No Bake Peanut Butter Chip Granola Bars

No Bake Peanut Butter Chip Granola Bars

Several times a week, I go through my pantry and grab a few healthy snacks to stock my desk drawer with at work. Once 10:00 rolls around, I'm a hungry girl, and often reach for a granola bar or some fruit to tide me over until lunch. One item that I always keep in my pantry is granola bars. The hubster and I go through these like hotcakes. And we each have our own boxes too....chocolate chip for Read more


Liebster Award and More About Me

Happy Thursday, everyone! You may have noticed that today is not my usual day that I share a recipe with you all (don’t worry, something yummy will be appearing tomorrow). Instead, I’m going to take a little time to share more about myself! I was graciously nominated by Liz from Floating Kitchen for a Liebster Award. For those of you unfamiliar with this, it is a blogging award passed down to Read more

Brownie Brittle Yogurt Parfait

Every month or so, the hubster and I make a Costco run to stock up on some essential items. We usually go one night during the week, straight from work. The crowds are more bearable, the parking lot is less crowded, and I am more free to wander around the store. If you’ve ever been to Costco, you know what I’m talking about. Have you been there on a Saturday? It’s like a mad house! People are Read more

Oreo Pudding Pops

Oreo Pudding Pops

We're smack-dab in the middle of summer. It's hot. It's humid. The AC is on full blast. You could fry an egg on the sidewalk. Do you feel this way, too? Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love summer and don't want it to end anytime soon. But this heat? It's scorchin' hot! And when it's blazin' outside, I long to be in the shade with a cool breeze blowing, or happily holed up in an air-conditioned Read more


Corn and Tomato Salad

Summer just screams salad season, doesn't it? Don't get me wrong, salads are wonderful anytime of the year, but they just seem to taste better in the summer. Fresh produce, bright pops of color, and light dressings are the perfect lunch (or dinner) for me. And now that I have become a regular at my town's farmer's market, I'll use any excuse I can find to stock up on some delicious fruits and Read more


Fresh Peach Cake

Growing up, my parents let my brother and I choose what kind of dessert we wanted for our birthdays. While my brother always chose an oreo ice cream cake or chocolate cake, I often declined those desserts. I wasn’t a fan of cake, mainly because of the frosting. It was just too sweet and tasted not-so good to me. I often would scrape it off the top and throw it away. Stop shaking your head at me, Read more


Funfetti Cake Batter Milkshake

Last week, the hubster and I ventured out to Dairy Queen.  We both had a craving for ice cream…well, more so the hubster, (he practically eats some every night), so we decided it was a DQ kinda night.  We both usually get the same thing…a French silk pie blizzard for the hubster, and either the brownie batter blizzard or some other type of cake-filled one for me. But when we walked in Read more


Caramel Fudge Brownies

Have you ever walked into something, say the corner of a dresser or table, hobbled away in pain, and discovered a bruise there days later? And once you find that lovely black and blue mark, can’t remember for the life of you how it got there? Yep, that’s happened to me more times than I care to admit. I’m not necessarily the clumsiest person around, but I have a habit of walking into things all Read more
