Grilled Nutella Raspberry Sandwich


I think Valentine’s Day is a fun holiday. Candy hearts, boxes of chocolate, flowers, cute Valentine cards-what’s not to love? Since calories from sugar don’t count on Valentine’s Day-I always eat my fair share of sugary sweets. One of my favorite treats is a...

Loaded Nachos


I am sad the Bears didn’t make it to the Super Bowl, but I am not a poor sport. I will still watch the game. I don’t really care which team wins so now I can have a good time and focus on the...

Honey Yogurt Waffles


I try to eat yogurt every day, but Josh won’t touch the stuff. Wait, I take that back, Josh always makes our homemade yogurt, but he won’t eat it.  He hates the smell, texture, and taste. So when I made Honey Yogurt Waffles one...

Roasted Sweet Potato and Spinach Risotto


I think it is cold almost everywhere right now. If it is warm where you are, can I come visit? I wish I could hibernate for the winter, but every day I am forced to face the frigid temperatures. The only thing that seems...

Chocolate Chip Almond Toffee Cookies


My cookie fast is officially over and I blame my friend Rachael. She was visiting Utah for the holidays and brought me a large tin of her famous chocolate almond toffee. My first reaction was to run and hide the toffee so I wouldn’t...
