Recipe originally posted February 2016. These Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies continue to be a reader favorite, so I’m sharing them again today!

Well, hello there! I’m so excited to share this recipe with you! I first made these cookies over a month ago and had originally planned to post them right away because they are just THAT good. But then other recipes and plans kept getting in the way and somehow I never managed to get this recipe to you.

Better today than never, right? 😉

These Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies are my favorite grab and go breakfast/snack of the moment. They are thick, soft, and full of healthy goodies like oats, flaxseed, carrot (of course), and apple.

I recently polled our Kristine’s Kitchen Recipe Group about which kind of 30 minute dinner recipe you guys would like to see next. Chicken and veggies easily received the most votes, with a stir fry coming in second. I don’t have many baked chicken recipes on the site, so I was excited to create this easy, one pan roasted chicken and vegetables dinner to share with you!

I hope your family will love this One Pan Baked Chicken and Vegetables as much as mine does. Sheet pan meals are some of my favorites because once they go in the oven, they’re usually pretty hands-off. And after dinner there’s only one pan to wash. (more…)

For the longest time I resisted buying an Instant Pot. I didn’t understand what all the fuss was about. And if I’m being honest, the idea of a pressure cooker scared me a little bit.

Well, I finally gave in and asked for one for Christmas! Mainly for the blog. 🙂 I know many of you have an instant pot and are looking for healthy recipes to cook in it.

Now that we’re a couple of weeks into January, how are you doing with your New Year’s goals? I’ve been working on organizing my home and cleaning out some of the clutter that has accumulated over the past few months. With kids, it seems like we are always accumulating more and more… it feels like a full time job to keep the house in order!

This probably won’t surprise you, but I find that an organized kitchen helps to keep everything else running smoothly. The kitchen is the place where we gather most often as a family. It’s the place where we take the time to cook meals that will nourish our bodies.

An organized, well stocked kitchen and pantry can lead to tastier, healthier meals and a more relaxed you! (more…)
