Slow Cooker Easy Breakfast Sweet Rolls

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #WarmUpYourDay #CollectiveBias



Nothing warms up your day more than a delicious warm sweet roll.  One of my favorite things in my recipe box of easy breakfast ideas are sweet rolls.  I remember my mom making cinnamon sweet rolls homemade when I was a kid, she made almost everything from scratch.  She would work in the kitchen for a few hours a day and I have no idea how she had the time or patience with my sisters and I running around.  Let's just say we were very energetic kids ha!

These days I just don't have the time to spend in the kitchen like that, as much as I'd love to.  Our family is very active outside the home with sports, dance, and the gym.  I enjoy the fact that I can run out to Walmart and pick up a couple rolls of delicious sweet roll dough, makes life more simple and is as good as homemade.  Pepperidge Farm Sweet Rolls were available at my Walmart and wow are they good!  I've made them as-is as well as transforming them into something even more phenomenal.  I found mine right by all the other refrigerated dough and refrigerated cookie dough at my Walmart, not too far from the orange juice refrigerators.  I purchased some 100% Florida orange juice to drink with our sweet rolls as well as turn into a glaze for over the top.  If you make this recipe be sure to look for the $1 off coupon tear pad by the orange juice shelf for when you buy both the 100% Florida OJ and the Pepperidge Farm sweet rolls together.

No Bake Yogurt Cookie Bites

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias #MullerMoment


Every day seems to get busier.  I promised myself that this year I would make a little more time for some "me moments".  This could be anything from taking a break to paint my nails to eating a delicious snack while looking through an old favorite cookbook.  Just one moment a day where I can take a deep breath and let go of some stress.

A yummy snack idea came to my mind the other day when I was shopping at Walmart.  I stayed at a resort and spa a couple summers ago and in the spa they served some delicious bars.  I believe the bars were made with peanut butter, oatmeal and some nuts and fruit.  They were so good and I grabbed a few extra to take with me to my room.  I thought that I could make something similar to the bars to have at home and the New Muller Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt would be perfect for my recipe.  Muller Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt is just the right amount of wrong.  The perfect indulgence that we all deserve!

While shopping at Walmart I found Muller Ice Cream Inspired Yogurt that is a better-for-you alternative to ice cream and other treats.  There were three flavors: Raspberry Chocolate Chip, Mint Chocolate Chip, and Vanilla Bean.  All are equally delicious and definitely remind me of my favorite ice cream!  I found these in the yogurt/dairy aisle of my Walmart store right in the middle of all the different yogurts.  There is also a wonderful coupon that I found in my 1/4/15 Sunday paper for $1 off 5 (offer valid until 2/15/15).

No Bake Yogurt Cookie Bites Recipe

Ingredients

1. 8 oz of Muller ice cream inspired yogurt in Vanilla Bean (there will be leftover for a little snack) You can use any of the other flavors if you want to swap! These are 5.3 oz each and a great source of protein.
2. 1 cup natural creamy or chunky peanut butter
3. 2 cups quick cooking oats
4. 1/2 cup honey

**The rest are optional/as you like and amounts may vary but I used them all!  I do recommend adding in at least two additions.  Feel free to add-in or switch out anything you wish.  Maybe you enjoy cashews and dried cherries more ect...  Just be sure to only use six additions maximum or the mix will be too dry.

5. 1/2 cup salted/roasted sunflower seeds
6. 1/2 cup sweetened coconut
7. 1/2 cup 1/4 cup flax seeds
8. 1/2 cup dried cranberries
9. 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
10. 1/4 cup chopped pecans

Directions

1. Pour wet ingredients into a large bowl and whisk to combine
2. Dump everything else in and stir very thoroughly
3. Use a teaspoon sized scoop to portion balls out onto a sheet of wax paper that has been placed onto a cookie sheet.  You may roll the balls if you want them to be more uniform but I like mine as is.  I press into a cookie dough baller tightly and that seems to work perfectly, keeps hands clean too.
4. Set the tray full into the freezer (covered with plastic wrap or more wax paper) for roughly 20 minutes so they set up.
5. Store in a wax paper lined sealed container in the refrigerator.  I like to place extra sheets of wax paper in between each new layer of bites.  I like to use mine up within a week but they usually do not even last that long with my family.

These make excellent snacks on the go or for a quick "me moment".  They are just so delicious!  I even like to enjoy them with a cup of the yogurt we used inside of these, it is the perfect pairing.  You can feel good about eating dessert first!

