Fuel To Go Pancakes

Two of my most popular recipes are my Fuel to Go Muffins and my Fuel to Go Protein Bars, so I decided to add one more nutritionally dense recipe to the repertoire with some loaded up pancakes. These pancakes are made with the healthy goodness of whole wheat flour, chia seed, hemp seed, pumpkin and sunflower seeds. Added to all that goodness is a collection of dried fruit, apple and pineapple.
These pancakes are a bit more dense than your usual white flour pancakes due to all the super healthy ingredients in them. They are sweetened with 100% organic Maple Syrup and tastes great with a mix of sugar-free berries.

Ergo Chef - What Each Knife in Your Knife Set Is Made For

Do you know what each knife in your knife set is made for? Do you have a complete set of knives in your kitchen drawer or knife block and find you only use a few of them? What is the difference between a Chef's knife and a carving knife. It's time to sharpen up your knife knowledge and take advantage of all those knives!
I recently received a complete set of Ergo Chef* Crimson G10 series knives. My first reaction upon opening the box was "WOW" these knives are gorgeous!, but in the kitchen just being pretty doesn't cut it, so I went to work trying out every knife in the set. These knives are exceptional! I love how they feel in my hand, the perfect balance and weight make easy work of cutting, chopping, slicing and dicing. Top-Quality Engineering with blades made of Precision German High Carbon Steel and handles from The World's Strongest handle material G10 fiberglass resin in a beautiful wood grain look. So what is each knife in your set made for, lets get started with the most important knife in your collection; the Chef Knife.

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

 Chocolate Truffle Cookies - the ultimate chocolate lover's cookie.

I think this recipe should come with a warning because they are only for the serious Chocoholic! Great crisp texture on the outside, soft and chewy on the inside.
