Mini Apple Pies

December 28, 2014

Hi all!

I hope you’re enjoying the holidays and the festive atmosphere everyone seems to have this time of year. If it’s cold outside, at least there seems to be warm smiles wherever you turn. Anyway, with New Years’ Eve fast approaching I thought a good recipe to share would be my mini apple pie recipe.

White Chicken Chili

December 26, 2014

Hello all!

Happy day after Christmas to you! I hope you had a wonderful day yesterday – I certainly did. There’s nothing much better than spending the day with my family and my boyfriend (yep, he came to spend Christmas with us this year) all at the same time. And I’ll bet you ate as indulgently as I did too – which is why my latest recipe for white chicken chili is the perfect way to get back to healthier eating. Continue reading

Happy almost Christmas, my friends!

Cranberry Fluff

December 17, 2014

I’m very excited to be sharing this recipe with you. It was introduced to me just a few years ago by a family friend (it’s a longstanding Thanksgiving tradition at his family’s table), and I loved it the first time I tried it. I think you will too, and find many more uses for it besides just at Thanksgiving time, so be sure to whip up a batch of cranberry fluff. Continue reading

Crustless Pumpkin Pie

December 14, 2014

This post is a little late in coming, but I figure that pumpkin-anything is good for far longer than just Thanksgiving. I see no reason why the good old pumpkin pie should be relegated to just that one holiday. And speaking of which, what’s the best part of a pumpkin pie? The filling of course – so skip the crust and just go for the best part with my crustless pumpkin pie recipe. Let’s live a little! Continue reading

Sausage and Apple Spaghetti Squash Pasta

December 10, 2014

It’s been a while since I’ve written a post that’s paleo-friendly and low carb, and I didn’t do it on purpose, but it just sort of happened that way. I figure, with the holidays (and all their temptations) upon us, who couldn’t benefit from a great, filling meal that’s a little more figure-friendly. Once you dig into my chicken sausage and apple spaghetti squash pasta, you won’t think it’s low-calorie, it tastes so indulgent. Continue reading

Lightened Up Bread Pudding

December 7, 2014

Happy holidays everyone!

I, as I imagine you are too, am knee-deep getting ready for the holidays. Baking, shopping, wrapping and decorating – it’s all happening at once, just like always. In between this craziness though, my sweet tooth never wanes, and I’m always on the hunt for new desserts that satisfy that and don’t expand my waistline.

If you’re anything like me, and you like the ooey, gooey, goodness of bread pudding, you’ll love this lightened up version of bread pudding I whipped up recently.
