Oreo Truffle Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars

Tortellini Casserole

Tortellini is always a favorite in my house. Everyone loves it – even the 4 year old! Most of the time, they want it covered in white alfredo sauce but we all know that isn’t the healthiest of sauces. Plus, the traditional tortellini has ham and peas in it and my husband and kids aren’t […]

Two Ingredient “Healthier” Cupcakes

Crockpot Chili

It is an understatement to say that I’m a little obsessed with my crockpot lately. As a matter of fact, I’ve been crockpoting so much lately, that my trusty crockpot that I’ve had for years stopped working correctly. So this past weekend, it was crockpot shopping time!
