Many years ago I was introduced to a little piece of heaven called the Oreo Truffle. A friend would make them once a year and sell them at a fundraiser auction. They were always the hot ticket. When I learned how easy they were to make I was shocked! This delicious piece of candy is only a few ingredients!? It couldn't be! These guys are so so perfect for valentine's day! Your valentine will love a box of these as their gift. My husband was so excited to come home and savor . . .
Do you need a fast, easy, yummy cookie recipe to make before Santa arrives to an empty plate? Well I have the perfect recipe for you. These chocolate cookies are such a cinch to whip up and you make them in your waffle iron! My mom used to make these when I was a kid and we adored them. My 3 year old helped me make up this batch and loved waiting patiently for the waffle iron to bake these cookies. These cookies are soft and chocolatey and and the icing is the perfect finishing . . .
Trader Joe's has some of my favorite Christmas treats. Among them are their Jo Joe's. They are similar to Oreos with chocolate wafers but have a peppermint cream in the middle. After buying a package and eating them within 24 hours, I realized that I could bake something like it at home. With a homemade Oreo wafer recipe and some candy canes, I thought this Christmas season I could make my own Joe Joe's. I present to you the result of my experiment: Ho Ho's (I'll keep it clean without the . . .
There is one thing we are all obsessed with, and it's Blendtec. We all have one, each purchased on our own years and years ago. These things are incredible. We all got them with the smoothie craze that started years ago, but have found so many other uses for our Blendtecs. We even did an entire series last year around Super Bowl season with tons of recipes using our Blendtecs in shakes, soups, salad dressings, cauliflower rice, baby food, hummus, salsa, and my favorite, shredding roasted . . .
We have such a lovely giveaway and recipe for you today. We are giving away a GORGEOUS Arvo watch and we are sharing a decadent chocolate creme brûlée that is perfect for your special holiday dinner. Let me jab about this dessert for a bit - and then I'll get back to the giveaway. Creme Brûlée is my FAVORITE favorite favorite dessert. But I understand that there are some out there that really prefer a chocolate dessert. I have the perfect solution - chocolate creme brûlée. My husband . . .
Chocolate. Glitter. and Jewelry. Is there really anything better than those three things? No way. I have a serious admiration for Hello Apparel, and was so touched when they agreed to collaborate with us on this post. They are amazing....and I kinda want to be pregnant just so I can wear their I'M SO PREGNANT shirt. +their buffalo plaid sweat shirt is killin it.(heart eyes emoji x 100) WE LOVE Cheslea Charles' Count Me Healthy Bracelets. This is not the first time that we have worked with . . .
It's time to serve the best pie of the year. I'm on a toasted marshmallow kick, and for a good reason. It's a flavor that you really can't get anywhere else. It's insta-nostalgia, and who can argue with nostalgia? Give me burnt chicken with toasted marshmallow and I'll call it the dreamiest chicken I ever did have (mostly because I've shared burnt chicken over a campfire and washed down with some toasted 'mallow s'mores many a time--and that was only because my climbing and biking and . . .
Fall is here and so is pumpkin season! What is your favorite pumpkin recipe? I'm partial to pumpkin cake, but cookies are a close second. Today I have another recipe that is near and dear to my heart - pumpkin bread. Years ago I belonged to a crafting group and my dear friend gave me a loaf of this bread. I may or may not have eaten the entire loaf myself. I sheepishly asked for the recipe and she graciously agreed. There is nothing better than a moist quick bread in my . . .
If you are growing a garden that contains a zucchini plant you probably have zucchini coming out of your ears right now! I was just visiting my mom and she has so many growing and growing so dang fast! If we forget to check the garden for a day or two and pick the veggies then they end up mammoth size! When they're this large they aren't exactly the best for steaming up and eating fresh. They still have all kinds of uses so don't throw them away. Our favorite is to blend or grate them and . . .
I've posted several times about the book that basically changed our lives, Eat To Live. My husband read it, and long story short, I grudgingly followed in his footsteps and we made all sorts of changes to our diet. We added a couple of Netflix documentaries to our repertoire that really drove home the importance of what we put in our bodies, and the decline there has been in the things we put in our bodies. It's shocking, really, and we both felt extremely good making the change. Less . . .
