Seriously. There is pumpkin EVERYWHERE. And it’s so delicious. BUT you are on a diet. You can’t possible eat any of that pumpkin stuff because it tastes SO good that it must be bad for you… right??? WRONG. Pumpkin is GOOD for you! On the 21 Day Fix, it satisfies one of those dreaded green containers. It’s true! You CAN have pumpkin pie this holiday season and NOT go off of your meal plan.  The best part about this recipe is that it’s literally takes about 3o seconds of prep and 5 minutes of cooking (in...

    Here’s the thing.  I’m on a diet.  But obviously you guys are not.  I was trying to find a theme to the last week’s roundup and all I could figure out was that a lot of people really like desserts right now. So a dessert roundup it shall be. You guys are super mean, btw.  Mini German Chocolate Cakes by Flavors by Four Krispy Confetti Eggs by BitznGiggles Lemon Drop Shake by The First Year Blog Gooey Oatmeal Cranberry Bars by I Want Crazy M&M Cookie Bars by Our Table For...

Once in awhile, when I make a recipe, I get a fantastic idea for a different recipe that is similar but also completely different. A little while ago, I was making Traci’s Bacon and Cream Cheese Appetizers and I had the brilliant idea to make these Cinnamon Bites. Which made me think… what else could be made that is similar to these recipes? I think the possibilities are ENDLESS!  Anyway, these turned out AMAZING. Huge hit. Literally gone in seconds. They didn’t look super pretty, but who cares, right?...

During the last two weeks, a ton of FABULOUS cookie recipes have been shared in the Lovely Ladies Linkup. I thought I would do a round up of all of them so you can see them all in one place. Be sure to pin this post to get more exposure to your blog post if your recipe is one of the featured ones!

  These brownies are awesome. Seriously. I would know, I made them. I love brownies from scratch SO much better than the box. Usually I use cocoa powder but this time I decided to try using actual chocolate chips and the results were awesome. So, like all the other recipes I think are awesome, I decided to share the recipe with you!  It’s pretty easy. You’re going to melt the chocolate and butter until it’s completely smooth. I did this in a sauce pan on medium heat. I stirred constantly because I am SO good...

  I don’t know why I call these Christmas Caramels. For some reason I associate home made caramels with Christmas. Maybe it’s because they make an AWESOME gift to give to neighbors during the holidays. Maybe it’s just because they are as amazing as Christmas. I don’t know. Whatever the reason, these things are seriously THE BOMB. I ate like six this morning. For breakfast. (don’t judge.)  So my friend, Sarah, who owns The Vinyl Company, an awesome etsy shop with super cute vinyl products, makes these...

Have I ever mentioned how much I Love my Mother in law? Seriously, I won the jackpot. I have ALWAYS heard SO MANY horror stories about bad mother in laws and issues, and I was honestly planning on having to work through some things, but, when I met my husband’s Mom I was so excited! I have been around/in the family for six-ish years and never had any problems. She is absolutely wonderful and my kids adore her {and I do, too!} She is an incredible example, and I really look up to her. Not too mention she raised my husband, which is...

 During the month of October, Traci and I are doing a 31 days to a closer family series. Each day we share a post about ways to make your family closer. Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite recipes.   Not only is this one of my favorite recipes, but it is also a perfect recipe for fall time. Imagine pumpkin pie only in cake form. Delicious!  What does this have to do with making your family closer? Um… it’s food. Enough said, right? Nothing like gathering around the table after dinner for a little bedtime...

This month, the blog is all about families. Check out this post to see the lineup for the month & see the posts that are already up. These are just suggestions that have helped our own families grow closer, but maybe they’ll help yours, too.  When I was growing up, Sunday was cookie day. Every Sunday when we got home from church, my dad would help my siblings and I make chocolate chip cookies. Each Sunday we made hundreds (at least it seemed that way to me.) My favorite part about it was after they were all made, we would...
