“Trix are for Treats”

“Silly Rabbit, Trix are for Kids” … well they aren’t just for kids today!

The Slogan for this post is now “Silly Baker, Trix are for [Rice Crispy] Treats”

Many of us grew up on Rice Crispy Treats (if not at home often then we craved them on the rare occasion that we did get them). There is just something magical about the sugary sticky mess with a crunch that the cereal and the marshmallow create. With these Crispy Treats we take that sugar-overload to the next level as we use Trix instead of Rice Crispies for not only more sweetness but also a super fun burst of color!

[Crock Pot] Mexican Stuffed Peppers

The Summer Heat drives many of us out of the kitchen and onto the deck to grill.

Although I love grilled food (especially because that means Rich is doing a lot of the work), sometimes I just don’t want to eat Grilled Goodies everyday! So, this summer, when Mother Natures turns on the heat & you don’t want to turn your oven-heat on… turn instead to your Crock Pot!


Now, we often think of the Crock Pot for making thick and hearty Winter Dishes – but it can easily adapt to make delicious fresh flavored lighter summer dishes! The gorgeous Peppers that will soon be overflowing from your bountiful Summer Garden can easily be cooked up for your next great dinner in your Crock Pot.

Take your classic Stuffed Peppers and switch it up with the Mexican Flavors. Continue reading

Pineapple Salsa with Grilled Tuna

Grilling & Summer go Hand-in-Hand. Recently I went on a little bit of a Non-Tomato Salsa kick, making this pineapple salsa as well as some Peach Salsa and a Savory/Sweet Strawberry Salsa. Savory Summer Fruit Salsas go amazingly well with Fresh Grilled Summer Proteins.

This Pineapple Salsa is beyond adaptable! You can serve this over a fish (we did Tuna, but Salmon or other fish would be great) or over some tasty chicken, over pork and even over some fresh steak. In addition to serving over proteins, this salsa is of course perfect with some tortilla chips or on top of your classic tacos!

Happy Summer, Happy Salsa, & get your Eat On! Continue reading

Strawberry Yogurt Pops

There is nothing better on a Hot Summer Day than a cool, refreshing Ice Pop.

Now I know that we can all very easily buy delicious, healthy ice pops in the store (and when I get them on a great sale, I buy them as well), but you just can’t compare to the ones you make at home!! Come on, seriously – the taste of “love” in your food is just something you can’t buy!
