Sweet Saturday: cheesecake stuffed strawberries, plus other yum recipes!


Well, I’m back from my trip to Disney World, and you guys didn’t even notice I was gone because the posts kept coming! Booyah! This week I made dinner for friends and because they are close friends, I decided it would be safe to try some new recipes from my Pinterest recipe board. 

I tried this penne with roasted asparagus and balsamic butter recipe (I did not use all of the butter it called for, I reduced the vinegar down a bit more than it suggested, and I added a tiny bit more brown sugar to the sauce). I also tried this roasted peppers with capers and mozzarella recipe from Smitten Kitchen. I paired these with fresh green beans and french bread. Finally, for dessert, I tried these cheesecake stuffed strawberries. 

Here’s how mine turned out (Unfortunately, it looks like my phone will be my only picture-taking device for a while):

All three recipes turned out great! I was really pleasantly surprised and will definitely be making them all again in the future. I especially recommend the roasted peppers dish for a great summertime dinner addition. 

Anything making your Saturday sweet?
