OMG! Green Smoothie

I recently read an article listing the top 10 greens that you should be eating. Well, I'm not a rabbit so I thought I'd try to find smoothie recipes to include these ingredients. Besides, one of them, chard, was listed as one to help fight diabetes.


So what does a girl do when she needs a recipe? She does a search on Pinterest! There I found a recipe and I happened to have all the ingredients (shocker!). Here is the original recipe link for the Peanut Butter and Jelly Green Smoothie.

And here are is my version:

1 container of Yoplait Light in vanilla
1 TBSP of chia seeds
1/2 cup of frozen blueberries
1/2 cup of frozen bananas
1 TBSP of Peanut Butter
Handful of spinach
1/2 cup of skim milk

Blend and enjoy!

Sorry, I'll work on the pictures but I just couldn't stop drinking this. It honestly tastes like a PB&J!

Kissing Ted Callahan Review

I was offered an advanced copy for a fair review.

Amy Spalding, you had me at Kissing!

Riley and Reid walk in on their band mates making out, which throws their friendship into a weird place. R & R decide they can have love and sex with each other’s help, so they create a manifesto and share information with each other about dating the opposite sex. What could possibly go wrong?!?

Ms. Spalding’s writing, as per usual, is full of snark which I’m a huge fan. And she does a great job of throwing R & R into awkward situations that make you smile. She effortlessly shows us the relationship between Riley and Reid as they maneuver through dating life.

We only see Reid’s POV via the manifesto while we watch Riley stumble through gaining her crushes attention. All seems innocent until she finds herself not only Kissing Ted Callahan but also two other guys!

Music lovers will thoroughly enjoy this one sitting read while those of us not so in-tune will enjoy the relationships and funny situations. As with all of Ms. Spalding’s books, our characters find their HEA or at least what constitutes as one for teens!

I couldn’t put this book down and only forced myself to stop reading when my kids demanded my attention (how dare they!).

I highly recommend Kissing Ted Callahan and look forward to Ms. Spalding’s 2016 release.
