Chicken Wrapped in Bacon – A Childhood Favorite

Tweet When I was old enough to cook on my own, this was one of my go to meals. My mom used to make it and I was completely obsessed. I called it “Chicken Wrapped in Bacon w/ Cream Cheese & Chives”. I actually had a photo of my friend and I with a sign […]

Boozy Apple Pear Tart

Tweet I was always on the fence with Martha Stewart (sorry all you Martha fans!). I just wasn’t convinced how amazing she was, well besides absolutely loving her paint pallets. But after making these beauties last night, I’m pretty convinced that Martha is the pie queen! Every bite was an “Oh my God, this is so […]

Blueberry Crumb Cups

Tweet Right now, looking at these photos, I wish I hadn’t eaten all of these last week. I want more. They’re so easy to pop in your mouth, bite size or maybe 2 bites (for me) of delicious crumbly cake and gooey blueberry filling. And the part that I thought was great was how much tastier they […]

Loaded Baked Potato Dip

Tweet I gotta say, these football weekends are really killing my attempt at eating somewhat healthy. I did use reduced fat and 1/3 less fat ingredients so you could argue that these are “healthier”. But what’s an amazing dip without bacon?! Every bite is well worth the calories. As a warning I’ve added extra Tabasco, […]

Caramel Apple Pie Cupcakes!

Tweet Yes I said it – pie in a cupcake. Another brilliant idea I got from Pillsbury! Of course I didn’t follow their directions exactly, or use their spice cake mix for the cupcakes but the idea was just too good to pass up. Who wouldn’t want pie at the bottom of their cupcake? Crust & […]

Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast

Tweet Well hello not so nice weather. I’d like you to revert to your 80 something degree temperatures please! Labor Day always marks the beginning of school, end of summer and terrible luck getting a cab in the morning for me. I love, love, love the Summer heat (bring it on!) but there is something about […]

Tweet Last week I had mentioned that the fam was coming up for the weekend. Unfortunately that didn’t happen but it was such a nice day on Saturday that we decided to have a couple people over anyway. Since it was so last minute I was trying to find some food to throw together to […]

Homemade “Lower Calorie” Gnocchi w/ a Cherry Tomato White Wine Sauce

Tweet For those of you who don’t know, I started “dieting” a little over a year ago. I say “dieting” with quotations because well, it’s pretty much become how I live now instead of a short term weight loss fix. In this “diet” I’ve tried to cut down on my carb intake…hardest thing to do. […]

Strawberries & Cream Granita

Tweet This weekend was Hot, Hot, Hot in the city! I don’t know if you guys were out & about but for me even walking down the street was a task. Although it did help brighten my tan a bit ;). I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this before today but my apartment has […]

It’s Melon Season – Why You Should Eat Up! Plus Fruit Kabobs & Fluffy Dip

Tweet Not too long ago I mentioned my love of watermelon but I’m also a huge fan of cantaloupe & honeydews. I love when they’re sweet & overly juicy, they’re perfect snacks for those on a diet & even for those who aren’t! Melons provide a good source of potassium and vitamin C.  Like many other fruits, they […]
