Apple Cinnamon Beignets

Being a California girl, I have often fantasized about, though never tasted, apple cider doughnuts from apple farms on the East Coast. Inspired by these delicious-sounding morsels, I whipped up a batch of apple cinnamon beignets, studded with diced fresh apple that goes wonderfully soft during cooking, warm cinnamon and nutty brown butter. Although these beignets were fantastic with an ample dusting of...

Hungarian Langos

Lángos is a deep fried flat bread that is served warm and usually topped with sour cream and grated cheese or garlic butter (a fabulous combination, if you ask me!) Traditonally, this dish was made from leftover bread dough and baked in a brick oven. Inspired by an old family recipe, this particular version is stuffed with sheep milk cheese and herbs (in other words: perfection). For more recipes, be sure to check out my blog...

Low Fat Hummus #2: Roasted Red Pepper

Hummus is one of those things that you can eat and eat and eat. And eat and eat and eat. And then you look up, an hour in to your favorite Housewives franchise and boom. 500 calories down the drain. So instead of drowning myself in hummus sorrows, I make the low fat variety. Normally I tackle the cilantro and lime variety from our last post because that's SO my personal flavor profile, but every now and then I spice it up with some roasted red...

Low Fat Hummus: Cilantro, Lime & Jalapeno

I've mentioned before that my husband semi-follows a strict Vegan, No Oil diet. He does it for health reasons and to avoid any and all heart disease because of the prevalence of said disease on both sides of his family.

This one is perfect as a festive dip, a spread on sandwiches or a topping for guacamole. And it's...

Light Caramel Popcorn

I was on a flight from LA to Boston (Virgin America which if you haven't flown, ummm...it's awesome) and they gave me a bag of caramel popcorn. And the whole damn bag was only 100 calories. The BIG bag at that. So thus began my obsession with caramel popcorn. Which I may or may not have every day with my soy mocha. So here is my skinny gift of goodness. Caramel Popcorn without any guilt at all. Yum. 1 bag 100 calorie popcorn 1/8...

Skinny Vanilla Soy Mocha

Like clockwork, come 3:00 every afternoon my sweet tooth kicks in and I find myself scrounging for something sweet. And caffeinated. More often than not, I'm left with a sad little handful of chocolate chips in an attempt to curb said craving. So when Abby introduced me to this crazy easy to make little chocolate number, the inner sugar-a-holic within me perked up. Plus, I figured that saving $4 every day by making it instead of starbucksing it was worth every last penny. 4 ounces...

Butternut Squash Crostata

If a recipe has Butternut Squash in the title, you can pretty much bank on me cooking it, eating it & licking my plate embarassingly clean. And this one from Kathryn of Dramatic Pancake just happens to layer in pancetta and fontina cheese, so you KNOW I've already made it. Eaten it. And licked my plate embarassingly clean. Now it's your turn. Run, don't walk. Butternut Squash, Broccolini and Pancetta Crostata with Fontina...
