Chocolate Cinnamon Roll Churros

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Hershey’s via MomTrends. Whenever I think of a churro, I think of a carnival, fair, or theme park we’ve visited in the past. Those smiley vendors selling those delectable treats beautifully warmed and crusted with cinnamon sugar. It just makes me smile to think of all the […]

Protein-Packed Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Yogurt Spread or Dip

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of General Mills®. The opinions, recipe, and text are all mine. Snacking gets a bad rap. I am a HUGE advocate for it, given I’m pretty passionate about the six small meals a day idea (or, three meals with three snacks in between). I do […]

Mocha Peanut Butter Espresso Shake with Almond Milk and Flax

Oh, hello, you gorgeous thing you. Oh, how I love your sweet peanut buttery and chocolate ways. Adding depth and breadth is the espresso, which just heightens the cocoa flavor, and jazzes things up a bit. A little afternoon pick-me-up, anyone? I mean, come on now – some days, there just has to be chocolate […]
