PB and Banana Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Healthy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

Thank you to my friend, Kanani, for suggesting that someone make this healthified chocolate chip cookie dough dip for our women’s bible study group this week!  At first, I was worried that people would be able to detect the beans in there, but it got the thumbs up from both adult women and a bunch … Continue reading

Refrigerator Bran Muffins

Refrigerator Bran Muffins

My aunty recently made these for me, and I loved them!  Usually when I think of bran muffins, I assume they are so healthy to the point of being not very tasty, but these are seriously delicious.  The best part is that the batter makes enough for 60 muffins and you can keep the wet batter … Continue reading

Things are starting to come together over here!  I just have a few more rooms to go through to see if there’s anything I want to donate instead of moving (namely, my closet/dresser).  I’m slightly ashamed to admit that I still have shirts from highschool/college…anyone else? 🙂  We’ve also had a couple showings on the … Continue reading

I’ve been a proud mama and wife this week 🙂  Little sweetie did a great job at her first dentist visit.  She really seemed to enjoy having her teeth cleaned by the hygienist, and having her teeth counted by the dentist!  Best of all, there were no cavities! Also, our hot water heater broke last … Continue reading

These are some of my favorite snacks: Fresh strawberries topped with Oikos vanilla greek yogurt.  I love this flavor of greek yogurt…it’s got a touch of sweetness and a thick, rich texture!  Plus, you get lots of protein from the greek yogurt, which keeps me full for quite a while.  It’s perfect as breakfast, afternoon … Continue reading

Food Memories – Guacamole

  Who doesn’t love guacamole?  That creamy, spicy, salty treat…on top of tacos/burgers or just by itself with some Tostitos Hint of Lime Chips.  It’s a favorite in our house.  I didn’t actually start liking avocados until college, and now I’m addicted!  A good friend of ours started making this amazing guacamole for us when … Continue reading
