First, I tried the homemade taco seasoning. I went ahead and made enough for several meals because I was sure it would be great. I really liked the seasoning, but my husband felt that it was missing something. I told him that it was the MSG and other additives that he was missing. I didn't miss those things one bit! He agreed that it is just a different flavor and he wants to keep using it because it is a healthier, natural option.
My apologies for the super weird picture. Those beauties are yummy energy bites; the recipe can be found at Smashed Peas and Carrots. I didn't use coconut in my recipe because I didn't have any at home. I have made these bites several times and LOVE them!
This Southwest Chicken Flat Pie was delicious! The recipe can be found at Lauren's Latest. I have tried a few of her recipes and was happy with each. I suggest stopping by her site; she has an impressive recipe index. I have made this three times now; it is so easy to make and my husband and I both love it. I left out the onions and added frozen corn.
That my friends is a warm, creamy cup of home made chai. I have had a love affair with Starbucks Chai Latte for some time now, but this mix may be enough to tempt my loyalties. The original recipe for vanilla chai can be found at Mom Advice. I didn't want to vanilla flavor so I left out the vanilla creamer and doubled the original creamer. Delicious!
The fifth recipe I tried was the green monster smoothie from Iowa Girl Eats. I didn't remember to take a picture of this one, but it was bright green and blended nice and smooth. I am terrible at eating salads at home. I buy the veggies and have all the best intentions, but I never want to make/eat salad. This smoothie is the perfect way for me to get the benefits of spinach without having to eat a salad! I was surprised that I only tasted the peanut butter and bananas.
