Raspberry Oatmeal Scones

Posted by on May 9, 2019 in blog | Comments Off on Raspberry Oatmeal Scones

I can’t lie, I have a bit of a sweet tooth. Okay…a lot of a sweet tooth…and especially in the morning. Pancakes, croissants, muffins, crepes…I love anything sweet for breakfast. But, not everyone in my family does. So these scones were a happy medium due to the fact that they are so subtly sweet! Plus the oatmeal makes it just feel a bit more healthy… These scones are perfect for Mother’s Day brunch, breakfast in bed (psst: pass this recipe along to your kids and husbands!), or even to box up and give to Mom. We will warn you though: it’s hard to just eat one! Something I will note though: you probably notice that my scones are quite pink. I used...

Burnt Veggie Chips and Being Bold

Posted by on May 2, 2019 in blog | Comments Off on Burnt Veggie Chips and Being Bold

Today…I have a confession to make. I had these big plans to create a delicious, healthy, crunchy snack to share it with all of you, but something happened that has never happened before… I burned it. All of it. And what’s worse? I don’t have any time this week to try it out again! So instead, I am taking a bit of time in my week that I do have to write a quick note on here to tell you all (and myself) that it’s okay! In the days of Instagram likes and influencers, it’s easy to get lost in feeling like everything has to look perfect and put together – be it our photos, our families, or just our lives in general. But between...

Three Cheese Baked Ziti

Posted by on Apr 25, 2019 in blog, blogs | Comments Off on Three Cheese Baked Ziti

When it comes to classic pasta dishes, baked ziti is up there right next to spaghetti and meatballs in my opinion. Now the jury is out on if this is a “classic” Italian recipes or not, but no matter what, it is delicious. The best part about this particular recipe is, other than being doused in Mama Jess sauce, it is a one skillet recipe, which makes clean up a breeze. If you haven’t figured out, I’m a big fan of making recipes easy. You may recognize this “one pot pasta” technique from our Shrimp Diavolo recipe, it makes cooking and cleanup so much more simple. The other great part? This is a PERFECT meal prep recipe! Honestly,...

Well it is a Good Friday indeed because today we have for you a healthy, sweet, and yummy treat just in time for Easter! This is a fun one to get hands on with your kids between kneading the dough and decorating the “Easter eggs”! The other great thing: it’s low hassle and quick to bake! Here’s how: For those of you who have dabbled in shortbread cookies, like I have, you know they can get a bit finicky. You have to find that perfect sweet spot in baking time for them to be just set without being too hard or soft. Today, I think I managed it (check the recipe card below for the instructions!). As for the dough, make sure you work with cold butter, cut into...

Pizza Pinwheels

Posted by on Apr 10, 2019 in blog, recipes, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Pizza Pinwheels

I love making creative snacks for my family. The look on their faces  when I whip up some of our recipes like the loaded zucchini skins or our popcorn chicken nuggets is priceless! Today I incorporated our sauce into pizza pinwheels…and this recipe quickly turned into one of the most delicious ways to make pizza that I have ever had! I love how quick these are to make, so you can have them hot when the kids get off the bus. The first thing you want to do is roll out the thawed puff pastry sheet so there are no creases. From there, spoon Mama Jess Organic Garden Pasta Sauce on the pastry, creating an even layer. Then…sprinkle your toppings! I...

One Pan Sausage and Roasted Veggies

Posted by on Apr 4, 2019 in blog, blogs, Uncategorized | Comments Off on One Pan Sausage and Roasted Veggies

If you haven’t been able to tell, I have recently been really into one pan dinners. Why? Because all I have to do is chop and bake. So today, I am sharing my new favorite “Oh S*** I Need to Make Dinner” recipe: One Pan Sausage and Roasted Veggies. It’s quick to whip up, extremely easy to clean up, and so dang delicious. Something else I love about this recipe is how creative you can be with it. I love smoked polish sausage, but if you are looking for something leaner, turkey or chicken sausage will do the trick! Or something spicy: how about Italian sausage? The other great thing: make it with any in-season veggies! I can’t wait to do...
