Raspberry-Mint Limeade Frozen Yogurt Sponsored by Yulu Yogurt

Hello Darlings!

With the Solstice come and gone, it is officially summer! And now that the crazy Denver weather has (somewhat) subsided, it is hot, hot, hot here in Colorado! I don’t know about you, but when the temperatures reach the 90s all I want is frozen yogurt and lemonade. So, when Yulu Yogurt reached out and asked me to try their new Aussie-Style yogurt I decided to create a recipe that would cool down my body and perk up my taste buds. Enter: Raspberry-Mint Limeade Frozen Yogurt.

Weekly Snack Attack

Hello Darlings!

If you you’ve been following my WIAWs for a while, you might have noticed that 1. I am really bad about them getting posted on Wednesdays and 2. I am pretty bad at capturing a single day’s worth of food. However, I am a big fan of photographing my snacks! Which, quite frankly, are often a bit more fun anyway!

So, without further ado: Snacktime!

Garlic Scape Pesto Shrimp with Rainbow Stir-Fry

Hello Darlings!

Farmers’ markets make me SO happy. Fun people, pups in tow, great food, and live music- can’t get better than that. This last weekend I popped over to the Cherry Creek Farmers’ Market here in Denver with a one-track mind. I wanted garlic scapes, badly. Ever since I discovered them from a farmer down the road when I lived in rural Connecticut, I’ve been in love. But they have a very fleeting season, twice a year for a few weeks apiece. However, the season is now! So pop over to your local market pick some up and have SO much fun creating garlic-y wonderfulness.

Recipe Makeover: Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip (No Mayo!)

Hello Darlings!

I love comfort food- rich, creamy, delicious, not necessarily great for you comfort food. And, when it comes down to it, spinach-artichoke dip is one of my favorites. I have been subbing Greek yogurt for the mayonnaise in recipes for quite a while now. The creaminess without all of the saturated fat? Yes, Please! (Healthy Chicken Salad anyone?)  So I set out to finagle my family’s go-to artichoke dip recipe into a healthier, but still delectable version of itself. I have to say, I succeeded with flying colors. Yep, totally tooting my own horn. It is that good.
