If you are looking for a high-protein, high-calorie, high-energy recipe for your active lifestyle– these are the bars for you! The dark chocolate, raisins and maple syrup make sure they taste delicious, while the chia seeds, flax meal and hemp hearts provide a healthy sustained energy. I used Sunbutter since Ben is allergic to peanuts and tree nuts, but you can sub almond butter, peanut butter or any other nut butter of your choice.
I can’t believe that I almost forgot to share this recipe before the Holidays. For all you last-minute folks, you are in luck! Even though I have only been to Red Lobster once, the memory of the Cheddar Bay Biscuits will never leave my mind. They were the best biscuit I had ever had. After talking about them with Ben, I decided there had to be a copycat recipe out there- and go figure- there was!
It snowed here this weekend… on the EXACT same day as the first snow last year (thanks Facebook!)… Crazy right? Being cooped up in the house this weekend led me to cleaning out the large amount of rotten bananas in my freezer. Sometimes I think Ben purposely lets them rot, just so I will make banana bread…
I saw a crepe cake on social media a while back and knew I HAD to make one. I went with a berry compote and powdered sugar glaze, so that it could be served as breakfast or dessert, because who doesn’t want this for breakfast? This recipe is meant to be shared and is great for a brunch!
Sometimes I find myself talking about food with Ben, only to hear the response, “I have never had that.” It makes my heart ache; how could somebody not have had ____! This time, it was a muffin. NEVER. HAD. A. MUFFIN?! I have a soft spot for a good blueberry muffin, so I had to make a Ben Friendly (soon to be trademarked) blueberry muffin.
This spring has been SO nice! The weather has been awesome, which means we have been able to camp a bunch already! With all the climbing and outdoor activities it is important to have a breakfast that will set you up for success. This is another Pinsperation post, but the boats are just so cute you can’t be mad about it!
Do you ever find yourself scrolling through page after page on Pinterest? If so, do you also find yourself with a list of things that you “definitely have to make”, including home improvement projects? That is how I am too. Pinterest has created this strange world of adorable tricks and easy DIY projects that never used to exist. I, for one, am thankful for that. These egg-in-a-hole toasts were definitely inspired by all the crazy breakfast ideas you see on Pinterest.
The holidays are just around the corner; what will you be making? For those of you who are not sure, I’ve compiled a list of my top 30 favorite holiday recipes. There are some sweet, some savory, some for the early morning and some for late night. Enjoy!
Fall is in the air in Summit County. The aspens are lit up like fire across the mountains, the mornings are brisk and the tourists have gone home for the summer. Life is good. I always say that I don’t want summer to end, but am pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoy autumn. As hard as it is to say during our amazing summers in Colorado, I really love all the seasons- especially right as they are changing. There is a cozy feeling about autumn that makes me want to bake- warm, fluffy bread.
Working nights has really made me love breakfast. Since I have to be into work by 2:30 or 3, I don’t feel like I really have time to make a nice recipe for my blog on days that I work, but breakfast is a different story. I can wake up early, make a delicious meal, and still have time to photograph it before work. I never was a huge breakfast recipe fan before, but lately I have been loving making delicious, over-the-top breakfast dishes.
