Pizza + Scuffins

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.


An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Oops. I definitely overdid it tonight. Too much good food!!! Now my belly kind of hurts. Wahhh. 😕 But, tomorrow is a new day. Less pizza, fewer scuffins! 😉


Mal and I met Blain, my webmaster, at the Hancock Tavern for dinner this evening. Mal borrowed some computer software from Blain the other day, so we made plans to hang out and so Mal could return it.


When we arrived at the Hancock Tavern, we sat outside on the back patio.


We were chatting and enjoying ourselves when this weird, drunk guy invited himself to sit down at our table. It was sooo awkward! Our waitress saw the whole thing happen, so she politely offered to move us inside away from the crazy dude. She totally saved the day! 😉

Once (safely) inside, we placed our dinner order with our waitress. I had a garden salad with honey mustard on the side. (Somehow my salad only cost $1.95! What a deal! 😀 )


I also shared a Buffalo Chicken Pizza with Mal. Well, he ate most of it. I had 2 slices.


Mmm… my favorite kind of meal! :mrgreen:



When I got home from dinner, I headed straight to the kitchen. I had scuffins on my mind– specifically, Healthy Carrot Cake Power Scuffins! I saw them on Angela’s blog this morning and couldn’t get them out of my mind all day.

I followed the recipe almost exactly, but I didn’t have raisins in the house, so I substituted chopped dates. I think the dates were a nice addition! 😀

These Healthy Carrot Cake Power Scuffins are absolutely outstanding. I was planning to enjoy them for breakfast tomorrow morning, but I ended up eating two tonight. I could not wait until morning. The smell alone made me want to eat one ASAP!


If you’re thinking about making these scuffins, do it!! You will not be disappointed!

I’m catching up with my DVR and then hitting the hay. G’night!



  1. The pizza looks so good! So glad the waitress saved the day with the drunk guy, lol, what an awkward situation for sure!

    Saw those on Angelas Blog and they do look amazing as ever!!! I like that you used dates too!

    Have a great day! xoxo

  2. I saw that recipe from Ang, too! She has got some real talent concocting recipes like that! Between these carrot cake scuffins and the banana soft serve parfaits, she’s got me drooling over her foods allll the time!

  3. Is the photo of you you and your webmaster…. or you and the drunk guy? Or are they one in the same? Hmm… so mysterious! (I’m going with Blain, he doesn’t look drunk or weird enough to be your unwelcome visitor.)

  4. I heart pizza – ordering in on Friday! Multigrain crust, easy cheese, pep, back bacon and mushroom! I can’t wait!

  5. alright, i need to know– where on earth do you find the time to bake and cook?! i come home after work (and sitting in traffic) and can barely get the energy to drag myself to my pajamas, let alone make scuffins. but they look really good 🙂
