This recipe had me at chocolate. And then again at avocado. Is it possible to put two of the greatest things ever together and still taste amazing, or will all that goodness cancel the other out? The answer: YUM.

I’m always in search of recipes that satisfy both my adult brain and my inner child. My grown up voice says, “Eat chia seeds! They’re nutritious, packed with fiber, protein, Omega-3s and more!” But my kid voice says, “Marshmallows shaped like rainbows and clovers make for a perfectly respectable meal!”
This magically delicious (there, I said it) dish created by Jessica Merchant of How Sweet It Is, is pretty much the mecca of all big kid breakfasts.
Last week, I made a big ol’ bowl of this delicious salad meant to be a side dish to our dinner. I overestimated the amount of ingredients and ended up with a lot leftover. For the rest of the week, I found myself snacking on this salad several times a day and when I ran out, I made it again.
This light salad is refreshing, zesty, and healthy. There’s no shame in having multiple servings because it’s really good for you! Make it as a side to your main meal or copy me by keeping it on hand for a ready-made snack.
Pennants are to parties what candles are to birthday cake. The tapered flags are a traditional decoration that tastefully screams, “Celebrate!” When I found these pennant cookies on Bakerella, I knew I had to make them for my next party. The great thing about these cookies is they work for every occasion from baby showers and welcome homes to happy birthdays!
Peanut. Butter. Pie. Need I say more? Don’t let the word “pie” fool you. This rich and creamy recipe from
ifoodreal is high in protein, low sugar, plus it has fiber and good fats. One serving has about 381 calories — just about the same amount of calories in a protein bar. Really! Furthermore, it’s gluten free and vegan. It’s practically a vegetable! 🙂
Go make this pie, and then call me immediately because I’m coming over with a fork.
Thanks to Beyonce’s new album, I’ve had one thing on my mind since it’s release: Lemonade! Is there anything more refreshing and sweet than a tall, chilled glass of lemonade? No pool day or BBQ is complete without it, in my opinion. Since I’m all about putting an exciting twist on a traditional classic, I set out to find a next level lemonade and I found it on Confectionalism!
Next to a twist of lemon, coconut water is another favorite of mine when it comes to quenching my thirst. Add another ingredient I adore, lavender, and now we are talking!
We all know about the health benefits of drinking water throughout the day. Not only does it help your organs function better, staying hydrated is great for your skin, mood and energy levels. Staying on top of your intake can be challenging at times, and let’s face it — sometimes you want a tasty beverage or treat instead of a glass of regular ol’ H20. That’s where these three recipes come in; they are a few of my favorite water-based combos meant to help incorporate hydration throughout the day. Try them and let me know what you think!
This dish is one of those that is so beautiful you aren’t sure if you can even eat it. Well, you can — and you should! Squash blossoms are one of the most delicious plants on the planet, especially when they’re packed with pine nuts and warm cheese. It’s hard to believe these delicate flowers stem from the same place as a stalky zucchini.
I love this recipe from Dolly and Oatmeal because it would make a perfect party appetizer or side dish. I also appreciate that the blossoms are baked instead of fried, and can be made vegan in a snap.
Plus, let’s face it… they’re so pretty!
Here’s everything need to know to make 10 stuffed blossoms:
I’m so excited to have one of my favorite bakers, Meghan Rosko of Nutmeg + Honeybee, back on the blog today! She’s got a delicious and sweet recipe to show your mom how much she means to you this Mother’s Day. Don’t forget to tag us if you make these and share pics!
One of my all time favorite spring flavor combinations is Lemon + Rosemary. I decided to make some Lemon Rosemary Shortbread cookies topped with a lemon royal icing to capture the beautiful flavors and colors of spring. The rosemary creates a nice flavor boost to a regular lemon recipe, while the buttery cookie melts in your mouth.
These would be the perfect treat to make for your mom this Mother’s Day!
