Stonyfield Farm Tour

Stonyfield Farm Tour























Earlier this month I was given the opportunity to travel to Vermont to be a part of the 2016
Stonyfield Farm Tour.  This was my first visit to the state of Vermont and the weekend was
one that I will never forget!  My love for the Stonyfield brand has never been stronger and
I am proud to partner with such a wonderful, caring company!

Zucchini Pizza Bites

Zucchini Pizza Bites





















My parent's garden is going strong and my mom has been supplying me tons of zucchini.
I have been freezing zucchini for soup this fall and making veggie quesadillas and
chocolate chip zucchini bread too.  I love zucchini so much and would love for you to send
me your favorite zucchini recipes!

Homemade Watermelon Ice Pops

Remember when you were a kid and you begged your mom to buy those freezer pops
that came in a big box filled with long plastic tubes of colored sugar water?? They
probably weren't the healthiest treats to have around, but boy were they good on a
hot summer day!

Almond Butter Yogurt Crunch Parfaits






















As I write this post, I am on my way to Vermont.  I still can't believe that I am one of ten
bloggers chosen to attend the 2016 Stonyfield Farm Tour!  We will be touring organic
farms in and around Stowe, VT to learn about organic farming and why it is so important.
Growing up on a farm, it will be interesting to see how organic farms differ from the
traditional farms in my area of Virginia. I am so excited for this trip and I can not wait
to share it with all of you!  I will be posting lots of photos on Instagram and Facebook,
so follow along and join the fun!

Skinnygirl No-Bake Mini Chocolate Caramel Pie

This post was sponsored by Skinnygirl as part of an Influencer Activation.
I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

Skinnygirl Sparklers





















I have been a fan of Skinnygirl products for quite a while, so when I was offered the
opportunity to try Bethenny Frankel's new line of Sparklers, Liquid Water Enhancers,
chocolates, mints and coffee I was all in!

Veggie Quesadillas

Several months ago my boss took me out to lunch to a restaurant in Roanoke, VA
called The Village Grill.  The restaurant is owned by one of his former students, so
we thought we would stop by to say hello and grab a bite for lunch.  Unfortunately
Nathan, the owner, wasn't there at the time, but we stayed for lunch anyway and I'm
so glad we did! The service was great and the food even better!

Vegetable Quesadillas with zucchini





















I ordered the veggie quesadilla, which was filled with grilled squash, zucchini, mushrooms,
onions, peppers and cheddar cheese.  It was delicious!  I love zucchini, so I made a mental
note to try to recreate The Village Grill recipe at home.
