Homemade ice cream...hmm sounds good but too hard to make. Do you need extra equipment? Nope! Homemade ice cream can be made with just 2 ingredients! The best part is you can add any flavors to make your favorite frozen treat! The secret ingredients are milk and bananas!

For a while now I have been wanting to make healthy carrot cookies with just a few ingredients. After playing with the measurements and ingredients I came up with 5 ingredients [...]
Valentine's Day should be celebrated everyday instead of once a year. We should celebrate love everyday. Whether it's Valentine's Day or not. However, it is a cute holiday. I do like the candy and chocolate and the colors of pink and red! Very pretty. Valentine's Day is also another excuse to eat chocolate and other sweets. This year, instead of buying candy for the kids, I am making chocolate & fruit dessert. You get chocolate, but you also get the fruits! Valentine's Day Chocolate & Fruit Dessert!
My posts this week will be all about healthiness. Since the holidays are over, it is hard to stop those sweet cravings. I love making protein balls since they are filling and healthy. You never have to OVER indulge with these. My favorite are the Protein Granola Balls Dipped in Chocolate. To make it healthier, [...]
We all know how to make burgers, right? I am here to show you a healthier way to eat your burger. A cheeseburger wrapped in lettuce instead of adding a bun. A healthy no bun cheeseburger. Start off the year eating right but still keeping the foods you like. By omitting the bun you are saving 150 calories minimum on your meal. Adding the extra toppings and sauces add up. Why not omit the bun when it is already empty calories?
There are some people you never know what to get them. A few reasons are, they have everything, are picky or just don’t have hobbies. They just go to work and go home. This is where edible gifts win. The perfect gift idea for the pet lover. Make gingerbread cookies shaped like an animal! In my case, I made gingerbread cookies shaped like dogs and dog bones! If you don't like gingerbread cookies, make sugar cookies!
Who doesn't enjoy getting baked goods for the holidays? Everyone enjoys edible gifts. This year I plan on making MORE baked goods than usual. Instead of purchasing gifts for the adults on my list, I will be gifting sweets.. We, as adults, can purchase whatever we like and we may already have everything we want at this point. Here are the top Christmas food gift ideas to help you decide what to make for the special folks in your life!
Every Christmas I make Chocolate Peppermint Bark. I should say every December, as I make it a few times for my home and to gift! I enjoy making goodies that don't require much work since I am usually making large batches. My favorite Christmas goodie is BARK! It is super easy and no cooking required! You really can't mess this up unless you scare the chocolate during the double boiler method with water. If that's the case, melt your chocolate in the microwave.
