YEARS that is.
Anyone happen to have a clue as to what the heck I’m talking about?
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
Well, when I was getting all jazz handsy with my currentlies the other day, I left out one other little thing that’s flash dance worthy because last Friday was a day for celebration, and not just for those looking to score some amazing deals…
I’ll give you guys a minute to whip out your
fedora and fishnets party hats, noise makers, confetti, and balloon animals…please tell me there are balloon animals! 😉
But seriously, I want to take a minute say thank you to all my regular commenters, lurkers, blends, and…yep, you too, mom! The blog has gone through many phases as I’ve changed and grown over the years and it’s nice to know that some of you have stuck with me through it all…even withOUT the allure of pancakes.
To show my appreciation, especially since I kinda feel guilty about the lack of recipes around here lately, I have a little surprise…
Remember all those delicious bars I was gushing over a couple of weeks ago? Well, I’d like to give them to [one of] you…for FREE!
Yep, you heard me.
Like I said before, I love sharing my favorite things and well, since I’ve basically been living off these bars for the last few months, I figured this would be perfect!
The giveaway starts today and will end Wednesday, December, 10.
I’ll announce the winner on Friday, December 12.
OPEN TO EVERYONE EVERYWHERE!!!
To enter, just leave a comment telling me what keeps you coming back to KMB week after week and what bar you’re most excited to try!
Disclaimer: I have purchased these bars myself and will be paying for all the shipping requirements. The companies involved do not even know I’m doing this.
I always look forward to your recipes! They always give me good ideas when meal planning.

i love your sense of humor! and your love for kabocha and peanut butter!
I still have yet to venture into the land of Quest Bars!
Happy 4th blogversary!!
Even though you don’t share every single minute of your life with your readers (trust me, there are bloggers out there who do) you share so many moments that matter. You let us know that the things we are going through just make us human. Your smile is contagious , your photos are beautiful, and your humor makes me smile.
I read because of your humor and your honesty!
well I loved the pancakes lol. No I love how your personality comes out in every post!! Thanks for being you!
I keep coming back because you’re hilarious and awesome 😉
Love your personality! Quest bars all the way!!

Number two.. those Chia Bars are calling my name!
Congrats, girl!!!! I keep coming back because I love your writing style, and after 4 years, I feel like we’re old friends 🙂
I really like your sense of humor!!! I’m most excited to try the Quest bars…everyone seems to say they are delicious.
I keep reading your blog because your not afraid to be funny/sarcastic/REAL! You don’t try to sugar coat things and I love that you just say it how it is!
The bar I’m interested in trying is the Chia Bar!
Happy 4th anniversary with broccoli! 😉 I keep coming back for your humor … and the selfies. And the baked Quest bars (drool).
Your recipes keep me coming back. Specifically all those pancakes 😀
I keep coming back because your blog is light-hearted and funny. I’d love to try the cookies & cream quest bar.
You fun recipes, especially ones involving pancakes keeps me coming back!
i love KMB simply because your personality shines through it!
i admire your ability to work those long night shifts and still manage to get in yoga, walks, AND massages 🙂
oh, and i can’t forget to mention your love for wine (raise yo glass~)
i’m most excited to try the cookies n’ cream quest bar.. i have yet to find it at my whole foods! the smart bar also sounds great 😀
I like the way you organize and write your posts — the use of italics and bold, your alliterations and witty remarks, your silliness and honesty. I also enjoy the photography, which has great lighting and depicts delicious food, and there is always enough to balance out the text. Thanks for the entertainment! 🙂
I keep coming back to your blog because of your honesty and you always find the BEST condiments!! lol
Congratulations!!! What an accomplishment 🙂
I keep coming back because you always make me laugh! 😀 Congratulations on four amazing years!
Happy Blogiversary Babydoll.
I come back for your sass, your spunk, your sarcasm and so many more things which would be inappropriate to leave in a comment. Miss you.
I just found out about your blog and I’m excited to tag along 🙂
I LOVE the food posts!!
Happy Happy Birthday! Sorry for being a lurker for the past year…But I love reading your blogs because you are real! So many people only talk all sunshine and rainbows but I love that you admit that sometimes things aren’t picture perfect. Definitely a problem of social media stalking.
What keeps me coming back is your blunt and honest humor! You always crack me up. And the website name is what first drew me in. It’s different. I’m most interested to try any Quest bar, I’ve never had them!
