Peach Overnight Oats

Peaches are in season and I, personally, can’t get enough of them! After falling in love with this Sweet Peach Cobbler for Two recipe, especially its use of my new favorite in-season fruit, I decided to incorporate peaches in another new recipe. I started off by picking up Lowfat Peach Kefir at the grocery store,…

Zucchini Muffins with Cream Cheese Icing

A couple of years ago, my family decided to grow our first garden. While it was a lot of hard work, especially considering we had to dig up all the grass in the area by hand, eventually we succeeded in growing a beautiful bounty of vegetables.

Yet, at the same time, I’m way too hungry (and impatient) to wait a whole fifteen minutes for the chicken to cook. Also, I…

Peanut Butter Crunch Granola

Peanut Butter Crunch Granola. Like Cap’n Crunch… but better (for you). Not to mention, downright addicting. Seriously, once you start with this stuff, you won’t be able to stop. Especially if you’re a fellow Peanut-Butter-Lover. This granola isn’t just your typical Plain Jane, practically homologous vanilla granola. This granola contains a myriad of different and…
