A few things I'm loving....

I love to cook, bake, and plan ahead for great snack and breakfast ideas. Here are a few of my favorites!!

Ok this salad. Oh. My. Goodness. So yummy. It's filled with chicken, cheese, tortilla strips, avocado, corn and croutons. I mix a little bit of ranch with spicy BBQ and its a home run!!  Fresh. Filling.  Fantastic. 

These little bits of heaven are more than satisfying!  They taste just like Annie Anne's. I love a fresh mall pretzel. The problem is most of the time they are not as fresh as I would like...and at $4 a pop who wants to take that kind of risk?! Not this pretzel- lovin-momma!! So I have used this recipe and they never disappoint.  The girls love them and that is a win win!  Especially since I use whole wheat flour!  That automatically makes them a healthy snack!:)

This Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookie Pie is just that...a warm and gooey choc chip cookie.  Pair it with some fresh whipped cream or some ice cream and you have yourself a crowd pleasing dessert.  Sooo super easy and so super yummy! I use a refrigerated pie crust and it works perfectly!

These are a filling snack or breakfast alternative to a muffin or to oatmeal.  It's basically like a baked oatmeal muffin.  The girls like these and momma likes them too!!  These are healthy and light yet so filling!

I hope you enjoy these recipes as much as we have!  They are a staple at our house!!!:)

Branson getaway.

A couple of weekends ago we made a quick trip to Branson with some friends. We had a blast. As always. We shopped, ate, played Mexican train dominos and just hung out. So fun. So relaxing. So thankful for friends.

Here are some pics of our weekend!!

Just realized I only have 3 pics. Haha. Oh well. it really was a great time:)
