Baked cheese balls OK, so we did the experiment with the egg roll wrappers and string cheese to make baked cheese sticks and they turned out alright...but nothing to write home about. These, my friends, were not the same outcome. Yes, I used the leftover string cheese from the above recipe. Yes, I used the leftover mix of breading from my baked zucchini chips that I kept in an airtight container in the cupboard until I figured out what to do with it. And, yes, marrying those two ingredients together made the best homemade cheeseball I've made to date. Booyah! Cut your sticks into balls, dip in skim milk, and toss in the breading.... I actually don't know how long I baked them because I watched them the whole time thinking they were going to cheesily explode in the oven because how could the cheese not just melt instead of staying in between the teeniest layer of breading that I could barely see after I put them on the greased baking sheet? Don't mind the shadows in the pictures, they're irrelevant.

Soft & Chewy Sugar-Free Baked Granola Bars January 8, 2014Angela (Oh She Glows) The alternate title for these bars was: ultra dense, doughy, chewy, soft, seedy, hearty, protein-and-fibre-packed granola bars, sweetened naturally with dates! I can be a bit wordy at times. I didn’t feel like calling them “chia bread” though due to the sweetness; granola bars just seemed to make more sense in my brain.

Cheesecake Stuffed Strawberries Yum! Yummy, yummy. Yuuum! This is actually what stayed in my head after tasting these delicious cheesecake filled strawberries. And I think that it pretty much sums up what this whole experience was about… just PURE YUM! You SO have to try this! I can assure you that preparing this lovely summer treat is ultra-simple. All you need is about 2 pounds (1 kg) larger fresh strawberries, 8 ounce package (250 grams) cream cheese (softened), 4 tablespoons powdered sugar (depending on how sweet you want the filling), 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and about 1 ounce (30 grams) graham cracker (or butter cookie) crumbs. 1. 2. If you want to stand your strawberries upright (like in the picture) slice a bit off the bottom. Don’t they just look cute already? 3. 4. 5. … and fill the strawberries. Aaah! 6. 7. Another alternative is to dip the top in the crumbs. For some reason, I can perfectly imagine caramel sauce stepping into the game here. Enjoy! Love, Petra (The recipe was adapted from

Kitchen scoop: Cobbler's soft crust perfect complement to sweet berries Mmmm, fresh strawberries. The kid in me still loves going to the pick your own fields, filling baskets with the fruit. At home, the freshly picked berries go into freezer jam, cakes, pies, smoothies and Strawberry Feta Salad, my favorite summer salad. (All of these recipes and more can be found on This year, I have more than a few quarts of berries that are almost too ripe. The secret to this cobbler is the crust that is perfectly soft and sweet, leaving the berries (or other fruit) to peek through.

Banana Bread Protein Bars Whenever my heart feels heavy, lost, or confused I tend to turn to the kitchen to distract myself. Seeking comfort in food isn’t as bad as those ridiculous diet magazines make it out to be. Food can bring us all together and make us pause to enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Sometimes, a big pot of chili and garlic bread, creamy avocado pasta, or warm walnut banana bread is just the thing we need in that moment. It’s been an emotional week to say the least. These banana bread bars were my solution to another comfort food craving yesterday.

Cheesy Garlic Sticks All righty. Cheesy Garlic Sticks. I make them all the time. I don't make my own pizza dough. When you get your dough, it may need to be 'proofed', which just means it may need to rise. Next up for me to decide on was the type of cheese. After that, I grabbed a spoon and my jar of minced garlic from the fridge (I know, I know, but I love that stuff), I drizzled just a little bit of the garlic infused oil on the pizza, as well as some of the minced garlic itself. I've also added dried garlic powder to this, in addition to the garlic oil / minced garlic, to make it extra potent. All in all, I thought it tasted fantastic.
