I’ve had a long day at work and still have some emails to answer when I settle in at home. I pick Sanai up from daycare and she’s begging to have candy and pizza for dinner. I pull into the driveway and I want nothing more than to plop down on the couch and have a glass of wine. But as soon as I walk through the door, babe is asking “So, what are we having for dinner?”
When’s the last time you had a fruit pizza? For a good majority of you, I’m going to guess never. Well, let’s change that. If you’re looking for a delicious plant based treat that is sweet, but not full of processed sugars, then look no further. This delicious fruit pizza will give you a new level of respect for a plant based diet.
Okay, so I didn’t actually have a girls night in Asia, but my girls night did have an Asian theme- that counts right? Maybe not, but a girl can dream. Anyway, I got my girlfriends together for a night of great food, delicious cocktails, lots of laughing, plenty of dancing, and, of course, juicy girl talk. We got a chance to let our hair down, catch up, and and have a good old fashioned girls night. I decided to host this one at my house, and being the “hostess with the mostest” that I am, I wanted it to be a perfect night for me and my girls.
I went on my normal bi weekly trip to the farmers market and my eyes almost fell out of my head when I saw that scallops were $9.99/lb. Yes, you read right, only $9.99/lb. I almost never buy scallops because they are usually overpriced (in my opinion), but this was a complete steal so I had to snag a pound. I’m so glad I did because this was one of the best meals I’ve made in a long time! Between the perfect sear on the scallops down to the delicious lemon garlic butter wine sauce I made, I was literally in foodie heaven.
A few days ago I was in the mood for a delicious pizza, but no pizza place had exactly what I wanted: sauteed mushrooms and caramelized onions. Mmmmm. Just thinking about it makes me hungry. I knew exactly what taste I was going for and I also knew that the only way to get that exact taste was if I made it myself. So I made a quick run to Publix to grab the ingredients, came home and created some yummy goodness.
For as long as I can remember, cheesecake has been my all time favorite dessert. I made my first one back in college and once I realized I could make them pretty good, I never stopped. I’ve made all kinds from classic, to strawberry, to Oreo, to pumpkin spice, to banana Nutella. I mean seriously, the options are tremendous.
This weekend while planning for dinner, I got a craving for some chicken parmesan. I hadn’t made it in a while and I knew that Richard would love it, so chicken parm was on the menu! I’ve made it a few different times in the past and it always turned out yummy, but this time I was adding a secret ingredient that would take it to a new level… heavy cream!
I’ve been wanting to make buffalo cauliflower for a while now after seeing one of my favorite YouTuber’s whip it up on her channel. Well last month I actually had buffalo cauliflower at a restaurant here in Atlanta and it was amazing! After that, I knew I had to make it!
Okay…seriously, can you believe I made these amazing guilt free muffins with NO flour and NO sugar?! If that doesn’t amaze you, then how about this: I mixed all of the ingredients together in a blender. Not a hand mixer, not the fancy Kitchen Aide stand alone mixer, but a blender! I think that in itself deserves a high five!!
Last night, Richard and I couldn’t decide what we wanted for dinner, per usual. He suggested spaghetti, I said no. I though that lasagna would suffice, but he said no. So we were back at square one. I hopped on Pinterest for some inspo and the first thing that popped up were stuffed peppers. We both said “hell yeah!” and then this happened.
