Stuffed Olives

Gather round friends, it’s story time with Katie.  Today’s story is about the first time she met her husband’s (then VERY new boyfriend), extended family.

First, let’s start with a little background.  Adam and I started dating in November and I met his family right around Christmas.  Let me also preface by saying this, I was only meeting his mother’s side and I was a bit nervous.  Why?  It’s only one side of the family, Katie.  Chill.  Oh, you silly naive little flower.  Stuffed Olives | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Energy Truffles

You know what’s confusing? Truffles. Why is a dessert, that is delicious, the same name as a fungus people use pigs to find?  Sure, they look similar.  But they are pretty much the exact opposite.  First, fungus truffles are hella expensive.  Second, they don’t even taste the same.  You do NOT want to pop a fungus truffle in your mouth when you’re expecting a chocolate treat.  Although, I’ve never tasted fungus truffles, so maybe I’m wrong.

I’m pretty sure I would rather have these energy truffles over a fungus truffle. Energy Truffles | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Pumpkin Pie Bites

After messing these up the first three times, I almost gave up.  But I’m not a quitter so I gave it one more shot and came up with these little treats.  And shockingly, they really do taste like little bites of pumpkin pie.

Or at least I think so.  Just tell me they do so I don’t feel bad about throwing away like 50 inedible bites. Pumpkin Pie Bites | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading

Zucchini Fries- Gluten & Dairy Free

I’m a weirdo that loves going grocery shopping.  I know it’s the chore that most people detest the more.  I sort of get it too.  You have to deal with other shoppers and that one person who doesn’t realize you steer a cart like you drive a car, STICK TO YOUR SIDE PERSON AND DON’T TAKE UP THE WHOLE AISLE!! You have to think about what you need and what food to make.  You have to stand in a line and there is always someone with 50 items in the 12 or fewer lane.  It’s frustrating and boring and a chore to get over as soon as possible.

But I still love it. Zucchini Fries- Gluten & Dairy Free | Life Healthfully Lived Continue reading
