Yes, I know another muffin tin recipe! Sorry I can’t help it! They are just so darn easy to make, and a great way to use up leftover veggies. I made these with broccoli and onions and topped with some fresh tomatoes and basil from my garden, but you can easily swap out any veggie combo you prefer. You could also add some bacon too. I would have, but I was out. Next time for sure!

The Super Bowl is almost here! Are you having or going to any parties? What are you planning to make? I love making food for parties. Especially foods that you can pick at throughout the night and are easy to eat (and make). Below is a list of my top ten favorite lighter recipes.
You can’t have a Super Bowl party without buffalo sauce. I’ll be surprised if the bowl isn’t empty by half time.
Careful. These little bites are incredibly addicting. Good thing their healthy and a great alternative to fried chicken wings.
One of my most popular recipes. These little stackers are super easy to make taste incredible.
Football without chili is like spaghetti without the noodles.
A challenging dish. Not to make but to walk by it without eating more.
These little bites taste delicious and are a great way to get your kids to eat veggies without them realizing it.
One of the first dips I ever started making and still a go to when needing a last minute dish for guests or a party.
You better make a lot because they go quick.

It’s a new year and I am finally getting back on track with the blog. It’s been awhile! Sooo I am starting the new year with these amazing sweet potato nachos. These make a perfect snack, appetizer for a party, or even a meal.
These are very simple to make! I gave the potatoes a good wash and sliced them leaving the skin on. I then soaked them in a bowl of water. This helps remove some of the starch in the potatoes which helps in getting crispy potatoes. Another tip to get those sweets crispy is to place them in a single layer on the baking sheet and giving them plenty of room. I ended up using 2 baking sheets.
I then topped them with cheese, black beans, diced tomatoes, jalapeno pepper, cilantro and salsa. You could also add avocado, greek yogurt, or any of you favorite nacho toppings.

Soooo I totally jumped on the pumpkin spice band wagon and made pumpkin spice granola. While it’s still in the high 80’s here in Dallas I am trying my hardest to get in the fall spirit. Fall is the one season I miss the most since moving from the Northeast to the south. Nothing like fresh apple picking, the leaves changing, and going to a real pumpkin patch.
Anyway back to the granola… This stuff is seriously amazing! I love the blend of the nuts with the pumpkin seeds and the little sweetness the chocolate chips add. Continue reading Paleo Pumpkin Spice Granola
