Chocolate Peanut Butter Blender Muffins


We’ve had a terrific summer so far.

Great fun with friends and family, sleepovers, parties, weekend getaways, and of course amazing food. Probably a little too much food, and not always the healthiest. There is just something about summer that makes healthy eating just a wee bit more difficult.

smore stuffed french toast

s'more stuffed french toast what could be better than a s'more for breakfast  Is it just me, or is summer FLYING by? We're back to school in less than three weeks. As excited as I am about getting  a schedule back {our summer is about as non-scheduled as you can get} I want to squeeze in every bit of summer I can. For the next few weeks you'll find me at the pool, or at the lake, maybe the drive-in, and most definitely I'll have a s'more of some kind in my hand.

Cauliflower Rice

Cauliflower Rice make the perfect bed for these sausage and bell pepper kabobs   I've been pretty open with the fact that I m a complete carboholic. Bread IS my most favorite food on the planet. Pasta, rice, and potatoes aren't too far behind. I'm certainly not in the "all carbs are bad"  camp, but  I don't need to eat like I'm training for a marathon. So, for this week's #fitfriday I decided to try the very popular cauliflower rice. You've probably seen it around the inter-web; maybe you've even tried it for yourself. For me it was a first, but it won't be a last. We loved it.     First, it does NOT taste like rice, but can be used almost anywhere you would use rice. Also, it tastes like cauliflower because it IS cauliflower. If you do … {continue reading}
