Opposites Attract

June 30, 2011

Foodgawker has become a new obsession for me. That’s where I found the weirdest, most delicious salad recipe.

Here’s how it goes (I know it sounds weird, but give it a go. You won’t regret it.)

Goat Cheese and Scrambled Egg Salad:


Spinach (uncooked leafs)

Goat Cheese

Egg whites/two eggs


Wheat bread

Scramble eggs and put them in a bowl with spinach and goat cheese. Add cut up onion. Toast one piece of bread and cut up into bite size pieces and add.

Now eat. So good!

What a cutie – PutAForkInMe

Now for the opposite of the delicious salad: Cake Balls

Like I said in a previous post, I am trying really hard not to eat unhealthy, sugary deliciousness. However, I never said I wouldn’t make any desserts for other people.

After reading post after post on Bakerella, I decided I wanted to make cake pops for the Fourth of July. But, being who I am, I thought it would be in my best interest to do a little experimenting before hand.

They are so easy and so cute! If you have a party and need to bring something you’ll look like a champ toting these in and only you and I will know that they were easy peasy!


One box of cake mix

One container of icing

Chocolate for candy coating

Toppings (sprinkles, icing, cookie crumbs, whatever you want!)

Cake pop sticks – you can find this at any craft store in the baking section.

Bake the cake according to the instructions on the box. When the cake is done, remove the inside contents and place in a large bowl.

Here comes the fun part, pulverize the cake — you don’t want any large chunks. When you’re done, add 3/4 of the icing container (too much makes the cake too moist and it will be hard to make into a ball shape.)

Ball up the delicious concoction and place on wax paper. Let the balls sit in a freezer for at least 15 minutes.

In the meantime, melt down your chocolate. The easiest way to do this is to boil water and place a bowl over the water. Then pour your chocolate into the bowl and it will melt. (Be careful not to get it too hot, chocolate can be very temperamental.)

First, dip the stick into the chocolate, then put the stick in the cake ball. Let that sit for a moment and harden then stick the entire cake ball into the chocolate.

If you want to add sprinkles, add while the chocolate is still hot.

Let the cake balls cool and store in the refrigerator until its time to eat.
