Hi Mamas, hi Friends! This strange time in the world has given me pause to reflect on what is really important to me and the Mama Jess brand. It’s HEALTH. It’s about making sure the world is eating healthier, making sure we’re feeding ourselves and our families healthier. The most valuable thing we have is our good health. So with that said, I hope you can join me in our journey back to what matters most. We are pledging to show you more recipes that are reflective of our brand. Forgive us for going down that cheesy, casserole laden food porn route in the past. It’s a food bloggers trap to make it look drool-worthy! Let’s get back to how we are meant to eat...

Mama Jess’ Guide to Grilled Pizza

Posted by on Jul 2, 2020 in blog, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Mama Jess’ Guide to Grilled Pizza

The Grill Master is back! I have been loving learning a new cooking technique this summer so I have been experimenting with everything I can. This week I decided to dive into grilled pizzas, with Mama Jess sauce of course! This is a fun dinner to get your family involved with, the kids will love rolling out the pizza dough and choosing their toppings. Grilling pizzas are a great alternative to the usual pizzas in the oven. Not only are they ready faster, but they have a really delicious smokey flavor to them. Not to mention, the crust crisps up on the outside and stays soft and fluffy on the inside. Plus, your kitchen doesn’t heat up from the oven being on, so...

Roasted Veggie Winter Salad

Posted by on Jan 9, 2020 in blog, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Roasted Veggie Winter Salad

In the spirit of continuing to succeed at our New Year’s Resolutions, I’ve “developed” a winter salad recipe for you! When I say “develope” I mean “I put together two healthy things that I loved and added a dressing on top, making it completely irresistible” so I decided to share it with you all. I hope you are prepared for this to become your go-to obsession for the next week. What I love about this recipe: it is simple to make (just roast and go), packed with veggies (literally the recipe calls for salt, olive oil, veggies, cheese (optional) and an oily/herby dressing on top. That’s it.), plus it is a great thing...

Crockpot Sweet Potato Chili

Posted by on Dec 12, 2019 in blog, Uncategorized | Comments Off on Crockpot Sweet Potato Chili

Winter is coming…and we are prepared! The goal: to bring you an easy crockpot recipe to keep you warm during these cold, cold evenings. This recipe is straight from Courtney at @ALifeFromScratch (follow her on Instagram for more amazing recipes!) and it is our new favorite way to enjoy healthy, comfort food at the dinner table. We love this recipe because, while it is vegetarian, it doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on the traditional flavor and heartiness of chili. If you’re looking to add a bit more protein, I recommend browning some ground beef and adding it to the crockpot. We will definitely be enjoying this one again!  Xoxo, Claire and...
