Cereal Milk Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

cereal milk oatmeal breakfast cookies

  I made you cookies. I mean breakfast. I mean breakfast cookies. Oatmeal breakfast cookies. Oatmeal cookies made with cereal milk so we will just call them cereal milk oatmeal breakfast cookies! I have been wanting to create cookies using cereal milk for a while now but didn’t get around to it until a few days ago. What […]

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

banana chocolate chip cookies

  First day of school, first day of school! I have this old-fashioned way of thinking in that the first day of school should involve afternoon cookies with milk while unwinding in front of the television watching one of those ABC afterschool specials that haven’t been on since probably the late 1980’s. Or maybe some cookies […]

Summer Weekend Recap


    As I put this weekend recap post together, I realized that none of my time was spent at the beach or the pool which is in complete contrast to my typical posts from past summer seasons. But I like the variety right now and knowing there’s so much more to do than just go to the […]

Happy Birthday To Me

Happy birthday to me and a happy Friday to you! That would be my dessert from last night. Of course my son and I ended up at The Cheesecake Factory and of course I had Linda’s Fudge Cake. In fact, looking back on my last two year’s worth of birthday blog posts, it seems I […]

Love Grown Foods Giveaway!

Love Grown Foods Birthday Giveaway

  I LOVE that today’s giveaway is from Love Grown Foods because right now, as I think about my approaching 37th birthday, I am realizing how much I LOVE where I am in life at the moment. I usually say that my favorite time period in life was around my 22nd birthday. Back then my whole […]

Reader Questions Answered! Part Two

reader questions answered

  Last month I dedicated a post to answering some of the common reader questions that I received by email. I have a few more questions which recently came in on great topics so let’s get to answering them today! You eat oatmeal every single morning but what brand of oatmeal do you buy and which type of […]

WIAW – Day Of My Long Run

post run oatmeal

    When deciding which day to feature as my What I Ate Wednesday post this week, I thought it would be interesting to take a look at what I ate on Saturday, otherwise known as, long run day. There are some Saturdays where I am absolutely beyond starving immediately following my run which continues […]

Weekend Sentence Per Picture

Friendly's Crowd Pleaser

  After last week’s all potato diet, I didn’t need to restock very much aside from the essentials from Trader Joe’s. I feel so LOVED. Who needs flowers when you get special deliveries from Love Grown Foods?! Look at all of these new cereals and oh my, the Cranberry Pecan Oat Clusters- so delicious! Saturday was […]

Good Food Talk Friday

chocolate covered macaroons

    Today’s post is almost an extension of yesterday’s Thinking Out Loud because I have a ton of randomness to discuss with you on this Good Friday with Passover to begin at sundown. Should we talk cookie dough or coffee first? Hmm. It almost makes sense to start with coffee since I am currently […]

My Sweet Tooth Took Over Plus Chocolately Recipe Round Up

      Something really exciting happened in my Twitter land this week. Seriously, I feel honored and almost famous in a modern technology sort of way. I actually had my favorite Maoz salad again the other night for dinner; it’s still fascinating to me that they opened near my house. The girl who handled the […]

Weekend Smores & Stuff


  The winner of the LOVE O’s Giveaway is Ashlee! Remember, if you live near a King Soopers, City Market, Dillons, Kroger or Fry store, you can still pick up a box of the Limited Edition LOVE O’s for the next few weeks. I highly recommend it! So yesterday I left off saying I was taking […]

February LOVE & Giveaway

Love Grown Foods giveaway

    Guess who was able to run outside yesterday morning?! I didn’t have my Lulu neck warmer but it was fine; the temperature in the morning was above freezing and the first snow flakes of the day didn’t start until I was almost done with my run. I may not love February weather but I do […]
