An easy, healthy, delicious dinner that’s done in under 30 minutes!  Made with chicken, beans and peppers along with fresh lime juice and cilantro, this chili is fabulous!

An easy, healthy, delicious dinner that's ready in under 30 minutes!  Made with chicken, beans and peppers along with fresh lime juice and cilantro, this chili is fabulous!

Today, my son Harrison scored his very first touchdown in a flag football game!  He normally plays center, and snapping the football seems to be what he’s good at.  However, today our fantastic coach decided that it was Harrison’s turn to get into the end-zone.  As he got the hand-off, he dodged the defensive players and  ran it in for a touchdown.  He was so excited!  Lots of cheers, high fives, and fist-bumps – and that was just by the parents!  The boys were thrilled to win their football game, and it turned into a game that we will remember for many years to come.  Man, its days like today that I just love being a mom to that sweet kid of mine!!

The game weather was cold and windy, and by the time we got home we were all chilled to the bone.  Once the celebrations subsided I knew it was the perfect day for soup.  Sunday always seems to be a great day for chili.  It just feels like chili and football belong together!  I had all the ingredients in the fridge to make Lime Chicken Chili.

This delicious soup comes together in no time at all.  Its perfect for a weeknight dinner, and utlizes simple ingredients that you may already have in your fridge and pantry.  This soup ended up being the perfect lunch to feed my cold, hungry crew after a morning of football.

Topped with fresh cilantro, sour cream and a wedge of lime, this soup has a great fresh flavor.  You could also add avocado, mex-blend cheese, tortilla chips, jalapenos or any other favorite chili toppings.  This soup is also a nice, healthy dinner option, as it includes protein and fiber packed chicken, beans and peppers.

This delicious Raspberry Almond Chia Smoothie is not only pretty, but it’s really good for you too!  Loaded with protein, calcium, and packed with flavor this smoothie is the perfect way to start your day.  It’s also a great way to celebrate Cooking for a Cure and Breast Cancer Awareness.

This smoothie is not only pretty, its loaded with protein and calcium and packed with flavor.  The perfect breakfast to start your day!

Today I’m sharing a delicious pink smoothie that celebrates Cooking for a Cure, and Breast Cancer Awareness.  With October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, me and several other bloggers are joining together to create some amazing pink foods.

icm_fullxfull.47397836_8fv7t6a0c04k8g4o40g8

My Raspberry Almond Chia Smoothie is the perfect way to start your day.  Its easy to make, totally delicious, and is loaded with protein and calcium.  I make this smoothie with plain Greek yogurt, almond milk, and almonds which gives it nearly 10 grams of protein.  I also added  some chia seeds, which are an amazing super-food.  They’re loaded with lots of great nutrients including fiber, protein and the good-for-you Omega-3’s.

This smoothie is not only pretty, its loaded with protein and calcium and packed with flavor.  The perfect breakfast to start your day!

The raspberries in this smoothie are fantastic!  I was able to score some fresh raspberries at the grocery store, but using frozen is just as good.  Frozen raspberries are available year-round in the frozen food section, and a bit more economical as well.  They also add that gorgeous pink color to the smoothie.

This smoothie is not only pretty, its loaded with protein and calcium and packed with flavor.  The perfect breakfast to start your day!

I top off the smoothie with some additional chopped almonds, which along with the chia seeds, gives the smoothie a nice crunch.  The texture is fantastic, and you could easily eat this smoothie with a spoon.  It’s thick, creamy and completely delicious!

This smoothie is not only pretty, its loaded with protein and calcium and packed with flavor.  The perfect breakfast to start your day!

This smoothie is the perfect go-to breakfast when you’re mornings are rushed and you need to get out the door.  It takes just a couple minutes to throw together in the blender.  Pour it into a to-go-cup, add a straw, and your on your way.  I don’t particularly like to eat in my car, but when I have to, this smoothie is a great way to go.

As you can see, this is really easy to make.  This would be a fun smoothie to make with your kids as an after-school snack, or enjoy as a post-workout drink to refuel.

This October lets remember those mothers, grandmothers, daughters, sisters, aunts and friends who are struggling with a diagnosis of Breast Cancer.  Lets bring awareness to the disease, along with the awareness of mammograms and self-exams.  Working together, a cure can be attained within our lifetime.

