Creamy Strawberry Banana Popsicle

We’ve been trying different popsicle flavors at our house lately. I love the simplicity of them. I love how excited my toddler is to make them. I love how excited she is to go outside and eat them. We’ve been having a popsicle snack when the 3 year old wakes up from her nap. We…

Peaches, Berries, and Cream Popsicles

Summer has officially hit here in Houston. This means two things: First, if we don’t go outside before 10AM, we don’t go outside. Second, it’s popsicle season! If you haven’t made your own popsicles before, it can be intimidating, but I promise it’s just as easy as making a smoothie. You simply put that smoothie…

Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies

If you are not a breakfast cookie convert, prepare to be. These carrot cake breakfast cookies are a great way to shake up the never ending cycle of oatmeal at our house. Eloise is on a peanut butter oatmeal kick lately. I like to keep changing things up when I can, so that there aren’t…

Snack Tray Lunches

Weather has been warm and beautiful lately, and we have been enjoying outside lunches as much as possible these days. The easiest way  to make this happen has been snack tray lunches. What is a snack tray lunch you ask? It’s where I pile all the leftovers and odds and ends from the fridge onto…

Cooking with Toddlers: Yogurt Edition

I have a confession. I do not like yogurt. I know, at this day and age we are all supposed to be working on our “gut health” and doing all the probiotic things, right? Yogurt, kombucha, kefir, sauerkraut, etc. We always had the little tubs of individually packaged yogurt with flavors that gave their best…

Budget Smoothies

Smoothies may seem like a luxurious breakfast, especially when smoothie joints charge you $5+ for a serving. However, at home, they can be a cheap, easy way to nourish yourself in the morning or as an afternoon snack.   One of my favorite aspects of regularly doing smoothies is that it can be an excellent…

Tahini Free Hummus

School is just around the corner. In fact, many school districts in our area are starting this week. If you haven’t done any lunch or snack prep whatsoever, don’t panic! I’ve got a super easy, delicious hummus recipe that is nut free and tahini free that is perfect for getting some extra fiber, healthy fats,…

Simple Fresh Fruit Popsicles

We are on a popsicle kick at our house lately. I don’t know if it’s the heat or the abundance of fresh, delicious summer fruit, but we have an afternoon popsicle snack almost every day. Because of this, I want my popsicles to be as healthy as possible. For me, that means no added sugar…

Summer Strawberry Crumble

I think I purchased my last batch of strawberries for the year. I am afraid, here in Houston, strawberry season has peaked and is on it’s way out. I thought we should pay this incredible spring fruit some respect and go out with a bang! This gluten and dairy free strawberry crumble is the perfect…
