Cauliflower Crust Appetizers

Cauliflower Christmas Trees

I found an idea online that reminded me of the cauliflower pizza crust I’d made for pizza awhile back. The idea was little triangle trees, and I thought they’d be super cute made out of the cauli crusts. I could make the crusts, cut them into wedges and decorate them. Cute and healthy!

Pumpkin Granola {crunch up your yogurt!}

A handful of granola sprinkled on my morning carton of yogurt definitely makes it worth getting out of bed! I like low-fat yogurt in the morning, usually the kind with fruit mixed in, and not the Greek style. I’m sorry but Greek yogurt is just too much like eating a bowl of sour cream. Gag worthy to me! But even hubby says I’m wrong and eats it regularly, so experiment amongst yourselves and make your own choices when you eat yogurt.

I like almost any fruity yogurt except for lemon or raspberry. So ok, I’m maybe a little picky about my yogurt. But I’m also equally picky about my granola. I’ve bought and tried all kinds of granola, from cheap to pricey, and found I really only like one brand. Nature Valley® has been my favorite for a whole lot of years. Continue reading

Fritos Bars {oh yes I did!}

Several times a year I get together with my two sisters, my niece and my daughter for what we call a SOTT (Sisterhood of the Traveling Tiara) day to celebrate a birthday.  We each bring new foods and desserts to share throughout the day.  It’s a festival of snacking!   The food is usually to accompany a couple of chick flicks that would have bored our men anyway, and maybe a new craft we wanted to try out. So, often when I’m online surfing blogs and sites for recipes I bookmark them.  Then when a SOTT is coming up I have a whole list to choose from, usually on both of my computers!

My sister Linda emailed me a link to a recipe for Fritos bars a few weeks ago. They looked so good and I immediately decided I must try them, possibly for our next get-together. I love Fritos even crumbled in my lettuce salads, so this was definitely speaking my name! But looking at the bars on the site Linda’s link took me to, I thought they seemed messy and just not right.
