Happy Halloween!!! Here at My Clean Kitchen we are brimming with Halloween spirit. We carved pumpkins, decorated the windows with witches. hung spiderwebs, and even …don’t judge us too much…bought costumes for the pups!
So..if you saw Sunday’s post about our little fall outing you will understand why today we are making chocolate dipped apples. In hindsight….we may have gone a little overboard on the apple picking. But who wouldn’t…picking apples is soo much fun, it’s easy to forget that you actually are going to need to figure out something to do with them after! So I apologize in advance if we post a few apple recipes this week. But we have to do something with them I guess! Luckily we all like apples, a lot.
Hey Everyone! Sara and I are back together in Virginia this week and we decided to take full advantage of this fantastic fall weather we are having! We started our weekend fall journey by checking out the local farmers market. I know you are probably thinking…A farmer’s market…in October???? But yes…they do still exist…and they actually have some pretty cool stuff!
I’m a huge fan of nutty grainy flavor so I was excited to experiment with quinoa. I thought the flavor of the quinoa would go well with some chili kinds of flavors, and I was right. This dish is delicious. Its one of the first recipes I got right the first time! I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I did.
Lately it seems like everyone is doing some sort of pumpkin dessert. (I mean obviously right, it is October). But it seems like this year we are going more pumpkin crazy than usual. One thing that seems to be the latest craze is pumpkin cookies. So I though, why not, join in the fray and try to make my own! These cookies are great. So fluffy! And just the right amount of sweet. Oh…and did I mention they have chocolate!
Pancakes are a weekend ritual at our house. My daughter and I love to cook together and pancakes are the perfect recipe for little hands to help with. She puts on her apron and gets up on her cooking stool. Her favorite part is mashing the bananas for me. We’ve been taste testing a whole wheat oatmeal pancake recipe for weeks now and finally perfected it this weekend. My daughter loved them, in fact, she ate 4 pancakes throughout the morning. That’s a lot for a little tummy.
Hey, it’s Jessica again. I am still in Georgia this week visiting family. And there is one thing I have to say…it is definitely fall. Like actual fall…which is unusual this time of year in GA. The weather said it was going to get in the 20s this weekend…I mean what is that…it’s the south…that kind of stuff is not supposed to happen in Georgia. Anyway, I digress.
I will admit…I love breakfast sandwiches. They are easy, convenient, and delicious. I will also admit…I thought that going Paleo would mean I had to give up my breakfast favorite. I am sooo happy to admit I was wrong!
When Sara and I set out to make a Paleo breakfast sandwich I was skeptical. I mean…how can a sandwich without bread and cheese be good?!?!
I don’t know about you, but I love anything resembling a casserole. If there is something warm, baked and savory…i’m in! I am starting to love quinoa. It is so easy to cook, can be flavored with anything…and to top it off its really healthy! So I wanted to find a way to mix my love of quinoa and casseroles together in one amazing dish. and the result…..Spinach Quinoa Pie!
