  • Granola bars are quick, easy to make

    By Ciara Hyatt, Cooking Columnist

    My first week of healthy eating and exercising was a success.

    I worked out and had a smoothie for breakfast every day last week. I even tried a new recipe for something I have never made before, granola bars.

    I would have never guessed these things were so easy to make and now that I see how quick and yummy they are I am excited to switch them up a bit by adding different nuts and dried fruits to the recipe.

  • Let smoothies help get new year off to healthy start

    By Ciara Hyatt, Cooking Columnist

    2016 is here, and for most of us the new year comes with lots of plans and goals … and unfortunately, a few extra pounds.

    This year, instead of backing away from the table and ending up hungry (and not a very happy person to be around), I’ve decided to simply fill the table with healthier foods. I am not going to make the same mistake as last year by beginning a rigorous exercise routine with a hungry belly.

  • Several tasty ideas to spice up your New Year’s Eve

    By Ciara Hyatt, Cooking Columnist

    My New Year’s Eve celebrations are usually spent at home with my husband and children and maybe a few close friends and family.

    But just because its spent here on the farm, playing board games, drinking sparkling grape juice and trying to stay awake till 12:01 a.m. doesn’t mean that I don’t put a lot of effort in to what snacks I will serve. Since both of my kids really like to help out in the kitchen, I need to make sure this is something they want to help prepare and eat.
