Crunchy White Chocolate and Toffee Clusters

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…]

Dipped Peanut Granola Bars

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!

Strawberry ‘n Pineapple Lava Flow

Making smoothies in style à la Lava Flow. This strawberry and pineapple concoction is the best thing to enjoy on a HOT summer day.

Strawberry 'n Pineapple Lava Flow

Oh, how I love a good smoothie. When we find ourselves in the midst of summer (or just about) all I want is a fabulous smoothie and homemade sweet tea. If one could live on those two alone, I absolutely would. Years ago I made up my own sweet tea recipe and now I make several pitchers every week. I wouldn’t change a thing and can confidently say that it’s my favorite drink of all time. Smoothies, on the other hand, are a different story.

Strawberry 'n Pineapple Lava Flow

Smoothies are fair game. I like to switch things up, discover new combinations, and simply like to clear out my fridge and see what I can come up with. Most of my experiments are pretty tasty and ultra slurp-worthy.

When I spotted a can of sweetened condensed milk in my pantry one sunny morning, I was feeling naughty. Because that’s what it feels like when you drizzle that luscious milk into a super healthy smoothie. The best kind of naughty.

You NEED to give it a go. [Read more…]

Peaches and Mango Breakfast Bars

Breakfast Bars that are packed with nutrition and good-for-you ingredients. Plus, they taste amazing and are super family-friendly.

Peaches and Mango Breakfast Bars

You know you’ve had a good week when two posts in a row involve a lovely glaze. A simple sweet glaze is the best way to finish off a rather indulgent dessert (see Wednesday’s post) or to dress up a healthy breakfast bar. Not that you absolutely need to add the glaze… unless you’re anything like me, in which case a glaze becomes a necessity. Sugar is life.

Speaking of which. In today’s recipe you’ll find only natural sugars (minus the glaze), but you would never know hadn’t I told you. If these bars aren’t prove that healthy food is utterly delicious and just as satisfying as other alternatives, then I don’t know what is.

Peaches and Mango Breakfast Bars

Gone are the days of a bowl of cereal or peanut butter toast for breakfast. Once you enjoy a Peaches and Mango Breakfast Bar it will be hard to go back to your old staples. The feeling of having dessert for breakfast is an absolute thrill. It sets me up for a fabulous start to my day every time.

Let’s make breakfast the best meal of your day too. [Read more…]

Raspberry Cobbler Pizza

Raspberry Cobbler in Dessert Pizza form. One of the very best ways to enjoy pizza!

Raspberry Cobbler Pizza

No pizza night is complete without dessert. I am usually not picky when it comes to satisfying my sweet tooth. Since I pretty much love any and everything, most treats are usually more than acceptable. But there are a few that get me a little more excited than others. Ooey gooey brownies, freshly baked cookies and yup, you guessed it, dessert pizza. Because the only thing that’s better than having pizza for dinner is having pizza for dessert as well. High five, fellow pizza lover!

Raspberry Cobbler Pizza

Dessert pizza is such a quick, delicious and super versatile sweet treat to whip up. In honor of our first 90+ degree day yesterday, I decided to celebrate with one of summer’s best berries – raspberries. Putting a raspberry cobbler spin on our dessert favorite. Since I also happen to be a huge fan of cobblers, I knew that combining two killer desserts into one couldn’t be anything but ah-mazing! [Read more…]
