Deviled Eggs with Bacon and Chives

I’m a big fan of deviled eggs, especially in the summer! I love the classic deviled eggs like mom used to make, but I thought I’d try making some with a few extra add-ins, like bacon and fresh chives. You just can’t go wrong when you add bacon and chives to a recipe! 🙂

Dark Chocolate-Almond Trail Mix

Trail mix is such a great snack and so easy to make! I make a mix with some healthy ingredients I usually have on hand—dried cranberries, coconut flakes, roasted almonds, chopped dates, and of course, dark chocolate chips! If you’re not crazy about dates, you can chop up your favorite energy or protein bar and use that instead! I often use different chocolate flavors of Lärabars in this trail mix instead of dates! RX BARs would be good too!

Everyone loves pizza, right? This “pizza” is a little different because it’s made with refrigerated crescent rolls for the crust.

Strawberry Fruit Dressing and Dip

The weather is warming up nicely, and when it’s warm outside, I tend to eat more fruit because it’s so refreshing. And when you serve fruit with a dressing or dip, it makes a great warm-weather snack or dessert! This Strawberry Fruit Dressing and Dip is big on strawberry flavor and really good served with strawberries or a mix of fresh fruit chunks—pineapples, sliced bananas, apple wedges…whatever fruit you like!
