Apple Cider Roasted Sweet Potato Recipe

I love sweet potatoes but have had a hard time getting my family to eat them until I created this Apple Cider Roasted Sweet Potato Recipe.  They think it’s like getting dessert for dinner.  What they don’t realize is that this recipe is really pretty healthy.  They are easy to make and a great side dish for any fall meal.

Apple Cider Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Apple Cider Roasted Sweet Potato Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 large sweet potatoes
  • cinnamon
  • nutmeg
  • 12 – 15 oz apple cider
  • 1 tbsp butter

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Wash the sweet potatoes well.  The skin will be left on but not eaten.

Slice the potatoes into medallions approximately 1/2″ thick.  If they are too thick, they will take a very long time to cook.

Lay the sweet potato slices in a single layer on a non stick baking sheet.

Pour the apple cider over the potatoes.  They should be 3/4 covered with cider.

Add a dab of butter to the top of each potato.

Sprinkle the potatoes with cinnamon and nutmeg to taste.

Bake potatoes for an additional 20 minutes or until they are soft.

Serve the roasted sweet potatoes with the skin on.  The skin will easily peel away with a fork.

Orange Screamsicle Fudge

My kids are obsessed with Trumoo Chocolate milk so it stays on my shopping list pretty much every time.  When we saw the new Limited Edition TruMoo Orange Scream flavor of course we had to bring it home to try it!   It is definitely a seasonal favorite in my house, it reminds you of creamy orange popsicles from your childhood.  The best part about TruMoo is that I feel good about letting my kids have it for a treat since it contains no high fructose corn syrup and no artificial growth hormones.

Since we are big fans of the orange flavor I wanted to try it out in a Halloween recipe- fudge is one of my favorite simple sweets to make. This recipe was fun to put together, easy to make, and  definitely feeds your sweet tooth.  Set out some of this orange creamsicle fudge on a platter  at your Halloween party, or wrap them up individually to pass out to family, friends, neighbors, and don’t forget a class treat for school! This is a sponsored post, opinions are my own.

Olaf Cheese Ball

You just can’t help but love him, can you? Even after you have seen the movie a thousand times and you have the soundtrack running on repeat through your head- Olaf is just adorable!  I came up with a sweet cheese ball recipe in his likeness for  those of you who really can’t get enough. Because when someone says ‘Do you wanna build a snowman” to you, you do it.

When mixture has firmed, roll into snow ball shapes- 2 smaller for feet, a large base, smaller torso, and larger head- shape it a bit so it resembles Olaf. I looked at a picture of him for inspiration while I worked. Roll in powdered sugar to coat and to make it resemble snow.

Add carrots, candy eyes, and other additional pieces to decorate your Olaf. For his hair I melted a few teaspoons of chocolate chips in the microwave, scooped it into the corner of a sandwich bag, snipped off the corner and “drew” his hair shape onto waxed paper, let harden in the refrigerator and press gently into the top.

Energy Bites Recipe

Quaker has asked me to talk to you about their For the Love of Play campaign, in partnership with the NFL and Fuel Up to Play 60, designed to help fuel healthy families so they an get out and be active for 60 minutes of play a day. 
Physical activity, in combination with good nutrition, is essential to a healthy lifestyle. This isn’t rocket science.  We’ve most of us heard and seen this for years. It’s not even a suggestion.  Our bodies need fuel and they need to move. Today I’m sharing some of the ways WE play in our family- and also a quick and easy family favorite Energy Bites recipe so we have the fuel we need to play for 60 minutes each day.

For the Love of Play wants to inspire us- all of us- families and communities- to get up and get active – at school, at home and everywhere in between.
Play is fun and easy! Whether its flag football with friends, active brain breaks at school, a game of tag in the backyard with your family or organized sports – the ways to play are endless.Playing outside has seemingly endless options to stay active. There are probably 100 different games of “tag” alone.

