Kids’ No Sugar Added Slushies + Win $100 Walmart Gift Card

Summer is fast approaching and we love cold drinks, juice, and slushies. Today I took my kids’ favorite new juice–Mott’s® Apple Cherry Juice–and blended it with some ice.

Homemade Rice Krispie Treats That Actually Taste Like Original Rice Krispie Treats

I’ve always loved the Original Rice Krispie Treat Bars. They taste amazing—but quite different from homemade rice krispie treats. Although I love both homemade and blue bar treats, I’ve never figured out why the blue-wrapped treats tasted so different from the homemade recipes I would make…until recently. By luck, I decided to make the standard Rice

High-Protein Banana Split Dessert

I am on a high-protein diet, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love a dessert now and again! When I eat something sweet, I try to balance it with a good amount of protein. I feel like I can stay on track better when my desserts are filled with protein—as they keep me full longer.

How to Make a Fondant Cake For Beginners

I’ve never used fondant until last week. And to be honest I have always been a little scared to try it. But I decided to give it a whirl when I was out shopping for my daughter’s first birthday and I found this multi pack of different colors of fondant on sale. It wasn’t nearly as

The frosting is literally the BEST vanilla bean frosting I’ve ever had. It holds its shape nicely for frosting cakes and cupcakes, yet is super soft and smooth when eating. It even

5 Tips for a Successful Game Day Spread

I remember the excitement and awe that I experienced as a young girl going to my first-ever college football game. My grandparents always bought season tickets, and we took turns going with them. We’d meet out in the parking lot and tailgate in and around their truck and fifth wheel. Then we would go inside the

To celebrate the football season I made this ‘Game Day Cheeseball.’ It is very simple really. You need just a few ingredients and about 7 minutes to make it.

High Protein Caramel Apple Dessert

Halloween is coming up and one of my all-time favorite Halloween treats is Caramel Apples. But I’m on a high-protein diet, so if I’m going to eat a treat it needs to have a good amount of protein.
