My Parmesan Rosemary Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Pizza is a family favorite. Enjoy!
It’s always a pleasure working with Land O’Lakes to bring you my newest recipe. This one deserves a standing ovation. This pizza has got all of my favorite ingredients that makes the house smell like a dream. Roasted Brussels Sprouts and crispy bacon lay on top of my homemade creamy Parmesan Rosemary sauce. You don’t want to miss this one!
I am so excited about the Land O’Lakes called Pin a Meal, Give a Meal Campaign. This program is amazing, for every Land O’Lakes recipe that is pinned or re-pinned between March 28 and May 1st, 2014, the Land O’Lakes Foundation will donate $1 to Feeding America.
Be sure to help us reach our goal to donate 2.7 million meals. You can pin my signature recipe, Parmesan Rosemary Brussels Sprouts and Bacon Pizza to contribute 9 meals to Feeding America.

My White Chocolate Lemon Poppyseed Blondies are perfect for Spring Time entertaining!
Lemon poppyseed is one of my favorite combinations. Seems to always be a sweet and delicious cake of some sort. I decided to turn that combination into one delicious blondie if I might say so myself. It’s dense, chewy and lemon poppyseed delicious.
Dust with a little powdered sugar and you’ve got yourself a beautiful dessert to serve to family and friends.

I’m excited to turn the time over to my husband today who is the fitness guru of the family. He’s also my trainer at the gym, no matter how much I kick and scream With all of my recent travels, I made him promise to make me watch what I eat and workout like a mad woman for the next 6 weeks. He’s sharing a little of what we’re doing. Take it away Cullen!
Feeding yourself nutrition at the proper time is important for a fit lifestyle. This after workout shake will help in this goal.
Over the last week or so Jenny and I have started a little 6 week challenge. Our rules are: 1 cheat meal a week, 3 sweets a week, and a balance of protein, complex carbohydrates and plenty of fiber. We’re somewhat counting calories, although not religiously. Jenny’s goal is to stay around 1200 cal per day. With this challenge, Jenny has finally given me “trainer” and “nutrition” authority over her life for 6-weeks. It’s basically, me giving her options that she can eat and pushing her harder than she has ever known in the gym.

Ok, so your kids may not be over the moon about eating this for dinner, but can I just say you have got to try this all to yourself.
Have you ever had gnocchi? I just barely had my first gnocchi experience late last year and now I can’t get enough.
A few weeks ago, I ordered and devoured a brown butter gnocchi dish at a charming restaurant in Tulsa called Tavolo and can’t stop thinking about it. I decided to just make a version of my own so I could enjoy these again….so glad I did.

Baked potatoes just got better with my Loaded Broccoli & Cheese Twice Baked Potato!
How good are twice baked potatoes?! I haven’t had one in years but had a craving to create my own this week after reading the latest Food Network Magazine.
So glad I did, what a treat they were. I made a homemade broccoli and cheese sauce that gets mixed into the mashed potatoes before baking again. Seriously I died. Kick your diet to the curb for a day and indulge in these babies!
Let’s take a look at how to make em’!
