These mini caramel pecan cinnamon rolls are just as easy to make, but instead of an icing they have a caramel sauce and chopped pecans. These caramel pecan […]

Mini Cinnamon Rolls

These amazing mini cinnamon rolls are made without yeast using crescent roll dough for the cinnamon roll dough. A couple Christmases back my mother in law made some of these mini cinnamon rolls for everyone to enjoy for a late breakfast. I’m not really sure why I hadn’t made these myself until recently, I’ve made […]

It’s not easy being green.  I am stealing a few words from Kermit because I agree with him.  It isn’t easy being green, it is not […]

Apple Crumb Muffins

Fall means apples! And we are blessed with two apple trees.  Which pretty much guarantees lots of apples every year.  It is such a treat to walk out our front door and pick our own apples to eat.  We enjoy them fresh off the tree, baked in pies, made into applesauce, and even dried with […]

Peach Berry Smoothie Bowl

I will admit this Peach Berry Smoothie Bowl was inspired by Aimee’s Raspberry Peach Smoothie.  You will notice that the recipes are almost identical with a few minor adjustments.  But the biggest adjustment is you are eating this smoothie, in a bowl, like cold soup, with granola and fresh fruit toppings.  And you are loving […]

Smoothie Bowl

I created my first ever smoothie bowl. I devoured my first ever smoothie bowl.  I will guarantee it will not be my last, oh such goodness in one simple bowl.  Refreshing, exhilarating, fresh, energizing, revitalizing, delectable, delightful, luscious, yummy, enticing, fresh, hearty  – I am not sure I can come up with enough adjectives to […]

Citrus Yogurt with Citrus Honey Syrup

I had citrus yogurt with citrus honey syrup for breakfast this morning after a 40 minute run. Yes, I am running!  Huff, huff, huff!  The Avocado 5K will be my first race EVER.  I am excited, nervous, hesitant, and ready.   The 5K ‘s first half is all down hill which means the last half is […]
