Green Apple & Cranberry Muffins

Hopefully everyone had a fantastic New Years and the resolutions are sticking so far! I am currently on a green apple kick if you couldn’t tell! I have never liked green apples and I am trying to make myself like them. I am more of a Fuji apple type since it’s not so tart! I…

Green Apple Arugula Salad

Happy New Year’s Eve!! I am going to start adding as many healthy recipes as possible! I always try to start the new year with my health in mind but I always succumb to a large supreme pizza! I have a hard time saying no to pizza. Since I love my junk food, I have…

Marshmallows

Have you ever made your own marshmallows? They are fairly easy to make and are so silky smooth. I personally think they are so much better than store bought marshmallows! It does take some time to make them, mostly waiting time but it is well worth the wait. The best part about making your own…

Cheesy Mac and Cheese

My husband could live off of mac and cheese. He always asks me if we are having mac and cheese for dinner and who can blame him! If you love cheese and noodles well this recipe is for you! You can add so much to mac and cheese from bacon to green onions, chicken to…

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies

These cookies are a Christmas staple in my opinion. I am not a huge fan of macadamia nuts unless they are covered with chocolate or in these cookies. I usually like to chop these nuts pretty fine so they are fully dispersed throughout the cookie, I feel like it makes the cookie so much better….

Chicken and Mushrooms

Mushrooms are my go to side dish for a lot of meals I cook. My husband loves mushrooms in any capacity and always adds mushrooms to any meal he cooks for me. Mushrooms are low in fat, calories and are cholesterol free, super high in fiber and have over a dozen minerals and vitamins! They…

Pecan Puffs

This recipe is a staple in my house during the holidays. My mother made these cookies every year for my sisters and me. It’s a cookie that reminds me of home when I cannot make it back for the holidays. This year will be the first year I am not going home for Christmas and…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites

My husband’s favorite sweet treat of all time are peanut butter cups. It is the perfect combination in my opinion, sweet and a little bit salty. Since the holidays are upon us, I figured that I would make this little sweet treat and make it a little bit festive with my snowflake molds! I don’t…
