Light and Creamy White Chicken Chili (Stove-top or Instant Pot)

heartysmarty

This delicious white chicken chili is a great soup to come home to on a cold day. It pleases all the palates at our family dinner table--except my non-bean eater...but I bet she will get over that food aversion in the next couple years. The milk and sour cream balance out the fire from the green chilis, so it isn't too hot for the littles. I love this dish because it is so quick and easy to make and it feeds a lot of people. Serve this with my Gluten-free corn bread or my Hearty Corn Bread to make a

Hearty Green Bean Casserole

What is Thanksgiving dinner without Green Bean Casserole? I use frozen green beans instead of canned and my homemade cream of chicken soup recipe for the sauce.

Mom-Life Hack #1: Showering with a toddler in tow

Raspberry Peach and Banana Smoothie

heartysmarty

Remember all those raspberries we picked in Wyoming this summer? My parents froze them and sent us home with a cooler full of them! I have three peach trees in my yard whose harvest is also in my freezer. These two fruits are making THE BEST smoothies for us this Fall. Combined with a banana for added sweetness, spinach for a punch of flavorless foliage (and Folate, vitamins K, and A among others), and unsweetened vanilla almond milk to make it smooth, and this smoothie has been crowned as my kids' current favorite. Enjoy! Raspberry, Peach and Banana Smoothie kid-approved

Easy Honey Whole Wheat Bread (for the Bosch)

heartysmarty

Fresh-baked homemade bread envelops all the comfort and warmth of home. Once I got myself a Bosch mixer (aff. link) this comfort food was featured more regularly at our dinner table, and our whole family is so glad! My favorite Fall and Winter meal is a bowl of hot soup with this bread-- fresh out of the oven. YUM!!! This recipe is simple and fail-proof. Not only does it taste delicious, but it is 100% whole wheat, and made with all whole ingredients. I hope you and your dinner guest love this as much as the Andersen family does. Enjoy!
