Everyone loves mashed potatoes, but this recipe is especially irresistible because it has goat cheese, which creates an unparalleled creaminess. Instead of cow’s milk or cream, I use almond milk. Trust me, you’ll love it.
Tomatoes, garlic, onions and herbs all marinated into a delectable pot of goodness … my Homemade Marinara Sauce is fast, easy and heavenly. Its wonderful aroma will make your home smell like Little Italy.
Oh boy! Today we went to one of those really loud birthday party venues with all the crazy flashing games and the hundreds of screaming kids. Yea! Such fun! How would you respond? See how I coped in the latest episode of Simpleigh Cooked Pantry Confessions, “Birthday Party.”
People often ask me what are my favorite Simpleigh Smart Snacks for the road. Everyone who knows me knows I’m a big label reader. I always say that if I can’t pronounce the ingredients on the label, I don’t buy it. So, good news for you: I’ve done the research for you. I already have spent a lot of time and money, I’ve pulled out a lot of hair, I’ve gone through the frustration of buying snacks that didn’t work out and even returned many to the store. You don’t have to do any of this! Fist bump! You even can click to order!
I could eat this side dish as a meal, mainly because I love, love, love bacon. I should have named my son “Kevin Bacon.”
These Brussels sprouts are one of my family’s favorite sides. And when we have guests, it’s one of the first things to go — people always ask for more! Believe me, you can get a craving for these nuggets of goodness because they’re so satisfying, especially with the bacon’s salty, smokey richness.
This recipe transforms a simple green salad into a sweet and tangy sensation. What’s special about it? Well, it’s nutty plus creamy plus sweet/tart. And you’ll want to make sure to have all three components in your mouth at every bite.
You create a nice dinner, call the family to the table and expect a Norman Rockwell experience, but then it all goes south when they start burping and telling poop jokes. How do you cope? Watch the latest episode, called “Maui,” from my Pantry Confessions series.
This turkey taco lettuce cups recipe offers a healthy twist on the typical taco because it uses turkey, which offers a lower fat content than ground beef, and we substitute bibb lettuce for the typical fried corn tortilla shell. Structurally these tacos are a little messy, but they are worth it.
These glazed walnuts are crunchy and caramelized to perfection with honey and sugar, and the roasting brings out the nuttiness. We love them because you can eat them as a sweet snack or toss them onto almost any salad.
This smoothie is a favorite of our guest host, “smoothie operator” Nicholas, age five (see the video). It’s frozen bananas, nut butter, honey, protein powder and ice. Healthy, easy, fun.
