6 “Diet” Foods You’ll Want to Eat

six diet foods you'll want to eat

I hate the word diet and just don’t believe in dieting. Could be why I have a few extra lbs to lose, but I believe we’ve gotten a little too obsessed about what we should or shouldn’t eat, and that we spend too much time thinking about it. You know, the gluten-free, dairy free, sugar is like cocaine, that’s a wheat belly you’ve got there…message we hear everywhere. It gets confusing to know what to eat anymore.

So, I have been working on eating better, eating mostly whole foods and not overdoing it. You know, the moderation thing. {read more}

Cookie butter. Have you tried it? It’s amazing.

If you haven’t tried cookie butter, or speculoos, you will find it in the nut butter aisle at Trader Joe’s. It has the consistency of peanut butter but tastes like a cookie. I know.
I know.

So, I came up with my homemade cookie butter recipe, I hope you like it!

Serve with fruit (apples or banana slices are good), or spread on bread or crackers. Also makes a great topping for waffles or, well, anything. 🙂

If you try the recipe, let me know how you like it! {read more}

Easy Cinnamon Rolls Recipe


I have been searching for the perfect cinnamon roll recipe forever. I found it.

The perfect recipe had to deliver soft, gooey rolls with just the right amount of cinnamon and icing.

Over the past few weeks I’ve made a lot of batches of cinnamon rolls, much to the pleasure of my husband who has been my eager taste tester. Have another roll babe, enjoy.

Anyway, I do not in any way claim to be the creator of this recipe. It is just slightly adapted from our beloved Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond. Believe me, I wouldn’t dream of messing with the Pioneer Woman. I’m pretty sure she can herd sheep and lasso bulls while simultaneously baking the perfect pie. Her recipe does make a ton of rolls, so I’ve cut it in half since we aren’t feeding a ranch. One for you to enjoy right away and another for the freezer. So here we go…easy cinnamon rolls! {read more}
