Guys. Have you ever made a recipe that turns out a zillion times better than expected? Like, the first time you try it, your immediate response is something along the lines of: Damn, that’s good. And then you can’t stop eating it because it’s basically the best thing you’ve ever tasted? Well, that’s exactly what happened with this Light & Creamy Chickpea Salad with Shredded Brussels Sprouts, so I am especially excited to share the recipe with you guys!…

Hi, guys! Happy Monday! Guess where I am right now!? VERMONT! Aka “God’s country” and one of my favorite places ever! [old photo from September 2010 in Stowe, Vermont #nerdalert #sweetsunglasses] I arrived last night in Burlington, Vermont for a 3-day blogger trip hosted by Ben & Jerry’s. When I received the invitation, I knew I couldn’t turn it down. Spend time in Vermont? Eat ice cream? HELLO. It sounded like this pregnant lady’s dream…

Love mac & cheese? Me too! But, of course, I don’t love how it’s loaded with calories and fat and usually falling short on nutrients. You know what I’m talking about, right? Pasta, cheese, butter, more cheese”¦ not the healthiest ingredients. With that in mind, I created a remade version using Brussels sprouts, spinach, Greek yogurt, reduced-fat cheddar, garlic, almond milk and almond flour. Quite the all-star cast, right? I pumped up the volume of…

Hi, friends! I can’t believe it’s already September 12th! Wasn’t it just September 1st? Holy cow. I can’t believe the month is moving along so quickly, but, hey, I’m not complaining. BRING ON FALL! [source] Speaking of which, Mal and I sat on the couch last night and coordinated our calendars for the upcoming season (while Murphy snoozed on my lap). I knew things were going to be a little hectic this fall, but I…

Good morning!! I’ve really enjoyed writing these weekly recaps of what I have been eating lately. They’re a lot more exciting for me, and, hopefully, you too! With that said, here’s the next edition of My Eats Lately! Fruit, Squash, and Nut Butter Breakfast Bowl I’ve been combining pumpkin, butternut squash, or sweet potatoes with sliced banana, fresh berries, and a big scoop of nut butter. It’s the best breakfast””nutritious and satisfying. I love eating…

Thank you for all of your wonderful comments on Lindsay’s post this morning. I can’t imagine having someone close to me go through something like that. Lindsay is definitely one strong woman, and I know we all have her and Chad in our thoughts and prayers. If you’d like to make a donation, here’s the link to Chad’s page. — Mmm! Mal and I had an especially delicious dinner last night! Oooh, yes”¦ all of…

I was hungry, but I didn’t want to put any effort into make a “real” meal. I ended up throwing together some veggies, meat, and cheese, and it (surprisingly) turned out really well, so I just had to share the recipe. Introducing……

Holy crap, this is a delicious recipe. Shaved Brussels sprouts and cheese? Two of my favorite foods baked together in one dish? Heaven. It’s also the simplest recipe ever. Please make it! Ingredients: 10 ounces shaved Brussels sprouts 2 leeks (or half a small onion), sliced 1 tbsp olive oil 1 tsp minced garlic 3/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese 1 tbsp butter 1 cup milk 1 tsp Dijon mustard Salt…

Yum. I have another delicious recipe for you guys. It’s no Noodles with Peanut Sauce (that meal was epic), but it’s a good one! Introducing: Israeli Couscous with Chickpeas, Brussels Sprouts & Asparagus! Doesn’t that sound delicious? Well, it was! Israeli Couscous with Chickpeas, Brussels Sprouts & Asparagus Makes 4-6 servings Ingredients: 3/4 pound Brussels sprouts 1 medium bunch of asparagus (~20 spears) 1 15-ounce can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained 2 cups uncooked Israeli…

Let me tell you, there was some good eatin’ at the Haupert household last night. Here are two delicious recipes that I think you’ll want to try! Pasta with Roasted Brussels Sprouts & Red Onions Serves 4 Ingredients: 3/4 pound Brussels sprouts, halved 1 medium red onion, cut into thick wedges 5 cloves of garlic, minced 5 slices of bacon 10-12 ounces whole wheat pasta 1/2 cup grated Parmesan 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil…

Remember my mom’s recipe for Apple Crisp? It’s seriously delicious and one of my favorite desserts ever, but, sadly, it’s not at all healthy. I mean, there’s a cup of sugar and a full stick of butter in it. So, when Mal suggested it for dessert last night, I happily made him a batch and made myself a lighter version, which turned out amazingly. It’s no mom’s Apple Crisp, but it’s pretty close! Apple Crisp…

Just in case you missed it, here’s the first part of our adventures at Mohegan Sun: Fun at Mohegan Sun: Hotel & Happy Hour. After enjoying a cocktail at Bar Americain, Mal and I headed to BALLO Italian Restaurant and Social Club for dinner. Inspired by San Galgano in Tuscany, BALLO’s décor was designed to replicate an Italian cathedral with its huge arches, stone walls, and dim lighting. Later in the evening, servers remove the…

Tonight was one of those nights. It called for wine. When Mal got home from work, we took Murphy for his long walk of the day. While walking along and chatting, he (Mal, not Murphy) announced that it was a “wine night.” I’m not one to turn down a glass, so I agreed to open a bottle. Our stash of wine from Bin Ends is quickly running out! 😯 Ahh… wine. Sometimes, it makes everything…
