In The Kitchen IV

Good morning!

A Peach! In my four years of wrinting this blog, this is the first appearance of an actual Georgia peach.

Today I am sharing some more of my kitchen adventures. The orange titles will take you to the recipes. Enjoy!


Right now I LOVE energy bites lately! I haven’t been in the mood for a huge breakfast in the mornings lately and these have been perfect. They are sweet, easy, and packed full of nutrition.

Cherry Pecan Energy Bites

Click the title to see the recipe that I went off of. I took the recipe for Cranberry Almond Energy Bites and just swapped the cranberries and almonds for dried cherries and chopped pecans. SO GOOD!

My Own!

My Own Energy Bite

Sunday night I actually concocted my own energy bite! Here’s the recipe. I haven’t named them yet. Haha!


1 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup ground flaxseed
1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
3/4 cup creamy natural nut butter
1/4 cup honey

  • Mix together oats, cherries, pecans, flaxseed, and coconut. Then add nut butter and honey and stir until evenly combined.
  • Roll into 12-14 balls and set in freezer for 20-30 minutes.
  • Move to the fridge and grab for a quick for breakfast or snack. 🙂

Pumpkin Pecan Overnight Oats

Pumpkin Pecan Overnight Oats

This makes a lot so you might want to split it into to two servings. But it’s yummy!

1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup greek yogurt
2/3 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp maple syrup
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 Tbs chopped pecans

Stir all ingredients together in breakfast bowl and refrigerate overnight. Wake up. Enjoy!

Odds and Ends Overnight Oats

Odds and Ends Overnight Oats

So basically overnight oats have four basic ingredients: oats, greek yogurt, milk, and vanilla. From there you can get creative and make them really fabulous! Here is one I made with odds in ends I had in my pantry.

1/2 cup oats
1/3 cup Greek yogurt
2/3 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 Tbs dried cherries
1 Tbs chopped pecans
1tsp chia seed
1 tsp ground flaxseed

Stir together. Set in fridge overnight. Enjoy in morning!


Creamy Parmesan One Pot Chicken and Rice

Creamy Parmesan Chicken and Rice

Chicken and rice is one of Jason’s favorite dinners. This recipe is a bit healthier and Jason said it was definitely one to have again. I would have to agree! It’s great with broccoli.

Garlic Butter Chicken

If you are looking for a healthy but flavorful dinner, look no more. This was very easy and a crowd pleaser (“crowd” being the Teal fam). I even got to use my new skillet!



Being that I am a newbie baker, I have been playing it safe with mostly cookies. But we all have to start somewhere right? Here are some amazing cookie recipes that I found that I know any cookie lover will enjoy. You will notice that most of the cookie recipes I share are “soft and chewy”. To me, this is the only way cookies should be. 😉

Thick and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies 

Thick and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

Soft. Chewy. Peanut buttery. Perfect.

Brown Butter Cookies

Brown Butter Cookies


These delightful morsels veer a bit from the everyday chocolate chip or peanut butter cookie. I thought to myself, these are for the Ben and Jerry’s lover. No vanilla here.

That’s all for this week! Let me know if you try one of these recipes or have one that you are in love with right now.

Have a great da, Peaches!

  1. Sound and look delicious !!!!! Glad to see you back to food blogging 😀. I am on a Keto kick so a few of your recipes will not work for me right now. I’m sure the Teal kiddos are loving those cookies 😁😁.

    1. Well thanks for reading Mary and it’s always good to hear from you. I hope you are well! I loved the keto diet. I definitely think it’s good for a time. And yes, the kiddos love the cookies. Lol!

  2. I love the idea of sharing what you’re cooking this week. It’s great inspiration for people to figure out what they should cook for the week! Those brown butter cookies look amazing. I may have to try them out!!