Getting up and getting active isn’t always super simple when you are indoors. It’s easy- too easy- to get into that comfort zone of sitting on the couch/chair and vegging out, especially in colder months or in less than ideal weather. We try to still be active and keep moving in our house- and one way we do that is with the kids’ toys.  Our house is set up so that the downstairs is a circle. At least, for kids running around, it’s a circle. The floor needs to be refinished anyway, but the ‘turns’ in the doorways?  The finish was worn far before any of the rest of the floors.  Our kids have run laps on that floor since they could move their little bodies independently. We’ve played thousands of hours of chase with them.

captain-america-dad

Now, they are bigger. So we have different ways of play.  My son got a Captain America shield that shoots little foam discs… all of us, including my extended family, have taken turns for the past few years to don the mask and strap on the shield to hunt stinky feet.

captain-america-mom

 

Playing together doesn’t have to be planned. Or serious. We tend to have the most fun playing silly, made up games in our house.  We’ve spent hours playing chase with Beanie Boos and other stuffed animals. It’s about moving and being active.

Outside? Soccer. Taking walks. Bike rides.  Chase. Tag. The kids do cartwheels and somersaults all over the place. Basketball games, hopscotch. Baseball.  There are endless ways to get moving outdoors. The point of the whole For the Love of Play campaign is to encourage us- ALL of us- to geet out there are DO things. Or get in there and DO things. Move. Wiggle. Jump. Shake. Put on the kids’ dress up clothes and pretend right along with them. You might be surprised at how much fun you’ll have!

Ravioli with Creamy Herb Sauce

I had more inspiration after I left the Hood Meal Makeover Event last week.  Actually, I’ve since had yet another inspirational thought, but that recipe will come later this fall, I think.  I was actually trying to figure out a meatless meal for my oldest, who’s meat-free, but also have something we would all enjoy, and I happened upon a case of fresh ravioli at the grocery store.  I happened to find some Pesto Ravioli, but we often get a Pumpkin Ravioli from the fresh pasta case, especially in fall.  The kids will eat it and it’s just a nice change of pace from our normal dinner routines. I grabbed the Pesto Ravioli and thought that I could figure something out to make it more meal and less side for my oldest, and off I went.

I don’t know about your family, but mine like sauce. Or dip. Or both.  I decided I was feeling the creamy love and thought I’d try a creamy herb sauce.  I knew I’d be using sour cream- which can also act as a thickener for sauces, like a roux, so I  already knew I’d have a sauce that could stand alone. The bonus of this meal?  Add a nice big garden salad or some fresh broccoli and your dinner is on the table in like 20 minutes!

Creamy Herb Sauce

ravioli-creamy-herb-sauce-recipe

Ingredients:

1 package ravioli (we opted for a Pesto Ravioli)

4TBSP Unsalted Butter

4-6 oz Hood Sour Cream (if you want lighter, grab a lighter container of the sour cream)

3 TBSP Parmesan Cheese

Herbs to taste (Fresh is always best, but in a pinch? Dried works just fine!) — I used Parsley, Basil and Oregano in my sauce.

Garlic, crushed

Salt & Pepper to taste (I actually only used pepper, no salt- didn’t feel we needed it with the cheese)

 

**This doesn’t make a ton of sauce, but you don’t need a lot of sauce. It’s a heavier sauce and quite rich, so less is more.

Chocolate Pancakes with Apples

Brett and I have  recently had the opportunity of touring some really amazing American historical sites with American Heritage Chocolate including Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello, George Washington’s Mount Vernon, and most recently Old Salem Gardens and Museum.  These were amazing trips and left me inspired to create some new recipes at home using American Heritage Chocolate like these Chocolate Apple Pancakes.

American Heritage Chocolate Apple Pancakes

American Heritage Chocolate Pancakes with Apples

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup American Heritage Chocolate (drink mix or grated chocolate)
  • 1 cup finely chopped apples
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 3 tbsp melted butter

American Heritage Chocolate Apple Pancakes RecipeInstructions:

Preheat a skillet or griddle to 350 degrees.

In a medium bowl, combine the flour with the baking powder, salt, sugar, and chocolate.

Whisk the egg and milk together and stir into the dry ingredients.

Once all other ingredients are well combined, add the melted butter and stir well.  The mixture will remain somewhat lumpy and this is normal.

Stir in the diced apples.

Pour batter onto griddle and cook until tops begin to bubble.

Flip the pancakes and continue cooking until they are done through.

Remove the pancakes from the griddle.  Top with butter, diced apples, and real maple syrup.  I also grated a little bit of American Heritage Chocolate on top of the stack of pancakes!
