Sweet Strawberry Rhubarb Juice

I know what you’re probably thinking.  You juiced rhubarb?  Yep, I did.  If you’ve ever worked with rhubarb, you know how incredibly tart it is.  It’s not the kind of thing you want to bite right into, but this morning I tried a little experiment.  I juiced it.  I added fresh strawberries (my favorite combination) and […]

Strawberries & Cream Oatmeal with Chopped Pistachios

This morning was the first time I have ever gotten really, really excited about oatmeal.  The plainness of it has always struck me as rather boring.  I usually top it with fresh fruit, nuts and a drizzle of maple syrup to jazz it up a bit, but today’s version took this breakfast staple to new […]

Thyme for Spring Roasted Veggies with Lemon

This year I was super excited for daylight savings time.  It’s not because of losing an hour, (I think most of us will be missing that extra hour of sleep)  but because I love word play.  I’ve been dying to post something with thyme for daylight savings time.  It only seemed appropriate to use some fresh […]

Banana Mocha Shake

I love smoothies for their simplicity and how they make a satisfying meal or treat.  I whipped up this shake last week when I was busy, on the go, and in need of a sweet fix.  It is definitely Starbucks inspired, but made healthy, of course.  Try it with a dollop of Coconut Chantilly Cream […]
