Protein balls are the most perfect snack for all.  These protein balls are filled with peanut butter, old fashioned oats, honey, chocolate chips, and wheat germ.  You can add all other kinds of stuff if you want like shredded coconut, raisins, nuts, peanuts, the list is pretty endless.

CHocolate CHip Cookie Ice Cream SUndaes

There’s something about ice cream sundaes that make me feel like a BIG kid again!

Maybe its the simple easy chocolate chip cookie cups I made in the muffin pan, easy as 1, 2, 3. ¬†Or maybe its scoops of my favorite ice cream on top of my cookie cups drizzled with chocolate fudge shell, then sprinkled with colored jimmies and let’s not forget the cherry!

IMG_1606

Whatever it is I’m loving it!

The best thing about these ice cream sundaes are that they are inside a chocolate chip cookie cup — that you can eat — that’s right, you can eat the sundae and the bowl, the whole thing!!!

I bet I got you grinning from ear to ear now! ūüėÄ

Pumpkin Spice French Toasts

Pumpkin is popping up everywhere.  I mean pie pumpkins are out in the stores along with big ol massive pumpkins for decorating.  I guess the season is changing and fall is here.

Now even though it is still hot as sin — {exactly how hot is that to be precise??? I used to always wonder that when my mom would say that} — or how about hot like fire — you know you like that one. :-)

IMG_1620

Anyways it hasn’t cooled down yet in these parts but fall is around the corner¬†and that means my favorite time of year¬†— the time where¬†pumpkins begin baking. ¬†I can’t wait to fill my house with the smell of pumpkin recipes.

There are so many I want to share with you…

I mean come on I know you all have some favorite pumpkin recipes, I would love to hear about them.

Rice is such a staple with Mexican dishes. ¬†We love eating Mexican food at home. ¬†When I was pregnant with KK that’s all I ate was Mexican food. ¬†I think I ate more quesadillas and fajitas during that time then in my whole life. ¬†To this day Mexican is one of my favorite cuisines.

S’mores have got to be the quintessential dessert that screams summer. There’s just something about gathering around a campfire roasting marshmallows, telling stories, and making s’mores that just brings a smile to my face.

I can remember the first time I ever made s’mores at a campfire, it was at camp. ¬†I was 8 years old in Miami and we did a campfire in the late afternoon.

IMG_1369

That was so much fun….

Do you remember the first time¬†you ever roasted marshmallows and made s’mores?

IMG_1366

Now in these parts summer is soon coming to a close with just two weeks left before the homework,¬†projects, and running around begins…who am I kidding the running around is already beginning this week…

Eeeekkkkkkkk!!!!!!

chocolate chip sour cream pancakes 5

Do you ever have those morning where you wake up and think to yourself “What am I going to make for breakfast this morning?”

Even though it’s summer time my husband and I really don’t have a lot of time to spend with the kids in the mornings so when the weekend rolls around I always try and make something special and quite yummy. ¬†Pancakes are one of the many favorites in our house and I love making Buttermilk Pancakes.

Except that when I woke up I remembered oh yea that buttermilk is going to be used for a different recipe. ¬†Of course I didn’t feel like running to the store to buy some so I made an alternative… these Chocolate Chip Sour Cream Pancakes.
