So as you guys know I have started to adapt to "clean eating." Honestly so far I love it. I've had a couple days that have been difficult, but for the most part have found it's easy to change small things to make a BIG difference. I have more about this journey under the Our Journeys tab. But this change has brought me to one of my all time favorite breakfasts (this far.) I found it on SarahFit, it was different than what I had today because it was a wrap! (which I've ate and is equally delish!)However, a few days ago I got my coupons from Kroger in the mail and received a free pack of bacon!! I have yet to use this coupon (all though I definitely will) because I have bacon frozen and to be honest it does not go with clean eating at all! (which makes me super sad.) But then a friend of mine was talking about having bacon yesterday and well it's been on my mind!! So this morning I made a modified Spinach and Feta Egg white Omelet that she makes (just with out the wrap) and 3 pieces of bacon :) yummm. So follow this for her recipe and here is mine!I took a handful of spinach washed and pulled off the stems. Since they wilt down so small there's no need to tear. I use a small 6 inch skillet and I wilt the spinach with the lid on to make it faster. After the spinach is wilted I take a clove of minced garlic and mix it in. After they have cooked a few minutes together I took my 3 egg whites (beaten) and pour them on top. Cook with the lid on until almost finished and then throw on a few pieces of feta cheese. Feta has such a strong flavor that I find a small amount works perfect. Once it is finished I flip the omelet over let it cook on the other side to ensure egg whites are fully cooked and then I eat! One of my favorite breakfasts! I hope you enjoy.
Sorry the Picture isn't the best. Just a quick snap before I gobbled it up!
This morning I had to get up bright and early to make a cake for our Easter gathering. Last year I made a "Better Than Sex Cake", which for the sake of the holliday we called a "Heath Bar Cake" :) and everyone LOVED it requested I make it every year. But who wants to get in a rut, so this year I decided to do a dreamcicle cake.
Now I had seen a picture of a dreamcicle cake on Facebook looong ago and that is where I got the idea to make one for Easter. Finding the recipe proved to be next to impossible. I couldn't find the posting on facebook and Pinterest had the picture but no recipe attached!! (What good does that do me?) So I searched high and low and finally came across tobakeornottobake.com and her Orange Creamsicle Cake was close enough to what I wanted so I decided to give it a go.
Here's My Take:
First you need your ingredients.
Classic Yellow cake mix, Vanilla pudding (recipe says 3.5oz I used over half of a 6oz approx 5oz.) Jello (recipe calls for 2 3.5 I used over 1-1/2 6oz. boxes) 1 pkg cool whip thawed, milk, vanilla, and cream cheese.
`To begin prepare cake according to box directions. mean while boil water for Jello. I had to double my Water and Jello to 1 cup boiling water and 6 oz Jello. Dissolve Jello, when The cake comes out poke holes into the cake, I used a straw. Once cake is ready add 1 Cup cold water to Jello and stir. 1 box made two 8x8 cakes and I poured the Jello over both cakes evenly. Cover the cake and place in the refridgerator for atleast an hour - 2 hours.

While that is chillin', I started making the icing. You take your cream cheese (soften it, I put mine in the microwave uncovered for 30 seconds) Take a mixer and mix until smooth Then add another 3.5oz. of Orange Jello and 3.5oz. Vanilla Pudding. I mixed these together a little bit then I added the milk and vanilla and mixed until smooth again. Once smooth, fold in your whip cream and ice your cake!
As you can tell Icing is NOT my specialty. Sure was tastey though!!! :)
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!
