winston’s peanut butter projector cups [creamy peanut butter and banana cups]


Ah yes, Winston. The big furry scientist from Overwatch! If you’ve checked out Overwatch’s Recall animated short, you’ll get some backstory about the big guy.


He’s a brilliant scientist, a great leader, and more importantly, a HUGE fan of peanut butter! I obviously had to make some sort of peanut-butter infused dish, so I attempted to recreate his iconic barrier projector in food form!

I won’t lie… When I was making this recipe, I ended up eating A LOT of the ingredients. The filling, which is comprised of greek yogurt, protein powder and peanut butter, is DELICIOUS. I would also recommend using it to frost cupcakes, brownies, cakes, etc. It is amazing!



  1. 1 scoop of Peanut Butter Quest Protein Powder
  2. 2 Banana Nut Muffin Quest Bars
  3. 2 tablespoon of peanut butter
  4. 1 cup of greek yogurt
  5. 2 teaspoons of stevia
  6. 1/2 of a banana
  7. 3 squares of dark chocolate
  8. white chocolate chips


This recipe takes about 15 minutes to make. This makes 2 servings.

Each serving contains: 36g of Protein, 19g of Fat, and 12g of Net Carbs


  1. Unwrap your banana nut muffin bars and cut each bar in half.
  2. Take a ramekin and smash each bar into the shape of the ramekin.
  3. Take the other halves and roll them out with a rolling pin. You’ll want to then press those parts against the sides of the ramekin.
  4. Pop these ramekins into the fridge for about 5 minutes.


  1. In a large bowl, whip together your greek yogurt, protein powder, and sweetener.
  2. Gently fold in your peanut butter. Try not to eat all of the filling. 😉


  1. Remove your ramekins from the fridge. Using a butter knife, gently remove your cup crusts from the mold. At this point, I recommend dusting the bottom of the cups with protein powder so they won’t stick to your plates.
  2. Slowly scoop the peanut butter filling into each cup. You’ll want to overfill them to make the dome shape.
  3. Using a baking spatula, smooth out the filling to create a dome shape.
  4. Create a chocolate Winston by melting your dark chocolate and white chocolate. You can do this by putting each type of chocolate into a small bowl and microwaving it for about 30 seconds — you’ll want to stop every 10 seconds to stir the chocolate.
  5. Once you have your melted chocolates, print out a picture of Winston’s emblem. Place a piece of wax paper over the emblem. Use your white chocolate to outline his glasses, mouth, and nose. Let that set for about 20 seconds. Then, cover the entire thing with dark chocolate to fill out the rest of his face. Let that chill in the fridge for about 1 minute.
  6. Remove the chocolate Winston face and place it on top of the dome. Then, cut banana slices and decorate the top.
  7. Eat!



And there you have it, hero! Now you have this super protein packed treat that will keep you going throughout the day. :)

baked fish [breaded bream]


I’m sure its no surprise to anyone that I’m still freakishly obsessed with Stardew Valley. It’s such a peaceful relaxing game and it definitely helps cleanse the salt left by other games.

However, that doesn’t mean Stardew Valley has been without frustrating for me! When I first started, I could NOT for the life of me understand fishing… It was such a simple concept, but for whatever reason, my brain just went into full derp mode whenever I started fishing.


Eventually, after much struggling and rambling at my computer screen, it finally clicked in my head. That’s when I decided to become the fisher-woman of Pelican Town! Willy’s gonna be so proud!

Much to the dismay of my poor farm husband Sebastian, I began storing all of my catch in a storage chest in the kitchen because the fridge was full of important things such as wheat and quartz. This is also because I’m scared to accidentally turn any of my future legendary fish catches into sashimi again… RIP ANGLER, MARCH 8th 2016 – MARCH 8th 2016.


Why’s it smell so bad in here…? It’s totally not that un-refrigerated box of fish in the kitchen…

Since I’ve become the self-proclaimed fisher-woman of Pelican Town, I decided I just had to make another fish dish.

Dish o’ The Sea was a good start, but it was time to up my fish cooking skills by roasting a whole fish.


I’m a terrible fisher in real life, so I headed to my local fish monger. I’m not in an area of the US where Sunfish is a common, and fresh water Bream is difficult to get since it’s a fish native to Europe. However, I substituted it with its cousin-by-name, the Sea Bream!



  1. salt
  2. pepper
  3. 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  4. 1/4 cup of flour
  5. whole bream, gutted and fins removed
  6. fresh parsley
  7. fresh dill
  8. 4 – 5 sprigs fresh majoram, stems removed
  9. 3-5 cloves of garlic
  10. 1 shallot
  11. 1 lemon (2 if you plan on adding a lemon decoration for plating)
  12. dandelion greens


Total prep time for this dish is about 20 minutes. Cook time is ~35 minutes. This makes about 2 servings.


  1. Roughly chop your garlic and shallots.
  2. Season your bream with salt and pepper. Make sure to rub the seasoning inside the empty cavity.
  3. Stuff the bream with 1/2 of your dill, parsley and majoram. Add in your garlic and your shallots. Add in 2 lemon slices.
  4. Coat your bream with a light dusting of flour.


  1. Place your remaining herbs on in a large baking dish.
  2. Place your bream on top of the herbs.
  3. Carefully drizzle the olive oil over the bream.
  4. OPTIONAL: Add two lemons on top of the bream.


  1. Preheat your oven to 375° F. Bake the fish for about 30 minutes.
  2. Remove the lemons and broil for 5 minutes at broil at 500° F. This is to make the breading extra crispy!
  3. While the bream is baking, steam or lightly boil your dandelion greens. Season with salt, pepper and lemon.
  4. Plate the dandelion greens first. Then place your freshly baked bream on top of the greens. OPTIONAL: Add two lemon halves to replicate the in-game design.
  5. Eat!
