I love cheese danishes!
yum! [photo source click on photo]
Each danish is about 300 calories. Also, I am not huge on frosting. Although I love the cheese danish part. I googled to see if there were any recipes that were somewhat healthier. Well, I found a recipe that really isn’t that much healthier, but it has less sugar as it just has powdered sugar.
Here it is the Lower Fat Cream Cheese Danish Recipe:
- 8 reduced fat crescent rolls
- 1 egg white
- 8 ounces low fat cream cheese
- 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- cream together egg white, cream cheese, and vanilla
- lay half the can of crescent rolls in the bottom of a square baking pan lined with parchment paper, pressing together seams in rolls to make one sheet
- spread cream cheese mixuture atop crescent roll crust
- put other half crescent rolls on top
- bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until browned on top
- sprinkle with powdered sugar while warm
- you can also add a little sugar or splenda to filling and I use egg beaters rather than regular egg white
- you may also mix powdered sugar with a couple drops of milk and drizzle over the top for a glaze
It doesn’t look like the one above but it makes a savory danish that fed my craving. It also would be a great dish if we ever have breakfast Guests with all of our empty rooms in our house!
it has 196 calories per piece if you cut it into 8 pieces.
My husband lately made the comment that Facebook has become a big recipe site. He’s partially true as there have been tons of recipes that have been floating news feeds. This is one that I actually liked (and spammed someone’s news feed) and enjoyed it!
Melt in your Mouth Chicken
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup Greek yogurt -plain
1 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 tsp seasoning salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Spread mixture over chicken breasts, bake at 375 degrees for 45 mins–Absolutely Delish!
It was easy to make. I coated the chicken breasts on both sides. Although it says just to spread on top. It was easy to make and delicious. Only other change we had was that we used Vanilla Greek yogurt as it’s what we bought by mistake instead of plain!
I also sprayed the bottom of the glass pan I cooked it in just as I was nervous about it sticking. It tasted a tiny bit like fried chicken but is a LOT healthier!
It was delicious, easy, and a nice change of pace!
Our Bailey-boo is afraid of cars. We try to take him on walks outside his yard when there is the least amount of traffic. We live in an area with a bunch of other subdivisions with walking paths. One of my favorite pathways is through all these oak trees. I LOVE it. It’s one of my favorite paths to run, it’s shaded, makes me feel like I’m not near a city at all, and is a nice change.
This weekend I convinced my husband to get Bailey in the car with us and drive the 1 minute it takes to swap over so he wouldn’t have to cross a major road with traffic. (My husband was totally game as soon as I suggested it, so convinced isn’t really the right word, he loves Bailey so much!)
Then we were off! What did my perfect puppy do?
stayed on the sidewalk…
the entire time
Silly puppy! He is picky with what he steps on, so it took some convincing but eventually I got him to run through the leaves a bit as he just wanted to follow me and see where I was going.
He did his strut with his tail held high and just seemed to enjoy his change in his routine.
Although I think he was a bit hot and tired when he got home, as he did his best seal impression! He also got a treat of doggie ice cream and proceeded to pick it up out of his bowl and push it around the floor to lick it…
I love my Bailey (and all my cats!)
Yup, that’s right. I’m officially insane. Tonight I signed up for not one, but TWO races.
I am officially registered for the Tower of Terror 10 Miler in October to get my pacing requirement for the big event… an item off my bucket list… an event that may cause me to sit down and cry mid way and not be able to get back up…
the 2014 Walt Disney World Marathon.
I am so
terrifed scared stupid nervous excited!
Now to finish figuring out my training plan during our 2 week Europe adventure in October… as no offense, I want to see the world, I’m not running in the cold there! So my runs will have to be shorter. However, I can worry about that closer to. My goal between now and then is to just keep running 3 times a week and I will be happy!
Today we did a lot of errands! We needed a few things from Home Depot or lowes! Since we bought our house I haven’t minded stopping as much and even have a Home Depot credit card. It’s probably the most I’ve ever been in one in my life and I don’t normally mind it.
One of our errands was to get more propane for our grill. We went to use it a few months ago and it didn’t work so we thought our tank was empty. We got to the place to fill it and the woman filling it said it wasn’t entirely empty. Hmm. Red flag.
We got back to our house and the grill didn’t work. We suddenly discovered a hole in the hose. No biggie buy a replacement. Except they don’t make that model anymore. Back to Home Depot we go to try and find something that works. Except nothing fits once we get home.
My husband has been looking forward to grilling this entire week. So I did what any other loving wife would do… found a sale for one at lowes.com that was available in the store by our house. Nicer than one at home depot. Done! I wasn’t planning on one, but life is about adjustments!
all set up! our new grill!
I had hit my limit for home improvement stores for the day so I sent my husband off with the blessing to buy one. He checked it out and felt it would work (and he liked it!) Took one that was preassembled and we got to grill tonight!
Sometimes in marriage you just do what makes the other happy. I am glad I found a deal I can make work into our budget and see him smile! (The delicious food helps too!)
