Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread

Happy new year everyone!! What did everyone do to celebrate?? We had a very low-key night, stayed in, finally finished watching Stranger Things 2 and I nursed a cold. I have to say, I’ve been so lucky and somehow haven’t gotten sick since before I was pregnant. But this on is a doozy. And sadly, Landon has it as well 🙁 It’s one thing for me to be sick, to be able to take medicine or use whatever remedies I feel like trying but it’s so hard to see him sick when there is so little I can do for him. Fingers crossed it doesn’t last much longer.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Can I just say, infant sleep training is not for the faint of heart. I’m probably taking longer with each stage because once he masters one part, I just want to sleep at night so I am hesitant to move on to the next stage. We’ve only been working on it for a week and the first stage is getting baby comfortable with sleeping with his arms outside the swaddle. I may be starting a bit too early, we will see. Most blogs and experts recommend sleep training not begin until after 4 months old.

Cookies & Cream Cheesecake Bars

I mean…I don’t really feel like I need to say much about these. The name kind of says all you need to know…Cookies & Cream Cheesecake Bars! We DEVOURED these! Just looking at the photo and remembering how delicious they were is making me want to whip up another batch. They were so easy too, no bake, just chill in the fridge for a bit and then eat to your hearts content. Ok, it’s settled, I’m making them again.

Mini Brownie Sundaes

I came home from work today, put on my workout clothes and was ready to get a productive workout in. First I needed a snack, something healthy, because I was going to workout after all. Once my pre-workout snack was complete, I realized I needed to take some blog photos and should do so before the daylight went away. One of the photos I needed was of this delicious mini brownie sundae which meant I needed to make a mini sundae first. Photos were finished and I was left with a delicious mini brownie sundae which I OBVIOUSLY wasn’t going to throw out, plus it was topped with ice cream so I couldn’t save it for later…now, not only am I not working out but I’m eating a brownie sundae for dinner.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Somebody please help me!! I’m not kidding, not exaggerating…I CAN NOT STOP EATING THESE! For some reason, because I made them, I don’t feel nearly as guilty as if I were eating the store bought kind. I can’t get over how good these peanut butter cups are. No bake, only 3 ingredients and little mini sizes that are only 100 calories each, so it’s a tiny little snack for your dessert cravings. At least, that’s what I told myself…then my husband and I ate the whole pan…The secret is the coconut oil mixed into the peanut butter, makes it extra creamy.

Peppermint Bark

When I first got married, I was lucky enough to be a stay-at-home wife. That only lasted about 6 months before I went totally crazy and was bored out of my mind (if only I had the blog back then). While I was playing Suzie Homemaker, I decided to try making candy. This peppermint bark was my first attempt and it was amazing! Not only that, it was so simple. I had heard that candy making is very difficult (which it is) so I was expecting a labor intensive afternoon, but literally, 50 minutes start to finish, and that includes the time it is cooling in the fridge.
