S'more Bark for a pregnant friend!

One of my nearest and dearest friends is having a baby! I have known for several weeks but it is now public knowledge and I'm thrilled to be sharing the news! The day after I found out I had to go visit my girlfriend and feed her of course. That day she had her first Vietnamese tofu hoagie from Pho Street and she loved it!  I have a thing about wanting to feed and bake for pregnant friends. I sure its because I know how much I loved eating tasty treats while I was expecting.

Miranda came to our house for the Fourth of July and was disappointed I did not make my ever so easy cracker toffee for our guests. To make up for that let down I have made her what I am calling S'more Bark! S'more bark is exactly like cracker toffee but I use graham crackers instead of saltines and of course add mini marshmallows on top.

S'more Bark

Preheat oven to 350 F
Line baking sheet with Tin foil
Place single layer of graham crackers on top of tinfoil 
In small pan melt 1 cup butter with 
1 cup brown sugar until smooth
Simmer till it starts to bubble.
Pour over crackers 
Place tray in oven for 5 minutes
Remove tray from oven sprinkle 2 cups of chocolate chips evenly over crackers and toffee place tray back in oven for 1 minute.
Use rubber spatula to spread melted chocolate.

Sprinkle mini marshmallows on top.

Place tray back in oven for 1 minute.

Sprinkle with crushed graham cracker crumb for a cute touch. (Optional)

Place cooled tray in fridge or freezer to cool faster or cool at room temp for several hours.

Once cooled break toffee in large pieces and store in air tight container. 

I have made this countless times using graham crackers or saltines. I have even made an Easter version using Peeps! It is always a hit. This is also pretty much the same recipe as my praline toffee except you do not add the chocolate chips on top. 

Congratulations Miranda and Rich! I hope you enjoy your treat!

What to Pack for a Ragnar Trail Relay?

Months ago when we decided to sign up for the Ragnar Trail Relay in West Virginia I started a list on my phone of what I wanted to pack. I have been known for being a list maker. Thankfully I am not alone in my list making when more than half of my team has an Engineering background it turns out we are all pretty listy. Our one team member even set up a google doc of what to pack so that we can all edit it. I know I'm a nerd but I love being prepared and I love being organized.

I started packing over the weekend when I knew I wouldn't be wearing most of my running clothes until race day. For the Relay I will be running 3 times so I made sure to pack three complete running outfits. I found a really helpful tip online to place each outfit in a gallon ziplock bag so I wont have to be searching for everything in the middle of the night or while someone else may be sleeping. The event will be all day and all night so I needed to make sure I packed a headlamp and extra batteries. I …

No Lunch Run for Me

Yesterday I was unable to run during my lunch break. My first reaction was self pity but then I quickly had to realize my little girl and her health are far more important. My daughter has been sick on and off for a few weeks and her breathing was very labored and I knew she had to go back to the doctor. Thankfully I was able to get her an appointment that day but it meant leaving work for a few hours and missing my lunch hour. When I start a training plan I tend to get a little obsessive about sticking to as much as I can. I don't know when I became such a rule follower. I have a good friend that I get to work with each day and he came to my rescue yesterday and put me in my place and out of my pity party. Thank you. I need to remember that things are going to change and everything can not always go as planned. When I have acceptance my life is far more serene. So at the end of the day yesterday I did not get to run or even do an alternate workout like I had planned because my hu…

Real Food Real Fuel

On January 1st of this year I started a resolution to eat more real foods. This idea was sparked by real food bloggers like Lisa Leake and Trina Holden. These woman have inspired me greatly to not only eat more real foods but to cook and bake with more real foods. To start out my pledge I cut out all white flour and white sugar from my diet for 45 days. I started to bake my own bread because I could not find actual whole grain bread for sale. Have you ever read the ingredients of your whole wheat bread? It isn't really what it's cracked up to be. So many things in my kitchen had to go: ketchup, salad dressing, vegetable oil, Hershey's Chocolate Syrup, Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Cool whip and the list goes on and on. I really had little to know knowledge about reading ingredients for years I was more concerned with calories and nutritional info which can be important info. but now to me the most important info is the ingredients. I am a huge chocolate fan so for the first …