If you love to munch on candy corn or if you enjoy the classic rice krispie treat, you’ll love this Candy Corn Krispie Cake.  Its layered to look like candy corn and drizzled with candy melts, its the perfect fall treat!

If you like candy corn and rice krispie treats, you'll love this!! Layered to look like candy corn, and drizzled with candy melts, its the perfect fall treat!

Do you love candy corn?  Candy corn is one of my son’s favorite candies, so since we had a few days off school, I wanted to surprise him with this fun Candy Corn Krispie Cake.  I created this fun, easy-to-make treat by simply adapting the standard rice krispie treat recipe that comes on the side of the cereal box.  If you enjoy the classic rice krispie treats, you’ll love this!!

If you like candy corn and rice krispie treats, you'll love this!!  Layered to look like candy corn, and drizzled with candy melts, its the perfect fall treat!

Making this fun treat takes just a few simple steps, and simple ingredients that you’ll have in your pantry.  You will utilize a bundt pan and layer the rice krispie treat recipe into thirds.  To make the top portion white, I simply added marshmallow fluff to the rice krispie treat recipe, and topped with candy corn.  The second layer is the standard rice krispie treat recipe, colored with orange food coloring in the melted marshmallow, and also topped with candy corn.  The third and final layer is the rice krispie treat with yellow food coloring added to the melted marshmallow.  The end result, is a pretty layered rice krispie treat with candy corn nestled into the middle layers!

If you like candy corn and rice krispie treats, you'll love this!! Layered to look like candy corn, and drizzled with candy melts, its the perfect fall treat!

Once the layers are complete, you’ll simply invert the bundt pan onto a plate, and your rice krispie cake will come out beautifully.  I enjoyed making this treat even prettier by drizzling white, yellow and orange candy melts on the top of the cake.  (You can purchase just about any color of candy melt you can think of at any Michaels craft store, or online.)  Not only do the candy melts look amazing on top of the cake, they taste pretty fantastic, too!

If you like candy corn and rice krispie treats, you'll love this!! Layered to look like candy corn, and drizzled with candy melts, its the perfect fall treat!

Don’t those layers look pretty?  I was really happy with how it turned out, and was Harrison and the rest of our neighborhood friends that we shared it with.  As soon as I brought the cake outside to share with our friends, both kids and grown-ups couldn’t take their eyes (or their fingers) off the cake.  Needless to say, it was a huge hit, and gone in a matter of moments!

If you like candy corn and rice krispie treats, you'll love this!! Layered to look like candy corn, and drizzled with candy melts, its the perfect fall treat!
Ingredients
  • 6 c. Krispie Rice cereal
  • 5 c. mini marshmallows
  • 2 large spoonfuls (about ½ c.) marshmallow fluff
  • 3 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 c. candy corn candies
  • yellow and orange food coloring
  • ½ c. each, white, orange and yellow candy melts
Instructions
  1. With non-stick cooking spray, spray the inside of a bundt or tube pan. Set aside.
  2. In a medium microwave safe bowl, melt one Tbsp. butter, add 1c. marshmallows to the melted butter, and stir. Melt the marshmallows for about 30 seconds on medium heat. Add 2 c. cereal to the melted marshmallows and stir well. Add the 2 large spoonfuls of the marshmallow fluff, and stir thoroughly. Lightly spray your hands with non-stick spray. Using your hands, firmly press the white cereal mixture into the bottom of the bundt pan. Add ½ cup of the candy corn to the top of the white cereal mixture.
  3. For the second layer, melt another tablespoon of butter in a microwave safe bowl. Add two cups of marshmallows, and stir. Melt on medium power for 30-45 seconds. Stir the melted marshmallows, and add several drops of the orange food coloring. Add 2 cups of cereal and stir thoroughly. Spray hands and firmly press the orange mixture onto the top of the white mixture. Add the remaining ½ cup of candy corn to the top of the orange layer.
  4. For the third layer, melt the last tablespoon of butter in a microwave safe bowl. Add two cups of marshmallows, and stir. Melt on medium power for 30-45 seconds. Stir the melted marshmallows, and add several drops of the yellow food coloring. Add 2 cups of cereal and stir thoroughly. Spray hands and firmly press the yellow mixture onto the top of the orange mixture. Let the pan set for a few minutes to cool. Invert the pan onto a plate, and the cake will come right out.
  5. Melt each of the three candy melt colors in their own bowls. (Follow the label on the candy melts for proper melting directions.) Drizzle the cake with each of the candy melts, and let set before serving.

