No-Bake Carrot Cake Cream Cheese Bars & Ecookbook Giveaway!

carrotcakebars

I hope everyone had a fun, relaxing and sunshine-y Easter weekend. This was my first holiday here in The Woodlands, TX. Will and I have had some rough times lately– we both lost 2 family members this spring all within a few weeks of each other and being away from the rest of our families on the first holiday without them was hard. We decided to make the most of it, go all-out and celebrate doing what we love– cooking, entertaining and playing outside. We had a few friends come over and made way too much food: Apples on Horseback (apple slices wrapped in manchego, proscuitto and rosemary, stay tuned for the recipe), sweet potato biscuits, scotch eggs, parmesan chicken meatballs, blue cheese bison meatballs, ricotta pie and these amazing little No-Bake Carrot Cake Cream Cheese Bars. I got the recipe from fellow dietitian Lindsay @ The Lean Green Bean Blog who shared the recipe in a guest post by Kylie at Yeah…Imma Eat That.

I’m also super excited to announce the debut of my dear friend and fellow bloggers e-cookbook, 27. You may know Dixya from her amazing food photos and recipes at Food, Pleasure, and Health or from the Dietitian Spotlight Series article she was featured in back in November.

27 has 27 wholesome recipes mostly inspired by her childhood and love for different cuisines. There are five different categories (In the Morning, From the Garden, Quick Bites, Dinner-Friendly, and Sweet Tooth) that features lots of plant-based, wholesome and healthful recipes. To enter the giveaway, just say something in the comments section below or if you’d like to purchase a copy of 27 via PayPal, click here.
