2011 Highlights

Must Try

Lauren Zembronhttps://www.healthyfoodforliving.com/
I am a 34 year old living outside of Boston with my wonderful husband, energetic daughter, sweet son, and playful dog. I have degrees in both psychology and guidance counseling, and have worked in a variety of school settings. I strive to find a balance between the two basic food philosophies of “eat to live” and “live to eat“. I believe that food should be (and is!) one of the great pleasures of leading a healthy lifestyle.

As I sloooowly add my whole arsenal of recipes to my Recipage, I’ve had a fun time re-familiarizing myself with posts from the past year.

Before kicking off 2011 I put together a list of 2010 Favorites from the blog, and decided to do the same for this past year. Some of these recipes are your favorites from 2011 and some are mine… but all are delicious.

Individual Breakfast Pizzas

Chewy-crispy dough topped with crumbled sausage, gooey cheese, and – of course – eggs. Perfect for breakfast or dinner!

Peanut Butter Chocolate Lava Cake for One

Soft peanut butter chocolate cake with a molten chocolate center and peanut butter drizzle – all for you. The definition of healthy decadence.

Red Berry Salad with Granola-Crusted Goat Cheese

Ripe strawberries and raspberries team up with tangy goat cheese and crisp granola – topped with a sweet homemade berry vinaigrette.

Happy New Year!!

Carrot Cake Pancakes for One

Tender and fluffy carrot cake pancakes topped with a cream cheese glaze and toasted pecans. Also know as my favorite stack of pancakes-for-one. Ever.

Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream

Creamy, sweet, smooth, and luscious. Not exactly light, but definitely worth the splurge!

Happy New Year!!

Chocolate Ganache Pudding

An avocado-based fudgy chocolate pudding that tastes like ganache. Unbelievably rich.

Happy New Year!!

Vanilla Bean Coconut Peanut Butter

Homemade peanut butter with vanilla bean paste and coconut butter. Totally addictive!

Pumpkin Spice Latte Streusel Muffins

My favorite seasonal muffin is perked up with coffee, resulting in a baked good that tastes like the classic fall beverage.

Happy New Year!!

Gingerbread Cookie Dough Cheesecake Dip

This dip tastes exactly like a hybrid of gingerbread cookies and cheesecake. It tastes great with cookies, apple slices, and a variety of other dippers… but I bet you will eat most of it with a spoon!

Happy New Year!!

Pumpkin, Black Bean, & Jalapeno Quesadillas with Chipotle Pumpkin Crema

My favorite recipe to date that I’ve created for The Back Burner Blog of Key Ingredient, these quesadillas are full of bold flavors and melty cheese. I’m actually craving one right now!

Happy New Year!!

Spiced Sweet Potato Blondies with Cranberries and White Chocolate

Three of my favorite autumnal flavors packed into one treat. These dense blondies are without a doubt my new favorite bar recipe!

Happy New Year!!

Pumpkin Pie Polenta/Grits

A nice departure from oatmeal,  regular ol’ corn polenta is cooked with pumpkin and topped with sweet maple syrup & buttery pecans in this tasty breakfast.

Almond Joy Macaroons

Coconut. Almond. Chocolate.

Enough said.

Happy New Year!!