I hope you get to enjoy this krispie cake as much as we have.  It makes such a fantastic party food, a fun bake sale treat or just something tasty to surprise your family with.  My son Harrison was certainly surprised with this fun cake. Not only did it bring Harrison joy, but our friends and neighbors got to enjoy it as well.

Enjoy!

Shrimp and his best friend bacon team up together in this amazing soup!  Loaded with flavor, this soup is a must-have on a cold fall or winter night.  Its the ultimate comfort food!

Chunky and creamy this amazingly delicious soup is packed with flavor!  The ultimate comfort food!

I know I’ve said it before, but its worth noting again; I’m pretty much always looking for and trying new dinner recipes.  They need to be easy to make, quick to prepare, include simple ingredients and on the healthier side for my family.  Can you relate? Once I come across something that’s easy for me to prepare and my family enjoys it, I consider it a dinner victory!  This Shrimp Bacon & Corn Chowder is my latest dinner victory!

Chunky and creamy this amazingly delicious soup is packed with flavor!  The ultimate comfort food!

This soup is fabulous in so many ways!  The ingredients are simple, and items that I usually have on hand in my pantry and fridge.  The celery, onion and garlic along with the sweet corn provide a fantastic base for this soup.  These veggies add some nice texture and flavor as well.  As for the shrimp and bacon – I’ll just say that they belong together!  They are absolutely fantastic in this soup and provide just the right amount of smokey, savory goodness.

Chunky and creamy this amazingly delicious soup is packed with flavor!  The ultimate comfort food!

One of the last steps in this easy soup recipe is something that provides great creaminess.  I put about half of the cooked soup into the blender, puree and then add the puree back to the rest of the soup.  This ensures there is still some nice chunky pieces left in the soup, but also a nice smooth texture – perfect for dunking a crusty piece of french bread.

Chunky and creamy this amazingly delicious soup is packed with flavor! The ultimate comfort food!
Ingredients
  • 1 (12 oz. pkg) frozen shrimp (uncooked, peeled, deveined), thawed
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 2 ribs of celery, chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 (16 oz.) bag, frozen sweet corn, thawed

  • 1 c. half & half
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. onion powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • Chopped parsley (optional as garnish)
Instructions
  1. In a medium stock pot or dutch oven, heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil on medium high heat. Thoroughly rinse the thawed shrimp, and add to the pot. Saute the shrimp for 1-2 minutes, removing from heat as soon as the shrimp begins to turn light pink. Set cooked shrimp aside.
  2. Add the additional Tbsp of oil to the hot pot, keeping the heat at medium high. Add the chopped celery, onion and garlic. Saute for 8-10 minutes or until the onions begin to turn translucent. Add the thawed corn and saute for 3 more minutes. Add the chicken broth, half and half, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Add the bacon, reserving a couple slices for topping the soup. Bring to a simmer.
  3. In a blender, add about half of the soup mixture and puree to a creamy consistency. Add the puree back to the rest of the soup ingredients. Add the cooked shrimp to the rest of the soup, and simmer for 5 more minutes. Serve hot and top with remaining bacon pieces. Garnish with parsley if desired.

This soup is such a great comfort food and a delicious dinner to serve your family any night of the week.  Everyone will love the savory flavor of the bacon with the shrimp, along with the sweetness of the corn.  It has the perfect texture, as its both creamy and chunky – perfect for dunking bread.

As the days get shorter, and night come sooner, bring this fantastic comfort food to the table.  It will not only warm your body, it will warm soul as well.

Enjoy!

The proof is in the pudding – literally!  These Caramel Apple Snack Pack Stacks made with Caramel Snack Pack Pudding cups and paired with an apple and caramel Crunch and Munch make the perfect fall treat!  #SnackPackMixins #CollectiveBias

Snack Pack Caramel Pudding paired with an apple and caramel Crunch and Much to make the perfect fall goodie!

