Cheesy Cauliflower Breadsticks

 Low-carb breadsticks made with a cauliflower crust that tastes just like the real deal. Plus, they are easier to make than regular homemade breadsticks.


Few things get me as excited as Pizza Night. Not only do I love eating pizza, but I enjoy the whole process of making it as well. While I have yet to master the throw-your-pizza-up-in-the-air-and-catch-it technique, I am pretty sure I’ve figured out how to make homemade pizza just the way we like it. We are traditionalists when it comes to pizza. A simple pepperoni or Hawaiian pizza made with a thin crust has our names written all over it.


And my Type A personality loves being in control of all aspects of the pizza-making process as well.

Lots and lots of stringy and melted deliciousness. [Read more…]

Skinny Mozzarella Sticks

I am not a huge fan of fried things. Never really have been. I make exceptions for scrumptious desserts, but even then I like to go with a shallow fry, like extremely shallow. It’s not just the calories that are less than appealing, but the greasy texture and oily film coupled with the heaviness of such foods are a big turnoff. And don’t even get me started on the mess. The splatters, smell, and cleanup are a neat freaks’ worst enemy. Yep, I better admit it now. I clean up as I go through my kitchen adventures, own an extremely organized pantry, and rinse every single dish before it meets the dishwasher. I just can’t help it. So when I came across a recipe for baked mozzarella sticks a few years back, I couldn’t wait but to give it a try.

*Drool factor. No, serious drool factor. I made these during the lunch hour the other day and couldn’t have been happier about my meal. Warm, melted cheese wrapped in a crispy coating of more cheese and bread crumbs. Dipped in marinara sauce. To say I was a happy camper would be an understatement.

Finger Foods are ruling my world lately and I have nothing negative to say about that. I guess super bowl fever has caught me a few weeks early, but hey, I ain’t complaining. [Read more…]
