Cauliflower Power Smoothie on lexeats.com_4

Cauliflower Power Smoothie

Yup, I said cauliflower + smoothie. You may have noticed this recent health craze. Everyone has been on the green smoothie train for years now, but even though you’re getting nutrients from the spinach and fruit, if you load your smoothies with fruit, you end up eating a lot of […]

Taco Bites

I promised y’all a tailgate recipe, did I not? If you’re not a sports person, no worries, these are just as tasty eaten on the couch during a serious Netflix binge 😉 This recipe is inspired by an appetizer I had at a wedding this summer that I knew I […]

Watermelon & Feta Bites

Happy Thursday! I’m sharing an easy recipe that makes a great summer appetizer. I made these watermelon and feta bites for a brunch this past weekend. They are crazy simple to put together, but look impressive! And a great way to highlight summer produce with juicy watermelon and fresh basil. […]

Creamiest Guacamole on lexeats.com

The Creamiest Guacamole Ever

So this isn’t a ground-breaking kind of recipe. I realize guacamole is pretty popular and one recipe doesn’t vary too much from the other. That being said, I’m pretty proud of my guacamole recipe. I’ve perfected it over the years and through a happy accident, found the trick to making […]

Caprese Bruschetta on lexeats.com

Caprese Crostini

It’s finally starting to feel like summer and I am not mad about it! One of my favorite things about summer is tomatoes, which means caprese salad! The combination of fresh, juicy tomatoes (bonus points if they’re heirloom), creamy mozzarella cheese, rich olive oil, tangy balsamic and basil is probably […]

Kentucky Beer Cheese

If y’all know anything about me, you know I love cheese. All kinds of cheese. Did you know there is such a thing as beer cheese? I grew up eating this delicious dip pretty much every day as an after school snack. It wasn’t until I went to college in […]

Whole 30 Icecream Bites on lexeats.com

Whole 30 “Ice Cream” Bites

So I made it about 20 days on Whole 30 back in January, and while it was miserably hard, I did feel so much better following it. My stomach really is so much happier when I eat dairy and gluten-free, but it’s so hard! I really love carbs. And cheese. […]

Girl Scout Cookie Cereal Bars

Y’all. There are Girl Scout Cookie cereals. There, I said it. I went to two different grocery stores to find them.. #dedication. They come in Thin Mint and Caramel Delight flavors, which just happen to be my two favorite kinds of Girl Scout cookies. I wanted to come up with […]

Avocado Feta Dip

Who’s pumped for Super Sunday? I love me some football, but TBH the NFL doesn’t do anything for me. I’m a college football fan all the way (and roll damn tide.) You know I’ll get behind any reason to eat though. I love Super Bowl snacking because it means lots […]

National Popcorn Day

Y’all. I’m doing whole 30 and it is ROUGH. I’m craving everything – cheese, chocolate, french fries… It’s the pits. I’m currently salivating just thinking about popcorn. January 19 was national popcorn day and I teamed up with Hartley Social again to bring you some recipes. We made two versions […]
