Roasted Tomatoes

Ever since I discovered you could roast tomatoes, I have been in tomato heaven.  I have already roasted 5 pans of tomatoes.  And amazing enough all of the tomatoes were from my garden.  I planted about 10 tomato plants this year but the most prolific were the Roma tomatoes.  Romas make perfect roasted tomatoes because they are […]

Eggless Cookie Dough for Two

One of the things I have missed eating since becoming pregnant is cookie dough. I mean, who doesn’t love licking the bowl clean after making a batch of cookies, or eating a small grabful along the way. But also I’ve missed licking out my bowls of cake batter, and brownie batter. Finally, with a little […]

Easy Fruit Smoothie

Mmm, I love smoothies. I love drinking them for breakfast, for a snack, or for a healthier dessert option. In fact, I think one of my best friend’s and I truly connected over drinking smoothies together. She and I had class together my first semester at BYU, it was a freshman English class. I hadn’t […]


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 […]


Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

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

Yesterday during some down time at work I decided to browse instagram for a few minutes. One of my favorite bloggers shared a picture of some peanut butter caramel corn and I knew that was a snack I had to make right away. I also had a half can of sweetened condensed milk left in […]


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 […]
