    Something about candy is so much better than normal chocolate chips in cookies? I used Hershey’s dark chocolate “pieces” in some zucchini cookies I made and they turned out awesome! I love the crunchy shell! Cute pictures of the cookie massacre:)

    Mmm, M&M cookies… delicious.
    Yoga sounds great! It’s been awhile since I made it to a class, I should really look into that.

    I really need to find a good yoga class. None of the classes I’ve attended leave me with that jello feeling! Oh those cookies look GOOD! And I could never be around your stash of M&Ms. They’d be gone in less than a week πŸ˜‰

    Fact: M&M cookies are more fun to eat than choc chip cookies!…even better if it’s the coconut M&Ms!

    I hardly ever buy frozen veggies expect for corn and peas. For some reason, they always taste better frozen to me. (Unless its fresh corn on the cob when its in season). Mmmm, those cookies look fantastic! Love the picture of Maddie and Derek! πŸ™‚

    I’m needing more yoga in my life too. My only option right now is home options and I can’t motivate myself for it beyond doing downward dog a few times throughout the day and other standard stretches.

    The cookies – big is better. I think it makes them a better texture too. Smart decision. πŸ˜‰

    Yoga is amazing stuff πŸ™‚ Being a yoga teacher sometimes makes it really hard to find a class that I 100% love. But I do my best to step out of my comfort zone by going to classes I wouldn’t normally go to. I’ll take a basic or a gentle class instead (which is so hard- because I’m really more of a power/vinyasa kind of girl) because it can just be really nice to have someone else telling you what to do- and let me check out. I think it’s everyone’s dream to be able to not only walk to a yoga studio they love, but also be able to afford a multitude of classes each week. I’ve been utilizing free podcasts and classes at the studio where I teach as much as possible- as well as strengthening my home practice as well. Good luck πŸ™‚

    I just bought a groupon for a month of unlimited yoga classes in my area and I’m excited to use it! I know I need to incorporate yoga into my running!

    Do you have a recipe for the corn muffins and are they very sweet? My husband hates super sweet cornbread but I know you tend to be more on the healthy side!

    Hello! I’m a new poster here and just wanted to say I love your blog and your approach to healthy living. As a yoga fiend I can relate to your feeling about yoga – I’ve gone through phases where I just haven’t jived with a particular studio or teachers and its disheartening because I love the authentic studio experience. Its awesome that you feel so good once you’re doing yoga – yoga’s ability to help you forget everything else is what I love most about it πŸ™‚

    I love using steam in the bag frozen veggies as a way to get my veggie fix during the day at work. So easy to just throw them in the microwave at the office!

    M&M cookies are the best, those candies make everything better.

    I need more yoga in my life too. I can’t wait until I find my “big girl job” so I can finally have a normal schedule and can actually go to classes. Right now I work such random hours that I can’t commit to a class. I’m trying to find a good dvd but it’s just not quite the same

      The funny part is she was all about stealing the cookie until Derek dove after her with it in his mouth. Then, all of a sudden, she didn’t want the cookie anymore. πŸ™‚

    I love yoga! I bought an unlimited pass to a studio this past month and it was awesome. It paid for itself in about 8 classes so it was worth it. Now I’m moving though and I’m going to miss the studio and the instructor a lot!

    Gosh i completely forgot about M&M cookies. wow.

    I feel the same way about frozen vegetables. Even cooked into a dish with loads of seasoning or sauce, there’s that freezer taste. Maybe I’ll look into the steam-in-a-bag next time I just can’t be bothered to chop the fresh ones.

    It’s always better to make cookies big rather than small. When you bake small cookies then you don’t get the distinction between the crispy edges and the chewy centre.

    Just a tip from one cookie baker to another!

    Ever since I went to the Yoga Spa in Seattle (while on vacation), I haven’t found a studio in Utah that even comes close to their classes and atmosphere (not mention even HAS hot yoga that isn’t Bikram). I love how I feel when I do it, but it’s hard, especially when the closest studio is at least a 20 minute drive!
