Black Bean Dip in Stuffed Peppers

This recipe is so simple to make!  If you are looking for something to make quick that is full of flavor, this is your meal! All you need is 4 ingredients! It’s pure genius! I was inspired by Angela’s  60 Second Black Bean Dip and Stuffed Peppers.

Ingredients:

  • 2 peppers, any color
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup tomato/pasta sauce or salsa
  • Handful of carrots, chopped
  • Crushed black pepper

I had recently received a package from Don Sabrosa with a variety of salsas, so I knew this would be the perfect meal to try the salsa’s with! I went with the Natural Gourmet Salsa – Roasted Garlic Mild flavor. The second I opened the can I could smell all the fabulous ingredients. It was so yummy! I love me some salsa!

All you do is put all the ingredients (except for the peppers) into the food processor, and away you go! I processed mine for about 20 seconds. I liked to keep some chunky bits in the dip, but that’s my own personal preference.

itsbritneybitch 299 I love my little food processor! It is so fabulous and petite and perfect for making dips (and ice cream!)

How yummy does that look?

I then sliced the peppers and filled it up with the dip! It’s that easy! I myself am an avid cheese lover, so I topped the stuffed peppers with some cheese and into the oven it went! 350F for about 25 minutes! I pretty much just judged mine by when the cheese was all melted!

Nutritious AND Delicious! Yumm!

itsbritneybitch 259

Are you thinking about making these tonight yet? If you aren’t, you totally should be! You WON’T be disappointed! Thanks for the great idea Ange!

I also am USUALLY a serious sour cream fan. I know its not the best in the whole world for me, but I like the cool creamy taste with any Mexican inspired dish. Tonight with my meal, I decided to try a new trick > instead of sour cream, use plain yogurt! Worked like a charm!

Post dinner boyf and I finished watching Season 1 of True Blood on Netflix. I love that show! We have to catch up with season 2 now. Luckily it’s OnDemand, so we can watch it whenever we feel like. I heart True Blood! We watched the movie and enjoyed a glass of pinot

itsbritneybitch 266

Last  (and BEST) part about the bean dip before I forget: LEFTOVERS!! I got a while Tupperware container filled with fabulous dip! I love it! Lunch tomorrow – check!

Peanut Butter Banana Bread with Filling!

Ever since my grocery run yesterday, I have been baking and cooking up a storm! I am so proud of myself and feel so accomplished when I make fabulous meals (and treats)! This wonderful treat is inspired by Angela over at Oh She Glows. I am an avid reader and fan of Ange and her recipes, and when I saw this little number pop up in her posts, I knew I had to recreate it and enjoy it myself! Here are all the ingredients I used!

itsbritneybitch 285 

Ingredients:

Wet

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup agave
  • 1/4 cup organic virgin coconut oil
  • 2 bananas mashed
  • 1/2 cup milk

I received a lovely package from Singing Dog Vanilla a while ago and haven’t had the chance to use it yet, so I was excited today when I got to bust it out! It smelled great!

itsbritneybitch 286 

Step 1: Mix all the wet ingredients in a bowl and set aside. I had to use a mixer to make sure all the bananas were fully mashed down.

itsbritneybitch 289

Dry

  • 1 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 T wheat germ
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • pinch of fine grain sea salt
  • 1 t baking soda

Step 2: Mix the dry ingredients together with the wet ingredients

itsbritneybitch 288 

Step 3: Place batter in a pre-greased pan

itsbritneybitch 290

Step 4: Place in oven at 325F for 30-35 minutes.

 itsbritneybitch 291

While the bread is in the oven, you make the filling!

Filling

  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 T agave
  • 1 heaping T peanut butter
  • 1 small mashed banana

Step 5: Mix all filling ingredients together. Make sure banana is mashed down!

itsbritneybitch 292

Step 6: Scoop filling into Ziploc baggie and set aside

 itsbritneybitch 294

Step 7: (Optional) Lick filling plate clean ?!?

itsbritneybitch 293 

Step 8: DING DING! Bread is ready! Take it out of the oven! Don’t let it burn!!

itsbritneybitch 295

Step 9: Be proud of your baking accomplishments! You are a rock star and a fabulous chef!! :)

Side note: Not really sure why the bread looks a little lopsided. I am willing to overlook that fact if you are!

 itsbritneybitch 302

Step 10: After you let the bread cool down for a bit, you are ready to test out your creation! Slice out a piece and then grab your filling bag. You can cut out the bottom corner of the Ziploc bag to spread the filling over your piece. Go nuts!

 itsbritneybitch 276

Step 11: Isn’t it so scrumptious looking?!?!

itsbritneybitch 274

Step 12: Stop staring at your beautiful treat and eat it already! :)

itsbritneybitch 275

Step 13: Repeat step 12! And Enjoy!

itsbritneybitch 280 

I am pretty sure that peanut butter and bananas may go better together than peanut butter and jelly (GASP!) Anyone else out there feel the same way?

This bread rocked my world and the filling was to die for. The bread was so soft and moist and the filling was so full of flavor! I loved the banana bits in the bread! I can’t say enough good things about it! I know Angela made vegan muffins with this recipe by using a few different ingredients. I need to invest in a muffin pan! Another fabulous home made treat! Yum!

Drowning in Cantaloupe

I can’t believe its SEPTEMBER already. I also can’t believe how much it feels like Fall already here in Philly. When I get up in the morning and take Jackson out, I have to wear a zip up sweatshirt! I have been tweeting about it too! I feel like the weather and season changed overnight! Does anyone else feel like it all happened way too fast? I do love the cool weather though! Jeans and t-shirt is my favorite wardrobe weather!

What’s your favorite season?

itsbritneybitch 001

This morning I made a warm and cool breakfast as an ode to the change of seasons. I enjoyed some freshly squeezed watermelon juice and a Kashi Heart to Heart waffle. It was delightful! Light and fresh and the perfect size.

  itsbritneybitch 003  

I also decided to tame the beast that was this ginormous cantaloupe. I literally think it weighed the same as Jackson (12 pounds!) Which do you think is bigger??

itsbritneybitch 208

Boyf and I got this bad boy at the Farmers Market in Delaware the other day. You can’t find massive cantaloupes like that anywhere around here! It’s HUGE!

itsbritneybitch 209

I love fresh fruit like this in the summer!

itsbritneybitch 210 

Look at how juicy it is!

itsbritneybitch 212 

I pulled another Angela and made a bowl out of the skin of the cantaloupe.

itsbritneybitch 213

Such a fun way to eat fruit!

itsbritneybitch 172

Look at how much that bad boy made! I am going to be drowning in cantaloupe for the next week! I love it!

itsbritneybitch 173

Yum! What’s your favorite summer fruit?itsbritneybitch 175
