Strawberry Dark Chocolate Granola


Hello dear friends!!! I have something super special to share with you this week that I've been working on for a while. As you know, at the beginning of every month, I take the time to dedicate and entire week to a different kind of food, and try my best to share 5 incredibly mouthwatering recipes to go along with that theme. In January, I shared some crazy delicious breakfast toasts, and in Feburary I went a little sheet pan dinner crazy 

This month, I thought it would be fun to share my breakfast love: homemade granola. 

My kids eat it up like crazy, so batch after batch is made in my kitchen. We've tried dozens of recipes, and the 5 I'm sharing with you this week are our absolute favorites! 

Homemade granola is SO easy to make. You can make it into whatever flavor you'd like, and transform the flavors from perfectly healthy way to start the day, to even a more delicious sweet treat to have while you're binge-watching Grey's Anatomy on Netflix. 

My kids eat it with yogurt, like cereal in a bowl full of milk, eat it by the handful, and even like to sprinkle it on ice cream or our favorite "nice cream"  (recipe to come!). 

So whether you're a granola expert, or just an excited newbie when it comes to this incredibly versatile breakfast delight, I hope you find a recipe you're anxious to try, and tune in every day this week for a brand new granola recipe!

Chili Verde Chicken Chili

As a family favorite, this healthy light Mexican soup is finished in under 15 minutes, and has under a handful of easy ingredients. Win-win, right?



I thought spring was right around the corner, but Utah had other plans today! We woke up to a fresh blanket of snow, after hitting almost 60 degrees yesterday. Weird. Oh well, we're firing up another pot of soup and will cozy up with yet another run of Moana and all the warm fuzzy blankets we can find. Another few weeks of winter seems much better that way! Soups like this tie everything together, that's for sure, and this one is definitely a winner.

Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Layers of corn tortillas with seasoned chicken, beans, corn, and 2 different kinds of melted cheese tie this incredible casserole together for the perfect easy dinner for a crowd. 


I made this delicious family favorite last week on Facebook LIVE (here's the video if you missed it!), and it received such an amazing response! I was hoping you all would love it, and it was so fun to have so many of you email me for the recipe. I've learned a lot so far with the past three weeks of doing FB LIVE, and I know for sure now to have a recipe ready for you guys after the video is done! 

So here it is - better late than never, right? haha.

Valentine's Day Double Chocolate Donuts


OH man, you guys. Valentine's Day is next week and we are already smitten for all things looove around here. And I LOVE these double chocolate donuts.

Like a lot, a lot. 

And you will too - no joke. They were soft, sweet, and had the most gorgeous texture. Truly a lovely treat for Valentine's Day - or any other day you're craving a special treat!

Creamy Sausage and Tortellini Soup


Can you believe it's National Soup Day?! I mean, what a perfect time of year to cozy up with a steaming bowl of the most delicious soup you've ever had. 

Yep, I totally went there. 

This soup quickly became one of our favorites last year. I think I even got my sister-in-law hooked on it, too, when we stayed with them. It's all kinds of creamy, with zesty sausage, soft carrots, hearty spinach, and the most dreamy tortellini in each bite. This soup is one you'll make over and over again, and you'll probably kick yourself wondering why you never tried it in the first place! Let's dive right in!

California Flatbread Pizza


Heeeey you guys!! It's FRIDAY!!!! 

We are on our very last day of my Sheet Pan Meal week. I thought since we traditionally have pizza on Fridays, I needed to share a pizza recipe today. 

And not just any pizza recipe. 

A killer one. THIS one. Seriously. I may have eaten half of this by myself immediately after shooting it. Interested? Here we go:
