Easy Cinnamon And Sugar Flaky Twists

Lower Fat Cinnamon Pastry Twists

 

You have probably seen similar twists in the mall but those are loaded with much more fat and calories than in my twists. This recipe is very easy, and skinny! You can serve it for breakfast, brunch or with a hot cup of tea. When I make these cinnamon twists they are gone in minutes and are best when they are warm from the oven. If you eat them later on, warm up in the microwave for a few seconds.

Roasted Butternut Squash

I like convenience with busy schedules. So, when I find veggies already cup up in the market, I’m happy to grab them and be able to save steps when making dinner for the family. Most markets carry cut up squash in the produce section. If you can’t find this you can use frozen squash.

What is Tempering and How to Temper Eggs

temper_eggs_fix

 

First things first, tempering is a method of combining two ingredients that are different temperatures together without having the mixture curdle. For example, making a pudding or pastry cream, you have your cream mixture on the heat and now it’s time to add the eggs. If you just pour them in you will end up with scrambled eggs or curdled eggs. Not too appetizing.

Now, here’s the way to temper the eggs to make for a creamy, dreamy sauce or cream: Continue reading

Not Too Sweet, Guilt Free Sweet Potato Pie

Every holiday, someone always makes their wonderful recipe for sweet potato pie. The problem is most recipes could have over 400 calories for a small slice and about 20 grams of fat! Way too much! I have come up with this version that has been a hit with my family and friends and no one knows it’s lower in calories and lower in fat. Oh, and by the way, it’s made with baby food sweet potatoes.

 

The canned sweet potatoes are loaded with sugar which adds calories to the recipe, but baby veggies and fruit are just that: veggies and fruit with no added sugar. It’s also so much easier to use than cooking potatoes, especially since we are all pressed for time. So, try my recipe. I think you will all agree it’s delish! I serve this as a dessert like pumpkin pie: cold with a dollop of whipped topping or light whipped cream.
