Peppermint Mocha Cookies

Where are my crispy cookie fans at???

RECIPE: Cacao Crunch Smoothie

Often times I just throw things in the Vitamix and don’t pay any attention to measurements…leaving me guessing when I try to replicate a delicious smoothie.

RECIPE: Maple Crunch Granola {Oil-Free}

We LOVE granola, but it’s a struggle to find one we can eat without spending an arm and a leg.  Making your own not only saves you money, but you can also easily change up the flavor and texture. This time around, I was on a mission to create one that was not only full of flavor,…
