I should start using more sweet potatoes in my cooking, I tend to use a lot of squash instead. In fact, I found a recipe for spinach salad yesterday, wth butternut squash cubes and cranberries, with toasted almonds sprinkled over the top - I'm going to try it this week.
I reserved part of the whipped cream cheese and instead of doing just savory fillings, I made a little cheesecake filling for the strawberries. I mixed in some lowfat yogurt and confectioners sugar (as little as I could get away with) and vanilla. Then I piped that into some of the strawberries... and crumbled graham crackers over the top. Next time, I'm going to try adding some fresh squeezed orange or clementine juice to the filling.
I'm gonna need to eat salads forever now.
Does anyone watch the new chef on Food Network? her name is Aarti. I am totally in love with her! She's beautiful with a great warm personality, has a great English accent, wears cool clothes, and has a kitchen I would DIE for....really bright, with gorgeous flowered wallpaper and red-pink lower cabinets. plus I like her recipes- they are interesting, but the ingredients are still ones can find.
Check out the little bench with the hot pink silk pillows!
