Easy Pumpkin Apple Bread


Hey, everyone! I'm Kami from No Diets Allowed and elated to be contributing to SNAP! I adore this time of year for 3 reasons: beautiful cool weather, college football (Roll Tide!), and it marks the beginning of the holiday season where plenty of time is dedicated to eating! I'm assuming you love to eat as much as I do. So, I have two goals for you and me. First, our waists and thighs will not increase with the holiday spirit because of my recipes.

How to Make Crispy Bacon

How to easily make perfectly crisp bacon with this recipe via @snapconf

I know what you're thinking. "Tauni, you're sharing an entire post about how to make crispy bacon?" Well, the answer is yes. I've come to realize over the last year, that sometimes there are things we know that we simply take for granted. They are small things. They are things so simple, that quite frankly execution is second nature to us. I happen to count writing a press release, speaking in public, pitching sponsors and yes, making perfectly crisp bacon among those things. For you? Well, it might be taking the time to measure while you are baking. The other day, I made some truly … [Read more...]

Pina Colada Mini Donuts

Pina Colada Mini Donut Recipe via @SnapConf

If there's one flavor that deserves to be the official "sip of summer," it's got to be pina colada. There's nothing quite like it on a hot summer day. We've been making coconut pineapple drinks and icy pops for weeks and I thought it was time to take the sugary-sweet taste to a whole new level and pina colada mini donuts were born... So when my friend Vanessa suggested a group of us share mini donut recipes on the same day, taking a yum-tastic flavor and infusing it into a donut really wasn't much of a stretch. Last year's S'mores mini donuts remain one of the most popular recipes … [Read more...]

Easy Five Ingredient Tomato Mozzarella Salad - The fresh, light ingredients make this the perfect summer salad!

Hey you guuuys! I am so excited to be sharing today's post. It's a little bit about Martha Stewart, donuts, a cook book my friends at Macy's and a really super-delicious tomato mozzarella salad - a salad inspired by Martha herself. If we're friends on social media (and I am sure we are, right?) you probably saw the slightly stalker-like posts I shared last week about my visit with Martha... Okay. So I wasn't really that intense (I hope), but I was very excited that Macy's sent out a copy of her latest book - Martha's American Food - and invited me to pop in for a visit to get it … [Read more...]
