As you may know, I LOVE energy balls. I just love having 1-2 bite treats around the house that are satisfying and filling at the same time. Poppable treats? Yes please! But 1 energy ball often turns into 5…then 15…then sadness. So I make more!!

Well I’m off to Dallas today to see my lovely friend Cassy, get to know the city a little more, shoot some photos together and eat all the things! It’s a super fast trip and I’m home by dinner time on Saturday, but we have so much planned and I can’t wait to share this trip with you guys! I’ve been to Dallas about a milli times since my family is from there and I stopped there a couple times on book tour, so I’m excited to check out a new hotel and restaurants that I’ve never heard of!

I’m suuuuuuper pumped for the sunny weather in Dallas. Colorado just keeps teasing the sh*t out of us with a downfall of snow then 60 degrees the next day. And it’s windy all.the.time. Where the tits did all this wind come from? I’m over it. So I’m hoping Dallas is cozy and warm and has a minimal wind speed. Going out around cities is way more enjoyable when it’s warm out. I honestly like eating desserts more when it’s warm out, which is perfect since we are going to TWO dessert places. Squeeeeallll!

You guys. I have a new secret obsession – The Great British Baking Show on Netflix. My friend recently told me about it and I can’t stop watching. Something about British people talking about fancy desserts is kind of like a drug. Is that weird? Totally? Whatever. I’m in love. My husband has been going to bed earlier than usual nowadays since he’s been getting up so early, so I’ll flip on the baking show and wonder how I’ve never heard of 90% of the desserts they’re making. And it’s a reality show where they aren’t mean to each other and talk sh*t about each other. That kind of reality show is the best. I’m into happy people lately.

And since this post is COMPLETELY all over the place today, here’s one more thought for you…there is a dating app that sets you up with people based on your credit score. They say that since most problems in a marriage are caused by financial issues, this new dating app sets you up with others who have a similar credit score as yourself. How do you feel about that? It cuts out the discussion before it even has to come up. I think that part is super cool. But I’ve also heard that 50% of credit scores have an error on them. That’s depressing. No but seriously, I kind of love this app idea. If I were dating, I think that’s the only dating app that I would join. Who doesn’t love a financially responsible partner?! Tell me your thoughts!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. those energy bites look amazing… I love lemon anything, and those would be preferable to the lemon poppyseed pancakes my husband insists on making (even though they’re delicious).

    Dallas weather shouldn’t be too awful right now… we’ve (texas) had a ‘dry’ period after a period of crap weather this past weekend (i.e. tornadoes and lots of rain), so it’s looking like you’re getting your wish! Super curious to hear about the restaurants and places you go… my parents are in Big D, and my husband and I are always looking for new date places when we’re there. if you don’t have it on the agenda, you really should check out Smoke. one word: bacon.

  2. I LOVE the Great British Baking Show! It’s basically the only realty tv show I will watch. But it makes me crave cupcakes, etc. 🙁 I have to watch on a full stomach to be safe!

  3. OMG JULI I ALSO JUST BECAME ADDICTED TO THE GBBW/GBBO. I still cannot put my finger on what exactly makes it so impossible to turn off, but it’s SO. ADDICTING. And it makes me want to eat all the desserts all the time. Terrible but great.

  4. BEAUTIFUL pictures. The power balls (I said balls!) look scrumptious, the green glass dish is to die for and the flowers are just so, so pretty. Making these for our hike Sunday. Thanks!

  5. Been waiting on this recipe! And now even totally more pumped because it doesn’t contain almond flour – double yassss!
    Thanks, love and safe travels!


  6. Food looks great, the weather sounds awful (I live in AZ and we are sunny and WARM today!) and what the what with this dating app?! As a single chick it’s probably a good idea because I have been on LOADS of bad dating app dates (last 2 included one who was high as a kite and the other was at a dive bar at a golf course where they had free tacos…and his roommate … who also brought his dating app date there…) I had mistakes on my credit score and have fixed it so it could be a total toss up! Who knows … dating still sucks but maybe at least knowing they have their financial shit kinda together could make it easier? Have fun on your trip!

  7. Omg I love the British baking show!!! For all the reasons you posted. These brits just seem much more real and genuinely good people at the same time than most people I know!

  8. The Great British Baking Show is my favorite!! Mary Berry is the best. I LOVE hearing about all the desserts I’ve never heard of and getting inspired to bake at home. My boyfriend and I would pick favorites in the first episode and beat on who would make it to the end. Sadly we plowed through 3 seasons very quickly. I tried watching Food Network baking shows but it’s just not the same, nobody is nice enough!

  9. Great British Bake Off is seriously the most soothing and relaxing show of all time. Maybe its the lovely British accents, the desserts or the fact they are baking in a freaking tent in the middle of the English countryside. Ugh need more seasons! #bringbacknorman

    Also – these balls look amazing.

  10. Obsessed with Great British Baking Show! I never know what they’re making, but pretty sure my husband is sick of me narrating everything I cook in a British accent. I tried to find Seasons 2 and 3 online like a crazy person before it was on Netflix. The nice competition is a big change from The Bachelor hahaha.

    Also those energy balls look SO GOOD.

  11. The Great British Bake Off is my absolute favorite! Something about accents & intimidating desserts & reality TV suspension is just so addicting!!!

  12. Weird. I thought I was the only one who was obsessed with that show?
    They had an American version for Christmas and they brought Mary Berry over to help judge, but not Paul Hollywood (is that really his last name?).
    Same concept. Same tent. Same kinds of dessert….just American accents….still a lot of happy people! I just need that positivity in my life ALL. THE. TIME.
    I even bought their cookbook and I WILL figure out how to master the kirschtorte!!

  13. UGH, I so want to make these and the chocolate ones but I don’t have a food processor!! ARGH!!!!

    any recipes to make these balls w/out a food processor? I have a ninja thingy that makes smoothies … that’s probably not the same thing?

  14. I made these as part of my weekly food prep and OMG they are so good! I used peanut butter, because I’m not paleo and it’s my fav. But these are like little lemon cookie dough bites and will be perfect for a preworkout snack! Thanks!
