Valentine’s Day Pop-Tarts

I absolutely love Valentine’s Day. But not for the “romance” of it. I have never been one to enjoy the excuse to go on a date or to tell a SO how much I care. No. The reason I love it is the hearts. And pink. And chocolate. And glitter. Everywhere! Can we just talk about how…

Egg-tastic

I hated eggs. Hated them. My dad would make scrambled eggs every morning for my sister and I would dramatically run out the kitchen with my hand clutching my nose shut.

Not Over the Pumpkin Craze?

Sink your teeth into these moist pumpkin bars. Plus! There’s a secret ribbon of chocolate cream cheese inside! So go ahead, have one, two, or ten. Okay- confession time. I normally do not like pumpkin. I have never been one of those girls to clamor over the PSL latte’s at Starbucks. Just not a huge…

Quick Chicken Sausage Sauté

Okay I have a new addiction… chicken sausages. You can purchase them from Trader Joe’s in all types of different styles (I got the chicken fontina) OR if you have a magical Costco card you can get 4 packs of chicken sausages for a total of $12. Each package comes with 6 links. So we…
