GIFT GUIDE: What’s on my Christmas Wish List

Happy December friends! I hope your month is off to a festive start with the holidays in full swing now. For Will and I, it’s our first married Christmas together. To stick with tradition, we got our Christmas tree over the weekend. This week, we are slowly finishing up our home decorating. Admittedly, I am not that person who is ahead of the game during the holidays. I haven’t done much gift shopping, yet. I’m also getting lots of questions about what I want for Christmas. So, after brainstorming some gift ideas over the weekend, I figured I would share my Christmas wish list with you all. Let’s dive in!

No-Bake Peanut Butter & Protein Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Last year, I decided to make Will no-bake cookies before this 24-hour running relay race he was doing (it’s called Ragnar if it sounds like your kind of thing). I figured the oats and peanut butter would be good fuel to keep his energy up. Little did I know they would be a major hit and devoured by everyone on the team. Will said these no-bake peanut butter cookies were just the ticket before a run when his energy was feeling low. He loves taking them for his motorcylce racing weekends too. Personally, I think these are most enjoyable when I am cuddled up on the couch wearing sweatpants after a long day. But however and wherever you eat them, I bet you’ll find them as tasty as I do!

  1. In a saucepan, mix butter, sugar and Muscle Milk over medium heat.

  3. After the two minutes is up, remove the saucepan from the heat and mix in peanut butter and vanilla extract.
  4. Next stir, in the oats one cup at a time. When all the oats are mixed in continue stirring as it cools.
  5. Once the mixture has thickened, scoop out spoonfuls on to wax paper and let them sit until they are hard.

This recipe makes about 30 cookies, but that can vary depending on how large you like them. I made this recipe after I was inspired with some similar ones online and decided to try it with Muscle Milk for an extra kick of protein. Of course, you can try the recipe with protein powder mixed into milk, if you’re looking for a similar way to get a protein boost.

Do you love no-bake peanut butter cookies? Have you had or made ones like these with protein powder or muscle milk? I would love to hear your cooking secrets in the comments section.

Cheers to the weekend!

Making Homemade Popcorn

When Will and I first starting dating, the amount of popcorn I ate was shocking to him. I average of a few bags of popcorn each week. He told me how terrible microwaveable popcorn can be, especially because of carcinogens in the bags.  He tried to convince me to make popcorn another way, but I was skeptical about just how easy making homemade popcorn could be. Buying seeds and cooking it on the stove top seemed time-consuming and messy.

Soon after, Will came over for a movie night and gave me a silicone popcorn making kit, so I could easily make healthy popcorn at home. I was skeptical at first, but I decided to give it a go. Since then, I have come up with a few easy recipes, or as I like to call them, “delicious concoctions.” 🙂

Ingredients:

Add one of these seasonings for a fun flavor:

  1. 2 tsp. lemon pepper
  2. 1 tsp. garlic powder and 1 tsp. onion powder
  3. 2 tsp. Lawry’s seasoned salt

Steps for making homemade popcorn:

  1. Add popcorn kernels to your silicone popcorn maker.
  2. Mix in buttery oil.
  3. Place the top on popcorn maker and heat it in microwave for about 3 minutes. Note: The exact time will depend on your microwave, but it is much harder to burn popcorn this way, when compared to microwaveable bags.
  4. Add seasonings, as you like.
  5. Place the top back on the popcorn maker and shake the bowl to mix ingredients well. Enjoy!

This recipe makes about 6 cups of popcorn, almost filling the popcorn maker. The optional seasoning combinations above are a few of my favorites to create a delicious and unique flavor. Of course, you can play around with the levels of seasoning to see just how much is right for you. My only tip is to try adding a bit at a time. Remember: you can always add more seasoning, but you can’t really take it away!

Do you enjoy making homemade popcorn?

Have you ever made popcorn this way or do you make it on the stove top? I would love to hear if you have any recommended seasonings as well. In the D.C. area, a common concoction at restaurants is Old Bay seasoned popcorn. For me, the lemon pepper is my favorite flavor. It sounds a little odd, but it is SO good. Let me know if you try it.

Cheers!

Sarah Camille

P.S. If you like lemon pepper as well, try my seasoned crackers recipe.
