Hi everyone! I’m Jen from Yummy Healthy Easy. I’m super excited to be here at Lil Luna today to share one of my fave side dish recipes!
A little about me: I live in beautiful Southern California with my husband and our four wild and crazy boys. You could say I’m surrounded by testosterone all day, ha! You’ll usually find me blogging at YHE about healthier budget & family friendly dishes, but I also enjoy sharing yummy desserts, too! Thanks for having me today!
I’ll be honest, I hate coming up with new side dishes at dinnertime. I tend to make the same things over and over. I’m guilty of just steaming a veggie and calling it a day.

I love adding them to just about everything – from oatmeal for breakfast to salmon at dinner. Everything is better with almonds!

I have lemons coming out of my eyeballs now. A little lemon zest and some lemon juice brings the best flavor out in these green beans. They are absolutely delicious! Read More »
