Banana Cream Caramel Cheesecake Dip main

It's always a little weird explaining to people what my job is.  Writing a food blog. Taking pictures of food.  Sharing recipes with people online. Some people look at me like I'm crazy, it's confusing to some, and some people think it's awesome.  Telling people that I attended a food blogger's conference in Miami, Florida gets me more of those crazy looks.   But that's … [Read more...]

Rainbow Sprinkle Cheesecake Cookies

Rainbow Sprinkle Cheesecake Cookies || Sweet Treats and More

I think kids will eat anything if it's got sprinkles in it, or on it.  I've been pouring sprinkles in a small bowl of greek yogurt, slicing up some fruit, and calling it fruit dip.  My kids got nuts for it.  I of course have to keep pouring in sprinkles, because really, that's all they are after- the bright, colorful, little specks of SUGAR! But I figure hey, they're getting some … [Read more...]

On Friday, little Miles turned one.  How a his first year went by so quickly baffles me.  To think this time last year I was snuggling a very sleepy, very tiny, new born baby boy makes my heart burst a little.  I loved that new born baby stage.   But one year old Miles is pretty incredible too.  And so much fun.  We still can't get enough his forever … [Read more...]

100 Days of Delight

snack delights

I used to think being a stay at home mom would be the best and easiest job in the world.  After three years of being on the job, I can say that it is the best job in the world (for me), but probably the hardest.  And that's okay, because I wouldn't trade it any other job- it was a choice I made and I'm grateful that I get to be at home with my boys every day. It's definitely not always … [Read more...]
