Raspberry Coconut Protein Bars

Did you know you can make protein bars at home for a fraction of the cost of store bought ones? These Raspberry Coconut Protein Bars are healthy and a fun energy snack.

It’s Food ‘n Flix time again! In this monthly group a host picks a movie of their choice that pertains to food. Everyone watches the movie and then makes a recipe which the film inspired. It can be any recipe you want. This month’s pick is hosted by Amy of Amy’s Cooking Adventures, who suggested a fun chick flick, Failure to Launch, for which I made Raspberry Coconut Protein Bars !

Cookbooks Galore: my most recent recipe inspirations

I have been building a mountain of new cookbooks lately. So many recipes so little time. And I will need new shelves too for storage. Ah the joy of turning the pages and salivating at every new picture of fun recipes. I thought I would share with you all the latest titles newly added to my collection.

The No Cook No Bake Cookbook: Tofu Carpese Stacks and Fig Chia Jam

Its a scorching hot and humid summer heatwave, the 7th day in a row, and you just spent your day traveling to and from work in an hot steamy airless packed subway and bus.  There is a respite for a few hours at work, thankfully there is AC there. When you do get home you strip and plop yourself on the couch with your fan on High aimed right at you because you only have AC in the bedroom. After 30 minutes of ‘chillin’ a horrible thought comes to mind: there is NO WAY I am cooking dinner but what am I going to eat? Panic stricken, you remember to reach for the new practical book you just got: The No Cook No Bake Cookbook!

6th Blogiversary: Raw Pesto Spaghetti

Quite another milestone! June 14th was my 6th Blogiversary. Every year I am so grateful and surprised to see how my passion for food and desire to share my discoveries only gets stronger and stronger. I am so proud to be part of this great community of friends and food lovers. And I enjoy discovering what others are concocting in their kitchen just as much…it is an endless source of inspiration. You are all amazing. And thank you for every visit to my blog and all the amazing comments you leave.

This year the celebration will be low key. No elaborate dish, no giveaway, no major fanfare.  I have been fighting a bronchitis (again) for the past 2 weeks so I have not spent a lot of time in the kitchen. But what I would like to share with you is something possibly new to you. After all I think that is what I do best: try to get people to step outside of their safe food box.
