Strawberry Frosted Sugar Cookie Bars

After making a few different varieties of sugar cookie bars, I don’t think I’ll ever stop. They’re one of my favorite easy to make desserts now and so much better than a traditional sugar cookie.

Fig Pistachio Ice Cream

The taste of Italy. That’s what this Fig Pistachio Ice Cream is the taste of Italy.  I know we think pizza or spaghetti when you think Italian food but I also think of gelato and  fig pistachio ice cream.  Craig and I visited our Italian daughter, Marta, and her parents in Bergamo, Italy about 18 […]

Peanut Butter, Banana and Oat Blender Muffins

**This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Balmex for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Being a mom can be completely exhausting. From the not sleeping through the night, to the running around chasing your toddler, to putting up with tantrums, to the worrying. Most of all the worrying about whether you’re doing […]
