6 Tips for Hosting a Brunch Party

6 Tips for Hosting a Brunch Party

I think that brunch is the new dinner. At least for people with kids. Anyone else notice that? The dinner invites have stopped and we do a lot of morning gatherings with friends. But I’m not sad about it. After all, brunch is more casual (read: kid-friendly, no paying for a baby-sitter, and I can stay awake the whole time) and who doesn’t love breakfast food all day every day?!

But brunch can also be tricky because of the timing of the different dishes, and you have to plan ahead a little more (because no one is getting up at 5am to cook for friends).

To help keep brunch fun, casual and 100% delicious, here are some great tips, brought to you by Simple Mills.

Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal

Carrot Cake Baked Oatmeal

I love this version of carrot cake baked oatmeal. It is packed with nutrition from whole grain oats, plus fruits and veggies. It’s a little more work than a simple bowl of oatmeal, but it is 100% worth it. Great for a brunch or heated up throughout the week.

Everyday Cranberry-Apple Crisp

Everyday Cranberry-Apple Crisp

I’ve always been partial to apple crisp… Since I can’t get enough of these flavors, I prefer to make myself an “everyday” version of desserts. Meaning, it wouldn’t be the end of the world if I had it every day. Or, it’s not indulgent enough to be a “once-a-year” treat. Save those versions for holidays and birthdays, in my opinion.

Why Your Slow Cooker Just Might Be Your Best Friend

Why Your Slow Cooker Just Might Be Your Best Friend

I was sitting with a client recently who wants to reduce the amount of meals that she either eats out or relies on convenience items. Her barriers are that doesn’t have kitchen skills, and is super busy. She doesn’t want to waste her time, money, or food on a recipe that might not turn out well. She feels stuck. But then, a glimmer of hope: she just purchased a slow cooker. This, my friends, is the answer to her problems.

Lotsa Veggies Sloppy Joes

Lotsa Veggies Sloppy Joes

When you think of sloppy joes, you might think of something akin to canned chili. And if you do, I’m sorry, because that’s not what I’m talking about. I’m talking about a tangy, slightly sweet and smokey, thick and hearty tomato-based creation that slowly stews on your stovetop for hours. It’s the look and smell of homemade deliciousness.

3 Ways with Cabbage

3 Ways with Cabbage

We got some cabbage in our last box from Door to Door Organics and then got asked to bring a side dish to our friend’s house for dinner. Now is about the time you might be considering never inviting me to dinner – you’re bringing cabbage?! But, my friends, it was a hit.

6 Reasons to Love Cauliflower {Guest Post}

6 Reasons to Love Cauliflower {Guest Post}

Once overshadowed by broccoli, cauliflower is now trending the foodie world – some even call it the new kale. A common belief is that darker green or darker pigmented produce contain more nutrients, but white veggies are rich in a different set of phytochemicals that are just as beneficial to your health.
