saint eggs: a less sinner version of deviled eggs

In the spirit of Easter, I was inspired to create what I call “Saint Eggs” which is less sinner version of Deviled Eggs. The holiness behind these Saint Eggs are due to the fact that NO mayonnaise is used in this recipe. In fact, instead of using mayonnaise I substituted it with cauliflower purée. Then the Saint Eggs were topped off with a few drops of the halo goodness white truffle oil.

Ok, Take it away…

Layered French ToastMorning or Anytime Snack
I am a breakfast-and-anytime-snack type of guy which led me to dream (yes, I dream about food and recipes from time to time, that’s what real foodies do) about this multi-layer french toast recipe. In my dream there were three things that kept going through my head; breakfast, snack, and lasagna (which I interpreted as something with different layers of flavors). After writing down the recipe I had dreamt about, I challenged myself to come up with a healthier alternative that’s just as flavorful. This led to the “no carb” version of this multi-layer french toast recipe. So with that said I’m sharing my delicious dreams with you and hope that you will enjoy it.

super easy, super healthy hamburger pita pizza

hamburger pizza my pizza is eating my pizza
I had this for lunch yesterday and it was seriously delicious that I just had to share. I love pita bread and find any excuse to use it. The inspiration behind making this was I remembered having gone to California Pizza Kitchen a very long time ago and ordering a “hamburger pizza”. Well, this is my version of it, I used ground turkey instead of beef. You’ll notice that I didn’t add any measurements in my ingredients because it’s really up to you and how you want it. The same goes with how long its in the oven just eye-ball it and keep an eye on it… you can’t screw this up, promise.

is it really a miracle? my thoughts on the Miracle Noodle

miracle noodle bowldon’t expect a miracle
Have you heard of these noodles? They are made of soluble plant fiber so they have no calories, no carbs, no protein, no fat… no nothing! For some reason there’s something about “no nothing” foods that creep me out. In fact, I have a couple of Walden Farms syrups that are also “no nothing” foods that also freaks me out. I keep thinking about what sorts of weird science has to happen in order to makes these things {hmmm… }. Ok, snap out of it! Let’s give them a try.

black bean brownie kiss bites

black bean brownie kiss bites treats make great gifts
For the past few years I’ve made Dave’s parents a dessert for Christmas. I was inspired by the Meltaway Brownie Bites Recipe from Hershey’s Kitchens but decided to make the brownie with black beans instead. I’ve seen many recipes for black bean brownie and wanted to try it myself. Treats really do make great gifts; it’s a labor of love, everyone loves sweets and it gives me an excuse to make naughty things (don’t forget it’s always good to taste your creations!).

waffle breakfast sandwich

waffle breakfast sandwich dunkin donuts’ got nothing on me
I’m currently tracking all my foods so I often figure out what I’m having for breakfast the night before. On this day I knew I wanted waffles but I wanted to change things up. Dunkin Donut’s waffle breakfast sandwich came to mind and inspired me to give it a try. I haven’t tried Dunkin’s version but what a novel idea. It came out really good and I can’t imagine it being better than this. Switch up your breakfast and give this a try!
