Chocolate Pudding Pie_7 on Whisk Together

Chocolate Pudding Pie

For years our family served Chocolate Pudding Pie at Christmas.  It was really quite delicious and simple – a couple packages of Jello chocolate pudding thrown into a baked pie crust.  Here I made something *almost* as simple and JUST as delicious.  The only difference is that I frozen the pie.  Why?  One, I could […]

The Secret Ingredient Missing

We are still in peak holiday season, but that doesn’t mean we still can’t prep for the rest of the day’s nutrition before the cookies and candy come.  This week – in addition to a Minecraft birthday party celebration (a future blog post)- I have been researching smoothies and how to get maximum nutrition into […]

Harvest Pumpkin Soup_4 on Whisk Together

Harvest Pumpkin Soup

This could be considered the “low carb” version of the classic hot dog.  My daughter wanted her hot dog wrapped in a piece of bologna.  Gag me!  But she ate every last bit of it.  I was afraid no one would believe me and took a photo.  You know… for when she gets married and […]
