Easy S’mores Donuts

I am so excited to share with you my newest donut flavor as a way to highlight delicious TruMoo’s Limited Edition Chocolate Marshmallow Milk. As always, even though this post may be sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I love donuts. There, I totally admitted it. No matter how much I love eating clean and enjoying all the real foods of Whole30, I still have a soft spot for a delicious donut. Of course, I am always trying to think of new donuts to try {as if Red Velvet, Eggnog and Peppermint Mocha weren’t enough}. This time, I am taking aim at one of my favorite childhood desserts and making s’mores donuts.

German Chocolate Bars

Pop Quiz: Did you know that there isn’t really much German about what we know as German chocolate? When Maya moved with us from Germany, I talked to her at length about all the things we think are “German” but really aren’t and German chocolate stuff was top of the list. I guess it doesn’t matter where the name originated because it is so darn delicious. I rarely have the patience to make a German chocolate cake and typically go for these German chocolate bars instead.

Thai Ginger Zucchini Soup

Ok, so you remember January when I was totally eating like a cave girl and doing Whole30? Well, a funny thing happens during Whole30 and you start doing “strange” things like eating soup for breakfast or eggs for dinner. I can’t tell you how many strange looks I got at 8am when I was warming up my Thai ginger zucchini soup in the office kitchen for breakfast. Not as strange as the guy with the turkey dinner waiting for the microwave but still some raised eyebrows. This soup is seriously so good though and, while most people would probably enjoy it for lunch or dinner, I some how really wanted it for breakfast a lot.

Fiery Turkey Bacon Grilled Cheese

There are days when you just crave comfort food. Gooey, cheesy and delicious comfort food like a grilled cheese sandwich. I love making grilled cheese sandwiches at home and playing around with the ingredients and types of cheese that go inside. After our party for the big game, I had some leftover candied cayenne bacon and knew it was going in a grilled cheese. That is how this turkey bacon grilled cheese came to be my favorite new lunch sandwich.

A Super Night for a Party!

I’m proud to partner with CVS/pharmacy as a Gold Emblem Super Bowl Party Host. I am being sponsored to help lead this campaign, but all opinions expressed are my own, and all product claims or program details shared should be verified at CVS.com or with the appropriate manufacturers.

Have you recovered from the aftermath of the BIG game? Between all of the talks about the plays, the commercials and, of course, the food, I think I have finally covered all the topics I wanted to discuss with friends about the big game. My favorite topic: the food. And, even though the party is over, there are plenty other games in other sports to come so I wanted to share my top 10 sports party foods based on what we had at my Super Bowl party.
