A Surprising Spring Smoothie.

Can you believe it’s been over a month since my last blog post? :-0 I can’t! The weeks are seeming to fly by quicker and quicker these days.

As the weather is getting warmer, I have been starting to crave fruit, yogurt, and fresh herbs. This cold, creamy drink is a perfect combination of these flavors. Let me know how to like it!

Recipe: creamy banana ice-cream.

This recipe is great for you acai bowl lovers out there or anyone looking for a healthy alternative to ice-cream. One of the things I love about this food is you can have it for breakfast, a snack, or dessert. Also, you can add frozen berries for whatever you’re in the mood for.

Modern Twist On Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is round the corner…wow, that’s freaky to think about. For my “last minute” people, this is the post for you. These recipes are quick and delicious. Instead of the classic green beans, turkey, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and potatoes, I decided to create a fun twist on the classic Thanksgiving dinner. Warm-Rosemary-Apple-Wheatberry-Salad_04

What’s on the menu:

Salad: I love wheatberry’s. They are a great staple to have in your pantry and are extremely versitile.

Soup: Soup is nice to have on Thanksgiving because it is a bunch of flavors combined into a liquid. I love how soup keep you full, but not too full.

Turkey: What’s Thanksgiving without the turkey?

Drink: This cranberry, pomegranate, and green tea spritzer will sure impress your guests (and yourself!) Feel free to add alcohol of so desired.

Dessert bars: Alas, my favorite part of Thanksgiving, or any day for that matter, dessert. I recently made these after sampling them in Williams Sonoma. These pumpkin bars can simply be described as a more flavorful version of pumpkin pie, in bar form.
