Happy Sunday guys! I hope you all have been having the best weekend! This week in Utah we had our first real snow fall. The kids loved playing in the snow all weekend and it was so fun to experience their excitement. Due to the colder weather we have stayed extra bundled up and the kids love to warm up with some hot chocolate after being outside, can you blame them?! I found some really yummy recipes on pinterest that I’m obsessed with – I can’t wait to try them all!

Peanut Butter Whipped Cream
  1. In a large mixing bowl on high speed (with whisk attachment if using a stand mixer), beat together the cream and peanut butter until it starts to thicken.
