Dessert/ Dinner

See What You Made Me Do?

Well, I am up to my neck in E-Cookbook submissions and writing and it is out of control!!! Therefore, I totally and 100% justify this decision:




Oh yes I did. Granted there reallyyyyyy wasn’t much left (I swear!)—maybe two servings or so. It was SO good though and I haven’t actually eaten out of the ice cream container in probably years. It was rather fun.

Now back to business!

I hereby declare that the e-cookbook is now CLOSED to submissions!

I have about 80 recipes total and am going to take all afternoon tomorrow to finish everything up. Starting on Thursday you will be able to buy your very own copy of the e-cookbook for a mere $10 donation. It really is for a great cause, folks! Thank you SO much to all those that participated by sending me a recipe (or recipes!). This cookbook is wonderful because of YOU! I will go into more details about purchasing e-cookbooks on Thursday. Until then, I will work to finish by deadline! 🙂

The bone scan this afternoon went about as well as expected. It felt nice to lay down and relax for about 20 minutes and I actually almost fell asleep. I see my sports med doctor again on Friday afternoon so I will know more then! When I got home, I was starving my face off and threw together a quick dinner.


This would be the other half of my tofu block from Sunday night baked in traditional style (same as Sunday) and served with a big green salad with goddess dressing and a toasted Ezekiel with butter and raspberry preserves! I inhaled it all! 🙂

And, well, you already know about my dessert! :O

I leave you with a new contest brought to us by our friends over at Arnold Bread!

Until May 4th, kids ages 6-18 can enter the Arnold Best in Class Sandwich Challenge, a contest to make a creative and well-balanced sandwich recipe using Arnold 100% Natural Bread. Four winners from separate age groups will receive a $5,000 donation to their school and a $1,500 savings bond. So moms, tell your kids!! 🙂 Recipes should be submitted here!

18 year olds have all the fun. Clearly. 😉

See you tomorrow!!

    YAY Jenna!! You did me proud with that container! There’s something about eating out of the container that makes me happy – I think it’s because it’s “illegal” 😉

    I am totally entering that sandwich contest with Abbers!! 🙂

    I hope the bone scan went great. I get them every two years or so…I’m high risk. I guess when you have small bones, tall, blond and a family history (all those = Polly) I am in danger. PLUS my no dairy doesn’t help! So… Pol is into the almonds, salmon, and spinach thing. 😉 I’ve also heard calcium is overrated, but we DO need it! Plus vit D of course! (where are you sunshine?)

    Hi to you sweetness and yahoo for Edy’s slow churned. Also… yay for the cookbook!!! You are a delight!!

    oh!! Do you have any ideas for our next book of the Bible to read next month? I might start on Tuesday… thinking about… hmmm. Maybe Timothy? or Galations?

    Cool new sidebar–that’s awesome…wonder if I can rig something like that up…not too tech savy.
    Also eating out of the ice cream container…fantastic.

    Happy cookbooking!

    Hi Jenna – I really enjoy the site and I get lots of ideas for foods from it (especially breakfast-related, my fave except for dessert). I was wondering if you could explain what you like or think is beneficial about the Ezekiels products (and also any downsides, known problems for any conditions/sensitivities, etc.). I’ve seen them at WF but haven’t ever had them – but you’ve been eating them a lot lately, so I’m thinking about trying them. You’ve gotten me back on nut butters (including choc pb) and hummus lately (craving it last few days), you got me to try VitaTops, all successes (I don’t love the vitabrownie as much) so I figure I might try other things you show also. I want to try your fitness cookie and overnight oats recipes too. Wish I could taste the yummy stuff you bake at work. Best, and happy hump day!

    I think the ice cream was a very good decision!

    have you ever thought about using a foam roller on your shins?? I have been using one on my IT band and it has done WONDERS for my knee. i.e. I went from not being about to run 2 miles to running a half marathon in a week. Yes my knee hurt during it but not even near as much as it did before the magic of the foam roller!!!

      That dressing is by Annie’s and it is great! Sort of a thicker, creamier style of dressing but made with all natural ingredients. Definitely try it! I love Annie’s Woodstock Dressing as well!


      Ooo I LOVE Ezekiel english muffins! I have been in love with them for years actually and they are so good for you! You can read all about the Ezekiel line of products on their website, but basically they are made with sprouted wheat and lentils and are whole grain and high in protein (because of the sprouted beans). The english muffins are thick, dense and wonderful. Definitely one of my top five favorite food items ever! Go to for more info!

    I’m glad I’m not the only one who does the forbidden eating-straight-from-the-container/bag/box 🙂
    Just wondering, does the e-cookbook have any gluten free dessert recipes?
    Have a great day tomorrow, Jenna!

    I love finishing things ( I have to pre-portion or else I get in trouble!) especially when the peanut butter jar gets down to almost nothing. I call it a peanut butter party and get every last bit out of the jar, it’s highly satisfying!! Your dessert looks like yum!

    you mean some people use bowls for ice cream? out of the carton tastes so much better for some reason….i’ve been known to squirt whipped cream directly into the ice cream container and attack with a spoon! your dessert needs no justification 🙂
