These are the ramblings of a self-described wheat, grain and gluten-free “gourmet girl” that loves to cook and eat good food. I love creating and sharing recipes and photographing “beautiful food”. In July 2012, I eliminated wheat, grains and added sugar from my diet and rediscovered real, whole fresh foods again and effortlessly lost 65+ pounds. Join me in my wheat, grain and gluten-free journey. See how easy it is to enjoy grain free gourmet, one meal at a time! Welcome to my blog. Enjoy!

Saturday Breakfast - Eggs, Bacon & Strawberry Cheese "Not-Danish"
This morning hubby and I got up early and took a walk. It was bright, sunny and only 72 degrees outside. It's still supposed to get hot today, but we finally had a cool morning to get out and enjoy. When we got back, I made scrambled eggs with cheese and bacon for breakfast. I reached for my plain Greek yogurt to swirl some of my Strawberry Chia Jam in, and while I was reaching for it, I noticed my carton of whole milk ricotta sitting beside it with only about 1/4 cup left inside. Don't you just hate wondering what to do with your leftover ricotta? I decided to put my Greek yogurt back and instead pulled out the leftover ricotta and swirled my strawberry jam into it instead. It was AMAZING! Yes, as in "I liked it even better than fruit swirled through plain Greek yogurt!" It was smooth, creamy, rich without any tartness. It was like enjoying a Strawberry Cheese Danish without the danish part! LOL From now on, I will purposely look forward to leftover ricotta to enjoy this way. Try it next time you find yourself wondering what to do with your leftover ricotta. I snapped a quick photo of my breakfast of eggs, bacon and Strawberry Cheese "Not-Danish". Enjoy!

I've become a real ricotta fan, myself, and this is another amazing way to use it!
Hot weather has finally caught up with us. We'll be in the frying pan this weekend and for much of next week. Well, it *is* the middle of August, I guess!
Hopefully your "hot weather streak" will be short lived. It did get quite warm here again this afternoon but I'm so glad I got outside and enjoyed the cool weather this morning. :-)
