun and tasty.  Also, this holiday features all of my favorite foods…side dish heaven.  My sis-in-law Lauren usually brings the fixings to make a killer cocktail and this year’s was fab.  Made us feel all warm and […]

Tropical Mojito

I am not a big drinker these days.  Not that I’ve been a big drinker since college, but I really can’t have more than one beer or a glass of wine otherwise I fall asleep standing up.  Not really a great situation to be in when you have a wee one that needs mothering.  But […]

Honey Banana Smoothie

Tracey at Shutterbean has all sorts of yummy smoothies and milkshakes on her blog.  I want to make all of them…the same day.  Then I stop and realize that would be excessive.  This honey banana flavor is yummy and light…not too sweet, but just right.  And using greek yogurt gives it a protein punch to […]

Preggers Mocktail: Blood Orange Sangria

Um, I miss booze.  Like, a lot.  I didn’t think I’d miss it as much as I do, but man, do I salivate when I see a good cocktail going by at a restaurant.  I also miss wine.  You would think that I was a heavy drinker before getting knocked up, but not really.  I […]

Pumpkin Spice Latte

I am a sucker for delicious seasonal coffee drinks.  Starbucks started my obsession, but I’m starting to feel that they are too sweet.  Well, with the exception of the caramel brûlée latte.  I could drink one of those a day for all of December. I love the flavor of pumpkin in the fall, and have […]

Mixed Berry Smoothie

So, I’m going to share yet another breakfast smoothie.  Forgive me, but I’m sort of obsessed.  I do this thing where I really love something and overload on it, then get sick of it.  Do you do that?  I do it with new songs way too often.  Also with foods, especially of the breakfast variety. […]
