Jenn! The way you arrange your photos, you make me hungry even when I’m not!  Happy  WIAW!

Sarah @ The Smart Kitchen

Just bought some Chai Rooibos tea last night at World Market…hope it is as delicious as your tea sounds! [Although I think I have a nut butter problem–well, I KNOW I have a nut butter problem–because when I read that tea description all I could think was “What if I combined my Chai Nutty Butter with my Apple Pie Peanut Butter???]

Jen @ Homemadeadventure

that tea sounds amazing! is your mom selling any future batches?


I have to say- All your eats DO look like a party! Cinnamon Chai Apple Pie tea? It even rhymes.

Amy B @ Second City Randomness

I still don’t know what I’m making for the superbowl… yikes…

Ami @ parsnipsandpears

Good eats!  I STILL have not tried spaghetti squash (I know, where have I BEEN)!  I love that you just dumped some sauce and cheese in there though and called it a day… I think that is enough to tempt me to try it out next week 🙂

Mindy @ Clueless Nut

I want to eat all of that Sunday, too! Yummy eats!


Yum! Those are awesome Superbowl party ideas… I might have to borrow a couple.  🙂

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

haha go for it girly! <3

Gina @ Running to the Kitchen

Ok can we meet up for the superbowl and just have an eating party instead with all those eats? Please and thank you 🙂

Heather Blackmon

cinnamon chai apple pie looseleaf tea – YUM! That sounds delicious. Happy WIAW!

greenhorn gourmande

Those perogis look amazing!  Also, I know I’m going to have to give that savory cheese cake a try.  What a great idea.

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

Hehe its a big-deal football game in the states. The commercials they show during it area always hilarious so I love watching those eating/talking/partying during the game. Unless my team is playing — then I pay attention 😉 Love ya chickadee!

Blonde Ponytail

I’m laughing at Emma’s comment below.  Superbowl’s are made for FOOD and funny commercials!  Can I join you?!

Anna @ The Guiltless Life

I’m so glad you have a recipe for tzatziki – my favourite Greek dip to pair with spanakopitas! Mmm the best! And I’m a huge perogie fan too, so yay! I will hereby declare them healthy because a nutritionist eats them too haha. xx

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

mmmm spanakopitas make my heart sing! I might make some this week — the craving has started!!!

and if you bake the perogis at 400F in a toaster oven they get all crispy and flaky on the outside and then fluffy inside… its glorious! and b/c you didn’t fry them, its the equivalent of pasta and potatoes so, pair a few with veggies or soup and heck yes it’s a healthy balanced meal!

can i come over for superbowl sunday? i should start traveling now, yes? Miss you. Love almond joy!

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

book that flight lovah!! How are you loving NZ? and more importantly, are you visiting me on the way back to TX when you move again? =)

lindsay cotter

i plan on visiting at some point this year, for sure!!



Jenn @ Peas and Crayons


omg so I thought of you at the store the other day — saw those new mini almond joy M&M-like bites and almost had to buy them! Then I saw how much dye they put in them. Shame on them — ruining a good thing!!! lol

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

With the right sauce it’s heavenly!!! even better with sautteed veggies in the mix too! =)

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

Haha i’m trying to get her to start up something — she had an all natural beauty company for a little while and then got bored. Maybe tea is text! 😉

Teavanna has really great blends and she mixes a number of those to make the tea taste like apple pie – check them out — awesome company! <3

lindsay cotter

ahh we need to protest then! come on almond joy, get it natural please. 😉



Hi Jenn.  Just found your blog via some WIAW posts today.  You are amazing, there are so many links…thank you so much, I look forward to checking them, and YOUR site out!!!  Have a wonderful Wed.

