So it is an understatement to say that this tragedy has hit me hard. I am praying for the lives affected by this storm and I pray that they will be able to pick up the pieces of their lives. May God be with them. #PrayForOklahoma <3

I have been watching and reading news reports all day about the tornado that ripped through Oklahoma. And it hit me hard that it could easily be anyone including me and my family. Watching those people that lost everything and hearing that so many little kids lost their lives is really messing with me. Questions are going through my mind. Are we prepared? Where would we go? What would we do? Memphis sees this type of weather all the time. And as I write this post, a tornado warning is in affect and news reporters are warning us to be prepared. So this is really getting to me.
My latest BzzCampaign features Kroger's Yogurt Smoothie Bars. BzzAgent sent my a BzzKit that included a free coupon for Kroger Yogurt Smoothie Bars as well as $1 off coupons on a variety of other guilt-free products. The kit could not have come at a better time with the Memphis heat kicking my butt. You can't beat free, especially free frozen treats in the summer.
I purchased the Strawberry Banana flavor smoothie bars with my free coupon and really liked it. I never knew that something low-fat could be so good! I used to shy away from these types of products fearing that they would have no flavor and a weird texture, but that is not so with these bars. These bars were so rich and creamy and had actual strawberries! I will most definitely purchasing these bars again.

Today was her birthday(should I dare tell her age) and I wanted to treat her. Today was my mother's birthday and I wanted to take her somewhere different than just our regular old places. So we went to Saito's Japanese and Vietnamese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar. And boy oh boy, was it good. My brother, mother, and I tried some new types of Sushi and had some Chicken and Shrimp fried rice that was to die for.

I decided to bring my camera while the family and I went for a quick drive. For some reason I have been feeling like quite the photographer. And I have no idea why. But it was just too beautiful outside to pass up taking a few snaps while out.
I a got a couple of pictures of the beautiful Memphis sky and of my handsome nephew laughing and smiling.
I also got a picture of the dying corn crops that are found all around the city. It hurts seeing all that delicious corn dry roasting in the sun. Darn that pesky drought!

I've got another quick and easy recipe for you guys. Unlike my last recipe that was no-bake, this recipe requires the oven. I know, I know. It's summer and it's hot everywhere, but I can promise you these flourless peanut butter cookies are worth making your house 100 degrees.
These cookies were so unbelievable gooey and peanut buttery. And they kind of remind me of the peanut butter cookies from Subway, which I am obsessed with. Who would have thought you could make cookies without flour? Not me! And that is why I had to make them for myself. And I am now a believer. So this recipe is most definitely going in my OneNote Recipe Notebook. Enjoy!
Flourless Cookie Recipe
- 1 cup of peanut butter
- 1 cup of sugar ( I did 1/2 white sugar 1/2 brown sugar)
- 1 egg
- Finely chopped nuts
DirectionsPreheat oven to 350°F.
Mix sugar and egg together, then add peanut butter. Form into 1" balls and press with fork.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes. Makes about a dozen.
