Caramel Latte Cupcakes

Coffee flavored cupcakes and caramel buttercream frosting topped of with finely ground coffee make these Caramel Latte Cupcakes every coffee lover’s dream! I made these sweet and tasty treat for my birthday last week, and they were amazing!   The only sad part was since I am on a diet I only got to enjoy one, but it will be worth it, because we leave for Disney in ten days! Which means I still have a few pounds I would like to lose. I sent them into my husbands work though! Everyone said they were great there too, so now it’s just you who needs to try them!   Also I think it is important to mention that I had…

3 Ingredient Caramel Sauce

3 Ingredient Caramel Sauce

I definitely LOVE caramel. Like a lot. I love caramel in my coffee, ice cream, on waffles…yeah. I figured it was about time I learned how to make my own caramel, plus my birthday was coming up! So I scoured the internet for recipes but didn’t find one that could utilize ingredients that were already in my kitchen. On a whim I made a recipe loosely based on some proportions I had found online, and viola! I got this super dark and rich caramel sauce that is full of flavor! I also ended up using this caramel sauce to make a frosting for my birthday caramel latte cupcakes (recipe coming soon). Plus did I mention there’s only 3 …

100 Calorie Smoothie

100 Calorie Smoothie

It may be hard to believe, but I have found a way to make a 100 calorie smoothie that is both delicious and nutritious! It is also virtually allergen free (as far as I can tell) because there is no dairy, nuts, wheat, or soy! Which also makes this smoothie vegan, so pretty much anyone can enjoy its deliciousness! Now this smoothie is not meant to be a meal substitute or anything like a normal smoothie would be, more of a snack of a part of a meal. It is only 100 calories after all! I usually have one of these smoothies in the morning while I drive to work, after having some oatmeal in the morning. It also makes the perfect&…

BLT Salad with Homemade Avocado Vinaigrette

BLT Salad with Homemade Avocado Vinaigrette

This BLT salad is a twist on the classic sandwich, made into a super filling and delicious meal! Bacon, kale, spring mix, and tomatoes make up the BLT, add some cheese and dressing to make it complete. This recipe is seriously one of my favorite salads because it is filling, yummy, and it has bacon. Bacon makes everything better, right?!? You will need to cook the bacon in this recipe, so if you want to use up that bacon grease check out this recipe for scallops and bacon cream sauce. Such a great way to use up the grease instead of just tossing it. You can even just make the bacon cream sauce which I enjoy eating over pasta! I …

One Pan Scallops and Bacon Cream Sauce

One Pan Scallops and Bacon Cream Sauce

Cooking using only one pan is probably one of my favorite ways of cooking. Less dishes is always better, especially when the meal turns out as good as this one! These scallops seared in bacon grease and smothered in a bacon cream sauce are every seafood lovers dream come true! These little bites of heaven are seriously so good, I was sad that I only got to eat four. The good news is I had ton of bacon cream sauce left over, so I plan to use it on some pasta. I have a feeling it is going to be just as good in that dish! In addition, since none of strips of bacon are actually in the sauce, I …