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

Aside from my homemade spinach quiche…. this one is by far the second best i’ve ever had — totally try it darlin! and pick me up a few while you’re there? =)


excellent eats! Happy WIAW 🙂


Love your photo layout.  What photo editing software do you use to get the collage?  I keep intending to link up to WIAW but can not remember to photograph what I eat!  Next week…

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

Getting the hang of the first wiaw is always the hardest – then its smooth sailing! <3 I use Picnik for the collages but they are shutting down the website in April. Google+ should have some of their photo edits available to use as well but I haven’t checked it out yet! Photobucket also has some really cool photo-editing tools for free =) Hope that helps! xoxo

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

Right now darlin’! Peak season is Fall-Winter [though its avail year round] Get on it! =)

Rachael @ Passing Daisies

your eats look beautiful as always, jenn! and your superbowl ideas look so yummy!


I looove that you always drink Kombucha. I haven’t had it in so long, I need some in my life! Happy Wednesday!

Emma (Sweet Tooth Runner)

I have no idea what a superbowl is, but I want to join you with it if that’s what we’re eating! YUM!!

Love you chica! <3

She Rocks Fitness

Your “want to” Superbowl eats all look DELISH! I wish the Superbowl was on Saturday, so I can recover on Sunday…Sheesh! Hope you are having a wonderful day and thanks always for hosting pretty lady! 🙂


Your superbowl snacks look amazing! You should consider making at least a few of those 😉

Lisa ♥ Healthful Sense

Ya know in all my years stalking TJ’s I’ve never had that quiche.
Love the idea of the tomato sauce directly in the squash…
Annnnnd LOVE TJ’s PB pretzels… addictive!!

Sarah McGinn

Thanks, as always, for hosting! I love your collage of what you ate! Wouldn’t that be fun to do everday!


Oh my goodness your eats look delicious…and the Super Bowl eats make me want to head east and watch the game with you.  Such yummy apps.
I am still waiting for Paul’s key lime pie.  Any chance he will guest post the recipe?

oops I meant to email you! bad jenn, bad! The picture from last WIAW was the link to the recipe. Let me grab it again for to to make life easy though! <3

It’s not healthy…. but its perfection! no restaurant has ever topped this pie in my eyes… and P’s dad has a key lime tree I’m going to raid this year b/c it is over the top outstanding with fresh juice!


love ya!

Meghan Cole

I love me some spaghetti squash. I totally could have eaten everything you ate!

Amanda @ Semi-Health Nut

I still (STILL) have yet to try spaghetti squash…when is it even in season??

Those pizza cups look good!  I saw something similar that used fish taco filling instead of pizza filling…it seems the possibilities are endless!

Have a great week friend! 🙂

Tessa @ Amazing Asset

Woo Jenn great party treats! Those nachos… oh lawddd 🙂

Ellie@Fit for the Soul

Hi Jenn!  Haha sorry about just the breakfast recipe!! I meant to post more but the whole day I got busy with picking up my altered wedding gown, wedding registry, everything! 😛  I hope you’re having a great day~~

Christine McCarthy

haha. I invited friends over just so I can make food. 😉 btw, will you make me some perogis? 😉


I need to get on this.  I’ve been meaning to do a WIAW post for a long time but I keep forgetting! I’m putting it in my calendar for next week 🙂 

lindsay cotter

i added late. hope thats okay. XOXO


Your foods look really yummy and the super bowl snacks look good too. 
Thanks for hosting this I am having so much fun 🙂

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

awww yay! Glad you’re having a blast Shirley! xo

Jenn @ Peas and Crayons

of course it is almond joy!!! MWAH!

Heather @ Kiss My Broccoli

Mmmm, I LOVE perogis! I haven’t had them since sometime last summer. We used to get them all the time when I was growing up and I still to this day insist on dipping them in honey mustard!

Ugh, I was totally drooling over those butternut fries the other day…I may just have to go to the store this weekend and buy me a squash…although there will be no super bowling for me this year. Bad planner, Heather! Guess I’ll just catch up on all the commercials online on Monday like I did last year! 🙂

Tasha @ Dine & Dash

I need that cinnamon chai apple pie tea asap!
