S’More Cookies

I had to share this delicious cookie recipe!


Shut Up!

And here it is!!

S’More Cookies

In the bowl of a stand mixed cream together

  • 1 Cup Unsalted Butter
  • 1 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla (pure)

Once combined add 2 Eggs one at a time

Separately combine

  • 2 Cups Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Corn Starch(This is the secret ingredient that will give you soft chewy cookies)
  • 1/2 Cup Graham Crumbs (I made mine but you can use store bought)
  • 2 Teaspoons Baking Powder
  • Pinch of salt

Slowly add to mixer until just combined

Then add

  • 1 Cup Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Cup Mini Marshmallows

Combine by hand

Wrap and chill dough for minimum one hour! (VIP Step…..do not skip)

Preheat Oven to 400C (Seams high but trust me)

Use a 1/8 of a cup measuring cup to portion cookies

Bake for approximately 8 minutes but keep a close eye. You want to them out about 2 minutes before you think they look done!

Cool on baking tray for a few minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely

And as long as you aren’t a moron like me you won’t burn them to a crisp…..



So I managed to make about a dozen that I didn’t turn to charcoal!


The ones that did turn out ok were delish……even though they aren’t much to look at……..

What I Ate Wednesday (WIAW)

Since I have only been doing this blog for a couple weeks I haven’t really established any rhyme or reason to it yet! I like the freedom of posting whatever I want whenever I feel like posting it, but sometimes its nice to have some predictability!

So considering I cook and bake daily I will try to do What I Ate Wednesday! (WIAW), posting any recipes from the week that I consider worthy of sharing! I will also post the good, the bad and the ugly of what I have been eating!


Yep……exciting eh!

I tend to eat the same things most of the time, unless I have a bit of a craving for something specific. I definitely have some basic go to meals. Work meals tend to look like this….

Salads for a few days!
Good ol’ broccoli and chicken


I tend to be a lot more creative on days off (obviously) as I have more time.

First off my day can not start without Coffee. On my days off I am able to make my Coconut Oil Coffee

Add one cup of hot coffee to your blender with 1 teaspoon of Coconut Oil and a touch of Stevia (if wanted) blend until frothy

Coconut Oil Coffee

This is creamy, frothy and just plain delicious. Give it a try!

Typical breakfast on days off could include



  • Set oven to broil
  • Cut in half
  • Sprinkle Stevia and Cinnamon
  • Broil in oven for approximately 5 minutes

This is the only way I eat Grapefruit. It is way more tasty and juicy when you heat it this way……


PB&J Cottage Cheese

  • 1/2 Cup Cottage Cheese
  • 2 TBSP PB2 reconstituted with water
  • 1 teaspoon of jam or jelly of choice

This is so freaking delicious

I will usually head to the gym or out for a run after this, and when I return I am famished. I have to make something right away or this might happen


So the easiest and quickest thing is a smoothie

My go to would be a Green Monster Smoothie or a Smoothie Bowl

I have a million Smoothie recipes and I will post those often. Here is a Smoothie Bowl recipe. This is kind of my standard base recipe you can modify the add on’s for your taste.

  • 1/4 cup old fashion oats
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tbsp Chia Seed
    mix together with 1/2 cup almond milk-Let sit for a minimum of 15 minutes or as long as overnight
    Add to the blender with
  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp organic protein powder
  • and 1/3 cup almond milk
  • 1 teaspoon Xanthan Gum
  • Blend, pour into a bowl and add some berries of your choice…..

Sushi Date Night

Last night, I collected on a bet Shane had lost a couple weeks ago. We went out of Sushi at the place we went to on Valentines Day. It was delicious and we were looking forward to going back!

After a great run yesterday and running some errands (Gym Days are the Best Days) we got ready and headed out.

Waiting for Shane to be ready!
And we are ready!

We didn’t think that it would be too busy so I didn’t bother with a reservation….Mistake!

Apparently this place has caught on and we walked in the a long wait! We were initially told 35 minutes, which didn’t seam too bad. So we settled in for the wait!

50 minutes later….we were still waiting…….I was starting to become a bit delirious and irrational at this point from hunger…….


Finally we got a table, I am just happy the food stated coming very quickly!

Salmon and Snapper Sashimi
Salmon Sushi
And of course some delicious rolls

It was delicious and worth the week of workouts I will have to do to burn it all off!

Today is a rest day as I have worked out all week and I am so sore! But I will be making some homemade protein bars and power balls, and will post the recipes later!

I Love Sundays!
