Peppermint Oreo Truffles

Is that a Christmas dessert posted on November 15th? It’s not even Thanksgiving yet. I know I know. Two things…one, I’ve been listening to Christmas music since early October. Yep, I’m one of “those” people. What can I say, it’s happy music and I’ve had a love for Christmas for as long as I can remember. You should have seen my Continue reading

Roasted Butternut Squash and Cranberries

If you’re looking for a perfect side to compliment the main course of your Thanksgiving dinner, consider making this roasted butternut squash and cranberries dish. Squash is seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic powder, cranberries burst with flavor from roasting and it’s all topped with Continue reading

Reese Cup Bats

Since we covered the healthy treat on Halloween with jack o’ lantern oranges, we splurged a bit with these far from spooky yet totally adorable Reese cup bats! Stumbling upon this idea on Pinterest worked out wonderfully, because I recently had a coupon for a free pack of Oreo thins and Continue reading

Healthy Halloween Treat

Happy Halloween, friends! With the amount of Trick or Treat candy Hailey brought with her this weekend, I wanted at least one treat we made to be healthy! These oranges turned jack o’ lanterns were the perfect festive snack and proof that enjoying the holidays doesn’t always mean over indulging! Most of our ‘jack o’ lanterns’ were filled with Continue reading

Chicken Pot Pie Soup

This chicken pot pie soup recipe is quite similar to the chicken pot pie crumble I posted last December. If you’re like me and not a big fan of crust (anyone? no?) then you’ll likely replace the crumble with the soup 🙂 I made this soup a couple weeks ago, but I sure could go for a cup right now; I’m writing this post as Continue reading

Apple Cranberry Walnut Salad

It’s been a minute or five since I’ve posted. Just over a week ago was my second wedding anniversary and my husband and I celebrated in the enjoyable city of Cincinnati. Needless to say, blogging was set aside as we took the time to create memories to hold on to for a lifetime. I hope to add a post about it though I didn’t take many photos…a good sign really when evaluating the focus of the weekend 🙂 So what better way to jump back to blogging than with a refreshing salad recipe for everyone! Salads are a great summertime dish, but for fellow salad lovers like me we want them year round! Rather than making my usual side Continue reading

Turkey, Bean and Spinach Soup

Yesterday was a day best spent inside, cozy and warm; it definitely felt like Fall with gloomy skies and wind that was quite chilly! Since we live in Ohio though, today is the exact opposite and it almost feels like Summer again (which I’m okay with as you can guess)! Yesterday was a definite soup making kind of day and Continue reading

Banana Walnut Slow Cooker Oatmeal

If you’re not a big oatmeal fan, you may still want to give this recipe a try simply for the heavenly aroma it will fill your kitchen with as it cooks. The spices really take over and smell magnificent! Oven baked and crockpot cooked meals are my favorite this time of year, because of the warmth and comfort they add to our home! I hadn’t thought about making breakfast in the crockpot (probably because I don’t always put much thought into breakfast in general – guilty) until I stumbled upon this intriguing recipe on Pinterest! Banana Walnut oatmeal in the crock pot can be put together in a pinch and  Continue reading

Homemade Applesauce

It’s officially Fall! If you read my last post, you know I’m not terribly excited about this change in seasons; however, Fall does have its own set of perks. One perk is our annual trip to a great local orchard for apple picking! Last year was our first apple picking adventure and despite the cold and windy weather that day, we quickly decided to Continue reading
