This is certainly not the healthiest of recipes but, we had this during a family weekend a few weeks ago and it has been on my mind since. With fall right around the corner, this is a winning recipe for those family events, football game tailgates or cool fall evening gatherings. It's easy, tasty, and surely one that will leave folks wanting more!
Well, guys I have decided to accept another challenge. This is turning out to be the year of accepting challenges - squat challenge, reading challenge, now eating challenge. I'm a little nervous to see what else is in the works for me this year, but there's nothing like testing yourself and your limits. So, I say bring it on!
I have been hearing non-stop about this Whole30 eating challenge that's been circulating my friends groups and social media. Now, I have never been one to diet or obsess over eating. Those who know me well know that I love nothing more than to grub on some yummy food. So, why I chose to accept this challenge of knocking out some of the yummiest foods from my menu for an entire month? I have no idea! But, here I am coming to the end of my first week of participating in the Whole30 challenge. Boy, it's going to be a long month. I'm excited, feeling good and always willing to accept a personal challenge - it's only 30 days, right?
This months Dine of the Month is one of my absolute favorite Go-To's! My husband adores these delicious treats and would ask for them over just about any cookie. They are very simple to make too which is perfect for that last minute, quick sweets fix.
