This week was all about showing you foods that are near and dear to my heart. I brought you to my absolute favorite pizza place on the planet and taught you how to make traditional potato pancakes just like the ones I grew up with. In case you missed any of this week’s eats…
Let’s review, shall we?
- Light Summer Pasta with Ricotta & Fresh Veggies
Skip the boxed pasta; try this healthy, creamy, and cheesy summer pasta instead.
- Peanut Butter Brownie Cookies
Is it a brownie or a cookie?
- My Favorite Pizza on Earth: Len & Jo’s
Take a trip with me to check out the single best slice of pizza on the planet.
- Classic Potato Pancakes
An absolutely irresistible Polish tradition.
- Mini Strawberry Mousse Pies with Golden Oreo Crusts
A perfect summer dessert in a personalized size.
I don’t think this week could’ve been any more delicious! Plus, between the pasta and the pies, things are starting to feel real summery around Smart Cookie.
What was your favorite post of the week???
If you like Smart Cookie on Facebook, then you might’ve seen how excited I was when this baby came in the mail:
It’s a can opener! I saw it on QVC, and had to have it. Besides being cute, it’s the easiest to use can opener I’ve tried, and I don’t have to go around the can multiple times to remove the lid. One time around, and I’m good to go! Plus, how can you not smile whenever you break this baby out?
So what else is new at Smart Cookie? Well, I’ve been at my new job for a couple weeks now, and my cooking and baking endeavors are no secret to my co-workers. In fact, I’m still convinced that part of the reason they hired me was in the hopes I would bring some of my delicious treats to work for them. Well, lucky for them, I am always in need of taste-testers. This week, I brought them something extra special. Let’s just say BIG things are happening to cookies in the Smart Cookie Kitchen.
Expect a recipe next week! Along with that sweet treat, you can also expect something on the healthier side. I’m dishing out one hell of a pizza for under 200 calories, and it’s going to blow your mind away!
As for what’s currently in the works, I’ll be in the kitchen tomorrow churning out one crazy awesome ice cream cake (no pun intended!). But more on that later.
See you on Monday!
P.S. This is the story of my life:
