Today I’m really excited to present this recipe featuring one of my favorite cookies: Oreos. I got the idea for this Oreo Icebox Cake from this recipe for Chips Ahoy Icebox Cake by Spend with Pennies. I made a few tweaks, including the use of pudding, and all in all, it made a pretty tasty (and super easy!) dessert. Hope you like it! [Read more...]
The summer will soon be drawing to a close, but it’s not too late to get in to some summer recipes for those of end of summer and Labor Day barbecues. Recently I received a sample of Carapelli Olive Oil, and they also sent me some great recipes for the summer time, which I’m happy to share with you today.
By they way, olive oil also has a lot of health benefits and has a lower fat and calorie content in comparison to vegetable oil, so if you were looking to start off the school year a little more healthy, the addition of olive oil to recipes would be a simple place to start. [Read more...]
Today I have an amazingly simple treat for you! Growing up, I absolutely LOVED banana pudding in the summer time! Last year I tried Chick-Fil-A’s Banana Pudding Milkshake and was absolutely in love, but of course, they only had it for a limited time. So this spring I found myself basking in the glory of Zaxby’s Banana Pudding Milkshake, which is just as equally delicious! I now hear that it will be a permanent menu item at Zaxby’s….and indeed, they’ve just now brought back the shake at Chick-Fil-A (again, for a limited time).
But the other day I decided that I wanted to make my own. I remembered trying some banana pudding ice cream by Blue Belle years ago, so I went to Wal-Mart with high hopes and was very excited to find this ice cream in my freezer. Yay! Now I can have a banana pudding milkshake any time I want, and I get a lot more shake for my buck!
By the way, I made this shake using my Ninja! That thing is awesome!

As we all get ready to work out in the yard for the spring and summer seasons, I am happy to partner with Pennington Smart Seed to bring you some lawn maintenance tips. A few years ago we had some grass seed sown in our yard, and it didn’t come in quite as nicely as we would have liked. Not to mention, we still had a ton of weeds! Fortunately we’ve been introduced to Pennington Smart Seed and have been provided with all the information we need to get the job done right this time! [Read more...]
As spring is under way and summer is right around the the corner, it got me to thinking about cool refreshments. And what could be more refreshing than a nice, cool smoothie? And they’re generally pretty healthy too, right? So with all this in mind, I decided to collect 12 Smooth Recipes for you. And I think you’ll find a lot of variety here. These definitely go beyond the usual strawberry smoothie or strawberry banana smoothie. (Not that those aren’t great!) Anyway, I hope you enjoy!
