Hey ya’ll! It’s Marci here (Dena’s favorite sister in law). I know I’ve been MIA for quite awhile. I’ve been busy raising the three children, fixing up the house and I have started a new website (My Heavenly Recipes) that has grown bigger than I could’ve ever imagined in just the few months it’s been up and running. It’s been a confirmation for me that I’m doing the right thing!
I wanted to share 3 easy recipes with you that you can make from home and stop purchasing at the grocery store. You see over the past 3 years I’ve been on a huge health kick. We no longer eat processed foods or foods that contain GMO’s and try to skip the majority of dyed foods. For about 6 months I noticed a HUGE change in my girls when they wouldn’t have red and blue dyes. They literally turned into monsters when they have these sorts of foods (think Fruit Loops, suckers, fruit snacks, etc.). Once I began to see their behaviors change before my eyes I demanded no more dyes. The hubby thought I was crazy, but, what else is new.
So today I want you to try these 3 easy recipes:
When you purchase white bread from the grocery store it has quite a bit of corn syrup in it. We don’t need that in white bread…with my White Bread Recipe you can make 1 loaf of bread and turn the other half of the dough into hamburger buns.
The next recipe I want you to try is my Homemade Hershey Syrup recipe. It’s SUPER simple to make, the kids can help and it’s pretty much delicious on anything. I put it in my Chocolate Chip Cookies, Hershey Sundae Pie and just a plain old ice cream sundae!
One of the staples that I bet your family turns to on a weekly basis is Mac N Cheese. I’ve got a super quick Stovetop Mac N Cheese recipe for you. It takes about 5 extra minutes than making the blue box stuff and rids your family of the vast majority of yellow dyes. If you use a colby cheese you’ll have the dye, but, I haven’t seen any major differences with the kids having it so it’s ok in moderation in my home.
I hope you’ll join me over on my new adventure, MyHeavenlyRecipes.com. I literally started it as a collection of recipes that my girls can one day use and work on in their own kitchens with their family…. until then, I’ll keep adding the recipes that they love!
