Mouth Watering Mondays – Mini Cinnamon Pull-Aparts

Looking back at April of last year, Ken was in the kitchen and creating these amazing Mini Cinnamon Pull-Aparts. These would be perfect for the Easter long weekend, for guests to have a delicious breakfast or snack.

They are like a fresh cinnamon bun packaged up like little eggs and so fun to pull apart. Kids and adults would equally love these just as much!!

Protein-Packed Peach Smoothie

Cal Cling Peach_Logo (2)What are your thoughts on canned fruit? Do you think they lose their nutritional value? In winter months when fresh produce is scarce or not very appealing, do you go to canned produce? Well you should!!

The canning process has actually been proven to increase nutrients, including antioxidants and Vitamin A. Canned peaches are also nearly four times higher in Vitamin C and 10 times higher in folate than fresh peaches. Think of how far your fruit has to travel before it reaches you. In a nice vacuum packed container makes more sense for our winter months.

Not only are they nutritious, canned California cling peaches are delicious and versatile and can be included in a number of recipes like this Protein-Packed Peach Smoothie!!

California cling peaches do not contain added sugar. They are packed in water or their own light juice.

This smoothie was so delicious, I had never tried the almond milk before either and really enjoyed. Our daughter and her friend loved them too.

Ham and Egg Cups

Day 5 of 5 Days of Egg Dishes and Ken comes in with a winner of dish!! I had a skillet hash in mind for this last recipe but when I saw him creating these for breakfast one day I was sold that this would be the finale!!

Not only are ham and eggs great but he added sun dried tomatoes, sharp white cheddar and spinach, I loved it!!
