best of 2016!

The best of 2016 is here- Happy New Year!

This past year has been pretty amazing. We have been busy creating, renovating and loving on our new Puppy, Brody. 

Eating amazing food, enjoying the outdoors and taking time for ourselves all were a priority in 2016.  
Looking ahead to 2017 we are excited to continue our home renovations (kitchen is up next!), create and share beautiful food with you, define our home style, not take life to seriously and enjoy every minute of everyday with intent. 

Today I am sharing with you the top ten most viewed recipes on SMBP - many of these also make my all time favorites list.

I wish you all a happy, healthy + delicious New Year!

crispy peanut butter cups // toasted coconut

Crispy PB Cups
Peanut Butter Cups are one of Justin's most favorite candies. He can polish off a bag without thinking twice. Peanut Butter Cups are super easy to make, for an added twist I included some of his favorite chocolate crisp cereal and toasted coconut.

I was able to enjoy a total of one peanut butter cup - the rest were gone within 2 days of making this batch.

The perfect little sweet treat for New Years Eve.

The Holidays // cookie box

(10 of 12)
Cookie Boxes, hands down is my most favorite part of Christmas. I love coming up with a new assortment each year, anything goes from cookies, to truffles to little dessert bars + bites. I always inlcude a combination of homemade and semi homemade treats. Think chocolate dipped Oreos with sprinkles, chocolate dipped apricots with pistachios, white chocolate peppermint cookies.

All these goodies are tucked into a cute little box with a homemade tag tied up with ribbon. I love passing out my tower of cookie boxes to friends and family. 

It is a simple little gift given with lots of love.

Today, I am sharing with you my favorite Holiday Cookies + Treats.
