From my last post about Hair Products I Use, thanks for filling me in on some of your favorites.  I’m glad the beauty and hair product junkies readers came out to comment.  It’s not just food and games around here.  I like to talk hair and MAC Makeup, too.

And okay, chocolate talk is a beautiful thing, too.

1. Have you seen any great recipes lately around the ‘sphere or made anything recently that you’re especially proud of?

2. Weekend Plans?

I’m working, and Scott is going to be home.  After a week of single parenting and working fulltime, I’m ready for a break and some help!

And we may go on some Easter egg hunts (the plastic variety) and the Easter Bunny will  probably stop by with a Easter Basket goodies.

Happy Easter, Happy Passover, and Happy Earth Day (belated)!


  1. Wow, what a selection, thank you for sharing. I like the look of the cakes in a jar, I don’t think that I would make them, but I like the photo :-).


  2. All are attractive me so much!

  4. just like for books/novels, and movies, the number of yummy recipes in the blog world makes me think “so many recipes (novels, movies), so little time!”
    off to toronto today to give my SIL a break, and take the nieces for a few hours – like you, she’s been single-parenting this week since my brother is away for work…win-win because she’ll get some time to herself, and i’ll get the nieces! :)
    happy easter weekend, averie!

  5. averie! these recipes almost leave me speechless! the blog world really knows their stuff! YUM!
    Happy Easter to you and your family. Say hi to the easter bunny for me skylar!

  6. SMORES CAKE IN A JAR!?!?!?!

    I can’t think of anything else to say…that just blew my mind…

  7. Sounds like a wonderful weekend ahead of you with your family! Enjoy it!!! :)

    What a great week of foods – the Lemon Meringue bird nest look adorable and so good!

  8. I love these posts! Such a great idea. Also, your blog has such a great and positive energy about it – and your photography has really evolved recently – you’ve made leaps and bounds and it’s been awesome to watch you develop such an awesome passion and talent.

  9. These all look so delish! I need more meals in a day!

    I hope you have a great weekend! We need some good weather here in Ohio…rain, rain, rain!

  10. All of those recipes caught my eye this week too! They all look delicious!

    For Easter tomorrow, we are going to church, going to the Husband’s Grandma’s house, and then going to Maggiano’s with my family.

  11. I recently made a vegetarian chili I was super proud of! Nothing spectacular but it sure tasted good :))) I was surprised I was actually able to make it due to being a horrible cook most of the time ha! You can see a picture here – and then someone asked for ingredients so those are here ha –

    & mmmm the Super Fluffy Peanut Butter Carob Chip Pancakes, The Tart of No, and “Know Your Roots” Salad look soo soo yummy !

  12. Love the post and thanks for giving us more recipe ideas! I think I’m gunna make the Pumpkin Pie Dough Balls this AM for my fiance :) YUM!

    1) I made Angela’s (ohsheglows) Peanut Butter Jam & Banana Pizza 2 nights ago. I have NEVER been more proud of myself; it was SO good and it turned out perfect!!! I don’t think I’ve ever eaten anything so good!!! I honestly can’t stop thinking about it (brough Here’s her link:

    2) Tonight we’re celebrating Easter over a family dinner. I’m used to a huge gathering with extended family on Easter Sunday over brunch, but this year I will be spending it with my fiance’s family and they just aren’t as big on get-togethers (nor is his extended family nearby). So, I will miss my fam this year (who’s all in Ohio, I now live in Nebraska!) but, sometimes you gotta make sacrifices right? :)

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  13. Believe it or not, my cat somehow managed to press send on my previous post before I was done editing! Hahaha … I was just going to say that I brought the pizza into work and it disappeared immediately. I am still dreaming about it now :)

  14. Ooh, that roasted vegetable tart looks delicious; very pizza-like.

    I haven’t even figured out what to make for Easter tomorrow; I’m paralyzed with too many choices!

