Low Carb Pumpkin Pudding {Made with Cauliflower and Stevia}

This Low Carb Pumpkin Pudding is a great way to enjoy that delicious pumpkin flavor you love, while staying on your low carb diet! This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of In The Raw and SheSpeaks. All opinions are entirely my own. Last year, my husband and I started our journey on a keto diet two weeks before Thanksgiving. Our whole family thought we were absolutely crazy, but we had made up our minds that we were going to follow through with it, and we did. We stayed on our keto diet for about 8 months and reached our goal weights. It felt amazing! Now that we have reached our goal weights, we have loosened our belts up a little bit. {CONTINUE READING…}

Old Fashioned Soft Pumpkin Cookies

You’ll love these old fashioned soft pumpkin cookies, just like Grandma made! It’s officially the first day of fall, and I am so excited! I have already been apple picking once this year, but my family is headed back to the orchard again tomorrow. Our local orchard has so many activities going on all the time, that we visit a few times before the season is over. In addition to their bountiful supply of apples and pumpkins, they have squash and flowers available for picking. They also have an ice cream stand, fresh baked apple cider and pumpkin spice donuts, apple cider, goats that my kids just love to feed, chickens, rabbits, a bird cage, a sand box, hay rides, a {CONTINUE READING…}

20 Easy Halloween Treats Kids Will Love!

Check out these super fun and easy Halloween treats kids will love! Halloween is just around the corner, and my kids are already so excited to dress up in their costumes.

Almost every house was decorated with the finest Halloween decorations and there was plenty of candy to be found. My kids are still really little, so it’s nice to be able to just walk up and down one street, instead of having to travel all over the place with them to find Halloween candy.

White Chocolate and Peanut Butter Wheat Thin Cookies

Yesterday, on a whim, I made White Chocolate and Peanut Butter Wheat Thin Cookies, and they were fantastic! My husband tried them when he came home from work, and he said “You have to take this bag away from me, or I’m going to eat them all.” They are seriously addictive! I’ve noticed over the last few years, that people seem to go absolutely crazy over chocolate dipped goodies at Christmas parties. These kinds of treats are usually gobbled up quicker than cookies, pies and that sort of thing. It’s not really a big surprise to me, though, because who doesn’t love some chocolate?! I’ve had Christmas baking on my mind lately, so yesterday I thought I would experiment a little bit {CONTINUE READING…}
