Honey Cranberry Sauce

We are a mere three days away from arguably food’s biggest holiday, and I’m day dreaming about my turkey swimming in gravy, and don’t forget the sweet and tart cranberry sauce that compliments it so well! To be honest, I used to not really be a fan of cranberry sauce, but in recent years discovered how delicious it can be! I guess I tend to enjoy my berries fresh and not gelatinous. *shoulder shrug*

This year, I won’t be cooking for Thanksgiving (big benefit of living near your family), but in years past have cooked Thanksgiving meals for hungry marines, and have always served fresh cranberry sauce! It really cuts through the saltiness of your turkey, the fattiness of the skin/juices, and adds a tart, refreshing compliment to the meat. It’s also great on leftover turkey sandwiches! The best part is, it’s so easy to make that it barely constitutes a recipe!

No matter how small your Thanksgiving celebration may be this year (year of the dumpster fire 2020), some Honey Cranberry Sauce will be a welcome addition at the table.

Honey Cranberry Sauce

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces (1 bag) of fresh cranberries
  • 3-4 tsp of raw honey
  • Squeeze of fresh orange juice (about 2 tbsp)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 cups of water

Directions

  1. Bring water to a boil in a medium pot
  2. Add cranberries
  3. Boil until soft and skins are bursting
  4. Strain out water and return to pot
  5. Add honey, orange juice, and salt and pepper
  6. Stir to combine while slightly mashing the cranberries
  7. Serve warm, room temperature, or cold – it’s good all ways!
  8. Store leftovers covered in the fridge. Spread leftover sauce on toast and top with leftover turkey for a delicious leftover sandwich.

And that’s all, folks! It really is that easy, and in my opinion, better than the canned stuff. If you are having a smaller feast this year, try my Roasted Chicken with Carrots. That is what I used to test out this cranberry sauce with and it was fantastic! For a bigger feast, check out my Ghee, Garlic, and Herb Turkey with Gravy for a traditional turkey with a buttery, citrus-y twist.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Whatever you are doing during this strange holiday season, be safe, be kind, love on your people – even from afar if you must…and enjoy your Pinch of Crazy!

Green Pancakes

It was Halloween morning and my second attempt at my Green Pancakes. The first attempt did not go well, but I thought I would try again (with a touch more almond flour) because green goblin pancakes sure would be fun for Halloween breakfast! As if the excitement of dressing up like a unicorn (cute Halloween pics below) and wearing sparkly makeup wasn’t enough to send shrieks through the house, let’s add some syrup!

In my recently posted waffle recipe, I admitted to my morning hanger problem… oops. So like those waffles, this batter is made in a blender just to simplify everything and get some food in my, uh… I mean my kids… belly faster.

Speaking of kids, these pancakes are perfect for all the kiddos in your family, even your baby! These are perfect if you are doing baby led feeding. My seven-month-old absolutely loved them, and because breastfed babies iron stores are depleted around six months, I was glad to give her something so high in iron. Thanks, spinach!

Now I know you might be thinking ‘spinach pancakes sound like my kid’s personal torture’, but don’t worry: they won’t even be able to tell there is spinach in them. Now, I don’t recommend lying to your kids by trying to hide the fact that there is spinach, but this is just spinach dressed up, so to speak. The spinach has such a mild flavor, gives the pancakes their fun green color, but they taste just like a bananas!

So what do we do for toppings? Arguably the most important part of a pancake breakfast, don’t skimp on the toppings. Because these taste so strongly of banana, peanut butter and/or chocolate chips are delicious options, chopped walnuts would be great, and you can’t go wrong with a hefty glug of maple syrup.

Whether you really deck these out with toppings, keep it classic, serve them up for a holiday breakfast (perfect for Christmas, St Patrick’s Day, or Halloween) or just a fun Saturday morning surprise, these Green Pancakes are sure to please!

Green Pancakes

  • Servings: 16-20 mini pancakes
  • Print

Ingredients

  • 4 small, ripe bananas – the more freckled, the better
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups of almond flour
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 cup of loosely packed spinach
  • 1/2 tsp of cinnamon (I used coconut)
  • Desired oil for coating skillet

Directions

  1. Heat large pan (I used my cast iron) over medium-low heat and coat generously with oil
  2. Blend all ingredients in blender or food processor until smooth
  3. Pour small rounds on pre-heated skillet
  4. Once bubbles around the edges have formed and popped, flip pancakes over (these are quite delicate so be gentle)
  5. After about two minutes on the other side, take off pan
  6. Serve pancakes warm with desired toppings

