Carrots ”˜N’ Cake has had quite a few different looks over the years! February 2008   September 2008   August 2010   September 2011 And now CNC has a new look! Did you see it? The current layout isn’t all that different, but I think it’s a little easier on the eyes. I thought it was a tad overwhelming before. I hope you guys like it! I’ll be updating the pages in the coming weeks””some…

Good morning! Happy Hump Day! The first thing I did when I woke up this morning was check who won the election. It was close last night when I went to bed. I’m glad to see we have four more years with President Obama! [image source] Breakfast Yesterday morning’s breakfast was a Sweet Breakfast Scramble, but instead of squash/pumpkin, I used chopped apple. To make it, I cut up half of an apple, microwaved it…

Good morning! Happy Election Day! As soon as I finish this blog post, I’m heading out to get my vote on. I hope you plan to vote today, too. Maybe this pug will help you decide! Breakfast Yesterday morning’s breakfast was a Sweet Breakfast Scramble with a massive scoop of Teddie peanut butter. I went overboard with the canned pumpkin, so this batch is a little watery. For a less watery Sweet Breakfast Scramble, just…

Hello, hello! Apparently, I’m a big fan of this post title because I used it back in December 2008 and then more recently in June with “Super Duper Sunday.” Haha! I’m so creative. Well, it was the perfect way to describe yesterday. Mal, Murphy, and I had a super Sunday! Breakfast I started my day with a Sweet Breakfast Scramble in an almost-empty Teddie peanut butter jar with, of course, an extra scoop because I love nut…

I did it! I did my first “Girl” workout as prescribed! Woohoo! I finished “Helen,” but, man, it wasn’t pretty. My time wasn’t super fast, but I’m still proud of myself for Rx-ing a benchmark workout. I first did “Helen” back in February and finished in 12:12, but I used bands for the pull-ups. I thought I could do the workout as prescribed last night since I’ve been busting out kipping pull-ups lately (and I…

Two years ago today, Mal and I officially became homeowners!! I can’t believe two years has flown by so quickly. I also can’t believe we’ve managed to stay in one place for an entire two years. Remember when we used to move every 6 months or so? I’m not going to lie, I’m so glad those days are behind us. Moving is stressful! It’s also crazy to think about how much our house has changed…

Good morning! Happy Saturday! Murphy and I just got back from a wonderful trip to the dog park. It was a beautiful fall morning for a walk in the park. Breakfast Mal needed to be awake bright and early this morning for Saturday school, so I got up and ate breakfast with him. I had a Sweet Breakfast Scramble (minus the squash/pumpkin) with a scoop of Teddie peanut butter and a TJ’s pumpkin butter. After…

Hi, friends!  It’s a beautiful fall day here in Massachusetts! Best season ever. Breakfast I woke up craving peanut butter this morning, so I whipped up a Sweet Breakfast Scramble with canned pumpkin and added a massive scoop of Teddie peanut butter to it… and then went back for an equally huge second scoop. I also drank””not one””but two glasses of coconut-flavored Dandy Blend with breakfast. After making pumpkin spice Dandy Blend the other day,…

Hello, hello! I hope you’re having a wonderful Wednesday!  Breakfast I started my day with a very pumpkin-y breakfast: Sweet Breakfast Scramble in a jar (SBSIAJ) with canned pumpkin, TJ’s Pumpkin Butter, and an extra scoop of Teddie Peanut Butter in the mix. The combo of pumpkin butter + peanut butter was de-lic-ious! I also drank a glass of iced pumpkin spice Dandy Blend with almond milk. After breakfast, I got my plank on! Here’s the first…

Good morning! Happy Friday! I can’t believe the weekend is almost here. This week really flew by! Breakfast This morning’s breakfast was a Sweet Breakfast Scramble with canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice in a jar. I had an almost-empty jar of Teddie Peanut Butter, so I cooked up the scramble and then poured it in to enjoy all of the melt-y peanut butter. I also drank a glass of Dandy Blend with almond milk….

Hooray for fall! I’m really diggin’ the beautiful autumn weather in New England lately. The leaves are finally starting to change color and the cool, crisp, sunny days are the best thing ever. Speaking of diggin’ things, Dig Safe came by the other day to get us ready to pave our driveway next week. Woohoo!!! Ok, paving our driveway is probably not very exciting for you (at all), but Mal and I are PSYCHED! Our…

Holy moly, I just went on a major cleaning spree. Our house wasn’t even all that messy, but the urge to clean just came over me. Does that ever happen to you? You just feel the need to clean? I’m not usually psyched about cleaning, but, sometimes, it feels good to do! So fresh. So clean. Where’d Waldo Murphy? When I was snapping photos of our nice clean house for this post, I realized I…

Did anyone else watch last week’s episode of New Girl when Jess does impressions of Urkel and Michelle Tanner to impress her new (younger) neighbors? Well, it reminded me of The Mindset List that my brother-in-law told me about the other day. He’s a college professor, so he uses it for his students. The Mindset List is an annual list of values/things that shape the worldview (or “mindset”) of students about 18 years old and…

Good morning, friends! Boy, do I have a delicious recipe for you! Breakfast When Mal and I returned home from our vacation on Tuesday morning, I was starving for breakfast, but there was hardly any food in the house. We had eggs, so I thought about making a two-ingredient pancake or “Oatmeal” Minus the Oats, but we didn’t have any bananas””only frozen ones in the freezer. I figured it couldn’t hurt to try making one…
