All Dressed Up

Your salad that is! It's true that I post some deliciously decadent recipes but for the most part I'm a really healthy eater. I live for a good salad and eat a ton of them through the week. A lot of times a fatty, high calorie salad dressing will ruin your diet or just plans of eating healthy. Lately, I've been making my own low calorie dressings. They are so good and don't have any unnessesary junk in them. All of these are super fast. Which I need with an almost six month old. Anything that's easy and fast I'm on board. I got some mason jars at the dollar store that you can throw the ingredients in and just shake. 


Here are three of my current favorite low calorie salad dressings: 


My favorite? Honey Mustard! Yum!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!


Scrumptious Stacks

By now I'm sure you know I like things that are fancy, fast, and delicious. This is absolutely all of those things. One of the best parts about this recipe is that it's very versitile. It would work for Brunch, a dinner party, or just dinner for two as a snazzy appetizer. 

I'm very attracted to stack recipes. I must love a tower formation, haha. So this is a take on the classic Caprese Salad. Its so simple but definitely a crowd pleaser. 

What you need per one person:

fresh mozzarella ball

a big red tomato

 fresh basil


Bread and fry your tomatoes with extra virgin olive oil. 


You'll have to move fairly quickly to serve these tasty dishes. Fry the tomatoes for about three-five minutes on each side. Use your best judgment. Once they are done, place on a paper towel to get rid of excess oil. 

Then, just stack with tomato, cheese, tomato cheese. Top with fresh Basil and then drizzle with Balsamic. It's the perfect dish. Trust me on that one.  


Hoping your Hump Day is easy, fast, and full of delicious food.  


A Chocolate Treat

In my opinion, the month of February is all about decadence. And what's more decadent than chocolate? So just for today lets throw our diets out the window and indulge a little with some chocolate and wine. When it comes to cooking and baking it's absolutely a form of therapy for me. Being in the kitchen is one of my favorite places, put a glass of wine in my hand and I may never leave. 


If you're looking for something delicious to make this Valentine's Day I've got you covered with this super easy and fun Chocolate Pie.  

Heart Chocolate Pie

2/3 evaporated milk
1/2 package chocolate chips
3 tbsp butter
1 cup sugar
2 tbsp flour
2 eggs
2 tsp vanillla extract
3/4 tsp salt
2 pre-made pie crusts

Preheat the oven to 375. Press one of your pie crusts into a greased pie pan.

and microwave the first three ingredients for about 1 1/2 minutes. Make sure to whisk every now and then to prevent it from getting chunky.

Whisk sugar and flour into chocolate mixture, then add the eggs one at a time, then add vanilla and salt. Pour into pie shell.

Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes and if you're adding hearts add them here and put back in the oven for another 20 minutes.

For the hearts: get your second pie crust and simply use heart shaped cookie cutters and place randomly.

Enjoy and Happy February!
