I still wanted something healthy but I also needed something tasty that my husband will eat…enter baked oatmeal muffins…made with NO FLOUR! These are easy to prepare ahead of time, customize with whatever toppings you prefer and grab and go as you head out the door in the morning.

Squash Egg-in-the-Hole

I’m beginning to feel like the struggle of juggling the many things I have to do will never go away. No matter how much a plan and schedule, something will always come up to throw things off track or derail the progress. This is just something I’m working on dealing with right now. Trying not to be overwhelmed by all the things I expect myself to get done and not getting frustrated when things don’t go as planned.

Happy Friday all! Getting the weekend started off right with a yummy fruit smoothie! I added rolled oats right into the blender which I haven’t tried before and it worked pretty well. A great way to get your oatmeal in the summertime.

Raspberry Scones

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend! We spent the holiday at home trying to comfort our anxiety ridden dog from the noise of the fireworks. Our puppy didn’t seem to even notice the noise but our older female dog has a tough time with the holiday every year and spent the entire night under bed. I did, however, happen to get a lot of DIY projects done over the weekend which means some great posts coming your way very soon, including antiqued mirrors and crown molding! Stay tuned for those. I also made my first attempt at homemade scones and am pretty excited with how tasty they are.

Spinach Bacon Crust-less Mini Quiches

The great thing about these little cuties is that you can easily turn this into a full size quiche for Sunday brunch by baking in a quiche dish rather than a muffin tin. I made them for weekday mornings last week so the smaller muffin size quiches worked a bit better for us.

I’m always looking for easy on-the-go breakfast items for my husband to eat on the way out the door that are still relatively healthy. These whole wheat blueberry muffins certainly fit the bill. I tried to keep the ingredients whole wheat and organic and rather than using milk, I used Almond milk instead. They turned out DELISH and perfect for workday mornings. Try them out and let me know what you think!

Pineapple Cucumber Juice

Pineapple Cucumber Juice

This has to be one of my favorite green juices. You would think since the majority of the juice comes from the pineapple that it would be very sweet, but no. This juice, in my opinion is a great balance of sweet and “green”. Just pop all the ingredients in your juicer and voila!
