WIAW #5 – Sayonara Summer Soup and Fall Flavors

Happy October! I’m so excited to link up with Jenn for another WIAW!  I’ve really enjoyed meeting new bloggers browsing through the link up every week! I also end up super hungry. I guess that’s a small price to pay right? I ended September on a high note! I sucessfully said “goodbye” to summer by making end of summer corn chowder.  I topped this chowder with smoked salmon, roasted tomatoes and...

Banana Chocolate Birthday Cake Feature

Banana Chocolate Birthday Cake for Mom

Birthday cake and Christmas desserts are two things I normally don’t try to healthify.  This year I had large eggnog latte and a huge slice of banana custard pie with chocolate chips and whipped cream from 131 Main for my Christmas breakfast.  It was the perfect way to celebrate.

WIAW #4 – Thin Mint Obsession

This week I’m going to share with you my favorite eats from the week. I’ve been cooking a bit more this week but also discovered a green smoothie combination I can’t get enough of! Breakfast Banana pancakes with peaches and homemade almond cinnamon butter. It was in the high 80s here this weekend so I figured I’d get my summer on Pumpkin blueberry greek yogurt. I know it sounds weird...

Pumpkin Apple Protein Muffins

Pumpkin Apple Protein Muffins

Instead of pumpkin apple muffins I was going to call these “Holy cow it’s fall in my mouth muffins” but thought that might be a bit over the top – and maybe a bit weird? Hints of nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice are the perfect complements to these soft, moist pumpkin muffins filled with apples and cinnamon. My Sunday morning started with a 4 mile run. I’m still deciding on...
