I adore making desserts with my kids….it’s one of my favorite things to do. They of course have their favorites, and this one happens to be one for my 6-year-old son.
This Apple Peach Crumble is dairy-free and gluten-free, making it a guilt-free dessert that’s easy on the tummy. It’s also fun to make and done in less than 30 minutes (a must for keeping the kids involved and interested).
Watch the video below to see the easy how-to steps for making the Apple Peach Crumble.
There’s something very satisfying about making homemade granola. For starters, you know exactly what ingredients are going into the mixture, and you can make a big batch that can feed you and your family for days.
I often make the granola during the weekend in preparation for the coming week’s breakfasts. My favorite morning meal at the moment in a Dark Cherry Smoothie Bowl (recipe coming later this week) sprinkled with this Cherry Almond Granola. But the possibilities of breakfast combinations are endless.
In addition to breakfast, this granola makes for a great afternoon snack. My kids love enjoying it right after school… the flavor and crunch is always a hit.
I hope you enjoy this homemade granola…perhaps it’ll inspire you to create your very own favorite breakfast bowl combinations.
I get excited about breakfast. I get even more excited when I have a delicious and nutritious breakfast that is really fast simple to make like this Blueberry Banana Smoothie Bowl.
I usually add almond milk when I drink smoothies, but for a smoothie bowl, I leave out the almond milk and use yogurt so it’s thicker and easier to eat with a spoon. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
It’s hard to believe that these three simple ingredients can turn into a beautiful, healthy dessert in almost no time. I love making these brownies with my kids – minimal ingredients and no baking makes it easy, with almost-instant gratification. Of course the best part of the process is eating them :)
When I have some free time to explore new recipes, I often find myself creating a healthy sweet treat. There is no denying that I am a chocoholic. This dessert is wheat free, but is so decadent and yummy!
As you can see from the video, the cake is made so easily and quickly. For more videos like this, visit (and subscribe) to my YouTube channel. And for the full recipe, see below.
Sports fan or not, the Superbowl is a classic time for friends and family to get together. Perhaps you’re cheering for a specific team or player…. Or if watching the game isn’t your thing, perhaps you’ll be watching for the hundreds of commercials debuting during the prime time spot. Either way, who doesn’t love an excuse for a gathering?
I love hosting and the prep before the party is a great way to spend some time in the kitchen with my family and create some fun meals and snacks for everyone to enjoy. For an occasion like this, I typically tap into my vault of favorite appetizers that always get rave reviews. If you’re hosting at your house, or taking a dish to a friends’, here are some simple, yet delicious, recipes that you can show off.
Enjoy the game!

Sometimes the hardest part of preparing a lunch or dinner meal is figuring out what you’re in the mood for. When in doubt, my go-to is a quinoa bowl full of my favorite foods. In this case, I put together chickpeas, kidney beans, carrots, and celery. A simple combination that satisfies my craving for a healthy, filling lunch that keeps me happy all afternoon.
To top it off, I put together an easy dressing with ingredients I had on hand. I love balsamic vinegar and with a dash of salt, pepper and oregano, I was able to add just the right amount of flavor.
Although this recipe does contain some sugar and dairy, it is still a healthy wheat-free dessert option. The zesty lemon citrus hits the spot and the grab-and-go nature of the bars is perfect for an after noon snack or post-dinner dessert.
To me, a warm, hearty stew screams “winter.” As soon as the weather turns chilly, I am pulling out my soup, stew and chili recipes and creating new ones with the season’s best produce. For stews, I love going to the farmer’s market for fresh, local vegetables to combine in one healthy dish.
This White Chicken Stew is a favorite. It is hearty, yet healthy, and full of lean protein. The vegetables along with the beans and chicken create an amazing balance of taste and texture. The meal will leave you and the family feeling warm, happy and satisfied. It’s also easy to make extra servings for delicious (and easy) leftovers.
I love oatmeal for breakfast. It offers a healthy, yet filling, option to kick-off the day. Oats are packed with protein, calcium, and iron, and can provide the perfect jump-start. You can create infinite combinations by simply adding your favorite fruits, nuts, and natural sweeteners. This Cinnamon Apple Pecan Oatmeal is a favorite of mine. It’s easy, delicious, and oh-so-good for you.
If you struggle to enjoy oatmeal, this recipe will surely change your mind.
