Strawberry 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 “Strawberry Granola Greek Yogurt Bark”

Lemon Greek Yogurt Blender Muffins

My first ever blender muffins were banana oat and I fell in love! And when I had some leftover lemons to use up, my first thought was muffins. I LOVE the simplicity of blender muffins but I wasn’t sure how well these would hold up without the banana to bind everything together. Happy to reportContinue reading “Lemon Greek Yogurt Blender Muffins”

Easiest Turkey Meatballs

OMG. I’m typing this seconds after my husband told me these are the best meatballs he’s had IN HIS ENTIRE LIFE! Talk about a kitchen victory! And here’s the thing!

Chocolate Banana Smoothie

This rich smoothie pretty much tastes like dessert and packs one and a half servings of fruit, around 30 grams of natural protein, and two-thirds of your daily calcium.

I usually make this dish chicken cutlet style butContinue reading “Grilled Chicken with Feta & Red Onion”

Potatoes are an awesome versatile starch. You have probably heard someone say that they are a vegetable but fromContinue reading “Microwave Baked Potatoes”

Cranberry Lemon Blender Bread

OMG. This is one of my favorite successful baking experiments of all time! I modified my lemon Greek yogurt muffin recipe and added cranberries to make this bread and it came out SO good. It’s lightly sweet, tangy, and so satisfying. And a blender bread! Meaning you dump all the ingredients (minus the cranberries) inContinue reading “Cranberry Lemon Blender Bread”

Coconut Chia Pudding

I’m all about quick, easy, delicious food no matter what time of year it is. But as we hit summer weather here in southern CT, my newest requirement is cold. Zach and my little south-facing apartment is glorious especially for my dozens of plants and we love the super tall windows for the majority ofContinue reading “Coconut Chia Pudding”

Easiest Chewy Granola Bars

These are the first granola bars I’ve ever made and I cannot believe how easy they were! I’ve been making my own granola for a while now and just modified the recipe for these chewy bars.
