Follow Friday – Lemons for Lulu

follow-friday-tasty-fork

Happy Friday!! It’s a good thing you guys can’t see me today. I’ve had a headache for two days and I’m just not my usually smiley self. I’m blaming the crazy weather. Change of weather can give people headaches, right??

Lemons for Lulu — doesn’t that make you feel warm and happy?!! It sure does for me! Tanya, the Ohio native behind Lemons for Lulu, will make you smile everyday… just look at her food. All of her meals are things she makes for her family. After stalking her website, I really wish I was young enough to be adopted. I’d love to have a place at her table! Tanya grew up loving food and all of her recipes show it.

I’ve selected 5 recipes from Lemons for Lulu to share with you. Get ready to feel hungry!

Sriracha Beer Cheese

Sriracha-Beer-Cheese Beer cheese is an awesome dip as is… but adding sriracha takes it to another level! I love the heat and flavor from sriracha.

S’mores Chocolate Donut

SMores-Donut-1024x737

If I woke up one morning and this donut was waiting for me, I’d jump for joy. I love anything s’mores!

Mediterranean Dip

I love this dip! It can be eaten with crackers, bread or veggies.

Grilled BBQ Chicken Pizza with Cherry Chipotle BBQ Sauce

IMG_5781-300x200

I expressed last week I love BBQ chicken pizza. I’ve always wanted to grill pizza dough but I’ve been scared of messing it up. This recipe makes me want to give it a try. The reward looks amazing!

Red Velvet Caramel Shortbread Bars

Follow Friday: Back For Seconds

follow-friday-tasty-fork

#FollowFriday is one of my favorite posts to share with all of you! I really enjoying finding great blogs. There are so many creative people out there and it’s so fun to connect with others who share the same passions.

I’ve been holding out on all of you. I’ve been crushing on Back for Seconds for, like, 4 months. Stephanie is amazing! She develops recipes and takes amazing pictures. I’m not sure how she finds the time to delight us with sweet treats; Stephanie has twin boys and a little girl. Not to mention a hair stylist and makes jewelry. She’s the ultimate girly girl, a Mom, a wife and lover of anything with glitter.

I’m going to assume you’ve thrown in the towel on your healthy eating resolution and you’re ready to swap out a boring salad for some delicious treats. Back for Seconds will have you eating sugar in no time… but in case if you are still eating healthy, be sure to check out all of Stephanie’s Skinny Recipes. For the month of January, a majority of her recipes leaned on the lighter side. She has something for everyone!

Here are my top 5 recipes from Back for Seconds!

1. Four Ingredient SKINNY Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse

 

Skinny-Mousse

 

See, this is the SKINNY stuff I was talking about. It’s totally possible to eat amazing desserts and they aren’t loaded with calories. THANK YOU, Stephanie for sharing this recipe! I’ll totally be making this soon.

2. Peanut Butter S’more Bars

How can s’mores taste even better?? Add peanut butter! I love this cookie bar. And the best part – it’s no bake!

3. Coconut Carrot Mini Cakes

 

ccmc2-1024x680

 

This recipe isn’t the usual carrot cake recipe. Stephanie doesn’t care of raisins or nuts, but I doubt you’ll miss it. These mini cakes have coconut and a to-die-for cream cheese glaze. YUM!

4. Brownie Stuffed Cookies

I love brownies. My hubby loves cookies. Can you guess what I’ll be baking this weekend?? :)

5. Fully Loaded Hot Fudge Bars
