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

Freezer Pesto Sauce

heartysmarty

One of the best things about my summer garden is fresh basil for sauces and other dishes. Buying fresh basil from the store is never the same--it's wilted, spotted and expensive. If you have ever grown basil, you understand how HUGE the plants can get. There's no way one family can use so many basil leaves before the plant goes to seed or the growing season ends. Because I can't stand to see my beloved basil go to waste, I make it into pesto and freeze it to use all winter long. I make Pesto Chicken Pizza with it or

Simple Cold-Pack Method for Canning Peaches

heartysmarty

For years I told myself that canning peaches was too hard and added too much sugar to an already sweet fruit, so I never tried to do it. Well, I swallowed my pride and gave it another whirl this Fall, and I am so glad. I (of course) found a way to use even less sugar than the lightest version of syrup called for in my "Ball" Canning book, and the peaches have so much more flavor than the ones I froze. Now that I have these pretty jars of peaches carefully stacked on my storage shelves, no one is

Garlic and Butter Green Beans

heartysmarty

There's nothing wrong with boiling fresh or frozen green beans until they are soft, draining the water and seasoning them with butter and salt and pepper. However... cooking them in a covered skillet or wok with a dab of butter and garlic makes this simple side dish a show-stopper at the dinner table. They are perfectly crisp-tender and have a punch of flavor which will complement any main dish you are serving for dinner. Enjoy!

Cucumber and Tomato Ranch Salad

heartysmarty

I planted wayyyyy too many cucumbers this year and I am having to get creative with how I serve them to my family during this harvest season. My kids have finally put their foot down and declared that they don't love the balsamic dressing I use in my Cucumber Caprese Salad. So, this new way of serving cucumbers and tomatoes is super simple and not that impressive, but my kids love it so much I had to share. Here goes: Cucumber Tomato Ranch Salad Kid friendly salad to eat up late summer vegetables 4 small cucumbers (3 Cups chopped)4 large
