Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cranberry Protein Muffins

These Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cranberry Protein Muffins are a perfect snack, dessert, or mid-morning pick-me-up! This recipe makes two dozen muffins and they stay good in the fridge for upwards of two weeks in a ziplock bag or Tupperware (although they’ve never lasted that long in our house when we’ve made them).

Summer Berry Mocktail

This mocktail “The Summer Berry”, is the first of two themed drinks I created in honor of the Mom’s on the Move Podcast based out of Greenville, SC.

The “Jennifers” (both hosts are named Jennifer, which I love), created their local Facebook group and podcast because: “We want to empower each other and create a place for understanding, while also navigating tough topics, with a few laughs in between. We, as women and moms, are in this together.” Click here to connect with the Moms on the Move community, watch/listen to their podcast, and receive their exclusive biweekly newsletter. Pimento & Prose recipes and blogs are also currently featured in the Mom’s on the Move biweekly digital newsletters along with exclusive local recommendations & coupons to local Greenville shops!

Make sure to tag us @pimentoandprose and @momsonthemove_gvl when you make this exclusive cocktail at home and use the hashtags #summerberrygvl & #squeezethedaygvl too!

I used a ton of in-season, local produce for both of these drinks. The vision was to create something easy and fun to sip on for the women in my life who might not want to, or couldn’t drink alcohol for whatever reason (be it pregnancy, taking a break from drinking, etc.), but who still wanted to have a great tasting, balanced drink they could enjoy for themselves or scale up for a party!

We were also lucky enough to partner with a local Greenville restaurant, Limoncello, to be able to use their restaurant bar for some of our photos and videos for behind the scenes on how to make these drinks (check out our handles above for those later today)! 

I also wanted both drinks to be related to each other with ingredients, so both feature lemon elements and fresh, in-season fruit for our area in them (strawberries in the mocktail, and grapefruit in the cocktail!).

Squeeze the Day Cocktail

This cocktail, “Squeeze the Day”, is the second of two themed drinks I created in honor of the Mom’s on the Move Podcast based out of Greenville, SC. I used a ton of in-season, local produce for both of these drinks. The vision for this was wanting something summery and citrusy, yet sweet to sip on for the women in my life to have a great tasting, balanced, and scalable drink they could make for themselves or for a party!

Moms are great at seizing the day, so loved the play on words with the fact that this had two fresh-squeezed juices in it too!

We were also lucky enough to partner with a local Greenville restaurant, Limoncello, to be able to use their restaurant bar and house-made limoncello for this recipe and some of our photos! However, their version of this tasty liquor is not available for at-home purchase or consumption, so we used normal store-bought limoncello for our recipe testing below.

You can find Frankly’s Grapefruit Vodka in the Upstate, SC area here for around $23-$24 a bottle at 19 Wine & Spirits in Greenville, Total Wine in Greenville, or Liquor XPress 3 in Easley, or if you happen to have another grapefruit vodka to use up at home, cheers, you can use that too! We loved the fact that Frankly’s had cinnamon, a touch of maple syrup as a sweetener, was #glutenfree, organic, and even Kosher as well!

Easy No Crust Apple Pie

This recipe for Easy No Crust Apple Pie was passed down to me from my grandpa on my mom’s side. We called him Papa!

It’s super easy to make with kids and requires less than 11 ingredients. A great dessert to make to get rid of all the leftover fruit you have in your fridge and on the counter!

The vessel you bake it in will change whether this turns out more “pie”-like or “cake”-like. Basically, based on how much space the “crust” is given to rise. As you can see by my pictures above, we used a shorter, stouter baking dish, so it turned out more cake-like this time. However, if you were to make this in a traditional pie tin or glass bowl, you would get more of a shallow “crust” instead.
