Nutty Chocolate Candy

This recipe comes from this post at Daily Bites. The only difference is that I used half the nuts her recipe calls for. It's very quick and easy, and is the perfect fix for my chocolate sort of reminds me of peanut M&M's, just because of the crunchy nuts swallowed in chocolate :)

Cherry Berry "Cereal"

Happy Saturday!

I've enjoyed this Paleo "cereal" so much, that one day I decided to make a different version of it: I call it Cherry Berry Cereal :)

The Apricot Chronicles, Part 2

Here's another apricot post! This is one of my favorites :) I've enjoyed my recipes such as this apple crumble so much, that I decided to make one out of apricots. Since the skin on the apricots is so soft, you may be able to make this without peeling the fruit....just cut in half and take the seeds out. I haven't tried it this way, but I think it would work just as well (whatever your preference is).

The Apricot Chronicles, Part 1

This week, a family from my church gave me the privilege of picking fresh apricots from their tree in the backyard. There's nothing quite like fresh fruit--juicy, still warm from the summer sun...yummy! :)

Meals that Freeze Well

This has been on my mind lately, so I thought I'd share it:
Father's Day four years ago was a time I will never forget. And it didn't really have much of anything to do with the actual holiday, except that it made it a day where I always remember. Four years today, actually. Read more in my previous blog post here. Then you can come back to this page :)

Chocolate Pudding Pie

For those of you who have seen the movie The Help, I hope you'll forgive me for putting in this recipe for Chocolate Pudding Pie...Hopefully it won't scare you away, and you'll still try this! I promise, the only mystery ingredients in this pie are good-for-you ingredients! ;)

Never too much ice cream :)

I've been saving this one...And at this point, you may be sick of all my ice cream posts. But you haven't seen the last of them! And with it being summer and all, I thought it appropriate to share this recipe for Coconut Chai ice cream. 
Maybe I should just do a whole month of ice cream recipes! :)

It's summer! I took this photo a few days ago while driving...
We have been having the weirdest summer weather this week. Earlier in the week, it rained for a couple days, and then it's been overcast and misty for the rest of the week...Very strange for West Texas. But I'm not complaining :) I love the moisture, and I know it's helping the farmers in our area....Yay for no more drought! :)

When Friends Gather

Having just finished a week-long vacation with my family, of course I wanted to come home and immediately duplicate some of the yummy things that I tasted there. Over the next several posts, I'm going to share some recipes that I felt deserved special recognition.

My own tips for traveling GF

I've been out of the loop when it comes to blogging, because my family and I have been on our "summer vacation" this past week. This was our first trip to Cancun :)
(More travel posts to come...)

A small glimpse at how my family travels...
