Cold S’mores {No Bake & Super Easy!}

cold smores

  I first learned about cold s’mores during the summer of 2006 when my son was enrolled in the sweetest little cooking class for preschoolers (it was actually the summer before he started preschool, he wasn’t even three years old!). It was a mommy and me style cooking class where we made simple and easy recipes with […]

PB & Pumpkin Oat Bran Muffins

  Is it just me or is walking a 5k so much harder than running a 5k? I can’t tell you how many times I asked Kelly if we were at the finish yet. It was great to come together in memory Adam and to catch up with the entire family especially since most of the reminiscing […]

Grain-Free Banana Bread Bites (Or Crumble)

  I keep meaning to update my Vegetarian Meal Ideas post to show you how I don’t need to meal plan, I just need to have specific ingredients always on hand in order to whip up good food fast. One of my must-have pantry items is Organic Chick Peas. Chick Peas and Garbanzo Beans are the same thing. I […]

DASH Store And Whole Wheat Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

  I interrupt the initial post I had planned in my head for this morning to bring you scenes from yesterday’s random excursion. My son didn’t go to camp yesterday because the trip scheduled for his group (his camp program this summer involves three days playing in camp and two days where they go on day trips) involved an […]

Progression Running and Mother’s Day Recipes

progression interval workout

  I really enjoyed my work out yesterday morning. So much so that I put together a fun little graphic for you in case you want to give it a shot the next time you are in the gym unsure of what you feel like doing with yourself while you are there. You may be […]

Rainy Running And Fruity Cereal Squares

  I am trying to understand how I enjoyed running 13.1 miles in the pouring rain early Saturday morning but dreaded walking three steps from my car to the restaurant Saturday night. If you follow me on instagram, you already saw that I was high on soaking wet endorphins after my long run. It was raining the entire time […]

Three Tip Tuesday – Two Links + A Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

  I ran six miles yesterday on the treadmill. Simply stating this fact to you without including details really doesn’t tell you much other than the number of miles. See. Just telling you I ran 6 miles now looks totally different, doesn’t it? There is nothing wrong with breaking up your runs. I don’t always, […]

All Holidayed-Out

  Something interesting happened after we spoke yesterday morning. I didn’t feel well. It was a short-lived bout with “not feeling well” but I was nauseous enough to know that there was no way I could go for a run. Or even a walk. Or attempt any form of my 30 minutes a day. Doesn’t […]

Chocolate Cake On The Mind But Let’s Talk About Dinner

  You are in luck this morning; I have to get the little boy up and out early for a routine doctor’s appointment therefore I do not have a lot of time to rehash my love for the chocolate fudge cookie dough layer cake or discuss with you how I am still thinking about it, talking […]

Chocolate Fudge Cookie Dough Layer Cake

    I am a smart girl. One part street-smart, one part book-smart, and well, one part DESSERT SMART. If you are looking to enjoy a good dessert, you can always count on me to point you in the right direction, bake it for you or go with you to the right place to have it. And, as long as […]

Birthday Dinner Preparations And Chocolate Fudge Frosting

  Tomorrow is my dad’s birthday. I thought about sending him an Edible Arrangement knowing he would offer to share it with me but I decided not to go with a completely selfish birthday gift. I don’t even think he likes chocolate dipped fruit, or really any fruit besides an apple. Instead, I decided to prepare and host a […]
