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!!
I smile as I look at this Cherry Pie. We made this pie for Father’s Day…we were so ready to get it in the oven that our rows of crust did not turn out quite like we had planned. But it was still a sweet and delicious treat and was worth every calorie.
I thought of our family and how things don’t always turn out perfect. Sometimes we don’t look like a family that has it all together but in the end there is laughter, love and a bond that we wouldn’t trade for anything! Our family is worth every calorie!! 🙂
Thank you Sally’s Baking Addition for this recipe! I love all your pies and cookies!!! They always turn out so tasty!
Just a “sweet” extra for you, I am learning the more we do for ourselves, the more we can offer our family. I am going through an amazing book and study with friends called Emotionally Spiritually Healthy. Here is what the book looks like and the day to day reading. If you are looking for something to know yourself better and grow, give this book a try. I think you will really enjoy it and learn a little along the way!
I was recently challenged by Simply Homemade by Paula to the 3-Day Quote Challenge. Thank you Paula! I love her blog! Go check it out.
My first “quote” is actually a verse found in Psalm 34:8. I have used this verse many times when taking baked treats to someone special. I also use this as a creative way to share a verse from the Bible to someone who may need to be encouraged that day. I hope it encourages you.
I even had this verse painted on a wall in my kitchen to remind me of God’s goodness in my life. I think it is a great verse as well as a challenge. A challenge to give God a try and see that He is good!
If you accept this 3-day challenge, post 1-3 quotes for 3 consecutive days, nominating 3 fellow bloggers to do the same.
I am nominating the following bloggers today to this challenge.
Reading to my little girls each night in bed is something I still miss to this day. I miss hearing them beg for one more book or one more song or one more prayer. Trace Adkins hit the nail on the head when he sang “You’re gonna miss this”. My eyes well up with tears each time I hear it…
You’re gonna miss this
You’re gonna want this back
You’re gonna wish these days hadn’t gone by so fast
These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you’re gonna miss this
Today my girls did many things to make my day special. One of the sweetest things was to give me a book I read to them as a child. Each of my girls picked out the book that reminded them of me when they were young. They wrote a note inside and told me why this book was special to them and the memories they have of me reading it to them when they were young. That touched my heart!
They also made me lunch so I could put it on my blog! They were so thoughtful! They made a delicious healthy lunch.
I love that these simple ingredients can turn into something so tasty!
A healthy dose of avocado, egg, lime, whole grain bread and a dash of salsa
I enjoy the mornings that I do not have to be somewhere early. My daughter and I were able to actually have breakfast together. That doesn’t happen very often these days.
I searched quite a few recipes for this breakfast delight. While it is pretty basic, I wanted to see what ingredients people were using to make it stand out. I find that sometimes the easiest thing to do is just do what you like. Here are the ingredients I used this morning. You can’t go wrong with this one! It was an energizing way to start my day! Here is the recipe. Sunny Side Up Egg and Avocado Sandwich
I have only posted my photos and stories of trial and error from my own experiences on my website. But I saw these lovely Frittatas and wanted to repost here. I am assigning my daughter the job of making these and will post our pics after. Even if you don’t love eggs, these just look delicious!
The recipe I want to share today is frittata muffins. Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette or crustless quiche.Frittata muffins are pretty easy to make. You just will up the muffin cups with eggs, milk and whatever vegetable and cheese you prefer. Frittata is one of those recipes that you can hardly call as recipe, as you can use what you have one hand ( although there is a specific ration eggs to vegetables). In this recipe I used sautéed spinach, dried tomatoes and goat cheese frittata muffins. These turned out even better than I expected.
Frittata muffins makes the perfect dish to bring along to a picnic , since they are just as good warm as they are cold. Making frittata muffins requires much the same effort as making an omelette or scrambled eggs, but somehow the end result look fancier.I have just been making frittata muffins for…
This has been the week of M&Ms for me. I have made M&M cookies, M&M chocolate covered peanut clusters and tried M&M Saltine Toffee for the first time. Since I purchased a huge bag of pastel colored M&Ms, I tried to make sure and use them all by Easter!
I used these wonderful little chocolates in anything I could think of and also ate a few handfuls along the way!
I did not leave the saltines and toffee in the oven quite long enough. This was still very tasty, but next time I will leave in for the full 8 minutes as the recipe calls for! I was not patient enough. What can I say, I was so hungry!
Vanilla is my signature flavor! In my family I am the only one who wants white cake and vanilla buttercream icing for their birthday. I secretly only want vanilla at Amy’s Ice-Cream or Lick Ice-Cream when there is obviously so many unique varieties and flavors to choose from.
Most people crave chocolate. I crave vanilla. Sometimes I just need a piece of white cake. The kind that you taste at your friend’s wedding. I love biting into a moist cake with the strong flavor of vanilla and just the right amount of icing. YUM!
Below is a picture of a white cake with vanilla buttercream icing. I found this recipe on Pinterest. I had to make it because it said it was “the best white cake recipe” ever!
While this cake was good, it was not quite what I was looking for. So I will continue to bake-on and let you know when I have found and perfected that one and only “White Cake”!
I love making lemon cakes and cookies in the summer, but when I saw a recipe for Lemon Blueberry cake today, I just had to make it! It seems I am baking through Sally’s Baking Addiction Blog/Cookbook lately. I love all the details she gives not only in her actual recipe but in her photos as well. Even an amateur like me can follow along! If I can do it, you can do it!
