Cookie Butter Rice Crispy Treats

cookie butter rice crispy treats 001

These rice crispy treats are loaded with cookie butter from Trader Joe's. If you don't have a Trader Joe's near you, you can always use Biscoff spread. You can find it at Wal-mart and it's usually by the peanut butter. I'm finally out of cookie butter and must stock up at Trader Joe's this weekend. Their cookie butter is so good, you can just eat it with a spoon. They also have these Speculoos (sp?) candy bars. It's cookie butter inside dark chocolate. The last of my cookie butter went into ...

S’mores in a Jar

s'mores in a jar 011

I asked for one simple thing for my Birthday from my brother and that was a kitchen blow torch to make some creme brulee. What did he get me? Some highly complicated flame thrower that says Danger: Exremely Flammable. I'm afraid to even use it, because I don't want my house burning down. Well, I tried to use it this weekend to make these S'mores in a Jar. The dang thing wouldn't even work. Got some flame to come out of it once and that was it. My brother was going to look at it next weekend, to ...

Skinny Taco Pizza with Corn, Avocado, and Tomatoes

skinny taco pizza with chive sauce 013

Can we talk about this pizza? This vegetarian pizza with refried beans, tomatoes, corn, avocado and scallions? I'm not even a vegetarian and I loved this pizza! I was debating on whether or not to put some black beans or olives on there for color. If you like black beans or olives by all means go for it. Pizza is awesome because anything goes. Have you ever had Baboli Pizza Crust? It's usually located by all the pizza ingredients. The whole wheat pizza crust is actually really good and I ...

Skinny Lemon Blueberry Cheesecake Bars

skinny cheesecake bars 003

Have you guys noticed the price of eggs lately? I couldn't believe my eyes when I went to the grocery store and saw what the price was for a large container of eggs. Almost $5.00! It has to do with a group of chickens having to die off lately because they had some kind of disease. That is sad. It seems like a lot of different animals are dying off lately, like the honeybees for example. They're also having problems. I haven't had to buy a container of honey yet, but I'm sure that price will sky ...

2 Point Watermelon Margaritas

2 point Watermelon Margaritas 002

This has been the perfect birthday weekend! It kicked off Friday night at a friend's house watching the movie Frozen. I finally got to see what all the hooplah was about, and  I liked that movie a lot. On Saturday, I got together with a bunch of friends and family and played Bingo at Lucky 13's. We didn't win anything, but quite a few of us were close. I'm surprised I was able to still play Bingo, considering the fact, that I had a huge punch bowl. I ended up getting some awesome presents too. ...

Whole Wheat BLT Caprese Panini

blt caprese sandwich 010

I've been taking this new gym class on Tuesday and Thursday nights called Tabatas. Tabatas is an intense training class for 30 minutes where you do so many moves as you can in 20 seconds and you repeat that 7 times.  6 or  7 times, something like that. The killer for me is always burpees. Those things SUCK. The thing I love about that class is, is that I sweat every time. There's just something about sweating that gives me a high.   This Whole Wheat BLT Caprese Panini is actually fa ...

Watermelon Freezer Pops

watermelon freezer pops 015

Here's the thing about layered ice pops. The waiting.  The jello layers take about 20 - 30 minutes to get hard enough in the ice box where you can start adding the second layers. The recipe states 20 minutes no less, but not every freezer is created equal. There are white fridges, stainless steal fridges, nicer fridges than the one I have... Boy, would I ever love to get a new fridge because it is ANCIENT. In order to actually do that though, there would have to be a lot of kitchen remodel ...

Chopped Thai Chicken Salad

chopped thai salad 013

I must admit something. I've been eating pretty terrible lately. That shrimp scampi pizza I made yesterday wasn't that healthy. On top of that, I've been eating Chinese Food from Panda Express, oatmeal raisin cookies, my favorite flax seed chips from Sam's Club, cheese sticks and Ben and Jerry's ice cream. I love carbs and I can't sop eating them! Thought a salad would be good to have in order to kick that carb habit. This is one of my favorite salads and I found it on Pinterest. It has ...
