It's been a while since I've tagged along with The Chef while he's on assignment .. traveling around Iowa .. helping companies detect problems with the widgets they make. I'm forever surprised & impressed with the cool things he gets to work on

“Wait .. they make bowling pins .. where?”

“That company is turning landfill waste into .. what?”

Me? It's a great excuse to spend time with him .. and discover small town cafes & coffee shops along the way

But this trip? This trip is special .. I'm going home

Growing up .. Spirit Lake/Okoboji wasn't far from our family's farm .. and became a place filled with memories of lazy summer days at our cottage on the water. It was everything a kid could hope for .. water skiing for hours .. homemade ice cream churned by hand .. passing a hot & humid afternoon on the porch with a good book

Not to mention a few tasty treats .. like sopaipillas at Mrs Lady's

(!!)

Of course .. a few snacks are fun to take along

These 2 bite brownies are great .. simple to make .. with a short list of ingredients .. they're soft & chewy .. without being overly sweet .. and the perfect size for snacking

They're made with hemp hearts .. peanut butter .. dates & honey add sweetness .. along with a chocolate powder of choice. I'm partial to carob powder or unsweetened cocoa .. though protein powder is a great alternative for those who are looking for ways to add it in

Food for thought .. forming them into balls is the easiest .. though flatter shapes take up a bit less room in the fridge or freezer

Enjoy!
