Marie Callender's Pie & Nutella Frozen Bars Recipe

With the recent cold-front moving through, Marie Callender's Pot Pies are the perfect comfort food to warm one up. I love how quick and easy they are, all I need to do is pre-heat my oven, foil the crust, and throw it in for a little over an hour and dinner is ready! Every Marie Callender's Pot Pie shares and delivers the true sense of homemade. Since the pie itself contains so many nutritious ingredients, I never feel the need to prepare a side dish. However, I wanted to make a fun tasty treat to compliment the pie and satisfy my sweet tooth.

Zaden and I decided to make Nutella Yogurt Popsicle's for a nutritious and delicious dessert. If you know Zaden, he LOVES ice cream and these popsicle's are a much more nutritious substitute to good ol' fashion ice cream. Not only are they more nutritional but we also got to bond and make these together which is always enjoyable (;

Utah Fashion Blogger Market

Hey local Utahns, if you follow me along on Instagram you probably already saw me post about this the other night but just in case you don't I wanted to blog about it (;

This Saturday myself and a few other fashion bloggers will be selling gently used clothing, shoes, and accessories (even some never worn items) at Club Allison in Provo. There will also be a handful of small shops selling items as well! We would love to have you there. Any of my items that don't sell will be listed on my secondhand storenvy store, Dearest Lou Shop early next week.

So mark your calendars and hope to see you there.
Would love to get to know you!

Pineapple and Spinach Smoothie

This week I made a delicious Sweet'N Low Pineapple and Spinach Smoothie as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #SweetNLowStars.
Now that the holidays are over my body is in need of healthier food and drink options. I ended up overindulging and eating way too many sweets and fattening foods towards the end of last year (eek). I have been really working on cleaning up these bad eating habits I developed over the holidays and replacing bad choices with good ones. I really enjoy sweets and smoothies always are the perfect healthy alternative treat to curve my major sweet tooth.

I threw together this smoothie with ingredients I already had in my fridge and pantry and it turned out delicious. I added a bit of Sweet'N Low, my favorite zero calorie sweetener in order to make it extra sweet, just the way I like it (; Zaden and I seriously couldn't get enough of this smoothie and it was the perfect snack in between lunch and dinner yesterday.
