Cream Cheese Alfredo

In keeping with the healthy-eating theme from my last post (Chipotle Caesar Salad), here is another lighter version of a classic. I made alfredo pasta, but you won’t find any heavy cream or butter here. You can happily eat a bowl of this alfredo without feeling heavy or weighed down. Scroll down to see the…

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Hello hello and welcome to week 2 (of 2) of fall themed recipes on my blog! This week, my special ingredient is PUMPKIN which I think is the food most associated with the season. You already know how much I love squash but pumpkin sort of hits differently. It’s so creamy and sweet but a…

Chocolate Covered Cheesecake Bites

About a month ago, I made these cheesecake bars (link here) which were absolutely incredible. If you are looking for a tasty and not too unhealthy cheesecake, you should make those. *The recipe I used calls for lemon (juice & zest) but I just omitted those for a more plain cheesecake. I couldn’t get that…

Cheese Platter

I know a cheese platter is more of a dish to serve to guests/for a party, but since the pandemic, it’s just been my parents and I. We decided to make one anyways as a nice snack on the weekend. A cheese platter can be as simple or elaborate as you wish, but you need…

Simple Iced Coffee

I’m one of those people who don’t like to drink hot coffee but I love it iced. I will brew a whole pot of coffee, let it cool and store it in a big jug/bottle in the fridge. One pot lasts me 1-2 weeks because I don’t drink coffee everyday. It’s so nice to have…

Happy fall everyone! The weather is still pretty nice where I live but I’m sad that days are getting shorter. I am very much looking forward to fall weather though and eating lots of soups and squash. Also, I am moving along with this cookbook and am already on recipe 7! The first recipe of…

Lemon Cucumber Cupcakes

I know my first 2 cucumber recipes were a little more traditional, this last one was definitely out of the box. I really wanted to see if there were any recipes that used cucumber in desserts. There were surprisingly more recipes than I thought there would be. I ended up choosing this cucumber and lemon…

Carrot Frozen Yogurt

I’ve been having a lot of fun with carrot week. This last recipe was a little out of the box. I mean, have you ever heard of carrot frozen yogurt? Well, I guess you have now 🙂 I know it might sound super strange but I wanted to try something different. I couldn’t find any…
