Winter Warming Tea
I’m such a fan of easy, yummy foods and drinks, and it doesn’t get much easier (or yummier) than this seasonal spiced tea.
In addition to being warming, this tea has zero caffeine, meaning you’ll get energized naturally without worrying about the caffeine crash. It’s also great for your digestion and will make your house smell delish while it’s on the stove.

Healthy — And YUMMY — Rice Pudding
When I was a kid, I loved it when my mom brought home pre-made rice pudding from the store.

So when I discovered a healthy version of this yummy dessert, I was super excited to give it a try. It didn’t disappoint.

Mouth-Watering Latte Variations
