Dear 2017

2016 was definitely not the year I thought it would be, but I've learned a lot. I've built new relationships that I hope grow into lifelong friendships. I have more confidence and respect for myself. I know a little bit more about what I want and deserve. More than anything, 2016 has made me more optimistic about the future.  I can't wait to graduate and move onto college. I have a good feeling that 2017 will be a year of growth and triumph  (hopefully I'm not jinxing it). I have a lot of excited things planned! As I grow, I get to  know myself a bit more. I'm constantly changing and growing. I am most excited to meet Mia at 18 (I'm so stoked to be able to say I'm finally an "adult"). I know she's going to be something amazing! I have nothing but high hopes for the new year!
Peace Out 2016

Apple Nachos

Hey Lovies!

Recently, I've been trying to find a snack that satisfied my sweet-tooth, but wasn't too unhealthy.  These apple nachos are the perfect middle ground! I get to feel a little bit more healthy because of the Granny Smith apples and walnuts, but get my chocolate fix with the Nutella.

First, I just cut the apple in the medium sized slices.

After the apples are cut, it's time to pipe on the Nutella. 

You can definitely use a piping bag for this part, but if you're like me and didn't have one on hand, you can scoop the Nutella in a plastic ziplock bag. Try to keep the hazelnut spread in one corner so that you don't make to much of a mess. This will also make it easier to pipe.

Once you've put your Nutella in the bag, get to piping! 

After you're done piping on the Nutella sprinkle on your nut of choice and you're done!

What You'll Need:

1 Granny Smith Apple
Walnuts (Nut of your choice)
Piping Bag
