Easy Plum Tart
Here is easy, peasy, fool-proof dessert, made with just four ingredients. You can easily swap the plums for apples, pears, or apricots, and it would be just as good. Sure, pie crust is involved, but it's very thin, and no extra butter is added to the recipe. Add a nice scoop of low-fat vanilla ice cream or fro-yo while it's still warm, and you're golden.
Raspberry White Chocolate Chip Waffles
Played with my waffle recipe this morning by adding some fresh raspberries and white chocolate chips that I had leftover from the Valentine's Day muffins I baked for the girls at work -- and what a great idea it was! I love the bite of the raspberry seeds and the intense flavor that develops when they cook on the waffle iron.
Sweet Potato Skins
Baked with Gorgonzola cheese and homemade bacon bits... it's a party in your mouth... enough said!
Dark Coco Brownies
Okay, so you can totally taste the healthy in these, but in a delicious, I-don't-feel-too-bad-about-eating-these kinda way. They are 100% whole wheat and made with coconut oil, one of my favorite ingredients.
Coconut Chicken & Banana Waffles
It wasn't until recently that I first tried Chicken & Waffles, and O-M-G, did I fall in love. I didn't think it could be easily made at home, much less made healthy. Wrong! Here is a fit twist on the Southern fave.
Holy Prosciutto! Panino
This sandwich is crazy good, and perfect for entertaining. I made these the day I got my Maggie. Paired with mimosas, it was the perfect ladies lunch. And, it's not as sinful as it tastes! *Italian lesson inside.
Spread lightly on whole grain breads, bagels, muffins, waffles, arepas, or anywhere else you love butter. Just add four tablespoons of light butter and 1 tablespoon of agave in a food processor, and process until smooth. Transfer to a butter dish and refrigerate. Butter is butter, so enjoy in moderation!
