Baked Apples

Posted by on Dec 10, 2015 in Health & Food | 0 comments

Baking apples is a great way to get into the holiday mood, and it makes the entire house smell glorious. Not to mention its pretty easy, but kind of time-consuming if you are slow at peeling apples.

You will need:

1 bag of small red apples of 5 large red apples (I don’t know the exact kind. I just know I always use red, ya that’s how I roll)

1/2 orange juice

2 packets of cinnamon spice instant oatmeal (I liked the Trader Joe’s brand when I was living near one)

1/4 cup brown sugar


Last box left after we moved (tear).


Preheat oven to 350º

Peel and core all apples. Cut into slices. Place apple slices in baker or pot that has a lid. Pour orange juice all over apples, then sprinkle the 2 packets of oatmeal all over apples. Lastly sprinkle brown sugar on top of the oatmeal. Place lid on top of baker or pot. Cook for 1 hour or until apples are soft.

I cook mine the Pampered Chef baker.

Just Cookie Dough

Posted by on Aug 27, 2015 in Health & Food | 2 comments

Yesterday I had mentioned I wanted to share some cookie dough with you…. I wish I literally could! But will you settle for where I got it? This amazing cookie dough is called Just Cookie Dough and the best part about it, it that you can eat it right out of the container and not get sick. Ok, I need to be careful how I phrase that sentence, I’m sure if you ate too much you’re going to feel like crap, what I mean to say is, the ingredients are safe to eat raw. I bought this cookie dough at a Kroger Select grocery store. Here are a list of grocery stores that are apart of the Kroger branch….

Ralphs, Dillions, Smith’s, King Soopers (I grew up shopping at this branch), Fry’s, QFC, City Market, Owen’s, Jay C, Pay less, Bakers, Gerbes, Scott’s Food and Pharmacy, and  Harris Teeter. Then all of these including Kroger and Kroger Select, have FredMeyer as their head branch. Not that you wanted/needed to know that.

I’m quite positive that all these stores will not carry Just Cookie Dough, and unfortunately so. However, if one of these is your local grocery store I highly recommend checking to see if your store carries it!

See! Right there on the label EAT IT RAW… Don’t mind if I do.


And I did….

Just Cookie Dough is






No Artificial Colors of flavors

The label does not come right out and say Vegan but it is; and if you read this list and you think “No thank you”, I urge you to give them a try! This dough really is awesome! Too dang bad the company is not paying me for this post!

Friday Salad

Posted by on Aug 14, 2015 in Health & Food | 2 comments

A couple of weeks ago my sister Tara was telling me about salad in a jar. Have you heard of this before? I thought it was a great idea and decided to give it a shot. Essentially all you do is get your favorite salad ingredients and pack them tightly into a mason jar.

The prep takes a little work but it is well worth it. Each salad in a jar lasts about 5 days, and there is nothing better then opening up the refrigerator and grabbing a beautiful salad all ready to go (minus dumping it into a bowl.)

How to make salad in a jar….

Prepare all your favorite salad ingredients

Your first layer will be your dressing about 4 table spoons (let me be honest people for the most part I just eye everything).

Put your more solid ingredients towards the bottom of the jar and the softer veggies  and/or fruits will be higher in the jar.

Last but not least stuff as much salad as you can at the top of the jar.

Throw the jars in the fridge and when you are ready to eat a salad, pop open the jar and dump in a bowl. Pretty simple right.

I like to add a little pepper on my salad after I have put it in the bowl. Have a wonderful healthful weekend!

There’s Some Fishiness Going On

Posted by on Jun 29, 2015 in Health & Food | 2 comments

Chris and I have been living in our “new” home and town for a little over a month now… Turns out it’s much to small to support being vegan (meaning there are not a lot of options at the grocery store), so we have decided to add sea food into our diet (for now, maybe forever?). I thought this recipe looked wonderful for dinner tonight.
