As I was uploading my photos into Ecto for this post, I realized that it was very Carrots ‘N’ Cake-like. It starts with a healthy salad, ends with dessert, and there’s a cute pug in the middle. Doesn’t it just scream CNC?!? 😉

After a 4.5-hour bus ride home from NYC, Mal picked me up from the T station and we headed straight home to make dinner. We were both starving, so we threw together a quick and easy meal. We enjoyed a couple of arugula salads with tomatoes, cucumbers, mushrooms, broccoli, celery, red onion, leftover Pasta Ponza, tomato-basil feta crumbles, and balsamic vinegar. It was a pretty kick-ass salad, if you ask me! 😀

While Mal and I enjoyed dinner on the front porch, Murphy hung out in the yard. (Gosh, he’s adorable! Look at that pug face!!)

For dessert, I whipped up a batch of Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies. Oh, yes, I did! 😀 I had a serious craving for one after seeing them at Magnolia this afternoon, so I used Courtney’s Granola Blondies recipe to inspire my own.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

Makes 12 bars

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg

  1. Hey Tina!! These look fabulous! I definitely took a snapshot from my computer so I can make them later! Now my tummy is craving something sweet 🙂
    And I just started a new blog so I would love for you to check it out!! Your blog is THE BOMB so if you have any advice I would seriously love to hear it. I just started my blog this past weekend so I’m definitely a new blogger.

  2. What a delicious end to a wonderful past few days. Congrats on the Fitness vid by the way. Aren’t the staff there absolutely amazing? I know I’m biased, since I interned there, but they never ceased to blow my mind with their kind and unthreatening professionalism yet down to earth nature.

    P.S. I think you may have turned me onto blondies… and I’m a die-hard brownie fan. This could get dangerous 😉

  3. i nearly made those blondies tonight, you temptress. i have a thing for blondies (the bars, not the boys/girls [even though blonde people are attractive too])

  4. I just read this post and immediately made the blondies….they are baking right now! If they taste as good as they smell, wow wow wow!

  5. Tina, is it 1 cup of peanut butter & then chocolate chips or peanut butter & chocolate chips (just asking bc I know you can buy peanut butter chips @ the store)
    Thanks!
    These look delish!
