Get ready for the craziest week ever on Carrots ‘N’ Cake!! There’s going to be a last-time trip, fancy events, a cookbook launch, giveawaysdeals, my final Lose the Dough check-in, and a wedding. Oh, yea, and I turn the big 3-0. It’s going to be an interesting (and exciting) week!

Breakfast

I started my morning with OOIAJ made with old-fashioned oats, Mad Hectic oatmeal, dried cranberries, walnuts, chia seeds, and vanilla soy milk.

I also drank some birthday cake iced coffee with soy milk and a splash of carmel syrup (no HFCS). So delish!

Reminder: This is the last week to get the Buy 2, Get 1 FREE deal on the birthday cake coffee!! You know you want to try it! 😉

Cranberry-Walnut Lentil Bars

I slacked on blogging last night, but I did do some baking! This baking experiment includes red lentils, apricot preserves, peanut butter, walnuts, and dried cranberries. Why not, right? 😉

These bars turned out quite well– they sort of remind me of blondies, but with a tangy fruit flavor from the apricot preserves and dried cranberries. The red lentils add a chewy, moist texture. I’d definitely make them again.

The Early Years

Being my birthday week and all, I thought I’d share some photos from my early days.

Mom and me. I’m just a few days old.

My mom and I were mistaken about the laundry basket. It was actually a dresser drawer.
