Creamy Corn & Quinoa Chowder

Creamy Corn and Quinoa Chowder || Sweet Treats and More

Owen has been asking me for weeks when it's going to be summer again.  And lately, we've been having 50 degree, spring-like weather (sorry for those of you still buried in snow).  So we've all been running around with no coat, Owen's wearing shorts and a t-shirt every day, and so excited summer is here.  That's what he thinks....that summer is here.  He's in for a rude … [Read more...]

Strawberry Banana Green Sunrise Smoothie

Strawberry Banana Green Sunrise Smoothie || Sweet Treats and More

Life lately has consisted of lots of early mornings thanks to my 20 month old who won't sleep in past six am!  To think I used to wake up at five every morning to exercise boggles me.  The thought actually makes me a little nauseous.  And I looked forward to it?  What happened to that girl?   One thing I do look forward to when I wake up that early now is breakfast. … [Read more...]

15 Minute Cheesy Mac & Toe || Sweet Treats and More

Yesterday Owen turned four!  We did the unthinkable and had about 18 three to four year olds over for a birthday party! It was crazy and complete chaos, but probably the most fun Owen has had in a while!  In honor of the birthday boy, I thought I'd share his favorite dinner lately--Cheesy Mac & Toe.  Pasta, diced tomatoes, and three kinds of cheese.  The dinner of champions … [Read more...]

Chocolate Greek Yogurt Cake Bites title main

Happy day of LOVE everyone! I hope you get pampered and eat a lot of chocolate! Are you guys going out tonight or dining in?  We're sticking with our tradition of hanging with the kids, putting them to bed, and then making dinner together.   Ask me if I've cooked dinner for my family once this week though?  Nope, sure haven't.  I chopped up some lettuce, and every ounce … [Read more...]

Raspberry Oreo Milkshake

Raspberry Oreo Milkshake || Sweet Treats and More

We got home from our seven day cruise on Sunday.  It was the best vacation ever (pictures to come!)  I already miss the sunshine, the beautiful beaches, and the hot sand on my feet.  The best part though, was feeling like I was dating my husband again...every single day.  Getting all fancied up for dinner...having time to actually get fancied up for dinner.  Talking to … [Read more...]

So on Sunday I turned 30.  GASP! I know, I just look so much younger, right?  I might be a little more devastated {or down-right depressed} about turning 30,  but I celebrated my birthday in St. Thomas lounging on the beach with my husband and some of our good friends!  We're vacationing on a cruise in the Southern Caribbean for the next six days!  Pinch me.   I … [Read more...]

If you need a last minute healthier appetizer for the Super Bowl, I've got it for you!  Chunks of avocado lightly seasoned with salt and pepper, wrapped in turkey bacon, and broiled to hot and crispy perfection.  Sounds like a winner no?   You can of course use real bacon.  But we opt for turkey bacon around here.  We've been eating it for so long that it has become the … [Read more...]

Brown Sugar-Cinnamon Coconut Oil Cookies

Brown Sugar Cinnamon Coconut Oil Cookies || Sweet Treats and More

Sometimes I wish I was as fearless as my 19 month old.  He recently started jumping off of furniture.  First he started doing jumping from the ottoman to the couch when one of us was sitting there.  He'd stand up on the ottoman, put his hands up in the air, start to lean forward and say "jum."  The first few times he waited for one of us to put our arms out to catch him. … [Read more...]

Green Chile and Corn Queso Blanco

Green Chile and Corn Queso Blanco || Sweet Treats and More

I made the yummiest, hot and cheesy dip for the Super Bowl next Sunday {Go Broncos! I'm a native of Colorado after all}. I know I've been on the healthy train lately, but this queso blanco is not on that train. Hello cream cheese! And I totally ate some:)  I made this after church on a Sunday.  We go to church from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm (yes three hours of church).  By the time we … [Read more...]
