These are probably my simplest energy bites yet.  And you would not believe how fast they were eaten.  They’re like cookie dough so I think you can assume how awesome these are. I realize I usually stay away from anything processed, but in this case we had some Halloween candy still hanging around that I […]

So, I kinda love casseroles.  And not too long ago I realized I love baking quinoa.  Sure, it’s cooked in a pot before hand.  And you could probably make this whole thing in the pot and serve it right away, without baking.  But quinoa does something kind of awesome when you bake it.  The edges […]

I was going to save these for a rainy day… Well, it’s not rainy, but these have been on my mind since I made them(and you know, since we devoured them all).  My kids regularly go into the fridge for whatever they want and when these were in there, I had to hide them to […]

Crispy Baked Chili Squash Fries

Apparently I’ve been hoarding recipes.  I honestly thought I had nothing to post and I just checked my “to be posted” file on my computer and found a ton of pictures waiting for me to sift through.  So here I am.  I also didn’t just check it, as it’s been a couple hours of sorting, […]
