Super Snack Pack Pudding for a Quick and Easy Snack

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine. Being pregnant makes me hungry pretty much all day long. Luckily, I’m passed the point of feeling nauseous when I don’t eat, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to eat and feel the need to eat […]


Orange Berry Smoothie

I can’t believe I have not posted a single smoothie recipe before here at LMLD,  so let this orange berry smoothie be the very first.  I drink a smoothie 2 to 3 times a week for breakfast, usually it is very simple – fruit and juice with the occasional spinach thrown in to make a […]

Kumquat Chocolate Bark

This kumquat chocolate bark recipe is easy and quick to make, it just requires a little time for the chocolate to harden. Do you love kumquats?  or do you think they are way too tart?  My mom loved kumquats and would just pop them in her mouth and eat them whole.  That is one way […]

Marshmallow Caramel Popcorn

We are huge popcorn fans over here. Give us microwave, movie theater, air popped, whatever, we love it. We usually make it with our old fashioned popcorn popper that makes the best salted and buttered or kettle corn I’ve ever had from home. Delicious. But I also love caramel corn. When making caramel corn I […]

Candied Almonds

Candied almonds are a great treat to make in the winter time. The smell of the sugars and the cinnamon together just reminds me of winter. The sweet smell in the air is so strong and beautiful. And the smell of roasted nuts, isn’t that just perfect for Christmas time too? (Chestnuts roasting on an […]


Peanut Butter Caramel Popcorn

Muddy Buddies – Puppy Chow

Muddies buddies are something I remember fondly loving as a child. I don’t think we would make (and eat) them that often, but I remember absolutely adoring them every time we did. This is such a simple recipe, and it makes a good snack or dessert to share. I decided it would be a perfect […]


Caramel Popcorn

I actually don’t like store bought caramel popcorn. Its too hard, and I don’t really love the flavor. But homemade caramel popcorn is amazing. And this treat is so easy, that I have made it 3 times in the last month or so.  (So, if you are only a fan of store bought caramel popcorn, […]


Pretzel Kisses

The fun thing about this treat is that you can make any combination, with the vast number of flavors of both kisses and m&ms to your liking or based on the occasion. For my variety I made it pretty simple. Hugs with basic chocolate m&ms. But my mom made these a while back with dark chocolate […]
