Foodie Fave Five with The Sweets Life

Last Updated on

Does the name of a blog ever intrigue and excite you from the moment you first see it? That’s how it was for me with The Sweets Life. It just conjures up images of all kinds of good things, doesn’t it? And Natalie’s blog absolutely does not disappoint in living up to its name.

Filled with delicious and doable (yet borderline gourmet) recipes, The Sweets Life has a little bit of something for everyone. The tag line states “recipes and pictures of our sweet (and savory) eats.” Every visit is sure to include a great recipe accompanied by some truly fantastic photos. Stop by as soon as you get a chance to see what I’m talking about!

Panzanella Caprese –This salad is perfect for summer bbqs or a light dinner!

Bulgur Salad with Citrus, Toasted Almonds, Feta, & Spinach–I didn’t realize how versatile bulgur could be until I started combining it with different flavor combinations. This was one of my favorites!

Best Ever Homemade Granola–I have yet to find a better granola, store bought or homemade, that tops this one!

Margarita Ice Cream Pie–Combining your cocktail with dessert? Doesn’t get much better than this!

Raspberry Amaretto Trifle–This dessert never fails to impress!

About Natalie: I’m a 20-something gal who was convinced her husband would do most of the cooking once they got married. Instead, I discovered my love for cooking and baking and spend lots of time in the kitchen preparing delicious meals for us and treats to share! When a running injury kept me antsy and bored, my husband convinced me to start The Sweets Life as a way to keep me busy. I’ve since recovered and returned to running (good thing, for all the desserts I showcase on my blog!), but have come to love discovering and sharing recipes through blogging!

Do you want to share 5 of your family’s favorite recipes? I’d love to feature you here, whether or not you have a blog. Please leave me a comment letting me know that you’re interested or send me an email and I’ll be in touch ASAP.
