Ready, Set, Weekend with The Garden of Eatin’

I’m back again this week with an awesome dessert that will “wow” your family and guests!  Lately, I have been trying to copycat recipes and transform them from high fat to low fat.  Well this is a classic brûlée that is super easy to make, 4 ingredients, pretty to serve and won’t tamper with your waistline.
Here’s what you need to do…
brulee1
10 medium-large strawberries, quartered
1 cup of fresh blueberries ( you can mix and match your fruits here….nothing wrong with getting creative and just using whatever you have in the fridge, I would suggest berries and stone fruit for a good time)
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt, 2% or whole or low fat, (you choose the fat percentage depending on what size your skinny jeans are and whether or not you can’t close your zipper lately)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons + 2 tablespoons turbinado sugar, divided (* if you can’t find or don’t have Turbinado Sugar you can always substitute brown sugar….if you don’t have brown sugar you will need to haul yourself into the car and go to the grocery store unless you want to attempt to make this with white sugar….I’m pretty sure you can torch just about anything)

1. In three medium ramekins or six small ones, fill each about 3/4 of the way up with your berries.

Prepping to go back to school

school1
Some of my absolute favorite memories as a kid are back to school shopping. Does that sound weird? The smell of brand new pencil crayons, a brand new pencil case and that fresh lined notebook. Ah, makes me want to do it all over again! Oh and that’s what I did this weekend. With my lil man…who happens to be going into Kindergarten in two weeks. Holy cow. Where did the time go?! My baby is growing up! Damn.
school2
Well with growing up comes opinions and that’s exactly what he had when we were picking out his backpack, pencil case and school supplies. There is a character associated with absolutely everything. Minions, Avengers, The Ninja Turtles – you name it!
Gavin chose his characters and pencils, crayons, markers and a notebook to fill his bag. Don’t forget the glue sticks and children’s scissors.

Drinks of the Summer

When my son gets off the camp bus he usual marches by me kindly asking for a snack and a “mocktail”.
Ok, yes. Houston, we have a problem.
Well so what. We like our cocktails around here! And everything we do….can be made into a mocktail. No liquor, fun for the kids!
Here are my favorite picks from this summer’s libations…
For Starters…
We frequent the farm stands almost daily during the summer. My son has an affinity towards champagne grapes. Sound so fancy don’t they? They are teeny meeny baby grapes. Very cute actually. Whatever kind of fresh fruit that we get we end up blending into a breakfast smoothie. It will give you quite the boost.

As the day progresses I hit the kitchen with my Chef (Gavin) and start chopping fruit. We use fruit to make fun cocktails or sometimes just to garnish.

Out of this World

alien2
Every August I host a BBQ for my hubby’s side of the family. We all gather together, mostly from NYC some from Charlotte, and pretty much do nothing but eat, drink and eat more. Ok and swim a bit too.
For every family BBQ I choose a fun theme to use for the menu and some decor.
This year, we were celebrating a 70th birthday for Uncle Steve so we went with Aliens…yes, yes, he believes. And for one afternoon..so did the rest of us.

In planning the question was how do you make Aliens, chic?
For starters, my Auntie Marissa, Queen of crafts is in town so I pulled a great image from Pinterest and had her roll with it. How genius is this to wrap tinfoil around a paper lantern? EEE, AAA.
I love how we put up together our solar system! I also included stars in the decor where ever I could…

Mandy’s Meal & More

I don’t like brunch…said no one ever!
Seriously speaking…I actually don’t love eggs. I’ve had to get really creative in making them enjoyable for myself.
What better way to ensure salty and tasty goodness? Brie!
Melty, oozy, delicious brie.
Check it out…
Easy Brie-zy Omelette
eggs3
Serves 1
1 cup of egg whites (I use the already separated kind)
2 slices of smoked salmon
1-2 slices of Brie
Pea shoots (or you could use spinach, arugula etc)
1 Tsp Mustard (I used dill mustard, any grainy kind will do)
1 Tsp Coconut Oil

Oil up the pan on Medium-low heat
Fill the pan with your egg whites, for about 2 minutes (use your judgment here)
Fill the Omelette with the brie, fold and flip eggs onto the other side
After about a minute your eggs should be ready to “dress”
Top with a thin layer of mustard, smoked salmon and pea shoots
Brunch is served!
