Peanut Butter Nutella Rice Krispie Treats

I am thrilled to partner with Orajel™ Kids to share my thoughts on childhood tooth health. As always, while this post was sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I have a GIANT sweet tooth. Like I think my whole mouth is nothing but sweet teeth because I crave sweets all the time. My children, especially my daughter, definitely inherited my loves of sweets. Now that she also loves to be in the kitchen, we do make a lot of treats together. Right now, her favorite is rice krispie treats but, of course, I had to change them up a bit so we made peanut butter nutella rice krispie treats in addition the regular ones.

Hidden Vegetable Chocolate Smoothie

I am excited to partner with TruMoo to bring you this recipe. As always, even though this post was sponsored, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

I have a family who struggles to eat vegetables. My son will eat 3 avocados a day if given the opportunity but won’t touch a piece of broccoli or any type of squash. Although he tries to set a good example, Mathlete isn’t much better when it comes to eating his vegetables. So, I try to sneak them in by making things like a hidden vegetable chocolate smoothie.

Happy Memorial Day! We are getting ready to celebrate with a get together with a bunch of close friends. We’re hosting and taking care of the burgers, hot dogs and drinks. I wanted an easy cocktail that I could make on a larger scale for the group. We were picking up Cokes for the party so I decided to make a three ingredient Sangria, called Rioja Libre, for the adults to enjoy.

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.

Guess what day it is?! It is Paleo Monday. I am so excited to share with you one of my absolute favorite new recipes this week. I’ve been searching for a way to replace the chicken salad that I loved for lunch each and every day before going Paleo {er-ish}. Well, I think I finally done it. 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.
