Turkey, Apple and Brie Bites

I am always excited to partner with quality food brands like Hillshire Farm. As always, even though this post was compensated, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I don’t think I’ve talked much about some of my recent changes in eating. I’ve cut out a lot bread and pasta items that I used to eat all the time. I still enjoy them from time to time but they don’t dominate my meals as much. Instead, I like to combine protein with fruits and vegetables whenever possible. It seems like I am always short on time so being able to have a few items on hand that I can grab on go is key. One of my newest favorite grab and go items are these turkey, apple and brie bites.

Only three ingredients to make a snack that is BIG on flavor. Yum!

TBT – Thai Butternut Squash Soup

Once October hits, I am a huge soup fan. I eat soup at least a few times a week between lunches and dinners. While I love broth based soups like vegetable quinoa soup and spicy sausage and tortellini soup, my absolute favorite to this day remainds Thai butternut squash soup. Back when I first shared the recipe for this soup, I definitely didn’t take pictures of it well enough to make you want to reach for a spoon and eat it. So, I thought I would try again and add it to our throw back thursday series.

Thai butternut squash soup is my favorite fall soup. It is creamy squash without the usual sweetness.

Margarita Chicken Rice Bowl

I am so excited to continue my work with Success® Rice by sharing this recipe with you that has become a family favorite of ours. As always, while I was compensated for this post, all opinions and thoughts are my own.

We are big Tex-Mex and Mexican food fans. From burritos to quesadillas, we love the flavors of lime, cilantro combined with a hint of spice. One of my favorite things to get when we go places like Chipotle is a rice bowl. I was at home one evening and really craving one so I decided to make my own version. This margarita chicken rice bowl is so easy to make and ridiculously delicious too. You may never go to Chipotle again because you’ve got something even better that you make at home!

This margarita chicken bowl is so delicious. It is like Chipotle made at home.

TWIX Parfait

A few months ago, I discovered TWIX bites when I made my three ingredient TWIX dip. They are absolutely amazing and we keep a bag of them around the house all the time. I was dreaming up more ways to use them the other day and came up with this delicious TWIX parfait. It is so easy to make and perfect for whipping up as a dessert for a party or dinner.  If you don’t have little parfait glasses, you can easily just toss it all in one big bowl for serving. 

A TWIX parfait is the easiest dessert to make and is guaranteed to disappear when served!

TBT – Pumpkin Macaroni and Cheese

So, you know when you make something that becomes a family favorite and you share it with a ton of people {say, on a blog} but the pictures just don’t do the dish justice?
