This salted caramel pumpkin pie yogurt parfait is a healthy, quick and easy snack, breakfast or dessert.  Like, really easy.  Like five minutes and you’re done easy.  That is definitely winning in my book.  Who has time for making desserts these days?  Not me!  Also, it’s fall.  In case you didn’t realize.  I’m not sure if you’ve seen all the pumpkin spice everything…everywhere.  There’s just something about adding pumpkin spice to anything in the fall to make it taste better, isn’t there?  This yogurt was no exception.  It was a deliciously pumpkin-y spice treat!yogurt parfait

There’s something about eating chips and dips while watching football.  It’s just total perfection.  This weekend I was seriously craving spinach artichoke dip.  But in an effort to lighten up one of these all-time favorites, I decided to try something new.  I wanted something that still tasted like traditional football watching munchies.  So I went semi-healthy.  I didn’t touch the holy grail that is spinach artichoke dip.  I’m sorry, I just firmly believe that it needs every bit of mayo, cheese and sour cream that the recipe calls for.  So the only option was to change the vessel that you use to eat the dip.  And spinach artichoke stuffed mushrooms was born.  I still got to eat this yummy treat without quite as much guilt.

Alfredo Sauce

This alfredo sauce recipe is the bomb dot com.  I’ve tried many, and this one beats them all.  Maybe it’s a personal preference, but I’m not a huge fan of sauces that are too thick, and that’s always my issue with homemade alfredo sauces.  I like them a little bit thinner, so they coat the pasta better.  You don’t need a lot of this sauce to make anything you’re eating taste absolutely divine, trust me.

Jalapeno Artichoke Dip – Costco Clone

This dip. GUYS. You have to try it. Creamy jalapeño artichoke dip. Yum, yum, YUM! Have you ever had the Costco version of this? It’s surprisingly delicious (and even more so when warmed up a bit!). What is it about dips?  They are so tasty and so easy!  We should all be making dips at home on a regular basis.  In my quest for duplicating restaurant/store bought items, I decided to give this a try. It was much easier than I thought. There’s only 5 ingredients – jalapeños, artichokes, cream cheese, mayo, and parmesan cheese. I played around until I found a version that I liked, and here it is.
