In honor of Valentine’s Day, I decided to make the boys and I some homemade strawberry frozen yogurt. It a wonderful red color, healthy and just screams Valentine’s Day!
Now, I can’t take all the credit for this recipe but the problem is, I’m not sure whom to give the credit to. I saw it on Pinterest and it led to a broken link. I HATE that. I was able to see from the picture what ingredients were in it but had no clue on how much of each. So I guessed. I must be having a good guessing day because this stuff is fabulous! I could sit and eat the entire bowl full.
The best part is, it’s four ingredients and the food processor does it all. Yeah for new food processors and being lazy!
I can’t wait to try the frozen yogurt over my heart shaped Shakeology Brownies! Who says you can’t enjoy the sweetness of Valentine’s Day and still be healthy?!?

This time of year, soup is one of our dinners a couple of times a week. Especially when the weather is cold and snowy outside. No that it has been this winter but it is supposed to be a high of 1° this weekend, so this recipe will come in handy. This minestrone is definitely one of my favorites! A classic, hearty Italian soup with tomatoes, white beans, fresh vegetables and pasta. You can use Swiss chard or kale instead of spinach if you wish and you can omit the pasta if you don’t want the carbs. It’s still yummy without it.
One of the best things about this soup is the rind of Parmesan that I like to throw in as it cooks. It gives the soup a wonderful flavor. I keep them in my freezer. If you do not have a rind, simply toss in some fresh grated Parmesan as it cooks.
This can be made in both the slow cooker or on the stove. Either way turns out great. Serve with a nice loaf of crusty bread or small sandwiches and you have yourself an easy, delicious meal!
