Swiss Bircher Muesli

I've been dreaming for months about recreating this Swiss Bircher Muesli I tried last summer in California - and now, voila! It's just hearty enough that it will fill you up all morning but it also has a subtle sweetness with honey and coconut that my kids adore.…

A Fresh Start

At the end of 2016, I started to feel like we were getting in a rut with dinner. I’ve always enjoyed preparing healthy dinners for our family but I found myself making the same thing every night…

A Spooktacular Halloween

It's the most SPOOKtacular time of year! Captain America and his side kick Fairy Princess are ready to Trick or TrEAT 🙂 I'm so excited to finally be sharing a behind the scenes look at our festive Halloween get together.

Picnics are one of the major joys of summer! On a sunny day, nothing beats visiting a grassy park with yummy food and your kids in tow. As a Mom to two toddlers, once the weather begins to warm up, we spend every single meal outside (weather permitting of course).

Peanut Butter Energy Bites

   Looking for a healthy snack to try in the New Year? My favorite are these No Bake Peanut Butter Energy Bites. The Twins absolutely LOVE these and eat them as snacks or sometimes as dessert after a meal. I love them and frequently double the recipe and freeze half to have for a later date.  It's a win win for all as they don't know they are packed with protein, fiber and omega-three fatty acids. They are super simple…
