Homemade 4 Course Valentine’s Day Meal
Valentine’s Day is just under a week away. If you’re like most of us you’re trying to figure out what to do. Especially this year since inside dining is not recommended in most states. Not to mention the polar blast that will impact the entire country during Valentine’s Day weekend. This means outdoor dining isn’t an option for the majority of us, including those of us in the “warmer” climate. I decided to put together this recipe roundup for a suggested at home Valentine’s Day celebration. This homemade 4 course Valentine’s Day meal gives you the restaurant feel in your own home. It’s truly the best of both worlds!Read More

Pumpkin Spice Funnel Cake
It’s the season of pumpkin spice. Pumpkin spice candles, drinks, desserts, food, everything. What a glorious time it is! If you’re a pumpkin spice hater this post and recipe is not for you. However, before you go I just want you to know that you’re wrong. Ok? See you later! Now back to those of us who appreciate pumpkin spice everything.

Hollywood Sugar Cookies
We are in the middle of award season and it’s been an exciting one so far. Every year I look forward to seeing my favorite celebrities dressed up in beautiful gowns and perfectly tailored suits. If I’m completely honest, I’ve hit that age where I only know about 15% of the people nominated or performing. Ha! With that said, what’s even more fun than the award show itself are the watch parties we get to participate in during the shows. What is an award show without being able to discuss the fashion and award winners in detail with our friends? Read More
Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner and one of my absolute favorite Valentine’s Day desserts are chocolate covered strawberries. Chocolate plus strawberry equals a match made in heaven. It feels good not feeling too guilty about eating a dozen all by yourself. You know, since it’s fruit underneath the chocolate LOL.Read More
Halo Top Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake
Halo Top Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake
Today is officially the first day of Summer. For those of you looking for a delicious and non-guilty dessert to cool you off this summer, try out this easy and yummy Halo Top Chocolate Peanut Butter Milkshake.
I've recently discovered how much I enjoy Halo Top ice cream. Not only is it delicious, but it's guilt free! Most pints are 300 calories or less. Yes, the entire pint is only 300 calories! It's like finding a small piece of heaven on earth. They have so many delicious flavors and my new life goal is to try them all. Ha! But in all seriousness, it's so nice to finally have an ice cream us clean eaters can enjoy, without the guilt that usually comes with it.
This recipe is perfect for a quick sweet tooth fix. You can even pour the milkshake into popsicle trays and make healthy popsicles for little ones. If you're wanting even more nutrients in this dessert, add a small banana to the ingredients list. I promise it's just as delicious!
- 1 pint Halo Top Chocolate Ice Cream
- 1 cup Almond Milk
- 2 Tbsp Honey
- 2 Tbsp PB2
Pour your Halo Top ice cream, almond milk, honey, and PB2 into a blender.
Use the "milkshake" option and blend for 2-3 minutes.
Pour your milkshake into your glass and enjoy!
*If you want it with more ice, you can either add ice cubes to the blender, or place a freezer safe cup with your shake in the freezer for 10 minutes, or until ice chunks form.*
Berry Smoothie Pops
Summer may be over a month away, but here in Montana, we’ve already had a few days of summer-like temperatures, and there couldn’t be a better time to eat a delicious, Berry Smoothie Pop! I take my little one to the park every day to run some of her energy off, and we always find ourselves coming back home looking for a delicious, quick, and more importantly, cold snack to eat. One of her favorite post park snacks is a fresh strawberry and blueberry mix. Have I mentioned how blessed I am to have a toddler who loves and eats fresh fruit like it’s candy? Read More
Bananas Foster Banana Bread
I was cleaning my kitchen the other day when I noticed I had an entire bunch of bananas, on my counter, had already turned bad, and needed to be used ASAP. I naturally thought of making banana bread with them, because that’s always my default answer to using old bananas, but I wanted to do something a little different with the banana bread.Read More
Super Bowl Sunday-Funday
The day is finally here ladies and gentlemen…Super Bowl Sunday! I don’t know about you guys but this is one of the first Super Bowl match ups I’m excited to watch because I love both of the quarterbacks. I can honestly say whether Superman Cam walks away with his first ring or Peyton walks away with possibly his last ring, I will be a happy lady! However, what is any super bowl without the delicious snacks?! My family and I have our usual favorite get together/party snacks, but some snacks are so super bowl worthy they have to be made for multiple occasions. Here are the snacks I have prepared for today’s festivities 🙂
Chips & Queso:
I found this recipe on Pinterest a few years back and it’s actually quite popular. Most grocery stores even have an entire display dedicated to the popular “chips and dip” during super bowl time. However, for my dip I use Velveeta’s Queso Blanco and add 1 lbs. of seasoned ground beef (or turkey). Guys…it’s SO good. The instructions are easy: brown 1 lbs. of ground beef/turkey in a medium sized pot. Add your block of cheese cut into three pieces to the cooked meat. Constantly stir to prevent the cheese from sticking and burning until it has all melted together. Take your can of Rotel and mix into the cheese and meat. Pour into a bowl and serve!
BBQ Root Beer Chicken Wings:
YES- these wings are as yummy and delicious as they look in the picture. My husband saw this recipe on Tasty’s Facebook page about two months ago and it’s one of our favorites. If you would like to give it a try, head on over to Tasty’s Facebook page, like them, and try out this recipe (along with many of their other delicious recipes)!
The wings were still in the crock pot so I couldn’t get a picture with the sign lol.
Root Beer Floats:
These are pretty self explanatory. When are root beer floats NOT a good idea? Exactly. They’re easy, fun and delicious which are all the right description words for a successful dessert following yummy snacking foods. I am a huge fan of the individual IBC root beer bottles so guests don’t have to share, and wait to use one 2 liter bottle of root beer.
This honestly has nothing to do with the Super Bowl. I had overly ripe bananas and didn’t want to throw them away/waste them. Why not make some delicious banana bread to send home with our guests to eat for breakfast throughout the week? We’re already having root beer floats for dessert so the banana bread would be overkill. If you would like to make this delicious banana bread click here for the yummy recipe.
In addition to these delicious snacks for our Super Bowl get together our friends are bringing homemade quesadillas and nachos. It’s going to be a great evening in the Jamieson household and an even better food “cheat day” for me! Haha. What are your go to snack foods for Super Bowl Sunday? Feel free to comment and share below.
Enjoy your Super Bowl Sunday and I hope whoever you’re cheering for wins!
