I love these.

I've confessed to y'all my love affair I have with chocolate. 
I'm addicted and I've found something that quenches my need for it and leaves me with 0 guilt.
















Trader Joes Reduced Guilt Brownie Mix.
Oh em gee.
I could definitely use a little reduced guilt added to my food.
These are SO easy and cheap to make.

1. Find your nearest Trader Joes
2. Toss in a couple boxes of their RG Brownie Mix and a tub of their nonfat vanilla yogurt.
3. Pour mix














      Measure 2/3 of yogurt and mix your heart out


















It should look like fudge when you're done mixing























Pour batter in preferred pan.
I chose to make these babies as cupcakes today.
Instead of it making the typical 12 brownies, I made 18 little cupcakes.
I couldn't help myself, I added a little garnish of chocolate chips to each one..
















Pop them in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 minutes and...



















A little piece of heaven in your mouth.
All for 86 calories, well mine were probably 95 due to the chocolate chip garnish.
You can really get crazy and add a little topping..























Eat your heart out.

Goodie Girl Cookie Pop Tarts

Summer is in full swing and Kate and I have a super fun, easy and delicious breakfast or even dessert idea for you to make!  First things first, go find some Goodie Girl Birthday Cake and Magical Animal cookies. They’re gluten free and to die for.  You can make this recipe gluten free by replacing the All Purpose Flour with Gluten Free Flour. Or if you want to skip the homemade dough all together you can use pie crust in the refrigerated section at the grocery store! 
Here’s what I did..

The best iced coffee, ever.

When Chris and I went to Mexico this past winter we quickly become addicted to their  blended espressos. I found myself craving them when we got home so I played around with a couple of instant espressos and ended up making the best iced coffee, ever. 


What you’ll need.  Medaglia D’oro instant espresso Water IceCoffee creamer of your choiceHeavy cream + caramel Trust me on the instant espresso. I tried them all. This is the best. I get it at Kroger. I’ve also heard Walmart carries it as well as trusty amazon. 
Step one.  Get your ingredients out. 

I fill my glass up halfway with water and pour a capful of instant espresso in. 

Mix it real good. 

Time to cool it down. 

Now comes the sweet part. 



This next step is money.  Lordy. 

If you’re feeling really naughty you can add caramel sauce.  Do it. 

If you’ve been wanting the recipe for the BEST homemade caramel ever then you’re in luck.  This is the recipe from my mother in law.  It is life changing. 


Ta-Da!

Ribs are prepped for the oven. 


After 4+ hours in the oven the ribs go on the grill. Toss on a little extra seasoning and sauce for this part.
