I got hipped to energy bites in 2006 when I visited this amazing Farmers Market in Hermosa Beach. Talk about a variety of healthy snacks!! It seemed like as soon as I got home recipes for these amazing granola energy bites were popping up everywhere! Isn’t that crazy how that happens? If you’re wondering what the heck is an energy bite?

Have you ever made homemade fruit rollups? Why am I just now discovering how easy it is!?! OMG I can’t stop. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve made these strawberry fruit roll-ups.

“OMG I’m sooooo freakin fat today!!!” is what I was saying last week. Do you ever have days like that? When your clothes don’t look/fit right and all you wanna do is lay around and eat cake and cookies all day? Well that was me last week.

I’ve been doing a great job at cutting back the amounts of junk food sweets I’ve been eating. It sure hasn’t been easy especially when I want to make a Dove chocolate cheesecake so bad. Oh and a caramel pecan streusel pound cake. Did I mention I got a doughnut pan last month and have been dying to make some sour cream cake doughnuts? And
There is something about vegetables roasting in the oven that puts me in a good mood. I know, I’m weird. I love everything about oven roasted vegetables, from the smokey, slightly sweet, nutty taste to that rustic appearance. They make me happy and don’t even go throwing in a roasted chicken because then I get super happy! Ahhh the aromas!! Fall is HERE folks!!! (I
I have a confession. Ready to hear it? Ok….whew. Here goes… I’ve been really, REALLY naughty this past week.

I’ve probably said this before but tilapia is my families favorite fish. It’s light, easy to prepare, mild flavored and doesn’t stink up my house when I cook it. Oh and Isaac likes it too which is a plus in my book. I’m always looking for different ways to prepare and flavor tilapia and this baked parmesan tilapia is a winner. The fish is seasoned
Are you sooooo ready for spring like I am? I get like this every year and start counting down the days around this time. Spring makes me happy, even though my allergies never fail to take me out. The pretty flowers, sunshine, and longer days are worth it. As soon as the weather starts to warm up slightly I instantly begin craving light, fresh
Buh-Bye kale chips, HELLOOOOOO spinach chips!!! These italian herb baked spinach chips are my new favorite healthy snack. I like them much better than any kale chip I’ve ever tasted, even the baked salt n vinegar kale chips I posted on this blog. Baked spinach chips just have more…oompf to them or something. Or maybe it’s just that I prefer spinach over kale in any
