White Chocolate Raspberry Cups

A delicious spin on the traditional chocolate peanut butter cup, these white chocolate raspberry cups are made with just three ingredients!

I also like to ... Continue Reading...

If you aren’t into weight lifting, you’re probably not aware of the new “dead lifts and donuts” trend. Who would of ever thought those two things would go together, am I right? Well apparently it’s a thing, so much so that weight lifters are actually eating donuts while dead lifting. That seems a bit over zealous to me, but hey, who am I to judge? I guess the simple sugars and carbs equal ... Continue Reading...
