Peanut Butter Apple Nachos

peanutbutter apple nachos 006

This is my favorite new way to eat apples and it will be your favorite too! Melt some peanut butter in the microwave. I melted about a tablespoon of peanut butter in the microwave for about a minute. The peanut butter becomes melted and is now drizzleable. Is that even a word? Drizzleable?  Use a mandoline to thinly  slice the apples. You can use a knife, but it would be a lot harder to get them all the right size. In another bowl, melt some semi sweet chocolate chips and drizzle that over th ...

Easy 3 Ingredient Microwave Fudge Bites

The Easiest 3-Ingredient Fudge Bites 024

Guess what?! My oven is not working anymore. I forget what day it was last week, where I was cooking some bacon in my cast iron skillet, and my burner wouldn't shut off. The only way to turn it off was to completely unplug the machine. On Saturday, I wanted some eggs and tried it again. Nope. The burner that wasn't shutting off before came right back on right away after the oven had been unplugged for a couple of days. I have an electric oven. I'm not one of those lucky people that get a gas ...

Monster Eyeball Oreo Truffles

Eyeball Oreo truffles 017

  Halloween is by far my most favorite Holiday. I love decorating. Every year, I tell myself that I need more Halloween decorations. I don't ever buy any full price though. The day after Halloween is the best time to get decorations, because they're %50 off at Spirit Halloween or just about any place where you can get decorations. I try to make my outside of the house look creepy with Grim Reepers, graveyards, and skeletons everywhere. Inside, I like to find candles, table decor, you name it. ...

Red, White, and Blue Rosemary and Parmesan Potatoes

red white and blue potatoes 001

Need a last minute side dish for this weekend? Look no more! These red, white, and blue potatoes are perfect for a colorful and festive Summer side dish for the 4th of July.  My favorite color happens to be purple and potatoes are one of my favorite vegetables. My first instinct was to take the bag right away. Usually, when I'm shopping at a clothing store, I will only take things that say "Take me, Take me" in the back of my mind because I love it so much. I guess you could say the same rule ...

Skinny Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars

skinny cheesecake bars 003

Have you guys noticed the price of eggs lately? I couldn't believe my eyes when I went to the grocery store and saw what the price was for a large container of eggs. Almost $5.00! It has to do with a group of chickens having to die off lately because they had some kind of disease. That is sad. It seems like a lot of different animals are dying off lately, like the honeybees for example. They're also having problems. I haven't had to buy a container of honey yet, but I'm sure that price will sky ...

Tropical Quinoa Fruit Salad

tropical quinoa fruit salad 024

This Tropical Quinoa Fruit Salad screams Summer and it's packed with kiwi, mango, pineapple, and toasted coconut. The dressing I chose for this salad is a honey lime dressing and I was debating on using poppy seed dressing. Poppy seed dressing is one of my favorites and goes on everything but this honey lime dressing is perfect. The dressing has 2 tablespoons of honey, the zest of 1 lime, and the juice of one lime. That it is. This tropical quinoa fruit salad will be on your dinner table in no ...

Weight Watcher’s Frozen Grasshopper Pie

this pisses me off 2839

St Patrick's Day is only good for one thing and that is MINT. Mint and chocolate are meant to be together. At least I know that much is true. This is a no bake pie. It starts off with instant pistachio pudding. That sounds really weird for a mint dessert doesn't it? It works though, so trust me on this one. Next,  fold in some cool whip and mint extract and then poor it over a pie crust. Pop the pie in the freezer and wait for a couple hours for the pie to set. This pie takes no time to ...
