Do you remember my easiest Nutella cookie recipe I made at the beginning of this year? I’ve made them about a dozen times and have gotten a lot of positive responses. Well, this weekend I made them even better. Just as easy as the original recipe, but now eggless and a little healthier. They still taste just as good, maybe even a little better than the original.
It’s only 3 ingredients, or 4 if you add chocolate chips. Both versions taste great.
I’ve got another easy summer recipe to share and some exciting news. I recently was contacted by local San Diego radio station Smooth 98.1 to make a few recipes for their Lite, Refreshing Recipes of Summer series. I’ve been in summer recipe making mode, so I jumped at the opportunity to partner with them. Over the next four weeks, I’ll be sharing one recipe a week, starting with today.
I’ll be discussing the recipes each week this month on the Tuesday morning show (between 8-9) and Smooth 98.1 is running a contest as well to win a Humphrey’s Brunch for two. You can read more details here.
I love how cute these are and they are perfect to eat on a hot summer day, bring to a party, etc. They don’t require any baking and you don’t even need utensils to eat them.
Plus, they are healthier than regular cheesecake. The cheesecake filling is actually a blend of cream cheese and nonfat Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is amazing. I love using it to cut calories and fat out of recipes without sacrificing taste. So far I’ve successfully used it to replace eggs, butter, and sour cream in various recipes.
We recently went to check out the latest selection at Fleming’s Happy Hour, which is offered seven days at week from 5 until 7pm. Since I can rarely make happy hour during the work week, I love it when places offer it on weekends. I also love that Fleming’s changes up its happy hour menu so there is usually something new to try every few months.
Tropical Martini and Peach Sparkler
What’s happy hour without a relaxing cocktail?
Pan Crisped Pork Belly
This was a new item. Unfortunately, I felt the pork belly was overcooked. It was past the point of crispy and was too dry.
French Quarter Barbeque Shrimp
I’ve seen this on the menu in the past but this was my first time ordering it and I loved it. I especially enjoyed the creamy spicy sauce and wished we had been given extra bread to sop it up.
