In my ongoing quest to try new recipes and find interesting eats, I am bringing you some delicious bites found around the web (through all of my blog reading!).
Soups & Salads:
Lasagna Soup: Skinnytaste is one of my favorite recipe blogs. I love her simple, but delicious healthy weeknight dishes. This looks like a winner.
Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili: I really love and trust TheKitchn’s recipes. They test and retest their recipes and they always turn out well for me.
Kale Pesto Mac N Cheese: A teeny tiny bit of a healthy take on traditional mac n cheese. I’m a little hesitant on the pumpkin seeds, so may just use pine nuts like a traditional pesto.
Thai Chicken Peanut Lettuce Cups: This looks like a great healthy dinner. I’m a huge fan of lettuce cups and this recipe looks fab.
Broken Pasta with Kale, Mushrooms and Sausage: This looks like a great hearty winter meal. I love the presentation and am planning on making this over the weekend.
Biscoff Stuffed Snickerdoodles: Take my favorite cookie with my favorite spread and you get these cookies. I am going to attempt them this week and will keep you posted!
Sugar Cookie Dough Cups: UM, yes. These needs no words.
Poached Pears with Yogurt: After some decadent desserts, I thought this lighter dish was a good idea. I feel like this would be a fabulous weeknight sweet without being sinful.
What are YOU cooking this weekend?
Let’s talk about this fur vest. I was a little skeptical at first, since it’s a little bit wild for me, but I’ve totally fallen in love with this fur vest. I love it in the winter over a sweater and jeans and in the summer over a summer dress. Also these booties have been such a fun addition to my closet this winter!
Vest: Tart (sold out, similar)
Sweater: J. Crew Tilly Sweater $60 (on sale!)
Necklace: Similar Marc by Marc Jacobs $128
Jeans: AG $176 (got them on sale, SUPER comfy)
Booties: DV by Dolce Vita $100 (These J. Crew ones are also fabulous!)
Folks, I know I’ve been “baking” a whole lot of no bake pies, but when I am having last minute company and need a recipe, it is always my go to. This weekend, we had last minute guests and I decided another no bake was in store for us. Instead of doing my usual peanut butter, I wanted to spice it up a bit and used cookie butter from Trader Joe’s instead. Holy YUM. This pie was decadent, delicious and as always, a crowd pleaser.
No Bake Cookie Butter Pie
Makes 1 Pie (serves 6-8)
- 1 cup Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter
- 1 Package Cream Cheese (reduced fat is fine)
- 1 1/4 cup Powdered Sugar
- 1 Package 12-ounce Cool Whip, thawed
- 1 9-inch pre-baked pie crust (Oreo is preferred)
- Using either a stand or hand mixer, cream together cream cheese and cookie butter until light and fluffy, approximately 3minutes. Add sugar and beat until smooth. Using a large spatula, fold in whipped topping.
- Spoon mixture into crust and refrigerate for 4 hours or if you are in a rush, put it in the freezer for 2.
