Summer Berry, Almond + Avocado Salad with Lemon Poppy Seed Vinaigrette


For some reason I thought it was a great idea to clump a lot of traveling together-- a 16 hour road trip to Colorado, a quick two day trip to Santa Cruz,  followed by red-eye flights from coast to coast.  All while 7 months pregnant :)  Excuse me if I'm slightly crabby, emotional, and whiny.   It's only because I'm tired.  And 7 months pregnant.  Oh, and I think … [Read more...]

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein Bites

These little protein bites have become one of our favorites snacks/treats.  We've made them with both almonds and cashews and love them both ways.  The cashews make a much creamier "dough" and the almonds give them a little more texture.  So I'd say, use what you have!  Or try both and see what you prefer.   Brett has a tendency to eat all of my cookie dough when I … [Read more...]

Roasted Corn & Red Pepper Salsa

roasted-corn-and-red-pepper-salsa-recipe-sweettreatsmore main2.jpg

 Grilled corn, grilled red bell pepper, and chunky avocado make this the perfect smoky-flavored salsa for summer!  I'm not sure what's better, devouring this salsa with chips or piling it high on top of a juicy burger!  We did both.  And I'm a little embarrassed to admit Brett and I ate the entire bowl of it in one meal....ahem, last night.    It's a little time … [Read more...]

Sweet Potato Turkey Burger Sliders


I hope everyone enjoyed their 4th of July weekend! We spent the holiday at my parents' in southern Colorado enjoying small town festivities.  We started our day with a family workout at the track, went to the parade, floated the river (which was a little short-lived with the little kiddos), barbecued with friends and family, and then topped it all off with the firework show--where all of the … [Read more...]

This post is sponsored by KRAFT Foods.  All opinions are my own.  This pregnancy has me craving burgers several times a week.  I guess that's what happens to me when I'm pregnant with boys, I eat like one!  It might just be the reason this baby boy is measuring a little large too :) I love grilling up our own burgers throughout the summer and it's exactly what I plan to … [Read more...]

Mango Chicken Quinoa Salad with Honey-Lime Dressing

Mango Chicken Salad main2

This salad reminds me of the short time we spent in San Juan back in February.  We had an afternoon before our cruise ship departed just to walk around the town.   We wandered into an open courtyard area where there were a few giant mango trees and two men using these long stick-like hooks to pull the mangos down from the trees. One of the gentlemen picked a few for us and we sat and … [Read more...]

Dirty Diet Coke Float final

The ever so popular dirty diet coke turned into a float! The perfect way to stay cool this summer!  A dirty diet coke was all the rage in Utah.  Little drink stops (like Swig) started popping up everywhere, all with their own twist on the dirty diet coke (and other dirty drinks!)  And by dirty I mean, a simple shot of coconut flavoring, maybe a little creme, and a fresh squeeze … [Read more...]
