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 …

Healthy Body = Healthy Mind

I have been an a quest for Health & Wellness for many years now. I started thinking more about my health as I was getting closer to my 30s. I had been clean off drugs and alcohol for many years which was a huge plus, but I knew there was more that needed to be done. I quit smoking before my 28th birthday. That single action made me realize how much more I wanted to do for myself. Soon after I quit smoking, I started walking then I started running. Running was not always my passion it was very tough at first and I will admit that I did not love it right away. It took me some time to build a strong pace that I felt comfortable breathing with. I also did yoga on and off for many years and always loved that practice. When my girlfriend did her 200 Hour Yoga teacher training my practice got more intense and I was peaceful. That same friend and yoga mentor moved to Spain and my practice suffered I just did not keep up with it while she was away but I got more into running during that ti…

Super Bowl Sunday Treats

This year was the first year I ever went to a Super Bowl Party. Honestly the only reason I may have went was because I missed my friends and I also wanted to make yummy treats to eat! Naturally Super Bowl Sunday turned out to be on a weekend that I had Yoga Teacher Training so that meant I was not going to have as much time to prepare treats to bring. Thankfully I have the best Snack & Party Food Pinterest Board that ever existed. I found two recipes that I Pinned years ago. One Being Hot Corn Dip and the Other being a Mint Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball. Both were extremely easy to make and both tasted freaking amazing.

I did not have any Mint Extract but thankfully I have lots of Essential Oils on hand! I used two drops of Peppermint Oil and two drops of Spearmint Oil.

I'm hoping to take the time this weekend to get some baking done. I try to bake something at least once a week it really makes me happy and it certainly helps to have something tasty in the house. I just have neve…