Chocolate Nut Clusters

Hello! It’s Molly; it’s been a while, but I’m still here! I’m currently sitting here looking at pumpkin decor, smelling fall-scented candles, and really wishing I had a warm slice of pumpkin bread. It’s starting to *kind of* cool down, fall decorations are coming out, and the holiday season is in sight. All of this can only mean one thing: aside from eating all the goodies, of course, it’s time to bake the goodies! However, if you’re like me, you still get a little sweaty turning the oven on; I’m also still slightly sleep deprived from having my second baby only five months ago, so any extra energy I have is usually devoted to tidying up. I would love to be able to bake more, but right now most dessert recipes are a little too time intensive for me. So what’s a sweaty, tired mama to do when Fall comes a-knocking asking for goodies? Make this recipe! It is super simple, delicious, sweet, crunchy, and salty; these two ingredient Chocolate Nut Clusters satisfied my third trimester cravings, and are the perfect go-to in this busy season if you’re craving a treat but short on time. Hope you enjoy!

Chocolate Nut Clusters

Ingredients

  • 6 ounces of dark chocolate, chopped
  • 1/3 cup of nuts of your choice, chopped (I used pecans and almonds)
  • Flaky sea salt (optional)

Directions

  1. Toast nuts for about 2 minutes on a dry skillet on medium heat, just until aromatic. Set aside
  2. Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl, stirring well after 30 second increments.
  3. Stir nuts into melted chocolate
  4. Drop spoonfuls of chocolate covered nuts on a parchment lined (or my favorite silicone mats)
  5. Sprinkle with sea salt, if desired
  6. Refrigerate until firm
  7. Store covered in the fridge for a week, but they’ll be gone long before that hehe

I hope everyone has been healthy and well during this post-apocalyptic movie of a year we’ve had. You will find plenty of comfort food on this site, and feel free to reach out to chat if needed. Stay healthy, hug your family, eat fall goodies…and enjoy your Pinch of Crazy!

Hash Brown Cups

Wow I can’t believe it is 2020! I haven’t written in so long because Zemirah and I had the flu over the holidays, and I am just now feeling better after a month of the yuckies. Technical term. Anyways, I certainly hope everyone’s new year is off to a great start! Now that I’m finally feeling better, I am turning my attention to the baby’s room because she will be here in about 2.5 months! *insert shocked face* I hope to give you all a few more new recipes before I take an extended break, but as always, follow along on social media (clickable links on the sidebar or at the bottom of this page) to keep up with the fun/craziness!

Okay, so back to the new year. More often than not, the new year comes with resolutions to declutter, eat healthier, get into the gym more, and all that good stuff. (My resolution/word for this year is to “release” AKA stop being a control freak. Oops.)  I want to help people with their eating habits because I truly believe what we put in our bodies is the most important thing for our physical, mental, and emotional health. Breakfast is “the most important meal of the day” yet so often rushed and overlooked. These Hash Brown Cups are the perfect breakfast recipe to make ahead of time, pack up to take to work, or even eat on the road, and you can top them with avocados or veggies for extra nutrients. I think these little breakfast cups (and, of course, coffee!) will get your mornings off to a happy, healthy start!

Hash Brown Cups


Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb of frozen, shredded hash browns
  • 3 tbsp of your favorite cooking oil (such as avocado oil)
  • Desired seasonings (I used salt, pepper, and spicy garlic salt)
  • 10 eggs
  • Desired toppings (greens, avocado slices, tomato slices, cheese, etc.)

Directions

  1. Line or grease 10 muffin tins.
  2. Pre-heat oven to 350 F
  3. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Cook hash browns until brown and slightly crispy.
  5. Season as desired.
  6. Press the hash browns down into muffin tins.
  7. Crack eggs on top of the hash browns and season as desired.
  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes until whites are set, and the yolk is the way you like it.
  9. Once cooled, store covered in the fridge, top with desired toppings, and heat to enjoy for an easy, filling breakfast!

For more breakfast recipes you can prep ahead of time, check out my Peanut Butter and Chocolate Overnight OatsBreakfast Bites, Chocolate Covered Strawberry Chia Pudding, and Fruit and Nut Granola. Let me know what your goals are for 2020 (and if it’s just to make it or stop being a control freak like me, that is a-okay!), and what kinds of foods you want to eat more of this year! Soak up this fresh start, set realistic goals, eat your breakfast…and enjoy your pinch of crazy!

