Berry Yogurt Bowl

Smoothie Bowl

Are you burned out on your everyday breakfast routine? I am. I have been trying to change up my morning routine such as drinking warm lemon water before my cup of coffee, drinking more water and eating a healthier breakfast other than a nutritional bar. This Berry Yogurt Bowl starts with nonfat Greek yogurt (plain, vanilla or  you favorite flavor), fruit of your choice and your favorite seeds and nuts. This can also be made as a smoothie bowl recipe using my recipe for 3 Ingredient Banana Smoothie or Berry Peach Smoothie as the base and then top with the remaining ingredients. This recipe is fabulous for breakfast or even afternoon snack.

I can’t believe it has been three years since my cookbook, 150 Best Grilled Cheese Recipes was released. April is National Grilled Cheese Month so here is one of my kid’s favorite recipes: Grilled Turkey Cobb recipe (one of the 149 recipes in my book). Grilled Cheese sandwiches are still the classic comfort food that continue to gain a resurgence in popularity. In my cookbook you will find a collection of grilled cheese recipes for lunch, dinner, snacks, appetizers, desserts and even condiments. I am offering readers 20% off if you purchase a copy before May 1st. Just click here to order.

Here are a few of my favorite grilled cheese tips:

1. Spread softened butter ont eh bread instead of adding it to the pan. This will keep the butter from burning.

2. Use grated, shredded or thinly sliced cheese for quicker melting.

3. Slice and grate the cheese when it’s cold for quicker melting.

4. The more cheese, the better the results.

5. Use your favorite bread and don’t slice it too thick (1/2-inch to 1-inch) is best.

6. Use your favorite toppings and combinations. Be creative and enjoy!

Game Day Sugar Cookie Recipe

Game Day Sugar Cookies

Tailgate season is here, and my daughter, Leigh and I decided to make some Game Day Sugar Cookie Recipe yesterday in time for the Alabama, Auburn and the Oregon game. I admit it. She did 99.9% of the work, and these came out great! This recipe is super easy. You can make this sugar cookie dough the night before. Just remove from the refrigerator, take the chill of while you preheat the oven and roll and cut them out the next day. Leigh also took this photo on my camera so I have to give her all the credit. These are perfect for all tailgating and football parties whether you’re watching the game or headed to your own children’s sporting event. Enjoy and have a wonderful week ahead! Thank you Leigh! 🙂

Brussels Sprouts-Tomato Salad

I love Brussels Sprouts this time of year, and I was so excited about a new way to serve them in this Brussels Sprouts-Tomato Salad. This recipe is perfect for Thanksgiving or your weeknight dinner, and it’s a cinch, flavorful and pretty. It was featured in the November issue of Birmingham Magazine and on NBC 13 “Daytime Alabama” this month so it’s quite the popular Brussels Sprouts recipe. I even got two out of three of my kids to try it, and honestly, they liked it a lot!
