Jesse made them for the first time last week and they are a winner recipe. I know we’ll be making them over and over again. Best of all, these are gluten-free and Trim-Healthy-Mama friendly!

You could leave out the chicken or bacon to cut down the recipe costs by quite a bit. You could also add other veggies — like spinach or broccoli. These would also be yummy with some shredded cheese mixed in or sprinkled on top.

Breyers Apple Pie A La Mode Recipe

15379082474_1b870981e3_k

This Apple Pie recipe has been one of our family favorites for years. And it’s usually always part of our holiday celebrations. In fact, Thanksgiving or Christmas just wouldn’t seem right without this recipe!

It’s not too hard to make and it always gets rave reviews. If you want to dress it up even more, add a scoop of ice cream (we love Breyers) plus some caramel sauce. It’s ooey-gooey, the perfect combination of sweet and crunchy, and oh-so-delicious!

We’d never tried the Breyers caramel sauce before, so when they asked me if I’d be interested in making an apple pie and they’d send us a gift card to buy the ingredients plus some Breyers ice cream and caramel sauce to top it with, my family happily signed up for that taste test opportunity. :)

We thought it was delicious… really sweet, but really good.

Healthy Blueberry Crisp Recipe

Healthy Blueberry Crisp

I “Trim Healthy Mama-fied” the Blueberry Crisp recipe from Bread & Wine a few weeks ago. Since then, I’ve made it a few more times to tweak it and get it just right.

Many of you asked me for this recipe, so I’m happy to share it. Please note that if you’re not familiar with the Trim Healthy Mama way of eating, this recipe might just look really weird to you… and it might even have a few ingredients you’ve never heard of before.

I get that, because I was pretty cynical of the whole THM way of eating for a number of months. But now that I experimented with it, I’ve fallen in love with it. And seeing as it’s been going on five months of eating this way, I think it just might be a new lifestyle. :)

Please note: This has a higher fat content than a typical THM E meal. You can either eat just a small amount for a meal, eat it as part of a Crossover meal or snack, or use twice as much fruit to the crumb topping ratio.

How I Saved Today: Baking homemade cookies!

Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies

How did YOU save today?

I saved by making homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies for my family. They love home-baked treats and they are less expensive (and usually better for you!) than buying store bought.

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

I used our family’s favorite Freezer-Friendly Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookie recipe. These are packed with fairly wholesome ingredients and so delicious.

Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies

I especially love that they can be made ahead of time and frozen. You can either freeze the unbaked cookie dough or bake the cookies and then freeze them. Or, just eat them fresh from the oven! :)

Your turn: Tell us what you did to save today in the comments!
