Fiesta Mason Jar Salads

Fiesta Mason Jar SaladsWith all three of my kiddos in school this year, I decided to join the gym and work on eating healthier. When my youngest was home with me, I would work out on our treadmill, but found myself snacking more during the day, eating some of the lunches he did (pb & j), and overall, just being focused on "mom duty". I have always eaten a fairly healthy breakfast and had no issues with dinner, but lunch was a killer. I was either on the go and had no time to make something, or I chose [more]

Death by Chocolate Muffins

Death by Chocolate MuffinsYep, you read that right! Death by Chocolate!! Chocolate overload all in one innocent muffin!

Plus, muffins are breakfast food in my mind, therefore I [more]

Banana Greek Yogurt Muffins

Banana Greek Yogurt MuffinsSince my kiddos LOVE muffins, I always try to have some either fresh in the kitchen, or in the freezer to take out and microwave. The kids enjoy them for morning treats, afternoon snacks, or even before bedtime! Last week, I had a few bananas to use up as well as a container of Greek yogurt that I needed to use. I decided to combine the two together and make a somewhat healthy muffin. The end result was a huge hit with the kids and I actually had to cut them off from trying to finish the [more]
