Butternut Squash Bacon Quinoa Salad

I’ve been craving Summer days and I indulged last week while on vacation, so I have decided to make this week “salad week” on my blog. Winter veggies are still out in full force, and I don’t mind one bit! This salad combines the earthy flavors of Winter with the sweet flavors of Summer. The slightly sweet flavor and aroma along with it’s vibrate orange color, makes Butternut squash a delight to eat. Read more …

Mixed Green Ground Turkey Taco Salad

Happy New Year everyone, I’m back!! The first few weeks of the new year have been amazing for me. I’ve been busy opening my very own Yoga Studio with my lovely business partner! It’s been a whirlwind of greatness. I have found it to be a little challenging to find a nice balance of nutrition and yoga during all of the excitement, but considering yoga and clean eating go hand and hand I’ve been able to (mostly) stick with my routine.

Wholesome Holiday Pear Cobbler

His grandparents have traditionally given each family member a box of delicious pears, and last year I made a pear cobbler with them. It was a hit, so I believe I will make it a new tradition to use those pears and make a cobbler each year. I don’t think I will get any objections from my man! Read more …

Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and that means lots of pie! Last year I wanted to spruce up my apple pie, so I tried adding spices I use when making homemade yogi tea. It worked out great! It’s an inspiration when my 9 year old niece asks me to make this pie for her in the middle of Summer! I was also inspired by other bakers who use unique spices when baking. Read more …

Pork Chops, Beef Steak & The Pioneer Woman!

Wow what an experience!! I have to thank my lovely man (Kyle) for taking a 2 hour detour on our trip home from Texas to visit The Pioneer Woman’s new restaurant, Mercantile. My sister (in Texas) recently had a little baby boy, so a trip to TX was in order. Mercantile opened three weeks ago in Pawhuska, Oklahoma, and I just had to throw it into our travel plans. I was elated when Kyle agreed to the detour! Read more …

Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

It’s time for something yummy! My Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms recipe is another hit around my house! Who doesn’t love a crispy, golden brown, cheese topped delicacy? I can honestly say I am grateful for these flavorful mushrooms, and I appreciate the farmer/gardener who harvested them. Portobello’s are my favorite! They have a wonderful dark color, and a subtle earthiness which enriches the flavors of the ingredients in this recipe. Read more …
