Only 5 ingredients + 15 minutes. Not as decadent as those double peanut butter blossom cookies I shared last week but great for a last-minute Valentine's Day treat! #cookies   #valentinesday  
Perfect last-minute Valentine's Day dessert for your family get-together or preschool party! Makes approx. 2 dozen cookies.

Oh. My. Goodness. And by goodness I mean melty Reese's peanut butter hearts atop a super soft & chewy peanut butter cookie. Of course you could let these double peanut butter blossom cookies set before eating them and avoid melted chocolate on your chin, but why? #cookies   #reeses   #peanutbutter   #recipe  
I'm pretty sure this is the only way to make peanut butter kisses cookies. The gooey caramel and chocolate combined with soft, chewy peanut butter cookie are simply heavenly. Makes approx. 4 dozen.

Perfect--and delicious--way to cut carbs and add protein if you're starting off the new year with a fitness goal or two! #proteinatwalmart #ad  
Packed with over 30 grams of protein and less than 13 grams of sugar (8 grams of natural sugar from banana). Recipe makes 1 protein shake.

The perfect last-minute Valentine's Day class party for elementary school. Very little prep and very little cleanup!

I think I'll try making more bar cookies via saucepan. The dough is gooey, slightly warm and so irresistible. Plus one-pan cookies? Genius.
These coconut chocolate chip saucepan bars are made in a saucepan and then spread into a 9x13-inch pan for some of the yummiets bar cookies you'll ever bake! Try throwing in a ½ cup of chopped walnuts or pecans. Mmm... Makes approx. 24 bars.

Sure wish I had some of this baked fried chicken right now!
You will never guess this chicken is baked, not fried. Some of the crispiest, juiciest yummy baked fried chicken recipes on the Interweb.

Love fried rice but don’t love the “fried” part of fried rice because it totally doesn’t mesh with your 2016 fitness goals? You’ll want to make this healthy pineapple fried rice with Portobello mushrooms and edamame as soon as you can fit it into your weekly meal plan. #premiumveggies   #pmedia   #ad  
This healthy pineapple fried rice features fresh pineapple, portobello mushrooms and edamame for a healthy--and tasty--twist on your traditional fried rice recipe.

Kicking off the new year with a reader survey on the blog! (Yes, it's already January 12th and I'm late as usual--story of my life.) If you fill out the survey, I get to know you a little better and you get the chance to win a $25 Amazon gift card. I kinda like that.
I want to make 2016 the best year yet & that includes making this blog better than ever. To help me do so, I'd love for you to fill out this quick survey.

Designed this 5x7 printable for our Relief Society sisters. Love Howard W. Hunter's address from which these wise words came. Free printable (4x6 and 5x7) on the blog.

I rarely get photos taken of the kids due to the high price tag and cheesy photos, but I am in love with FotoFly. Their price is super affordable ($79 for a CD with copyright release of your high-res images & free sitting) and their backdrops are really unique. (I love their antique red barn wall--my fave!) We've visited FotoFly twice and always come out with great photos. It makes it impossible to choose just one or two! Good thing you can order sheets for $4! We already have one of the shots on canvas in our entryway. Beautiful!

Dr. Faddis is awesome! I've never seen such exceptional service. He does all the work himself (including cleaning) and is always very thorough. We've been going to Dr. Faddis for over 10 years. He is great with kids also!
