One for You, One for Me

Happy Monday everyone!!! Hope it’s been a great day, the weather is nice and toasty here again. Perfect beach weather although I’ve been stuck indoors all day 😦 This change of time has got me all weird lol I think it’s 6am when it’s already like 9. At least the days stay brighter longer so I’m not driving in the dark at 6pm.

Yesterday was a pretty relaxing Sunday with the boyfriend. We stayed in and he studied. I did some flashcards and napped since I lost an hour of sleep 🙂

I’ve never been a cook, I didn’t know how to boil an egg till recently. My meals consisted of cereal for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch, and my dad would make me chicken for dinner. Cooking for myself is great, making the things that I enjoy make me feel better and be healthier.

I take pride in my oats lol I think I do a bowl of oatmeal justice. I’m not Kath by any means but I know what tastes good.

This was for me:

Oatiesss 🙂

My fabulous pumpkin pie oats covered with graham crackers, peanuts, chocolate granola, and cinnamon raisin pb found Bear Naked Chocolate Granola at Publix and was destined to buy it. Awesome oatmeal topper 😀

After breakfast I went to my boyfriends house and decided to make him some oatmeal too!

Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal topped with chocolate granola, peanuts, hazelnuts, and almond butter. I’ve made him oatmeal a few times which he loved but apparently this one was his favorite 😉 He’s lucky I’m good with oats.

No day at my boyfriend’s place could be complete without some homemade froyo. I’m a bit obsessed but I don’t have an ice cream machine at home so I kinda take advantage 🙂

We decided on making chocolate chip vanilla froyo!

One for him:

And one for me:

I know, mine looks ugly because we ran out of chocolate syrup 😦 After I saw his nutty toppings I got a little jealous and added some to mine 🙂 It was delicious!!

Great day with amazing eats 🙂

A kiss for me and one for you 🙂

  • Do you guys own an ice cream maker? What’s your favorite recipe to make?

    Mmmmm all those eats look DELICIOUS! I love your oat concoctions…gotta get me some of that granola!
    And the fro-yo? To die for as always. I don’t own an ice cream maker, but I would LOVE to make something crazy like hazelnut or pumpkin…ohhh the possibilities 😀

    • 2. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:01 pm

      Omg hazelnut sounds delicious! 😀

  • 3. Cara @ ChicMeetsHealthy  |  03/14/2011 at 3:16 pm

    Awww how cute! I love those type of pictures! I would try a peanut butter fro yo! you could add choc chips to the top!

  • 4. Ellie  |  03/14/2011 at 3:33 pm

    The oats look good, they can never be not yummy 😛 I don’t have an icecream maker, but my fave ice creams are black cherry, choc mint, and pistachio 🙂 have a great day Jen~

  • 5. Jess  |  03/14/2011 at 3:46 pm

    I do have an ice cream maker and I love it- strawberry is my fav!

  • 6. chrysta  |  03/14/2011 at 3:54 pm

    awesome!! I have an ice cream maker but havent busted it out yet…I cant wait to though. Im a fro Yo addict. Have a great day!

  • 7. TheNoviceNosher  |  03/14/2011 at 4:39 pm

    An ice cream maker is one of those things I would LOVE to have but is not so high on the “Things I Want to Cook With” list. A dutch oven is at the top. Then maybe ice cream maker. But I would so love to make my own, I could have healthier, less-guilt ice cream rather than the store-bought kind!

  • 8. movesnmunchies  |  03/14/2011 at 5:42 pm

    i ddont have an ice cream maker! then again.. i cant eat ice cream so it wouldnt really be useful haah!! LOVE YOUR OATs galore!

  • 9. Maryann (The Balanced Bean)  |  03/14/2011 at 6:51 pm

    Why dont I have an ice cream maker?! I could make froyo like it was my job! How do you do it? Maybe ill look for a good deal on an ice cream maker and then come back to you for the recipe 🙂 The oats look so delish!

  • 10. Be fit and be fabulous  |  03/14/2011 at 7:02 pm

    You have the prettiest oats I’ve seen. They looks SO good!

    • 11. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:02 pm

      aw thank you 🙂

  • 12. The Teenage Taste  |  03/14/2011 at 7:11 pm

    Sadly, I don’t own an ice cream maker, but I really, really, really want one! 😛 Your ice cream sundae creations are making me drool!

    • 13. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:03 pm

      They are so good! 😀

  • 14. Christina @ Food.Fun.Fabulous.  |  03/14/2011 at 7:21 pm

    Making your own froyo sounds like so much fun! I of course don’t have an ice cream maker though

  • 15. Nicole @ Making Good Choices  |  03/14/2011 at 7:34 pm

    I need to get an ice cream maker, but I have to wait till we move. I’ve never had homemade ice cream or froyo before, it looks delicious!

  • 16. Hollie @ Lolzthatswim(andRun)  |  03/14/2011 at 8:01 pm

    I need an ice cream maker because I seriously eat so much. It would probably save me so much money in the long run for real.

  • 17. Laury @thefitnessdish  |  03/14/2011 at 8:28 pm

    Those oats look amazing. Oatless oats? And the chocolate bear naked sounds great, I’ll have to pick that up!

    I don’t own an ice cream maker, but I have a vitamix that makes ice cream! Vanilla Bean and Peanut Butter (dairy free) is my fav!

