My hubby is addicted it açaí bowls. Every Friday he takes our son to a local cafe and they share one together! Although I have been putting açaí packets in my smoothies for a while now, until we went to Hawaii I had never actually had an açaí bowl! (I loved it obviously!) They were so fresh and delicious, the perfect way to start our day! I knew I wanted to start making them at home because they are much more cost effective this way, and now we can have them whenever we want! I created a recipe for easy loaded açaí bowls that anyone can do right in their own kitchen!
Since coming home from Hawaii, I can't help but remember some of my favorite flavors that I experienced on the island. One of the reasons that I love traveling so much is because of the inspiration I always get from the food that I eat! We ate breakfast at a little spot on the water one morning and before our main entrees came, they served us macadamia nut banana muffins that were out of this world! If you didn't already know, macadamia nuts are everywhere in Hawaii and so they use them in tons of dishes ranging from salads to baked goods! I gave the muffin a healthy spin and added a little coconut for even more of a tropical feel! My healthy macadamia and coconut banana muffins are so good AND so good for you, that they will be your new favorite go-to breakfast!

Mother's Day is right around the corner and my hubby asked me the other day what I wanted to do to celebrate. I honestly couldn't really think of much specifically and then it dawned on me... On Mother's Day it would just be nice if maybe someone else took care of me for a change! That can look like a lot of things, but something simple like preparing a beautiful brunch for the mamas in your life can mean the world to her! I have created the perfect simple brunch for any Mother's Day celebrations that you may have! Surprise the sweet mamas in your life with my delicious Earl Grey Lemon Scones and Iced Green Tea, and make her feel extra special this Mother's Day!
Frittatas are my go-to breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I can use whatever ingredients I happen to have in the fridge and the process from start to finish is fast and easy! I love omelettes too, but let's be honest, those are soooo much work when you are making them for more than just yourself. Ain't nobody got time for that when you have kiddos to feed, or just hungry people in your life in general right? My new favorite frittata combines the flavors of gorgeous Spring produce with a classic white pizza and the outcome is insanely delicious yet simple at the same time. My white pizza Spring Frittata is the answer to any breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner any day of the week!
Y'allll...easy weeknight dinners are something that I cannot live without. They have to be ready in under thirty and have to be easy enough to be cooked with a toddler distracting me at every turn. Yesterday, for instance as I was making this very dish on Instagram Live, mid-video I had to run outside and chase Parks down the side of the house because he had escaped outside. He also proceeded to try and dump a large amount of salt into my pan, needed a new snack every second, and needed to make sure his voice was heard talking over me every chance he got! Days like yesterday (most days) can be a little stressful when all I want to do is get dinner on the table. Enter Healthy Sweet and Sour Grilled Chicken Quinoa Bowls...
I told myself I wouldn't bombard you with strawberry recipes after I made about a bajillion things with all of those fresh strawberries we picked two weekends ago, but....this strawberry bread is kind of epic and needed to be shared with you sooner than later. And I know a few of you who follow me on Instagram have actually been patiently waiting for this bread to hit your inbox! In two weeks, I have made two loaves of this bread and have eaten a piece almost every afternoon since then! My whole wheat strawberry bread is going to be your new favorite easy breakfast or afternoon snack guaranteed and I can't wait for you to try it!
