Baked Gluten Free Lemon Blueberry Doughnuts // If you are a doughnut lover but don't want all of the extra calories and sugar, give these baked doughnuts a try. With a little bit of citrus paired with plump & juicy blueberries - these are perfect for breakfast or dessert! | Tried and TastyI have been itching like you wouldn’t believe to make homemade doughnuts. In fact, surprisingly of all of the kitchen appliances/gadgets/pans I have, I didn’t even own a donut pan until recently. What better occasion than National Doughnut Day? I’ve teamed up with my foodie friends to bring you a collection of all-sorts-of-yummy delicious doughnut recipes today that will leave you drooling and headed to the kitchen to make your own! I just got back from my first trip to Portland earlier this week and doughnuts have been on my mind all week long. These are a much better alternative to the sinfully indulgent pastries I was partaking in.

I’ve been on a major gluten free kick. Not for any specific reason (aside from the stories circulating about wheat that I’m not quite sure what to think of) but mostly because using oat flour has become my new favorite thing. If you missed my How To Make Your Own Flour & Nut Milk series I highly suggest you check it out. While buying oat flour is easy peasy, it’s just as easy to make your own. Back to the doughnuts. That’s why you are here. I made these for my mother-in-law on Mother’s Day and almost didn’t make it out the door with any. They are SO delicious, I was super surprised with how healthy they are that they would be AS tasty as they are. 

Ultimate Cobb Salad // Pull this healthy salad together in no time.  Makes for a bright & colorful appetizer, lunch, or side dish. Great all year long, filing, and delicious! | Tried and TastyThe BBQ basics series continues with this Ultimate Cobb Salad. You can’t have salad without salad dressing, so today you’ll find me over on the Blendtec blog with the recipe for my Homemade Ranch Dressing. I’ve been wanting to add a Cobb salad recipe to the site for a while now and I’m so happy that I finally did. It’s SO easy and super delicious. I’m a huge salad fan and always used to love going to Sizzler and Golden Corral when I was younger. Where would I go first? The salad bar! I don’t venture to buffets much anymore (unless I’m on a cruise, and then I do visit the Windjammer quite frequently) and always will I create a salad before anything else.

Assembling your own salad with lots of bright colorful veggies is not only appealing to the eye, but also appealing to the belly too. I could hardly pull this together without wanting to gobble it all up before it was assembled. While I normal use my Oven Baked Hard Boiled Eggs method, for these I didn’t have quite as much time. So I called up my mom and got her fool proof method: in a small pot bring your eggs and water to a boil. Boil for five minutes. Remove from heat and cover for 10 minutes. Immediately transfer to ice cold water. Voila! A perfectly boiled egg in 15 minutes! Man, I love calling up my mom for her trusty tips and instructions. Works every time! 

Crinkle Cut Sweet Potato Fries // Why buy storebought sweet potato fries when you can make your own? These are just like what you'd find at the store but only better! With just a few ingredients, these would be the perfect side dish for any grilled hamburgers or hot dogs at your next BBQ! | Tried and TastyBBQ season is in full swing! I’m continuing my ‘BBQ Basics Made In A Blender’ series with Blendtec, and over on the Blendtec Blog you will find my Homemade Fry Sauce recipe. It is phenomenal. I’m a huge sweet potato fry fan and while it’s easy to just buy a package of fries from the store, it’s just as easy to make them at home yourself! I’ve said it over and over again, I love making things at home instead of buying them as much as I can. Being able to control the ingredient list is priceless. 

While I love my Oven-Baked Crispy Sweet Potato Fries, I wanted to switch things up and I remembered I had my crinkle cutter in the drawer – so I excitedly got it out and gave it a shot. You should have seen me. I was like a kid in a candy store. They looked SO real. Ha. They are real. They looked so much like what you would buy in the store and they were beyond easy to cut! All you have to do is peel your sweet potato and then slice it with the crinkle cutter. First vertically, and then horizontally into the fries. I’m telling you, these are delightful with my homemade fry sauce. Give them a try and tell me what you think!

Bruschetta Turkey Burger // The flavors of this tender juicy burger will send you through the roof! Out of this world, you've just got to try it! Add this to your summertime BBQ rotation and you'll look forward to grilling time and time again! | Tried and TastyWho’s ready for grilling season? I’ll be the first to stand in that line! Today I’m kicking off a weeklong ‘BBQ Basics Made In A Blender’ series showcasing all the fun things my Blendtec can do that will help make your BBQ the best ever. Today you’ll find me over on the Blendtec Blog giving you the most delicious homemade Savory Garlic Butter you’ve ever tasted. Made with your Blendtec! If you haven’t made your own butter you MUST try it. It’s so easy I thought I was doing something wrong, and then magically butter appeared! I already can’t wait to make more varieties – so don’t be surprised if you see a few recipes popping up around here!

Last year for a week in May I ran a burger series that was one of my favorite weeks of the year. I love, love, love grilling and love just as much: burgers! My Swiss Turkey Burger (which actually wasn’t in the series) was and still is one of my favorite burgers. I had no idea you could make a burger out of ground turkey that would be moist and delicious. When I think of using ground turkey I immediately think: dry. Absolutely not the case, especially if you make this Bruschetta Turkey Burger. First bite and I was dancing on cloud nine. So much flavor. So much intensity. So much love. The great thing is how easy this is to whip up. If you need a great bruschetta recipe, check out my Italian Tomato & Basil Bruschetta!
