10 Best Healthy Breakfast Recipes I’ve Tried and Loved

I decided today that I needed to share some of the best healthy breakfast recipes that I have tried over the last year or so.  I am passionate about eating a healthy breakfast.  I think I am part Hobbit because I would happily eat second breakfast every day if I could.  Sometimes we eat breakfast for dinner and those are always well received by the kids.  Depending on the day of the week and my to-do list, sometimes my healthy breakfast idea has to be portable.  Some days I get to sit down to a full spread and relax while I eat.  I find that by … [Read more...]

Loaded Baked Potato Quiche Recipe

This Loaded Baked Potato Quiche Recipe has been sponsored but all opinions are my own.One of my all time favorite meals is a loaded baked potato.   In my mind, the potato is really nothing more than a vessel to get all the other delicious goodness into my mouth.  My  favorite toppings include cheddar cheese, bacon, green onions and broccoli.  It may sound a bit odd but I love broccoli on my loaded baked potato and I feel a tad less guilty about my dollop or two of sour cream if there is a vegetable on my plate with it!  So, when I was sent … [Read more...]

Whipped Cranberry Butter Recipe

We are finally at the end of August here in Georgia and were blessed with a morning in the 60's last week.  That might not sound exciting to you but I am so sick of the heat and humidity that I actually DREAM about leaves falling off trees and opening up my windows again.  One of my favorite foods to enjoy during the fall is the tiny and oh so tart cranberry.  It is such an incredibly versatile food that I stock up every year at Thanksgiving when they go on sale.  Well, I am down to my last bag of cranberries so to make room for this years … [Read more...]

Cranberry and Macadamia Nut Pancake Recipe with White Chocolate Chips

Last week, my husband was out of town. As a result of his absence, I adopted the 'eat whatever the heck we want for dinner' rule.  I just hate going through a lot of work for a big dinner when it is just me and the kids eating!  One night, I decided we were doing breakfast for dinner and out of sheer laziness I grabbed for the box of premade pancake mix in the pantry.  Only to find it almost completely empty.  Great.  Now I need to find a pancake recipe that is quick and easy.  I also wanted to find one that added in fruit and nuts to alleviate … [Read more...]
