Strawberry Twizzlers Krispies

These Strawberry Twizzlers Krispies are brought to you in part by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser to help you make a quick and easy summer treat for your family that is perfect for road trips! As always, the recipe and opinions in this post are my own. #TwizzlersSummer #CollectiveBias Do you have any fun summer plans with your family and/or friends? One of the essential things when heading out on a trip, especially if it’s a long trip, is snacks! I don’t know why, but road trip snacks always seem more fun and exciting than when you have them in a normal day. For some reason that bag of chips or package of Twizzlers Twists taste even better when you’re on the road. Today I have a fun recipe with a little twist on a classic recipe that you can share with family and friends this summer, with all puns intended!

Mango Lassi Parfait (#TheBookClubCookbookCC)

This is an incredibly beautifully written book! I almost didn't get a chance to finish the entire book, but I ended up reading it in its entirely in two days. For this month, I had my heart set on making a mango lassi or a chicken recipe that I had received when m

Pecan Praline Thumbprint Cookies (+ Cookie Love Cookbook Review)

Today I am so excited to share with you a wonderful recipe (Pecan Praline Thumbprints) and a totally inspired cookbook (Cookie Love) by Mindy Segal! Both the recipe and the cookbook have become quick favorites of mine, and I am having a great time working my way through this cookbook. Below I am sharing with you a review and a recipe-- I hope that you enjoy!! The Review: This is not your average cookbook and Mindy Segal is not your average cookie baker. She's a James Beard Award Foundation winner, and she also owns a highly acclaimed restaurant in Chicago called Mindy's Hot Chocolate . This cookbook is definitely not for those looking for Betty Crocker style recipes. The cookies in this cookbook are unique and some of the ingredients are a little more unusual and harder to find. If that doesn't appeal to you, this book isn't for you. That is my disclaimer. That said, I found myself not put off by some of the more unusual ingredients with the exception of
