Family Smoothies With Frozen Nectarines & Pumpkin Pie Spice

IMG_6807

Have you seen the bags of frozen sliced peaches and nectarines at Trader Joe’s? They are a nice change from my usual go-to ingredients. Sometimes I need just a little more sweetness and some tartness to complete what I’m blending into my smoothie. I made these two smoothies during my next-day prep last night and I was really pleased with how smooth and balanced they turned out. There is not any one distinct flavor, including the pumpkin pie spice and banana. Both have a lightly creamy texture. The kids’ smoothie somehow tasted like a strawberry milkshake!

Stacked Roasted Sweet Potato Enchilada Pie

Oh enchilada pie, where have you been all my life? Actually I attempted stacked enchiladas once but because I used a large 9x12 dish so everything was too spread out with only one layer of filling. A thicker, layered pie is essential. Two things we loved most: 1. I did NOT miss rolling up each individual [...]

My Big Fat Greek Warm Orzo Bowl + Homemade Mediterranean Seasoning

My Big Fat Greek Warm Orzo Bowl + Homemade Mediterranean Seasoning

You guys. 2016 has barely begun and I'm knee deep in scurrying and scrambling and...well, wanting to stay warm. Between my lack of time, the kids' love for pasta, and mine for a hearty soup, this 30 minute Greek influenced dish is a keeper. If I see a novelty product on sale, like this gluten [...]

Meatless Monday: Parmesan Penne With End of Summer Vegetables & Garden Herbs

Meatless Monday: Parmesan Penne With End of Summer Vegetables & Garden Herbs

We don't eat a lot of pasta around here partly because of the starchy carbs and also because I want to be an unconventional vegetarian. In fact, my biggest compliment of the vegetarian food prepared for us on the Disney cruise last year is how impressive it was that in 7 dinners, I never once [...]
