Summer is in full swing and so is my appetite for ice cream! Soft, hard, store-bought or homemade, I friggin’ love the stuff and I am not even picky about flavors or toppings. Calories aside, the one road block I have in consuming ice cream every day of the summer season is the fact that [...]

I was talking with family recently about some major life changes they’ve made, including trying to eat less refined sugars and more protein and healthy fats. It got me thinking about “healthy” desserts and I remembered a coconut cream mousse I made years ago that was incredibly decadent and dairy free! Since we were having [...]

These fats include linoleic acid which is part of the omega-6 fatty acid family, which helps support a strong immune system and healthy [...]

Quickest Yogurt Avocado Sauce

OneHungryMama Salmon Quick Avocado Yogurt Sauce

I’m always skeptical of headlines that claim they’ll help you get dinner on the table in 15, 20 or even 30 minutes. The truth is that what takes a professional recipe developer 30 minutes is likely to take the average home cook 40 or 45 minutes. But a few recipes are truly as quick as [...]

We are officially less than a week away from Valentine’s Day and the onslaught of recipes featuring raspberry red, strawberry pink and chocolate — the colors and flavors of love and passion — has begun.
