First of all, who watched the DWTS premier? Bueller? My absolute favorite dance was Amber and Derek. Gah, is it just me or does this show just make you wanna dance?!

--- Back to my originally scheduled thoughts ---

Sunday night I whipped up this little ditty.

Double chocolate peanut butter mug cake

Then made one for M, and I made his life. I know, I can tell. I'm psychic. Cuz I'm working on my white carb addiction I subbed whole wheat flour in mine, and it was the

Then, I made this guy.

Gwyneth Paltrow's Banana "Ice Cream" is delish and super easy. I made it tonight and I may never eat real ice cream again.

And proceeded to eat three of the four servings. In one sitting. But technically that counts as sharing, because I gave M almost one serving. And I don't want to be potassium deficient. 

Then it occurred to me I hadn't expressed my love for the Pinterest recipes I've attempted lately. The one's I really dig earned a spot on my Eat page, which is basically like getting a tattoo of your favorite persons name on your bicep.

Recipe for Two: Taco Salad with Creamy Cilantro Dressing Recipes from The Kitchn

The dressing was ridiculous (in a good way), but you can never go wrong with cilantro. Fact.

Brown butter pancakes

Whipped up these bad boys on the fourth of July (post - here). Super freaking delicious. Party in my mouth - with a mariachi band.

S'more Bars

These guys are a great alternative to whipping out the fire pit, and the marshmallow fluff is so ooey gooey it makes me drool. 

Baked Banana Chips - toddlers love these!  Slice bananas very thin (1/8"), brush with lemon juice mixed with just a little water, sprinkle with cinnamon and kosher salt.  Bake at 250F for about 2 hours, turning after 90 mins. Let cool (the longer they cool the crispier they become).  Smear a little peanut butter between them if you like.  Perfect sweet little treat!  Enjoy!

LOVE nanner chips. This, however did not produce the crisp, crunchy snack I reach for. More along the lines of fresh tasting, soft, and a bit labor intense for my attention span.  But my entire apartment smelled incredible. So there's that. 

Skinny Spaghetti Squash Alfredo

Made this guy when my youngest sister was over a few months back, and she dubbed me her favorite as a result. 

Tip: the sauce us thicker and has more developed flavors the next day.

Bacon Hearts

Not exactly a recipe, but more a creative way to express your love, for bacon someone special (post - here)

Cauliflower Crust Garlic "Breadsticks"

When we had friends over awhile back, I thought this would be super neat to try. It is a bit laborious to prep and make in the same day if you are short on time, but this is my new favorite alternative to pizza crust. Plus three out of the four of us thought it rocked (post - here).
