Honey Walnut Date Bites

I have enjoyed baking and concocting recipes with Savannah Bee Honey’s various flavors of honey. In this particular video, I used Tupelo Honey. It’s very sweet and tastes kind of like toffee which made it a perfect candidate for my Honey Walnut Date Bites. Tupelo Honey also is one of the most rarest honey on the planet! For you honey people out there, this is one honey you gotta try.

These Honey Walnut Date Bites are the perfect snack for work, home or wherever you may be. It curbs your appetite so when you start getting a little “hangry” before dinner. Yes, I know exactly how you feel :).

Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

Garlic mashed cauliflower is delicious. There isn’t more to say. The touch of honey and olive oil balance out the strong garlic flavor to make this a winner on any table. Even though Ky loves potatoes, Maggie has never been the biggest fan. This is where we can both compromise on an even more delectable level.

But be warned, this portion will not feed a whole family. Definitely double the recipe if you want to feed the kids as well.

The best part about this cauliflower recipe is that there is no starch residue.

Apple Chicken Cucumber Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing

I love salad. I try to eat it once a day. Twice a day if I’m lucky. 🙂 Salads are not only super healthy, but also incredibly cheap. A head of lettuce is like a dollar at the store. Awesome. And the sunflower seeds, raisins and cucumber were all under a dollar individually. Why are salads usually so expensive at restaurants? I never have quite figured that one out yet. This way you get a way more salad for a quarter of the price.

Apple Chicken Cucumber Salad

I like to mix and match different food items together, I mean that’s what a salad is, right? Just throw in the stuff you have lying around the house. But this Apple Chicken Cucumber Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing is one of my favorites. It has sweet aspects from the apples, raisins and honey, and spicy aspects from the mustard and spices. And then the chicken and sunflower seeds really kick out the flavor. And what I think brings it all together? The chopped boiled eggs. They’re the bridge between the dressing and the salad. You would’ve never thought these ingredients would go so well together, but they do!

Usually the most unhealthy part of a salad is the dressing. But this dressing is non-fat and only sweetened with a little bit of honey. Cha-ching! Now you finally have an excuse to eat like a pig. I saved a little portion for Ky, but I essentially ate it all when I turned off the camera. It’s just too delicious. I guess I just found my excuse. 😉

Homemade Honey Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls

http://https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-1L4DbDNGE

 

Homemade cinnamon rolls were always a Christmas tradition in my family. I always get more excited about something when there’s yummy food involved. I would wake up on Christmas morning and smell fresh cinnamon rolls in the oven. A lot of people think cinnamon rolls are super difficult to make. But that’s not true. The hardest part is waiting for the dough to rise, but you can do other things while that is happening. Watch the video for tips and tricks on how to make the process a lot easier.

The secret ingredient is 1 cup of mashed potatoes making this an old pioneer recipe. The potatoes make the dough softer and more moist.

The only thing unhealthy about this recipe is the butter and cinnamon sugar you sprinkle inside the roll. But no worries, the honey whole wheat take away some guilt. 🙂 You can add whatever frosting you like. I personally like a cream cheese honey frosting on top.

Banana Sandwich

My husband and I literally ate this banana sandwich every single day for college. It’s the perfect treat when you’re always on the go and need something portable and sustainable. After eating this sandwich for years, it’s hard for me to go back to the boring PB&J. The banana gives the bread moisture and a sense of purpose. Make sure you use natural peanut butter. Stay away from any hydrogenated fats. And I think it tasted better when it’s just roasted peanuts and salt.

The very first time I made this banana sandwich for Ky (my husband) was when he asked me to hike to the top of Mount Timpanogos. I volunteered to provide the lunch. At the top of the mountain with the amazing view, we sat and ate our banana, peanut butter and honey sandwich. Right after he leaned over and bam! That was our first kiss. So you might say this sandwich has cupid like qualities too :). Either way it’s easy to make and super delicious.
