My Life in Ecards

What’s up everyone?

In my head I actually said “Waz Up?” but I couldn’t find the courage to make that the first line of this post. Second line is much more acceptable.

So.,. It’s Friday, and as always that means today is totally awesome.

Anyways, as my typical Fridays go, today I have a nice variety of things to share with you all. First up is two awards that I was nominated for by Jessie Bear What Will You WearThe Sunshine Award and The Versatile Blogger Award. I’ve already been nominated for these two previously, so I’m just going to just do the seven random facts.

Super random facts for Fun Fact Friday. I love killing two birds with one stone.

fff-fun-facts-friday

I never know what to say though, so this time I just typed into Yahoo! “random questions” and came up with these 100 questions. For the purpose of this survey I just copied and pasted the first seven, so here they are!

  1. Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4. “with a hasty aside, “Don’t laugh! Act as if it was alright!” and, ordering…” (from Little Women)
  2. Stretch your left arm out as far as you can, What can you touch? Sheldon Cooper’s face.
  3. Before you started this survey, what were you doing? Watching Hulu. (see question below)
  4. What is the last thing you watched on TV? How about Hulu? The Mindy Project.
  5. Without looking, guess what time it is. 8:42
  6. Now look at the clock. What is the actual time? 8:51… Not bad. Not bad at all.
  7. With the exception of the computer, what can you hear? My neighbors opening and closing their windows… Ya. We have thin walls.

Now for some more randomness that I like to call…

And here are two of the recipes that I have been promising. Thank you for being so patient with me!

Sadly I can’t take credit for either one, but I will take credit for spreading the love and passing on these awesome Grain-Free, Paleo recipes.

Gluten-Free Coconut Flour Bread

From Cheeseslave.com

Nut-Free, Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, Peanut-Free

2013-02-12_15.43.08[1]

Ingredients:

  • 6 large organic eggs
  • 1/2 cup organic ghee*
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 3/4 cup coconut flour

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Blend all ingredients together in a food processor until smooth.
  3. Pour into a parchment lined (or oiled) 8×5 loaf pan.
  4. Bake in oven for 40 minutes. Let cool before slicing.

Substitution note: You can replace the ghee with organic butter, or maybe coconut oil. I’ve also read that to make the bread fluffier you can replace half of the fat with an equal amount of applesauce or squash puree, but I can’t guarantee those results.

Three-Ingredient Nut Butter Cookies

I honestly wish I could remember where I found this recipe… But I can’t. SORRY.

Dairy-Free, Nut-Free Option, Gluten-Free, Grain-Free, Peanut-Free, Dairy-Free

three-ingredient-nut-butter-cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup organic nut/seed butter (no sugar added)
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 large organic egg

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine all ingredients with a whisk or a fork until smooth.
  3. Using a tablespoon, scoop out the batter in small amounts onto an oiled, nonstick, or parchment-lined cookie sheet.
  4. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes (depending on size, thickness and oven).

—————————————————————————————

And now, I’m off to finish watching some Pretty Little Liars on Hulu, and then going to bed!

This weekend my brother has two basketball games that I have to attend, and on Saturday I am going with two of my old high school friends to watch Safe Haven!

—————————————————————————————

Answer one (or all) of the random questions above!

What are your plans for the weekend? Any new recipes to try?

Have you seen Safe Haven yet? If so, what did you think of it?

    • I actually wonder if there are people out there who aren’t on Team Sheldon, but on Team Leonard or Penny… That is just inconceivable 😛

      I hope you have a lot of fun on your date. Going to see a movie?

  1. Pssh pajamas by 7?? I’m in mine by 6:15 at the latest (i.e as soon as i get home from work, the first thing i do is put them on)…you just gave me another cookie recipe to use with my boys so thank you! and I am trying out this crock pot Mediterranean chicken dish Bethenny from Accidental Intentions sent me…looks sooo good and sooooooo easy!

    • Ah! You beat me! 😉

      I hope you like the cookie recipe! Make sure you pay close attention to them for the first batch. I managed to burn a few the first round 🙂 Haha.

      That recipe does sound good. I love crock pot recipes because they are so easy!

  2. omg I love everything about this post I don’t know what to comment on first. I definitely lol’d by myself at number 2 on your survey. Oh Sheldon. And yessss I love the Mindy Project! And I will DEFINITELY be making those cookies asap!

    • My parents have already made it three times since this weekend, so I believe you 🙂 When I used to do a lot of baking, I always had a hard time not eating it all in one sitting. Haha. I guess that’s why “single serving” recipes were created. Smart thinking…

  3. Just wanted to stop by and say hello and that I’ve recently discovered your blog. I love it! I think it’s fantastic reading. I can really relate to a lot of your posts and stories as well. I am a junior in college studying to be a dietitian, so the recipes and food updates especially keep me interested. But I love it all so far! Can’t wait to keep reading. 🙂

    • Wow. Thanks so much for commenting! I love meeting other college students interested in health.

      Have you ever considered starting your own blog? I’d love to read about what you’re learning! I considered going into dietetics for a while so I’m always interested to hear more 🙂

    • Hi Ashley. I think that you could leave the honey out and it would be fine. If you wanted to add stevia just check the conversion rates for whatever type you are wanting to use (granulated, liquid, powder, etc.). Also, Cheeseslave, the creator of the recipe, answered a question similar in her comments on whether or not you could remove the honey: http://www.cheeseslave.com/coconut-flour-bread/#comment-107297 So it should definitely work! 😀 Let us know what you end up trying in case anyone else has a question about using stevia!

Let me know what you think. Leave a reply!
