No-Bake White Chocolate Cheesecake with Strawberries

No-Bake White Chocolate Cheesecake with Strawberries

The sinfully delicious combination of white chocolate, vanilla and citrus in this no-bake cheesecake is perfect when topped with fresh strawberries.     Did I ever tell you that I had white chocolate cheesecake as my wedding cake? It makes sense, considering how much I love cheesecake and white chocolate. Unfortunately, as our minds are prone to do, once I saw this recipe and started thinking about that most amazing day and dessert, my thoughts start rabbit-trailing. You see, the[read more]
Southwestern Bowl

Southwestern Bowl

Packed with protein, fiber and flavor, this fantastic quinoa salad is bursting with good things, like mango, avocado and bell pepper. I set a timer as I was making this salad.

When Dad found out what I needed, he, destroying the pronunciation with[read more]
Grilled Steak Skewers with Arugula Chimichurri

Grilled Steak Skewers with Arugula Chimichurri

These gloriously spiced Grilled Steak Skewers are awesome on their own, but twice as delicious with the Arugula Chimichurri. Food on a stick may be one of my favorite summer things to eat. Corn dogs and frozen desserts aside, if something's been skewered prior to cooking, there's a good chance that it's a bit more healthy than it would be otherwise. One thing that I'm not overly fond of when it comes to kebabs, however, is dealing[read more]
