Homemade Marshmallow Recipe (Without Corn Syrup!)

Guys, I am SO excited to share this homemade marshmallow recipe with you. I mean, c'mon: homemade marshmallows? Are you kidding me? How cool is that?!? I have wanted to make these fluffy, white pillows of sweetness for years, but always shied away from them for some reason.

Eggnog Latte

(Better Than Starbucks!) Eggnog Latte

I have to admit that I love my more-than-occasional trips to Starbucks. It feels like such a treat to have a tasty latte prepared just for me. However, the frequency of these trips has increased and my once-beloved "treat" has now turned into an expensive habit routine. So, I started [...]

So I have now been sitting at my computer for a good hour or so. Trying to figure out what to write about this delicious granola recipe I put together this week. And.... nothing. Writer's block. Blogger's block. Block. Arg. Funny thing is that I really want to talk about this recipe. It's amazing. It
