I know I’ve mentioned this before but I’m a total TV addict. Reality TV, Dramas, Comedies — I love them all. It seems most of the networks are into their fall programming and I couldn’t be happier. I can’t tell you how many weeknights during the summer I complained about NOTHING being on TV. You would think I’d use the summer to pick up a new hobby or maybe a book but NOPE — I still managed to find something to watch.

This week I’ve been so excited to watch a bunch of new shows! On Wednesday night, one of my FAVORITE dramas is back. Nashville. I can’t wait to see what they do with this season. I’m sure it will be filled with drama and some scandal. Sounds like perfection to me!

Besides being a TV addict, I’m also addicted to a sweet treat after dinner. I can’t get enough of no bake desserts. Mainly because no bake treats are easy and take little time to prepare. I decided to make these Lemon White Chocolate Krispies Treats after seeing a beautiful picture of them in the October Issue of Cooking Light. Cooking Light has a two page spread all about how to dress up the traditional Krispies Treats recipe. Check out the 9 variations and pick your favorite!

Lemon White Chocolate Krispies Treats have a burst of citrus flavor which pairs nicely with the sweetness from the marshmallows. I made these Wednesday afternoon so I would have a tasty no bake dessert to eat while watching Nashville…. well, I ate a couple krispies treats while taking photos, a few more while writing this post and then one more while making dinner…. by the time Nashville is ready to air, I’ll be lucky if there are any left! Lemon White Chocolate Krispies Treats are so good –  be ready to eat more than one!

    NASHVILLE!!! Meghan, you are a girl after my own heart. I wish I could have watched the season premier while eating a whole platter of these lovely treats! I just started watching The Blacklist with James Spader. Definitely better than I thought it would be. I am also so glad that Parenthood is back!

    I am a total TV addict too and I spent the entire summer grumbling how there was nothing on TV. (I did find a few new shoes to watch ;p). But now that fall is here, I am so excited! These treats would be great for my next Grey’s Anatomy night!
