So, this is a complete random post with a lot of different “stuff” to it. So, here goes.
I got a surprise in the mail the other day- Popchips! I have seen them in the blog world recently and decided that I would like to try them out for myself. Seeing as salty is Hans treat of choice, I knew that he would love sampling potato chips too.
I loved the barbeque flavor but the other flavors were not that great. The texture is a bit off- with the bbq flavor I could get past that, but the other flavors were strong and not too tasty which made the texture even more apparent. Now, I am being completely honest here, if I had the choice between the original, sea salt & vinegar, and salt & pepper.. and regular potato chips then I would definitely choose the Frito Lay kind. However, the bbq was quite amazing, I am not really a potato chips gal and I would probably pick some of these babies up the next time I see them at the grocery store, so a little plus and a little minus for the popchips.
In other randomness, Miss Jaime asked how I prepare my breakfast cookies- so I thought I would do a little tutorial for you guys 😉
The ingredients: 1/2 cup oats, maple syrup, 1/2 banana, cinnamon and almond butter. Not shown: Vanilla soy milk.
I put the oats, banana, almond butter, cinnamon and about 1 tsp of maple syrup into a coffee mug to mix together. I do this for a few reasons: 1. Because I am messy and 2. Well, because I am messy. The first time I made the breakfast cookie I tried to mix it on the plate. Bad idea. My breakfast cookie ended up on my kitchen counter instead.
After, everything is mixed through I add some soy milk, just enough to get the right consistency. Then a put the breakfast cookie blob onto a plate, and smash it down with a spoon.
I spread out the breakfast cookie until it looks like this.
I put the breakfast cookie in the fridge overnight and it is ready for me to enjoy in the morning. If you haven’t ever tried the breakfast cookie, I urge you to try it.. it is so yummy!
Now, let’s talk a bit about baking. If you have been reading my blog for awhile then you probably already know that I love to bake anything and everything- from bread to cookies. Supposedly, I am known around Hans’ office for my baking and they have been asking me to bake something for them every week. This week, I baked peanut butter brownies from Smitten Kitchen.
Hans’ office brownies before I spread the chocolate ganache over them.
I let them cool completely and then layered the chocolate ganache and stuck them in the fridge until the chocolate had hardened.
Wow, don’t they look amazing?
Of course, Hans and I had to try them out before I handed them over to his office.
They seriously taste like Reese’s brownies. So good!
