Okay, okay, I know you’re probably getting tired of all of the pumpkin recipes…But, I know there are a few of you out there who are just like me and CAN’T get enough of the pumpkin. So, I just HAD to share this recipe with you!
I’ve always loved baking sweets and treats for the ones I love. (Seriously, ask my hubby. I used to mail him boxes of cookies when we were dating and living 6 hours apart.)
Today not much has changed. I still love sharing baked goods with my sweet little family. But instead of the regular variety, I tweak my recipes to make them a little more nutritious (without sacrificing on flavor)!
It’s no secret…I have always, seriously ALWAYS had a sweet tooth! (Like sneak back into the kitchen and lick all the icing off the cupcakes sweet tooth. 🙈) And I won’t say that I’ve miraculously been cured of my love of sweets. (I still enjoy a good cupcake every now and then.) But I have found a few ways to effectively curb my sweet cravings and figured I’d share with you because I know I’m not the only out there who has struggled slaying the sugar dragon.
Y’all! It is definitely that time of year when I just don’t want to spend any more time in the kitchen (or on anything really) than I have to! I don’t want to sacrifice on my nutrition goals, though, so I’m wracking my brain for all the EASY but healthy summer dinner options I can think of!
Chinese has always been one of those foods that I’d gorge myself on and then hate myself afterward. Literally, it’s like I just can’t control myself when there are crab rangoons involved. 🙅🏼
So instead of giving in to temptation, I whipped up a little “Chinese Fakeout” instead! I got the same flavors without all of the added fat and carbs. (Minus the rangoons, of course. I’ll save those for a day when I’m planning a cheat.)
