Peaches and Mango Breakfast Bars

Breakfast Bars that are packed with nutrition and good-for-you ingredients. Plus, they taste amazing and are super family-friendly.

Peaches and Mango Breakfast Bars

You know you’ve had a good week when two posts in a row involve a lovely glaze. A simple sweet glaze is the best way to finish off a rather indulgent dessert (see Wednesday’s post) or to dress up a healthy breakfast bar. Not that you absolutely need to add the glaze… unless you’re anything like me, in which case a glaze becomes a necessity. Sugar is life.

Speaking of which. In today’s recipe you’ll find only natural sugars (minus the glaze), but you would never know hadn’t I told you. If these bars aren’t prove that healthy food is utterly delicious and just as satisfying as other alternatives, then I don’t know what is.

Gone are the days of a bowl of cereal or peanut butter toast for breakfast. Once you enjoy a Peaches and Mango Breakfast Bar it will be hard to go back to your old staples. The feeling of having dessert for breakfast is an absolute thrill. It sets me up for a fabulous start to my day every time.

Let’s make breakfast the best meal of your day too. [Read more…]

Lightened Up Fettuccine Alfredo

Healthy, dairy-free and absolutely life changing. The secret to lighter Fettuccine Alfredo is all in a one-of-a-kind sauce. I can’t stop making it!

Lightened Up Fettuccine Alfredo

Happy Monday morning, everyone! If I don’t jump right in, I might just explode. Because I’ve been dreaming of and cooking up a storm like it’s my job. Well, it sort of is. The weird thing is that I’ve been making the same thing over and over again. It’s so unlike me to stick with the same recipe and see how many different ways I can incorporate it into our lives.

There are just a few dishes that I tend to make on the regular, but most of what I prepare for dinner involves new recipes and serving up whatever my fellow food bloggers are sharing. I love change and am always trying out something new. At least when it comes to food.

But THIS SAUCE. I can’t seem to get over it.

Lightened Up Fettuccine Alfredo

There have been several attempts at recreating some of my husband’s favorite dishes ever since finding out that lactose just isn’t his best friend. Luckily, there are many substitutions that work extremely well when it comes to emulating butter, yogurt and cheese. Or so we keep telling ourselves, ha. Yes, most of the time (with exceptions to baking and chocolate) I stand in solidarity with Adam and consume far less dairy than I used to. Which means my non-lactose game has to be on point or I couldn’t do it.

But I thought I’d challenge myself and try to come up with a creamy dish that not only wins in the non-dairy department, but also brings true nutritional value and health benefits to the table.

The clear winner is in the sauce. [Read more…]

Homemade Mac & Cheese that will leave you feeling oh so good. Both because it tastes absolutely amazing, but also because it has a healthy twist that no one would ever suspect!

Whoa! Yes, we’re doing it. One of my goals for 2015 was to share more savory recipes with you. Don’t ya worry, Deliciously Yum will continue to mainly revolve around all things sweet, but occasionally I will start to share some of our favorite main meals, side dishes and appetizers with you as well. Hope that’s alright with you :).

Because things like today’s Mac & Cheese version NEED to be shared with all of you. My conscience can’t continue to keep these things from you…

feel-good-mac-and-cheese

We take our Mac & Cheese very seriously. I usually don’t like for anyone to mess with my bowl of cheesy goodness. No fancy ingredients, swaps or substitutions necessary. Thank you very much. Or so I thought.

The Mac & Cheese you see here has one very special ingredient and a few healthier substitutions. Yeah, I was suspicious too. But you know me by now. I wouldn’t share anything I don’t absolutely love.

So let me tell you about this Feel Good Mac & Cheese. [Read more…]

 Happy New Year, Everyone! I hope every single one of you had a wonderful holiday season and made it safely into 2015. With the beginning of a new year come all sorts of new goals and resolutions. To be quite honest, I didn’t make a single resolution this year. I am always thinking about how to move forward and things I hope to accomplish in the future. That being said, it’s been a couple of months since I started planning some new and exciting things for Deliciously Yum and I can’t wait to see how all of them unfold. So stay tuned.

This is my first actual fall post now that autumn has officially arrived and things are definitely beginning to look like it. The leaves are changing color and I cannot wait to see fall in all its bounty. Though this season tends to be rather short in MN, it sure makes up for it in radiance and breathtaking beauty. Definitely one of the reasons why living here is so worth it.

Also, I feel much more comfortable talking and thinking about all things cozy and warm when we’re in the season. It just feels right.

And so do these muffins. Sharing a muffin recipe was a must for me this season. I knew I wanted to add some of my favorite fall flavors and these muffins are it, you guys.

They’re healthified, extremely scrumptious & satisfying and an absolute must-make. [Read more…]
