As we prepare to celebrate the 4th of July, we are compiling a list of our favorite MCK (My Clean Kitchen) summertime recipes. These are the recipes we’ll be serving tomorrow as we celebrate with friends and family. On a side note, don’t forget, fireworks are very stressful for our furry friends. Please be sure […]Read More.
Alright I admit it….I love bread. Don’t kill me. I know, the Carbs! The gluten! The sugar! Oh no I can hear the Paleo police knocking at my door!!! But whatever, like I said I love bread. Before I became an adamant clean eater I used to make these Parker House Rolls. Mmmmm rolls. At […]Read More.
Wanna impress your mother in law? How about your Martha Stewart-ish sister? Well, bring these snazzy looking eggs to easter brunch. They are super pretty and not too difficult to make. However, it does take a couple of days to make them, so get started soon! You have to start by pickling the beets, then picklings the eggs in the beet pickle juice. Which takes some “waiting” time. But, the result is worth it.Read More.
Easter is such a difficult holiday for the healthy eater. Really, there are no traditional Easter recipes that are truly clean! Jessica and I are always looking for a challenge, and this one definitely was a challenge. If you have read our blog before, you know we talk a lot about ingredient swapping.Read More.
Happy St. Patricks Day from My Clean Kitchen! In honor of everything green, we have compiled a list of some of our favorite “green” recipes. Think, broccoli, lime, brussels sprouts, that kind of green. Because it’s important to eat your greens, especially if you have gone a little overboard on the green beer. You’ll bounce […]Read More.
The hubby loves all things seafood. So for his Valentine’s Day gift this year I decided to make him a delicious meal of mussels. I don’t have a lot of experience with them so I tested the recipe a few times before perfecting it enough to serve. From the research I did, mussels are complete […]Read More.
I was looking for something fun for Valentine’s Day this year. Because let’s face it, once you have kids, its no longer just about you and your sweetie. My daughter loves chocolate and strawberries, so I thought it was the perfect kitchen activities for us. But, as I was making these I kept thinking how fun it would be to make this with my hubby. I mean I had chocolate ALL over. It would have been fun to have someone there to help me lick it off. (Ha, sorry trying to get in the spirit of Valentine’s Day, and after 7 years of marriage you have to take what you can get.)Read More.
Looking for a fun and yummy way to celebrate New Year’s Eve with the family? Fondue is an easy and delicious way to share a meal. My husband and I love fondue. Like, really love it. We have a couple of fondue pots and we use them often. I honestly never thought about how healthy […]Read More.
The chocolate fondue is as simple as melting some chocolate. We use our sterno (non-electric) fondue pot for the chocolate. It mimics a double boiler. The chocolate can be done in either. If you don’t have two fondue pots or don’t want to clean the one you use for the main course, simply melt […]Read More.
Since New Year’s Eve is all about parties, I thought I would show give you an easy and delicious party dip. And I mean….who doesn’t love dip? It really is the perfect party food. It is easy to eat, fun, and great for a crowd. Here is a simple and quick version of white bean dip.This bean dip gets a Southwest twist with the addition of chipotle peppers, chili powder, and even a pinch of cayenne. It is easy to make and ready in less than 10 minutes. I soaked and cooked the white bean myself, but if you prefer you could use a low sodium canned variety. I also toasted a little whole wheat bread to serve the dip, but tortilla chips or pits would work great also!Read More.
