Tell me I’m not the only one who gains, like, 15 pounds over the holidays? I mean, you go to people’s homes and you HAVE to eat what they are serving. You don’t want to be rude, right? Sure, I’ll try your deep-fried turkey. Yes, I’ll eat every holiday cookie you put out on your table. That is what a good guest does. So I’ve decided I’ll keep my party appetizers healthy this year. But just because they are better for you, doesn’t mean they are any less delicious. Here’s how to put out a pretty party spread, to please your guests, and not get you blamed for causing love handles.
Ahhhhhh. Fall is in the air. It’s time to start thinking about those favorite holiday snacks. For years, I waited on my best friend’s mother-in-law to start sending out her coveted Chex Mix. It’s true, not all Chex Mix is created equal. And since I could never bribe the recipe out of her, I decided to create my own. This Chex Mix recipe is crazy good and super savory, which I’m totally looking for in my snack mix. Make sure to pin this for all your holiday snacking needs!

Back to school is an exciting time for families. The kids get to meet new friends and a new teacher, PTA starts up again and there are school activities to plan. And the play date calendar is in full swing. While we usually focus on the snacks for the kids, I just found the perfect playdate snacks for the moms too!
I’m a snack lover. And when I see something new, I have to try it. So when I was walking through a Target on my Palm Springs getaway (Yes, we went to Target. We didn’t have our kids with us, we could wander the aisles. It was glorious!) and saw these Butter Toffee Corn Puffs on the shelf, I had to pick them up! A sweet snack gets me every time! I didn’t open them until I got home and as soon as I did I knew I had to share these with you. They were AMAZING!!! In fact, I snatched them out of my kid’s hands so that I could take a picture of the bag before we finished them off. I had never heard of this company so I looked them up online. This is the only flavor variety they have and these are made with natural ingredients. So that’s awesome! The butter toffee flavor is perfection. The taste is unique, like a way more delicious gourmet version of a Corn Pop. The consistency is that of a Cheese Puff. And you’ll want to eat the whole bag. We sure did. I have looked for these at Targets closer to home and have not found them. But check your chip aisle next time you are there to see if yours carries them. They are also available online (this might be new fave website!!) or at Whole Foods or Sprouts Market. This is not sponsored, it’s just a snack I think you all should know about. Because I like sharing yummy things with you. Let me know if you see these and try these Nuggets!
