Brown Sugar Bacon Smokies

I'm not sure I've ever brought these to a get together, provided them during a football game, or offered a plate during a BBQ that I've heard a complaint about their presents yet… or for that matter, lasted very long at all.

I love them because they are so easy and delicious… Nate loves them because they "man friendly" …

My first problem with them, is that they are double the protein, therefor you are able to pile in twice as many, before realizing you would have been sufficiently happier with a fourth of the amount consumed.

My second problem with them, is that for as easy as they are to make, I never think to make them…

Now that they are blog official, I hope they become one of my top 'go-to's… which I'm pretty sure they will…

Healthy School Snack: Christmas

I use to hate the school's 'no sugar' policy. 

I use the term 'use to' loosely .. 

Honestly, I sometimes.....most times.....every time... give the disapproving squirrelly-eye to the seasonal paper that reminds us parents of such sugar free shenanigans. 

I am, however, thankful for the ways it pushes me to think 'out of the box' in festivusing up any contribution I make the the school's snack table.

Seriously, I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in looooooove, with these cheese stick candy canes and Santa belly motzorella rounds.

Partly, because they are easy, mostly, because they are adorable!

Adult Hot Cocoa

I posted this picture, among many, during a Christmas blog 2 years ago… Since then, I've gotten e-mails, comments, and, thanks to Pinterest, many share…. Although this pictures has been used by many others and claimed as their own, it is not… but can't blame them for wanted to coat tail ride such an impressive image captured of something so great… and simple… did I mention delicious ….

So here I am…. sharing it again, giving it DIY details, and stamping the Goodnyou? name on it and claiming the photo as mine, mine, mine…

As for this idea, it's yours to give, give, give….
…. or drink, drink, drink…
