FFF: Glazed Turkey Bacon Wrapped Turkey

I still have some recipes from our Superbowl get-together to post! Better late than never...right?  This one is great for sports parties, Christmas, bbqs, birthdays, brunches, Halloween, or just for the heck of it! When I was in 6th grade, my family went to my mom's boss's Superbowl party.  He had bacon wrapped little smokies on the food table and it was my first trying them. I couldn't get over how good they were! My mom used to make them for us all the time after that. (Thanks, Mike for the great recipe idea) The original recipe is made with bacon, smokies, butter, and brown sugar. I make them a little lighter and they still taste fantastic! To me, eating healthy is about making swaps in order to enjoy the things we love. Jeremy asks me to make them all the time. It's safe to say that they are man approved!
The ingredients will depend on how many you plan to make! We only had a couple people over, so I didn't make too many. But they go fast, so if you are having a large party, make plenty!
Ingredients: Turkey Bacon, All Natural Little Turkey Smokies, Organic Honey, Brown Sugar!
You don't have to grease the pan because the bacon has enough grease, but I usually coat it in cooking spray to prevent the bottom of the pan from staining.
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-Cut the strips of bacon in half or in thirds.
-Wrap each little smokie with turkey bacon.
-Only wrap the bacon around the little smokie once.
-Use a toothpick to hold the bacon and little smokie together.
-Place them into the pan.
Sprinkle brown sugar on top of the little smokies and drizzle honey on top.  Don't bury them, but use enough to make them sweet!
Cook for 15 to 20 minutes! Let them cool in the pan before removing them.
These are really good the next day, too. There won't be many leftover if you are serving them at a party. They are literally too good to put down. Make extra's if you plan on eating them the next day. My mom used to make an extra pan, keep them in the refrigerator and at half time she'd make a fresh batch!
I hope you enjoy these as much as we did! I'll be posting more recipes soon!

Mel's Munchies: Not-So-Bad-For-You Cinnamon Rolls

I don’t know about you but I have a HUGE sweet tooth! Problem is, most of the sweets I crave are loaded with fat and calories. As a bride-to-be, I have to limit how much of those decadent treats I consume! Here’s a recipe that will trick your sweet tooth into thinking you’re eating an ooey-gooey-loaded-with-calories cinnamon roll!

Ingredients: 1 package of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, 1 container of whipped vanilla frosting (this is important – less calories!), 1 tbsp of cinnamon, and 3 tbsp of sugar.  

First, preheat the oven to 375°. While that’s heating up, measure 1 tablespoon of cinnamon and put into a small bowl. Next, measure and add 3 tablespoons of sugar to the same bowl.

With a small whisk, gently combine the cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.

Open the package of crescent rolls and separate the crescent triangles. The triangles are serrated so it should be easy to separate. If the dough is too warm, it could get messy. If so, place in them in the freezer for 5 minutes. It will be easier to work with.

Sprinkle a spoonful of the cinnamon-sugar mixture over each triangle. Use the bottom of the spoon to smooth across the surface of the triangle crescent.

Starting at the widest end of the crescent, begin to roll it inward until it’s completely rolled up.

Place each roll onto a non-stick cookie sheet. Make sure they are evenly spaced. They will expand as they bake and you don’t want it to turn into one BIG roll… or maybe you do?!

Once each roll is on the cookie sheet, place in the pre-heated oven for about 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven. These are best served warm, so don’t let them cool too long.

Place 2 heaping spoonfuls of whipped frosting into a small bowl. You can use this for dipping! Enjoy!

The Nail Files by Yaya: Valentine’s Day Glitter Hearts

Hello again. Can you smell the love in the air? Valentine’s Day is literally just around the corner. Today I will teach you how to create glitter hearts on your nails. If you can draw a heart on a piece of paper then you can draw it on your nails. Here are the items I used:
Sally Hansen: Double Duty for my base coat, O.P.I: Steady As She Rose for my base color, Sharpie Permanent Marker in a hot pink shade, Nicole by O.P.I: Glitz and Glisten for glitter and topped it with Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat.

Start with base coat and base color. Apply allover nails. Make sure polishes have completely dried before moving on to the next step.

Draw heart shapes on each nail using the permanent maker

Apply glitter to each heart

Finally, apply top coat and you are done!
