Vegan Chocolate Banana Muffins

RipeBananas-1-copy

I am a huge fan of bananas. It's safe to say I enjoy a banana or two every day. Whether it's for a quick on-the-go snack, added to smoothies, smothered in nut butter, whipped up in the food processor for banana soft serve, added to chia pudding, or snuck into baked goods... I'll put a lil nana in just about anything! But I'm kinda weird when it comes to bananas. I do not enjoy them very ripe. In fact, I prefer them with a lil green around the edges, and absolutely no brown spots! blah! But … [Read more...]

My new favorite finds

EOSbalm

Some new (to me) stuff I've been digging lately... EOS-Evolution of Smooth Lip Balm I really love this stuff! All natural and mostly organic ingredients! It does contain Beeswax (FYI vegans) but EOS does not test on animals which is what I am more concerned with. Plus the balm comes in a cute little bubble case and because of its size it never gets lost in my purse! I have the summer fruit and sweet mint flavors. Lavender & Jasmine Essential Oils I snagged a few … [Read more...]

Summer School I Abhor You

brunch

Summer school has begun... dun dun dun. And I have senselessly packed my summer schedule with more classes than I can realistically handle. But alas, too late now, I'm just going to give it my best shot and run with it. Summer school is crazy because they pack an entire semester (about 16 weeks) worth of material into a condensed summer period (6 to 10 weeks, depending on the course). So instead of 1 or 2 chapters a week, each class covers 2, 3 or even 4 chapters a week. A WEEK! Oh yes, and … [Read more...]

Movin’ on up!

2

Oh Blog land I've missed you these past few weeks... What happens when you leave your Mac pro charger at your boyfriend's house up in Tampa on a Sunday night? Well, I'll tell you what happens. Your Mac pro dies around Monday evening and sputters its last lil breath. And then you are without your precious laptop until the following weekend when you can venture back up to Tampa to see your sweetie and reclaim your laptop charger. Story of my life. I hated being without my laptop all week, … [Read more...]

Chia Rice Pudding

DSC05443

So I made dinner for a boy the other night.  Once a girl lets it slip to a guy that she loves to cook, experiment with new recipes and flavor combinations, and uses baking as the ultimate form of stress relief... she pretty much better step up her game in front of said male sometime in the near future. I'll spare you the juicy details of my cooking date, but I can't help but point out the ironic aspect of my night. As a girl who is pretty much obsessed with all things kitchen-ware … [Read more...]

Holy oatmeal, batman!

My oatmeal has wings. And no, I don't have children. I do things like this to entertain myself. :::mehehee::: Okay, name this movie: "Dear God, make me a bird... so I can fly fa...fa, fa away." ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... Forrest Gump, classic fav. So why am I playing with my oatmeal? Maybe because the insane amount of hours I've spent this weekend studying contract law has started making me go a lil' craaaaaazy! … [Read more...]

Ch-ch-ch-Chia!

DSC04929

For awhile now I've been a skeptic of the chia seed. I've read about all the amazing nutritional stats in these lil buggers and I've wanted so badly to like them. But up until today, they were still mediocre in my book. Sure, I'd toss them into smoothies and sprinkle them over oatmeal once and awhile for that boost in Omega-3s, Protein, Calcium, Fiber and a plethora of other vitamins and nutrients. But they never wowed me.And sometimes they even bothered me. Can we say chia seeds stuck in the … [Read more...]

Whatcha doin' mama?Hmm... Makin' waffles. But last time you tried that you burnt your hand and your waffles turned out black like me. Meeeee- ow! Yeah I know, but this time I'm using grandma's waffle iron instead of that old one I got at a garage sale. I think I'll have better luck. Ahaha! I did have better luck!What about me, do I get some? Hey you can't even tell I'm here. I sort of blend in. meow. Mmmm... vegan chocolate chip coconut whole grain waffles with maple syrup. So delish. That Bob's … [Read more...]

Apple Raisin Cinnamon Rolls

I can't even remember the last time I had cinnamon rolls. Maybe it's because I stay away from store bought sweet pastries, and there is no way I'm going to pop those ultra processed vacuum sealed pillsbury things into my oven and oh yeah, I'm too dang lazy to try to make a homemade healthier version... until... drumroll please... TODAY! I made these sweet little delicacies for my sweetheart of a boyfriend. Since we only have a few more days together until I venture back to Florida, I wanted to … [Read more...]
