Danish Genius

I am a genius!  I am, no bragging here just a simple fact 🙂

Like total genius!

You know how you crave something that is bad, bad food, and the only thing you have on your mind is how to get that flavor without giving in to the horrible fat ridden, trans fat loaded, heart attack waiting to happen food?  Yeah you do!  Well that is what happened to me this past weekend friends.  Which is why I am a total genius!

Now I am not saying that I have geniously developed this wonderful recipe for the first time.  I am sure some one somewhere has done something pretty darn similar before, but on the off chance that they haven’t can someone tell me who to contact for a patent???

I wanted a danish.  Not just any danish but a blueberry cream cheese danish.  This is what happens when you live in Louisiana and it is mardi gras season.  You see king cakes everywhere.  Like literally everywhere – the grocery store, the coffee shop, The. Produce. Stand?  Everywhere!!!

Darn it, I wanted a danish!  Unfortunately my plan to get back on track includes not indulging in super sugary foods for several weeks in order to tame the sweet tooth a little.  So I had to compromise.  Then I had an “aha” moment…..

This totally took care of my craving.  Did it taste just like a danish or king cake?  No it didn’t, but it did give me a much healthier version of a sweet treat.  My body thanks me 🙂

Like I said – genius!!

  1. Mmmmmm, that looks yummy! I’ve never made waffles, probably due to the fact that I don’t known a waffle iron, but it is something I seem to want from time to time. Maybe St. Valentine will bring me one this year 🙂
