Gluten and Dairy Free Chocolate Chip Mug Cake {cooks in 1 minute!}

I recently came across a recipe for a chocolate chip mug cookie. I didn’t just come across it, I suppose. I also made that mug-o-cookie and ate it too. Yum-o. Both gluten and dairy free, and it took less than five minutes from start to finish and was on its way to my tummy. This … Continue reading

Chocolate Cherry “Green” Smoothie

Today’s smoothie is cherry-chocolatey-oh-so-good! The rich color of the cherries combined with the deep color from the cocoa powder disguises any greens that are added. Tip: for a really quick smoothie preparation place all prepped smoothie ingredients (minus liquid and avocado) in a freezer safe container. Take out of the freezer a few minutes before … Continue reading

Peanut Butter Mocha “Green” Smoothie

Whole Wheat Chocolate Zucchini Bread

One of the things I love about summer are all of the fresh vegetables that we are able to grow, pick, and then eat up! Our zucchini plants look excellent this year and we’ve been chowin’ down on everything from grilled zucchini, stir-fried zucchini, sautéed zucchini, to zucchini bread. My family loves zucchini bread, but … Continue reading

Tart Cherry Pie Jam

I am not sure why I was amazed to see two of my children come inside from the backyard the other day with a bowl full of ripe cherries. I know there are cherry trees back there, and I realize that it is summer…the two kind of go hand-in-hand! I guess in my head, it … Continue reading
