…goodbye to cupcakes anyway, and hello healthy cookbooks!
Well, not until I make cupcakes for work first!
Okay…I am good on sweets now. At least until February, when of course I have to bake plate after plate of Valentine treats! But for now my family and I are all making healthy choices!
I pulled out The Skinnytaste Cookbook again. I used this many times in 2015 but put away as October came around and I was in the baking/sweets/candy mode.
January always brings about a desire to make changes for the better. So instead of eating at my favorite Mexican restaurant (for the millionth time in last 2 months) I stayed home and made the Buttermilk Oven “Fried” Chicken. I made this a few times last year and my family really liked it. This time I followed the recipe in full (I usually take short cuts) and the chicken was so moist and was just enough with my sweet potato. Give this a try if you want great flavor, fewer calories, and don’t want to feel as if you are giving up on taste.
Recipe for Chicken is here on my blog as well as cupcakes. Here are links to both.
(My husband took this pic…teasing me that this is his new beer/food blog! He thinks he is so funny!) Not bad for a first try!! 🙂
