This is a guest post by Kirbie's Cravings.I’ve made many, many Nutella cookie variations and here is my latest one: Soft Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies.More Here...
I took my favorite soft chocolate chip cookie recipe and adapted it to incorporate Nutella. The cookies came out soft and slightly fudgy. The cookies are really good, though the Nutella flavor is really light. The Nutella causes the middle of the cookies to have a little fudginess. They also stay soft for a really long time thanks to the pudding mix.

Weather forecast is for the upper 90s this Friday so I’m still cranking out the ice pops and using my new Blendtec toy whenever I get a chance.More Here...
I’ve already made avocado ice cream, so I thought I’d try my hand at avocado cream pops. Of course you can’t make ice pops as creamy as ice cream or else they never firm up. So these are icier but still really tasty. And I love the bright natural green color created by the pureed avocados.

Minoo came up with recipes with ingredients that she collected in her Community Supported Agriculture Box Program (CSA) for this summer. The Zucchini Green Bean Soup turns out to like ratatouille.

In fact the bean is not just green but came in shades of purple. The zebra like purple bean is called Heirloom Bean.More Here...

I grew up visiting the Portland Saturday Market on weekends with my family. Its an open air market in downtown near the waterfront where handmade goods and delicious foods are sold by local vendors. Of course my favorite part of the trip has always the tricky task of eating a giant Elephant Ear.
Christine Hall of Alexandria, Va., 66, claims to have lost close to 80 by consuming nothing but foods and beverages from Starbucks. The law librarian has dropped from 190 pounds to 114 pounds. Hall, who tracks her calorie intake online via MyPlate calorie tracker at livestrong.com, began eating exclusively at Starbucks because the franchise is convenient and reveals its calorie information.
Hall told USA Today: “I have a busy schedule, so it just works for me. I know exactly what I’m getting. I can plan my day in advance because I’ve memorized the calories in everything. It’s not like I’m having a bagel every day,” she said. “I’m mixing it up and making sure I get protein, fruits and vegetables.”More Here...
