Chocolate Chip Brownie Cheesecake

Have you seen all those “Tasty” videos floating around on Facebook and Instagram?  They all look so yummy and make me hungry everytime I see one.  So when I was asked to bring dessert over to some of our friends’ house, I jumped on the opportunity to give one of those recipes a try.  The chocolate chip brownie cheesecake had caught my eye because I am always a fan of brownies, and why not add something wonderful like cheesecake on top?!  I did make some tweaks, as the  ...

Christmas Cookies: Snickerdoodles 

Tonight as the snow fell, I was so excited to make gingerbread cookies.  So I got all my ingredients together and… realized I was missing the most important one- molasses!  So I hoped on Pinterest to find a recipe that I had everything for- I have never made snickerdoodles before, but that recipe caught my eye.  Talk about easy!  And the ingredients seemed to be all staples so, done and done.           Snickerdoodles  From  ...

Cottage Cheese Waffles with Blueberries

We are huge breakfast food fans at our place.  If you have been reading along with the blog for a while, it may seem like the only recipes I share are for breakfast foods, especially waffles!  The only problem with that is typical breakfast foods can be very high in sugar and carbs that cause a huge crash mid-morning.  To combat the crash, I love the cottage cheese pancake recipe in the The Eat-Clean Diet Cookbook by Tosca Reno because it has enough protein to keep me full for quite a  ...

Grandma’s Pork Chops with Sauerkraut and Applesauce

Healthy Habits + Fennel Orange Salad

Around our house, we have been focusing on eating healthier as summer time rolls around- something about the warmer weather just makes us want lighter food and more water!  Some healthy habits we have started (and hopefully will stay around):  1. Food Logging: MyFitnessPal has been amazing and logging regularly helps us stay on track with our goals.  We do allow ourselves a cheat day where we don’t worry about staying under our caloric goal but we still log it so we  ...

Butter-Fried Cod

Today we are on our way back home from Minnesota.  We had lots of relaxing time spent on the lake!  Since we caught fresh fish galore, I thought it was fitting to share my favorite way to prepare fish. This recipe could be used to prepare many types of fish- the original recipe was actually for Sole, but we had some cod in our freezer so that is what I used!  The only downside to cod was that it crumbled in the pan so the plating wasn’t quite as gorgeous as it should’ve been.  ...