    • 18. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:03 pm

      I want a vitamix so bad lol

  • 19. Sophia @ Raven Waves  |  03/14/2011 at 9:26 pm

    You oat bowls always look so good! I want to try Chocolate Granola! That sounds amazing. I wish I had an ice cream maker, but if I did, I think I’d probably make too much ice cream! 🙂

    • 20. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:03 pm

      The granola is really yummy but pretty high in calories 😦

  • 21. Jenn @ Peas & Crayons  |  03/14/2011 at 9:47 pm

    awwww I miss publix sooo much!! Their macaroni salad, potato salads, and carrot cake were my FAVORITE!!!!!!

  • 22. leashieloo  |  03/14/2011 at 9:53 pm

    I have an ice cream maker, but I haven’t made anything for years! I would love to make froyo though, yours looks fab.

  • 23. whatkateiscooking  |  03/14/2011 at 10:06 pm

    I have an ice cream maker but I’ve never used it! My sister has made some ice cream a few times, and my parents used to use it all the time when we were kids. I need to give it a workout this summer!

    • 24. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:04 pm

      Girl take it out!! 🙂

  • 25. This Italian Family  |  03/14/2011 at 10:16 pm

    Such a cute shot there at the end! 🙂

  • 26. Mary @ Bites and Bliss  |  03/14/2011 at 10:27 pm

    Very cute picture 🙂 And unfortunately I don’t have an ice cream maker!! I’ve wanted one for years though!

    • 27. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:05 pm

      I’m about to steal my boyfriend’s haha

  • 28. cupcake dynamite  |  03/14/2011 at 10:30 pm

    that looks SOOOO amazing! I would never think of froyo in an ice cream maker – what a concept! 😉 adorable photo of you two, too!


    • 29. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:05 pm

      Just use Fage and it’s amazing 🙂

  • 30. Christina  |  03/14/2011 at 10:40 pm

    Awww, what a cute pic! I have an ice cream maker, I love to make my own ice cream. My favorite is orange sherbet…Mmmm…

  • 31. Gina  |  03/14/2011 at 11:47 pm

    An ice cream maker would be so fun! The closest thing I make to homemade ice cream is banana soft serve.

    • 32. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:06 pm

      I made it in my bullet and i thought my blender died 😦

  • 33. Angie @ The Fitness Apple  |  03/14/2011 at 11:58 pm

    CHOCOLATE Chip vanilla froyo and a cute man?What can be better 🙂

    • 34. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:06 pm

      Haha it was a good day 😀

  • 35. Justeen @ Blissful Baking  |  03/15/2011 at 1:10 am

    I REALLY wish I had an ice cream maker! I’ve made green tea ice cream (DELISH!) at home without one, but I bet it’d be so much easier with it!

    • 36. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:07 pm

      I’ve never made anything green tea lol should be an interesting flavor

  • 37. Alyssa  |  03/15/2011 at 11:21 am

    I looove BearNaked granola! and holy wow, I would LOVE my own little froyo maker!

    • 38. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:07 pm

      It was my first time trying the granola. It’s really good 🙂

  • 39. Tara  |  03/15/2011 at 12:00 pm

    That pic is too cute! Your oats would be enough to get me out of bed in the morning. They are always so pretty!
    I have an ancient ice cream maker that doesn’t really work. Do you use one to make the froyo? Please share your recipe if you do!!

    • 40. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:09 pm

      Aww thank you! And yes I used an ice cream maker.
      I used a tube of Fage (17 0unces )
      6 T of evaporated Milk
      1 cup of splenda baking sugar
      One vanilla bean
      and about 1/8 cup of water

      Amazinggggg 😀
      You could use 1/2 cup of FF milk too instead of the evaporated milk

  • 41. IHeartVegetables  |  03/15/2011 at 12:14 pm

    You guys are so cute! I don’t have an ice cream maker but I have a vitamix and I can pretty much make ice cream in that! I like to freeze almond milk and then blend it up with cocoa powder, stevia, peanut flour and a dash of salt. It’s so chcolatey and delicious!

    • 42. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:09 pm

      I enjoy all those with a vitamix 😦

  • 43. Shanna, like Banana  |  03/15/2011 at 12:56 pm

    No ice cream maker for me, but I do love granola on my oats..nice crunch!

  • 44. Katie  |  03/15/2011 at 1:32 pm

  • 46. cupcake dynamite  |  03/15/2011 at 2:22 pm

    If I had a home made fro yo machine I’d never leave my house!

      Only 100 calories for the whole little pack. I ate half 🙂

    Love the oats! They look so good!

    And…I don’t own an ice cream maker. I’m not really big on ice cream. I could never have it again and be fine with it. I know, I know…please promise you’ll still read my blog! Haha! 😉

    • 54. Jenny  |  03/15/2011 at 6:13 pm

      Bwahaha no worries I’ll always be a reader! 🙂

  • 58. Lauren  |  03/16/2011 at 1:44 am

    I WISH I had an ice cream maker. That sounds dangerous though.

    • 59. Jenny  |  03/16/2011 at 10:51 am

  • 60. megan @ the oatmeal diaries  |  03/16/2011 at 2:40 am

    • 61. Jenny  |  03/16/2011 at 10:52 am

      So many possibilities! 😀

  • 62. Hannah (BitterSweet)  |  03/16/2011 at 2:33 pm

    Crumbled graham crackers on top of oatmeal sounds wonderful- Now that’s one I haven’t tried yet!

  • 63. katshealthcorner  |  03/16/2011 at 4:27 pm
