Peanut butter is SUCH an obsession of mine. It makes everything better! Even yogurt, which is a delightfully worthy breakfast companion in itself – but add to it some yummy natural peanut butter and and raw organic honey and shredded unsweetened coconut and crunchy cacao nibs and it’s an I’ll-never-leave-you! breakfast companion. The fact that this bad-boy is totally processed-sugar-free just sweetens the pot . . . er, I mean Mason Jar.
Fall! Fall is here! It still doesn’t quite feel like it weather-wise here in metro Detroit; we’ve enjoyed a ton of warm, absolutely gorgeous days over the past three weeks. But I am certainly not complaining! Here’s to keeping up this gorgeous-weather streak until my birthday, a little over a week from today!
While it doesn’t entirely feel like fall here yet, I know it is because of the gorgeous, diffused quality of the sunlight that only displays its beauty at this time of year. And because advertisements for pumpkin spice lattes are everywhere. And with the arrival of the ubiquitous pumpkin spice latte comes the arrival of fall food.
My mom was the inspiration behind this pasta bake (hi, Mom!). She was telling me the other day about this quick lasagna she made using premade spinach ravioli, and I thought, hmmm, I can do a whole-eating upgrade on that!
