The result is a very moist chocolate cake/brownie that has no flour but high in protein. My daughter loves it with ice cream and cool whip topping!

Holidays!

It’s a cold and snowy January day….perfect for sharing a few holiday recipes! Last month we enjoyed a fun evening with our Auto Zone family at the company Christmas party. We always look forward to this celebration each year! It’s a great time to catch up, relax and just spend a few hours together during the busy holiday season. Due to Adam’s job change, we didn’t host the party this year like normal but we were happy to be invited!

Meat and cheese boards are so fun to put together! Be creative and make it appealing! The basics include meat and cheese, pickles, olives, crackers, dried fruit, garnishes and nuts. It can be as simple or as elaborate as you want. Just make sure to use different shapes, sizes and textures on the tray. Another idea is to use sweet and salty items for a completely different type of board.

Speaking of sweet items… we can’t forget desserts! These white chocolate peanut butter balls from Taste of Home are always a favorite each year! They are so simple and quick to mix up.

The recipe can be easily doubled or tripled depending on the amount you need to serve. https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/peanut-butter-snowballs

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

This is a great holiday cookie recipe from Taste of Home! My friend hosted a Christmas ornament and painting party recently. She’s so creative and generous….lots of crafts, prizes, a hot chocolate bar and yummy treats filled the room!

I was searching for something special to take to the party when I ran across these ginger cookies.

Easy to make ✔️ Delicious ✔️ Soft ✔️

Meal prep Monday

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.

Apple Pie Caramel Apples!

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!
