Copycat Whole Foods Jumble Nut Cookies

Copycat Whole Foods Jumble Nut Cookies \\ Sarcastic Cooking

I think I have told you guys about my obsession with this cookie before. But, just in case you’re new here (hello, welcome) I will tell you again, I am obsessed! See, I was never much of a Whole Foods girl. I always preferred Trader Joe’s. I would normally split my shopping between Trader Joe’s and Dominick’s. But since all my local Dominick’s shut down and I don’t really like our Jewel, I was doing all my shopping at Trader Joe’s.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love TJ’s, but they don’t always have everything on my grocery list. That is why I needed a basic chain store like a Jewel or Dominick’s. I was happy at TJ’s. Then they went and built a Whole Foods like a block away from Trader Joe’s. [Read more…]

The Messy Baker – Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Happy Friday! Today my friend Jennie is posting for me. Her blog is marvelous. I know, I say that about all my guest bloggers. But, I totally mean it! You think I would pick some rag tag group of bloggers to take over my blog while I am away-ish? Pfff! No way.

I read A LOT of other blogs. Not only do I enjoy supporting my peers, but I also love to read and delve into the lives of these creative people. It is inspiring and also entertaining. Most times I read Jennie’s blog and I think to myself, “I wish we lived closer because we would sooooo be real life, hang out all the time, friends.” I read stories about how she and her husband interact and I can relate and often have gone through a similar situation or incident with Mike.

So, without further ado, here is Jennie with a healthy, energy boosting smoothie recipe. [Read more…]

Eat Your Heart Out – Coconut Baked Oatmeal

Coconut Baked Oatmeal

So, after two weeks of parenting there is one thing I have learned. Well, I have actually learned a lot, but one important thing I learned is to treat my sweet baby Andy like a ticking time bomb. When he goes down for a snooze, I begin the countdown and have to decide what is most important to me. He may only snooze for an hour or half an hour and during that time I have the choices of eating, sleeping, or showering.

If you know me well enough you know what most likely wins out every time. Eating. There are times, most usually in the morning, when sleep does win out over food. I know. Who am I? After our usual 3 a.m. feeding that extra hour or two of sleep is so amazing. I wish my little guy gave me more time in the morning to sleep and eat. Heck! And maybe even shower too!

Until he gets a little older and his sleeps become longer, I will just have to dream about this oatmeal from today’s guest poster, Stephie.  [Read more…]

Super Healthy Cranberry Pumpkin Seed Granola

I think I have explained my issues with snacking to you all before. I am so not a snacker. I mean, I loooooove snack food. For real. Chips, dips, trail mix, cookies, or maybe even a half pint of Ben & Jerry’s. Those are all great snacks in my opinion.

I just try and stay away from snacks because for me, that is one slippery slope. Next thing you know, the whole bag of chips is gone and I have an hour before dinner and guess what? Surprise, surprise. I’m not hungry because my snack just became my meal. [Read more…]
