New Years Eve 2015 + Chocolate Fondue Recipe

As you can see by my post about New Years Eve on January 11th 14th, I’m really ahead of the game this year and quickly striving towards big success when it comes to resolutions like writing more. I actually don’t make resolutions, phew! I do however hope most of my readers share the sarcasm sense of humor I simply can’t deny myself! So it’s 2016 and again we’re asking the question “where has time gone?” I’ve come to realize this Continue reading

Gingersnap Cookies

Well, it’s that time of year again! You know, the holiday season that seems to come around faster and faster each year. My Grandma, Mom and I had our annual cookie baking day earlier this week. I just love our tradition; I’ve talked about it once before in my cut out cookies post. I would love to tell you ‘what’ annual cookie baking day occurred this year, but fortunately we’ve been doing it for so long now I’ve lost count! This year was a bit extra special, because my Grandpa spent the day with us too. He was a superb supervisor and photographer! We made four types of cookies to add to the Continue reading

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

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

Pretzel Flowers

Do the years really go faster as you get older, because I’m starting to believe that common phrase is actually quite factual. Summer break is coming to an end and Hailey is about to start 7th grade! Like I said, time if flying! I recently came across the most adorable flowers on Pinterest, you know ones made of pretzels and M&Ms, and thought “I knew there was a reason I still had an unopened bag of these chocolate candies from Easter”! I’m glad I did as it was the perfect little treat to make with Hailey before she went back to school! Not only are these Continue reading

Peanut Butter Banana Bites

I love making cute snacks for Hailey, because she gets so excited over the little added touches that make her food fun! For example, when she came in the kitchen and saw these today she said “oh my gosh, these look awesome! Thank you so much Sara!” Very minimal effort to create a cute and healthy snack that makes her smile? I’m a fan! Continue reading

Easter Egg Nest with Rice Krispies

As with all major holidays, I wanted to make a fun Easter treat for Hailey and the family! I came across plenty of ideas of ‘nests’ and this one was my favorite, so simple and cute! You just need butter, marshmallows, peanut butter, rice krispies and some candy coated chocolate eggs! They take minutes to make and are perfectly Continue reading
