New Book!

The Skinnytaste Cookbook- Light on Calories, Big on FlavorI purchased a new cookbook this week! I’veĀ been following this author on Facebook and receiving blog updates for the past couple of months so I figured it was time to bite the bullet. All her recipes look amazing! I made the BLT & Avocado Salad tonight which was delicious and also tried the Baked Bananas Foster a’la Mode which was pretty good, too! Can’t wait to try more!


Crunchy Apple Salad

It’s apple season and that means I’m on the search for as many new apple-containing recipes as I can find! A follower of Taste of Home magazine on Twitter, this recipe was posted last week. They boasted it was a healthy and delicious apple dish. With an upcoming “shared lunch” at work, I knew I would have the perfect audience to test it out on! Everyone said they really liked it (whether they meant it or not, I’ll never know) but I thought it was pretty good, too! Each 3/4 cup servings contains 109 calories which isn’t too bad for a dessert, don’t you agree? Crunchy, creamy, sweet and tart all in the same dish…I’ll definitely make it again!