Marbled Peppermint Bark

I have your new Christmas time addiction: peppermint bark. It’s dangerously simple, nothing is more Christmasy than cool peppermint, and nothing is more luxurious than dark chocolate and white chocolate swirled together in melty, delicious harmony. Now, these are not my usual refined sugar free treats because white chocolate has a lot of sugar, but making a few batches this holiday season won’t hurt! Eating “cheat” foods you enjoy without guilt, to me, makes living a healthy lifestyle honestly enjoyable! I love healthy food, and I love how I feel when I eat intuitively, and sometimes my intuition (especially when pregnant during the holidays) says to eat peppermint bark. No need to feel deprived this holiday season – enjoy your sugary treats if it feels good for your body! I hope this quick and delicious “recipe” (can’t even really call it that) hits the spot and brings holiday cheer!

Marbled Peppermint Bark


Ingredients

  • 8 oz of dark baking chocolate
  • 8 oz of white baking chocolate
  • 6-8 drops of peppermint essential oil
  • 4 candy canes, crushed or roughly chopped

Directions

  1. Melt dark chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl; heating for 30 seconds and stirring after each interval.
  2. Once melted, add peppermint oil and stir to combine.
  3. Spread dark chocolate thinly on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
  4. Melt white chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl, stirring after each 30 second interval of heating.
  5. Spoon globs (technical term) of white chocolate on top of dark chocolate, then create the “marbling” by running your spoon vertically then horizontally through both layers.
  6. Top the bark with crushed candy canes.
  7. Chill until solid (5ish hours in the fridge and 2ish hours in the freezer), then break into pieces using a knife. Enjoy the scraps before sharing with your kids 😉
  8. Store in the refrigerator.

 

This Marbled Peppermint Bark, along with my Molasses Cookies, have been made every Christmas since my husband and I were married; it’s a sweet (literally and emotionally) holiday tradition. If you are looking for refined sugar free Christmas desserts, please try the cookies linked above, as well as Two Layer Paleo Fudge, and for Christmas sweet drinks, look no further than my Death by Hot ChocolateSlow Cooker Apple Cider, and Dairy Free Eggnog. Whatever you end up making, I hope it brings some holiday cheer to you and yours! Spend time with your loved ones, indulge this holiday season…and enjoy your Pinch of Crazy!

Maple Dijon Roasted Carrots

How is it already mid-November?! I’m pretty sure it was just New Year’s Day 2019 and now the year is almost over…not to mention, the holidays are right around the corner. The countdown to Thanksgiving 2019 is on, and I have to tell you, as a pregnant woman in my second trimester, I’m pretty  extremely excited! The pregnant appetite is real these days so I’m speculating I’ll down a second plate plus a dessert plate at least. Anyway, you’re not here for my Thanksgiving day dreams, you’re here for the carrots.

These are special enough for a Thanksgiving side, yet simple enough for a weeknight dinner. Roasting the carrots brings out their natural sweetness, which is only enhanced by maple syrup, counteracted by the tartness of Dijon mustard, and a touch of rosemary adds brightness. I struggle to get Zemirah to eat carrots, but she wouldn’t stop taking these right from the bowl while I was photographing them! I certainly hope your family will like these as much as mine did!

Maple Dijon Roasted Carrots


Ingredients

  • 2 lbs of baby carrots, halved lengthwise (large carrots would work, too, but would need to be sliced into quarters)
  • 1/2 cup of pure maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp of butter (my favorite brand of grass fed butter) or ghee, melted (or substitute with your favorite cooking oil such as coconut or avocado)
  • 1 tbsp of Dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp of dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp of kosher salt

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 F
  2. Lay carrots flat on a parchment or silicone mat lined baking sheet
  3. In a microwave safe bowl, melt your butter or ghee (if using a liquid at room temp oil, ignore this step)
  4. Combine butter, syrup, mustard, rosemary, and salt
  5. Pour mixture over carrots and stir to ensure all carrots are covered
  6. Roast for 50-60 minutes, stirring halfway through, until fork tender
  7. Store leftovers covered in fridge for a week to 10 days

 

Easy peasy and delicious! The carrots in my Roasted Chicken with Carrots are also amazing, and for more vegetable side dishes check out my Crispy Brussels SproutsSweet and Sour BroccoliABC Brussels Sprouts, plus plenty of potato recipes. I hope this simple recipe inspires you for your Thanksgiving sides, or even as a way to make a weeknight dinner a little fancier – and it never hurts to cover your kids’ vegetables in syrup and butter 😛 Eat your vegetables, like them, too…and enjoy your pinch of crazy!

