I. just. couldn’t. help. myself.

Trail Mix Treats


These are similar to rice krispie treats, but I made them a bit healthier by using bran flakes and peanut butter instead of rice krispies and butter.  I had a plentiful amount of ingredients you would find in trail mix plus marshmallows that needed to be used soon, so I decided to make trail mix treats!

Homemade Butterfinger Bars

Trick or Treat!  Halloween is just around the corner.  I bet you can’t find a butterfinger in Korea, but now you can make them!!!!  This 5-ingredient super easy recipe will blow you away.  Not only does it taste like a butterfinger, it’s better for you with no high fructose corn syrup or artificial ingredients.

Homemade Butterfinger Bars

Servings: 8


For the Bars

-1/4 cup agave nectar, honey, or maple syrup (I used agave nectar)

-1/3 cup dark brown sugar

-a pinch of salt (1/8 tsp)

-3/4 cup creamy peanut butter

‘Canned’ Pumpkin

Canned pumpkin is vital during the holidays back in the U.S.A.  It is hard to find and expensive in Korea.  So, I decided to make my own using pre-peeled and sliced pumpkin/squash from Costco.  One 900 g container will yield about 3 (15 oz) cans of mashed pumpkin ready for use in my Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread or anything calling for canned pumpkin!

Servings: yields about 4 1/2 cups of mashed pumpkin


- 1 (900 g) container of pre-peeled and sliced pumpkin or orange squash


Gluten-free BB Brownies

The basis for these brownies is … wait for it… black beans (BB).  Who would have thought you could use beans to make brownies? I am a fan! These brownies are dense and fudgy, less cakey than a typical brownie.
