I’m always on the lookout for healthy snacks for my family.   While a store-bought protein bar may be a convenient choice, it is not always the best option out there!  Many are loaded with all types of sugars, artificial ingredients and allergens that can cause more harm than good. Luckily, this recipe for homemade SunButter Protein Cups are easy to make, have none of the junk, all of the clean protein and taste like dessert.  It has quickly become one of our all time favorites.

Grocery shopping for a family with special dietary restrictions has gotten easier over the years.  I have found that it is safest to stay on the outside of the aisles and stick with mostly fruits and veggies.  Once I make my way toward the center of the store it is filled with all kinds of processed foods and very little of them are safe for our little guy. Occasionally you find a specialty item that seems like a life saver but for the most part, it's a tricky time walking through those areas, especially when it comes to Protein Bars.

Salt and vinegar dress up these sweet potato bites for a mouth watering, tangy & delicious take on a classic potato chip.

Salt and vinegar dress up these sweet potato bites for a mouth watering, tangy & delicious take on a classic potato chip. My salt & vinegar love affair started back when I was a child in Canada.  I used to love the Hostess brand with little devils on the front of the bag.  Those seemed to pack the most punch and made my mouth pucker more than any other.  I'm pretty sure there was a time or two that I ate so many chips that I could no longer feel my tongue!  Despite both the pain and delight I put my mouth through, my love affair continued.

Whether you are throwing a party or attending one to celebrate the New Year, it's always good to start off the year with a few delicious appetizers, like these incredibly easy Hasselback Baby Potatoes.

The perfect holiday appetizer made to impress your guests and amuse your tastebuds. V,GF,T8Free

During this years' Christmas party, I made a batch Hasselback Potatoes for the first time using baby sized spuds. I barely had time after they came out of the oven to sneak a pic or 2 because they were gobbled up, right away.  Needless to say, I just had to make them again then again until finally, no one was around to eat them (except me and I may or may not have eaten 1 right out of the pan).

I tell you this because these little munchies made everyone happy!  Hubby, kiddos, guests...really everyone.  Because I only share the "hits" not "misses",  I was determined to get this recipe with you before New Years Eve.  Then I realized...tomorrow is NYE!!! WOW.  SO in order to get this out in a timely manner, this is going to be short and sweet.  Sorry.... no long stories, no wordy explanations, just pictures and this Hasselback Baby Potato recipe.   You have parties to get to anyways, right?

Papas Nachos- this is what would happen if french fries and nachos had a baby! 

  What better way to kick off Labor Day weekend, than with football games, end of Summer pool parties and Papas Nachos! What? You've never heard of Papas Nachos before?  Don't worry, I hadn't either until I went to Mexico. But if you like loaded nachos and you like french fries, then your taste buds are in for a treat.  

Satisfy your chocolate cravings and give yourself a little boost with these vegan & allergy-friendly protein bites.

  My kids are always asking me to make more protein balls.  Every time I make them, they get gobbled up.  I could totally complain about how quickly they burn through these little treats, but I really can't .  I mean, there could be worse things they want to eat. Thankfully, you can whip up a batch or two of them in no time, because no cooking is required.  Yesterday, I tried my hand at a different combination and OH MY  GOODNESS,  these are just so so good.  Rich, chocolatey, bursting with espresso and best of all, hidden inside these little gems, is protein.  Yay for SunButter & Arbonne Chocolate protein powder!

Sweet mango & mashed avocado is heavenly, especially with the added crunch of jicama in these delightful spring rolls. Spring Rolls I absolutely love looking out to my back yard through our bay window.  Although the trees are bare and the grass is brown, the site of beautiful red cardinals grazing off the bird feeder, all but makeup for the lack of color due to winter months. And although it is still a little chilly some days, the sunlight warms the room and reminds me that Spring isn't too far off. This sunlight, not only makes this the perfect sitting area for gazing, but it also makes this the perfect place for ripening those stone fruits not quite recipe ready.  The mango and avocado I recently purchased from the market have patiently been sitting on the table, just waiting for the sun to ripen & sweeten them up for the perfect recipe. Meanwhile, as the sun was doing its thing, there was this wonderfully, crunchy jicama just waiting to join the party as I had something wonderful in store for them.
