I do this thing when I’m filled to the brim with tasks and opportunities and responsibilities and stresses…. I add more. I really just pile it on. I somehow think that adding new responsibilities and stresses will erase the ones I’ve already loaded on my shoulders.
It’s illogical. It’s a terrible idea. It’s downright crazytown.
I’m in Crazytown and I’m about to move into Lost My Marblesville. Someone please send a straight jacket.
In related news, I’ve decided to move into a loft in downtown Los Angeles. I’m driving to Seattle in a Uhaul next week with my little sister… pray for us. Aaaand I’m teaching my first cooking class in Sonoma this weekend!
More on all of these things soon. For now… here’s what I’m stress eating.. no joke.
Mini Chocolate Dipped Bananas rolled in crushed honey roasted peanuts. If you really commit to your stress… I mean, really just get in there and wallow in it… I’m sure you can down a cool seven bananas in no time. Just. Like. Me.
Half spongy souffle cake, half warm pudding, all lemony goodness. Lemon Souffle Cake. Maybe I ate this whole souffle right out of the pie pan. Maybe. Maybe not. But… yea, definitely. That totally happened.
I have bathed in this Buttermilk Ranch Dressing.
I like to eat brownies right out of the freezer. Dense, cold chocolate cake with melty frozen marshmallows? Yea… I never said I was normal. S’mores Brownies. Friends for life.
Giant Vanilla Sugar Cookies. There’s nothing like a cup of tea and a cookie the size of your face to wash your troubles away. Dreamy.
Note: Am I encouraging emotional overeating with this post? No. Yes… No. Well… maybe a little. I’m half kidding, half overcommitted and definitely stuffing cookies in my face at every opportunity. That’s just the honest truth. I hope you can handle it.
Hope you enjoyed our quasi sunny Seattle weather this past week. :)
Do I have to be stressed to eat all of those things? Because I’m feeling pretty calm right now, but I too want to eat that entire lemon souffle cake… and the brownies, and bananas… etc.
I just made these for dinner, they are amazing!
I absolutely love these recipes and look heavenly! Great complement to me..
Yipes, I hope you’ve found your marbles by now. In the meantime, I’m certain you have some yummies to nosh.
PS: The downtown LA public library *rocks my socks.* Lucky you!

YUM I made these cookies on the weekend and they were a big hit…. thanx :)
good luck with all the craziness :D
Remember when the side of the U-Hauls used to say “Adventures in Moving”?? Drive safe and enjoy the journey with your sister. You will talk about these memories for the rest of your lives.

Love it! Sometimes you just need a comfort food to savor, enjoy, and let your mind come to peace. The brownies looks like they would be my cup of tea :)

Perfect – I’m catering a wedding for 150 people at my house in April, how many chocolate covered bananas does that earn me?

I totally had a week of over eating last week. Literally anything that consisted of chocolate or sugar was gobbled up by me. I completely felt like cookie monster.
This week Im hoping to redeem myself and not touch anything that begins with C-H-O-C.
Good luck with the move and the class :-)
Hang in there, Joy! You reminded me how much I’ve wanted to make those choc dipped bananas. MY boyfriend votes for me to make the smore brownies however.
This post really made me laugh! I felt like you were writing about my life!
On behalf of the residents of Lost My Marblesville, we welcome you and your yummy stress inspired treats! :) Made the ranch dressing and chocolate dipped bananas tonight, they were a big hit. Thanks Joy and good luck with the crazy days ahead!
