When it comes to pizza I usually make it fresh at home but with the holidays and all it's been hectic but American Flatbread's was a life saver plus it took less than 10 minutes!

Vita Fiber Wild Blueberry Cranberry Sauce (Vegan, Gluten Free)

Hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving, now we all have that favorite dish that is a must at the table am I right? Well today I am going to talk about one of my favorites. It's tart, it's sweet, and makes for a great topping on any sandwich. I'm talking about Cranberry Sauce!

Ever since I was a kid I have always loved cranberry sauce it was what I looked forward to every Holiday especially for those leftovers sandwiches that is. Growing up we always bought the canned cranberry sauce but since then I've made my own and have never bought store bought again to me fresh is better.

How many times have you had a restless sleep leaving you feeling tired and achy the next morning? 
Did you know that it could be your pillow that is causing you to toss and turn all night long?
I am on the Sleep Number Bed and Pillow Solutions mission with Smiley360 and visited a sleep number store to not only learn about them but test out their beds and pillows.

BuckWhat! Foods Noshes !

It all began with Founder Leeann who was born and raised in Klev, Ukraine where buckwheat, also known as gretchka is a popular ingredient that is found in numerous dishes.

Leeann is a hard working mom  of two beautiful children with an abundance of energy and she feels passionate about not only providing herself with nutritious foods but children as well.

Leeann came to the realization when she was short on time the so called "healthy" convenient snacks were anything but containing loads of sugar which inspired her to create her very own nutritious snack using buckwheat finding it to be versatile which is how Buck What foods began!

Buck What! was created to share the great taste of buckwheat and numerous health benefits that all can enjoy!

VitaFiber IMO Prebiotic Fiber Sweetener !

Who doesn't love the warm aroma of cinnamon wafting through the house on a crisp day, especially when they are cinnamon buns!? 

As a little girl each Christmas morning my mom would be in the kitchen baking up a batch of cinnamon buns with the sweet buttery icing on top you know which ones I'm talking about yup the one that woo hoo on the commercial when you poked his belly with the chef hat? Pillsbury dough boy baby that's who! 

The icing on top was literally my favorite part it was sweet, creamy and made Christmas morning extra special.

What I loved was the warm cinnamon sweetness paired with the gooey icing that made the buns chewy with a crispy flaky texture on the outside making them the perfect breakfast and or dessert now paired with coffee of course rather than an ice cold glass of milk.

When the air gets crisp I find myself craving sweets so in the kitchen it is to bake all things sweet especially my all time favorite breakfast food..yup you guessed it CINNAMON BUNS! W…
