I don’t know about you, but right now I have more apples than I know what to do with! We went apple picking twice in September and between the 4 of us we picked over 13 pounds of apples! I have been making apple crisps, applesauce, and apple muffins in an effort to use them all up. Today I want to share a recipe for the Maple Walnut Apple Crisp that I made for my family. It was a hit! My husband and BOTH kids gobbled it up and asked me to make another one! Continue reading
Hmmmm….What?!? That’s right, I tried Freekeh and it is one of my new favorite grains! You may be wondering what Freekeh is. Freekeh is an ancient roasted grain that has an awesome nutty, chewy texture. What’s more, Freekeh has up to 3 times the amount of fiber and protein as brown rice and is naturally low in sodium and it’s vegan! Not to mention that it is certified organic, Non GMO, and grown in the USA.
So what do you do with Freekeh? So far I have used it in my chicken stir fry and made a Mexican salad with it. Yum! It would also be great in soups, pilafs, salads, chilis, stews etc…The possibilities are endless!

We went berry picking over the weekend and we picked over 6 pounds of blueberries! The first thing that my family wanted me to make was blueberry crisp.

Strawberry season has officially begun and I can’t get enough of these sweet berries. Every June we have a family tradition of going strawberry picking at a local farm and the kids love it.

Its amazing how quickly 2 boys can pick strawberries)? Continue reading
I am so excited to share this recipe with you! I love quinoa and I’m always looking for good recipes that my kids will enjoy too. This one is a hit!

Over the past few months I have been eating a lot of sweet potatoes. I can’t get enough of them! They are a great source of dietary fiber, anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals and they taste great! I received a Paderno Spiral Slicer as a gift and I immediately wanted to make curly sweet potato fries with them. This has quickly become a family favorite so I wanted to share the recipe with you!
