I finally got a bundt cake pan… I know, it’s crazy that I didn’t before. So now that I do, I had to try it out as soon as possible. I wanted something with both fruit and chocolate, so in the spirit of chocolate covered strawberries, chocolate chips with strawberries sounded like a delicious pairing. And it was! A dense moist cake with tart strawberries and decadent chocolate flecked throughout. Then I glazed mine with a sweet vanilla icing, and topped it with fresh blueberries and raspberries with a sprinkle of powdered sugar. The best of all things both sweet and fresh.
See, I eat vegetables, or in this case, drink them. Actually, the truth is, we eat pretty boring & healthy during the week. It’s a lot of broccoli & chicken breast. But sometimes I just don’t feeeeel like eating vegetables. Usually my guilty conscience wins over though. But that’s one of the main reasons I love a spinach smoothie; you can basically consume a giant spinach salad in the quick convenience of a drink. Plus, with a little fruit, it tastes sweet & refreshing. I’ve made a ton of variations, but this is my absolute favorite. I love it for breakfast, it’s the perfect fast lunch if you’re in a rush, a great pre/post workout snack… it can be anything. In addition to loading it with spinach, I also like to incorporate a bunch of add-ins. These can be anything you like or need, but my favorites are flax meal, protein powder & chia seeds. This is the perfect opportunity to get those additional nutrients. This is the spinach smoothie for people who think they don’t like spinach smoothies.Continue Reading
Ok guys, I promise that I have some savory recipes coming up! For some reason I’ve just had a lot of sweet stuff happening lately, but I promise it’s not all that I eat. But I’m not going to not share pies with you! How rude would that be? You might never visit again.
Look, I like mini foods. Bite-sized foods, individual servings, mini versions of normal food, things made in small ramekins – you name it (I even made a mini food board on Pinterest). How could you possibly turn down a mini version of chicken & waffles? Not only is it just plain cute, it has quite a lot of benefits also. It’s not that easy to just pass out pie pieces to several different people, unless you’re at a party with plates. But it is super easy to transport jars that have lids on them. Everyone gets their own, it’s the perfect sized serving & they’re travel-friendly. Each one is bursting with sweet lemony-blueberries & a flakey, buttery crust.
