Coming 'atcha with another delightful recipe from Run Fast Eat Slow. If you know me well you know I have quite the sweet tooth. I can demolish anything that's chocolate and peanut butter. (Reese's you've been warned). So when I looked through the sweet section of the book I knew I wanted to give these a try. Plus everyone had been raving about them - so no brainer.
They don't have eggs (which I also appreciate) so the batter is up for grabs too! They recommend in the book to let it refridgerate overnight but I've put them in the oven after whipping up the batter and they taste great. So if you're impatient (like me) and don't want to wait no problem! Look below for the full recipe and instructions. :)
Comin' atcha with another delicious recipe from Run Fast Eat Slow. It has been my go to cookbook these last couple of weeks. We've tried out a few of the recipes but I hope to slowly work my way through most of it.
I was looking for something easy to eat for lunch this week. I've been eating salads with baked chicken which while healthy isn't really filling (even when you have a superhero muffin for dessert.) So I opted to try these breakfast burritos (with a few changes for me). I made a batch for the week on Sunday (super convenient) then I just zap one a couple of minutes in the microwave at work and voila instant deliciousness. And filling! And healthy! Trifecta of happiness.
I received Run Fast Eat Slow for xmas from my BFF and BRF, Kristi. I have to admit it's set on my cookbook shelf for a bit as the spring semester has been a little crazy! But finally I pulled it down a week or so ago to try out some recipes. For a first go I thought I'd try the famed superhero muffins. Everyone's been raving about them on IG so they must be food right??
OMG amazing. You would have no idea these are packed full of veggies. They are so tasty even the hubs was scarfing them down. I'll leave the recipe below (the version I made) for anyone who hasn't tried them yet (although I think I was in the minority of not giving them a try). SO GOOD.
Tis the season for girl scout cookies! Now- if you're like me and grew up on Tagalongs and Samoas but you now live in ABC baker territory where they try and sell you Peanut Butter Patties and Caramel Delights then yes you need something better.
My mom used to make these cookies when I was a kid (kind of like my cupcakes in Kindergarten) and I recently starting making them again in the last couple of years. Boy are they a hit! I have yet to meet someone who doesn't become addicted because well they are that good.
Take that girl scouts! You can make these babies year round. MMMMMM delicious.
Oh and I did I mention they are the easiest things ever to create?? Well here are your directions below. Make them immediately- give to all your friends (or eat them all the time) and REPEAT!
So as we've embarked on January with fitness and healthy eating- I've been sticking to SkinnyTaste to feed Jon while I do my own thing. As he loves pasta and meat this seemed like a no brainer to fix!
Recipe is below- make it and enjoy!!
This recipe is a long time coming- and really super easy to make. Every new year you're supposed to start the year off with black eyed peas. Good luck and all. So here's a quick and easy recipe that I'm a big fan of and hope that you'll enjoy to- obviously anytime of the year but definitely for New Years Day 2017.
See told you it was easy! They'll be smushy and delicious. and Happy New Year!
One of my favorite desserts to take to share- and one of the easiest!! I've brought this dessert to many a gathering and hope to bring it to many more. It's always a crowd pleaser and I'm always happy to pass on this recipe- so it only seemed fitting that I post it here after I made it this year for a holiday party!
Tis the season right?? I had some leftover canned pumpkin (was an experiment to settle Loki's tummy- he was NOT a fan) and so Jon was like please make some pie. Well- I've never made pumpkin pie before so I turned to the internet and to one of my fave site- SkinnyTaste. Sure enough, there was a skinny pumpkin pie recipe that I only altered a little and ended up tasting delightful so I had to share the recipe with you all!
We were graciously given lots of fresh garden tomatoes from one of Jon's new co-workers. Some beefsteak and roma varieties. I'd never worked with fresh tomatoes before to make sauce so I thought why not? Let's try something new and it turned out great!!
Boiling tomatoes and then blanching them to peel was one of the most fun things I've done in cooking. I couldn't believe how easy it was and how easily the skin came off!
So far we've used the sauce for cauliflower pizza and for vegetables. Rice pasta is up next!
I adapted the recipe from Wellness Mama and so far so good! We'll be using it all week :)
Super delicious- so much so that I want to make cauliflower pancakes and anything breadlike out of cauliflower. It really had me fooled thinking it was bread.
I looked over the internet to find a good recipe and kind of combined a bunch of different ones to make what I thought would be good. Jon and I deemed this a repeat recipe so I'll be making another in the near future!
