Sweet Stuff

Today my sweet tooth is running rampant! I can’t get enough of the sweet stuff! 

After a nice walk around the lake with Ryan and Sadie, I enjoyed a morning meal of lemony fluff. 

Pre-Blended Lemon Bowl

Lemony Jello Bowl


  • One package lemon sugar free jello
  • 3/4 c. cottage cheese


Prepare jello only using one cup of hot water. Do not add the additional cup of cold water as directed on the packaging. After jello hardens, add 3/4 c. cottage cheese and blend until a mousse-like texture is achieved. 

I also enjoyed a chocolate peanut butter sandwich on a whole wheat sandwich thin.

Peanut Buttery!

After breakfast I hung out in the back yard with Sadie and started reading Wicked while Ryan headed off to soccer practice. 


I am going to see  Wicked, the musical on February 6 with my mom and my sister. Ryan actually received tickets for us to see the show from his mom for Christmas, so I will be going again at the end of February as well. I love musicals, so I can’t wait! 

The weather is so nice in Orlando today and it was great to spend the majority of the day outside. Ryan had fun at soccer practice and came home hungry. Since my sweet tooth was still going strong, I made us 5 minute chocolate mug cake using a recipe my aunt emailed me yesterday. 

The entire cake is made in a mug and ready to eat within 5 minutes.

Mug Cake: All Done!

The cake was delicious! We enjoyed it with a Healthy Choice fudge bar. Cake and ice cream make the perfect combination. 

Cake and Ice Cream

5 Minute Chocolate Mug Cake 


  • 4 tbsp.  flour
  • 4 tbsp. sugar
  • 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tbsp. milk
  • 3 tbsp. oil
  • Splash of vanilla extract
  • Optional: chocolate chips, nuts


Mix all dry ingredients in mug. Stir in egg. Mix in remaining wet ingredients until combined. Microwave on high for three minutes. 

I don’t know if being five minutes away from chocolate cake is a very good thing or a very bad thing… 🙂 

At this rate, my dinner will be cookies and brownies. Anything to satisfy this intense sweet tooth!
