Summer on a Spoon!

–posted by Jen Most everyone knows, especially those who read the “What Are You Eating Today” thread on the RNY board on OH, that I have cottage cheese and pineapple for breakfast practically every day.  Even at two years out, my pouch doesn’t handle heavy food too well early in the morning, especially in the heat of summer, so I usually …

BF Top 5: Protein bars!

There was a time, not so long ago, that I was very opposed to protein bars. Because I only tended to see protein bars at 7-Eleven and Wal-Mart, I had the idea that they were all carb heavy and no better for you than a candy bar. I’m here to admit—before you, the world-wide web and God—that I was wrong. …

Banana Cream Pie Ramekin

~~ by Jen So we asked “how do our Pouchers wanna go bananas?” and you answered, mostly “Banana Cream Pie!”  I was secretly hoping for Banana Pudding, because my StepMom makes THE BEST banana pudding you ever put in your mouth, and I come from a long line of great Southern cooks.  So, since this is my recipe, I decided to …

Veggie Frittata

~~posted by Jen Lots of times I steam fresh or frozen veggies for a side dish, and inevitably when I clean out the fridge, there is always a sad little container of leftover vegetables.  Today was my weekly fridge cleaning day, and I found just such a container of mixed vegetables (peas, corn, carrots, & green beans), maybe a cup …

Soooo…remember way back when we did the poll on frozen pies? And I told you my divas were mad at all of you because they wanted the cookies and cream one? Well the other day I noticed my puppy was missing. On the kitchen counter was my batter bowl and under it was a note that said, “Make our pie …

Homemade Citrus Green Tea

~~by Nikki Anyone who knows me knows several things: first, that I am a shameless “know-it-all,” second, that I’d give you the shirt off my back if I thought you needed it. Lastly, those who TRULY know me…know that shirt didn’t cost much cuz I am CHEAP! Well I wouldn’t say cheap…frugal. That’s a better word. Either way I try …

Pouch Party(TM) seems to have been DISCOVERED (hence the fact that I have been ordered…erm, instructed to use the damn trademark symbol whenever referencing it). I’ll post a rundown of booked parties next week so that folks don’t miss out on the fun and, as always, if you want Pouch Party(TM) …

Orange Creamsicle Protein Shake

~~by Nikki So since it seems we’ve been on a tour of “Nik’s favorite summer flavors (as told through protein shakes)” I figured I’d continue the trend here. This was one of the first non-standard protein shakes I learned how to make and it still serves me well when I have a taste for it. Now I know what some …

BF Top 5: Beat the Heat with Icy Treats!

~~by Nikki I am a poet and I didn’t even know it! Ok, so I live in Baltimore. Jen is in New Jersey. Both our states are embroiled (never before has that been the MOST appropriate adjective) in a heat wave! It was 105 degrees in Baltimore yesterday, beating the record of 101 set in 1999. At 11 p.m. it …
