This yoga teacher training has taken any free time that I might have once had, but I love it. I leave each class feeling like I’m on the right path. Then I get home and have a small panic attack at how much there is to remember. We’re meeting on Thursdays, the weekends, and some Tuesdays and there’s a lot to cover each time. You never really understand how much goes into a class until you learn how to teach it! Right now I’m still in the robot stage where I’m just spouting out the poses by the book. Hopefully soon I’ll feel more comfortable to bring in some personality.

It’s hard to believe that we’re going to cover everything in just ten weeks. Sometimes, it feels like the end is never in sight and then the next moment it’s coming up too soon. I still get terrified at the thought of teaching to a room full of students, but teaching the others in the program is helping to tackle this fear.

However, it’s left not much time to think of something to make for this week, so I thought it would be a great time to focus on some of my favorite recipes! There’s nothing better than revisiting an old classic, and I chose four of just some of the amazing things I’ve made over the past year.

1) I have to go with the Snickers Trifle. This was definitely everything I could have wanted in a birthday dessert. Layers of chocolate cake, peanut butter pudding, and caramel, what more could you want?

2) Almond pretzel bark. This is a crazy quick amazing snack that really helps to tackle those chocolate cravings.

3) Chocolate chip cookie cups were the hit of the office when I brought them in! These are like a gooey chocolate chip cookie but thick enough to hold some frosting.

4) I couldn’t not add a savory dish to the list. This zucchini sandwich is one of my childhood favorites and perfect any time of the year!

MeHi! My name’s Alexis and I finally took the leap into blogging after reading so many fun posts by other food bloggers.  I’ve always had a passion for eating, but have never really felt comfortable in the kitchen.  There are so many drool-worthy recipes out there, that I wanted to document my musings in the kitchen both following others’ recipes and becoming brave enough to create my own.  Please take a look around! I really want to hear from you! If you make something, like something, don’t like something, please comment or use the contact form!  Reading your comments really makes my day!  If you’re looking for an easier way to get my recipes, you can sign up for my email and get them directly to your inbox.  I hope to hear from soon.
