Cantaloupe Mozzarella Prosciutto Skewers



Cantaloupe is one of my favorite fruits. That might be because it’s known as a “beauty fruit”. No it’s not a beauty to look at, but it’s packed with beta-carotene which makes skin beautiful! And who doesn’t love beautiful skin especially when you get to eat delicious fruit to go along with it!

This recipe for a cool, light summer appetizer doesn’t get much fancier – prosciutto, basil leaves, sticks = fancy. But with your flowing skin you feel fancy so it all works out in the end right?

Skillet Alfredo

The pioneer woman just has the best recipes, you guys. Especially for days when you just don’t care what the calorie count is. Really, does she make anything that’s not delicious? The answer is no.

In my house, we have a rule that if I cook then my husband cleans. He gets the easy end of the deal with this meal because it only uses one skillet. He begs to differ because he has to scrub. His words, of course, not mine. He’s such a man. But he’s a good one and he’s nice to look at so I’ll keep him.

The recipe seems complicated when at first read, but it’s quite easy. So I guess, it’s pretty easy for both of us. But let’s not tell my husband that, ok? Ok!

Snickerdoodle Muffins


These muffins should seriously be named “Crack Muffins” since they are so addicting. I’m not kidding, they are so good that my husband told me several times to put these on my blog after eating a couple. If you like to get your hands dirty while you bake, these are definitely the muffins for you. You scoop the batter out with an ice cream scoop, small measuring cup, or your hands and place it in a bowl filled with cinnamon sugar. The messy part is covering the batter entirely with cinnamon sugar and putting it in the cupcake liners. Your hands will get a little messy, but it’s so worth it!

Skinny Cheesecake Dip



When you’re eating healthy during the day . . . and wine is off-limits during the week . . . you need something to take the edge off. You just need something that feels bad for you. But it can’t actually be bad for you.

Enter: Skinny Cheesecake Dip. I’m okay with having this in my refrigerator waiting for me when I need something sweet. It’s no-bake, it comes together in minutes, and you can make it sugar-free or low-fat, deepening on your preference.

Plus? It’s cheesecake and it’s dip. Dip means you can eat as much as you want in one sitting, right? Endless cheesecake!?!?

Look at how fluffy that is? Don’t you want to just get some strawberries to dip?? Or just your finger?
