Rice Krispie Treats!
I was a little late on July 4th posting…but better late than never, right?
My daughter, Claire, keeps finding recipes she wants to try. That seems to keeps us busy at the store and in the kitchen. While she has changed her mind from wanting to be a chef (at 11 years old) to now wanting to be an event planner…I love seeing her love for food and baking continue! Conversations, laughter and memories are made in the kitchen.
OLD GLORY PIE. Find recipe here. I changed the recipe a bit and used fresh cherries, strawberries and blueberries. YUM!
ZUCCHINI CRUSTED PIZZA
My daughter LOVES Pizza…so she is always sending me links to low calorie Pizza. She found this recipe for Zucchini Crusted Pizza and wanted to give it a try. I was a little skeptical but we ended up really liking the flavor and texture. In fact, my whole family enjoyed! Great idea Claire!
You can make this a little more low calorie by reducing the cheese and the marinara sauce. It will still be very tasty, satisfying and good for your waist line!!
Recipe is under On the Healthy Side at top of page. ENJOY!
..But the Best People Are!
Take a peek at our delightful Tea Party for a dear friend who is retiring…
Great Send off, Great Food, Great Book and Great Quotes.
I think this was a great way to spend the day since it is “Always Tea Time.”
“…Sometimes I have believed 6 impossible things before breakfast”
Pretzels are a must!
And of course you must have a backdrop!
“I can’t go back to yesterday,
I was a different person back then.”
“i’m not crazy…my reality is just different than yours.”
Thankful for friendships, creativity, food, fun, good books and great relationships!
Each of my daughters have something that is their signature sweet, something they can make at the drop of a hat and it always turns out delicious. My middle daughter’s signature sweet happens to be these lovely Cake Balls.
These are a bit time consuming and require many steps…but when you bite into one, they are well worth it! Check out my daughter’s recipe here. Cake Pops by Olivia Rhine
I think you will see they are well worth your time and energy. ENJOY!
Day 3 of the 3-Day Quote Challenge!
(sorry I did not keep the 3 consecutive days in a row for quotes…life got in the way, but here is my final quote)
There are so many amazing quotes that inspire us and challenge us to live better and become better people. However,since I wanted to have all my quotes about food, it was a bit limiting.
As I read this quote it makes me remember that food prepared with love just makes others feel good. It can inspire us, lift our spirits and turn a meeting into a party! Julia Child always got it right!
Enjoy your day!
