Cheesy Sausage Crescent Ring

This post is sponsored by VELVEETA® . All opinions are my own.

During spring and summer, we tend to get together with friends for weekend brunch a lot. Heading outside during the nice morning weather for a meal together is one of our favorite ways to reconnect and just have some relaxation time in the midst of the hustle and bustle of shuttling kids to activities and taking ourselves back and forth to work. I like to make my recipes for brunch easy so that I don’t spend a ton of time in the kitchen. A recent favorite, a cheesy sausage crescent ring, has only a few ingredients and is so easy to make.

Roasted Tomato Goat Cheese Pesto Pizza

I love goat cheese. You may remember a little strawberry goat cheese creation I shared recently and I have to tell you that appears on our table weekly now that strawberries are in abundance at the farmer’s market. Know what else goes amazing with goat cheese? Roasted tomatoes…especially when you use it to create a roasted tomato goat cheese pesto pizza.

This paleo chicken salad is to die for and is so perfect for Spring and Summer lunches.

Spicy Italian Macaroni and Cheese

I am excited to partner with DairyPure milk to bring you this new recipe. While this post was sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

We love mac & cheese in our house. I don’t get to make it from scratch as often as I like but I try to make a big batch and then freeze it for later use at least once per month. Since we eat it a lot, I like to try and change it up from time to time and go beyond a basic macaroni and cheese. Recently, I wanted to make some that was geared a little more to the adults in our house and created spicy Italian macaroni and cheese.

Paleo Avocado Toast

You guys…it is Paleo Monday! For me that it is totally a thing as I reset after my free eating weekends and get back on track for my week of paleo eats. Today, I am sharing with you one of my current snack obsessions. This paleo avocado toast is so amazingly good that you are going to want to devour it even if you aren’t following the paleo guidelines for food. So, maybe we should just call this the best snack…ever.

Salted Pretzel Ice Cream Bites

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Safeway, Inc.. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you love ice cream? Who doesn’t, right?! I am a huge ice cream fan and haven’t really met many flavors that I don’t like. Anything with peanut butter in it is a winner for sure. I was trying to decide on a fun ice cream treat to make with my daughter and stumbled upon some Edy’s® Peanut Butter Cup Frozen Custard. Now, I could have eaten it alone but we decided it would be fun to use some salted pretzel snack bars to make salted pretzel ice cream bites.

Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites with Dip

We love pretzels here so it was a no brainer to work with Simply Homemade® for this pretzel post. As always, while I may have received compensation for this post, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I don’t remember at what age I started really getting interested in cooking and food. I think it was probably late teens or early twenties. It definitely wasn’t seven. Right now, my daughter is always asking to do things in the kitchen and I love it. It gives her and I a chance to spend some time together {since I am always in the kitchen} and also teaches her some important life skills pretty early on. Recently, we got a chance to make pretzels and we made a variety including cinnamon sugar pretzel bites with a yummy dip.
