Homemade Vanilla Extract

Those of you that have read my blog for awhile know that I am trying to avoid packaged and processed things. Vanilla extract was one of those things that I had never thought about really being processed. I never thought about making my own. But after seeing a couple of sites talk about making their own vanilla extract I thought I might give it a […]

Green or Semi Green Smoothie

My sisters are going to think I am crazy for doing this and even crazier for posting about it. But I decided to post about it anyway.

Making Pancakes Even Healthier

I have been experimenting with making my overnight pancakes healthier for a while now. I have tried several versions using different amounts of whole wheat and/or ten grain flour. They have all been really good. The basic version of this pancake recipe has become one of my favorites because you make the batter up ahead of time. It is so nice when I don’t have […]

Whole Wheat Brownies

One of the challenges of trying to cook healthier has been making desserts.

Homemade Brownie Mix Recipe

Healthier Banana Bread

In my quest to try and use more whole grains in my cooking I decided to try and make my banana bread a little healthier. I used my regular Martha Stewart Banana Bread recipe. I used 1/2 whole wheat. I did use the white whole wheat though. I really like it. In fact no one even said a thing. Not even my husband who can […]

Fish Mama’s Trail Mix Cookies

In my quest to cook healthier I decided to try the Trail Mix Cookies that Fish Mama posted today. I was wanting to make something for dessert tonight but did not know what. When I saw these on her blog this afternoon I decided to give them a try. Now, they are still not super healthy. They are still a cookie, but they have quite […]
