Strawberry Pretzel Salad

I need to start this off by saying that I don't understand why this is considered a "salad". It doesn't have any of the properties of a salad. It is 100% dessert.

The basis of this recipe is from one on One of the reviewers rated it as one star because it was so unhealthy. For serious? She even admits in the review that it's delicious! I need to point out that the original version of this about the same health level as many other desserts that involve a buttery crust with cheesy filling. Cheesecake comes to mind. Well, my version is for her. I used low fat cream cheese, fat free cool whip, and sugar free jello. I wouldn't say that it's healthy, but it has fewer calories than the original recipe.

Bacon Asparagus Mini Quiche

IMG_1272Today is mother's day, so I want to start by saying that while everyone out there is filling up my facebook feed with how their moms are the best, they are all incorrect. Because my mom is.
Anyway, on to food! Today I made mini-quiche which are one of the classiest hors d'oeuvres in existence. The best part of quiche in general is that it tastes good both warm and at room temperature, so it's something that can be made in advance and sit out without serious consequences to flavor. They also freeze extremely well for future use, and the kind that you can buy in the freezer section at the grocery store are generally pretty decent.

Moscow Mule

Warm weather has come to Delaware and with it, a desire to drink in the sunshine. One of my current favorite drinks is the Moscow Mule. It's light and refreshing and not too sweet (which is something I take issue with in many mixed beverages). If you're a fan of delicious lime flavor, you'll enjoy this drink!
