Detox January and a “Blues Clues Smoothie”

Green Smoothie2

When was the last time you said ‘I love you’ to yourself? Was it with a quiet day at the spa? A cucumber eye treatment with a purifying avocado, kale and lemon masque perhaps? Prior to a few days ago, that would have been my idea of self pampering.  I’m great at wearing green veggies […]

Garlicky Chicken Thighs in Red Pepper Sauce

Garlicky Chicken Thighs with Red Pepper Sauce1

I recently picked up a copy of Fine Cooking Magazine, the Weeknight Dinner issue, and I have to say that it was a very wise purchase!  Most of the recipes are either naturally gluten-free (meaning no major substitutions are required), or are easily adaptable to be GF. This recipe in particular caught my eye as […]

LunchboxFunInsideOutSandwiches

The inspiration for this nifty little concoction came from the Taste of Home Magazine.  I thought this would be a great introduction to the joys of sandwiches for my kiddos, who are meat-sandwich adverse.  I really don’t get it, but they will only eat a nut butter & jelly sandwich.  Deli meats must be cubed […]

Chavrie

I love goat cheese.  Its creamy texture and tangy mouth-feel is the perfect complement for a variety of appetizers, grilled meats, salads and desserts.  Goat cheese pairs perfectly with beets, raspberries and strawberries.  In fact, this has been one of my favorite ways to enjoy Chavrie® goat cheese this summer (I am in my infancy […]
