Kitchen Kraziness

Yup, self-affirmations still going strong!! :D Thanks Caitlin!

Your comments last night were incredible and inspiring to read! What a pick me up!

Did anyone else get a little teary eyed when watching the video? I admit I did!

I can’t wait until I leave the house today. I am going to leave a few messages around town. *evil cackle*


As I mentioned in yesterday afternoon’s post, I am selling my Glo Bakery goodies in a market this Saturday!! So what I thought was going to be a catch up week has turned into another crazy baking week! :D

Yesterday I spent the entire day baking and today and tomorrow I will be doing the same!

I made Part 1 of my Gl’oreos:


I can’t get over how much the cookie tastes like the chocolate cookie from actual Oreos! It is a dead ringer!


Part 2 will be the filling (healthified) of course!

Then I made 200 of my On The Glo Bars. Although these OTG bars had a twist! A crispy twist!!

After I pulled out all the ingredients and got everything ready, I realized that I was almost out of oats!!! What’s a gal to do?

I decided to sub some of the oats with cereal- rice crisp cereal!!

I used 1 cup oats and 1 cup of rice crisp cereal instead of 1.5 cups of oats.

The result was nothing short of sheer perfection:


A Light and airy delight.


The rice crisp cereal made these bars VERY light. They aren’t dense like the other ones. I would prefer these lighter bars for small snacks and the other ones when I am looking for more substance and energy!


In other batches, I added chocolate chips!!

Which, to my delight, melted when I added the brown rice syrup mixture!!

I LOVE the chocolate ones!!!


My mother in law is OBSESSED with these new bars!! She just can’t get enough of them! :D

She has a HUGE tab adding up I tell you…bahaha.

Another day, another Amazing Grass Green Monster:


In today’s mix:

These ingredients made 1.5 of these cups! So good!

I  love that they don’t put a bunch of crap in the powders. It is all natural, organic, and vegan. BOO-YAH.

GOOD NEWS to my fellow Canadians! Amazing Grass products will be available in Canadian WHOLE FOODS stores this August 2009!

Here is what I have decided to bake for the market Saturday:

  2. On The Glo Bars (~200)
  3. Skinni-mini Glo buns
  4. Glo’nuts
  5. Gl’oreos
  6. Mini muffins (Time pending)

I also need to:

  • Prepare signage
  • Business cards
  • magnets
  • Ingredient list
  • Nutritional info

2 days left!!! Never a dull moment around this household…

See you this afternoon for:

  • WHO in my circle of family and friends is starting up a BLOG! You won’t believe who it is and what the blog is going to be about! Any guesses?
  • Am I chopping my hair off?? Find out…

Hi Angela! I just wanted to let you know how very happy I am that I stumbled upon your blog a few weeks ago. You are such an inspiration…and your food looks AMAZING!

I also wanted to say that I am completely in love with Green Monsters and since I started drinking them, I’ve infected a huge number of family members with the green smoothie bug! We actually had a “smoothie party” at my mom’s house a few days ago where my sis-in-law and myself made up several varieties of green goodness for various family members to taste test. They all loved them!! :)

Those bars look so amazingly good.

How short will you go?

Angela, I ordered a couple of Amazing Grass sample packs. Can’t wait to try it!

Quick question: do you use canned pumpkin when you put it in your green monsters? THANKS!!!
