BUFFALO CHICKEN EGG ROLLS

February 6, 2020

Now this is a genius idea I came up with to use up our leftovers from the super bowl.

I’ll include my favorite buffalo chicken dip recipe as well in case you want to just make these from scratch as a fun and different…

I highly recommend our crockpot because it makes it one pot because you can sear on the oven with the insert, here! I like this chili because it is so light and has a Mexican flair which…

Green Smoothie

Gift Guide: For Him

December 13, 2017

Matt helped me put together this gift guide, so I know its things that men really want! I included a bunch of great ideas, some monogrammable like the Winston Shave Set by Harry’s and the zippo lighter.

If you already gifted the Winston shave set because I recommended it for Valentine’s day here, then the Give Essentials Set…
