On Cinco de Mayo I posted a Vanilla Bean Banana Muffin recipe that is to die for. But the thing is… banana muffins are not what you would call ‘festive’ for this holiday. Therefore, even though I didn’t have time to get step-by-step photos ready, I thought I should at least post one recipe this week in honor of Cinco de Mayo. {I will try to get a step-by-step for this recipe up soon though!}

Strawberry-Peach Smoothie with Spinach via applestoziti.com

I feel I posted my Strawberry-Peach Smoothie recipe a bit prematurely.

It was still missing something. And I was definitely not happy with the final photos I got of the smoothie. They were taken at night. They were taken in poor lighting. They were taken while holding my 5 month old. He was having a fussy, tired, I-want-your-undivided-attention kind of attitude at the time. Not your optimal picture-taking conditions.

But I am VERY happy with the UPDATED RECIPE!!!!

Toffee-Pecan Brown Sugar Cookie Bites

IMG_4733_2

Kind of a long title. But you know what you’re getting. Or at least you think you do. These were the recipe I was least excited for… and I liked them best. And they’re the easiest. Well, the fudge was pretty easy but powdered sugar destroys my kitchen. No matter how careful I am, it gets everywhere. EVERYWHERE.
