Let’s be honest. Valentine’s Day is heavily skewed to women. The flowers, the chocolates, the sappy cards full of romantic poetry…all of that is right up our alley. But your husband shouldn’t be left out of the romance just because he happens to be a man! You can put together a thoughtful gift basket for him with a little creativity and some printer ink.

Homemade Granola Bars: Healthy Snacking

Posted on Jan 28, 2015 in Appetizers/Snacks | 8 comments


granola bars

 The first month of 2015 is almost over already! Did you make a New Year’s resolution to lose weight or just be more conscious about what you eat? Are healthy snacks something you are trying to eat more often? I know it’s easy to make those resolutions but oh-so-hard to keep them! I had been losing weight over the last 6 months or so, but when the holidays came around, I lived like a queen. It was fun to eat all that junk, but sure enough, I’m paying the price now! I gained 5 pounds back and it’s been so hard to get those off again! One way I control my weight better is to keep snacks in the house that I won’t regret eating. So I went searching for a recipe for homemade granola bars. I found one that I liked on Pioneer Woman and changed things up just a little bit. The result was a tasty, satisfying snack that I don’t regret eating!

how to save a facebook post

I was scrolling through my Facebook page answering comments the other day when I noticed something I had never seen before. When I clicked on the drop down arrow on the right side of one of my photos so I could pin it to the top, I saw something that said, “Save.”

save on facebook

 I don’t know about you, but I see articles and recipes in my News feed that I would love to read but may not have time right then to do so. Where has this option been all my life??? Facebook launched it this last summer, so it’s not completely new, but I thought I would share it with you. Just in case you see my posts in your feed and would LOVE to go back to read them again and again and again and again. :) If you click on that “save” option, this is what you’ll see:

ritz pizza bites

 

I don’t know if food bars are really anything new, but I love the whole idea. They make party preparation SO MUCH EASIER. There’s no need to worry about who likes what, who’s allergic, who’s vegetarian or if things are kid-friendly. Just start with a great blank canvas like Ritz crackers and then fill your table with toppings. When the guests arrive, let them do all the work have all the fun!
