Clementine Pumpkins

So easy a baby could make these.  Okay, maybe they would need a little help and would likely chew on the celery but honestly these cuties are so simple to make plus a healthy classroom treat for fall...

Maple Roast Chickpeas

Protein is essential for our bodies.  In fact, excluding water, 3/4 of our bodies are made up of proteins and are found in every cell (muscles, organs, some hormones, and certain antibodies and enzymes).  We need protein {the building blocks of our cells} from a variety of sources to help our bodies heal.  Protein also provides us with energy and helps the neurotransmitters in our brains function.  Overall it’s pretty darn important.  I love this recipe because it can be tricky to find snacks that contain much protein.  But this recipe delivers…on protein…and taste.  A crunchy, sweet and protein-packed little snack perfect for adults and kids alike...

Vanilla Berry Fruit Salsa with Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

It's summer and berries and watermelon are at the plenty!  You can make this recipe any time of year but there is something magical about using summer berries. I fun twist on chips and salsa!  We made these recipes in culinary camp this week, it was a huge hit and there wasn't a speck left.

Carrot Jam

Hello my name is Tara and I love jam. There, I said it.  I seriously cannot get enough of homemade jam. 

Carrots are a wonderful, almost always available fresh vegetable so this makes a great jam in most seasons. I made this recipe this weekend for our Yummy Sprout booth at the Madison Moms Blog Eggstravaganza with ingredients graciously provided by our local Whole Foods Market. I had quite a few people loving this jam on top of rice crackers with a bit of fresh carrot shreds on top, mmm just like carrot cake.

Farm Salad...Is is Summer Yet?

I am participating once again in the Wisconsin Whisk "all whisked up". A chance to make and share a recipe from another Whisk member. This month I was assigned the blog Wisconsin Fun Next Exit. The author Erica chronicles her food, travel and life adventures at her simple and chic space of the internet. Currently I'm dreaming of spring which melts into the long days of summer, soup and stew recipes...I'm kind of over you right now. I decided on a recipe Erica shared a few summers back when she worked on a farm in exchange for fresh veggies (sounds like a fun trade to me). I had to make a few changes because well it's February still here in Wisconsin but I tried to stay true to her recipe.  I love the homemade dressing...tangy and balances the greens well!
