Mint Berry Fruit Roll Ups

Minty Berry Fruit Roll Ups

I can’t believe #mysterydish has been going on for a full year! 

This has been one of the most fun projects that I’ve done since working on this blog and absolutely love all the wonderful blogging ladies that are apart of it too! To celebrate #MysteryDish’s one year anniversary we have a fun giveaway for a cookbook…so don’t forget to enter below! 

This month Andi from The Weary Chef gave us another great list of secret ingredients to create a dish of our own. Head on over to her cute blog to see the full list of ingredients along with some super easy dinner recipes and lots of yummy inspiration. 

Mint Berry Fruit Roll Ups

For these delicious fruit rolls I used 3 ingredients from the list that Andi gave us: blueberries, agave nectar, and mint

I never knew how easy it was to make your own fruit rolls. 

Most basic fruit rolls only need 2 ingredients; fruit and sweetener

If you want to add most flavor and dimension you just add what you like. These are packed with both strawberries and blueberries and an natural sweetener in agave nectar plus the addition of fresh lemon juice and mint make these TO DIE FOR! 

Both my hubby and kiddo devoured these snacks! I plan to make a few more varieties in the future because they are so yummy but secretly healthy and good for you :)

Don’t forget to check out all the other amazing dishes that were created this month by visiting some of the other blogger’s!

Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

Orange Choco-Chip Cookies

So here in Indiana this was the first week of school!?!

What’s up with that!? Yuck I say, yuck!

I am holding onto summer with a firm grip until the first day of fall pries it from my fingers, dramatic? That’s how I roll

I feel like we never started school till at least the last day week of August, August was never part of the school year growing up.  

I needed at least 3 full months too have any ounce of excitement for school in me. When did do your kiddos start school this year? I’m glad I have at least 2 or 3 more years with no school for my little

Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies with Orange Glaze

Our fair just finished last week and these are the cookies that I made for the bake-it competition.

The main ingredient was orange and I was so happy because the couple hours before and after I made these it filled my house with the wonderful fragrant of oranges, such an under-rated fruit

These cookies are filled with orange zest and orange juice and topped with a sweet orange glazed that is also speckled with orange zest

These are the type of cookies that I want to send in the mail to my friends and family, they are so good and a little more special than just plain chocolate chip. The orange and chocolate combo sends them over the edge!

Orange ChocoChip Cookies


 I love flavor combos that are perfect together like orange and chocolate. . . what’s your favorite flavor combo?

Does your county put on a fair? Or do you just stick to going to the state fair?

CONFESSION TIME: When I lived in Illinois, we went to the Illinois State Fair because Christina Aguilera was performing! It was an epic concert and I was totally obsessed
