In the Kitchen: Zucchini Lasagna


I LOVE lasagna but always found it fairly heavy in the carbohydrate department. In this recipe, zucchini replaces the lasagna sheets but the same delicious flavour is still there. You won't even miss the noodle! This lasagna is perfect for winter or summer because the vegetables are very easy to substitute.

Baked Kit Kats Exist.. and They Look DELICIOUS!

via

In Japan, the latest flavours for Kit Kat are "Yaki Cream Cheese". In Japanese, "yaki" means baked, toasted, grilled, roasted, etc. (BTW, yes, this is the same "yaki" in takoyaki..which in direct translation means octopus that is baked). Unfortunately, these are ONLY available in the Kit Kat boutique located in Tokyo.

Want to taste a steak with a hint of strawberry? But would you really sacrifice a full steak and a basket of strawberries just to find out ?

In the Kitchen: Rainbow Smoothie


I LOVE drinking shakes as a morning meal. It gives you a natural burst of energy and tastes delicious but is all natural and healthy. The best part about smoothies is that they are completely versatile so this recipe can be switched around a million different ways until you find a fruit and veggie combo you love
