I love to meal prep and have so many healthy things ready to go in the fridge. Of course it’s a chore and time consuming but it’s well worth it! Last night and this morning I have been washing and slicing fresh veggies, fresh fruits and berries, boiling eggs, making pasta salad, starting side dishes for dinner and making chocolate peanut butter fat bombs. I’m not jumping on the keto (high fat/low carb) bandwagon but I do love these little treats! You can be very creative and try different combinations. They are high in calories so again, they are meant to be a little treat once in awhile or when cravings strike. It’s a great way to get in your healthy fats and satisfy that sweet tooth!
Store in freezer. Keeps for several weeks in a freezer bag or tight sealed container.
If you have been to Disney World, I’m sure you have seen this awesome treat several times at the theme parks.
At the parks, you can easily spend $8-10 for one delicious apple. If you are really craving this vacation treat, you can order it online for $17.95 each. Or, you can make a batch of these yourself at home for a fraction of the price!
Allow plenty of time to make this special treat. I started them early on the July 4th holiday and we enjoyed them later that evening for dessert.
Bring the magic of Disney (and the memories) right to your kitchen!
I have several new, healthy and delicious recipe ideas to share….but first, let me tell you about this awesome dessert! It’s all about balance right? 😉
I decided to make this for my valentines last week and we all loved it! I tried the strawberry version once before and it’s also really good but this orange one is even better! Plan ahead, each layer must set up for awhile, start early to have it ready to go by dinner dessert time!
There’s nothing more special than sitting around the dessert table with your valentines 💗💗
Over the next few weeks, I hope to share several holiday recipes that we tried this year! The first three are yummy desserts and snacks. They are not new ideas but they are great recipes worth saving.
These little red velvet cake balls are rolled in white chocolate and then drizzled with dark chocolate! Just make sure to allow plenty of time to chill before dipping or they will fall apart. These are easy to make and perfect to make ahead and keep in fridge.
I hesitated to make these because I knew the ingredients would be a little expensive. Fortunately, it makes SO much that I kept them in the fridge and served them at 2 parties. I had 5 rotating cookie sheets full while making this recipe! It was easy, quick and fun to make these in the crock pot. It seemed so strange and I couldn’t wait to try it! You just layer the ingredients, do not stir and let it slow cook/melt together for a short time. Store in fridge when done and then set out a couple hours before serving. This TOH recipe could easily be divided in half and it will still make so much.
These peanut butter balls are just amazing! It is definitely a new holiday favorite! Double the recipe though because it really doesn’t make 24 unless they are very tiny.
I’m filing these recipes under Holidays so it will be easy to find in the future.
This is my go to recipe for pb fudge. My worn out copy is dated 2010 and I’m pretty sure I’ve never used another recipe since I found this one! It’s easy to make, delicious and it never fails! It always sets up just perfectly and is so creamy. This is also a great make ahead dessert. I have made it a couple days in advance, store it in the fridge and then just pull it out when needed. It’s perfect for cookie trays and parties because one batch makes so much!
Many people are starting to plan Christmas parties and cookie exchanges! If you need a new recipe idea, here is a great one from the Pioneer Woman! Lacey says it is heaven on a pan! 😊
I bought this magazine back in August to take camping with me while at the county fair for a week. It was a fun but full week and the magazine just laid on the camper table until I packed to come back home. While camping; Adam was recovering from surgery, I was nursing my sick little dog, 4H parade, fair activities and events, friends and family stopping by, Adam’s birthday, 2 doctor appointments and helping Lacey take care of her horse…no time to sit and read magazines. But lately I have tried 2 recipes so far in this book. I’m a big fan of Taste of Home and that’s sorta why I was so disappointed with the sweet bread. I can usually count on their recipes being accurate and delicious!
Wasted ingredients and wasted time on this one….
I planned to have it for breakfast for a couple days with some fruit and freeze the second loaf for later. It was so dry and had a very strange flavor. And, I’m still not sure why it would have 8 oz cheddar cheese in it. Both loaves went in the trash, so disappointing!
On to the good news….I finally made a great pumpkin roll using the recipe in this book! There are so many recipes for this dessert but this one works, is super yummy and it’s a keeper! I had one little pie pumpkin left and decided to make this dessert.
I only remember trying to make this recipe one other time years ago and it turned out bad. I couldn’t get it rolled up and it was just a big mess. It wasn’t fun and I never tried again, until now! Plan ahead, it takes awhile to make and it still isn’t that fun in my opinion but it is delicious! I love to bake but for some reason this recipe isn’t enjoyable….but the results are worth it!
