It’s hard to believe February is over already.
It seems it came and went in a flash.
And though we have to bid farewell to National Chocolate Lovers Month, we have much to look forward to in the future. Specifically one day in the future…
Tomorrow, March 1st, is– get ready for it– National Peanut Butter Lovers Day!
While I myself am more of a chocoholic than a peanut butter-holic, I know many people just can’t get enough of that creamy, nutty goodness. So this post is dedicated to all you peanut butter fanatics! But if you happen to be more of a chocolate lover, fear not; this recipe is for you, too!
Today’s menu is featuring homemade Inside Out Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups.
If you’re not as excited as I am, you should be.
Did you know that February is National Chocolate Lovers Month? Yeah. I’m just finding this out today, and I’m usually disappointed when I find out about food holidays towards the end of the celebration period. However, I’m pretty much always “celebrating” chocolate, so I’m not too disgruntled about the 24 days of National Chocolate Lovers Month that have already passed.
Now, you may be wondering why I’m going on about chocolate when today’s post clearly does not contain a chocolate recipe. Well, I’m quite certain that there’s no shortage of chocolate recipes out there, and I thought a healthy recipe would be a nice way to offset all that Valentine’s chocolate and other celebratory chocolate treats.
So put aside the chocolate for a while, and feast your eyes on this Copycat Qdoba Burrito Bowl.
No recipe here today, but I just wanted to share our blizzard day family tradition with you all.
Rob’s family has a tradition of making homemade donuts when there’s a big, bad blizzard.
Well, there was a big, bad blizzard yesterday. We invited some friends over after church, before the snow had trapped us in, and we carried on a favorite family tradition.
I will definitely share the recipe on here someday, but for now, you just get a little sneak peak.
I have a confession.
I love my husband and would never do anything to hurt him.
But I did something bad: I gave him a sweet tooth.
Rob grew up eating healthy meals made by his mom, and he didn’t really crave chocolate and sweets. Well, that unfortunately has changed since he married chocolate-loving me.
Don’t get me wrong; we still eat healthy, and I don’t bake indulgent treats nearly as often as I want to. But I do fall into the tempting trap of the Sugar Monster on occasion, and I’ve unintentionally dragged Rob into this trap with me. I’m a horrible person.
But on a happier note, I made some awesome chocolate peanut butter cookies! After dinner the other night, Rob sheepishly told me he wanted chocolate. I wasn’t about to turn down a request for dessert, so here’s what I made!
Well, I’ve had the draft of this post open on my computer for a few days now, trying to think of a clever way to introduce these Energy Bites. It’s not that they’re boring, they’re just… simple. Like Mother Teresa. Simple, but full of goodness.
