Sea Salt and Black Pepper Parsnip Chips

      Ever since I discovered sweet potato chips a few years ago, I’ve been experimenting with different roots to make chips. There’s the sunchoke chip, the beet chip, the carrot chip, and the turnip chip. I like parsnips because they’re easily available and 

Java Chip Protein Smoothie

Java Chip Protein Smoothie Apparently all it took was figuring out insanely yummy combinations that didn’t leave me sloshy and hungry. Who woulda thought?! Yeah, I’m sure you already knew, but I’m behind the curve with most things. Some days are two cup of coffee

Peaches and cream popsicles

Roasted Peaches n’ Coconut Cream Popsicles I only made 3 popsicles because I ate the other peach before I got around to freezing it, but I’m sharing the original recipe for 6 popsicles. These are a dairy and sugar free treat! Makes 6 3oz. popsicles
