Honey Citrus Salad

Honey Citrus Salad

This easy recipe for Honey Citrus Salad is just for me. You know those precious weekend mornings you get all alone? It doesn’t happen often. The kids are at a sleep over. The husband is off hunting or whatever…you really don’t care. You. Are. Home. Alone!!

Wake up…total silence. You brew yourself some delicious coffee, snuggle up in a blanket in your favorite chair. And sit. In peace and quiet. Alone.

Then you get hungry. What to eat? Wait…I can make anything I want. In a serving size meant for one person!

After a quick survey of the fridge and pantry, I went for fruit. Simple, fresh and with a touch of honey and cinnamon, so delicious!

Veggie Pizza Appetizer

Veggie Pizza Appetizer Recipe

One of the benefits of working where I do (my real job at the office) is that my co-workers are amazing in the kitchen. No, seriously. When we have office parties , we know how to throw down. We have bakers. We have crock pot queens. We have cornbread aficionados. But this is one of my faves : Veggie Pizza.

I cannot claim ownership of this awesome appetizer recipe. All of the credit, 100%, goes to a lovely and talented co-worker of mine. Seriously, Mrs. T is the queen of all things crafty and delicious.

Everyone else goes crazy over cupcakes. I’m crazy about this Veggie Pizza. Creamy, savory, and full of colorful and crunchy veggies.

(And cupcakes. So don’t stop bringing the cupcakes, ladies.)

Sweet Potato Pie with Sweet Potato Crust. Yep. We are trying new ideas in the kitchen. Yummy ideas. Ideas that don’t suck. Ideas that help shave a few calories off of a classic Southern pie recipe.
