Bacon, Egg, and Gruyère Breakfast Sandwich

breakfast sandwich 018

This week has been lasting FOREVER. Does anyone else feel that way?  The time feels like it has just stopped on some days, and the only way to make it through the day is buy buying some Halloween candy at the grocery store. Yep, already have bought my first bag and I couldn't help myself. The store likes to do this sneaky thing where they have this display of fruits right by the deli check out and right next to the fruit is bags of Halloween candy. Yikes. I'll probably end up going through a … [Read more...]

Pumpkin Streusel Muffins with Maple Glaze

pumpkin streusel muffins 016

I had some leftover streusel topping from the apple crisp pizza that I made yesterday.  In fact, there's STILL streusel topping leftover. I'm thinking after these muffins, I might have to make an apple crisp. I attempted to make some pumpkin doughnuts with a box of cake mix, a can of pumpkin puree, and some water. They ended up being too soft and fell apart in the glaze. Ok, that didn't work,so muffins it is! Since the streusel topping was already made from yesterday's recipe, this was … [Read more...]

Cake Batter Oreo Fluff

cake batter oreo fluff 034

Today is a special day, because this post is my 1,000th for my blog! Since birthday cake goes really well with a celebration of any sort, I came up with this recipe for Birthday Cake Oreo Fluff.  Fluff recipes are really popular on this site. I remember way back when I first started,  I had made a recipe for Pumpkin Fluff.That recipe spread like wildfire on pinterest one day, and that is when I had my first 12,000 visitors in a day. All because of that single Pumpkin Fluff recipe. That was back i … [Read more...]

Fruity Exploding Sangria

Sangria and Soup 006

Let me first tell you a funny story when I was making this Sangria. I poured all the wine into the pitcher and then the fruit that I had juiced. After pouring the club soda into the juiced fruit and wine, the drink exploded. Literally exploded. It started foaming up and I had to quickly take the pitcher of Sangria to my sink to wait for all the fizziness to stop. Ben was laughing pretty hard, not at me, but at the Sangria. I had to quickly clean up the sangria mess on the floor, before we had … [Read more...]

Unfried Everything Pickles

Unfried Everything Pickles 010

This week is going by so fast! It feels like it was just Monday, when I was trying to make deep fried pickles at home. What a disaster that was! I was able to get one of the fried pickles to turn out. Deep fried pickles are so good, but I wanted something a bit healthier. Do you guys remember the cheese sticks I made? The ones where you rolled the cheese in egg roll wrappers and baked them in the oven until the cheese was melted and the egg roll wrappers were crispy? That is same method I … [Read more...]

Mango and Berry Layered Smoothie

Layered Smoothie 010

Today I went home early because I had a sore throat. I wanted something to help my throat out and something healthy to drink with some vitamins. I always tend to overeat whenever I have a sore throat, because eating food just makes the pain go away for me. Some people say to drink warm tea, but I don't like tea, neither coffee. You've probably had a regular smoothie but have you ever tried a layered smoothie? Oh you are missing out. It's two different smoothies combined into one. It will be … [Read more...]

Pulled Pork Pizza

This pulled pork pizza is exactly what I needed for that mid week pick me up! We still have pulled pork  leftover and I've been trying to use it up. Tonight I made this awesome pulled pork pizza. I just took a store bought pizza crust spread some barbeque sauce over that and some leftover pork. Then I topped it with some cheese, fresh pineapple, cilantro, and red onions. Yummo. Probably one of the better pizzas I've made in a long time. There's something about Pulled Pork and pineapples that … [Read more...]

Grapesicles

grapepops 019

I didn't add any sugar to these and they turned out great. All I did to make them was puree a bunch of grapes in the food processor and poured the liquid into popsicle molds. You COULD use already made grape juice, but that stuff is so full of sugar it woudldn't be healthy and these ice pops would be 0 points plus because all I did was use fruit! How sweet is that? Super easy and a really healthy summer treat! I've been wondering what you do when you take out all of the popsicles out of … [Read more...]
