I add Flax to smoothies and baked goods occasionally. Mark Sisson has a good article about too much Flax, so don’t over do it. Here is one way to get a little extra Omega- 3- Fatty Acids into my families diet. Cookies work every time for a 1 year old and my super hubby! These cookies are great for pregnancy as well- blackstrap molasses is a great source of iron.

With negative Temperatures this week, I need a taste of warmer weather. Lemons and Blueberries are a great combination for a light breakfast or dessert.

Italian Style Cabbage Rolls with Ground Venison.
No surprise I love baking and cooking for my family. This Maple Baked N’Oatmeal is the current family favorite. I make a batch and Super Hubby takes it to work for breakfast every day with fresh fruit. This morning we woke up to snow ice and negative temperatures- my summer loving heart needed a cozy family breakfast before we started our day of house projects. Fresh squeezed OJ and fresh fruit from the year round farm Market Willey Farms , a perfect match for this Maple Baked N’Oatmeal.
My husband, and now I’ve learned my son too, love to eat fish. I struggle getting my fish intake because it is not my favorite protein. I enjoy seafood when someone else cooks it. I used to avoid all things fish but after cooking it, per my husbands request, I’ve gotten better. Since we have moved to Delaware, I shared this struggle with my brother in law. My sister loves fish too but my brother in law is more like me. In order to help our weekly fish intake, we decided to do Thursday Fish night. It has helped a lot and I have gotten more confident cooking meals that I know we will all enjoy. New problem: my one year old ate most of my fish- guess I will now have to buy 3 pieces to feed my little family. Check out the 7 Life- enhancing benefits of eating Fish.

Dark Chocolate Coconut Clusters
Always looking for quick on the go recipes for breakfast. With one kid and another on the way, and a husband who leaves early for work, I like to have food on stock for the busy weeks. These are Apple Muffins I created when we first went Paleo. I have made a few changes and recreated them to be healthier and taste even better. They take about 5 minutes to make and 25 minutes to cook. So easy and simple and they store and freeze well.
Apple Breakfast Muffins
These are a simple Fruit tartlet that you could create for a brunch or a light dessert. I’ve been on a fruit kick lately, clearly missing Summer on these cold winter days.
The tartlets pictured are with a Gluten Free Pie Crust but I love making these with Elana’s Pantry Pie Crust better.
- Take the Crust and roll it thin. (If using Elana’s Crust- Use two pieces of Parchment paper, spray with coconut oil and roll this with a rolling pin.)
- Cut the crust with a 2 1/2″ round cookie cutter
- Place the pie crust in a well greased mini- muffin pan
- Set aside while making Fruit filling
Berry Filling Ingredients: (will make 8 tartlets)
- 1/2 Cup Strawberries, diced
- 1/2 cup Raspberries, halved
- 1 TBSP. Honey
- 1/2 tsp. Tapioca Flour
- dash of Nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp. Cinnamon
- dash of fresh lemon juice
