Week in Review 8/11/12


We are almost to the middle of August, and schools are starting around the country.  We still have a little over a week until school starts here.  My 7 year old says he isn’t sure he is ready, but I think he is.   He has had fun this summer, but he is ready to be back to a routine, and see his friends every day. My parents are coming this week, so we will get to have one last week of fun before structure begins!

Here is what I was up to this week:
Healthy Peanut Butter Cups – Secret Recipe Club Reveal Day!  Peanut Butter Cups made with coconut oil, honey, and cocoa powder – so you don’t have to feel as guilty eating them.
Blueberry Banana Bread – A classic banana quick bread filled with lots of fresh plump blueberries.
Avocado Bruschetta – I love fresh avocados, and this is a great way to use them.  A twist on your classic Bruschetta with avocados!
Vanilla Granola – Homemade granola is so quick and easy.  This has lots of vanilla flavor, walnuts and dried cranberries.
S’mores Brownie Cookies – Friday was National S’mores Day, and I celebrated with these rich and chocolatey cookies!

Here are a few recipes I bookmarked this week:
Sriracha Shrimp Skewers by Handle the Heat – These spicy shrimp sound perfect for the end of the summer.  Quick, flavorful, easy, and good for you!
Crock Pot Beef Carnita Tacos by Eat, Live, Run – These look incredible!  I love Pork Carnitas, so I will be trying beef next!
No Bake Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Bars by Brown Eyed Baker – What a fun no bake treat!  These look like they would make a great lunch box treat!
Cinnamon Chip Muffins by Cooking with Libby – you all know we love muffins here, and my 7 year old is in love with anything cinnamon, so we will be trying these soon!
Jalapeno Cheddar Grilled Chicken by Two Peas and Their Pod – my husband will love this.   Anything spicy is always good.  This should be on the menu this week!

Hope you have a great weekend, thanks for stopping by!
