Strawberry Cream Oatmeal Smoothie

I love this Strawberry Cream Oatmeal Smoothie! It’s super simple, full of healthy, natural ingredients and is ready in a shake! And you don’t need any frozen ingredients! Bonus. At least if you’re like me and forget to freeze fruit for smoothies!

Instant Pot Greek Gyros

Okay, so the other night I was just hanging out at the Instant Pot Community Facebook page (can you say cooking nerd? and proud of it!) when my friend Tonya messaged me. We got to talking about what we wanted to make in the IP (we’re both exited about our IP’s) and she suggested Gyros.

Blackberry Yogurt Swirl Popsicles

I hope everyone had a happy (and safe) 4th of July. I had all kinds of great blogging plans for some spectacular Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes and other party recipes, but got derailed. Completely foiled. Those posts will be coming soon and they’ll still be perfect for all the summer parties yet to come.

Avocado & Cilantro Lime Dressing

I think I talked last week about being a little obsessed about my spice mixes & concoctions – If you’re a follower, you probably already know I’m just as obsessive about my salad dressings! Today I’m obsessive about this Avocado & Cilantro Lime Dressing in particular.

Easy Home-Made Greek Yogurt Ranch

I have a confession – I’ve never warmed up to Ranch dressing. Everyone I know loves it…but not me. Sometimes I think I’m a lone hold out. Until now.

Rhubarb Pistachio Cake

Sometimes a recipe gets made because there’s a “perfect storm” of ingredients! A neighbor volunteered some rhubarb, I had just picked up a new carton of yogurt and I knew I had a stash of pistachios in the freezer. Then I happened to open up the April Martha Stewart magazine. Just one of a stack…

Build a Better Berry Smoothie

You know what I love? Smoothies. And probably you do, too? But what I don’t love? Putzing with them. Adding a bit of this or that, trying to get them thick and luscious but still sippable through a straw.

Watermelon Yogurt Salad

I came across a photo of this lovely little side salad from way back this summer! Even though it’s the dead of winter here in the Midwest (a few days ago it was -19) I wanted to get it posted – After all, it’s summer somewhere!!

Roasted Pears with Lemon Cream & Maple Caramel Syrup

For once I don’t have too much to say about a recipe – only that I became utterly enamoured with the idea of this when I was leafing through a Midwest Magazine. I was wowed! Perfect for fall, perfect for Thanksgiving and perfect for me! The recipe makes eight servings, but for these photos, I…

Did you know the Bundt cake pan was developed in Minnesota? It’s true. You betcha. And guess what? This Chocolate Banana Bundt Cake was, too. By moi! It has a surprise inside: a Rum spiked Cream Cheese, Chocolate Chip Tunnel. And to take it to the next level, it has two glazes, and not your ordinary plain…

Shaved Broccoli Salad with Apple & Tarragon

I try to eat healthy, fresh vegetables all year ’round, paying attention of course to pricing and seasonality when I can. This year, though, when summer finally hit I felt like I emerged from the house into the sunlight like one of the old-time pioneers I’ve read about, looking for anything green to eat. I’ve…
