You don’t have to live in New Orleans or wait for Mardi Gras season to enjoy a King Cake. My friend Caryn shared this recipe with me, and I have made it twice already. It tastes like a cinnamon roll, and I modified the icing to include cream cheese. My family and friends love it! Now that I found a recipe that I can easily replicate, I can make it year-round or whenever we want. It is definitely a crowd-pleaser.

Disclaimer – For this product review, I partnered up with Moms Meet. All opinions are my own. I have been wondering what is so great about the Vitamix.

It was easy to do with only two ingredients (sugar and heavy cream) and two step instructions. Now I can make homemade whipped … READ MORE >>
It’s Back-To-School and back to meal planning! Planning weekly meals for the family is often challenging for me, because I only want to make one grocery run for the week. I can’t spend too much time putting it together so if I am missing an ingredient for the recipe, I will have to find a new one or improvise. Yesterday, I was running around town with my sister all day and had to rush home to prepare dinner. Luckily, I had items on hand to make two quick and easy dinners from freezer to table in less than 30 minutes. My sister helped, and they turned out great!
Cheesecake is a summer classic dessert that we all love. If you are looking for a lighter version alternative, try making it with ricotta and Neufchatel. Neufchatel is a creamy white cheese made from whole or partly skimmed milk in Neufchâtel, France. I found everything I needed to make this recipe at Smart & Final Extra! This dessert is super easy to make. It’s light, has low carbs, and gluten-free.
