Whole Wheat Pizza Dough // Tried and TastyIn my quest to eliminate white flour in my cooking I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how well you can swap whole wheat flour for white flour. My favorite pizza dough recipe is one that I got from my friend many, many years ago. The moment she shared her Homemade Pizza Dough recipe with me I thought I’d never need another recipe again. Since then I’ve changed my ways. I decided to use the same recipe and just swap out the flours and cross my fingers the results would be equally as delicious. 

It worked beautifully! I love that I can still enjoy my favorite dishes and sub out some of the unhealthy ingredients for healthy ingredients and have a fantastic meal. Pizza is one of my favorite ‘cheat’ meals and it’s nice that I can indulge without feeling guilty. As great as this dough recipe is, my Whole Wheat Pizza Crust is fantastic as well. Top it with my Pizza Sauce or Spaghetti Tomato Pizza Sauce and you will fall in love at first bite.  Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Salmon & Avocado Stuffed Lettuce Wraps // Tried and TastyIt’s the new year! Is one of your resolutions to be healthy? I’m excited to bring you fantastic healthy recipes that are not only delicious, but also easy! I don’t know about you, but time is something I always seem to be running short of and if I can save a little bit of hassle in the kitchen I am all over it! My Healthy Cashew Chicken Salad Lettuce Wraps from last year are one of my most favorite recipes. I decided to give it a little twist and try salmon instead of chicken. I’m a huge seafood fan and anytime I can incorporate it into a lunch or dinner I’m all for it!

Salmon is one of the easiest fish to prepare. Normally, I would prefer to grill my filet, but since we are in the dead of winter I decided to oven bake it instead. I just placed my fish on a lightly greased sheet of aluminum foil, seasoned with salt and pepper, and baked at 450 for 12-15 minutes. The end result was beautiful! So moist and tender. Next to grilling, I’d definitely say that would be my second most favorite way to prepare salmon. I love the idea of the lettuce wrap because as much as I love me a good croissant – it’s sure nice to cut the carbs! Give this a try next time you’ve got some leftover salmon. It’s fantastic!

Creamy Spinach Tomato Linguine // Tried and TastyIn the November issue of Cooking Light I saw the recipe for Creamy Mascarpone and Spinach Linguine and it immediately caught my attention. I’ve been dying to make a version of it ever since. With the new year upon us, on the minds of everyone I know is healthy eating! I’m so excited to continue to bring you fantastic healthy recipes not just the first couple months of 2015, but all throughout the year. I don’t know about you, but my long term goal is to be healthy, and I will help do my part by giving you great tasty recipes to keep you on track!

Although this recipe DOES have cream cheese, for the entire recipe there is only 3 tbsp. That’s hardly enough to shake a stick at and just enough to give this dish the touch of creaminess that makes it oh so delicious. It’s no secret I love gorgeous food. Tell me you don’t look at this recipe and just swoon? The cherry tomatoes give it a bright & beautiful pop that make my heart skip a beat! I’m so strange when it comes to food hee hee, but tell me I’m not alone in this please? Serve this with your favorite loaf of bread hot out of the oven and you’ve got yourself a delicious and guilt-free meal.

Top 10 Recipes of 2014 // Tried and TastyIt’s the last day of the year and I can hardly believe 2014 is coming to a close. I must say it has been a pretty fantastic year and there were so many delicious recipes. I was pleasantly surprised to find which recipes came in as the top ten most viewed that were posted this year. If I had to pick favorites from all of my recipes, a good chunk made it in to this list. I suppose that means we have similar taste! Without further adieu shall we take a look at what you were most interested in?

Chocolate Dipped Toasted Hazelnut Biscotti // Tried and TastyI know Christmas is over, but I still celebrate for the remainder of the year. So although this is a ‘holiday’ recipe… I’m still determined to share it with you! You may know of my love of biscotti from my Sensational Cinnamon Chip Biscotti or Whole Wheat Cinnamon Chip Almond Biscotti. I know it’s one of those things people either like or they don’t. I’m in the camp that loves them!! I first made them at the Lagrima Vanilla Bloggers Night last year and knew immediately they would be something I’d want to make again and again.

Back when I shared with you my No Bake Peanut Butter Pie I talked to you a little bit about Lily’s Sweets chocolate. Well not only have I fallen in love with their Dark Chocolate Premium Baking Chips (which have no sugar added, are all natural, vegan, AND non GMO) but I’ve now also fallen in love with their Holiday Chocolate Bars!! I was able to try the Cinnamon Dark & Hazelnut & Milk and loved BOTH of them!  For this recipe I melted down the Hazelnut & Milk which complimented perfectly the toasted hazelnut biscotti. Lily’s Sweets also has a couple of milk chocolate bars (non-holiday flavors) as well as well as a few dark chocolate bars (non-holiday flavors) that I’m sure are fantastic!
