One Bowl, All Natural, No-Bake Energy Bites I apologize in advance if you have a recipe just like this. I’ve seen these kind of energy bites around for ever now and all the recipes are very similar so if this happens to be anyone else’s exact recipe, I’m sorry! That being said, what I’m going to give you is more of a formula. I originally got this idea from a blog that’s no longer up and running, probably 3 years ago. They keep indefinitely in the freezer and I find them so much more addictive when they’re frozen almost solid. Energy Bites makes approximately 2 dozen depending on size 1/2 C nut butter(almond butter, peanut butter, sunflower seed butter or any other nut or seed butter. In a large bowl add the nut butter, honey or other sweetener, vanilla and salt if needed. In this case I used almond butter and for my addins I used equal parts sesame seeds, poppy seeds and mini chocolate chips. For a chocolate option, go to my Chocolate Energy Bites recipe

Baked French Toast It's not my day to post a recipe, but I couldn't help sharing this absolutely delicious recipe with y'all! It. is. so. good. I found it last night while searching for a make-ahead recipe for breakfast (I'm trying to get as much done the night before as possible so I can get all my exercising in early....which is a good thing cuz this ain't no diet-friendly recipe!). I started searching Pinterest for overnight breakfasts, but then thought, "Oooh, I bet P-Dub has something good on her site!" I told my kids this morning that we were trying a new recipe from Pioneer Woman. And it is. Really good. Like, make you wanna slap yo'self good.

Taco "Cupcakes" Once again, another find from Pinterest... (I'm willing to bet that most of these recipes will be found on that website) which is where I found the recipe for the MUST TRY, "Taco Cupcakes!" Not only are these Taco Cupcakes fun but they taste amazing too! (and not to mention an easy clean up when all is said and done) Here is what you will need: 1 1/2t chili oil (found near the Asian ingredients) *I could not find this... it probably was right in front of my face but seriously, never found it. 1/2 lb 95% lean ground beef *We always use ground chicken when it comes to Mexican dishes... 1 T taco seasoning3/4 c canned black beans, drained and rinsed16 wonton wrappers (found in the produce section)5 T + 1t of queso dip or salsa con queso1 c chunky salsa1 c reduced fat shredded Mexican cheeseGuacamole for serving When looking at these ingredients, you may notice that I have no queso dip... I apparently thought I only needed Guacamole (which is a garnish to top the taco cupcakes). Do not judge me. 3. 4.

no-bake energy bites I probably should have poured a nice stiff drink recipe for you all on this loveliest of lovely tax days. Especially for my fellow small business owners who just gave half of their revenue back to the government. Good grief, I won’t even go there.

Oatmeal Rum-Raisin Cake Back in my early days as an architecture student, I’d carry a 5″x7″ notebook and fountain pen everywhere I went. A word, phrase, idea, mindless doodle, full sketches, and anything else that struck me I’d put it in the notebook. This habit of having a notebook is a very common among architecture and art students. Writers do something similar by keeping journals. It not only helps you organize your thoughts, it helps organize your life. I kept dozens these notebooks lined up on shelves like a set of encyclopedias of my life. I believe I used four entire notebooks during my summer architecture program in Rome. After many years of relying on the comfort of a paper notebook, the evolution of technology made me rethink my method of collecting and storing. By 2011, everyone owned a mobile phone and/or computer, and the days of organizing by Filofax and Palm Pilot seemed as distant as a Sony Walkman. The evolution of my notebook got me thinking about how desserts can morph to suit your needs.
