I had a hot date

December 21, 2009

…this morning with one Haute Diggity Date.

Haute Diggity Date

Mmmm… this bar was fantastic. I could really taste the coconut from the granola and you could see all of the ingredients in the bar:


Veggie Scramble

Lunch was an Egg white scramble with red onion, carrot, spinach, pinto beans, garlic & herbs topped with hummus and eaten with Wasa Crackers.

Last night I made some Apricot Almond Cookies via my own recipe, which I created moment by moment. The recipe needs some improvising, but I’m content with how they turned out. Not too sweet, perfect texture.

Apricot Almond Cookies

Cookies are the best.

Of course, almond butter on the cookies is even better.

I love making my own recipes. Especially for supper.

What’s the best recipe you’ve ever made?

PS- My younger brother, Nick, awoke this morning enraged. He has the flu, and complained about how he couldn’t sleep all night… but when he did sleep, he had the SAME dream over and over again. He said it wasn’t a good dream. He put it in his own language:

“It was like sitting through Atonement. It sucked. Or any other Keira Knightely movie that isn’t Pirates of the Carribean. I was just like “Why am I here?”

    Just watched another episode of Dexter. I REALLY thought the ice truck killer was Perry…ackkk. I am dying!!!

  8. louisianagrown Says:

    I would say the best thing I’ve ever made is the bread I baked the other day. It was also the most challenging. That break baking stuff is serious!

  9. daintyvegan Says:

    Hahaha, your brothers comment is great! I loved Atonement though..

    Your cookies look so yummy. :3 I made some today too but it wasn’t my own recipe. Unfortunately, I’m not too great at making my own things.. I still need TONS of practice.

  10. seekmyself Says:

    Apricots and almonds together sound delicious! I’ve never made a recipe from scratch when I bake, but I rarely ever follow recipes exactly either. I’d like to come up with my own, but I’m afraid of it being a flop and I don’t like to waste food…

    I’ve wanted to try those bars for a while now, but I don’t think they sell them here *wah*… If I get really desperate, I’ll have to order online 🙂

  11. Kathleen Says:

    HAHAHA your brother sounds hilarious! And HOLY CRAP your food looks amazing…Almond butter on a cookie? Ingenius! 🙂

  12. determinedtoshine Says:

  14. Rachael Says:

    Now that looks like the perfect date… No need to dress up, no awkward conversation and no wondering if there’s a kiss at the end of the night!
    On a side note the orange looks so pretty, like a sun or a flower. Or a sunflower! Your brother sounds so funny, even though I feel bad laughing at his suffering;)


  15. Anne Says:

    Those cookies look delicious! My fave recipe (more like combo) is my chocolate greek yogurt vitatop parfaits 🙂 I hope your bro feels better! That quote is priceless, though 😉

  16. katie Says:

    Thanks girl!! Yeah the burnt ones are actually my fiances favorite!!!! lol!!!

  17. peanutbutterfingers Says:

    i love your brother’s quote! too, too funny. (he should see love actually b/c that’s a good movie other than pirates that she’s been in – although being a guy, he’d probably find that one painful as well!)

  18. kbwood Says:
