Mexican Baked Strawberry Empanadas

These Mexican Baked Strawberry Empanadas are the perfect dessert to any Mexican dish!  They are super easy to make and so yummy!  There are a variety of fillings that you can do for empanadas but I especially love to use fresh strawberries.  I had to test these babies out before Cinco de Mayo, and after … [Read more...]

Light Greek Pasta Salad

  The blend of flavors in this Light Greek Pasta Salad is so fresh and light. The tangy lemon and sweet honey in the dressing, the fresh mint and bitter olives, and the added crunch of the cucumbers and red onions combines to make every bite a delight! With so much flavor, you would never … [Read more...]

Chicken Panang Curry

Panang Curry, if you have never had it before, is typically a little more mild than most traditional curries. The flavor, in my opinion, is somewhere between Massaman Curry and Red Curry. The balance of flavors is absolutely delicious– when I made this for my family, they were begging for more (even the toddlers)! In … [Read more...]

Grilled Caesar Salad

This Grilled Caesar Salad will change the way you eat this classic salad.  We first tried caesar salad this way at one of our favorite local restaurants in Boise called Barbacoa (this place is to die for if you are ever visiting).  Now we have to get this salad every time we go, it is … [Read more...]

Whole Wheat Blender Pancakes

These Whole Wheat Blender Pancakes with Blueberries are wholesome, delicious, and you really do make them in the blender.  They are made with raw whole wheat berries, but you don’t have to grind them.  You put the whole wheat berries right in the blender with milk and blend away.  I used my new Blendtec blender … [Read more...]

Classic Carrot Cake

This Classic Carrot Cake recipe comes directly from our Mom’s cookbook. This recipe is super old but it is my favorite, hands-down. Why mess with a recipe that is already perfect, right? The cream cheese frosting is our go-to recipe every time. It hasn’t changed and it never will. Again, perfect just as it is. … [Read more...]

Raisin Stuffed Shortbread Cookies

These Old Fashioned Raisin Stuffed Shortbread Cookies have quickly become a favorite of my Dad’s.  My mom was making them again the other day and I stole a plate full and the recipe so that I could share them with all of you.  Luckily I still ended up with a few to take a picture … [Read more...]

Lemon Chicken Pizza

We made this Lemon Chicken Pizza yesterday for Pi Day and it was so tart and yummy.  This is the perfect spring pizza, it is just bursting with fresh flavors and vibrant colors.  We started with Elise’s amazing pizza dough then layered on a lemon cream sauce.  Next we sprinkled it with shredded mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced lemons, … [Read more...]

Caribbean Coconut Fudge Bars

This recipes comes from our sister, Elise, who just got back from a week in the Caribbean (uh… jealous!) She had these Coconut Fudge Bars in a little coffee shop while visiting Caneel Bay on St. John’s. She loved these so much, she came home and duplicated the recipe (and was nice enough to share). … [Read more...]

Crossroads-Echo’s Story

I’m so excited to share this video with you!  My experience with Crossroads has really made a difference in my life.  It’s given me the energy to spend more time on the things that matter most.                        For more information on how Crossroads can help you, … [Read more...]

Shamrock Shake

It’s that time of year when everyone heads for the McDonald’s drive thru window to get their Shamrock Shake.  I am a fan of the Shamrock Shake, but it is a little pricey when buying for the whole family so I thought I would give making one at home a try.  I also wanted to … [Read more...]

Thick and Hearty Seafood Chowder

This is hands-down my favorite seafood chowder recipe (including seafood chowders that I have had in restaurants). The best thing about it is that you can use what you have on hand! Last time we made this we stirred in some fresh lobster and oh. my. gosh. it was delicious. Crab meat would be a … [Read more...]
