Garlicky Pizzeria Style Knots

Happy Thursday W+A friends! Tonight we are headed to the city for a tasting and of course New York is still holding on to that winter weather. We were teased with a few nice days last week, which gave us a taste of spring time weather. This week we wanted to use up some of our frozen three ingredient dough. Now that we've tested it out on bagels and pizzas, garlic knots were the next obvious choice. These were so easy to make and we paired them with some zucchini noodles and sauce. They are also a great lunchtime snack, toasted up in the morning with some butter or can be enjoyed with a big salad or soup. Here is everything you'll need to make these garlicky guys: 

Ingredients 
1 c of self rising flour 
1 c of plain nonfat Greek yogurt (drained) 
3/4 tsp of salt 
2 tsp of baking powder 
1 tbsp of olive oil 
1 tbsp of butter 
2-3 cloves of garlic (chopped)
2 tbsp of grated Parmesan cheese
1 tbsp of fresh or dry parsley (chopped)

Directions 
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and lightly spray a baking sheet with nonstick olive oil spray. Mix together flour, baking powder and salt. Use a spatula to add in the yogurt and mix until dough starts to form. Flour your hands and knead dough. Add more flour if necessary and roll into one large bowl. Divide your dough into 8 small pieces and roll them into sticks about 8 inches long. Loop you dough and create a knot. Place your knots on a baking sheet and brush tops with olive oil. Bake for about 17-20 minutes until tops start to turn a golden brown. While you knots bake, heat your skillet with your butter and add your garlic. Sauté for about 4 minutes until garlic starts to get golden. Turn off heat and toss in your garlic knots giving your pan a few tosses until your knots are covered. Take an excess butter and garlic and brush onto the tops of the knots. Plate and sprinkle with parsley and grated cheese.

Healthy Everything Bagels + Sunday Prep

Happy Sunday W+A friends! It was a frigid weekend filled with freezing temps, but overall we had a great few days (including snow days) to relax and get some food shopping done. I've been saving a few recipes up for some weekend trial and error attempts, but we tried our hands at some healthy everything bagels and they came out SO good! I know you see a lot of our indulgent eats on Whiskey + Aprons Instagram and Facebook pages, but believe it or not John and I eat very healthy during the week and save our splurges for the weekend. Sunday mornings call for bagels so we figured we'd attempt to whip up a guilt free version right in our very own kitchen. The recipe calls for only five ingredients and was super easy. Here's everything you'll need for the bagels.


Ingredients (yields two bagels)
1/2 c of self rising flour (we used Pilsbury) 1/2 c of nonfat greek yogurt (drained)  2 tbsp of Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel Seasoning (or whatever topping you like) pinch…

Simple + Easy Blueberry Muffins

Happy Thursday W+A friends! We've been busy in the kitchen lately testing out some easy and healthy recipes for you all. John and I love sweets, but we try extra hard not to indulge during the week. For us to be successful prepping is a must. Usually on Sundays we like to make a healthy treat that we can enjoy either for breakfast, during that 3 p.m. slump or for dessert. If you've been following the blog for a bit you'll know we love making our easy pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, but this morning I decided to use what we had in the cupboards and fridge. I had some fresh blueberries, which we love adding to smoothies and yogurt, but muffins just seemed like the next best thing. Each muffin is around 70 calories so completely guiltless, but so delicious! Here's everything you'll need to yield 24 regular sized muffins.


Ingredients (yields 24 muffins)
1 box of sugar free cake mix (we used Pillsbury Sugar Free Yellow Cake) 1/2 c of unsweetened apple sauce  1 c of water…

Slow Cooker Honey Parmesan Pork Roast

We made it to hump day! As I currently sip my coffee this morning, I have a batch of banana coconut chocolate chip energy bites (recipe to come) for a little after dinner or post gym snack baking in the oven. We had a pork loin in the fridge big enough to feed a small country so we decided to cut it and make three separate meals for the week. I typically roast my pork in the oven Cuban style and add some roasted potatoes, but I figured I could set it and forget it with this easy and DELICIOUS recipe below. I'm not embarrassed to admit that John and I pretty much polished off almost the entire pork loin. Here is everything you'll need to make slow cooker honey Parmesan pork roast: 


Ingredients 3 to 4 lbs of pork loin roast 2 tbsp dried oregano 2 tbsp dried basil 1/2 tsp black pepper 3/4 tsp salt 2 tbsp garlic, minced 1/2 c honey 2 tbsp olive oil 1/4 c soy sauce 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

Directions Place pork loin in slow cooker. In a medium bowl, combine the dried oregano, dried basil…
