You’re probably wondering why you haven’t heard from me in a while.  It’s been quite the busy past few weeks.  I wanted to share a little bit of what’s been going on in my mind lately. I started my THM recipe blogging journey several months ago and have really enjoyed it!  It has always been a small dream of mine to share healthy recipes with people, and blogging seemed to be my venue to do so.  I have not been...

Life is so good when a meal is cooking in the crockpot…set it and forget it! There’s just something about putting your supper in a crockpot in the morning, and not having to worry about it till suppertime!  This saves me so much time running around my kitchen trying to figure out what’s for supper.  My little family of 5 (we have 3 boys that are ALWAYS hungry)are definitely ready for a hearty meal in the evening!...

A delicious way to give your body so many nutrients and minerals!!

Who doesn’t love applesauce?  With a touch of cinnamon added, this makes a great go-to snack, a side dish or even a dessert!!

These little bites of protein are just the thing for an afternoon “pick-me-up” snack, and they are great for those with a peanut allergy!! I don’t know about you, but if I don’t have enough protein in my meals/snacks, I am sorta worthless for the rest of the day!  Protein is so essential for our bodies to stay energized and focused. One of my favorite resources for healthy advice and tips is from Dr. Josh Axe. ...

The creamy, slightly crunchy, -good for you- peanut butter that is so addicting…you can eat it with a spoon!!!

This is not your ordinary chicken salad, my friend…with chunks of creamy avocado and bites of salty bacon, you could call this a revved up chicken salad!! The other day I made myself a huge salad with “the works”.  It was so delicious and filling that I bought more ingredients to make the same salad again this week.  Well, this morning as I was thinking of the tasty salad combination, I got inspired to mix it all...

The savory flavors of this seasoned salt is a great addition to your spice cabinet!! How many of you have a drawer or cabinet chock full of spices and herbs?  I don’t know about you, but I have a variety of spices that I use in many different recipes;  Particularly if I’m making a new recipe and it calls for just a teaspoon of that one spice you never use again after that meal…yeah, that’s me!  Gotta have those...

This hot chocolate is a mixture of a sweet, rich, smooth and silky cup of joy!!  You can’t take just one sip. Does anyone still drink hot chocolate in February?  I know I do!  Anytime it is cold outside, I would much rather prefer a hot drink over a cold smoothie (or any cold drink).  I don’t even care for very cold water…my favorite temperature of water is when I fill up my bottle with very cold water from the...
