It was pretty hard to resist popping these into my mouth before I photographed them. Luckily, the process for making them only takes about 20 minutes from start to finish.
Are you going to give this healthy recipe a try?

healthy homemade salad dressings!

I LOVE healthy alternatives to the common salad dressings. I can say I LOVE the Ranch dressing alternative and about 90% of the time we end up using the Olive Oil and Lemon recipe, just using Limes instead, its AMAZEBALLS>

Oatmeal, almond butter, chocolate and sea salt cookies

I just loved this Gluten free recipe that I found on a blog that I enjoy. Had to re-post and share it with you all! 

3 Eggs
1 Cup of Brown Sugar
1 Cup of White Sugar
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
1 Teaspoon of White Corn Syrup
2 Teaspoons of Baking Soda
1 Stick of Butter, Melted
1.5 Cups of Raw Unsalted Almond Butter
4.5 Cups of Oatmeal [I use Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Oats]
1 Cup of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chunks
Sea Salt Flakes

Mix together all of the ingredients listed above until just combined. Use an ice cream scoop to form uniform balls, place on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper and then lightly press on the top of each cookie to slightly flatten them. Sprinkle each cookie with the sea salt flakes and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Ace comback moment a la Lauren Conrad

Reality TV star Lauren Conrad may not be the first person to spring to mind when you think of ACE comebacks. So I was pleasantly surprised to see her deliver this sharp quip to an awkward, SEXIST question that some men seem think is somehow charming (??). Just, no......

A. Men.
Love ya girl. And no apparently it was a caller who asked her this question not SWAY sitting next to her. He high fived her for her whitty responce.
