S’mores Popcorn Mix

S’mores Popcorn Mix – the name says it all. Without a doubt, summer’s most addicting snack!

S'mores Popcorn Mix

Welcome to Friday! Do you have any fun plans this weekend? I recently decided to paint ALL the trim around our new house. Living in a mostly white house has been my dream for what seems like forever now. While I absolutely love the way things are coming along, I didn’t think it would take as long as it is. I am not complaining though – the more progress I make, the more I fall head over heels for the way our house now feels and looks. I might even start sharing our tiny house makeover. Are you guys interested?

S'mores Popcorn Mix

Since it’s taking me a while to repaint, I don’t like to waist time by taking any kind of a break, even when it comes to food. I know! So quick snacks and on the go meals are my jam. Which is exactly where this popcorn mix comes in. I’ve been snacking on regular popcorn while painting, but I finally grew tired of it and knew I needed to step things up. Inspired by summer and one of the best flavors of life, s’mores, I knew just what to do. [Read more…]

Getting creative in the kitchen and coming up with fun no-bake treats, especially this time of year, makes me feel like a kid again. The only difference being that I am in full control of my ingredients and I don’t have my mom limiting me on how many treats I’m allowed. Being an adult can be fun, ha.

Today’s recipe is the result of me being home alone for less than 24 hours. Adam recently had to travel for business, which meant that I had to spend an entire night on my own, entertaining our cats and trying to figure out how to cook a meal for one.

I really don’t do well on my own. Given the fact that I’ve never had to live by myself and am so used to constant company, being in the company of one (even if it’s just for 24 hours), is the worst. I can’t stand silence and need to talk to someone. But since I had to cope with loneliness for one night, I decided to get caught up on my favorite youtubers and whip up a sweet treat – no big surprise here. After all, I am most comfortable and comforted in the kitchen working on something delicious! [Read more…]

I hope you’re in the mood for some peanut buttery goodness today. Because the granola bars you see here are all about putting the spotlight on that dreamy little nut. There are peanut butter chips, whole peanuts and loads of creamy peanut butter hiding in them. Plus, they’re dipped and drizzled with even more peanut butter. If you are not the biggest pb fan, I am truly sorry. I’ll make it up to you soon!

Healthy Energy Balls that taste anything but. Every Chocolate and Peanut Butter lover should save this recipe.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Balls

Healthy snacks are pretty much an essential in our home. Adam and I have always eaten smaller meals throughout the day with a couple of snacks here and there. Not only do I like to make my own snacks, but I’ve really been concentrating on making healthy yet satisfying ones over the last couple of months. We’re still getting settled into our new home and have just a few projects (that require quite a bit of muscle work) left. So I decided to stock up our “good for you” options that’ll provide us with plenty of energy.

And when I stumbled upon this new to me recipe, I knew instantly that I had to share it with all of you. This one’s simply too good not to.

Ya’ll know by now that I love a great bite, truffle, ball or whatever you want to call ’em. I don’t discriminate between healthy and indulgent, but when both of them come together, I can’t resist. And I bet you can’t either once you give them a go! [Read more…]

Perfect Chocolate Pudding

Homemade Chocolate Pudding is one of the best comfort foods. Here’s how you can make your own in just a few minutes!

I know it’s summer and all, which means we’re all craving refreshing drinks, lighter meals, and love to use the grill as much as possible. Am I right? But no matter what season we’re in, I still find myself wanting comfort food every now and again. Chocolate pudding definitely qualifies as comfort food for me. Just the thought of it brings back so many memories of my childhood and stirs up just as many happy feelings. I really don’t make it often enough.

It turns out that having chocolate pudding on an 80 degree day on your back porch is actually quite perfect. Chilled pudding with a super smooth and creamy texture is now one of my favorite summer treats. I had no idea how much I’d enjoy a treat I usually only make come fall or winter. Better late than never.

Plus, nothing beats Chocolate Pudding made from scratch. [Read more…]
