An Unorthodox Method Of Making Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream When I first encountered this recipe, I couldn't help but raise my eyebrows with skepticism. Combining bananas and spinach seemed more likely to result in some sort of healthy smoothie than in mint chocolate chip ice cream. After watching, however, I'm more than a little curious about what it tastes like. She even mentions that her daughter ate this ice cream for breakfast, and since children tend to be harsh food critics, I'm intrigued. This recipe comes to us from Dani Spies, a fitness and weight loss coach who runs On her website, she describes her approach to health as "whole-istic," taking into account how the connection between the mind, body, and emotional well-being play into a person's happiness. Learn how to make this unique ice cream in the video below, and sound off in the comments section about whether or not you would try this at home.

Candy Cane French Toast Kabobs - Clean and Scentsible These Candy Cane French toast kabobs are quick and easy to whip up and would make a fun and delicious Christmas breakfast idea for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. With two weeks to go until Christmas, it’s time to start planning out those Christmas menus! Today I’m joining Jo-Anna from A Pretty Life and some of my favorite foodies, to share our favorite Christmas breakfast ideas with you. I made up some of these candy cane French toast kabobs and have a few ideas from our previous years’ Christmas Eve breakfasts as well. Ever since I can remember, we have always had cinnamon buns and a wife saver casserole for breakfast on Christmas Day. I don’t know why I never make it any other time of the year, but it’s just one of those things that I save especially for Christmas. Once our kids were born, however, Dave and I wanted to start a few new Christmas traditions of our own. {These banana Santas are also requested for class Christmas treats as well!} Stacked Christmas Tree Pancakes Apple Tree

Mini Chicken Pot Pie Bites | Savory Style Growing up I was no stranger to chicken pot pies. Granted, the ones my mom and I loved to eat were those packaged Marie Callender’s frozen meals that you stick in the oven, but they were delicious nonetheless and would bake up to flaky perfection. I remember carefully picking out all the peas (which I considered little squishy balls of doom at the time) and ration out the perfect crust-to-filling ratio for every bite. But wait! And in fact, I’ve got something even better going for my taste buds. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but there’s been a craze going on for mini everything. It’s turning into a new obsession and I decided to capitalize on my newfound inspiration by coming up with the perfect combination of comfort food and bite-sized portions. Anyways, getting back to these little love bites. Seriously, though, can anything beat a warm chicken pot pie?

Stuffed Bread Intro Sometimes the most delicious dishes don’t have the most appetizing names, like brown butter for example. If you had never had brown butter but just knew about it from its deceptively “blah” name you would have no idea that brown butter is quite simply one of the most amazing smells/tastes known to man. Rather than being a rancid blob of butter that has transformed its shade due to age or intriguing forms of mold, brown butter has the aroma of toasted nuts and the ability to transform whatever it touches into a completely new taste. As soon as the milk solids are cooked and begin to caramelize you are nearly punched in the face with an aroma that is both comforting in its familiarity and exciting as it is unlike anything you’ve tasted. I didn’t really mean to come here to talk about brown butter rather, Stuffed Bread. What’s better than homemade bread? If you are a creative type then you will especially love this recipe because really what it is is an idea. Stuffed Bread olive oil

CREPES - gluten free I love crepes. I thought today I would suprise Taylor when she comes home for lunch with some yummy chocolate crepes. This is my first time attempting them gluten free. You can fill these with your favorite ingredients, from sweet to savory. 1 egg 3/4 cup milk 2 tablespoon melted butter 1 tablespoon sugar 1 tsp Vanilla 1/2 cup gluten free flour ( i use better batter, if your flour doesn't include xanthan gum add 1 tsp xanthan gum) In a mixer add all ingredients except flour and blend well for 2 minutes. Add the flour to the mixer and mix until just blended, about 30 seconds. The batter will quickly dry, and the moment it looses its shine, turn it over. When crepe has finished cooking, gently slide it out onto a plate.

Zucchini Cheddar Drop Biscuits Hiiiiiii, you cute people, you! You’re looking mighty fine on this sunny Monday morning. Have I told you that lately? Well you dooo….I have some biscuits for you. Wait… Before we continue with talk about zucchini and cheese and butter, can I get emotional on you for a second? Warning: This might get awkward. Apologies in advance, but I have to comment on Jennifer Perillo. And then…something magical happened: everyone did. Alright, my tears are wiped…can we talk about butter now? When I was at the farmer’s market yesterday–my Sunday routine–the zucchini and squash looked so bright. I added some cheese for nutritional value. Since I was way paranoid about the zucchini releasing too much water, I squeezed (drained) it in a cheese cloth, transferred it to a bowl, added a little salt and then flour. I was all out of buttermilk…(actually I just forgot to pick some up from the store), so I used milk instead. Hey, can we all just ignore the pencil in the left hand corner. Love you, per usual.
