Blueberry Smoothie

Very Berry Blue Smoothie

You haven’t lived until you’ve had this smoothie. It is berry, creamy and fulfilling decadence. Oh, and that creamy part….yeah…that is homemade blueberry whipped cream on top….I landed in blueberry heaven with this smoothie.

Maple Cashew Icing With Maple Flakes

What if I told you this was a healthy icing that you could enjoy guilt free? What if I told you it contained no butter or shortening and not the traditional sugars? Well, it’s true.

Peanut Butter Granola Bars

Peanut Butter Lovers Granola Bars (Gluten-Free, Oil-Free)

Chocolate Pumpkin Cake Bites

Chocolate Pumpkin Cake Squares

I use to be addicted to Starbucks Pumpkin Loaf! I like the moist, sweet and mild pumpkin flavor. I like pumpkin…but not overpowering…like a pumpkin pie for instance. That’s just too much pumpkin for me. I use to go several times a week for a slice. Well at almost $2 a slice and the unhealthy [...]
