    Pineapple Frozen Yogurt

    I love ice cream but its not healthy enough to eat everyday. I thought it was time to make something that was ice cream like but is much healthier. I decided to make my own frozen yogurt without added sugar and unnecessary additives. This also reminds me of the pineapple ice cream I’ve had at Disney World. Yum! I recommend serving this after freezing it for an hour or so. If it sits for too long in the freezer it will turn into a block, it’s still good but you will have to defrost for a while before digging in. Pineapple Frozen Yogurt Ingredients: Greek yogurt, plain or vanilla 1…

    Foolproof Crepes & Fillings

    As a cook, crepes have always intimidated me. The flipping and the thin texture seemed like a recipe for a big mess. When I mustered enough courage, I turned to my kitchen guru, Alton Brown for a recipe. He did not let me down. So this recipe I’m sharing is his, however I am also providing my own filling options and cooking tips. Ingredients: 2 Eggs 3/4 Cup milk 1/2 Cup water 1 Cup flour 3 Tablespoons melted butter Method: Place ingredients in blender as listed. Blend 7 to 10 seconds – no longer!

    Shortbread Cookies

    I love drinking tea when it’s cold outside. There is nothing better than sipping a steamy mug of lady grey as snow falls. Unless it’s sipping a steamy mug of lady grey tea while enjoying a shortbread cookie as snow falls. This recipe is incredibly easy and uses few ingredients. Use a fun cookie cutter for extra credit. Shortbread Cookies Ingredients: 2 Sticks butter, melted halfway in microwave and cooled 3/4 Cup powdered sugar 1 3/4 Cup all purpose flour 1/4 Cup cornstarch 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder 1 Teaspoon vanilla (as always, I used more)
