Read on for tips on how to indulge healthfully!   Chocolate and […]

Who Needs a Cupcake?

I was spending an hour or two on my latest addiction, Pinterest the other night. Raise your hand if you are hooked too. The last thing I needed was something else to keep me on the computer, but boy am I hooked. I love that site. I can’t believe how many new recipe sites I […]

Menu Plan Your Butt Off

I have to be honest, I’m not very good at menu planning every week.  The two times I have done since we started this segment at Shrinking Jeans have been awesome weeks of eating at our house.  All the other weeks that I have not done it have still been yummy weeks of eating but […]

“Get More From What You Put In”: Splenda® Essentials™ *Review*Giveaway*Recipe

  Sweets. I really, really, REALLY love sweets. They are my diet downfall. I like to blame my hippie parents for depriving me of sugar as a child. Total denial of sugary cereals, candy and snacks turned me into a sugar fiend. As soon as I was out of the house…BOOM…I was knee deep in […]

Dessert Recipe- Cooking Light’s Peanut Butter Cup Blondies

I almost feel like I shouldn’t be posting this recipe, it’s almost like I am encouraging you to make this dessert.  It seems all kinds of wrong to post a recipe with the words peanut + butter + cup + blondie, doesn’t it?  I mean, just because Cooking Light published this recipe doesn’t mean it’s […]

Help! I’m having a chocolate attack!

There comes a time in every girl’s month when all hell breaks loose. Yes. I’m talking about that time of the month. During that time of the month, I crave sweets like no other. Cake, chocolate, ice cream, cookies! It’s a terrible sickness. I’m just going to admit it; I’m not very good in the […]

Use Your Melon!

Use Your Melon!

During my recent pregnancy, the only insatiable craving I had was watermelon. We probably went through at least three personal sized seedless watermelons per week, because my three year old son is also addicted. He actually will sneak into the fridge for watermelon. I can’t complain. Watermelon is a great low calorie way to satisfy […]

Recipe: Chewy PB2 Cookies

Happy National Peanut Butter Cookie Day!!!  What? You mean you didn’t know that holiday was happening today?  Well, now you do. I love peanut butter cookies.  I make no apology for that fact.  I mean, seriously, what’s not to love?  It’s a cookie and the main ingredient is peanut butter! *swoon*  Of course, now that […]

Recipe: Brownies with Spinach. Yes, Spinach.

I”m a veggie hider, I confess. It’s not so much that my family won’t eat vegetables in their natural state…it’s more about packing nutrition into foods that generally aren’t healthy. It makes me feel a little better about the treats I love so much. This recipe comes from Jessica Seinfeld’s book ‘Deceptively Delicious.’ I can’t […]

Recipe: Mango-Orange Yogurtsicles & Lime in the Coconut Pops

Mango-Orange Yogurtsicle It has been miserably cold and rainy here and I’m dreaming of summer. Obsessing, really. Thus, I’m posting popsicle recipes. And really, when CAN’T you eat a popsicle? Dessert on a stick is always a good thing. Plus, I know there are some of you out there who live in places where it’s […]

Cookies. For Breakfast. No, That Isn't a Typo.

Cookies. For Breakfast. No, That Isn’t a Typo.

My name is Heather and I am a cookie addict. My husband’s nickname for me is cookie monster.  No cookie is safe in my presence. Therefore, I rarely have any in the house. Because I will eat them for any meal of the day. Even breakfast. Erin Baker’s Breakfast Cookies are from the town where […]

Sweet on Sweet Potatoes

I only have sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving, and usually laden with butter, brown sugar, marshmallows and pecans.  Not so good for me, eh?  I love the taste of sweet potatoes and while I had heard “they are good for you”, I never really knew why until I started researching for this post. My friend Wikipedia […]

Taste Of Sisterhood: V8 Bloody Mary

How do you round out the perfect hangover brunch? With a perfect Bloody Mary of course! Because: I am reviewing the delicious array of V8 juices this week and decided that a V8 cocktail would be a great way to tie the two in and… And because I’ve never even had a bloody mary before and… […]
