One Skillet Spinach and Artichoke Salmon

Posted by on Feb 27, 2020 in blog | Comments Off on One Skillet Spinach and Artichoke Salmon

Spring may be a few weeks away…but we have yet to see much proof of that. In the meantime, I am continuing to find hearty, healthy, and simply delicious winter recipes that not only fill our bellies but also our home with the most amazing aromas. This One Skillet Spinach and Artichoke Salmon is the perfect example of all of the above. Plus you guys have been loving our one skillet recipes like this one and this one so we thought we could continue the trend! What I love about this recipe: It is sort of like eating spinach artichoke dip for dinner, but substituting the heavy cream with coconut milk subtracts the guilt but leaves the rich creaminess! Simply simmer...

Posted by on Feb 20, 2020 in blog | Comments Off on Vegetarian Roasted Veggie “Meatballs”

Looking for a vegetarian meatball alternative? Well, look no further! These roasted veggie meatballs are so decadent, you will prefer these over the traditional ones! Instead of ground meat, these are composed of roasted veggies, tender farro, breadcrumbs, and Parmesan cheese (an A+ combo, let me tell you). The beauty of these “meatballs” is how simple they are to make and how they fit perfectly into so many dishes! Make them ahead of time to really be prepared for the week, and top them with Mama Jess Sauce over a dish of zoodles and you have a wholesome, delicious meal! This recipe is originally from Goop, but we made it our own by topping it...

Happy (almost) Valentine’s Day, Mamas! We are definitely feeling the love for this delicious fruit dip that we made this week to celebrate! If you are looking for an indulgent breakfast or after school snack sans-sugar. The secret of this dip is in the creamy avocado. When you blend it up, I promise you won’t taste avocado, but it does wonders for the ultra-creamy texture. Since this dip isn’t necessarily as sweet as “normal” chocolate, I recommend dipping all sorts of naturally sweet fruits in it. Strawberries, raspberries, and bananas were on my platter along with some pretzels! Find the recipe below, and enjoy some vegan, paleo,...

Sweet Potato Chicken Nuggets

Posted by on Feb 6, 2020 in blog | Comments Off on Sweet Potato Chicken Nuggets

Happy February, Mamas! Today we whipped up a more wholesome version of a family favorite: Sweet Potato Chicken Nuggets. This is a great way to add a veggie into an after school snack and these bites are Whole30 and Paleo approved!  And because dry chicken nuggets are boring…dip them into our Mama Jess Organic Ketchup which, you guessed it, is also Whole30 and Paleo certified!  While this recipe is quick and easy, the only thing that requires a bit of elbow grease is shredding the sweet potato. This can qualify as an arm workout if you’re trying to hit the gym today…but I promise it’s worth it! I only needed one large sweet potato...
