Nanaimo Bars Recipe

Nanaimo Bars title.jpg

Up until last week I had never had a Nanaimo Bar!  I'd heard all about them, seen them all over, but never tried one! A friend and neighbor of mine, Danielle, called me up last week and asked if I wanted to make a Canadian treat with her.  When she said Nanaimo Bars I about squealed! She's from Canada, home of the Nanaimo bar and she even had the secret ingredient to making them. … [Read more...]

Easy Spicy Taco Guacamole

SpicyTaco Guacamole title.jpg

This post is sponsored by Old El Paso.  I'm the girl at all of the parties that hovers over the chips and guacamole.  It's a major weakness of mine.  I've been known to eat entire bowls of guac at our house, single-handedly.  And it still surprises my husband.  Even after six years of marriage, the guy forgets how much I can eat.  And apparently how much I love … [Read more...]

Easter Egg Chocolate Orange Sweet Rolls

Easter Egg Chocolate Orange Sweet Rolls main

This is a sponsored post by Pillsbury.   I can't believe it's already April!! It didn't even dawn on me that yesterday was April Fool's Day until it was way too late to try and pull off any pranks.  Besides, my four-year old and 21 month old probably wouldn't appreciate any of them. Not yet anyways.  So it was just another day around here.  Are we boring or … [Read more...]

Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes

Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes three.jpg

This is hardly a recipe.  It's just the best and easiest (and my new favorite) way to cook sweet potatoes! I love throwing these in the crock pot on Sundays before we leave for church.  We go to church from 1pm-4pm so by the time I get home my stomach is growling.  Something about three hours of church makes me really hungry.  I can't wait another hour and a half to cook … [Read more...]

Buffalo Chicken Nuggets with Greek Yogurt Buffalo Blue Cheese Sauce

Buffalo Chicken Nuggets title.jpg

Homemade crispy chicken nuggets. Baked, not fried! With a hint of spicy buffalo wing flavor.  These little nugs are to die for!  Brett and I love all things buffalo wing flavored,  you should know that about us.  But my poor husband didn't even get to try these.  I totally held out on him.  Like, he might be  livid if and when he reads this post.  I made … [Read more...]

Quick & Easy Cilantro Slaw

Easy Cilantro Slaw title

My friend Kelsey brought this Cilantro Slaw to a church get together a few weeks ago.  She served it with BBQ pulled pork sandwiches and it was seriously, so, so good.  I've never really been a big fan of coleslaw, or cabbage for that matter, but I couldn't get over how good this was.   I found myself getting seconds of just the slaw.      I pretty much love … [Read more...]

Browned Butter Carrot Cake Cookies {with Cream Cheese Frosting}

Browned Butter Carrot Cake Cookies title four.jpg

So....Brett and I haven't had cable for quite some time.  We've been watching most of our shows via internet streaming, anyone heard of Areo?  Don't worry, it was just shut down.  So we've turned to Hulu Plus.  Even with the internet our tv-watching has been cut in half over the last few months, maybe more, which has been really good for us.  I feel like we are more much … [Read more...]

Fluffernutter Quesadillas

Fluffernutter Quesadillas main.jpg

Fact: Kristy loves peanut butter.  Fact: Kristy loves peanut butter + marshmallow (aka fluffernutter).  Fact: Kristy has been eating one fluffernutter quesadilla every day for the last week!  Probably a fact but she's too afraid to check: Kristy has gained five pounds!!  Seriously though, this is a dangerously addicting snack...or dessert...or whatever you want … [Read more...]

Avocado & Feta Stuffed Strawberries

Avocado & Feta Stuffed Strawberries

Happy St. Patty's Day! No pinching here, today's recipe does have green it it!  Lately, my go-to salad consists of a little bit of romaine lettuce, loaded with tons of avocados, strawberries, and feta cheese.  All drizzled in a little bit of balsamic vinegar.  I find myself picking out all of the avocado, berries, and feta, and leaving most of the lettuce behind.  So instead … [Read more...]
