It is almost summer! You know what that means? Fresh, juicy, delicious strawberries are in season! It also means we can make large batches of citrus cheesecake stuffed strawberries again.
Strawberries are great on their own but why not stuff them with cheesecake?! This makes an awesome healthier dessert for those summer cookouts. Plus, it’s so easy!
We have been making smoothies in a blender since kids, blending is nothing new. Juicing is not a new thing either but it has become very popular recently. I have only tried juices one time from The Garden Table in Indianapolis and they were so delicious! I do not make juices at home though. I actually prefer blending because I like to keep as many nutrients as possible in my drink. Some people may not like the pulp in a blended drink and may prefer juicing. If you have ever wondered about the differences, this post will quickly cover juicing vs. blending – the basics.
There are also some recipes for drinks you can make at home as well as the health benefits of each one.
On a beautiful Saturday in October, my family and I went to an apple orchard for the second time this fall. We went earlier in the fall, I think it was early September, and most apples were not ready to be picked yet. We had to make a second trip when most apples would be ready. Let me tell you, we came home with more apples than we knew what to do with, so I decided I would try (for the first time ever) to make apple desserts. I’m not calling this apple crisp a healthy apple crisp, but a healthier apple crisp because I cannot completely eliminate butter to have a proper crisp!
It’s not a secret that I love a good Bloody Mary. Not just during a Sunday brunch though, I like a Bloody Mary even in the evenings! This post will tell you all about Bloody Mary cocktails: recipes, garnishes, and a good pre-made mix for when you’re short on time or don’t like making your own drinks from scratch.
