How To Pick A Superstar Watermelon Picking out a watermelon at the grocery store is such an anxiety plagued experience, isn’t it? If you pick a bad one, you’re stuck with 15-20 whopping pounds of watermelon terribleness. And then your options are to either force yourself to eat this yucky watermelon or throw it away…and both are less than desirable options. So my goal today is to help you pick sweet, ripe watermelons because I know how disappointing it is to get home, take your first bite of some sort of produce you buy, only to find out it sucks. All the tips here are tidbits I have gathered from personal experience and lots of conversations with produce people and farmers. Here’s what to look for when selecting a watermelon: Pick a dull looking watermelon. The darker the color of the creamy spot, the longer it was on the vine sweetening up.

Parmesan Chicken Salad This is one of my go to recipes. Yes, I know it's chicken salad but trust me - this isn't your grandma's chicken salad! My mom's friend Teresa used to be a caterer and this is her recipe. I got it from her several years ago and every time I make it everyone wants the recipe! It is SO yummy, but you have to make sure you use the right ingredients! It doesn't taste right if you don't use the mesquite chicken! Parmesan Chicken Salad Source: Jenna's Journey Recipes via Teresa 1 Bag Sam's Club Mesquite Grilled Chicken (pre-cooked) Mayo Olive Oil Lemon Juice Pre minced jarred garlic 1 bunch parsley Lots of grated Parmesan Defrost the chicken and chop it into very small cubes. 1 cup of mayo + 1 T olive oil + 1 t lemon juice. I usually use between 1.5 - 2 cups of may for the entire bag of chicken and adjust the OO and lemon juice as needed. Once mixed to desired consistency chop one whole bunch of parsley and add. Serve on croissants. Other great chicken recipes!!
(No Sugar!) Cookie Dough Dip *Super-excited face* On Friday night, my previous post went viral. It is absolutely crazy. With so many more people finding that post, I spent yesterday afternoon doing something I’d meant to do for a long time: creating a sugar-free version of the cookie dough dip. Instead, here is a new sugar-free version that does taste good– sweetened only with fruit! (No sugar!) It’s gluten-free, too. Inspired by my Cookie Dough Dip. 1 1/2 cups chickpeas or white beans (1 can, drained) (250g after draining)heaping 1/8 tsp salttiny bit over 1/8 tsp baking soda1 tbsp plus 1 tsp pure vanilla extract1/4 cup nut butter of choice (You can get away with using only 3 tbsp. In a bowl, cover the dates with 1/2 cup water. If you wish, you can use: Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips. This can be served as a dessert dip, as a spread (maybe in between apple slices or crackers?) Question of the Day: Do you ever watch the amount of sugar you eat? Now, since I eat very little sugar, I find that I don’t crave it at all.
Egg and Cheese Breakfast Sandwiches Admin Note: Since this post, I’ve remade these using a better technique. Be sure to check out my Breakfast Sandwiches Revisited. After I made baked chicken nuggets a few weeks ago and explained my deal with Betsy (if she wants something from McD’s, I try to make it for her), I got a few emails saying that the only meal some people will eat at McDonald’s is breakfast. This struck me as kind of odd because most of the stuff on their breakfast menu is even easier to reproduce at home than the stuff on their other menus. Take their classic Egg McMuffin for example. Yum. The Rundown I made 12 breakfast sandwiches for this post because they are really easy to freeze and they reheat nicely. My total bill for these came to $16.00 or about $1.33/sandwich. Here’s some interesting facts though about what a bit of time and that extra $3 gets you: Whole Grains. Directions 1) Lightly oil a muffin tin and crack an egg in each tin. 2) Bake the muffin tin with eggs in a 350 degree oven for 10-15 minutes. Or…
The Best Chocolate Ice Cream You'll Ever Have Last week, I began a new food series all about how to make killer versions of classic dishes. Well, get psyched, because Cenk from Cafe Fernando reveals how to make the best chocolate ice cream ever (without an ice-cream maker!)... The Best Chocolate Ice Cream You'll Ever Have By Cenk from Cafe Fernando Ice cream is to me what water is to others. My answer to the childhood question, "If you were stranded on an island, name three things..." had always been: Unlimited supply of chocolate ice cream, a giant freezer and a spoon. I want to you to know how serious I am about chocolate ice cream, because "The Best Chocolate Ice Cream You'll Ever Have" is quite a statement. For me, the most important qualities of "the best chocolate ice cream" are creaminess and a deep, intense chocolate flavor. And here comes the best part: You do not need an ice cream maker for this recipe.

Lunchbox Treats – Twenty Ideas for Wrap Fillings « The Sometimes it’s not the fillings that children send home in their lunch boxes, it’s the bread that encases them. It wasn’t until she was in Year 8 that my daughter admitted that she hated sandwiches. “I want something that’s not boring!”, she said, but when pressed further, she said, “anything but bread!” Anything but bread. Thank goodness we have so many options available, all of them budget priced and readily available from supermarket shelves. When you make the wraps, it’s worth remembering that it’s best to heat up the bread to soften it before you roll it up. Here then are twenty ideas for suitable fillings, which are of course interchangeable with the sandwich fillings provided last week. HERBED CHICKEN SALAD Not every salad has to be soaking in mayonnaise and this is a good example of a light and tasty lunch option. Like this: Like Loading...
