friday faves

 Happy Friday friends!  I hope you have some fun plans for this holiday weekend.  Maybe some plans to drink green beverages and eat corned beef?!  Be safe out there!  And now, my favorites from this past week.


Favorite Beer-Inspired Dessert: Guinness Chocolate Cake with Salted Caramel Glaze.


Favorite Breakfast: Lightened-Up Cinnamon Rolls.  Cinnamon rolls are one of my faaaaaavorite homemade breakfasts and since these are lightened up, I can have three!


Favorite Festive Appetizer: Avocado Feta Dip.  This dip has it all – healthy, festive for St. Patrick’s Day, and looks delicious!


Favorite Perfect Dessert: The Perfect White Cake.  I am currently searching for the birthday cake I will bake for myself (willingly!) next week.  Should I go classic?  Should I make something creative?  Something chocolate?  Something fruity?  At this rate I’m going to be baking myself 5 cakes…


Favorite Green Dessert: Mint Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Brownies.  Brownies and cheesecake?  AND mint?!  AND it’s green?!?!  Yes, yes, yes.



Favorite Comfort Food: Spicy Roasted Vegetable Macaroni and Cheese. Marc and I are both big fans of mac ‘n cheese, and I love finding new variations.  This one looks so yummy!   So cheesy!

Favorite I’m-Dreaming-Of-Summer Dish:  Zucchini Lasagna.  I just signed up for a CSA this year (after dearly missing being part of one last year) and cannot wait for an abundance of zucchini to make this!


Favorite Healthy Addiction: Addictive Brussels Sprouts Salad.  I’m a self-proclaimed b-sprout lover and I’m pretty sure I would quickly be addicted to this.

Favorite Reminder: some days this is harder than others but, as a health care professional, I try to hard to keep this in mind.  And I think everyone should!

    I love your Friday Faves. I made the High Protein Veggie Burgers you had on here a few weeks ago and they were amazing! And now I want to make that veggie mac n cheese- it looks so good! If you keep posting these I’ll never find time to create my own recipes. :)