Happy Blogiversary! I found your blog through the peanut flour mug cake you posted forever ago (still love it) … now I keep coming back because I love that you keep it real and have such a good attitude about food/body image 🙂 We need more role models like that!
Lots of congrats! Love your recipe, your life stories, and your honesty! But the most important, your passion!
Will keep coming back, forever!
Congratulations – love your sense of fun. I don’t want to put you to the expense of shipping to New Zealand so won’t enter – but thanks for thinking of us non US folks! Cheers
I love your blog…one of my favorites! You’re funny, easy to read, witty and just plain entertainingly smart.
Oh and I have yet to try a Quest bar so any flavor would be fabulous. Need those bars since I tend to be in my car a bit and rarely plan ahead…bars are perfect for purse-stashing.
happy blog-iversary! I’ve only been reading maybe a few months but have kept coming back because of how real you are! Great perspective, honest and funny! Also…. I too love my collection of bars! 🙂
I read your blog because you are so relate-able and funny. It is fun to see what other people eat too 🙂
Because you’re really funny! And you have good hair – but mostly because you’re funny! 🙂
Yay for four years! I am a long time reader of yours and really enjoy your unique sense of humor. Your selfies are also pretty stellar, not going to lie!
That is quite the stash of bars! I have seen those power crunch bars around the interwebs but haven’t tried them yet. Have a wonderful day!
Happy 4th blogiversary! I swear I feel like I was just wishing you happy 3 years – man how time flies. Anywho, you know I love your blog (and you!) and I hope there are more anniversaries to come! PS. Don’t count this as an entry – it would be a waste on me lol (dang allergies!).
I love your authenticity. How real you are. You don’t pretend everything is perfect when it’s not. I’m interested to see what a Chia bar tastes like.
Happy Blogiversary! I enjoy your real attitude towards life, food, your body, etc!
4 years!!! That’s so awesome! Congratulations 🙂 I was definitely one of those “lurkers” who came by your blog for the pancakes, and I kept coming back for your hilariousness. I have so enjoyed reading your blog these last few years. Keep up the great work!!!
I return because you’re one of (if not the) most authentic-to-yourself and honest bloggers out there, with a wonderful irreverence and wit <3
Happy 4 year blogiversary!!! I’m definitely in the lurker category and read each post! What keeps me here is your sassiness, ability to continuously make me laugh out loud and the fact the you truly keep it real! You rock, Heather!!! The bar I’m most interested in trying is the Chia bar. Keep doing what you do… Can’t wait to see what else you’re up to! 🙂
I have been a reader/lurker for at least 2? 3? years. I love your sense of humor and honesty about yourself and the content you put out. Happy 4 years!!!
Your posts on your journey with intuitive eating/body image have always been really inspiring, and the rest of the time you’re just really funny 🙂 Happy Blogiversary!
Happy, Happy 4th!!! Selfishly, I’m really glad you started a blog. I wouldn’t have met you otherwise! Mwah!
I love reading your Currently posts! They are the best!
you’re so damn real! it’s refreshing. 🙂
Because you are SO real and I appreciate it so much. You are insightful but still crack me up, and you write like you (probably?) speak. It’s so refreshing.
Congrats! I keep coming back because of your humour. You don’t take yourself too seriously and I love that!
Your blog is so full of color and life! I love reading your updates and how you promote a healthy body image.
I love your commentary on things!
I love how honest you are. You never try to sugar coat (literally) your life or what you’re going through. I love that you are not fake basically and it feels like I’m talking to a real person when I read your blog!!
A huge congratulations on 4 years of blogging! I’ve really enjoyed your sense of humor and how real you are. I always look to your blog for a creative new recipe along with a good laugh. I hope you plan to keep blogging 🙂 As a Quest bar fanatic, I have to say I’m most excited for those, but I haven’t tried Power Crunch yet! Thanks for the giveaway 🙂
That soyjoy bar….so mysterious, I don’t think I’ve seen one outside of your posts, so I would love to try that one! Happy 4 years, I love your pancakes, pictures and puns(;
I love your sense of humor and I’d love to try out those quest bars!
You are hilarious and honest, and I love how real you are.
What no way….4 years.
Well, I personally live for your broccoli bombs.
Okay, actually, your snaps. Okay, actually, well, YOU.
I’ve been reading for years! I love your humor and the currently posts.
Wow 4 years! I would love to try the quest bars 🙂
As someone who is recovering from an eating disorder, I find myself absolutely in love with your new-found relationship with food. Currently on the quest to discover motivation like your’s (and to be able to eat pizza again without fear!)
