Beyond the Detox… and Apple Mango Spinach Smoothies

2014-03-26_SpinachAppleMangoSmoothie-600px

Last week, I shared a little bit about my “detox” diet experience a few weeks ago. I went 10 days without any gluten, dairy, sugar, or caffeine. And, I even lived to tell about it! Sure, I joke about how tough it was, and I had my days, but it really wasn’t all that bad….

Blueberry Apple Crumble (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free)

If you follow me on Instagram, or if we’re friends on Facebook, you’ve probably noticed something different about me.  I’ve gone gluten-free, dairy-free, and sugar-free! It’s (probably) not a permanent change, but I do plan to permanently change the way I eat. It’s kind of a long story, but stick with me on this one……

Cranberry Salsa

I’m not going to be making Thanksgiving dinner this year. I thought about attempting it, but my mother offered to cook and I decided to take her up on it. I’m not so sure that everything would have gotten done in between snuggle time with the baby.  She likes to snuggle.  She also likes to scream…

Amaretto Apple Preserves

I’ve been up to my ears in apples this fall. We signed up for a new fruit CSA this year in addition to our usual apple CSA.  When I signed up, I was thinking of all of the berries and peaches that we’d enjoy over the summer.  I didn’t give much thought to the fact…

Apple Crumble Pie

Fall is officially here! I hope you are as excited as I am about that. But, even if you aren’t, I think this apple crumble pie will help to get you in the mood. Lately I can’t get enough pie… I’m not talking about just eating pie (though, I have enjoyed a slice or two). …

Friday Favorites – Surprise Baby Shower

I’ve been taking a bit of a break from my Friday Favorites lately… My regular Friday Favorites will return later this fall (post-baby!). But, lately I just haven’t had the time and energy to get through my RSS reader each week. I suppose being close to 9 months pregnant is a good excuse, but I…

Caramel Apple Coffee Cake

I think pumpkin is one of the first flavors that comes to mind when I think of fall… Apples are a close second, especially when they are paired with spices like cinnamon and cardamom.  Add caramel into the mix, and I am a very happy girl.  So, naturally, I had to put my spiced caramel…

Kitchen Bootcamp Roundup – Eggs and Breakfast

This month’s Kitchen Bootcamp challenge focused on eggs and other popular breakfast foods! I admit that it was a selfish pick on my part because I wanted a challenge that I could handle without too much stress and effort.  I really enjoyed seeing what everyone else made, though… Breakfast has been one of my favorite…

Apple, Zucchini, and Cheddar Frittata

I have to admit that my definition of challenging myself in the kitchen has changed a bit lately. I’m doing my best to keep everything up and running here at My Kitchen Addiction, but if I’m truly honest with myself, I don’t quite have the same energy for whipping up new recipes in my kitchen…

Friday Favorites – Episode 141

I have fall on the brain this week… I think that may have clouded my view as I was reading blog posts this week and choosing my Friday Favorites. The baby arriving in early October is certainly part of the reason that I’m already thinking about fall… But, there are other reasons, too. I love…
