Sometimes in the food blogging world, you hit the jackpot with a new recipe…and that is exactly what I did with this one, definitely one of my proudest moments (forget graduation, getting married, having kids, etc – – ha ha :). Okay okay, I am obviously exaggerating, but seriously only a little bit. These bars are GOOD, and addictive, and decadent, and indulgent, and everything you could possible want from a dessert plus more.
When I was in college I had awesome roommates, like seriously awesome! One of my roommates used to make us pull apart Monkey Bread, and I was pretty sure she had completed my life. It was so good! She said that it is what her mom would make their family on Christmas morning, and I could see why, it was insanely delicious.
I have never made the monkey bread myself. I don’t have the recipe, and I have never been that ambitious…but I have never forgotten it, like I said it completed my life :). In fact, I was going down memory lane the other day, which made me think about that bread..so I decided I would make my own healthier and simpler version, and that is how these Cinnamon Clover Rolls came to be.
I am taking a break from the What I Ate Wednesday posts for the next two weeks. Christmas is just over a week away, and I thought it would be more fun to post some festive recipes instead. If you … Continue reading
I believe that health is more than just eating healthy. I believe in health from a holistic point of view, and believe physical health is just as important as phycological, emotional, and spiritual health. January tends to be a time when people focus a little bit more on physical health (which is always a good thing), so I like to take a little bit of extra time during the month of December to focus on my spiritual health. For me, it means becoming closer to Jesus Christ by reading scripture, praying, serving others, and listening to uplifting music. I encourage all of you to focus a little more on your own spiritual health this month (it’s one of the reasons I love this time of year), whatever that means to you…take a couple extra minutes to meditate, pray, serve others, attend a spiritual service, or whatever else makes you feel spiritually connected.
I attached a beautiful rendition of Angels We Have Heard on High done by The Piano Guys, Peter Hollens, and David Archuleta, I love it, and thought I would share it with all of you.
Cake, for breakfast, yes please. Honestly, who is going to turn down cake for breakfast, certainly not anyone with a sane mind; full disclosure – I would probably turn down a piece of cake stacked with frosting, not because I … Continue reading
I think I have found my new favorite cookie – I know, I know I say that every time I post a new cookie recipe. I can’t help it, I love cookies, and I think they are all my favorite. … Continue reading
One of my favorite ways to help out my family, friends, and neighbors when they need an extra hand is to take them dinner. It’s easy for me to do, and super helpful for those that need it. Plus, I … Continue reading
Yesterday wasn’t my finest day for healthy meals. It wasn’t awful, but I found myself being less prepared than I would like to be, which resulted in some less than optimal grab-and-go food choices; such is life sometimes :)…so lets … Continue reading
For all of my Christian friends, this is a short video reminding us of the true meaning of Christmas. To all of my non-Christian friends, happy holidays, and may the spirit of the season bless your families and homes.
Happy Monday! How is everyone’s December going? Ours is going well. We had a fun-filled weekend full of Christmas parties, gingerbread houses, shopping, baking, and Santa crafts. I am pretty sure my little girl’s highlight of the weekend was eating … Continue reading