Now that fall has finally arrived, I love nothing more than enjoying the delicious flavors of the seasons, particularly Caramel Apples.  However, I don’t always enjoy the mess of making caramel apples.  So when I came across caramel Snack Pack pudding cups, I immediately wanted to give them a try.  Not only are they super delicious, but I paired these Snack Pack’s with an Granny Smith Apple and Caramel Crunch and Munch to create these adorable Caramel Apple Snack Pack Stacks!

Snack Pack Caramel Pudding paired with an apple and caramel Crunch and Much to make the perfect fall goodie!

You can find Snack Pack Pudding cups at any Walmart.  They are easily located in the Snack aisle near the cookies and crackers.  I was able to pick up everything I needed to make these Caramel Apple Snack Pack Stacks, including the apples, Crunch and Munch caramel corn, the half-pint jars, and even the decorative burlap and ribbon right at Walmart!  Walmart was a great one-stop-shop for my entire fall project!

Caramel Apple Snack Pack Stacks by DelightfulEMade.com

 

 

Look for this Halloween Snack Pack Pudding display at Walmart, complete with #SnackPackMixins like Oreos and Nutter Butters.

To make my Caramel Apple Snack Pack Stacks, you’ll need the following items:

  • Snack Pack Pudding Cups (four-pack) – I used the Caramel flavor, but you can also use Vanilla, Chocolate, Butterscotch or Tapioca  (check out the Halloween Display like the one above at Walmart for all your favorite flavors!)
  • Granny Smith Apples (4)
  • Crunch and Munch Caramel Popcorn
  • 4-pack of Half-Pint Wide-Mouth Mason Jars (found in the Housewares section near the cooking utensils at Walmart)
  • Decorative Burlap and/or Ribbon
  • Decorative Gift Tags – I created a FREE PDF for you to download the tags.  Download the PDF here: DelightfulEMade-Caramel-Apple-of-my-Eye-Printable.

Snack Pack Caramel Pudding paired with an apple and caramel Crunch and Much to make the perfect fall goodie!

These Caramel Apple Snack Pack Stacks are super-easy to make.   Here are the simple steps:

  1. Fill your mason jars with the Crunch and Munch caramel corn.  Fill the jars all the way to the top, and seal with the lid.  (PS – no one will notice if a few handfuls of the Crunch and Munch happen to disappear.)  ;)
  2. Build your stacks.  Place the filled jars on the bottom, the apple in the middle, and the Snack Pack pudding cup on top.  Secure each item with a bit of double sided tape if needed.  This will help when your wrapping the stack with the burlap and ribbon.
  3. Add some ribbon and a Gift Tag:  If you’re adding a tag, print the PDF on cardstock, and cut out with scissors.  Add a small hole at the top using a hole punch. Tie on the tag with some cute ribbon and your done!  You can also use a wider ribbon in place of the burlap.  Some gardening twine also looks really cute.

As you can see, these Caramel Apple Snack Pack Stacks are super-simple to make, and even easier to eat!  My son and I enjoyed these for an afternoon snack, and they were fantastic!  The creamy Snack Pack Pudding made for a wonderful dip, and the Crunch & Munch was the perfect mix-in, and provided a great crunch.  I was also really happy to see that Snack Pack pudding cups contain the same amount of calcium as an 8 oz glass of milk.  Awesome, right?!  The Caramel Flavor Snack Pack is also sugar-free and contains only 60 calories per cup.  These are such a great healthy snack option for you and your family.

These Caramel Apple Snack Pack Stacks make for wonderful classroom treats or favors for your next Halloween or Fall celebration. They would also make a fantastic gift for teachers or co-workers.  My son Harrison and I are going to make these for some of his neighborhood friends as a fun Halloween treat to enjoy before Trick-or-Treating.  Harrison is 6 years old, and this is a project that would be really easy for both of us to complete together.

As fall comes full swing, and Halloween approaches take some time to enjoy to cool crisp air and the beautiful color of the turning leaves.  Enjoy one of these Caramel Apple Snack Pack Stacks with your kids while sitting outside and talking about your day.  Happy Fall!

I totally love gnocchi, but have never made it myself.  However, as soon as I saw this Homemade Pumpkin Parmesean Gnocchi with Goat Cheese Garlic Sauce by The Gold Lining Girl, I wanted to give it a try.  Doesn’t it look delicious?!
