This week I’m bringing you my recipe for my ridiculously addictive No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bark. Believe me, you want this one in your arsenal people.
But first, its the end of another week and so its time for a little Friday Favorites action. This link up lets me look back and remember the things that made me smile. Sometimes it can feel hard to do, but once you get going you realize there is always something. Here are some of my random favourite things coming out of the past week!
Me!? Savoury say what!? Coming from a girl who drops all her salivary glands for bananas, peanut butter, dates, cinnamon buns and scones, the fact that I’ve been on a savory breakfast kick has got me doing some double takes. But for real, I’m just loving the salty thing. And the cheese thing… And the egg thing.
Gluten Free Cheese Toast with butta + Turkey Bacon + raspberries
I also have this coffee right now that pairs perfectly with bacon, I swear (ps I’m a huge coffee pairing nerd). Weird, but I’m diggin it.
Bacon/Egg/Cheese breakfast sandwich + fruit
Confession: Totally scorched the top of my bun and tried to hide it. #noshame
Specifically, Robert Munsch books. I am currently rehearsing for a childrens’ production of a medley of different Robert Munsch stories and the whole process has taken me completely back to my childhood. So much nostalgia. My family definitely owned allll his books – at least all the older (best) ones – but I was surprised at how many I remembered. Childrens’ books are just so special. The simplicity. The illustrations. The lessons. So so special. My child is going to read all the old classics that I did… I don’t care what he/she says.
Wow. Still going off this guy, but quickly making my way to the end. Biggest craving of the week = kabocha + peanut butter + broccoli. This may have happened numerous times (as well as finding its way into most/all meals).
Kabocha + pb + steamed broccoli with salt
#Strangebutgood? Definitely good.
And yes this includes in my cereal.
Kabocha + peanut butter + love grown oats + milky goodness
Moments of solitude
I really needed these thing week. One was taken by actually skipping out on class (hush hush). I mentally just did not have it in me to sit through any sort of lecture, so I took myself to a cafe, wrote, and stared out at the rain. Far more productive.
Another was found in my rehearsal hall while it was completely empty. It was perfectly silent, so I enjoyed a romantic little dinner for one under the dim lights. These were my favourite moments of the week. They turned me around from some cloudy feelings.
Bright green sweatpants to be exact. Feeling sad? Nothing a little color can’t help with.
No Bake Freezer Treats
Specifically, this No Bake Crispy Chocolate Peanut Butter Bark which I’ve been having every. single. night. I think it was actually a recipe-fail-turn-brilliant discovery I had a year ago, and have been making ever since.
Super easy and fast and made with simple, healthy ingredients. Eaten straight out of the freezer for a crunchy and sweet treat – especially welcomed on a summer’s evening!
I warn you though, this stuff is addicting!