**Recipe makes around 50 bites

Brown Sugar Apples and Marie Callender's Pies

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #EasyAsPotPie #CollectiveBias


Our family tries to come together every evening for family supper time.  It doesn't always work out perfectly but we try our best.  My husband works long hours plus the kids and I are involved in lots of activities.  Winter is here and the days can be chilly, it is definitely pot pie season and we love that Marie Callender's tastes like homemade.  We can all gather around the table and enjoy a wonderful family meal together.  I can either microwave these if in a hurry or bake when I know I have the time.  I found my pot pies in the frozen meals aisle at Walmart.  I bought pretty much every variety there was.  My favorite is the chicken corn chowder pot pie but they are all so delicious.

#easyaspotpie #collectivebias #shop #ad

Hot buttery brown sugar and cinnamon apples are a great side dish to any comfort food meal.  I picked up a few apples to go along with the Marie Callender's pot pies I had in my cart.  The apples recipe is really simple and I make mine in the microwave but you could do it on the stove top if that's what you prefer.  The sweet caramel-y goodness of the apples goes great alongside a savory, golden flaky Marie Callender's pie.  Each pot pie serves two and so for every pot pie you make just double the recipe.  I make these all the time because they are so easy.

The recipe is easy!  I make mine while the Marie Callender's pies are near the end of their baking.

Brown Sugar Cinnamon Apples

Ingredients (serves 2)
-3 apples of any kind (I chose gala, granny smith, and golden delicious)
-1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
-1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
-1 Tbsp salted butter
-1 or 2 cinnamon sticks (optional)
-1 tsp orange zest (also optional)

Directions
1. Peel apples if you wish or just core and slice
2. Place apple slices into a microwaveable bowl
3. Toss apple slices in the sugar, butter, and cinnamon
4. Microwave at 1 minute intervals for 4-5 minutes until apples are tender
5. Let cool for a few minutes as liquid sugar will be hot and then serve after tossing around a bit and taking out your cinnamon sticks.  Top with orange zest if you have it.

Peach Yogurt Granola Cake Recipe

Am I right when I say cereal is an amazing thing? You can have it for breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinner and dessert!  Cereals are so convenient and I love using them for almost anything.  I've been loving the new Quaker® Real Medleys® granola multigrain cereals.  They have a delicious peach, apple, walnut medley and a cherry, almond, pecan medley.  Both are fabulous!  I've also been loving Quaker® Oatmeal Squares, Quaker® Life cereal, and the Quaker® Simply Granola.  I was able to find my Quaker® cereal at Walmart in the cereal isle but you can find them at most any store that carries Quaker® brands.

I decided to bake a beautiful cake and add some crunch by placing granola over the top.  This cake is phenomenal I tell you, simply phenomenal!  My family adored the moist cake with its crunchy topping.  It's a great dessert or you could even have this for breakfast.

How do you like to snack?  These Quaker® cereals are also really great to take on the road.  You can just fill a baggie or container with a serving and easily snack anywhere.  We love to take a bit of cereal with us everywhere we go.  Baseball games, baton twirling class, rollerskating, soccer practice and games, trips to the park and more.  Cereal keeps us fueled.

A Little Indulgence You'll Need Everyday

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias #LoveV8Protein

#LoveV8Protein #CollectiveBias #ad #shop

I sure have been enjoying my healthier lifestyle!  I had a lot of weight to lose and over the last two years I have successfully lost and kept off 75 lbs!  I do have a goal to lose 50 more but I am taking it slow.  Slow and steady wins the race right?  I have just recently made the decision to join a gym because I figure that working out will be so much easier now that I have shed so many extra pounds.
I heard and read that working out requires a bit more protein to keep the muscles and body fueled.  If you put out energy you need to take healthy energy back in.  That is why I went to Walmart and purchased several packs of the new V8 Protein bars and new V8 Protein shakes.  I found mine in the Vitamins aisle of my Walmart near the health and beauty aisles.

#LoveV8Protein #CollectiveBias #ad #shop walmart

The new V8 Protein shakes wow'd me because they contain 1/4 cup of vegetables in each serving.  I probably never get enough veggies inside of me and so having that addition is appreciated.  I also learned that the sweeteners were simply from: honey, brown rice syrup, and sugar.  The fiber and protein in the shakes and bars comes from: milk, soy, pea, brown rice and quinoa.  The vegetables are from: carrots and sweet potatoes.  The shakes and bars taste so indulgent and come in a variety of six flavors in all. So many good-for-you choices that I love!

So my routine is now to have either a V8 Protein bar or shake before or after my workout.  I drink plenty of water and twice a day I have a bowl filled with some vegetables and/or fresh fruits.  I keep my body hydrated and fueled and I feel amazing!  Even when I am taking a break from the gym for a day or two I will have a V8 protein shake or bar in the car as I am running errands.  I love how easy they are to take along.  I just keep a pack of the delectable shakes cold in my fridge and a box of the bars tucked away in my glove box in the mini van.  No more afternoon head aches or stomach pangs because I forgot to eat something.
