Hey ya’ll! Christina from FoodApparel.com checking in. I was trying to THINK GREEN and THINK SPRING when I posted here last, and guess what? It’s GREEN outside and it’s SPRING! Yay! This homemade pesto is a sauce that features basil as one of the main ingredients. I love serving this simple sauce over angel hair pasta. It makes for a really quick dinner on a busy day. You can grill up a chicken breast and throw it in there as well. The beauty is this sauce literally takes 5 minutes to put together. And if you want to, you can put any leftovers in an ice cube tray, freeze, and then bag it up to save for another day. Nice, huh?
Think Spring, think delicate sweets, think Chocolate Drizzled Orange Oatmeal Lace Cookies. They’re dainty, delicate, fancy, and did I mention, yummy? You can keep these simple, or go ahead and dress them up with some orange zest (or extract) and chocolate drizzles. This is the ultimate excuse to make a mess in the kitchen for the sake of “art”. Serve these at your next brunch, tea party, or whenever you just want to feel fancy!
These easy blueberry bars are simple to make, and taste fantastic!
These blueberry crumble bars have been a favorite for ages. They really are quite simple to make and I don’t think you can really mess ’em up. And I’ll tell you a secret – you can pretend that they are good to eat for breakfast! ‘Cuz there’s fruit. No seriously, though, I consume way too many of these in the morning.
Christina from FoodApparel back to visit! I am such a sucker when it comes to breakfast. Seriously, you start talking about breakfast and you have my full attention. I just love everything from a good hash to a smoothie to omelet to french toast. You name it! And I will definitely eat it any time of day. In fact, my family used to have Sunday Waffle Night when I was growing up. We would just cook mounds of waffles and find whatever we could in the fridge for topping- jams, whipped cream, lots and lots of syrup, fruit, yogurt…… This was a good day at my home.
Well, keeping in the tradition, I still enjoyed lots of good breakfast even after I left home. And I would visit my brother often who lived in the same city as me when I was attending college. He and his wife never disappointed with the meal spread. He introduced me to the idea of Coconut Cinnamon Waffles.
It’s always fun to start a new year here on ‘Or so she says…’ because I get to introduce to you a bunch of new and fabulous bloggers who have joined the blog team. There is sooooo much talent and creativity out there and my behind-the-scenes gals and myself work really hard to find our very favorites and slap a ‘she’ in front of their name. We’re pretty excited about these gals, both new AND the ones who are sticking around for another year. There will be oodles of blog posts and ideas coming your way. So be here, every day, yo. There’s always something new… recipes, parenting tips, travel ideas, crafts, gift ideas, and so much more!
Today I want to introduce you to Christina from Food Apparel.
It’s time to make New Year’s Resolutions. You know, I used to be on a resolutions strike. I thought, why just make goals once a year that I’m probably going to fail at within two weeks time? I will just try to set goals when the need comes up throughout the year. While this kind of makes sense to me still, I finally came around last year and realized that I can spend a little time at the beginning of the year to focus on where my life is going – maybe not just for the year, but in general, and make some plans around that. Looking back, did I actually accomplish more? I can honestly say YES. So, I will stop going against the grain on this one and jump on the bandwagon!
Maybe you are looking to eat healthier and more natural (less processed ). And maybe you are looking to be better with your budget. Well, here’s a simple recipe that can help you achieve both of those goals. Do I have your attention? Well, keep reading then.
