White Chocolate, Raisin & Oat Energy Bites

If I only had five minutes to do a little meal prep for the week I’d make energy bites! They are a balanced, satisfying snack packed with protein, complex carbs and fiber, and heart-healthy fats. These energy bites are literally the easiest to whip together, only dirty one bowl, and keep in the fridge forContinue reading “White Chocolate, Raisin & Oat Energy Bites”

Spicy Honey-Mustard Dressing for One

Homemade salad dressing is the bomb. It’s wicked easy to make, cheap, and helps prevent plastic waste! AND most importantly it’s delicious. This is a single serving recipe but you can also make a larger batch and store it in the fridge. You can also try a thicker, higher protein version with Greek yogurt. ThisContinue reading “Spicy Honey-Mustard Dressing for One”

Whole Wheat Tortilla Chips

We made an insane amount of pita chips for our wedding but I’ve never tried tortilla chips till today! These are so good and take just 10 minutes in the toaster oven and this recipe is for one tortilla but you can make as many as you’re hungry for. They can also either be sweetContinue reading “Whole Wheat Tortilla Chips”

Very Berry Vanilla Trifle

This was going to be my birthday dessert for my 25th this past week. We’d juuuust gotten the keys to our brand new, first ever home (ahhhhh) and were over the moon ecstatic about spending our first night there camping style (because we have to repaint next week before we move in all the furniture).Continue reading “Very Berry Vanilla Trifle”

Crock-Pot BBQ Chicken

I’m kicking myself right now that I haven’t made more crock-pot chicken. Or used a crock-pot regularly, period! It’s literally the quickest and easiest way to make juicy, flavorful, chicken. This pulled BBQ chicken is super versatile (and husband-approved)! Serve it over rice, in a taco, wrap, on a roll, or on a pizza orContinue reading “Crock-Pot BBQ Chicken”

Pina Colada Smoothie

Talk about a refreshing and satisfying smoothie! I keep frozen pineapple in the freezer regularly and often make this as I’m heading out the door for work. Freezing your own fruit is super simple! I tend to just cut up and freeze a whole or a half pineapple at a time and have a TupperwareContinue reading “Pina Colada Smoothie”

Blueberry Granola Greek Yogurt Bark

As the weather gets warmer, I transition from using the oven weekly to bake to the freezer. Yogurt bark is one of the greatest food discoveries ever and I’m bummed I didn’t know about it sooner. Greek yogurt + homemade granola + berries = mouth party And it’s perfect when you need a sweet snackContinue reading “Blueberry Granola Greek Yogurt Bark”

Chicken, Red Onion & Feta Pita Pizza

I’m doing less and less cooking on the stove or in the oven with summer being upon us (in a little south-facing apartment that we don’t want to run the A/C in all day). When we were building our wedding registry we just happened to go for a toaster oven instead of a toaster andContinue reading “Chicken, Red Onion & Feta Pita Pizza”

5-Minute Grilled Lettuce

I’ll be honest, the first time I heard about grilled lettuce I was not sure what to think about it! Cooked lettuce?! Like, what the what? But I’m telling you, I’ve not only tried it, but I’m prepared to share it with you because it’s that good! I’m all about cooking outside right now withContinue reading “5-Minute Grilled Lettuce”
