Got to Love This!

Standard

I love the blog world. I love Pinterest. Negative comments have been made that Pinterest is a fantasy world and that people will never actually use what the pin. What?!? I beg to differ.

Yes it is bread. Blueberry bread nonetheless, but the party doesn’t stop there! This bread has avocado, zucchini and a banana in it, on top of the blueberries!! Oh, and it is pretty low in sugar too!! Best part? I have to give you two parts. It tastes fabulous and there is only 107 calories a slice! I was leery when I first made it because sometime I don’t feel like bread is exactly filling. Not this bread. In fact it is super dense and heavy. I had two pieces I was carrying and felt slightly guilty until I remembered what all was in it!

I followed the recipe for this recipe exactly as it was written, with the exception of the blueberries. I’m not sure what the actual serving size was for the carton of blueberries I have in the picture above but I threw them all in. I finished ever last piece of the first loaf (it was actually breakfast and lunch one day). Just made a second loaf yesterday.
My only recommendation is to make sure you cook it through. I had to adjust my rack in the oven because it was cooked nicely on the top but not quiet done on the inside. After moving it down it turned out perfect!

Is that Stir-Fry?

Standard

The other day I went over to visit a dear friend of mine. She told me she was making stir-fry and asked if I wanted some. I opted out since I had just ate dinner. (Although that didn’t stop me from indulging in a spoonful…or two…of crunchy Biscoff!) When she plated her meal, it looked amazing! However it looked a little different from my typical stir-fry, no rice?? And then I thought about it and said to myself…genius!
Naturally, the next day at the grocery store I got all the ingredients to make this dish right away!

I Have Issues…

If anyone ever asked me was my favorite meal was…I might have a hard time answering. However I could easily say I love appetizers! Anything, including deserts that come in small servings are just so much fun to me. Also when you say, “I had five tacos for dinner,” you can say it without much shame when they are bite size!! You still might have a hint of remorse however if we are taking about cheesecake…or maybe you don’t. 🙂
I have made so many meals lately with these little wonton wrappers and I still haven’t made it though the entire pack! Although my husband did eat an entire cookie sheet full of these little tacos yesterday…. Continue Reading For Recipe

Twice Baked Cauliflower

Standard

Sometimes people think of cauliflower as a replacement for potatoes or pasta in dishes. Although that is true, I think the cauliflower in this dish is no alternative or second option. I think it is the highlight of what makes this dish. So. Darn. Good.
