It’s snowy and cold here in Indiana, which means we’re back to baking and making comfort food. At our house, muffins are definitely winter comfort food. A few years ago, I shared an easy and healthy banana oatmeal muffin recipe. Since then, I’ve tweaked the recipe a bit and taken a few pictures. Feel free to try both versions–this […]

Easy, No-Sugar-Added Crock Pot Pear Sauce (Or Applesauce!)
Our go-to contractor for home projects is incredibly thoughtful. He brings flowers for our girls, homemade pickles to eat on peanut butter sandwiches, and (most recently) 30 pears from his neighbor’s pear tree. What, pray tell, does one do with 30 pears?! Make pear sauce, of course! I washed, peeled, and cut the pears before […]
The Perfect Summer Smoothie Recipe

Copycat J.Gumbo’s Bumblebee Stew

Butterfly Pancakes–Cute, Fun, and Healthy!
In Indiana, we sometimes get snow in April. This means some of you will be sweating in shorts and t-shirts while we’re still bundled up in coats and gloves. But I can’t wait any longer. My brain is begging me to start thinking warm spring thoughts even if my town won’t thaw for a few […]
