This Strawberry-Citrus Flax Smoothie is a healthy, refreshing way to start your day, and it also makes a healthy snack—blend one up whenever you’re craving something cool and creamy (like ice cream or a shake), but would prefer to have something healthy.

Mango Parfaits

Have you made any desserts in a jar? I’ve seen some great ideas on Pinterest and in several magazines, and also had reviewed 150 Best Desserts in a Jar a few years back—that’s where I discovered this recipe for Mango Parfaits. You can serve these cool, creamy, and fruity parfaits in small canning jars or any uniquely-shaped jars you may have…I’m always saving jars from jams, relishes, and other items because they’re just too pretty not to use!

Banana-Oat Smoothie

Smoothies are great on hot summer days and they make an easy, quick breakfast.

Crustless Broccoli Quiche

When I make quiche, it’s usually on the weekends, because I don’t have time to make it for breakfast during the week. I suppose I could make quiche for dinner every now and then, which isn’t a bad idea! This quiche would be great for dinner because it has lots of broccoli and Swiss cheese in it, so you get your veggies and your protein. If you’re not that crazy about Swiss cheese, you could use Cheddar cheese instead. There are also mushrooms and onions in this quiche, which make it a wonderful cheesy blend of veggies! 🙂

Spinach-Mushroom Quiche

I am a big fan of quiche, and it’s been awhile since I made one, so it was definitely time to bake one up! And the nice thing about this recipe is that it makes TWO quiche, so you can serve one right away and save one in the freezer for later! This is a veggie quiche, with spinach, mushrooms, and some chopped onion, along with eggs, Swiss cheese, sour cream, and Half & Half to give it a wonderful taste and texture. This is also made with deep dish frozen pie crust shells, which makes it a little easier and quicker to put together!
