Peanut Butter Pretzel Bite Yums...

What happens when you mix peanut butter...
and chocolate together?
Joy and happiness.
And whom do I have to thank for this Joy and Happiness?

Pinterest alerted me to this madness. 
And I am ever so thankful.
Pinterest is a wealth of ideas, recipes and projects.
And some are great ideas.
And some not so great.
Enter two ingredient pancakes.
You can read all about my experiment here
It was ugly.
But, this was a Pinterest success.  

I ended up having to research the original recipe as the Pinterest link I had was a total failure.
But, I found it.   
Two Tiny Kitchens made the original recipe

This is one recipe I highly recommend you try.
But, be warned.
These are very addicting.  
I think that instead of chocolate chips next time I am going to use a quality dark chocolate.  
And trust me....
I will be making these again soon!

Monday Blues

I have a case of the Monday blues...
I just might have the Tuesday blues as well...
And don't even get me started on Wednesday...
I am not quite sure what I was so blue about...
There was cake and donuts involved this Monday.
I avoided the donuts...
except for that tiny corner piece I snuck in this afternoon....
But if no one saw you eat it..
it doesn't count right...
I did eat cake though...
I probably should have just eaten a donut instead.
I ate pizza (gulp) for lunch and....
I am not even going to tell you what I ate for dinner.
ugh.  I feel bloated.  
Yep.  Bloated and Monday Blues.
I am training for a half marathon.
Walking not running.  
If you see my running... trouble is coming
But I feel more tired and bloated than ever.
What is wrong?
Is it the Monday blues speaking?
Maybe tomorrow I will eat lettuce.  
Lettuce and carrots.  yum.  Not.  
Well, I am going to have to kick myself out of this funk.  
So, instead of being blue... let's talk about babies.
Baby Girls!!
I made these cookies for a friend's baby shower the other weekend.  
And pink is the opposite of blue right??

Smiles (even if I had to force it a little today),
