Over the weekend I went to a wine festival with some friends. Because, wine. Am I right? I’ve really only gone to a couple wine “tastings” before, so I wasn’t really sure what to expect since this was that – but on a much larger scale. Do you really ge
I first made these last Girl Scout cookie season, and I’m pretty sure they were consumed faster than I would normally eat the originals. Yup, they’re that good. Honestly, I think a big part of it is the natural ingredients. Once you start cleaning up your diet and choosi

I believe 100% that a pie crust can make or break a pie. Give me a flaky pie crust or the perfect graham cracker crust and I could eat it all day long. Unfortunately, even flaky pie crusts and graham cracker pie crusts have their downfalls. Flaky pie crusts tend to be made with lots
I love brownies. Almost as much as I love ice cream. Which would probably explain why my absolute favorite ice cream is Chocolate Brownie Thunder. Brownies IN ice cream?! Now that’s what I’m talking about. That being said, I obviously had to come up with a better-for-you version o
