Elli Quark Review | Is it yogurt or not??

elli-quark-yogurt-cheese-blueberry-review-02

Looks like yogurt, right?  Wrong.  Elli Quark is actually cheese!  Yeah, I’d never heard of quark before so I was a bit confused.  It looks and smells like yogurt but has a milder flavor – it’s missing that tangy bit of sourness that yogurts have.  Quark is a German style spoonable fresh cheese that has… read more »

Flavored peanut butter is ubiquitous nowadays and I get embarrassingly excited each time a new variety crosses my path.  When I heard about these fun flavors that PB Crave has been whipping up I knew that they needed a place of honor in my (rather large) collection of nut butters.  I mean, just look at… read more »

Pumpkin Pie Protein Shake

pumpkin-pie-protein-shake-smoothie-03

This is absolutely the yummiest protein shake I have ever made!  It’s like drinking healthy pumpkin pie out of a glass.  We had several large cans of pumpkin in our pantry leftover from some holiday baking plans that never transpired and I wanted a way to use some of it.  Thus, this shake was born.  I’ve… read more »

My Favorite Homemade Chex Mix

best-homemade-chex-mix-recipe-03

Even though Chex mix is typically considered more of a holiday snack, it somehow ended up in our spread of Super Bowl goodies this year.  I’ve tried many variations of Chex mix but I always go back to the classic combination of melted butter with Worcestershire sauce with garlic and onion powders.  There’s just nothin’… read more »

Red Velvet Oreos Have Arrived. That is all.

red-velvet-oreos-review-07

I’ve accepted that every time Oreo comes out with a new limited edition flavor, I’m gonna buy it.  And most of the time I’m not disappointed – those pumpkin spice Oreos from last fall were nothing short of glorious and the cookie dough variety from last spring were not too shabby either.  Well, here we… read more »
