Ooey and Gooey

Hiiiii 😀 How are ya? Thanks for all of the awesome song suggestions this morning! My iPizzle thanks you 🙂

My day was spent listening to the Bailamos! station on the TV whilst cooking up dinner for the commander’s fam.



(1 tray for the fam, 1 tray for the pilot + enchi’s for my 2:30 training appointment)



Lime and Cilantro Basmati Rice:


aaaaaand Chocolate Chip Ooey Gooey Butter cakes.


cakes (2)

I saved a little of everything for the Pilot and I to enjoy for dinner. It’s kind of nice to come home and know dinner is waiting 🙂

The Pilot’s butter cake plate:


He will eat all four of those. Before dinner, with a pile of ice cream 😉 That’s how he rolls.

I munched one too, and it was ridiculous. I LOVE yellow cake mix and these have a brilliant cakey bottom, creamy top with melted chocolate chips throughout. I now have a stomach ache and headache from the diary and sugar –not used to it like I used to be- but it was so worth it 😉

Since I was cooking all day today, I haven’t had time to get my workout face on yet, but I might practice some Zumba dances after dinner just to move around a little.

Hope you all have a great night! See ya in the morning with a love post 🙂



Something to do: Try these yoga/strength training hybrid moves! Awesome way to add some pizzazz in tomorrow’s weight routine 🙂

    What did you take out of the Pumpkin version to make it taste right with the chocolate? Those look so good, I want to lick my computer screen!

      at the bottom, i think it gives variations for the different recipes. no pumpkin or spices + chocolate chips, 2 eggs instead of 3 for the filling

    Gina, where do you find all of your amazing ingredients for your recepies? I live in Valdosta too and it is SO hard to find good, organic food here! The best I can find is the small isle at Publix, but it is so limited. And for lunch I usually stop in to see Spence at the Main Squeeze for one of those delicious Tropical Superfood smoothies! Which are amazing, but everyday can hurt the pocketbook. Any suggestions on where I can find fresh and healthy ingredients?

      hey girl,
      sometimes i get lucky at walmart! i always buy organic cucumbers and zucchini there. everything else is from publix or online (for the different stuff like cacao nibs and goji berries)
      hope this helps!
