Our Snowman Oreo Cookies make the perfect treat to share with friends, family, potluck, parties, etc. My son has a cookie exchange and of course, we sent a nice tray of cookies. They asked for store-bought, so I happily obliged. I can understand people are concerned with allergies.

This year, I decided I am starting new holiday traditions and trying to get into the Christmas spirit! I just put up our first Christmas tree! This is my first Christmas tree as an adult and as a single mom. A few years ago, we had a Christmas tree, however, my mother-in-law set it up for us. It was beautiful and we loved it. This is our first Christmas tree in our new home.

You Are Going To ‘Loaf’ This

A Dinner Roll Recipe That Will Be The New Family Favorite.

Beauty Brite Disclosure

It’s Friday night and time to prepare a family favorite. Dinner rolls. Not just any type of dinner rolls. Addicting Dinner Rolls. I stumbled across this recipe a while back on Pinterest, but I would like to think of it as fate. At first I thought it was a some sort of click-bait, but then I was lead to a YouTubers channel by the name ‘She’s in her Apron’ featuring this recipe and I was smitten. So I tossed on my Coddies Bread Loafers and got to work. Might as well dress the part right??

3 Ingredient No Bake Hershey’s Pie

As a busy mom, I love making easy meals, snacks, and desserts. Being a chocolate lover, I recently whipped up the 3 Ingredient No Bake Hershey’s Pie and it was a hit! My son and I devoured it. With the holidays coming up, I plan on making this again for us! 

3 Ingredient No Bake Hershey's Pie

A few weeks ago, my son and I celebrated our first Thanksgiving in our new home. With that, I knew I didn’t want to cook and prepare a huge feast since it was just the two of us. So, I was unsure if I would do anything. I ended up buying a pre-prepared holiday meal from a local grocery store. There was a vegan meal offered, so I had to order it. I also bought a pumpkin pie. Little did I know, my son loved the Pumpkin Pie. He also enjoyed eating the vegan roast!

Small, filler-type gifts are one of my favorite things about planning for birthdays and all the different holidays that we love to celebrate. Sometimes these small, inexpensive filler gifts will go into an overall gift basket. But, for Christmas they more often than not are destined for my kids’ Christmas stockings (unless they directly correlate with a larger gift).

For example, if I’m gifting a makeup organizer or beauty bag to one of my daughters, I might purchase bottles of nail polish/polish remover, nail files, eyeliner/mascara/eye shadow, makeup remover pads or other such items to put inside the organizer or bag before wrapping. However, if I’m not gifting a larger item like that, these smaller items will end up in their Christmas stockings along with the small treats or candies.

Some things I buy for stockings every year — a candy cane, chocolate candies like Hershey Kisses, a chocolate santa or reindeer, Christmas-themed suckers, etc. But, I truly thrive on finding totally unique items to also stick in there that I’ve never given before.

Here, I will be sharing some of the fun, unique items that are going into my kids’ stockings this year. They would also work great in gift baskets, too.

I can’t wait to see how they react! The first two items listed are snack foods. Since the holidays are inevitably full of sweet and high-calorie treats, I decided to share two snacks that are not only delicious and full of flavor but also healthy treat options! But, trust me, your loved ones won’t even know it because they will be so bowled over by the flavors.

Instant Pot Cranberry French Toast

Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Do you have plans? My son and I are spending the holiday together. After talking to a great friend, I explained to her that I was thinking of ordering a “pre-made holiday meal” from a local grocery store. She convinced me that I should do it! So, I ordered a vegan Thanksgiving meal that feeds two people. There is so much food included and with my son being such a picky eater, I know there will be plenty of leftover food for at least a week! Since I have an Instant Pot, I love making delicious meals and such for us. I recently made Instant Pot Cranberry French Toast and it was a hit! This makes an awesome breakfast, especially with those cranberries you may on hand!

If you already have an Instant Pot, what are your favorite recipes? My son loves pasta, so I like to make him spaghetti! I know there are so many recipes out there to try! In the past, I’ve tried Quinoa Fried Rice a few times. It was pretty good.

When it comes to eco-friendly household products, you have to be careful. Some household products are too strong, with heavy doses chemicals, and some are too weak and leave you questioning if they’re actually accomplishing anything. So, when it comes to items used to clean food or appliances you have to be choosey.
