I know it's the middle of January and everyone is probably still in the midst of eating healthy and not indulging, as am I.  However, I couldn't resist sharing these amazing brownies so you can make them for the Super Bowl or for your Valentine! I made these for New Year's Eve and they were a hit at the party we went to! Several people went back for another and Adam and I enjoyed the … Read More

Spicy Stuffed Crescent Rolls

I'm so excited about the Super Bowl! I'm a huge Peyton Manning fan but I also like the Seahawks too...I had both Peyton & Seattle's defense on my fantasy team, so I will be excited with either winning.  The best part about the Super Bowl, to me, are the delicious appetizers!! I made these beef filled crescents for New Year's Day and we thoroughly enjoyed them! These are sometimes called … Read More

White Chocolate Cranberry Energy Bites

energy bites (7 of 7)

I've seen little energy bites all over the blogosphere. I thought I would put a different twist on them and do a white chocolate & cranberry version.  These were so good and so addictive! I kept myself to eating just two for a snack, but I can't wait to have more tomorrow! They are packed full of good things and are surprisingly filling! Such a great snack that you and your family will … Read More

Lighter Spinach & Artichoke Dip Chicken

spinach dip chicken  (1 of 7)

This dish is one you should stop everything you are doing, run to the grocery for the ingredients, & make it tonight! It was that incredible.  This is lightened up by using low fat cream cheese and greek yogurt instead of full fat ingredients, and you will never be able to tell! Plus you get in some veggies too. I just love lighter meals that taste indulgent. This one is definitely going … Read More

I am really trying to lose this baby weight. It's been hard because right now I'm the weight I was at my heaviest in college. I worked so hard to lose that weight and keep it off, now I feel as if I'm back at square one.  But I do have one thing I didn't have back then and that's knowledge. God has showed me the tools I need to lose weight & keep it off.  I know what works for me and what … Read More

Spinach Squares

Spinach Squares (1 of 2)

My mom made these for me one night when I was at her house for dinner and they were so delicious I asked her to make me a copy of the recipe right away.  These were so flavorful and cheesy! Such a fabulous side dish or you could even cut them into smaller squares and serve them as an appetizer.  I will definitely be making these again and again! They aren't exactly healthy but they do have … Read More