  15. omg… smores in a jar? Where do I sign? I NEED to make that in some way, shape, or form. hubba hubba…

  16. Yum! I want a smore cake so bad! I might have to try veganizing the recipe!

  20. Hope you guys have a nice day together and Skylar finds lots of eggs! ;-)

  21. Oooh! Those are some delicious photos!

  22. I love these “around the blogworld” type posts, but I always end up with a ton of tabs open! Not that I’m complaining, it’s a great way to find new blogs. Holly’s vegetable tart has been on my mind every since she posted it. Might have to try that!

  23. That food would have definitely made MY list!! How Sweet It Is has some INCREDIBLEEEE looking sweets. And so does your blog :)

  24. Mmmm so many delicious things! Thanks for sharing, I’ve been looking for some new blogs to read so this is perfect!

  25. I really want to try Angela’s creamy avocado risotto Although I’m going to swap quinoa for the barley. It looks so good!

  26. thanks for the shoutout love! you are oh so sweet :)

  27. So many great recipes here! Yum on the pancakes, the s’mores jar, chili, and dough balls. Which remind me I have more almond milk pulp to use up. in my freezer. :-)

    1. Yes, the starred posts section of my Google Reader is getting insane. The problem is no time over the last few weeks.
    2. Yard work, hopefully a little playing in the kitchen and a family gathering for Easter.

  28. I found your website a few months ago and finally made your protein bars. OMG…they are so good. My boyfriend who is super picky loved them. I’m crowning you as my favourite health recipe blog and saving your recipes permanently in my food folder! I can’t wait to get some veganaise to make your salad dressing…you rock!

  31. Those s’mores cakes in a jar caught me eye too! Also Jenna’s apple braid on Eat Live Run and Caitlin’s quiche cornbread thingy on Healthy Tipping Point. Lots of great eats this week.
    I’m celebrating Easter with my family, but my husband just got a lot of extra work hours for this weekend, which would normally be awesome but kinda bad timing.

  32. good lord! Amazing new recipes for me, thank you for doing this, it rocks! the problem is I have narrowed down what I want to make this week, and now I see these! What am I to do?, retire and cook/bake all day? sounds good to me!

  35. Thanks for the link to my post. Seriously, it means a lot.

    I haven’t made anything for ages. I have some mint chocolate chip “ice cream” chilling in the fridge right now though. Can’t wait for it to be done!

  36. Delicious pics! I crave for chocolate, will make a chocolate cake for Easter Sunday. Have a nice weekends!

  37. I made Kath’s Dough Boy Smoothie this week & loved the quick and tasty breakfast!

  38. Weekend plans…..guess there is yet another puppy rescue in East St. Louis.
    Digging, and digging, and ripping apart collapsed homes in search of 2 more puppies! Yikes. Add that to the excitement of insane tornadoes ripping through St. Louis! And cutting endless hours of videos of stray puppies from the streets of East St. Louis (
    Throw in a dash of sleep, or not. Endless amounts of Yerba Mate. A hubby practicing away to take yet more auditions. Lots of cats & dogs sleeping and being lazy since we basically are entering a tornado, rain season. Yes, there is a reason property values are cheaper here!! It is no Southern California!! But we will have a raw vegan place opening in a couple of weeks! Puravegan!

  39. Thanks for the feature! All of these look awesome :)

  40. Thanks for featuring the OCP’s, Averie! And thanks for posting the others too – those dough balls are calling my name! :)

    Encuentro que no sois derecho.

  43. I am incredibly proud of my vegan baked potato soup that I made last week… it’s seriously some professional stuff! :D I haven’t had much time to cook lately AT ALL, so I was really excited that it came out so well!

  44. Those recipes all look good! Thanks for sharing.

    I see yummy things in the blogosphere all the time … you should see my bookmarks! I have a list that is a mile long, and I plan on getting to each and every recipe.

  45. Happy Easter to all and your photos are awesome.

  46. Thanks for posting those links, Averie! Some of those recipes look divine…

  47. I’m not a S’mores fan, but Jessica’s S’mores Cake in A Jar photo looks amazing!

    Proud that I finally figured out the rice paper wrap thing. Been loving those all weekend. Great for taking to the paintball field.
