Are you staring at your dining room table littered with colorful wrappers of candy, candy, candy! Before you throw it all away, transform your leftover chocolate candy into the world’s sweetest cookie!
Whether you are trying to get rid of excess candy you purchased for Trick or Treaters, or trying to minimize your child’s loot bag, Candy Cookie Bars are the tastiest and easiest way to reduce your candy supply before it goes to waste.
These cookie bars are basically the Halloween kitchen sink of cookies. It doesn’t matter what chocolate candy you throw into the batter, it will always taste good. Imagine the ooey gooey-ness of Snickers caramel, the creaminess of Reese’s Peanut Butter and the crunch from M&M’s. Each bite is a taste of your favorite candy bar surrounded by a soft cookie shell.
Let’s talk about… SQUASH! Personally, I’m a huge fan of squash all year round. Spaghetti squash with homemade sauce, zucchini squash boats stuffed with taco filling, creamy butternut squash soup… you name it and I’ll eat it! Of all the different kinds of squash each season, my favorite by far is delicata squash (and not because of the fun zebra striped skin!)
Delicata squash, also known as sweet potato squash, is a winter squash commonly known for its creamy texture and sweet taste. It’s also one of the easiest squash to prepare and cook, with zero peeling necessary and short cook times in either the oven, microwave or on the stovetop. Not only delicious, delicata squash is a good source of dietary fiber and potassium, and also provides small amounts of magnesium, manganese, vitamins C and B.
It’s obvious that fall is finally here. Instagram is filled with #basic pictures of apple picking, pumpkin spice lattes, colorful foliage and fall decor (fall decorating ideas on a budget coming soon!)
If you’re like me, you love the food that comes with the fall season. Roasted root vegetables, hearty soups and countless apple and/or pumpkin desserts that make you want to eat every last crumb. With so many different festive desserts to choose from, let me help narrow your search by providing the only apple dessert you’ll want to make this fall.
Who’s hungry?! If you read my first post, you know my favorite food is tacos. I’m pretty sure I could eat tacos every night of the week – hard shell, soft shell, taco salad – you name it! But let’s face it, making a taco spread with all the fixings takes a lot of cutting prep and dirties a lot of dishes. This fifteen minute southwestern taco bowl cuts your prep, cooking and cleaning time nearly in half. And, it’s high in protein and low carb. Make a large batch after work and enjoy later in the week for lunch, dinner and even breakfast. Just add an egg and you’ve got a deconstructed breakfast burrito!
