Crunchy Oatmeal Peanut Butter Oats ‘n Honey Bars

Yup! Just like Nature Valley’s, but better! Now I know I posted these copycat Nature Valley Oat’s ‘n Honey Bars a few months ago, but those were just the original. I mean we love the original over here, but we equally love the peanut butter. Really though, did you think we wouldn’t?  They’re sweet, crunchy peanut […]

Crockpot Carnitas Tortilla Burrito Bowl

I have a confession. I really don’t like my slow cooker. Maybe it is just my very cheap, one setting crockpot or maybe I just hate cleaning out the huge bowl. Yeah, that’s probably it. I dread cleaning out that bowl.
