The holidays encompass so many things in my mind. I cherish the extra time with family that falls through the cracks throughout the year. I love seeing friends from near and far, coming together under one roof for one party or another. I crave the food that is hearty and rich and should only be enjoyed among the ones you love. It’s the epitome of holidays to me.
To kick off the season in eatable fashion, a cheese board is the staple of it all. The conversation starter. A piece of art. A mix of flavors that pairs the best with wine. From Thanksgiving to Christmas my heart bursts at the seams with all that’s in store. Cheese boards are the beginning of memories to be made. Here’s to the combinations on one small board that will have your heart singing from Thanksgiving to Christmas and beyond!
No matter the time of year, it’s become one of our favorite sweet tooth cravings in our household. Which one you ask? The frozen yogurt or the dark chocolate peanut butter cups? Actually, both! The best idea was to put the two together to create a bowl of goodness.
Our ice cream maker was an unexpected gift for our wedding and boy did we welcome it with open arms! It is easy to use and clean up!
Even if it is chilly outside, your family will love this and keep coming back from more. Plus, you don’t need to tell them it’s made with yogurt and candy without junk and less sugar than normal. 😉 Secrets safe! xo
1.5 cups whole milk
1/4 cup granulated sugar
4 cups Stonyfield Vanilla Greek Yogurt
1/4 cup heavy cream
6 UnReal dark chocolate peanut butter cups (cut into bite-sized pieces)
What to do:
Combine all ingredients, except peanut butter cups, into a stand or hand-held mixer. Mix until sugar is dissolved. Pout into ice cream maker and churn for about 20 minutes. Churn another five minutes. Then, slowly add the bite-sized peanut butter cups. Pour ice cream into a freezer safe container with a lid. Place in the freezer for at least two hours. Scoop and enjoy!

When I was younger, I never understood my Mom’s craving of chocolate. I liked it and all but craaaaaving it? Yeah, that didn’t exactly happen to me. Over the past several years, I have slowly come to understand this thing people talk about and my Mom’s sweet tooth cravings. It’s ironic that this sweet tooth decided to grace me with it’s presence at a time in life where I really wanted to start creating a healthier lifestyle for myself. I switched to eating real food that was good for me and actually adding to my life rather than hindering it. What’s a girl to do? Life’s all about balance but there are still some foods that just shouldn’t be ingested for the amount of harm it may cause.

This topic is perfect for today since it is one of my very best friend’s birthday who has a major sweet tooth. So, Happy Birthday Madds, this post is for you. 😉
Only being able to bring three kinds of candy if I were stranded on an island with Erika and Shay was a tough decision. I go through phases of loving some flavors more than others but if you’ve followed along with some of my recipes lately, peanut has definitely been in the mix. Therefore two of my candy choices consist of just that! Kit Kat, Reeses Peanut Butter Cups, and Take 5’s would be my top 3 favorites that I would bring along! I would love to fill this candy jar to the brim with all of them! I also love these to have year round! While you’re eating some of your favorite candy, nothing beats your home smelling festive with this or this throughout the day as well. 😉
Last but note least, today is the last day to enter this giveaway to make something fun for you and your family! What is your favorite Halloween candy?! Happy Wednesday!
