Welcome to my very first “skinny” recipe! I’ll be honest – I’m not sure I love the use of “skinny” in recipe titles, and I’ve been hesitant to jump on that particular bandwagon. But sometimes you’ve just gotta go with the most descriptive word, and so “skinny” it is.
These vanilla cheesecake pops are the best of both worlds – they taste so rich and utterly sinful, but they’re only 128 calories each. Seriously – 128 calories!
I thought I’d go with a “Happy Endings” type recipe for this Friday. These are sweet, easy, and cute … the perfect conclusion to the week.
These two-bite tarts (three if you’re daintier than me) are ideal for entertaining – they’re easy finger food, they look great, and they take – I’m not kidding – not even 10 minutes to make. Taste-wise, the filling is just right. Sour cream, cream cheese, whipping cream, lemon zest, brown sugar, and a little vanilla. It’s the perfect base for those beautiful bursts of blueberries.
The bittersweet truth is, fall is pretty much here – and I, for one, am feeling it. In fact, I’ve just about given in. I’ve been thinking about pumpkin recipes. I lit an apple candle. I even found myself brewing up some chili in the crock pot a couple days ago.
But in one last-ditch attempt to hold on to the sunny joy of our too-short Seattle summer, I took my two youngest nephews to the blueberry farm and we gathered the last few berries from the last few bushes that had still had them.
And then I made these Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Squares.