Can’t WAIT to try the power-crunch bars, as I can’t seem to find them in any grocery stores by me.
Aww happy four years! Wit, gingery goodness, pancakes, and dirty jokes of course….and peanut butter. xoxo
Happy blog birthday love! Love you!! And you know I come back just for you:)
I think you are absolutely hilarious and I enjoy your music taste as well as your food adventures. I still haven’t tried the QuestBar Cookies and Cream.
Authenticity:) it is a wonderful thing to see in the world we live in.
I’ve been lurking since I found you on instagram, I’ll say roughly 4 years ago. I stop by about weekly just to see whats up. What have you made, what are you listening to and most importantly, what have you bought! I never would have thought to go to TJ maxx for so many wonderful finds, but thanks to you it is my number one snack destination. I’ve tried things I’ve never even heard of because of you, so thanks! and Happy Birthday!
I keep coming back for your laid back, personal writing style. I feel like I’m sitting right across from you with a cup of coffee when I read a post.
I’d love to try a Quest bar, I’ve heard everyone rave about them, but can’t quite suck up the $2 per bar cost for a box of 12 knowing I might not like them
Heather, I honestly come back because your not a foodie snob and you always answer questions! Seriously. I cannot tell you how many bloggers only respond back to other bloggers (probably for networking purposes) , but that certainly doesn’t make the rest of us feel heard.
Anyway, I’m most excited to try the power crunch in the mint flavor. Fingers crossed I get to try it!!!
Happy 4 years, Heather! So happy for you. I love your sense of humor, your knack for making up words, and your honesty. I am dying to try Quest Bars ever since I read about them on your blog. Gimme Gimme cookies and cream. Nom nom.
You remind me a ton of myself! Curly hair, concert going, saying the eff word too much, crazy personess! (That is a compliment.) I love your blog!
I really want to try the cookies and cream Quest Bar!!
I keep coming back for your hilarious writing and amazing pancake recipes!
I love your sass! Any quest bar would be good to me !!
Your energy and humor are so fun and uplifting 😀
The banana nut Chia Bar sounds interesting!
Eep Happy 4 years lady! I think I missed my 4 year blogiversary this year..oops!
So so glad to have met you and to be able to stalk each other on the internets! <3 <3
Congratulations! I keep coming back because you are hilarious…totally makes my day 🙂
I LOVE your creative recipes! Seriously, who would have thought of a chocolate omelette? But now that I’ve tried it, I eat one every week! I’ll be trying your pan-cookies next. Yum!
Kiss My Broccoli has me coming back again and again because of the honesty and humor you bring to each and every post. And, I have been DYING to try the cookies ‘n cream Quest bar or White Chocolate Raspberry. mmmm, Quest bars are the best
I love broccoli too
There are so many blogs out there that promote unhealthy relationships with our body and food. It is so refreshing to read your blogs and see someone who practices balance in their life. You are a beautiful person!
I am excited to try that peppermint crunch bar!
Happy 4yr anniversary! I love your sense of humor, real talk and honesty and I had to stalk you on IG when you took a hiatus LOL! I am a bar fanatic!!!!!! ALL the bars!!!!!!!
I enjoy your humor! Your posts crack me up.
I love your honesty and transparency as a blogger. Thank you for inspiring me to be the same. I would love to try any of those bars! The only one I have tried is the nature valley granola bar. Congrats on 4 years!
I love your humor and personality! Congrats on four years! And ohhhh goodness do I love Quest Bars. A little too much. Oh well. But I’ve tried those, so I’d most like to try Power Crunch bars – never seen those before and they sound fabulous!
I keep coming back because you are real and hilarious! You are exactly who you are with nothing held back, and it is magnetic! I am from Nashville so I also love reading about local spots you find or awesome places in Clarksville 🙂
I like how real and down to earth you are and I share your affinity for bars lol
I love your humor! And the way you write and take photos is quite addicting 🙂
I love coming back for the recipes you post. And I would be most excited to try any of the Quest bars!
I love your humour and your recipes. I would be most excited to try the Power Crunch bars because I live in Canada and haven’t been able to find them here.
The reason I keep coming back? I <3 you. Simple as that and yes, it counts as an answer even for those grammar fiends – not like I was one – who demand complete sentences.
I'm glad you didn't stop blogging after all.
You are a nut in the most perfect kind of way! I have to keep coming back to see what will happen next!
