PB&J Fruit Bars

IMG_20120910_115002

I found Larabars about a year ago. And I fell in love. So did Jared. Especially with the PB&J kind (which, by the way, taste just like a PB&J sandwich). But they can be pricey. I mean $1.25 for one little snack seems a bit ridiculous. Then I found a recipe to make them at […]

Football, football, football and gluten-free snacks

IMG_20120909_172814

Football season is upon us once again. It really is the greatest season of all. Each and every year our beloved football season rolls around and we rejoice in knowing that Saturdays will be spent in one of two ways: 1) tailgating all day, then walking to Kyle Field to watch the Aggies play, or […]

Paleo piña colada ice cream

Before I post this recipe there are 3 important things I have to tell you: I started CrossFit yesterday. Pray for me. While I have never aspired to be a magician, I do think magic is awesome. And I never thought I’d be able to do a magic trick (except for that weird thumb thing […]

PB&J ice cream, thoughts on coconut milk and a running playlist

IMG_9068

Did I mention to you that I’m running the BCS Half Marathon? Well, I am. And now you know. This has made Shiner very happy. That dog would run all day if you let her. Not on a treadmill though. I think she would have a heart attack if we tried to get her on one […]

Blackberry Ice Cream (GF and Dairy Free)

Sometimes being a grown up sucks. Sometimes, the transmission goes out in your only vehicle and they can’t fix it until Friday. Sometimes, it just so happens the day it goes out is a Monday (Can I go back to bed and please start over?). On those days, you need ice cream. It’s absolutely, extremely, super-imperative that […]

June Anti-Boredom Project {The Winter Sea}

My oldest sister (Julie, I call her Yoo-Lee), like me, is an avid reader. The main difference is that she reads at lightening-fast speed. I think she finished the last Harry Potter book in two days. She has great taste when it comes to the books she reads, so when she told me to check […]

June Anti-Boredom Project {Insurgent}

insurgent-by-veronica-roth-e1335139949319

I am admittedly very picky when it comes to reading books – I get too invested in the plot and characters not to be. So when I find a series that I really enjoy, it’s like Christmas morning – I become very invested in the characters’ lives and usually can’t stop reading until I’m done. This explains […]

June Anti-Boredom Project {Divergent}

I may be just a teeny bit biased, but my husband is the best. I’ll tell you why: Did you notice the new site design? Of course, that’s all Jared (and Caitlin! Thanks for my badass logo!). He took me to Seattle this past weekend for the BlogHer Food conference. We got to meet so many […]

May Anti-Boredom Project {GF Jelly Donut Cupcakes}

IMG_8823

Two words reached out and grabbed me when I found this recipe for Jelly Donut Cupcakes – Donut and Jelly. Being from Round Rock, home of the world famous Round Rock Donuts, I know a thing or two about amazing donuts. And I love them.  I mean, who could resist the Texas Sized Round Rock Donut? Amiright? But […]

Lemon blueberry cupcakes with lemon cream cheese icing

IMG_8678

I told you I made approximately a metric TON of cupcakes for my mom’s graduation. No, seriously. I did. Seriously. I made these chocolate lovelies, and I made gluten-free lemon blueberry cupcakes from this cookbook. So far I have made two recipes from it and would say I’m batting 500 (for those of you who […]
