A picture of snickerdoodle muffins kept popping up all over my Pinterest page just begging me to make them. Could it be, one of my favorite cookies in a breakfast treat?

Stuffed Pepper Soup Bell peppers, chopped tomatoes and lean ground beef are simmered in broth with onions and garlic, then topped with brown rice – everything you love about stuffed peppers, in a soup! I love soup weather – and the convenience of a making a big pot of soup that can serve as several meals.

REAL honey nut bars It amazes me how many 'HONEY' nut bars sold at the supermarket and health food stores contain sugar. Flip over the wrapper and you'll most likely find processed sugar as one of the top ingredients listed. Don't get me wrong.... I LOVE getting my hit of sugar too (macaroons, creme bulee, chocolate.... yum). But when I'm specifically in a health kick mood and want a quick snack with natural basic ingredients I struggle finding something authentic!
