Yummy, Healthy, Happy Eats
I like recipes that taste good (of course) but are also easy to make and hard to mess up.
I’m a mom, so of course want healthy wholesomeness for my kids, but I don’t get too crazy with it. My approach is simple and a little old-fashioned in that I don’t use a lot of exotic ingredients or get terribly fancy with my spice combinations. Just yummy basics, updated for modern mom life.
My Grandma’s recipes for a quick and easy mix for an instant hot drink of sweet orange, cinnamon, and clove.
I love quick bread! I love it for afternoon snacks and easy breakfasts on days we have to be out the door early, and this tangy-sweet cranberry version is a nice break from our usual banana bread staple.
It takes some advance planning but it’s easy and really tastes wonderful.
Oatmeal and mincemeat — an amazingly easy and wholesome muffin recipe that dates back to my grandmother.
I only had four cucumber plants this year but they outdid themselves! I was overrun but didn’t have enough to warrant a serious canning effort (and didn’t really want to go there anyway) so decided try making “crock pickles” instead.
Quick, fresh, and potentially the easiest recipe EVER, this soup requires no cooking whatsoever.
