Panko + Parmesan Baked Asparagus "Fries"

Something I love seeing on Pinterest are all of renditions of "fries" people come up with. Carrot fries...zucchini fries...and now, I've made asparagus fries. These tasty spears give you that same satisfying crunch without all of the calories and I am completely obsessed with them. They are perfect as a side dish or on their own (but to tell you the truth, you probably won't want to share!).

Take Two Tuesday: Blueberry, Lavender Cupcakes with a Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting

My second Take Two Tuesday post is featuring an early W.A.L.T. treat: Blueberry, Lavender Cupcakes with a Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting. I know, it's a mouthful, and your mouth will be full once you bake these up. The egg whites give these cupcakes almost an angel cake texture and they will truly just melt in your mouth. I made these for Mother's Day this year and my mom didn't even notice the Tiffany's necklace that I got her. They're that scrumptious. Anyways, I thought this is a perfect redo seeing that my original post has been getting a great amount of traffic over the past couple of months. Hope you all enjoy!

{Skinny} Asian Coleslaw with Peanut Powder Dressing

At every family gathering, we order the most delicious Asian coleslaw with peanut dressing. It's so good that I couldn't wait until the next gathering to have this dish and decided to make my own with a "skinny" lil' twist by utilizing my newest obsession: peanut powder. It's pretty much peanut butter in a powder form, and all you need to do is add water and voila! peanut butter with half the calories! This coleslaw is perfect for all of those summer BBQ's and is sure to be hit with all of your hungry gatherers! Enjoy!
