Hot Cocoa Smoothies


This is a cold and healthy smoothie that tastes like a mug of rich hot cocoa.  We made this in my recent Petite Chefs class and it was a big hit.  Some of the kids were a little nervous when we added the spinach but not a one complained as they were drinking them down.  We still have arctic temperatures here in Wisconsin but sometimes you just need to crank the heat and make a smoothie!

Butternut Squash & Apple Soup


Yep, it's still January.  Still soup weather.  Here is one of my new favorite soup recipes.  Both of the girls loved it and my husband practically inhaled it.  Granted when I asked him if he liked it more than my usual version he said "I didn't notice it was different?" Okay well at least he liked it.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies {Gluten-Free}


These cookies are a wonderful treat, light on guilt and heavy on yum.  They were a big hit with my daughters, husband, mother and niece.  I love how chewy and soft they are.  It's hard to miss gluten with cookies like these!

Banana Crepes


This recipe is my current favorite (we may have had it 3x this week).  The easiness to deliciousness ratio is exceptional!  My girls love helping me toss the ingredients in the blender! They really love squeezing a dab of honey on to each crepe (some days).  Personally I think they are plenty sweet without the honey but either way they are delicious. (And crazy healthy- only 5 ingredients)

Date and Rice Pudding


When I was a kid I remember getting so excited when dinner included rice because my mother would usually set some aside we could use for dessert.  After dinner she would let us eat it like cereal with milk, cinnamon and sugar.  Inspired by that I created this easy, healthy dessert.  It makes a great snack or breakfast too!
