how many of you can’t wait until matthew daddario does the pie scene

you all know the one

“I did not make a pie,” Alec repeated, gesturing expressively with one hand, “for three reasons. One, because I do not have any pie ingredients. Two, because I don’t actually know how to make a pie.”
He paused, clearly waiting.
Removing his sword and leaning it against the cave wall, Jace said warily, “And three?”
“Because I am not your bitch,” Alec said, clearly pleased with himself.”

Three Two-Ingredient "Recipes" for One Busy Season!

With shopping, baking, parties and more, it’s easy to just grab one of those all-too-convenient cookies tempting us all at every turn. But if you have an arsenal of simple, satisfying and nutritious options at-the-ready, it will be much easier to make smart choices and save the baked goods for treats!

Here are three options that are as easy as A, B…well, that’s it! Two ingredients, less than one minute to prepare—zero reason not to try them. :)

1. Santa Berries: Seriously, how cute are these?! Berries and cream are a classic combo, but this twist I stumbled upon on Pinterest takes it to a whole different, festive level. Cut off the leaf-end to make a base, then slice off the top ¼ to serve as the hat. Make a “face” out of whipped cream, or in this case, I tried nonfat Greek yogurt with a bit of stevia for a bit of protein. Add two mini chocolate chips for eyes, add the hat and a final dot of whipped cream or yogurt. Alternatively, just slice off the leaves and top the whole strawberry with cream/yogurt to make a Santa hat. Serve this at your next get-together as a healthful dessert option that kids will love.

2. Cheesy Salsa Dip: This awesome swap for those who love chili con queso comes from Roni over at Green Lite Bites. The day after I spotted this genius idea on her site, I had to give it a try myself! Simply microwave a wedge of Laughing Cow light cheese for about 30 seconds, mix with ¼ cup salsa and enjoy with your dipper of choice. Sliced veggies (carrots, celery, peppers, broccoli) or chips (pita, tortilla) all would work well. I’d love to hear what you come up with to scoop up this yummy (and crowd-pleasing) snack! Next time I whip this up, I’m going to make it a meal: 2 whole-wheat tortillas + cheesy salsa dip + 1 grilled chicken breast, diced + grilled peppers and onions = guilt-free quesadilla time!

3. Cinnamon Apples: I admit, this can’t even qualify as a recipe. But if you ever struggle with finding motivation to eat another serving of produce, this trick might help. Core and thinly slice your favorite variety of apple (Granny Smith for me, please!) and sprinkle on a dash of cinnamon. The spice not only adds awesome flavor to the juicy apples, but it also packs a fiber punch. Feeling like a dessert? Warm a whole, cored apple topped with cinnamon in the  microwave or oven until tender. Top with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of low-fat frozen yogurt or ice cream. Mmm!
