The fall season brings so much stress.  First we have the back to school season, and that is immediately followed by the holiday season.  This also just happens to be the time that is the busiest for my business.  With everything going on, it is absolutely essential that I am feeling well and have plenty of energy.  One thing that I find helps with this is Emergen-C®.  Today I’m going to tell you why Emergen-C is a fall must-have for me, and I’ve got a delicious “better for you” popsicle recipe featuring the product!

Emergen-C is a dietary supplement.  It comes in powder form that, when mixed with water, makes a delicious fizzy drink that’s great for a morning pick me up or as an electrolyte replacement after your workout.  It also provides a great source of Vitamin C and antioxidants for immune support and B vitamins to enhance your energy without caffeine.  [Read more…]

When I was in college, I used to walk in to my early morning classes with my coffee cup in hand, but I wasn’t sipping a latte or cappuccino, I was sipping a Carnation Breakfast Essentials drink!  To this day, I still enjoy starting off my morning with Carnation Breakfast Essentials, mixed in milk or  milk and fruit for a quick and delicious smoothie.  Today I’m going to tell you a little more about the breakfast drink I love, and I’m going to share a recipe that uses Carnation Breakfast Essentials in a whole new way.  (If the idea of eating cookies for breakfast sounds good to you, keep reading! I have some Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Cookies you will love!) [Read more…]

No Bake Banana Pudding Pie

Banana Pudding Pie and Slice

I LOVE banana pudding.  When I was growing up, it was one of my favorite sweets!  A few years ago, I ran across a great uncooked banana pudding.  I posted the recipe here, and to this day, it is still one of my site’s most visited posts.  I love banana pudding anytime of year, but I think of it as one of the official desserts of summer, so the other day, I decided to make it, but this time, I decided to do something a little different…a banana pudding pie!

Banana Pudding Milkshake

Banana Pudding Shake with Blue Belle
Today I have an amazingly simple treat for you!  Growing up, I absolutely LOVED banana pudding in the summer time! Last year I tried Chick-Fil-A’s Banana Pudding Milkshake and was absolutely in love, but of course, they only had it for a limited time.  So this spring I found myself basking in the glory of Zaxby’s Banana Pudding Milkshake, which is just as equally delicious!  I now hear that it will be a permanent menu item at Zaxby’s….and indeed, they’ve just now brought back the shake at Chick-Fil-A (again, for a limited time).

But the other day I decided that I wanted to make my own.  I remembered trying some banana pudding ice cream by Blue Belle years ago, so I went to Wal-Mart with high hopes and was very excited to find this ice cream in my freezer. Yay!  Now I can have a banana pudding milkshake any time I want, and I get a lot more shake for my buck!

By the way, I made this shake using my Ninja! That thing is awesome!

Banana Cake Mix Cookies

Banana Cake Mix Cookies

I love cake mix recipes, and I especially love cake mix cookies! Over the weekend I had a couple of ripe bananas that needed to be eaten, so I decided to look up a recipe for Banana  Cake Mix Cookies!  I used a recipe I found over at Best Ever Cookie Collection, making just a couple of slight changes.  And their recipe was based on one found in Cake Mix Cookies by Camilia V. Salisbury.

My cookies turned out absolutely sweet and delicious, and I’d definitely make them again!  If you love banana, you should give them a try too!  Hope you enjoy!
