Bake: Cookie Dough Stuffed Oreos

cookiedoughoreos_hero

So I follow a lot of food bloggers on Instagram.  Most of them are pretty influential in the food blogging world and often have companies send them packages of their goods.  I always get a little jealous when I see those packages and wish that companies were sending me food!  One day I remember in particular was when a significant number of the people I follow received cookie dough stuffed Oreos.  They looked pretty amazing.  I was even more amazed however, when I read Love and Olive Oil’s post a few days later about how she didn’t get any Oreos either.  Instead of just sitting around thinking “Oh, that’s too bad,” she whipped a batch herself.

I didn’t exactly make this up myself (I just used Lindsay’s recipe), but I was certainly glad to have a batch myself.

Cook: Crispy BBQ Shrimp Flatbread

 

bbqshrimpflatbread_hero

I usually think 100% whole wheat baked goods taste like cardboard.  Luckily, this isn’t one of those times. This 100% whole wheat crusts bakes up perfectly and pairs really well with the shrimp and BBQ sauce.

I brought this to a friends party, cut it up in slices and served it as a snack.

You could also serve this with a nice green salad for a healthy dinner option.  Either way, it is bound to be a non-cardboard tasting crowd-pleasing favorite.

Bake: Applesauce Truffles

Have you ever taken something healthy and made it just outright decadent?

applesaucetruffles_hero

I did!  I made some applesauce muffins the other day, but they didn’t last too long.  I quickly crumbled them up and made this dessert that truly hits the spot.  Its another one of those super satisfying desserts that you only need a small bite, so these are perfect.  Plus, if the inside is kind-of healthy, that makes the dessert healthy too, right?

I can say I tried anyway.
