  • Healthy Snacks for Road Trips

    My family has spent a lot of time away from home these past few weeks. Between visiting my sister in Wyoming and spending time with my in-laws, it feels like I've hardly been home. Something about those long drives in the car - people get hungry, especially little children.  I've been wondering what healthy snacks…

  • Three Ways to Use Ripe Bananas

    I used to hate bananas, especially overripe ones.  I thought they were slimy and disgusting.   I would avoid anything banana-flavored, even candy.  I even had a dislike for the movie Herbie Goes Bananas.  Yes, I hated bananas with a passion.

    Crunchy. Smooth. Natural. Chocolate. Reduced Fat. Who knew there were so many different types of peanut butter?  Sometimes I buy the store brand of peanut butter, but most of the time I buy natural, fresh ground peanut butter from the bulk section of my local WInco. It is just roasted peanuts ground fresh right there…

  • Homemade Adventures: Whole Wheat Bread

    We have started some new adventures at our house: making more food from scratch. I blame Joshua. He looked at what we were spending on bread each week, and said we might be able to save some money if I made it myself. I mulled the idea around for awhile, then finally decided to jump…

  • Quinoa Tortillas – My First Epic Fail

    Money has been a little tight lately, so I have tried to make some more homemade food.  Pretty much all the food I cook is already homemade, but I'm talking even more homemade.  For example, for lunch the other day we had nachos with homemade tortilla chips (but made out of store-bought tortillas). Well, if I can…

  • Ips: An Everyday Snack

    A couple months ago, I was approached about writing a review for a snack called Ips (Intelligent Protein Snacks).   Now, I'd never heard of them, but I was willing to give them a try.   I'm always looking for healthier options to eat than plain potato chips. I was sent a sample pack with…
