Delicious Treat For A Hot Summer Afternoon

Looking for a delicious treat on a hot summer afternoon? Look no more, I've found it. I pinned this little recipe a while back and decide it was time to experiment. My real motivation was a healthier alternative to dessert for O. So I guess I can consider it a win-win. Healthier dessert for O and a tasty treat for me on a hot afternoon.

It's super easy, I promise. I think it took me all of 10 minutes to prepare. You can check out this recipe at

What you'll need:

Bananas (5)Greek fat free vanilla yogurt (2 ounces)Peanut Butter (1 tablespoon) Mix 1 mashed banana, tablespoon of peanut butter and 2 ounces of yogurt and set aside.

The fun started yesterday when I bought my new toy, the Nutribullet. I made my first Nutriblast smoothie last night. I chose to start with their Toxin cleansing blast (spinach, pear, banana, apple, pineapple and water) and to my surprise it was delicious!

So what does this have to do with Kale Chips??? Well, I got crazy in the produce section at Fresh Market and bought a little to much kale. Good thing I pinned a baked kale chips recipe eons ago. This great little recipe is from the blog, "Playing With Our Food, gluten-free-g…

Laundry Room Chaos, No More.

Oh, how I've missed you. It's been some time since I posted. How I managed to get that Mother's Day post off, still amazes me. Truth be told, I've actually been writing posts... in my head that is. The hard part is actually finding the time to put those thoughts in writing here. If I do manage to find some free time for me, there seems to be something else that "MUST" get done. So my apologies to myself for not keeping up with my writing.

Okay, enough of my sob story. The real reason I am writing today is to share with you the chaos of my laundry room. The laundry room is one of my favorite rooms in our house. I know, call me crazy. I happen to spend a lot of time in here, so I may as well like it. I love all the extra storage the cabinets give me for my sheets, crafts and other miscellaneous "stuff." I also love the big tub sink.

I am still trying to figure out how 4 people make so much laundry. I think there are little gremlins that sneak in when …
