Ham and Veggie Crustless Quiche


The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Daisy Cottage Cheese. I remember the first time I made this crustless quiche, it was dinnertime and we lived in Austin. I wanted something light and healthy so I decided to make a quiche without the heavy crust (which I do love by the way but not the healthiest part of the dish). It baked up perfect without a crust and paired with a simple salad made a satisfying meal. The secret ingredient in this crustless quiche is cottage cheese. It helps bind everything together while adding extra protein to the dish. What I … [Read more...]

Stonyfield Greek Yogurt & A Perfect Parfait


The following post is sponsored by FitFluential LLC on behalf of Stonyfield. My kids have a Greek yogurt every morning for breakfast. No exaggeration. They are kind of obsessed. It's great because while I am getting my coffee they can go out to our garage fridge where we stock the bulk food and grab their yogurt and start eating. Makes my life a little easier in the morning...at least for about 5 minutes until they are done. I have been buying Stonyfield organic yogurts since the kids were babies. YoBaby was always stocked in our fridge so when I received this wonderful package from … [Read more...]

Multigrain Gluten-Free Pancakes

Multigrain Gluten-Free Pancakes | www.nutritiouseats.com

One of my favorite parts of the weekend is leisurely waking up to a big pot of coffee and cooking a nice breakfast. In fact the minute the kids roll out of bed they ask "what are you making for breakfast?" They love their weekend pancakes and  I love playing with pancake recipes. There are just SO many options when it comes to pancakes- blueberry, buttermilk, peanut butter, cinnamon raisin, oatmeal, chocolate chip, the list goes on. I always make them from scratch because they are too easy not too. I have, however, tried a pre-made gluten-free all-purpose mix, simply for test purposes … [Read more...]

I also wanted to share a recipe that you can use with your leftovers on Friday. Great for breakfast, lunch or dinner- Thanksgiving Leftover Potato Pancakes!

Whole Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes


(please excuse the iphone photos for today's post) Did you all have a nice weekend? We sure did because daddy came home after being gone for 3 weeks! 3 very long, summer weeks, but despite our rocky start (sick kids, ER visit for my youngest) the time apart did get a little easier this time around. I had the kids in VBS (vacation bible school) for the last week and they loved it so much that it was a great event to look forward to. My oldest had a couple flag football games which was fun too. I am exhausted though! I think I will be hitting the sack at 9:30pm every night this week. The … [Read more...]

Apple Oat Muffins and What I Ate This Month


Apple oat muffins. Sooooo good. I have been wanting to make this recipe forever. I kept seeing the little recipe card on the loose in one of my kitchen drawers and I just knew the kids would love these muffins. Also on my list of things to do has been making egg-free baked goods for my 15 month old who is allergic to eggs. Since he loves apples I knew this recipe would be perfect for him. Who doesn't love apple and oats together? A friend recommended ground flaxseed meal as a replacement for the egg and sure enough on the back of the package of my Bob's Red Mill ground flaxseed are the … [Read more...]

Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal

Apple Pie Baked Oatmeal -1

October 29th is National Oatmeal day and what better way to celebrate than with a new oatmeal recipe! We are huge oatmeal fans in this house; every variety makes an appearance in our pantry from quick cooking to rolled oats to steel cut. I have always enjoyed oatmeal but it wasn't until I met my husband 10 years ago that I started including it in my diet on a regular basis. He adores oatmeal and eats in almost everyday. When we were first married and lived in San Diego I discovered that he makes the most perfect bowl. It's always so creamy with just the right amount of cinnamon and banana. … [Read more...]

Coconut Buttermilk Pancakes and Meal Planning Monday

Coconut Pancakes-1

Happy Monday y'all! Don't forget to enter my Bob's Red Mill Giveaway! There are lots of great products to try and as promised, today I will share the recipe for the delicious pancakes using Bob's Coconut flour (one of the items in the giveaway pack). I can't believe I have never experimented with coconut flour, but boy am I in love! The recipe only uses 1/3 cup of it, yet I was shocked at how the coconut really stands out. Since I don't have a problem with gluten I substituted white whole wheat flour for the rice flour. The first thing out of the kids mouths after taking a bite … [Read more...]
