No Bake Lemon Truffles

Just in time for a simple but sweet Valentine!

These truffles are beyond easy and will blow anyone’s mind! If giving as a gift to your Valentine, I highly recommend cutting the recipe in half so you don’t end up with way too many! Guys, this one could really win you some bonus points this year!

You can try any of the combos below:

  • Golden Oreos with Any Citrus zest (lemon, lime or orange)
  • Mint Oreos
  • Golden Oreos with several drops of extract (almond, rum, coconut, etc) or Essential oil (lavender, peppermint, etc)
  • Regular Oreos with diced cherries (ice cream sundae type, not fresh)

Are you ready?


Happy New Year – Goals, Resolution & 101 in 1001

Happy New Year!

This is why I LOVE the New Year… a new fresh start in ANY aspect of my life that I choose.

Yes, I can start change in my life at any point in time and I often do. However there is just something so mentally refreshing and empowering about a new year, new season or even a birthday (which I consider my own personal new year).

Go ahead. You can laugh… I may sound a little wacky right now but it is what works for me!

Each year everyone talks about their New Year resolutions {which the majority of people do for just the first 2 -4 weeks of the year} but I like the clean slate that I mentally allow myself.

So for now, this new season in life, this new re-energized moment, my desire is to focus on the following:


Last Minute Christmas, Day 3: Preparing our Hearts for Celebrating Jesus

“But the Lord answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and bothered about so many things; but only one thing is necessary, for Mary has chosen the good part, which shall not be taken away from her.”  Luke 10″41-42


Most of us are celebrating Christmas already, today being Christmas Eve; we have dishes to make, gifts to finalize and wrap, rooms to prepare, places to go and people to love. This entire month really has been filled with that type of stuff and while none of it is bad, let’s take a step back and reflect on why we celebrate today and tomorrow.

In Luke 10:41-42, Jesus tells Martha she’s lost her focus. He was not concerned with having good food or a clean home. All He really wanted was her attention.

Interestingly enough, Martha was even becoming agitated at Mary for her lack of help around the house {hmm… this seems to sound familiar}, enough to even express so to Jesus. But he lovingly redirected Martha to what was really necessary.


Last Minute Christmas, Day 2: Quick Gifts

Hi Friends, I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s Christmas treats and recipes! Now on to day two…

I keep remembering a few people that I want to bless with a gift this Christmas and as of right now I just don’t have anything ready to go. So here are a couple gift ideas that are easy to pick up at the (very busy) stores and put together just in time! Enjoy!

Come back tomorrow for the final Last Minute Christmas post – a Christmas devotion…


Grab a premade cupcake mix (a box, bag or tin will do!), some sprinkles (or other topping) and some seasonal cupcake liners! I found these small containers at the dollar store to package the sprinkles in and simply stacked ‘em up to wrap them in some basket bags (also found at the dollar store).


Last Minute Christmas Day 1: Treats & Recipes!

Christmas has completely snuck up on us this year and while I’m so excited for it to be finally be here, I still am trying to just enjoy the sweetness of the season.

For the next three days I will be posting some last minute Christmas ideas

Saturday: Christmas Treats & Recipes
Sunday: Christmas Quick Gifts
Monday: Christmas Blessings (Be Still… and know that HE is God)

Normally November & December are my craziest months of baking! But this year with our funds being lower than usual, I have held off until closer to the holidays. Check out some great recipes that are sure to warm your home up with some sweetness!
