Sweet Butter Kitchen - Very Belated Birthday - Psychic Eye

"The more you praise your life the more there is to celebrate" Oprah Winfrey

I am notorious for celebrating my birthday extremely late or not at all (It's actually in August). I have serious anxiety attacks at just the thought of planning a gathering where there are more than two people. That would mean I would have to worry about everyone being happy, a location, enough food, if people would be on time, etc. I know, it's my birthday so someone else should plan it, but then I would get anxiety wondering what they were planning, if they had enough of everything, and all that good stuff (I have been told that I am the true definition of a Virgo).

PB2 Real Peanut Butter with 85% Less Fat!

I love peanut butter and would eat just one spoonful as a snack sometimes. I would eat more, but just in one serving of peanut butter lurks 190 calories, many from fat! 

I cannot believe I didn't find out about PB2 earlier. PB2 is peanut butter made with peanuts that are slow roasted, then pressed to remove the fat. There's no added sugar or artificial flavors. The best thing is that it is only 45 calories per serving, compared to regular peanut butter, which is typically 190 calories per serving. 

It comes in a powder form and all you have to 

do is add water until you reach the desired consistency. I have friends that add it to their shakes. This week I am going to attempt to have more protein shakes. I have to watch my calories a little until I am able to get motivated to get a good workout. I have been slacking a little and only doing partial workout....

Cheesecake Factory Copycat Recipe

Today I swore I was going to get myself back on the P90X wagon. I was only on the wagon for approximately 30 minutes prior to agreeing to meet a girlfriend out for dinner at the Cheesecake Factory (Grove LA location - Also great for shopping!). 

I promised myself I would finish the rest of the DVD after I got home. Well, I am home now and that P90X legs DVD is not going to happen tonight. I am hopefully going to get up a bit earlier to finish it, also hoping that I add in an hour of cardio later in the day.  I am trying to get the motivation to get back onto a routine. Especially after the cupcake making (and eating) weekend I just had. I will post the recipes to those cupcakes soon! In the meantime, you've gotta make this copy cat recipe for Cheesecake Factory potstickers.

Best Friend's Banana Bread

"There's no problem that friends cannot confront, combat, plot against, ignore, make fun of drown in chocolate sauce, or run over in a car." - Unknown 

... Or in this case devour banana bread! I don’t need any comforting at the moment, but it’s nice to know that I have a bunch of girlfriends that I can turn to if I would ever need a shoulder to cry on.

This recipe is from one of my best friend's, Mary D. I have two special Marys in my life... one all the way in Oklahoma and the other just a bit closer, in Orange County… I wish she lived next door!

Spicy Skinny Tuna Melt 260 Calories!

I ate a ton this weekend; therefore, it's time to get back on track. The reason I am able to stay thinner despite the many things I enjoy indulging in is because I am able to eat in moderation and make better food choices. This morning I had to jump around the living room while frantically pulling up my skinny jeans just to get them over my tush... that's when I realized that I have to scale back on the calories. That doesn't mean eat things you don't like. All you have to do is find ways to scale back on calories. I made a spicy skinny tuna melt that was only 260 calories!

Egg, Bacon, and Spinach Pizza

"A True friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked" Bernard Meltzer 

All of my favorite things on a pizza, egg, bacon, and cheese! Oh, tomato sauce too! This is such an easy recipe using store bought pizza crust and things you may already have. The greatest thing about making a pizza at home is that it is simple and you cannot really mess it up.
