What's been cookin' at our house?

Since we have kind of overhauled the way we eat (and the way I was cooking), I am always on the prowl for wholesome recipes with the most basic ingredients. Basic as in whole foods, non-processed. Probably didn't need to explain that, but just in case. So in my search, I stumbled upon some recipes that I found worth mentioning. In no particular order:

The Breakfast Cookie - preparation for this little thing is far from "cooking". And I do make it minus the protein powder. But I love that it's just waiting in my refridgerator after my morning run.

Pumpkin Granola - I whipped this up this morning as Holden played and Pax slept in (as he does most mornings). I didn't have oil, so I just doubled the amount of pumpkin. Next time I'll make sure I have the oil.

Avocado Penne Pesto with Grilled chicken - Not much to say, other than DELICIOUS. I made this with whole wheat pasta. My non-avocado-eating-husband even REALLY liked it. And he doesn't get too excited about food in general. A real winner dinner!

Chicken Cacciatore - Good, healthy balanced dinner. The little guys were not huge fans. You just never know with those kids. One day they love something. The next, not so much.

Honey Banana Salad - This looks like something I'm gonna try one morning this week. Who doesn't love bananas, craisins, nuts and honey??

Sweet Potato Black Bean Chili - This is cooking in my crockpot as I type. Smells delicious. I threw in about 1 cup of frozen corn because more veggies never hurt anyone. It should be dinner for the next 2 nights. Or 3! It made ALOT.

And there are a few new little recipes that I have been cooking up at our house. Enjoy.
