Wild Rice Salad

Salad is definitely a love-hate food for most people. It is certainly not one of those foods that makes you stop and cry out, “MMM, delicious”– unless of course you are like us, and have come to really embrace and enjoy life as a chunky salad eater. However, this particular recipe takes a carb-rich approach to the salad, making it truly MMM, delicious and healthy, all in one.

Gluten Free Nut and Seed Bread

We are thankful for anyone and everyone who takes the time to read our recipes and posts, test one of them in the kitchen, and engage with us–  we hope you have enjoyed it as much as we have so far. We wish you a wonderful New Years, and thank you for supporting us these last few months!

Healthier Peanut Butter Blossoms

This little sugar nugget is essentially THE go-to Christmas cookie in our homes. There is something a little nostalgic about a peanut butter blossom, and unless you have a peanut allergy (truly, so sorry if that is you…) these are a dessert home run. Does anyone else have memories of being the designated Hersey’s kiss element to the assembly line for this cookie growing up? We sure do. This recipe does not have a key ingredient since they are just a plain ol’ delicious treat, but we did make some tweaks to ensure this recipe is slightly healthier than a traditional peanut butter blossom.

Honey Baked Ham

Turkey is to Thanksgiving as Honey Baked Ham is to Christmas! We wanted to bring our readers an extra special and cozy recipe… and not to mention delicious. Our families have always had a traditional Christmas meal, which always includes a honey baked ham. The best thing about this recipe is that it is so tasty standalone, and can also be used for many easy leftover meals, too. Kings Hawaiian rolls, anyone? We promise this classic recipe is not as intimidating as it seems, and challenge you to give it a try. Continue reading

Savory Spiced Nuts

If sweets aren’t your thing, we want to make one thing clear: we do not understand you. However, we do want to still cater to your tastes, and bring you a holiday snack with a savoy twist. This recipe can also be whatever your heart desires. If you want to use all almonds in this recipe, go crazy. If you want to use all cashews and 4 or 5 little runty peanuts, have at it. The beauty of this recipe is that it is not only simple and quick, but customizable. We also recommend using this recipe as a homemade gift idea. Make a few batches and you can distribute this mix to friends, family, neighbors and strangers!

Healthy Hot Chocolate

One thing that just feels like Christmas in a cup is hot coco. There is something incredibly comforting and nostalgic about it, and we can’t get enough this time of year. We thought we would try a recipe that allows us to have more than just one cup of this creamy drink by cutting back on the sugar and fat that the Starbucks version has, or the Swiss Miss instant pack. One thing that was mildly disturbing as we researched this blog post was seeing that Starbucks has their hot chocolate under the “Kids Drinks” section. This is not a Starbucks bash, and we are the first to admit we go almost daily, but consider rethinking giving your child 43 grams of sugar in a grande cup of coco while you’re making your next coffee run. Or just simply make the kids this recipe instead. Yes– let’s go with that option.

Tahini Peanut Butter Freezer Fudge

Now that we are super serious, fancy food bloggers, we decided to kick things up a notch and experiment with a new ingredient: tahini. After a spark of inspiration from Kale Junkie (Life Changing Tahini Chocolate Chip Cookies anyone?) and a little bit of our other favorite ingredient, Peanut Butter, this recipe was born. Tahini was new to us, and it may very well be new to you too, so we wanted to give you a little background before diving into this GLORIOUS fudge recipe. Yeah, we said it. Glorious. That may even be an understatement, because this little treat is just that good.
