These No-Bake Almond Joy Cookies are made with just 8 ingredients. They truly are the perfect sweet treat to enjoy on a hot summer day. Vegan and gluten-free. The other day, I had a serious craving for chocolate chip cookies. But it’s been so hot here lately, there was no way in hell I was about to turn on my oven to melt in my kitchen from the heat. So, instead of giving up on…

Did you know September is National Whole Grain Month? It is indeed, which is why I am so excited to work with General Mills on this blog post. Ninety-five percent of Americans don’t get enough whole grain in their diet, but with cereal from General Mills, it’s easy. Whole grain is the first ingredient in all of the General Mills Big G Cereals, which means there is more whole grain than any other ingredient, including sugar from all…

Well, peanut butter is a great choice as part of a nutritious, post-workout meal or snack. These No-Bake Peanut Butter Cereal Bars combine peanut butter with oats, Rice Chex cereal, and honey for a…

Good morning! Happy Friday! Apparently, I’m into no-bake recipes lately because here is another one! And since a lot of us are into pumpkin right now, I figured this recipe would likely be a winner this time of year. These bars remind me a lot of cheesecake, texture-wise, but without the “cheese” flavor. Instead, the flavor is a combo of pure pumpkin mixed with sweet vanilla. Guys, they’re so good.

So, these bars were a huge hit in our house. I made a batch of them on Thursday afternoon and, by Friday afternoon, they were long gone. Between Mal, Quinn, and me, we could not get enough of these bars. They’re definitely a new family favorite! And besides being incredibly tasty (if you like butterscotch, you will love these bars), they’re made with (mostly) wholesome ingredients and they’ll take you less than 10 minutes to prepare. Really. They’re insanely easy…

This post is sponsored by Blue Diamond Almonds. Good morning, friends! With the summer’s heat on full blast this week, the last thing I want to do is turn on my stove, but we all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so there’s no skipping it in our house, especially when eating a healthy one sets the tone for my entire day. That said, here are a bunch of nutritious, delicious, and, best of…

Hi, friends! What happened Wednesday? Let me tell you! Quinn woke up on the wrong side of the bed, so we took a walk around the block and tried to get our day started on the right foot. Truthfully, we never really got there, but I have a feeling he’s going through a growth spurt or some sort of developmental milestone. He napped a lot yesterday and when he was a wake, he was either…

I had a little fun in the kitchen yesterday afternoon and made some delicious No-Bake Vanilla Cake Batter Bars. I love that I didn’t even need to turn on my oven! Besides being a no-bake recipe, these bars only require four ingredients””thanks to Nikki’s Vanilla Cake Batter Coconut Butter. And making these bars is seriously a piece of cake: Just mix all of the ingredients together, spread in a pan, and refrigerate for about an hour….

Good morning!! I’ve really enjoyed writing these weekly recaps of what I have been eating lately. They’re a lot more exciting for me, and, hopefully, you too! With that said, here’s the next edition of My Eats Lately! Fruit, Squash, and Nut Butter Breakfast Bowl I’ve been combining pumpkin, butternut squash, or sweet potatoes with sliced banana, fresh berries, and a big scoop of nut butter. It’s the best breakfast””nutritious and satisfying. I love eating…

This dog”¦ I love him more than anything and, boy, does he make me happy. I honestly can’t imagine my life without him. I also can’t imagine him with any other name than “Murphy.” When Mal and I took Murphy to the dog park this past weekend, we met another Murphy there (an older Yellow Lab), which got us thinking about his name. We agreed that “Murphy” is the perfect name for our dog. It…
