I love to make easy recipes that taste really good. This is one of them. Combine fruit and coconut and both are wins to me! If you haven’t heard of coconut cream yet, be prepared, it’s pretty awesome. …
Do you have a favorite Trader Joe’s Product? One thing that makes the trip worth it? Favorite chocolate?
Some of my favorites are unsweetened unsulfered mangoes, Mediterranean hummus, pita bites crackers, and coconut chocolate almonds.
I’ve only been a Trader Joe’s shopper for about 4 years now. They are great for snacks, even if they often fall in the sometimes food category. A friend was told me she’d love to know what other people like to buy there. Why not? Sounds fun! So I blind emailed about 20 people asking what their favorite things were. This is the results! And no. I was not paid for this review or suggestions…it’s just a fun thing to do. Why not carry your camera around at Trader Joe’s!? Haha. Longest Trader Joe’s shopping trip ever! It was worth it.

Happy Valentine’s Day!
How are you celebrating loving others? I was talking on my instagram the other day how my whole life revolves around love and kindness and accepting the best from others. What an awesome chance to celebrate that with a dedicated day every year…you don’t have to be in a relationship with someone special to practice this one!
And since it’s Valentine’s Day, you’ll need some sort of treat.
I’m going to give you something with chocolate (of course) and coconut. I love these two flavors together – macaroons anyone? These are easy, fast, and can be versatile with substitutions and additions…date bars in their finest hours….
When I think of caramel apples, I think hard, too sweet, and too much without a savory kick. It’s not satisfying even as a sometimes food. This is. Banana pancakes will give you some protein and savory, top that with cinnamon apples and homemade caramel syrup and this is the best version of carmel apples you’ll ever eat.
First, you need to decide on your pancakes.
We’ve had this with french toast, crepes, out-of-the-box pancake mix, and banana pancakes. As a sometimes food, figure out which one works best for you. However, if you want to eat on the healthy side, actually getting something from your pancakes, I’d recommend the banana pancakes.
They are super duper easy, so easy that they don’t seem possible….
Do you think soft, melt-in-your-mouth, and citrus infused when you think of scones? I didn’t.
I often think hard, dry, and a poor-excuse for calorie intake. Not with these guys.
I love how these are just sweet enough to feel like an indulgence but at the same time light enough to justify every bite of consumption. Blueberry lemon scones…yum….
As much as I hate to perpetuate junk food (sometimes food) during the holidays…I want to give you a half-healthy alternative to ice cream, chocolate cake, orange sticks, and pecan pie.
This is the caramel apple bar, apple sundae bar, apple dipping, or whatever else you want to call it. This is easy and definitely a sometimes food, but if you’re looking for a fast party to plan or a friend gathering where you’ll crowd around the table together, this is it. As a special treat, this is fun for adults and kids! We done this with a group of friends and also with our own children with success. …
