Rice Krispie Treats 12 Ways

August means back-to-school and school means rice krispie treats – it’s simple math really. When I was in elementary school few kids had crazy food allergies like today, so it was always exciting when one of my classmates had a birthday and their parents sent along a classroom treat to celebrate. My favorite was always rice krispie treats. I loved their texture and the sticky way they pull apart, and I still do. Check out these twelve recipes for some creative takes on the classic!

Muesli 12 Ways

Muesli, aka raw oatmeal, came into my life several years ago on a business trip. I was looking for the healthiest option at the hotel’s grab and go breakfast and went for it, having no idea what I was eating other than cold oatmeal. But I really liked it and noticed how it kept me full for a long time, atypical for breakfast foods and my body. I’ve since made muesli for myself and am always looking for ways to mix it up and take advantage of seasonal fruit to add in. Check out these twelve recipes and let me know, are you a fan?

Easter Stuffs

This year Easter is going to be exceptionally low-key in my family. One person will be out of town at the NCAA basketball tournament, a few people just moved into a new house and are still getting settled, and yet a few others have to work. Some holidays are just like that, and this is one of them. I’ll still be dyeing eggs Saturday as usual and maybe even making a batch of hot cross buns for the first time ever! Love these twenty ideas for fun DIYs and egg decorating below.
