Chewy No-Bake Granola Bars

Guest post from Brigette Shevy These are a perfect lunchbox treat! They are so fast and simple to whip up, and they freeze perfectly. That’s assuming, of course, that they actually last long enough to make it to your freezer. Our family of five can go through an entire pan of these in… um, such a short amount of time that I’m not quite ready to admit it in public. When I do manage to save a few of these away for my husband’s lunches, I cut them into bars and wrap them individually. I store them in a ziploc bag in the freezer, and pop them in lunches straight from the freezer (they thaw quickly).

Blueberry Ginger Smoothie Recipe

When I first saw this recipe in the May/June 2011 issue of the Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade magazine, I thought it sounded like a very strange combination. But the more I thought about it, the more the idea grew on me. So I tried it this week — and thought it was really quite good. The ginger added a fun zing and a refreshing twist. If you try this, I’d love to hear what you think about it!

Pick-Me-Up Smoothie Recipe

A friend of mine told me last year that she loved frozen grapes in smoothies. Frozen grapes in smoothies? That just seemed weird to me. But I tucked that piece of information in the back of my brain and pulled it back out again recently when I bought two bags of grapes marked down to $0.99 at the health food store. The result? This delicious Pick-Me-Up Smoothie recipe.
