I don't make sweet treats very often, but this holiday season, I've been experimenting with sweet treats for our Holiday Open House. Yesterday, I made these cute little Strawberry Whipped Cream Santas after spotting something similar similar at a local supermarket. All you need are strawberries, whipped cream and some mini chocolate chips. They're naturally gluten-free too.

Hug your kids and loved ones more. Hug them tighter. Each day is precious. Last Friday's tragedy in Newtown, CT, less than an hour away from our home, has shaken our town and the entire nation. My heart breaks thinking of all the families that suffered losses and witnessed such a horrific shooting. Like many moms yesterday, I cried when I dropped my son off at the bus stop yesterday, not being able to imagine what it must be like to say goodbye to your child for the very last time and not know … [Continue Reading...]

Crockpot Cuban Black Bean Soup Recipe (Frijoles Negros) – Power Foods

Cuban Black Bean Soup (Frijoles Negros) © Jeanette's Healthy Living

Three of my boys love black beans so now that my oldest son is off to college, beans have been making a bigger appearance on our table - in chilies, soups, dips, and just regular old black beans. Although canned beans are convenient, they usually have quite a bit of salt, plus there are often chemicals in the lining of the cans. So, whenever I can, I use dried beans. They're a lot less expensive, and honestly, don't take that long to cook. Dried beans just need to be soaked first - there's even … [Continue Reading...]

Easy Stir-Fry Broccoli and Red Bell Pepper Recipe

I try to make broccoli at least once if not twice a week for my family. Whenever I find a vegetable my boys will eat, I latch onto it - it's great to be able to expand their vegetable repertoire, and broccoli is so good for them. Did you know that broccoli is packed with vitamins A and C, and is also a good source of fiber and protein? I still remember the mushy broccoli that our school cafeteria served when I was growing up - it's no wonder some people have such strong feelings about … [Continue Reading...]

Are you baking for the holidays? I used to make lots of Christmas cookies for the holidays, but last year I did very little baking because my youngest son went on a gluten-free and dairy-free diet and I was overwhelmed by the thought of trying to recreate all his favorite treats gluten-free. This year, our family is hosting an Open House Party on Christmas Eve so desserts are definitely going to be served (along with some healthier items ;)). As a mom of a child who has food allergies, I … [Continue Reading...]
