Sunday Dinner: Mustard Maple Pork Loin

I love Sundays! Growing up, my mom would cook a big Sunday lunch after church. It was almost always a casserole, vegetables, applesauce, and rolls. I love handing down traditions, so I now like to cook Sunday dinner for my family. When I married my husband, I will confess I was queen of casseroles.  I […]

Roasted Mustard Potatoes and Food Fave Friday

It’s Friday! I am usually not that excited but this weekend is different. I may not live in the South anymore, but this weekend is the start of tradition, food and FOOTBALL!

Blueberry Banana Quinoa Parfait

I have been on a major quinoa kick lately. Honestly, I could eat it for every meal. I mostly eat it like oatmeal in the morning with banana, walnuts and almond milk. My 3-year-old daughter got really excited about helping me in the kitchen this morning with this recipe. Being the creative 3-year-old she is, […]

Not My Mama’s Chocolate Pudding (Dairy Free)

It’s hard not to love chocolate. I love it even more now that a new study from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition showed lower insulin levels and blood pressure readings with consumption of this flavonoid rich food. Dark chocolate is better known for its richer flavonoid content but this study used different varieties of […]

Mini Strawberry Country Cupcakes (Gluten Free & Whole Wheat)

My husband, kids, and I made a spread for the Super Bowl last night. I must confess I didn’t get to watch much of it because what was supposed to be a quick dessert ended up being a full on experiment. Three hours later I have gluten-free and whole wheat mini cupcakes, dozens of them. […]
