February 28, 2015 by andrea | Comments Off on It’s Easy Being Green Smoothie | Filed in Beverages, Breakfast, Recipes, Snack

Smoothies are a great way to increase your daily fruit and vegetable intake. This recipe is loaded with vitamins and is naturally sweet from the fruit…no juice needed. Any blender will make a smoothie but not every blender will give you an ultra-smooth smoothie (like the ones at Jamba Juice or other fancy smoothie stores). I […]

Herb Deviled Eggs

June 21, 2013 by andrea | 1 Comment | Filed in Appetizer, Eggs, Recipes, Side Dish, Snack, Vegetarian

I never met a deviled egg I didn’t like. Seriously, I  love all versions of this classic summer potluck staple! This particular version sports tangy dill pickles, Dijon mustard and white wine vinegar, a punch of flavor from fresh herbs, and a bit of heat from cayenne pepper. Feel free to add more dill and/or chives if […]

I love egg sandwiches! They make a great meal with very little effort, and are a great breakfast on the go. Before trying this recipe, I usually just used English muffins as the foundation for my egg sandwich. The bagels, however, add a little more heft and you can switch up bagel flavors depending on […]

  These delicious thick-cut fries couldn’t be any easier to make! I served them with a smoky Chipotle Mayo dipping sauce along side grilled burgers…sooo good! Instead of using non-stick spray on the baking sheet, I lined it with parchment paper. In the past, I’ve had potatoes stick to the pan even with the non-stick spray but […]
