She Knows Dessert Roundup & What I Ate Wednesday

Pin It PIN IT!

Hi friends! Happy hump (giggle, I’m 12) day! Hope everyone’s day is moving wonderfully thus far (I mean, the day is still young!)! For those of you who sent me some good juju for Oscar’s appointment yesterday, I’m happy to report it went swimmingly!

Despite a little verbal reprehending for letting his hair become a mop, it was a quick trip. Now, thank god, we can get this e-work groomed!

I’m sort of breaking the mold of sharing just one recipe here because there are about 10,000 recipes I’m dying to share with you from work! As you know, I’m a recipe creator for She Knows and this month,  I’m assigned to desserts.

I know, rough life. In between creating these dishes and creating content for y’all, I just have’t had a chance to sit down and go over what I’ve made! Below are a few of my absolute FAVORITE desserts thus far.  And I’m sorry, but not all of these are healthy. (Actually, I’m not sorry. A girl needs some butter once in a while)!

Chocolate covered pop chips. Yes these are real and yes they taste better than sex. Make them immediately.

Orange champagne cupcakes with a strawberry champagne frosting. I made these for the book club I hosted on Friday and they were a hit! Despite having a bit of a sugar coma from the frosting, these are incredible.

This one is healthy! Light pistachio gelato. Holy COW guys, this stuff is amazing. So creamy, so flavorful and so LIGHT!

I’ve got quite a few more up my sleeve and those will be shared soon, I promise! Now, onto what I ate yesterday hosted by the lovely Peas and Crayons. Not these desserts, sadly.


Whole wheat toast with homemade strawberry jam. This jam is my absolute FAVORITE. It’s so good and tastes 100x better than store bought. Paired with a cup of French Roast, this is the perfect breakfast.


Honey roasted squash and zucchini salad. SO GOOD and perfect for this #WIAW’s theme, GO GREEN! I made it for work like 2 weeks ago and just had to re-create the dish again. It’s amazing and has just 4 points! Win!


A couple frozen strawberries! I mean, I’m all about fresh fruit but when you freeze it, your mind thinks you are eating dessert! HA HA! Tricked you, mind!


A secret dish involving this spicy peach jam, chicken, rice and some green beans 🙂 Don’t worry, I’ll be sharing the post next week!


Some fresh sorbet 🙂 MMM. I had to use those frozen strawberries for something, ya know 🙂

    Your puppy is adorable.  Puppies and dessert - perfect combination.

    I'd love to learn the gelato recipe. And, I never thought to just eat the frozen strawberries, yum!

    Your whole day is around 1200-1500 calories at most...I'm not trying to be debbie downer, but is that sustainable for day-to-day living for optimal health?
