Skinny Banana Blueberry Shake

I’m so excited about this Skinny Banana Blueberry Shake because it’s one of my best tasting shake creations!  I make shakes and smoothies often.  I don’t tend to follow recipes but instead I just throw a bunch of ingredients in the blender, usually whatever I have in the fridge.  Sometimes I have a winner and sometimes not so much. I love getting inspiration from my fellow food bloggers, family, friends, professional chefs, you name it.  Have you ever heard of Sally’s Baking Addiction?  Sally may have a baking addiction, but I have an addiction to seeing what Sally’s been up to.  I’ve only been a …

Simple Coffee Table Decor

I find decorating my coffee table so much fun because the possibilities are endless.  Technically I have a “cocktail table” since there are little shelves that you can pull out to place your drink.  How neat is that? The table is pretty traditional with its round shape and dark wood.  I have a nice blank slate to work with.  I wanted a simple, uncluttered look using neutral tones, which and I did by using only three neutral colored objects. I still adore the cork screws in the over sized round glass container that I made a few months back.  Wine Corks Decor can coordinate …

Cafe Frappe

Are you the kind of person who drinks your iced coffee fast or slow?  I could be either depending on my mood.  I had a lot of errands to run this weekend so I drank my favorite iced coffee, this cafe frappe, like it was a race.  The result…I felt like Speedy Gonzales for the rest of the day.  Am I dating myself?  He’s a Warner Brothers Looney Tunes cartoon character, a Mexican mouse that runs around really fast.  Anyway, I had a lot of energy.  🙂 If you love iced coffee then you’ve come to the right place.  A cafe frappe is …
