Krispy Kreme’s Valentine’s Donuts!!


I believe the 2 heart shaped filled donuts, were here last year, but the ‘X’ and ‘O’ are new 🙂 The 2 hearts were filled with cream, and were good, not outrageously sweet. Unfortunately for us, the ‘X’ and ‘O’ were much sweeter. Will pass on those, if they bring them back next year. If you’re a Krispy Kreme fan, and want to try one of these, make your way over to a local store before Valentine’s Day comes and goes!!

Cookie Dough Protein Bites

These look yummy…and healthy to boot!! I, personally won’t add the protein powder, because I’m not into that. Can’t wait to make them…

I used to love raw cookie dough…licking the bowl, the spoon and even eating the cookies before they went into the oven! I don’t know many people who don’t like it, as a matter of fact. Usually cookie dough is loaded with sugar, white flour, butter and eggs. It is definitely not something healthy to be snacking on. That is why I decided to make a clean, healthy, protein-packed recipe to snack on and I think I’ve come up with a winner.

Beer…Dip…Dessert…The Best Parts of Super Bowl 2014!!

As you all know by now, the Super Bowl, was a pretty one sided and boring game…at least to me and my hubby!! But thankfully, we had some good beer and food, to make up for it. We came across this English beer called Innis & Gunn Oak Aged Beer. The description of the flavour is what caught my eye, with notes of toffee and vanilla. It was darker then regular, but not as dark as others, so it’s a good in between flavour profile. We liked it, and will have this again sometime 🙂

I gave another Buffalo Chicken Dip a try this year, for the Super Bowl, and it turned out better then the last one. It may have been that I subbed flaked turkey, and ranch dressing, instead of blue cheese? Yes it was still pretty salty, but the flavour was just better. I halved the recipe, and it made enough for 2 medium ramekins, so we have another serving we can heat up and enjoy. Goes great with cut veggies, crackers or chips of your choice.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

I had 2 Mutsu/Crispin apples, that were very much past their prime, since we picked them back in October LOL So, I looked up some recipes of what to make with them, and when I came across this simple apple crisp recipe – I knew I wanted to make it. The 2 apples made exactly 1 serving for each of us, so we ended up having it as our dessert on Sunday night. It was very yummy!! Though a bit sweet, since this recipe is more geared towards, a more tart apple. Ours were quite sweet, so if I use granny smith’s next time, it’ll be perfect. Definitely serve this with a half scoop of ice cream…it’s the only way we eat it!!

Cheers!! And Bon Appetit Everyone 🙂

Somersby Apple Flavoured Cider

I haven’t had alcoholic cider in YEARS. But, when we saw this one at our local LCBO on Saturday, we thought we’d give it a try. Normally, we hate canned alcohol, but this actually tasted all right. It’s quite evil though, because it doesn’t taste like alcohol, so you could drink a LOT of it LOL My hubby and I shared this one can though. If they put it in bottles, I’d try it again for sure!!

Cheers Everyone 🙂
