The following is a repost of what is becoming one of our most popular recipes. After a 2015 trip to the nearest Starbucks, which was at the time almost 50 miles away we did a calorie re-make of one of our favorite drinks Caramel Frappuccino. Behold…… Skinny – Caramel Frappuccino !
Today we have a Starbucks less than a mile away, but they kept all the calories in our favorite drinks 🙄 we still enjoy the real deal but we also enjoy this recipe, and we hope you do too!!
PS….updated picture too!!!
This post is gonna be a real quickie……Starbucks is the bomb for coffee……well, at least Tim and I think so. One of our favorites is the Caramel Frappuccino………but with a Grande coming in at about 380 calories……… yikes! Talk about drinking your calories.
When I saw the recipe for Skinny – Caramel Frappuccino from Averie Cooks, and it boasts only 50 calories…….we were in!!
We tried it yesterday, as a light dessert after our Grilled Spaghetti and Cheese Sandwich, which was not light, but excellent! Continue reading “Skinny – Caramel Frappuccino”
I have never in all my years had a Crème Brûlée! Where has this dessert been all my life?
Crème Brûlée also known as burnt cream, is a dessert consisting of a rich custard base topped with a layer of hardened caramelized sugar.

If you are looking for a unique pizza, Shrimp Scampi Pizza is it!!
Valentines Day is just around the corner, and of course, romantic recipes are all over the internet. Shrimp Scampi pops up a lot. So that got me to thinking…..I know dangerous right!!
Tim and I are not real big on large romantic gestures but we do enjoy a nice meal, and we LOVE PIZZA!!!!!! A combination of two yummy things, how could you go wrong. Let’s just say you can’t.
I looked for Shrimp Scampi Pizza on Pinterest, and while they all looked good, they were all missing the pasta. You can’t have Shrimp Scampi with pasta; it’s unheard of!
We added it, and I don’t wanna brag or anything, but it was a stroke of genius. Shrimp is the star of the show, but the pasta was hardly second fiddle. I think they were co-stars.
Juicy, succulent shrimp, with white wine, garlic, shallot, butter sauce, tossed with angel hair pasta, super yummy. But put all of that on a crispy pizza crust…..delicious!!!
