Chocolate Oreo Mug Cake

Chocolate Oreo Mug Cake | Sweet Treats and More

   Happy Monday! Things have been a little quiet over here lately for two reasons: 1) I have a hard time cooking new meals in the summer. It’s like grilled chicken and vegetables is on repeat, and that’s just not too exciting to blog about. 2) I’ve been working on a brand spankin’ new website. A…

Easy Margherita Pizza


The last couple of months we’ve been having themed meal nights, Mexican night and pizza night. It makes meal planning a lot easier as well as the grocery shopping.  The other nights of the week I try to make something new.  Taco night has consisted of a variety of tacos, taco salad, fajitas, Mexican rice…

Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie

This Nestle Toll House Pie is like a giant, warm and gooey chocolate chip cookie!  Sliced and served warm with a big ol’ scoop of ice cream or fresh whipping cream, and you’ve got yourself a little slice of heaven. It’s definitely rich and full of all kinds of calories that are hard to ignore,…

Fuji Apple & Chicken Salad with Litehouse’s Fuji Apple Vinaigrette

I’ve got the perfect spring/summer salad for you today!  It’s been a favorite of mine for lunch lately.  I’m talking crisp Romaine lettuce, sliced Fuji apples, strawberries, celery, some slivered almonds, Feta cheese, and chicken all tossed together with my new favorite Fuji Apple Vinaigrette dressing from Litehouse. Have you tried it??? You seriously need…

Grilled Chicken Cordon Bleu Sandwiches

chicken cordon bleu feat

After putting Owen to bed the other night,  I went outside and sat on our balcony to read for a little bit.  I could hardly focus on my book because our neighbors were out grilling and that “BBQ smell” overcame me (you know that smell, right?).  That smell not only makes me hungry (even if I’ve already…

Pineapple-Lime Yogurt Pops

After enjoying really warm and summer-like weather this weekend, I’m convinced I never want to be pregnant during the hot summer months.  It would be miserable! I’m certain I’d live off of Popsicles, otter pops, and sno-cones.   I’m so glad this baby is coming at the beginning of June!   We spent Saturday afternoon at…

Earthquake Cake


Brett and I took dinner to some friends that just had their first baby, and I made this Earthquake Cake for dessert.  Typically you’d make this in a 9×13 inch cake pan but because most new mom’s are trying to lose the baby weight, and because it’s just the two of them plus the new…

Black Bean Sloppy Joes


  I was browsing magazines while waiting at a doctor’s appointment a couple of weeks ago and came upon these Black Bean Sloppy Joes.  I pretty much love anything with black beans, and secretly love sloppy joes, so I couldn’t wait to give them a try.           I quickly made a…

Easy Lemon Cheese Bars & 30 Weeks!

I’ll get to this good stuff in a minute…. But first, a pregnancy update! Tuesday marked 30 weeks for me:)  I’ll most likely be having another c-section since my babies like to sit nice and cozy, breech, in my uterus (I actually have a weird shaped utereus, so guess it’s not babies’ fault;)).  But at least…

Crock Pot Buffalo Wing Drumsticks

I’ve recently started price-matching at Wal-Mart and have found it saves us a good chunk of change on groceries.  I tried couponing for a couple of months and failed miserably at it.  Price-matching is so much easier and doesn’t take near the amount of time and effort that couponing does.    A good friend of…
