WIAW + New Dessert Recipes!
Happy Wednesday friends! How are y’all doing today? I’m somewhat shocked it’s already Wednesday since I’m fairly certain it was just Monday. Like, yesterday. Time needs to slow down! So, before I dive right into what I [shamefully] ate yesterday, I want to share a few delicious desserts I’ve been working on for She Knows that I know y’all are just going to LOVE [and want to make immediately]. [PS. They aren’t all healthy]
The beautiful blueberry lemon ice cream I linked to yesterday but just HAD to share again. I mean, look at it! Creamy, tart and with a hint of lemon zest. MMM. Find the RECIPE HERE.
Love sweet and salty? You’re going to DIE for these dark chocolate pistachio cookies. They are rich, chewy and have just the right amount of crunch and saltiness from the nuts. They are like, insane crazy good. Find the RECIPE HERE.
Mini black cherry cheesecakes. Yep, that’s really all I can say because I ate 15 of them this weekend. I’m not mad about it nor do I regret it. These creamy, tart little desserts are HEAVENLY. Find the RECIPE HERE.
Now, onto what I ate yesterday, which is shameful and a bit embarrassing. I blame that TOTM. If you don’t understand that acronym, go back to high school PE.
A piece of this delicious blueberry muffin cake. However, in my defense for eating cake for breakfast, it’s got the same ingredients as a muffin and is substantially lightened up! So there naysayers!
Plus gallons of coffee. Literally, gallons of it.
Egg salad with a bit of broccoli slaw! So good! Plus, whenever I eat egg salad, it reminds me picnics which always make me smile. To keep calories and fat in check, I lightened up the traditional recipe with Greek yogurt! Will link to the recipe early next week!
Then, come snack time, things went a little downhill.
A vat of Easter candy. An entire GIANT vat. I had to buy the candy for a pretty Easter centerpiece for work and thought “oh it’s fine if I keep it around, I won’t eat it!” Sigh. Why must I be so naive. Because of my binge on candy, I knew dinner had to be SUPAHHH healthy.
I made a delicious one-pot vegan stir-fry! I followed the base recipe for my famous szechaun chicken and instead of chicken, added some legumes and protein powder for added protein. Guys, it’s just as good as the meaty original! Will link to the recipe next week when it’s live!
Surprisingly, even after a huge helping of this, I was still hungry. So, instead of diving into the Easter candy again, I had some peanuts.
Not nearly as good but hey, it’s a step in the right, healthy direction.
Speaking of healthy, tomorrow I’m comin’ atcha with a weight loss post. Yep. Something unrelated to food. I hope you’ll still read/like me. Happy Wednesday!
