Cherry Strawberry Ice Pops

It has been so hot this week in NYC. Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining. I will take this heat over the winter we had any day. However, I hate that when I take Emmi out of her stroller, her hair is matted to her head and she is soaked with sweat. So, … Continue reading

Chocolate Mousse Pudding

I don’t know about you, but I usually crave something sweet after a meal. Sometimes I can ignore those cravings while other times, I insist on ordering dessert while we are out or I have a couple of pieces of dark chocolate after dinner at home.

All Natural…Kefir Fruit Smoothie!

This smoothie recipe is one of my favorites because not only is it super simple, but it is very good for you. The only ingredients are plain Kefir and fresh or frozen fruit.

A Healthier & BETTER Version… Carrot Cake!

I am always impressed with great bakers. I consider myself to be a good cook but baking has always been more difficult for me. However,  I am trying to bake more often, especially since I started the blog and because I love baked goods. One of our good friends from Lubbock, Hila, is a fabulous … Continue reading
