Easy as Pie

Easy as Pie...I'm not sure who came up with that phrase because, while eating pie is pretty darn easy, I don't think that making a pie fits into that same description...

Anyways, I swear that I eat more than no pudge brownies! haha But they are so fun to dress up and photograph...not to mention, easy as pie to make! Cinnamon dusted on top before baking makes for quite the crust...with whipped cream, of course!
I always eat out the middle and then put the whipped cream inside of the warm brownie and it gets all metly and moistens the brownie and I fall into a foodie coma...
WW Mini Flax Waffles make running easy as pie! ...at least easierrr...
KALE CHIPS! Easy as Pie!...Here's my method behind this Nutritious and Delicious Madness!
I use about half of a bunch of kale (2-3 stalks).
  • Just rip it up into a little bit bigger than bite-sized pieces (they will shrink).
  • Throw it onto a greased cookie sheet (use foil for easy clean-up!).
  • Spray it with a little cooking spray and cover the kale in the spices of your choice (CHILI POWDER is tasty!)
  • Bake at 400F for about 8 minutes (This will depend on how big your pieces are, how many are on the baking sheet, etc. They will appear slightly burnt...this is GOOD! Just try one every now and then and take them out when you like them. I'd say no longer than 10 minutes. They cook very very fast!)
Board Game=optional
Simple Salad (which are sometimes the best salads!) with butternut squash, a veggie burger and my favorite dressing (Annie's Buttermilk!).
Two peas in a pod...tired as a dog (hah) from their bath!
