Crispy Smashed Dutch Potatoes are like irresistible french fries – crispy and perfectly seasoned – but healthier. Naturally gluten-free and vegan, these little potatoes can be dressed up for a fancier dinner at home but are equally at home next to your favorite comfort-food.

Sweet slow cooker Honey Sesame Chicken can be prepped in just 10 minutes. Serve with rice and a veggie for a complete, quick meal.
There are some weeks were I’m feeling super organized. Really on my game. Ahead of schedule. I feel good those weeks.
And then there are times like the past few weeks where I feel like I’m floundering. Like every time I try to do something, it’s three times as difficult and time consuming as I imagine. I run errands only to find stores are closed or out of what I need. An easy online task turns into 15 minutes of online frustration, followed by a phone call to customer service to get something resolved.
It doesn’t help that we’ve started birthday season – so lots of planning and entertaining – that we’ve had multiple weeks of lousy winter weather, and a week with two sick kiddos.
Yeah, you can say my plate has been full for the past few weeks. And it’s only going to get worse, as birthday season continues, we have a bit of work done in the house, and my husband and I alternate travel pretty much every other week for the next few months.
My mom is coming to the rescue for my next month, but for now, I’m trying to buckle down, tackle my To Do and spend some much needed time blogging. I know that a few days of FOCUS will help me be more efficient and make me feel better. So that’s what I’m attempting to do… despite everything being much more time consuming and difficult than it should be.
This Honey Sesame Chicken is one of the recipes we’ve made during all of the Crazy recently. It’s a recipe we’ve been making for several years now – from Prevention RD, who hasn’t steered us wrong yet. It’s bright and flavorful, sweet – which my husband particularly loves. And the best part? It only takes about 10 minutes of hands on time – 5 minutes of prep, and 5 minutes of finish, making it ideal for those busy periods in your life.
I served this with quick minute rice and microwaved green beans and almonds for a complete (and easy) dinner. Enjoy!
This week, Sunday Supper is looking at recipes for getting kids Back to School. While my kids are too young (they’re in daycare year round), I’m always on the look out for easy, healthy snacks and meals for my picky toddler. It’s especially difficult for me because daycare is nut-free – and my little one loves peanut butter, raw nuts, trail mix, etc.
In an effort to introduce some variety into her school snacks, I dug into my copy of Weelicious Lunches and picked out this healthy variation on the classic rice crispy treats. Much to my dismay, Little Miss. Picky wouldn’t even taste them, but my husband and I enjoyed these treats for a couple of weeks.
“Nut Butter” Rice Crispy Balls
Adapted from Weelicious Lunches (p. 298)
Makes 25-30 balls
2/3 c. sunflower seed butter
3/4 of 2/3 c. honey
scant 4 c. gluten-free brown rice crispy cereal
Combine sunflower seed butter and honey in a small sauce pan over medium-low heat. Stir constantly until the two are combined. Remove from heat and let cool slight.
Transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Fold in cereal until cereal is completely coated.
Lay wax or parchment paper on the counter. Use an ice cream scoop or two spoons to portion out rice crispy balls. Roll each ball between wet palms. If desired, individually wrap rice crispy balls in wax or parchment paper.
Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
