Green Monster #6

I feel like kiwis are a fruit that go somewhat unnoticed.  It isn’t a food that most people will run to the store to buy, like I tend to do for foods like pineapples, grapes, bagels, peanut butter, and . . . this list could go on and on, but I’ll just stop there   […]

What???  Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate Shortbread Bars can be healthy?!? Yes!  A butter-free “shortbread” crust comprised of whole grain oats, honey and natural protein powder …  a soft PB filling that is to die for, using natural peanut butter …  a delicious, thick dark chocolate peanutty layer to top it all off. Are you salivating yet? But you know […]

I’m sad to see summer go, but on the other hand, I’m really looking forward to Fall  (mostly because it’s still hot here in Arizona.  It was 97 degrees out today!  And tomorrow, it’s supposed to be 101…  *exhales* I want to see people wearing jackets, not shorts. I want to see people drink hot coffees, not […]

Coffee Creamer #2

Coffee is a major staple in the college student diet…  it just is. Or at least, it is for me anyways.  Just two days ago, I took my first Chemistry exam (woohoo, it’s over!), and just to make sure I was on top of my game the day of the exam, I drank three coffees […]

Yes, a sherbet ice cream!  A hybrid between an icy, sweet sherbet and smooth, creamy ice cream. Surprisingly, making ice cream is getting more fun each new recipe!  First was the Peanut Butter & Jelly Ice Cream, and then my favorite so far, the Spiced Pumpkin & Maple Ice Cream.  Although I’ve gotta say, using […]

I have to admit, I have never been a fan of pumpkin.  I’m sure you are looking at your screen with a look of shock:  wide eyes and eyebrows high.  At those pumpkin-carving block parties, I always used to think this girl was crazy for eating the pumpkin innards and seeds.  I used to think […]

Healthy Jelly Bars

Yum, Yum and YUM! I am currently swamped with homework assignments and I’m prepping (or at least trying to) for the exams just a couple weeks away!  I gotta have some free time though, which I love, because I get to make sweet, delicious food  :)  I have always wanted to make bars like these (it […]

These are not granola bites, and they are not cubed cookies. They are soft, they are chewy.  They are moist, they are tasty. Edit:  they are dang tasty! And they don’t need to be baked!  Who wants to turn on an oven when its 105 degrees outside?  Um, not me.  And probably you too… unless you live […]

I think it’s quite obvious…  I like looove peanut butter!  As proof, I’ll tell you about my PB-filled week: It began Monday, when I made the Peanut Butter Protein Balls I love so much. On Tuesday, I halved my Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie recipe (for my thighs’ sake) and ate it in cookie dough form. On Wednesday, I enjoyed the PB and Maple Bagel Spread. On Thursday, […]
