Strawberry Carrots for Easter -------- Melt orange chocolate in a glass 1-cup measuring cup. Add a tiny bit of Crisco to make it smoother. Dunk a whole strawberry to coat. Place on waxed paper. From a cake frosting tube or a squirt bottle make thin horizontal lines. Refrigerate. Orange chocolate may be available at Michaels, or create your own.
ricotta & honey crostini There’s nothing wrong with store-bought ricotta, but if you’re feeling in the mood for a DIY version, try your hand at homemade ricotta (it’s easier than you think!). To assemble the Ricotta and Honey Crostini, simply top toasted baguette slices with the creamy cheese, a thick drizzle of honey and a crack of fresh black pepper. Plan on 1 cup of ricotta per 8 toasts.
Skinny Pool-side Dip: 1 red pepper, 2 jalepenos (unseeded), 1 can of corn, 1/2 can diced olives, 16 oz fat-free cream cheese (softened), and 1 packet Hidden Valley Ranch dip seasoning mix. Serve with crackers. Delicious!!
