Green Enchiladas

I tried.  I tried like three different times.  We have had more enchiladas than a human should have to eat.  That’s a lie.  Enchiladas are delicious and there should be an endless supply.  But we have eaten a lot of enchiladas over here.

Yet I just can’t get a good picture of enchiladas made in the slow cooker.  No matter what, it sort of looks like vomit. Green Enchiladas | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

PB & J Bites

Katie tidbit #32: I used to thoroughly dislike peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  Crazy, right?  Like, what child DOESN’T like peanut butter and jelly?  Ok, maybe the kids who are allergic to peanuts might not enjoy the classic PB & J, but they have an incredibly valid reason to dislike that amazing combo.

I just remember every time I opened my lunchbox to find PB & J staring back at me I was a little less than enthused.  I will admit PB & J was better than the we-ran-out-of-sandwich-meat-so-here-is-the-last-of-the-cheese sandwich.  Those were worse than PB & J.  Sorry Mom. PB & J Bites | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Hazelnut Cocoa Crunch Cereal

Cereal has always been my go-to meal/snack/food.  As a kid, I could (and did) eat bowls and bowls of the stuff.  In college, cereal was always there for a quick dinner or late-night snack.  Unfortunately, most cereal out there is a not the best for you.  Sure there are a few good options, but the tend to be expensive.  And let’s face it, who wants to eat super healthy cereal when there are things like Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Reese’s Puffs out there?

So, for a long time, I’ve given up eating cereal.  I’ll have one of my granola recipes every once in a while, but they aren’t a regular occurrence.  Granola is delicious, but it isn’t the same as cereal ya know?

Then I decided to make sweet roasted chickpeas and everything changed. Hazelnut Cocoa Crunch | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Homemade Hamburger Helper

Fair warning:  I can’t ever remember eating Hamburger Helper as a kid.  I’m not saying it didn’t happen, but not often enough for me to have a memory of it.

Another fair warning: It is hard to take appetizing pictures of this dish.  Some food is just like that.  No matter how you do it, it’s going to look a little gross.  I mean, if I was a professional I’m sure I could use all sorts of fancy tricks to make it look delicious.  Inedible. But delicious. Homemade Hamburger Helper | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading
