108.6K Flares 108.6K Flares × I’ve posted fruit leather recipes before, but if I haven’t convinced you yet, let me try again: making your own fruit leather is super easy. Super easy. And when you make it yourself, you’re making it without food coloring, without sugar, and without artificial flavors. Just fruit, nothing else.

Mozzarella sticks are a delicious treat, probably one of the most popular appetizers at restaurants, and a fun party food. They tend to be rather fattening, especially considering they are usually fried, but they are so irresistibly tasty. So how do you give in to the temptation that is mozzarella sticks without the guilt?
And I’m not even kidding! Easiest. Recipe. Ever! Thanks to my sweet brother, Ramon, who recently came for a visit, I’ve finally learned to make this delicious recipe for homemade Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François . If you’ve been intimidated to make homemade bread, your store bought days are over.
Mashed potatoes are one of my favorite things to eat on Thanksgiving, but this year since I am pregnant and on a really strict low carb diet (for my diabetes) real mashed potatoes are out (bummer). I recently started researching alternatives to some of my favorite dishes because there is NO way my plate will be without a big ole pile of mash potatoes. I came across this recipe that uses cauliflower instead of potatoes. Hmmm not a big cauliflower fan so I wasn't sure. If there is a choice of either celery or cauliflower in a veggie dish 9 times out of 10 I will choose the celery. BUT I decided to give it a try since the reviews were outstanding.
Step aside, Kellogg. Better crackers coming through. CHEEZ-ITS are wonderful–and we all know this because we’ve been eating them since we were ten (unless you’re 75). We can each vouch for the fact that they have overly addictive properties–so many, apparently, that we’ve been instructed to get our own box.
Tzatziki is a classic Greek cucumber yogurt sauce or dip. It is served as a condiment on gyros, fish and souvlakis, and other Greek dishes or it is served as a dip with pita wedges. I personally love it on my Spinach and Feta Stuffed Chicken Breasts , on chicken burgers, as a dip with crudites and even drizzled over Greek salad. My lightened up version is fat free and zero points ! I can't think of a better time to make this with all the cucumbers and fresh herbs growing in my garden right now.
Why there is no need to purchase pre-made fries in the freezer aisle – in pictures and rhyme: One potato (find a potato) Two potato (cut the ends off) Three potato (cut slices) Four (cut fries from slices) Five potato (Toss in herbs and olive oil)
Every other month, the cheery folks at " Great Day St. Louis " invite me on the show to cook something using beer as an ingredient. Today's recipe was one of my favorites yet: beer-soaked fries that you bake, not fry. I discovered the recipe from The Edible Perspective when a friend posted it on Twitter a few months ago.
