pack a lunch box
These little Pepperoni Pizza Muffins are packed with pepperoni and cheese, and are the perfect lunch box food or after school snack!
With a thick layer of caramel sandwiched between a snickerdoodle and white chocolate, these Caramel Snickerdoodle Bars are no friend of skinny jeans. But oh my goodness, how they're worth it.
Forget those boxed bars and make your own - these Funfetti Granola Bars are a fun twist on boring old granola!

Welcome to Wake Up Wednesdays Week 47! I can't believe we're heading into the final stretch of summer.  Seriously, where has the time gone?  I'm on vacation this week with my family, eating a ton - because calories don't count on vacation, right? You know another time calories don't count?  When you make a recipe from the Wake Up Wednesdays link party. ;-) Have you done anything fun this summer?  Be sure to let us know in the comments.

Coconut Mocha Iced Coffee

mocha-iced-coffee-title

With just the touch of a button, you can have a coffee-house style Coconut Mocha Iced Coffee in just under two minutes.  Nespresso's new VertuoLine makes brewing coffee a breeze!  One thing my friends and family know about me: I'm a coffee drinker.  Not because it's a cool or hip thing, but out of necessity.  Have you seen these shirts on etsy?  I'm pretty sure they're talking about me. And I'm not usually one for fancy, over-sugared coffee drinks.  I'm not sure if this dates back to my all-nighters during graduate school, frantically trying to shove as much 800-level finance and … {click for more...}



Blueberry Coconut Popsicles

It's summertime, and that means cooling off with icy treats!  With a blend of Greek yogurt, Silk Almond-Coconut Blend, and roasted berries, these Blueberry Coconut Popsicles are a guilt-free treat the whole family can enjoy!

It's summertime, and that means cooling off with icy treats!  With a blend of Greek yogurt, Silk Almond-Coconut Blend, and roasted berries, these Blueberry Coconut Popsicles are a guilt-free treat the whole family can enjoy! This summer I've been eating a lot of popsicles - specifically, a Blueberry Greek Yogurt Popsicle.  And while they are awesome, the high-priced boxes are about to send me to the poor house.  So, I've been on a mission to create a copycat version that won't break my pocketbook - or the calorie bank. I've been using Silk's new Almond-Coconut Blend all summer long.  I can … {click for more...}

Savory Garlic and Cheddar Chicken Panini

Meet our new favorite weeknight sandwich: this Savory Garlic and Cheddar Chicken Panini.  It's ready in just minutes, and uses some of my favorite Mezzetta products!

Meet our new favorite weeknight sandwich: this Savory Garlic and Cheddar Chicken Panini.  It's ready in just minutes, and uses some of my favorite Mezzetta products! I don't know about you, but our summer has been crazy. We've spent practically no time at home, and cooking has been waaaaay down on my list of priorities.  Sort of a weird thing for a food blogger, but even a person who lives for eating gets tired of cooking every now and then. Also, with nearly no time between work and baseball games, swimming lessons, karate classes...well, there's just not much time for gourmet food … {click for more...}

Welcome back to Wake Up Wednesdays - the day when you get to take over our blogs! I hope everyone had a great long weekend!  We definitely did here, and we're certainly in the throes of (hot hot hot) summer.  For me, that means little indoor cooking, and lots of meals around the grill and/or no bake everything! ;-) We are sharing your stuff like CRAZY on all of our social media and pinning to our Wake Up Wednesdays Pinterest Board, so make sure you are following along.
