Carrot Pineapple Smoothie

I have to be honest.  Most of the smoothies happening in my kitchen over the past few years are all green.  (Or if berries are involved, a not-so-appetizing color of brown.)  I’ve just gotten in the habit of blending up whatever fresh ingredients are on hand and then tossing...

Chocolate Chia Smoothie

I’m not quite sure how it happened.  But somewhere along the lines of the last 2 years of self-employment, after years of a late-to-bed-late-to-rise musician schedule, I have now officially become a morning show person. Still working on the morning person thing.  My body seems bent on the whole...

(Skinny!) Oatmeal Cookie Smoothie

Oh man, I am way late to the adding-oatmeal-to-your-smoothies party. (Seriously, how did I miss this?!) But whatever, better late than never because I’ve got an oatmeal smoothie recipe to share with you today that literally tastes just like an oatmeal cookie.  But this one is minus the guilt because it’s...

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

So, pretty sure I saw a massive bag of over-ripe bananas on sale at the store last week for $0.88 and bought… …TWO bags. Oh yes.  I’ve been going a bit “bananas” this week trying to work them into all sorts of recipes.  So keep your eyes “peeled” for...

Hot Chocolate

Call me crazy, but yesterday as a blizzard was rolling into Kansas City, I decided to get out of the house. I know.  I’m usually the girl who happily cozies up inside when the weather outside gets frightful.  But when all of my neighbors decided to bundle up and...

Blueberry Avocado Smoothie 1

Brain Power Smoothie (Blueberry Avocado Smoothie)

Healthy eating month continues on Gimme Some Oven today with a smoothie I’ve been hooked on lately.  It’s basically a blueberry avocado smoothie recipe, but I like to call it my brain power smoothie because it’s chocked full of tasty ingredients that are good for brain health. And let’s be...

Eggnog French Toast

Did you know that you can drink your eggnog — and eat it too? That’s right!  ‘Tis the season for rounds of cream (and sometimes boozy) eggnog galore.  But for those of you who find yourself with a few leftover mugs of eggnog this year, do not fear!  There...

Homemade Chai Tea (Hot, Iced, and Concentrate)

As you are reading this post today, I am happy to be snuggled up with a warm blanket at a blogging retreat in Park City, Utah.  There is snow falling outside our door, good blogging friends are near, and I am happy to be nestling in for some much...

Skinny Caramel Frappe

This post is sponsored by International Delight. Do you remember the first time you set foot in a Starbucks? I do! Believe it or not, the infamous coffee chain didn’t come to Kansas until I was a freshman in college.  But when the first tiny coffee shop arrived in...

Sparkling Ginger Mint Juleps

Sparkling Ginger Mint Juleps

This has been the week of Gatsby! Last Saturday, my delightful book club spent an entire evening talking all things Gatsby and Fitzgerald (which led to a 90’s hits dance party…of course).  Then on Monday night, three of us Gimme Some writers had the chance to attend an early...

Any of you who follow along on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram will know that last week I went on a 3-Day Suja Juice Cleanse! Yep.  For 3 days, I gave up normal food and drinks (no caffeine or alcohol), and instead drank 6 delicious and huge bottles of Suja juices...
