Peanut Butter Protein Power Smoothie

Peanut Butter Protein Power Smoothie

Posted on Monday, April 7, 2014 in Beverages

Yep, more protein! In last Wednesday’s post, I talked about my recent decision to start including extra protein wherever I can think to add it. So, naturally, more of the recipes I share here are going to have more protein in them while I see how this new dietary tweak goes. I hope that’s cool with you!

When I decided to start packing more protein into my recipes, naturally, smoothies were one of the first things to come to mind. I mean, I’m already on a smoothie kick. So: smoothie kick, meet protein kick. And then hello, Peanut Butter Protein Power Smoothie.

Whole Wheat Vanilla Yogurt Pancakes

Whole Wheat Vanilla Yogurt Pancakes

Posted on Saturday, January 11, 2014 in Veggie Dishes Everyone Loves

Our picky toddler is back to loving pancakes (and, more accurately, the maple syrup that goes along with them) – and so I am back to making them. Far be it from me to stick with basic pancakes – not that there’s not plenty to love about those. I just like to fiddle.

And so fiddling brings us to today’s recipe, Whole Wheat Vanilla Yogurt Pancakes. Let me first say: I LOVE THESE VANILLA PANCAKES! I know that’s not terribly profound or descriptive, but darn it, I do.

Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothie

Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothie

My blueberry bush finally has blueberries! I planted it three years ago, and nothing … nothing … and then this year: bam! Blueberries! So exciting. Except … well, crap. I’m moving. Naturally. And the blueberry bush has to stay.

But. But! Our new house? A dozen, maybe more, mature raspberry plants line one of the fences in the backyard. 20 feet, maybe more, of pure happy raspberry bliss. So, you know what? I’m good with this trade. And there will be plenty of room for blueberry bushes, too. Lots of them.

And then I will make Blueberry Oatmeal Smoothies all summer long. (And raspberry ones too!)

Pumpkin Nutella Smoothie

Pumpkin Nutella Smoothie

Posted on Thursday, September 20, 2012 in Beverages

So, pumpkin. I’ve been a little obsessed with it lately. I mean, it’s my job: I’m a nesting new mom, I’m thoroughly in love with fall, I’m a food blogger, I like to eat. And Nutella too, for that matter. Good gracious, how is it that something can taste that good? Dangerously delicious stuff, that Nutella.

So I thought I’d take a couple of my obsessions and combine them into something that is also pretty much perpetually an obsession: smoothies. Delighted to meet you, Pumpkin Nutella Smoothie.

Spicy Baked Zucchini Fries with Greek Yogurt Dill Dip

Spicy Baked Zucchini Fries with Greek Yogurt Dill Dip

Posted on Monday, September 10, 2012 in Veggie Dishes Everyone Loves

So, zucchini fries. Not a new concept in the blogosphere and beyond, but something that flew under my radar until only recently. When I caught a glimpse of these crispy goodies during one of my many massive pinning sessions (ahem, can you say “Pinterest addiction”?), I knew they had to be mine.

Zucchini. Cut into fry shapes. Breaded in spicy Panko bread crumbs. Baked until crispy. Dipped in a cool, lemony, dill-infused Greek yogurt dip.
