Cowboy Bark – Trader Joe’s CopyCat Recipe

This weekend I was in Texas moving in my sister. What better housewarming gift for a new Texas resident than Cowboy Bark?     This Trader Joe’s Copycat Recipe is ready in 30 minutes. You can choose to be completely Trader Joe’s authentic by buying ingredients at the store or you can make it with food found at the grocery store.     Definitely chop up everything before you melt the chocolate. It’s a race against the clock.     It’s all about speed here because you have to top off the chocolate before it hardens. Measure out the toffee bits and pretzels, chop the nuts, crush the Oreos.   PrintCowboy Bark – Trader Joe’s CopyCat Recipe Prep Time: 5 minutesTotal Time: 35 minutes Ingredients16 ounces dark baking chocolate (I used Nestle’s dark baking chocolate) 1 and ¾ cup mini pretzels ⅓ cup roasted and lightly salted peanuts ⅓ cup […]

I’m Back with Biscotti {Lemon + Cardamom and Chocolate Chip}

Long time, no post. Sorry about that. Hopefully these crispy, delectable biscotti will make up for it. It is not only one recipe, but TWO: lemon – cardamom and classic chocolate chip.  I made these before I went on vacation as a small thank-you gift to my incredible teachers for the tough past school year. Reflecting on the school makes me realize how much I am ready for summer. So as my last hurrah of the school year, these biscotti were made and sent out in cute little bags. For those that know me, they know that I get a little obsessed with lemon in the summertime. Anything lemon from lemonade to lemon toothpaste, I can’t help it – it’s just so good and citrus-y. So when I came across this recipe, my heart melted a little. Lemon and cardamom? I’m in! But I also wanted to eat chocolate that […]

Healthy Post-Workout Snacks

For those that know me, they know that I love to workout. When I don’t have homework (which happens a lot less than I would like), soccer, or am not cooking – I will most likely be lifting. “Of course you were at the gym,” they say. I can’t help it! For me, pushing myself is a way to destress and motivating to see what my body is capable of. But I get hungry. Not hungry, I am starving. All the time. Especially after a game or workout. I feel like nothing can satisfy the never-ending pit I call my stomach. When my stomach starts to grumble, all I can think about is what I am going to eat. To make sure I get the most out of workout, it is my priority to replenish with either a meal or snack high in protein and good carbs. In fact, I actually try […]
