Oatmeal Energy Bites

If you have a major sweet tooth like I do, eat one or two of these and you will be satisfied! All healthy ingredients (however they are not low calorie or low carb) but they have to be better for you than eating a bowl of ice cream or a candy bar. These are a…

Traditional Carrot Cake

I was searching for a simple and traditional carrot cake recipe; something without pineapple and raisins! I found one, and it turned out amazing. I made this as a birthday cake for my brother (happy 15th birthday Gabe!!!) and it was a huge hit with the fam. P.S., don’t judge my piping! It is a…
