Quick & Easy Broiled Grapefruit // Tried and Tasty

I’m always on the lookout for a low-sugar snack or dessert to curb my sweet to. Boy do I have a serious sweet tooth. When I was at the grocery store the other day in the produce section the grapefruit caught my eye. I haven’t had a grapefruit in a really long time. I figured I’d pick one up and give it a whirl. Somehow I remembered seeing somewhere a broiled grapefruit. So I gave it a try. Loved it! It’s just a touch better than a raw grapefruit because the sugar is melted over the juicy flesh of the fruit. YUM!

Quick & Easy Broiled Grapefruit // Tried and TastyI know many can enjoy this fruit without any sugar. I can’t dig that. It’s way too tart for me. But add a little sprinkle of sugar and I’m golden. As you will see in this recipe, it doesn’t even have to be much, but just a little bit to take the edge off the tart. The other great thing is that this is wonderful warm right out from under the broiler or even after it has been chilled. Both ways are equally delicious. I like to have half now and save the other half for later. What a great guilt free treat right?

Food Network Lemon Curd Recipe // Tried and Tasty I have a pretty serious love for all things lemon. I love the tang, I love the tart, I love the way the flavor enhances anything it touches. In fact, we buy our lemons in bulk at Costco. At LEAST two bags a month (if not three). Most commonly we use them for our Lemonade Cleanse that we drink daily. But I also love to cook and bake with them. My favorite recipes include my Lemon Glazed Blueberry Scones, Lemon Pull-Aparts, and Lemonade Cupcakes to name a few. Not only do I love lemon anything I also LOVE the Food Network! Right? Who doesn’t? When I searched for a recipe I knew without a doubt that I wouldn’t be let down with this recipe from Ina Garten (more commonly known as The Barefoot Contessa)!

I have some really fun recipes planned with this Food Network Lemon Curd Recipe! Well, I had to get past licking it off the spoon. You almost had to pry my away because it was so delicious. I figured, if it is this amazing alone, just imagine how wonderful it will be IN recipes!! I can’t wait to continue to find more fun things to do with this. What do you think? Anything special you’d like to see? Maybe with scones? Or what about on top of a cheesecake? Oh my! That sounds DELIGHTFUL!

Quick & Easy Asparagus // Tried and Tasty Asparagus is underrated and underused in our house. I seriously LOVE it! In fact, I was reminded how much I love it when I recently went out to dinner with a couple of girlfriends and my dish came with it. It was cooked so perfectly I almost wanted to ask for seconds as I finished off the last spear. It was absolutely perfect. I’m in the process of creating a ‘copycat’ of that meal because it is my favorite and I can’t afford to visit the restaurant on a weekly basis. I can’t wait to share it with you (once I’ve got it perfected of course)!

Quick & Easy Asparagus // Tried and Tasty

When I think of asparagus I think of warm weather. Is it a warm weather vegetable? Certainly.. aren’t most of them? Anyhoo. With the temps teasing us in my neck of the woods of springtime (and then taunting us with snow intermittently) I was just itching to make this. This recipe is just as easy as my Roasted Parmesan Asparagus recipe that I use as my go-to typically.  I enjoyed this with a parmesan crusted tilapia fillet, but my Honey-Mustard Salmon with Roasted Asparagus recipe is also pretty great. When I recently went to the Harmons Blogger Event – City Creek we chopped it in bits and added it to our risotto. It was amazing! However you prepare it, surely it will be wonderful.

Sandwich // Tried and TastyThere are times in life you just want a good sandwich. Is that too much to ask? Nope! This simple sandwich that I’ve got for you today is not only delicious but I’ve been introduced to a brand that I’ve fallen head over heels in love with! How have I never purchased Boar’s Head meat or cheeses before? You’ve got me! The other night I went to my local Harmons grocery store to pick up a few things and stopped by the deli counter. First of all, I love the service I get (and no, this is not a sponsored post – I was just that impressed). The gal helping me out was so helpful and so nice. I tasted a couple of things and bought five or six different meats and cheeses. In love I tell you. Not only were they delicious BUT Boar’s Head meats and cheeses do not contain fillers, by-products, artificial colors or flavors, trans fats and they are gluten-free. HELLO! Doesn’t that just scream YVONNE? Why yes, yes it does!

Sandwich // Tried and Tasty

I could hardly wait to get home and make a sandwich with my yummy new discoveries! It’s simple. You hardly need a recipe. Every once in a while it’s nice to have a reminder…’oh yeah, that would make a good combo for a sandwich!’. I know I feel that way. I forget about some of the simplest meal ideas until someone reminds me. I enjoyed this with a bowl of fresh pineapple and was one happy camper. I hope you enjoy too!

Honey Almond Granola Recipe // Tried and TastyI’ve got a thing for a good granola recipe. Like for real. I LOVE granola! It is so easy to make ahead and grab-n-go for hurried mornings. Even if your mornings aren’t rushed {as mine usually are} this is definitely a fantastic way to start your day. It all started with my Easy Toss and Bake Granola recipe that really got me on the granola kick. Since then I’ve made Coconut Butter Granola, Coconut Almond Granola, and Honey Apple Granola. All of them are really delicious – BUT – I have to say, I think this Honey Almond Granola recipe tops them all. In fact, I’m certain that this is my new favorite. 

Honey Almond Granola Recipe // Tried and TastyI’ve learned that I can’t just make one batch at a time. I’ve at least got to double it because it flies off the counter so fast I don’t even have time to package it away for the week hardly. So I made a double batch to be sure that I’m covered through the week. Already it’s proven to be so handy for me to just grab as I’m headed out the door to work. Really though, if you are looking for a keeper granola recipe look no farther. This is the recipe for you.
