Coconut Cravings & a Kick in the Mouth

Hey guys!

So it’s good to know I’m not the only Twilight fan out there!

I hope you all had a great weekend! And I hope you’re all done with your Turkey Day shopping…all the grocery stores around here are caaaaa-razy! Hard to believe that Thanksgiving is only a few more days away?

What dish are you looking forward to most?

So today was a rainy, gloomy, couch-bumming kind of Sunday.

This was my view from the back patio:

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas winter! :-/

Even if it wasn’t Pancake Sunday, it would definitely still be a lazy pancake eating sort of morning.

With absolutely no intention of changing out of my pj’s until having to go to work tonight, I decided to let Pinterest tell me what to make.

Ahh, the trusty pancake board! 🙂

I had a mad craving for some fluffy coconut pancakes, so I was super excited about trying Gina’s Coconut Paleo Pancakes only a quick look through the fridge threw that idea right out the window…

I had one egg!

So I decided to whip up a batch of Adrianna’s Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pancakes instead…only halfway through following the recipe to a tee, my coconut craving took over!

Pumpkin COCONUT pancakes!

I added 1/4 cup coconut flour to the batter, omitted the chocolate chips, and added enough milk to thin the batter.

They were PERFECT!!

And you know what the best part is?

The recipe was HUGE and now I have LEFTOVERS!!

Woo hoo!

After breakfast, I spent the rest of the day making a good sized dent in my couch while giggling over You Tube videos, amping up my iTunes library (a small feat I may add since it’s been about 3 years since my last music download), and a little blog reading.

Then it came time for lunch!

As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemakers Program, I was sent a coupon for a free Sabra product of my choice so I took it as an opportunity to snatch up a flavor I’ve been eyeing for months.

I typically buy the GINORMOUS containers of Sabra from Sam’s Club, but unfortunately, they only have original, spinach & artichoke, and roasted red pepper.

It was time for a little switch up!

So what’s the verdict?

Break out the friggin’ fire extinguisher!


I would like to think that I have developed a good taste for spicy things over the last year or so, but holy hot peppers!

Delicious flavor, but I will definitely be mixing this with some more chickpeas to tone it down a bit! 😉

What is your favorite hummus flavor?

Are you a fan of spicy food?
