Life and Fresh Salsa

This evening I made fresh salsa. I’ve made salsa before, and it is always a hit around here. I’m a firm believer in “fresh and homemade is always better.” It really isn’t that difficult – chop some tomatoes, peppers, onions, tweak it a little, and Boom!

Berry Oatmeal Bars

I’ve been in another kitchen rut since our schedule has become more hectic. With four kids, having snacks on hand is an absolute must. It is too easy to lean on prepackaged snacks – crackers, graham crackers, granola bars, etc. In an attempt to stock the kitchen with grab-and-go snacks that aren’t processed, I modified …

Peanut Butter Granola Muffins

The arctic blast has reached us all the way down here in Texas. So I have been baking comfort food for the kiddos. They absolutely love the peanut butter granola I prepare.   But lately I’ve been on a superseed kick, so I have been adding them in where ever I can.   I typically …

Superseed Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

I wanted to pass along a simple but decadent recipe I prepared this week. This dessert is soooo rich. This recipe is from Food Republic. I doubled the recipe since I only had regular muffin tins, not mini muffin tins. I also substituted agave syrup for the honey (maple syrup would work as well).  Superseed …
