Best Thanksgiving Appetizers #Thanksgiving

Clean Eating Peach Crumble

Clean Eating Peach Crumble Well, we’re back at it again!  We’re eating clean and loving it!  I don’t know if y’all remember, but we did this for about 6 weeks last year and lost a ton of weight and were feeling wonderful.  If you have never tried eating clean, you really should.  It is the only eating plan I have ever done that really made me feel great and I am almost never hungry!  Anyway, we’re always trying new recipes and tweaking old recipes to “clean them up”.  This peach

American Flag Cake for Memorial Day/4th of July

American Flag Cake for Memorial Day/4th of July I saw a patriotic cake while surfing the web and knew I needed to try it!  This was SUPER easy and fun to make.
