Back to School Kindle Fire Giveaway

Are you already back to school, or do you have kids who have gone back to school? This is the first year that we don’t have any one going back to school since Nate graduated in the spring and its WONDERFUL! But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to go back to school shopping still, […]

Strawberry Piña Colada Smoothie

A couple weeks ago I shared a delicious and refreshing pina colada smoothie and today I have an alternative but equally delicious version, with strawberries added to the mix. Its just as simple to make as a traditional pina colada smoothie, because all you have to do is add strawberries to the blender too. I […]

White Chocolate Chip Biscoff Blondies

I think I was probably one of the last people to jump on the Biscoff spread bandwagon. I had of course tried Biscoff cookies on our flights across the country to visit family, but not until this last Christmas did I try Biscoff spread. I was immediately sold on it. I mostly like just eating […]

Piña Colada Smoothie

Smoothies are so refreshing in the summertime (or anytime) and this Piña Colada Smoothie is no exception. But heck, I’d probably love to drink this smoothie all year round. It combines the delicious flavors of pineapple and coconut in a cold refreshing drink. My version is virgin – alcohol free, since I don’t drink alcohol. And […]

Candy Bar Surprise Cookies

My sister in law has made these candy bar surprise cookies for us a couple times and they’ve always been so good. The vanilla cake mix in the dough gives the cookie a delicious, cake mix flavor (but it doesn’t have a cakey texture) plus it makes the dough super easy to make with just […]

Fluffernutter S’mores

Fluffernutter is the combination of peanut butter and marshmallow. It started out as a sandwich, but lots of people have adapted it to make tons of delicious recipes. And when I was thinking of what varieties of s’mores I could make, well of course a s’more has to have the marshmallow, but what about adding […]

Mint Cherry Limeade

I love a cold refreshing drink in the summer time. The days are hot and I just want to spend my time in the pool with a cool beverage by my side. My favorite cool drinks are types of lemonade – and this mint cherry limeade is no exception. Nate helped me come up with […]

Better than Anything Brownies

I’m sure you’ve all heard of the popular “better than anything cake”. If you haven’t, its a chocolate poke cake, drizzled with a mixture of sweetened condensed milk and caramel, that soaks into the cake to make it extra moist and delicious, then its topped with cool whip and toffee bits. That does sound heavenly, […]

Slimming Down with Slimfast

**This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Slimfast, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #14daystoslim  http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV I’m gonna be honest, I gained more weight than I should have while I was pregnant. They suggest that an average weight person before pregnancy should gain about […]

Snickerdoodle Ice Cream Sandwiches

Last week I made a fresh batch of snickerdoodle cookies, although I would’ve been perfectly happy eating all the delicious cookies as is. I also had some extra vanilla ice cream in the freezer and I decided, how good would some snickerdoodle ice cream sandwiches be? You can use whatever flavor of ice cream you […]

Celebrating the Bright Side of Life with Fruttare Frozen Fruit Bars

As a new mother, its hard not to complain sometimes when you feel exhausted after not getting more than a few hours of sleep a night and you feel like your baby is crying all day long. I finally feel like I’m getting in a routine with Colby and he is sleeping 6 hours straight […]

Peach Cobbler Bars

Cobbler is another dessert that reminds of summertime and camping. I love cooking up some peach cobbler in our dutch oven when we go camping and I love how simple it is to make too (with only 3 ingredients in my dutch oven version). But when I’m home I want the delicious taste of peach […]
