Since it was Donut’s second birthday last week, I decided that I wanted to make her a little something special. This recipe makes a ton of treats and literally involves less than 10 min of work! I’ve been trying to get a lot of use out of my new mini-cup silicone tray since I bought it for this recipe. It’s SO convenient, dishwasher-safe, and whatever I make in it takes basically no time at all (my favorite). I’ve had dog treats on my recipe list for awhile and decided that Donut’s birthday was a good enough reason as any to… View Post

Neil and I haven’t gone out to celebrate New Year’s in I don’t even know how many years. Considering the fact that I’m usually in bed by 10 most nights and much prefer sweatpants to stilettos, it’s not hard to imagine that our favorite way to celebrate is at home with each other (and Donut). Even though we don’t tend to go out much anymore, it’s still fun to celebrate the new year with the… View Post

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I have developed a serious love for eggnog that can not be tamed. I’ve always liked it and look forward to it every year, but for some reason this year it’s a little out of control. I’m blaming it on baby. I bought this mold (affiliate) from Amazon because I wanted to try making all the cute little magic-filled chocolate cups that I see everywhere and OMG it’s the easiest thing ever. I ate these all within two days and now I’m dreaming up other things to put in them. If… View Post

This post is sponsored by Sir Kensington’s. I don’t know about anyone else, but the temperatures dropped pretty much overnight here in Chicago. Granted, it’s not winter-level cold yet, but I would have preferred a longer period of 60-something days around here. 🙂 As the weather has gotten colder, I’ve been craving a big bowl of warm veggies and chicken, so when I realized that Sir Kensington’s recently came out with a new honey mustard sauce, I knew exactly what I would be making with it. There really wasn’t much to add in terms of the coating for the chicken,… View Post

This post is sponsored by Lifeway. You may or may not know about my obsession with farmer cheese. There was a period when I was eating it every day and then for some reason, as happens with almost every product that I love, my local grocery store stopped carrying it. WHYYYYYYY. I’ve gotten back into it and have been wanting to write this post for some time. I begged the people at Lifeway (actually since last year) to help me spread my love for farmer cheese and HERE WE ARE. A quick, nitty gritty about what it is and how… View Post
