Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Party Chippers

Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Party Chippers

Feb 9, 2015 | Cookies, Sponsored | Tags: , , ,

My Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Party Chippers make the perfect sweet treat for any party!  Sweet, salty and peanut buttery delicious.

Thrilled to partner with SKIPPY this today to create a fun Oscar inspired recipe with their Limited Edition Salted Caramel Peanut Butter.  Just the name alone had me drooling.  I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it. Let me tell you, it did NOT disappoint.
My mom and I were baking together when I opened my new jar of Salted Caramel SKIPPY.  We both found a spoon to sample and quickly agreed it is amazing!  Not too sweet but just the right about of caramel to the already perfectly salty sweet peanut butter.  You are in for a treat!
Did I mention it makes the perfect party cookie?!  Obsessed with these!
Hope you enjoy!

Lemon Chicken Quinoa Vegetable Soup

Lemon Chicken Quinoa Vegetable Soup

Jan 27, 2015 | Chicken, Skinny Palate, Soups and Stews | Tags: , , , , , ,

My Lemon Chicken Quinoa Vegetable Soup is sure to warm you right up! Packed with chunks of chicken and lots of vegetables.

I know I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again….I can’t get enough soup when it’s chilly outside.  I’m talking 75 degrees in AZ, ha!  I really enjoy soup all year round, but there’s something so comforting about enjoying a nice bowl in the winter months.

To simplify, I used the chunk canned chicken from Costco and some leftover quinoa I had in the refrigerator.  A rotisserie chicken would be great for this soup too.  It took no time at all to prepare.  Hearty and comforting, hope you enjoy this healthy new soup recipe!

I have so many fun memories of getting together for the Superbowl.  I have to admit, the highlight for me is having a fun assortment of party food.  I love the excitement of the game, but who am I kidding….I never know what’s going on.  Sad that I was a cheerleader in high school and never knew football rules, lol!  One of these days I’ll get my husband to fill me in!
