Lemon Bar and Coconut Overnight Oats. Oats, Lifeway Kefir, siggi's coconut skyr, chia seeds, lemon juice, lemon zest and coconut come together in a fiber and protein rich breakfast (or dessert!) that's tangy, slightly sweet and perfect for spring. Oh. And let's not forget the topping of more coconut skyr, lemon curd and a sprinkle of coconut. I don't know about you, but we are anxiously awaiting spring and sunny days around these parts. You see, it's been dreary, raining/sleeting/snowing, chilly and just plain miserable the past few weeks. And that's just the weather.

Onions, carrots, celery, garlic, chicken broth (or vegetable broth), split green peas, tomato paste and a bay leaf. We've made this soup about 5 times in the past two months because we've all basically been sick since January with one thing or another - headcolds, viruses, sinus infections, ear infections, etc. Lucca has been sick with a new bug pretty much every week (literally) and then a few days later Adrian and I get it. The only 10 days he wasn't sick since the New Year was when we went south to Hilton Head for 10 days. Maybe it's a sign [Read More]

Mini Bread Bowl Cobb Salads. When was the last time you had a bread bowl? I love a good bread bowl. But don’t remember the last time I had one.
