Super Easy & Healthy Kids’ Snack


I love finding new snack recipes for my kids. But the thing is – they have to be easy and I have to be 98% sure my kids are going to eat them. Because if I invest my time into making banana tortilla ‘sushi’ rolls, they sure as heck better […]

Healthy Zucchini Loaf


I know it’s not supposed to be, but sometimes – food is comfort. Sometimes, food is love. Food can bring back good memories and make us think of happy things. When my kitchen is warm and filled with scents of baking raisins, I’m immediately brought back to my childhood and the […]

Baked Oatmeal Apples


Sometimes, you just need a little comfort food. I don’t know about you – but apple crumble and apple pie are one of those warm, gooey, delicious treats that I could pretty much eat any time. And since I’m getting a bit sick on Halloween candy (zero willpower + 3 bags […]

Healthier Pizza Pockets


If there’s one thing for certain in life, it’s that Fridays are made for pizza. We LOVE pizza in this house and I just don’t ever see that changing. Ordering out is always an easy way to get a yummy dinner, nice and fast. But sometimes, when we’ve still got […]

Black Bean Brownies


I’ve been hearing a lot about Black Bean Brownies lately, so I decided I needed to try them out on my little taste-testers. “I don’t like black beans!!” my 6-year old immediately protested. “I have a feeling you’re going to like these. They’re chocolate.” Music to her ears. I recruited […]
