Parmesan Bunny Crackers

I have seen around Pinterest, where bloggers are making homemade goldfish. Which I think is super cute!  My kiddos actually prefer the parmesan or plain flavored crackers.  And we actually usually eat bunnies in our house, not goldfish. I LOVE to include bunny crackers in with my kids easter baskets.  They’re healthy […]

 

Healthy Grocery Store Frappuccino

If you are a frequent reader of this blog, then you know I love coffee.  I used to put all sorts of unhealthy things in my coffee, but I don’t anymore.  I have weaned myself off those fake coffee creamers, and have even stopped adding honey or maple syrup to my coffee. […]

 

Three Ingredient Lemon Nice Cream

Happy New Year! Am I the only one Freaking out just a little that it’s 2015?  Seriously, time is going by too fast, and I hate it!  For New Years, my family and I went to a get-together with our college friends, and now we have been friends with most of these […]

 

DIY Handi-Snacks

Did you have a favorite snack when you were a kid? I always loved Handi-snacks.  Scooping up the cheese with that little red plastic spreader.  Or Dipping the Pretzels in the cheese.  They were always so good.  My parents never bought pre packaged snacks like Handi-snacks. I think my parents […]

Sriracha Deviled Eggs

I am back from the Ultimate Foodie Chicago Weekend. My husband and I went to Chicago for a long weekend ( left the kiddos with my in laws).  We hit up some of the major foodie hot spots in the west loop.  ( Blackbird, and Sephia). We also went to […]

 

Caramel Green Apple Chips

I realize that it’s still August and super hot.  But I keep seeing Halloween costumes displayed in stores and the kids in my town have been back in school for almost a week.  That is CRAZY! In addition to pumpkin everything, crunchy leaves, cooler weather and football,  I am also looking […]

 

Healthy Onion Dip

Lately, I have been eating A LOT of Greek Yogurt.  I will admit, that I was not convinced I would like Greek Yogurt for a while.  But, it’s growing on me.   I have been using it in recipes that call for mayo or sour cream.  Most of these substitutions have turned out […]

 

Peanut Butter Hummus

I am always trying to come up with new and fun recipes.  It’s kind of funny that I am posting a hummus recipe on this blog because hummus was Ten Years Ago!  I discovered Hummus when I went to cross-country camp as a high school student ( summer of 2000). […]
