Must Try: Hapi Wasabi Peas

One of my first jobs was working as a cashier at a local grocery store.  I know a lot of us have went down this path.  I didn’t look at food then as I do now.  But, what I do remember doing is sifting through this one particular snack mix bin.  I don’t see those…

Time to get started on the grocery list…

It’s been one of those days folks.  We attended an amazing rock concert last night….Hinder, Saving Abel, My Darkest Days, and Kopek.  All of which really rocked the house!  In turn, I didn’t get in until around 12:30am.  All worth it though, until….5:30am rolled around.  I knew I had a long day ahead of me. …

World Nutella Day – February 5, 2011 I can’t wait!!!  I decided yesterday to do a World Nutella Day Party to celebrate the wonders and versatility of my friend, Nutella.  The ideas are flooding into my head, to the point I feel it’s going to explode with Nutella goodness overload!  So, this is just to…

Nutella Heaven!

I can’t believe I haven’t posted this recipe up yet!!!  Thank goodness I had a picture of it, because my caloric intake for the day would be through the roof with this addition to the menu today. No kidding, hands down, one of my new favorite “messy” snacks/desserts.  One of the best oh-so-gooey, sticky, crunchy, buttery, lick-your-fingers,…

The perfect 75 calorie snack!

On our trip to Ikea today, I picked Mom up some of these crackers she loves.  I also decided to pick myself up some.  They are each 40 calories a pop, not bad. At home, patiently awaiting my return home, I had a new flavor of Laughing Cow Cheese.  Queso Fresco and Chipotle to be…

Featuring: Beaux’s Ultimate Tuna Salad

I am really enjoying doing this site (as many of you clearly know this).  I’m enjoying the connections I am forming with new people who read my blog, as well as finding new blogs to read myself.  I stumbled across this one blog.  You’ve heard me mention it here before… Holy Poached Egg.  The guy that…

Darlin’ Dumplin’

Sounds like a mushy love name from the South doesn’t it?  So sweet and precious sounding.  We do have some funny love names for our loved ones around here.  Muffin (not muffin top, because that would be bad), Sweet Pea, Sugar Lips, Dimples, Suga’, Darlin’, Dear, Dumplin’, etc.  The list could go on and on. …

Care for some juice?

No, this isn’t about juices.  Although, I adore a fresh apple juice.  Ok, wait, maybe it is slightly.  The recipe does contain orange juice.  I carried these delectable treats to work, and they absolutely loved them.  Just like those darn Oreo Truffles previously mentioned, they have a minimal ingredient list, but so much easier to make! …

Brings a smile to my face…

If you know me, you know there is a polite southern charm smile on my face at most times.  (You may also know that my red tends to come out…redhead, not redneck…but, that’s not what I am writing about.)  I received the alert about a new post being added to the Post A Day Challenge…

Dippity Do Da, Dippity Dips…

I’m sure we are all familiar with Flo, the Progressive Insurance spokes character.  She strikes me as a simple gal.  One that enjoys the fun things in life.  One that isn’t afraid to smile and be blissful.  She also strikes me as a dip lover.  Those simple yet elegant dips that we can all make…

Cheesy Crescenty Goodness…

Crescent wheels, enough said.  These have become one of my favorite things to make when having guests over.  Or, I will roll the dough out and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon for a quick weekend breakfast.  I just buy a tube of crescent rolls or buy a sheet of crescent dough and pile whatever I want…
