Sweets...oh how I miss you!

We are well past the half-way point of our Lenten season, which means sweets are on the horizon for our household.

This unseasonably warm weather makes us both want to visit the local ice cream shop. But more so, I just want one of my favorite little Reese's peanut butter eggs. I love all things peanut butter and chocolate and Reese's definitely has perfected the peanut butter:chocolate ratio in their egg, pumpkin and tree-shaped versions of the all mightly cup! Of course, I will snag some in the grocery cart this week as they sell out nearly every year.

While reading one of my favorite blogs - The Domestic Wannabe - Ashley made a perfectly-Lorryn-treat - Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Bread. Hello? I think this may be on our meal plan for Easter Sunday! It sounds and looks heavenly.

Sweets have been difficult, but a little more tolerable since my sweetie gave it all up with me! I am a little excited for April 8th to arrive.

{Food For Thought} 

According to the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, subjects who ate candy or chocolate cake were found tro be more agreeable and helpful after snacking than those who munched on a salty cracker. The recent study suggests that people with a sweet tooth have nicer dispositions.

As read in the April issue of All You, {one of my favorite, quick-read, recipe-providing, coupon-oriented magazines}.

I believe I have a nice disposition and of course I love sweets! I can think of some "salty-snack-lovers" and their less-than warm personalities. Come to think of boss loves to snack on Saltine crackers...hmmm.

  1. I had to come back and find this post after trying something new and KNOWING that you'll LOVE it ... Quaker Chewy "Dipps" - Peanut Butter flavor. It's like a Reese's egg and a granola bar had a baby. So you don't feel like it's completely terrible for you because granola is good for you, right?!?! :D
