This recipe is a special request for many of my readers. For months I have been asked for the Pan Seared Salmon recipe and I finally got the measurements perfect for all of you. Salmon is one of our favorite protein dishes in our household which means we always find new ways to prepare it. Although this way isn’t particularly “new” it’s a classic that never gets old.
Spring is finally in the air! The weather has finally started to match the season here in Montana. This means I’ve been cooking and serving up lighter recipes and dishes for the family. This is the second green vegetable recipe I have gotten my oldest daughter to enjoy eating. I had to trick her and tell her it tastes like broccoli, but it paid off because she loved it! This lemon garlic asparagus recipe pairs perfect with my Honey Garlic Salmon. To complete the meal make a pot of rice or light whipped mashed potatoes. I promise you will love it!Read More
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and one of my absolute favorite Valentine’s Day desserts are chocolate covered strawberries. Chocolate plus strawberry equals a match made in heaven. It feels good not feeling too guilty about eating a dozen all by yourself. You know since it’s fruit underneath the chocolate LOL. Read More
Valentine’s day is less than 2 weeks away. I’m still not sure how we got to February so quickly but here we are. Every year on Valentine’s Day my husband prepares a delicious dinner for me and this year will be no different. My favorite Valentine’s Day dinners usually always consist of pasta and cheese. Who the first person was to prepare pasta and cheese together deserves a Nobel Peace Prize. Okay, well maybe not a peace prize, but they deserve something! Pasta and cheese are two of my food weaknesses and they’re two stars of this Bacon Kale and mushroom pasta.Read More

French toast, eggs, and bacon is a classic breakfast combination. Who doesn’t love the combination of savory and sweet first thing in the morning for breakfast or brunch? French toast is always a favorite in our household. This is one of the recipes I make knowing my four year old will eat every single drop. But the real french toast lover in the house is my husband.Read More

Halo Top Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake
Today is officially the first day of Summer. For those of you looking for a delicious and non-guilty dessert to cool you off this summer, try out this easy and yummy Halo Top Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake.
I've recently discovered how much I enjoy Halo Top ice cream. Not only is it delicious, but it's guilt free! Most pints are 300 calories or less. Yes, the entire pint is only 300 calories! It's like finding a small piece of heaven on earth. They have so many delicious flavors and my new life goal is to try them all. Ha! But in all seriousness, it's so nice to finally have an ice cream us clean eaters can enjoy, without the guilt that usually comes with it.
This recipe is perfect for a quick sweet tooth fix. You can even pour the milkshake into popsicle trays and make healthy popsicles for little ones. If you're wanting even more nutrients in this dessert, add a small banana to the ingredients list. I promise it's just as delicious!
- 1 pint Halo Top Chocolate Ice Cream
- 1 cup Almond Milk
- 2 Tbsp Honey
- 2 Tbsp PB2
Pour your Halo Top ice cream, almond milk, honey, and PB2 into a blender.
Use the "milkshake" option and blend for 2-3 minutes.
Pour your milkshake into your glass and enjoy!
*If you want it with more ice, you can either add ice cubes to the blender, or place a freezer safe cup with your shake in the freezer for 10 minutes, or until ice chunks form.*
This past Superbowl Sunday I decided I wanted to whip up my own chicken wing recipe. I honestly had no idea what flavor I was going for beside it including some sort of barbecue sauce. Sweet Baby Ray’s to be exact. I walked into the kitchen, grabbed ingredients out of the fridge and off of my spice racks, then got to work. Once I grabbed the soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, and rice wine vinegar, I knew I was officially going for an Asian BBQ chicken wing theme. Read More
Last week, my husband and I, were having some serious delicious food flashbacks to our trip to the D.C. area, in October of last year. The reason for the flashback was us trying to decide what we wanted to eat/make for dinner, and wishing we could hop in the car, drive to Don Taco and eat delicious tacos. Specifically, their phenomenal “surf n’ turf” tacos.Read More
