4 Step Sweet Butter Almond Bars

Two summers ago, I attended the United States Dairy Education and Training Consortium. This is an intensive six week program that focuses on providing a sustainable solution to incorporating excellent people with a passion for the Dairy industry into serving it. We would spend time on a dairy farm each weekday and went to a different one almost every single time. The very last dairy farm that we spent time on we were greeted by the family that works and owns it and they brought us something super tasty! They had just gotten these 4 Step Sweet Butter Almond Bars out of the oven and they were nice and toasty. I just HAD to get the recipe, and now I get to share it with you!

DIY Friends Themed Valentines Day Cards Printables

I’ve always been a huge fan of the TV show Friends ever since I’ve known it existed. It started a little before my time and then of course, I had to wait a few years to truly get all of the hilarious innuendos. I remember the first episode that I ever watched was the very first thanksgiving that my now fiance had chosen to spend with the whole family. (He didn’t run away then, and he’s stuck around ever since despite all of the craziness, so I guess that you could say he’s a keeper.) For anyone who has spent that holiday watching Friends they know that it’s an all day thing and it’s all of the episodes that have captured that day over the years. My love for Friends started here and continued over the years with me getting the full boxed season for Christmas (which was the BEST GIFT EVER!) So for all of the Friends aficionados that enjoy this throwback still, I decided to put together these DIY Friends Themed Valentines Day Cards Printables just for you!

Pull At Your Heartstrings Rice Krispie Treats

I know that with Valentine’s day coming up, it’s the time of year that people are looking for something cute and easy to give to those they care about.

One of my favorite desserts to eat and take to class when I was growing up has been Rice Krispie Treats. This is an easy spin on a really quick classic dessert that makes these great Pull At Your Heartstrings Rice Krispie Treats which are perfect for any class or break room to join in the festivities.

Valentines Day Mini Churro Bites

My favorite time of the year spreads from late September through to Christmas day. It starts with Fair Season. My experience with Fair is probably different than most others because I was blessed enough to show dairy heifers in high school. Rather than focusing on the rides I primarily would be taking care of our cattle. The smell of sawdust mingled with fair food always takes me back, particularly – the smell of sweet bread and cinnamon. You’ve guessed it – Churros. Also, I love funnel cake and will usually get that at the bare minimum to kick off the week. In an effort to give women what they ACTUALLY want for valentine’s day instead of the standard chocolates and flowers (because even though those are nice, these are way better) I wanted to show you how to make these Valentines Day Mini Churro Bites!

Brown Sugar Candied Bacon Bouquet

Valentines day will be here soon, and I don’t know about you but I feel like sometimes men can be pretty hard to buy for. Yes, there are some things that your significant other may want that are pretty specific. You should probably know what those are, but a great food supplement is always super handy. You could be that person that just gives candy – but where’s the originality in that? Give him what he really wants – a Brown Sugar Candied Bacon Bouquet!

Classic Crunchy Jalapeno Poppers

Jalapeno poppers speak to my soul! They’re a favorite appetizer along with chips, queso and salsa at my house. My favorite thing they typically go with would definitely be tacos, but really even for more classic get together food like burgers they’re a great way to welcome in your guests. It really compliments chilled appetizers nicely and the best part is, they only take 20 minutes to make. When you’re crunched for time, this is a GODSEND! That’s why I wanted to share with you today how to make Classic Crunchy Jalapeno Poppers.

3-Way Superbowl Fry Bar

As you know, Superbowl Sunday is tomorrow! If you’re like me, that probably makes your skin crawl because you may have actually done nothing about getting supplies together. There were quite a few people that were ready to go earlier in the week. Seriously, when it’s busy at Walmart at 7:00am in the morning you can probably guess that a holiday is near. In fact, the cashier admitted to my fiance and I that it was probably busier the week of Superbowl than the week of Christmas. #PrioritiesforAmericans! Anyhow, I know that burgers and fries are pretty standard fare at Superbowl parties but if not, fries are ALWAYS a nice addition, so without further ado here are some sauces/combos you can easily throw together to make a 3 Way Superbowl Fry Bar!
