Quinoa Muffins – great snack and lunch! with Mama Jess Garden Good Pasta Sauce

Posted by on Apr 19, 2017 in blog, blogs, recipes | Comments Off on Quinoa Muffins – great snack and lunch! with Mama Jess Garden Good Pasta Sauce

Quinoa is a fabulous grain. It’s certainly Mr. Popular right now – we will expand on it in later posts, but for now we think you should try this delicious grain & recipe. Real quick – why we LOVE quinoa: It contains all 9 essential amino acids (building blocks of protein)  and it has two times the fiber of most grains. That is great news for those of us that are vegans & vegetarians. We can get plenty of the desired protein from grains & veggies – thank you Mother Nature! quinoa mini muffins 2014-07-02 18:22:32 Serves 6 Write a review Save Recipe Print Total Time 40 min...

mama jess back to school tips: batch cooking and healthy muffin recipe for school lunches

Posted by on Aug 17, 2015 in blog, recipes | Comments Off on mama jess back to school tips: batch cooking and healthy muffin recipe for school lunches

mama jess is preaching about batch cooking again…   Hello friends – Our Back to School Tip today is BATCH COOKING. I cannot say enough about batch cooking and how easy it can be and incredibly helpful it truly is to a busy families schedule. Batch cooking is simply taking a recipe (I prefer recipes that can be frozen) and scaling it up by doubling it or tripling it. For my growing boys, I always batch cook at least 40 meatballs a month! It’s a time saver and I hate the kitchen mess, so this way it’s messy once for multiple meals! This also works fabulous for items like: Soups Muffins Cupcakes Pancakes Waffles Cookies Quinoa...

Zucchini Lasagna with Mama Jess Bean Good Ah, zucchini lasagna. It is delicious and you feel great after eating it compared to the food coma regular lasagna gives you…BUT…it takes a bit of time. I’d put it on my Slow Food Sunday menu. Our Mama Jess Bean Good Pasta Sauce is PERFECT for all lasagnas because it’s a thick & cream sauce. Bean Good is never watery and that’s exactly the secret to zucchini lasagna….remove excess water! We found a fabulous recipe on-line at SkinnyTaste.com  for Zucchini Lasagna and decided not to duplicate efforts! Click here for Gina’s recipe. We made some substitutions listed below to...
