Two food lovers sharing their love of nutrition through ingredient focused recipes and healthy hints

Lemon Glaze Lemon Loaf

Lemons scream summertime to us. They are refreshing, and cooking with them is so comforting. Not only do they smell delicious, but they give such good flavor to anything, including a baked good. We love the taste of lemon, and always are on the hunt for a lemon baked good that is moist, zesty and also sweet. Having a loaf laying around the house can be a bit dangerous to us, because we can polish it off in no time flat. This loaf was no exception! This Lemon Glaze Lemon Loaf is very sweet and is a perfect summertime treat!

Salted Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Cookies

If there is one thing we cannot get enough of, it’s a chocolate chip cookie. We like them literally in any form. We don’t throw the word literally around often, but this is a serious matter. We are constantly testing difference variances of this as well, in order to keep things interesting in the cookie arena. If there is one thing we know to be true about chocolate baked goods, it is that flaky sea salt makes it better every time. These Salted Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Chippers are pillow soft and also freeze perfectly so you don’t eat them all in one sitting! Although, we of course support that too and have been there many times…

Lemon Parmesan Cauliflower Gnocchi (Air Fryer and Oven Options)

Trader Joe’s. Did we just give you goosebumps? Honestly, we cannot say enough good things about Trader Joe’s, but one of our FAVORITE products they offer is their Cauliflower Gnocchi (don’t walk, run! to get a bag if you have never tried it). It is a gluten free staple but after scouring the internet, we struggled to find a favorite way to prepare it. Naturally, we made our own, and present to you… Lemon Parmesan Cauliflower Gnocchi!

Skinny Citrus Margarita

Happy Hour starts NOW! No matter the day. That is basically the theme of Quarantine, right? We definitely are missing the days of meeting girl friends at the bar for drinks and socializing, and we REALLY miss margaritas. We think a good marg is the official drink of Arizona, and the official drink of spring. Although, to be honest, we enjoy a good margarita any time of year. This Skinny Citrus Margarita is the first alcoholic recipe we have created and are SO EXCITED to share this one with you!

White Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Many of us are avoiding groceries stores, which is a difficult thing to do when it is a big part of our routine! We both usually go to the grocery store 3 times a week, and are relying on the freezer or delivery services to really cut back on grocery runs to do our part during the COVID-19 madness. To all grocery store workers… THANK YOU. It is a sacrifice every day going into work and putting your health on the line in order to keep our kitchens stocked with food, and we cannot put into words how appreciative we are of that fact. For any front-line and essential workers that are not working from home: thank you, to all of you. You are making a huge sacrifice day in and day out, and it is recognized, seen, and appreciated beyond measure. On that note, this White Chicken Enchilada Casserole is extremely easy to make and you hopefully have all the ingredients in your fridge or cupboards already!

Green Chili Egg Cups

A HAPPY Friday to all our internet friends. Do you know what a silver lining is to the quarantine? Having extra time to make breakfast, or eat breakfast in general! Another thing we love here in Arizona is green chili, which are a New Mexican chili. It is a little sweet, a little smokey, and so delicious. Tamales, enchiladas, chili verde beef…. The delicious taste of green chili knows no end. We can’t get enough, and love the flavor it adds to eggs in particular. These Green Chili Egg Cups are a perfect make ahead breakfast or snack.

We hope social distancing has allowed you to try many new things, and you are able to create, relax, and get in some baking time as well. One thing we LOVE is cookies, any kind really. We are open minded women when it comes to desserts and will pretty much eat anything, but our love for cookies rises above all other desserts. We especially love Girl Scout cookies. Yes- everything we are saying is obvious, but facts are facts. Hopefully that means you agree with us and will try this easy, healthy and delicious recipe: Gluten Free Samoa Bars!

Hearty Crockpot Beef and Turkey Chili

We both had moms who made home cooked meals growing up, and this was such a great treat. Our moms rotated through a few signature recipes, and in the winter and spring, a crockpot chili was a staple in the rotation. We both come from families of 5, which meant that our moms often looked for a recipe that was nutritious, hearty and easy. We wanted to create a chili crockpot recipe to bring back a little homecooked lovin’ and share it with you!
