No-bake Protein Key Lime Pie

 OMG. Have you ever had the forces of nature conspiring against you? No? Well don’t ever. It’s no fun. There are many, many reasons I haven’t posted since last Friday but none are thrilling enough to detail here so I’ll just say two things. I’m sorry! And…I missed you guys!

BF Review: Everlast HyperPlex Vanilla Protein

 …and then there was one. Now you’d think I’d learned my lesson last week about non-scientific product reviews. After all, I have now come out of my pocket and bought yet ANOTHER protein powder (I am now at critical mass, by the way) so I can figure out where the brownie batter phenomenon comes from after using the Everlast HypePlex Chocolate. But …

BF Reader Request: Creamed Chipped Beef (on Toast)

 The other day someone on the Pouch Party Facebook page requested a creamed chipped beef recipe. I should first say I don’t find much wrong with creamed chipped beef in the first place.Yes, it can be high in fat and a little bit carby but it’s certainly not the worst choice one can make and if you have it …

Crab & Asiago Egg Casserole

 Word to the wise, peeps. Take a look at what’s going on in the veggie bin of your fridge.

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 …

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 …

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 …
