I can tell you one thing, I was not not NOT going to use the oven. Or the stove. I was even apprehensive about using the air popper to make popcorn. So, we ate muddy buddies. Hooray!
This week, I decided my portable snacks ought to be homemade, and since I recently purchased some new popsicle molds, I figured this was the perfect opportunity to test them out. Also, it gave me an excuse to eat Snickers.
One of my alternatives to junk-food snacking this season is these Granola Bites. There is still enough sweetness in them to make them really fun and delicious, while packing a protein punch that keeps the cravings at bay. Plus? I love peanut butter. YUM.
It was pure torture, waiting for them to bake, waiting for them to cool, waiting for them to be photographed before I could swan dive face first into them.
Because, y’all?! My friends are back!! And we’ve gathered up some amazing-awesome Halloween recipes just for you. Because that’s the kind of friends we are.
My talented cousin told me in a Facebook post about her delicious grilled PB&J sandwiches, with bananas and chocolate chips. I mean, let’s face it, the idea is brilliant.
The Lizard finally settled on Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake for his birthday, which is just fine with me. My family’s love of chocolate and peanut butter is practically legend. As if chocolate peanut butter cake and peanut butter frosting weren’t enough, I covered the top with chocolate ganache and threw some chopped peanut butter cups on top.
I was actually worried the family would devour it before I had a chance to photograph it, because I left the house for several hours, while the Hippie Chick and I attended a bridal shower. You never know what will happen to those unattended treats in a houseful of boys.
Protein shake recipes are a must when trying to eat more protein. This chocolate smoothie includes bananas, peanut butter, and chocolate protein powder.
Make some buckeyes for the big game! The buckeye recipe calls for chocolate, peanut butter, and no baking.
