Greek Feta Dip

Greek Feta Dip
Colt and I were shopping at Trader Joes last weekend and they were sampling their Feta Dip with Pita Chips so of course we had to try it.
Then we thought about buying it but I was like you know I have just about everything at home to make this and you would have more then what comes in that little container.
So he reluctantly agreed to let me try and replicate the Feta Dip.
I'm pretty sure he didn't believe I could come up with something the equivalent or better but I managed to knock his socks off with this one.
He told me I better have this posted before Superbowl because this Greek Feta Dip needs to be at everyones party.
He then went on to tell me we will having this at our house for Superbowl before he managed to polish off the last of the dip.
Good thing this is a super easy recipe because it looks like we will be making it again for Sunday!

Sticky Chipotle Honey Baked Hot Wings

Sticky Chipotle Honey Baked Hot Wings
These Sticky Chipotle Honey Baked Hot Wings are one of the "it" things in our house at the moment.
Sticky, sweet and spicy and oooh sooo good!
What's not to love?
We have some form of hot wings at least once a week but these bad boys have been making a weekly appearance recently.
They are super easy to make and pack a little hidden punch at the end.
The sauce can easily be adjusted from a little hot to flaming dependent on how many chipotle peppers you add.
I usually make the sauce with one pepper and cook some of the wings in a small pan for our youngest and then add another pepper for the rest of us.
2 Chipotle peppers seems to give a decent amount of heat.
If you really like to knock your socks off 3-4 chipotle peppers are sure to light your mouth on fire.
Be warned this sauce is a bit of a creeper.. The honey hits the tongue and they don't seem to hot but a few seconds later the chipotle gives a little kick!
Here's how to make these...

Grapefruit Avocado Salad With Grapefruit Vinaigrette

Grapefruit Avocado Salad With Grapefruit Vinaigrette
Avocado Grapefruit Salad with Grapefruit Vinaigrette is my go to salad at the moment.
I can't seem to get enough of how light and refreshing it is and the sliced almonds add the perfect crunch.
I find the sweeter pink grapefruit gives the right balance of flavor and the Grapefruit Vinaigrette is mildly sweet and tangy pairing perfectly with the tart grapefruit and creamy avocado.
When I'm looking for something a little more substantial for dinner or lunch I add cooked shrimp or salmon for a fat fighting power house plus it's quick which is always a win in my book! 
I've been unable to really do any cardio in the last year and half so anything that could help kill the demonic belly bulge is a good thing in my book!
