The Strawberry Click Frapp

 Ohhh procrastination! How do I love thee? This shake was supposed to go up around Valentine’s Day. I even had a really cute name for it (“Nik’s Love Potion #10”). Alas, it was not meant to be. But the good news is this. I’m turning a corner on this bug I have and needed a protein boost so I …

BF Review (and “Recipe”): Fiber One English Muffins

 I’m sort of under the weather this week, so rather than try to sneeze my way through a bunch of longer recipes, I thought I’d give myself a break and catch up on the gazillion and two products I’ve been meaning to tell folks about. Next up…Fiber One English muffins! Now, up until now I’d done Thomases 100-cal English …

BF Review: Everlast Hyperplex Protein (Chocolate)

 First, I should say that I don’t do the most scientific product reviews in the world. Sure, I try to commit to trying stuff plain and paying attention to how it his my palet, but on the overall, I kinda wing it. Well today I REALLY winged it and now I sort of regret that. Why? Well because I …

Meatless Fridays: Thai Tuna Sliders

 I can’t tell you how many post-ops have looked me straight in the eye and told me it was impossible for them to have a good lunch at work. Now for some of you this is true. But many I spoke to worked in offices with all the necessary components to have a good lunch with just a little …

Four Cheese Mashed Cauliflower

(Programming Note: If you like this, or any other BF recipe, an easy way to let me know – so I can keep more recipes like it coming – is by clicking one of the “reaction” boxes at the end of the post!) You ever clean out your refrigerator and find small blocks of random cheese (that’s still good) that …

Mexican Egg Casserole

 I just want to clear up one thing first. I have no idea if there is really such a thing as Mexican Egg Casserole. That’s just the best name I could come up with for what this is. It is not a quiche. Not even a crustless one. Quiche implies a lightness this thing does not possess. No…this boy …

Nik’s Salty Caramel Dessert

This is a true story of how one little sugar-free caramel pudding cup became a very big deal in my life. I’ll try to be brief. Basically, I was in Wal-Mart and I saw some sugar-free caramel pudding cups. Having never seen them before, I was excited. Brought them home, tasted then and…ennnhhh. They were o.k. But they needed some …

Red Beans & Rice (a la Nik)

 What a perfect lazy day dinner this makes! I made this last night for the divas and I as we camped on the sofas and watched a marathon of 48 Hours Mystery (is it strange that my children like television news magazine programs?). Red Beans & Rice (a la Nik) Ingredients 3 cups of cooked kidney beans (I made my …

Fast Food Swap: Nik’s Fruity “Maple” Oatmeal

 Oh McDonald’s. Your food is so appealing to the eye…but yet so scary when you find out the facts about it! Have you ever read Fast Food Nation? If you absolutely love McDonald’s…don’t read that book. It will freak you out and you’ll never want to eat there again. (Now I’ve gone and made you curious, haven’t I?) At …

Triple Chocolate Protein Shake

So this protein shake was born a few years ago, around St. Patrick’s Day. And you might find this hard to believe…but I…am not Irish. Still I’m inspired by St. Patrick’s Day. National/Cultural pride is a great thing and it should be celebrated. Although, today’s shake isn’t really about that. It’s triple chocolate. And much as I am proud of my …
