5th Blog-iversary

GIVEAWAY Closed. Congrats Sarah you won!! Will email you :)

Wow, 5 years. I've been blogging for 5 years now which seems kinda crazy if you ask me. I started this thing as a way to keep my recipes organized, and to try to cook healthier fun meals for my then boyfriend, now husband. So here we are! Thanks for reading, commenting, and passing links along. This wouldn't be possible without you all and I want to thank you for being such good cheerleaders for me!

To celebrate I wanted to put together a wicked fun prize pack. It involves a little dash of everything steph chows has to offer you all!

First, off the "life is short eat dessert first" part.
Almond Saltine Toffee: it's crack, and horrible for you. But come on people... everything in moderation! (Will happily switch out the nuts if you are allergic)

Second, from the healthy eating that tastes good side: Healthy delicious granola. The recipe is a little different every time, but it will involve oats, coconut, and almonds for sure. (if you are allergic to something just let me know and I promise not to poison you)

Third, from the crafty side!
A fabulous button closure wrap scaftlette.
