Gluten-Free Treat Idea: Rickaroons: Enjoy Your Sweet Treats without Guilt [Review + Giveaway]

A few weeks ago, I had the chance to try out some amazing macaroons by this place called, "Rickaroons" and I can't wait to tell you about it. It started by a guy going gluten-free who wanted a cookie too. I totally have been there! And he also wanted to make the gluten-free treat pretty healthy too. And that's not an easy balance to find. ( Read more about how Rickaroon got started here! ) Rickaroons are a flourless experience, which I prefer in my gluten-free treats. I also am so loving the macaroon experience of these treats as well and I think it's something you can buy without feeling guilty at all! I had the chance to try a variety of flavors - Chocolate Blonde, Mint to Be, Mocha and Megaroon. I have to say that of all the flavors I tried, my favorite is a toss up between Mocha and Mint to Be. I love the zing of coffee mixed in with the mocha flavor but I love the spark of mint mixed with the chocolate of Mint to Be. The texture to the "Rickar

Gift Ideas: Hallmark's 1000 Piece Puzzle That Distracted Me From My Arm Fracture! [My Review]

I had forgotten how much I enjoyed puzzles. But back in January, as I was walking to my bus stop, I slipped on a patch of black ice and ended up fracturing my left arm. That hurt SO badly. The days following I ended up getting a package from Hallmark featuring this adorable and colorful 1,000 piece puzzle. I was pretty excited about this but thinking to myself, "How much can I enjoy a puzzle with my arm fractured?" Well once the pain subsided and I felt better, I started piecing together the puzzle. I put the snow section together, than the hot air balloon, then the edges, and then over the last several weeks things just started coming together. On my own, this took about five weeks which only took me long because I would usually sit for about a half hour at a time. I now can say I have a renewed love of puzzles! Not only was this a lot of fun it complete distracted me from my arm fracture! How fun is that? If possible, in the near future, if you are puttin

My Favorite New Yogurt - Whole Milk Grassmilk Yogurt [Review + Giveaway]

So I'm a yogurt person in the morning which I usually will stir in honey and blueberries. I tend to go with my one usual brand, either Oikos or Chobani and I've been reluctant to change my brand because hey, it's what works right? Well recently I was contacted by Organic Valley to try their Grassmilk Yogurt and I have to tell you I was wondering...hmmm, try new yogurt? Will I like it? Oh my. Let me tell you. I'm usually a passive yogurt fan. I'm usually not super excited for yogurt, it's just one of those things. It's healthy for me, and it's an easy fix for the morning. But this yogurt has made me really REALLY look forward to breakfast in the morning. Honestly just put a cup of this whole milk grassmilk vanilla yogurt in the freezer with blueberries and a bit of honey mixed in and YUMMMMM. I have to tell you I'm actually looking forward to having my yogurt. I even freeze it a bit and it's so tasty. It isn't too s

Peanut Butter That Makes Your Taste Buds Go Yum!

I had the chance to try some amazing tasting peanut butter called PB Crave! I had the chance to try all four amazing flavors - Choco Choco Peanut Butter Coco Bananas Peanut Butter Razzle Dazzle Peanut Butter Cookie Nookie Peanut Butter The flavor blast for these was intense. I have to confess that when my family and I received this delivery we inhaled the Razzle Dazzle immediately! The Razzle Dazzle featured an amazing flavor combination blast of raspberries, white chocolate and peanut butter. This was so tasty and my absolute favorite flavor. I love making muffins on the weekends and even added a helping of Cookie Nookie Peanut Butter to the mix and it turned out so good! The different flavors made me feel as if I was treating myself and it was so fun to indulge a bit. I felt even less guilty because its gluten free, with no syrups hydrogenated oils or artificial flavors and so much more. Read more about this tasty peanut butter here. Overall, I think this it's
