One fish. Two fish. Red fish. Blue fish. Say! What a lot of fish there are. -Dr Seuss Quoting a beloved childhood author seemed a fitting way to begin a post about a beloved childhood snack: goldfish crackers! Or, as Pepperidge Farm says, they are “the snack that smiles back.”   I drew on the […]

Homemade Peanut Butter Protein Bars

Pin It!

Homemade Peanut Butter Protein Bars… Just five ingredients, and no baking required! These homemade protein bars are packed with wholesome ingredients and serious peanut-butter flavor. Or would you prefer bachelor bar number two: a highly-processed block with an unpleasant taffy-like texture and an aftertaste that long overstays its welcome? Oh yeah, he is a handsome one, with […]

Do not skip this post! True, there’s no chocolate, no peanut butter, and no Oreos. (Your attention is waning already, isn’t it?)

Sorry for the lack of new posts lately… It has been a CRAZY weekend! As I mentioned a few days ago on the blog, my world was turned completely upside-down last week when I received an email from a writer for The Ellen DeGeneres Show, wanting to know if I was interested in being a […]

Healthy Cadbury Creme Eggs?! Today, those ubiquitous Cadbury Creme Easter eggs are receiving a much-needed healthy makeover. Goodbye high fructose corn syrup. Goodbye artificial flavors.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Oatmeal

My kitchen has seen everything from Chocolate Oatmeal to Peanut Butter Oatmeal. And a quick google search for “oatmeal recipes” will show you that I’m hardly alone in my proclivity for oatmeal experimentation. Recipes exist for carrot cake oatmeal, spinach oatmeal, Oreo oatmeal, soy sauce oatmeal… However, sometimes the classic is best. (I’m looking at […]
