Perfect way to start out your day!

I am a huge fan of breakfast, but I don't always have time to whip up a big one. When I do have a little bit of time, I like to pop some Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Swirl bread into the toaster! After it's lightly toasted, I like putting a thin layer of butter on top of it and drink it with a large glass of milk. It's the perfect treat to get my day started off on the right foot. Also, if I have a tad bit more time this bread is AMAZING for french toast. So, the next time you want to whip some up, try using cinnamon bread, because I doubt you'll ever go back to your boring wheat bread!

A Cool Pick-Me-Up

It's that time of year when the sun is hot and the weather is warm, causing you to want something cool and refreshing. When I'm looking for that certain treat to cool down with, it's Breyers Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. It is absolutely delicious and isn't heavy at all, which is perfect for those hot spring days. I especially enjoy this ice cream, because most of the time you have to let ice cream thaw a few minutes before you can dig in, but with Breyers you can eat it right out of the freezer!

A Perfect Dessert

One of my favorite after dinner treats are cookies, especially fresh ones. I do not have the time to make cookies from scratch, so Pilsbury's Deluxe Chocolate Chip Cookies are the way to go! They only take about 14 minutes and come out warm, fresh, and ready to eat. You can also make as many as you want at a time, which is great. These cookies are the best thing ever, especially when you need a quick pick-me-up!

Nature's Candy

I LOVE strawberries! They're the perfect healthy treat to have for dessert with any meal. My favorite thing to do is cut them up and put just a sprinkle of sugar over them, although they're really good without the added sugar. So, the next time you want a healthy treat, cut up some strawberries to have with lunch or just as a snack!

Who knew?!

The other day I came across something awesome...Dark Chocolate M&M's!!! I'm not a huge fan of the milk chocolate or peanut ones, but to my surprise the dark chocolate one's were quite delicious. On the bright side, they're healthier for you, because they're dark chocolate. So, the next time you need a little treat, try dark chocolate M&M's, because they are DELICIOUS!

The PERFECT Mid Day Pick-Me-Up

Whenever I'm past the peak of my day and I need a little bit of a boost my favorite thing to reach for in the fridge is an ice cold PEPSI! I realize pop isn't necessarily the best thing for you, but to me there is nothing that is more refreshing and delicious as a can of Pepsi. It gives me that little jolt of energy I need to get through the rest of my day, while having the taste of perfection.

Favorite Weekend Treat!

In my opinion Breakfast is BY FAR the best meal of of the day! It not only gets you off on the right foot, but it also contains the most delicious choices. My favorite breakfast item to make and to eat is chocolate chip pancakes. They're pretty much the best thing EVERRRR! Considering I don't get up early enough to actually prepare pancakes during the week, I love to make them on the weekends. All you have to do is treat them like you would just regular pancakes, but after you've poured the batter onto your skillet add a few or a lot of chocolate chips on top of your cooking circles, and there you have it! The perfect pick-me-up to get your day started off right!
