Five Easy No Bake Recipes

Five Easy No Bake Recipes


If you put on work out pants and a work out top and your brand new zig tennis shoes that color coordinate with the side table project from yesterday…..then finish it off with a pony tail and drive to Wal-Mart….

….does that count?

Is it almost like working out?


I mean….you’re half way there.

Isn’t it close enough?

I’m parking my car in the back lot….speed walking to the front of the store….power pushing a cart…

….and calling it a day. 🙂

Happy almost-working-out Fourth of July to you….

…here’s a few easy no bake recipes to celebrate.

    Walmart is a BIG store- I think it counts! haha Happy 4th!

  5. Happy Independence Day! So funny! Every time I spend two hours at Walmart I do consider it a workout! I even tell my husband I worked out today! And “power pushing the cart”…I have a mantra while pushing, “I’m not tired, I’m getting stronger and stronger! ” And don’t forget to count loading and unloading all the groceries. That counts, too! Yesterday I had a fine workout at Costco buying all my Fourth of July provisions. Sadly, the mouthwatering apple strudel sprinkled with sugar I bought will set me back a bit! Cheers for a star spangled day!

  6. Hi KariAnne,
    I love your website and your little stories get me every time!
    I wrote a little story too, about the baby chicks that hatched on my pool deck. It’s quite a tale! Come and check it out if you get a chance.

  7. Sounds like my kind of workout! LOL! I’ll take the desserts though!

  8. Happy Fourth of July! I tried to “power walk” through Walmart last night. It was late, after I picked the “Sandwich Artist” up from work. Those workers trying to stock shelves looked like they wanted me to power walk out of the way and out the front door!

    I am going to try that Cherry Cheesecake!

  9. I personally think that shopping is an Olympic sport….so you can consider that exercise! Happy 4th!! 😉

  10. I like your workout. I think I can handle that. But first I need to buy a pair of sneakers …


    Happy 4th of July to you and your family!

  11. You had me at easy, then again at no-bake! These all look delish, Happy 4th of July friend!!

    xo, Tanya

  12. Great recipes! Forwarded your link to 3 of my buddies! Happy 4th!

  13. Happy Fourth!!~~Angela

  14. Happy Independence Day to you and your family. My strawberries in my refrigerator got wind of that delicious beverage and yell out to be a smoothie. My treadmill heard the words “power walking” and beeped me to get on. I thought today was a “Freedom Day!”

  15. My latest recipe is not ‘No Bake” but it has Tequila in it! A most fabulous Tequila Lime Bar that is to die for. I would know, I finished off a pan already. And I am now making another to take to a gathering tomorrow night. I will be everyone’s new BFF!
    I cleaned 2 big houses, and 3 condos yesterday, that is my work out and better yet, I worked off all those Lime bars.

  16. MMMMMMMMMMMMMM boy do those yummies look tasty – and with this heat and humidity the NO BAKE vibe works out perfectly.

    Thanks for the recipes and ideas.

    Have a fun lazy day – I got up early and got all my work done and hubs is making shish kabobs as we speak. Life is good. I plan on doing next to nothing today and lovin’ it.


  17. Glad you went to Walmart for your workout. Indeed it is everyday for me! Happy 4th my dear friend!

  18. YUM… but I think I’ll need a few workouts after these (hehehe… me doing a workout)!!! Hope you had a great 4th!

  21. No bake is the best!…loved seeing the recap of your recipes!…hope you had a great 4th!

  22. No bake desserts are the best thing ever! I made a no bake Jello Cheesecake Patriotic Flag the Sunday before 4th of July…to test it out. It was sooo good, I had to make 2 of them for the holiday.

  23. YUM! No bake is the way to when it is 90 degrees out, looks delicious!