Pumpkin Pecan Muffins

How does time keep escaping me? I blinked and October is almost over! Halloween is a mere 9 days away, and I still haven’t hemmed Zemirah’s Elsa costume, nor have I blogged in over two weeks. Two weeks with no new recipes is officially my longest, albeit accidental, break from my blog. In case you missed it on my social media (click the links at the bottom of this post to follow me on Instagram, Pinterest, and Facebook), we are expecting Baby Mills #2 in April! I’m currently four months along, Baby is the size of a large avocado, and giving me sweet little jabs every now and then. After our miscarriage in July, we’ve been concerned with Baby’s health, but so far everything is looking perfect!

babybump.jpg
Little baby bump when I was 12 weeks along.

Obviously pregnancy along with being the mom of a rambunctious toddler has kept me occupied, in a true Pinch of Crazy way. *insert crazy heart eyes here* Bear with me over these next months; I promise I’ll blog whenever I get the chance! For now, continue relishing your crisply cool fall days while enjoying these delicious, not-too-sweet, healthy Pumpkin Pecan Muffins. Nothing like a homemade pumpkin treat to welcome fall in!

Pumpkin Pecan Muffins

  • 1/3 cup of coconut oil, melted (here is my favorite brand)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup of pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup of roughly chopped pecans (or buy pecan pieces)

Apple Pie Parfaits

It is officially fall! The first day of fall was four days ago and the high today is…95. So while it may not quite feel like fall, we can still celebrate by busting out the decorations and using all the warm, spiced flavors! These Apple Pie Parfaits are full of all the fall flavors: cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and coziness. 🙂 Warm, spiced apples are “cozy” between layers of dairy free whipped cream and nutty, crunchy granola crumble. Delicious! I knew this recipe was a keeper when my picky nephew kept asking for more. *praise hands* I hope you and your family enjoy this vegan, refined sugar free fall treat as much as mine did!

appleparfait

Apple Pie Parfaits


Ingredients

    For the apple filling:
  • 4 medium sized apples, thinly sliced (I used two Gala and two Granny Smith. I also left the skin on for looks + extra fiber, but you can peel them if desired.)
  • 1 tbsp of coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tbsp of pure maple syrup
  • 2 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp of ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • For the granola crumble:
  • 1/2 cup of old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup of slivered almonds
  • 1 tbsp of whole flax seeds
  • 1/2 tbsp of coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • For the whipped cream layer:
  • Generous spoonfuls of dairy free whipped cream (there is also a coconut cream whipped cream made by Reddi Whip)

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  2. Drop apple slices in the boiling water and boil for about 5-7 minutes, until tender crisp.
  3. While the apples are boiling, make your granola crumble by combining all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Pulse until combined, but with texture – you don’t want granola dust!
  4. Once apples are cooked, drain and return to pot. Stir in remaining apple filling ingredients until all slices are coated in “coziness” 😉
  5. In a glass of your choice, layer whipped cream, granola crumble, and apple slices. Repeat layers until you reach the top, ending with whipped cream!
  6. Serve warm.
  7. Keep leftovers separate – apples in the fridge and crumble at room temperature. Simply reheat the apples when you want more and layer away!

And to make your home smell like a fall-themed bakery, use my “recipe” for Apple Cinnamon Stovetop Scent! I certainly wish it were cooler, but it’s my favorite season, so I will still celebrate! Enjoy this marginally cooler weather, celebrate anyway…and enjoy your pinch of crazy!

Spaghetti Bake with Balsamic Glaze

Spaghetti is the ultimate easy dinner; delicious, loved by all, and you can easily sneak in some extra vegetables for the littles.

I made this recipe by default (as per usual), but it was so delicious I decided to document. I’m telling you, it is like the Italian comfort food love child of spaghetti and lasagna: cheesy, saucy, delicious! I hope you give it a try – I’m willing to bet it will be a family favorite!

Berry Watermelon Jigglers

Okay so I admit, I don’t know if “jigglers” is a word, but that’s what my mom always called the Jell-o squares she made us, and it’s just fun to say! We are still hanging out in the triple digits here in Texas, and I basically wish I could live in the refrigerator next to these refreshingly cool jigglers. These tasty little gelatin squares are made from fresh fruit, water, honey, and unflavored gelatin. That’s it! They are cool, fresh, and healthy! You get plenty of hydration from the fruit juice, antioxidants from the berries, and collagen from the gelatin. Not to mention, your kids will love them, and you can offer dessert without dripping sweat into a bowl of brownie batter. I hope these yummy fruit treats hit the spot for your family and keep you nice and cool!
