It’s November and everyone is thinking about Thanksgiving!  I love Thanksgiving because I get to spend time with family and friends and just have a good time.  There’s running, food and football, what else could be better? It’s just a great time to be thankful for all the great things in life. I am usually responsible for the Thanksgiving meal which is very fun for me.  The not so fun part is coordinating everyone’s taste buds.  Mashed potatoes vs. sweet potatoes.  Turkey vs. ham.  Potato salad vs. mac and cheese. Apple pie vs. pumpkin pie vs sweet potato pie.  It’s… View Post

Fall is a beautiful time. The leaves are changing colors and the weather gets a little bit cooler. This is the time when the clothes get a little baggier and some people may fall into comfort food.

It’s fall and everything is going pumpkin again.  I love pumpkin but we should really enjoy the great selection of apples coming our way.  That’s the reason for the apple three way.  I went sweet this… View Post

This recipe is part of the Apple Three Way Series. The apple pizza isn’t meant to be fancy.  It’s meant to be easy.  I used PB2 again in this recipe because I had it on hand AND it’s something I don’t have to worry about the calories or fat from the peanut butter. You can use peanut butter instead of the PB2 though.  It’s up to you! Also, these apple pizzas are great because you can customize to what you want.  Some people may want shredded coconut on them.  Others may nuts or apple butter or raisins…or all of that.… View Post
