Blueberry-Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Blueberry-Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie |

There are a lot of times in the morning where I really would love to make myself a bowl of oatmeal, but don't have the energy or time to do it. So this smoothie really is super convenient and satisfying if you need something quick and filling for breakfast! Plus it is super tasty and a good substitute if you don't like a plain old bowl of oatmeal... Now for me, when I first put oatmeal in a s ...

Strawberries ‘N Cream Angel Cake Trifle

Strawberries 'N Cream Angel Cake Trifle |

Drew and I both grew up eating a ton of angel food cake, so it was only a matter of time until I popped a recipe up on the here that included it. This is such a gorgeous looking dessert and so easy to make for a romantic homemade dinner for two, dinner/dessert parties, or a substitute for heavier desserts! I know for me, I tend to stray from desserts when I'm cooking a ton because they be ...

Dark Chocolate Cherry Biscotti

Dark Chocolate Cherry Biscotti |

I should probably cut to the chase and just say I'm absolutely obsessed with these. If you have never tried homemade biscotti you would probably agree with me that they are polar opposite of store-bought. I grew up with parents that bought boxes of biscotti, and as much as I tried to like them, I just couldn't. So I decided to give homemade biscotti a shot and I am in love! On t ...

Banana Bread Granola

Banana Bread Granola |

I love granola. But it wasn't until I started reading labels last year that I realized how much sugar those "healthy" granolas you buy at the store have in them. I've tried many granola recipes on my own, but I couldn't seem to make one that had the perfect granola crunch instead of coming out like sugary oats. So I kind of gave up.. Until I saw a friend dice up bananas and throw it in the ...

I love this dish! Not only is it gorgeous, it's hearty and so delish! It's one of my favorite fall sides to throw together when I'm running low on time for dinner.

Whatever vegetables you like, they ...

Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Yogurt-Herb Sauce

Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Yogurt-Herb Sauce |

I really really love sweet potatoes! You can cook them in so many different variations that are simple and flavorful. They'll most likely be cooked in about 5 different ways at our Thanksgiving meal because I can't seem narrow down a favorite way to eat them! One thing is for certain, with holiday sides; some you want to invest time into and others you just want to throw together. This is a s ...

Butternut Squash Fettucine

Butternut Squash Fettucine |

I don’t know about you, but butternut squash is my Fall favorite!! I've been tossing it into salads, pastas, vegetable medleys and coming soon-soup! Now, pasta is the way to my heart. It's also the way to my couch, laying in a food coma if I don’t pace myself... Really, though. I emphasize the word “moderation” because you want to feel good, not sluggish after eating a meal, which I tr ...
