Peanut Butter & Honey Parfait with Greek Gods

When I was a kid, my favorite lunch was not peanut butter and jelly, but peanut butter and honey sandwich with bananas. It is sooo good! As I got older, it definitely became one of my guilty pleasures where I would allow myself to have one every once in a while. It is truly sinful and amazingly nostalgia.

My need for breakfast is strong with this one and I am always looking for some healthy options to get me through the day feeling good. However, I recently discovered a beautiful, beautiful way of fulfilling my need for my childhood favorite food, without any guilt what-so-ever.

Cracked Pepper & Bacon Deviled Eggs

Bacon Deviled Eggs

I love deviled eggs. And I thought what do I love when I eat eggs? Bacon of course, so they seem to go hand-in-hand. With Easter being this weekend, this is a perfect recipe to serve, or to make after your kids find all those hidden Easter eggs.

I love the eggs standing up. I think they look prettier, and not so regular looking and mixes it up a bit. But it is totally up to you.

Skinny Coffee Cake – Half the Fat & Calories

Low-Fat Coffee Cake 3

Hi Everyone! My name is Stephanie and I blog over at Eat. Drink. Love. I’m so excited to be a contributor to My Cooking Spot!

One of my favorite parts about blogging is that I love the challenge of taking a recipe that would normally be considered to be unhealthy and lightening it up! Today I am sharing my low-fat coffee cake recipe with you. The typical slice of coffee cake can run anywhere between 400-500 calories and can have over 20 grams of fat! My version contains just 225 calories and 7.9 grams of fat for a generous slice!

One of my favorite parts of coffee cake is the crumb topping, but that crumb topping will cost you a lot of calories. I wanted to try to create a version that still gave me that cinnamon sugar flavor without having to do a crumb topping, so instead I did a swirl of cinnamon sugar inside the cake, and really, I didn’t even miss the crumb topping! I baked mine up in a bundt pan and then dusted the top with some additional cinnamon and sugar. This cake is perfect to serve for guests, or in my case, co-workers!
