About a year ago, my now-boyfriend Curtis and I started spending an awful lot of time together – and an awful lot of time ordering take-out from our favorite Chinese place in nearby Princeton. We tended to gravitate toward the same dishes – I got eggplant in garlic sauce, while Curt was fond of the General Tso’s Tofu. We would bring our big paper bag back to Curt’s apartment, where we would watch episodes of Scrubs and eat our food on separate couches. Since then, a few things have changed (we sit on the same couch now!)
In my opinion, these are, hands down, the best things I think I’ve ever cooked. Each bite is packed with pizza flavor and I can’t get enough of them! I brought Daniel a few to try and he polished them off in a matter of seconds, immediately asking for “30 more, please.” We love onion (I use frozen chopped onion most of the time, because my eyes so much when I cut fresh onions that I can’t see and cut myself almost every time!)
Well, I didn’t end up making the Itty Bitty Carrot Cake Cookies , but I did end up making an off-spring! Meet the carrot cake cookie in breakfast form.
If you’re in need of portable whole grains, these are perfect.
Start your morning off right with these healthy and delicious oatmeal protein pancakes. This protein powder recipe will leave you full to start off your day with the combination of complex carbs and protein powder, we even like to add a TBSP of peanut butter on top to add some healthy fats to this meal.
I love making protein crepes. They are so versatile.
Making cheese at home sounds daunting, difficult, and all of those other words we attach to things we would rather have someone else do for us.
I've mentioned before that I have some health issues that I'm working on at the moment. One of them happens to be a low functioning thyroid. My doctor is a medical doctor who happens to like to fix the root of the issue, naturally if possible, rather than throwing pills at symptoms.
You can call it paleo, but around our house, we call it dino-chow. I don’t (generally) consume grains, sugar, dairy, legumes, caffeine, or alcohol, so almost all of my dino-chow recipes are squeaky clean and paleo/Whole30/primal-approved.
This is not a cinnamon bun: It’s baked oatmeal , complete with Cinnamon Bun Frosting .
So happy it’s the weekend…except my husband is heading out to his monthly drill for the National Guard so no break for Mommy. It’s a good thing my daughter is cute, or else her mischievous acts would have driven me crazy by now. Seriously.
In the kitchen baking once again. This time I've been bitten by the cookie bug.
