Silly me forgot to tell you something last week – I had a phone interview for a job! I thought it went very well and was also given a writing assignment afterwards to complete within a week. I sent it back a day early and am now waiting to see if I make it into the next stage of the interview process. Of course in the mean time I am still working on other applications. The job market is too rough out there to be idle between interviews.

I also have not been idle in the kitchen department. I thought for sure I would have to cut back on the amount of posts per week but I’ve been able to coast along as normal. Thank goodness because ideas have started coming out of my ears. This fruit pizza isn’t a novel concept but that doesn’t mean it is any less fun. I technically made the rainbow backwards since red has a longer wavelength than violet and therefore would be on the outer edge of a rainbow (nerd alert). I prefer purple over red anyway, but regardless of technicalities you cannot help but feel happy from just looking at this colorful fruit tart.

Chicken Salad with Grapes, Apple, and Pecans

For some reason chicken salad is never something I really want to take on a dance with my taste buds on a regular basis. Not that I don’t like the taste, it’s just not visually appealing. Guess it makes me think of tuna salad, and if you haven’t noticed from the minimal amount of seafood on my blog I don’t really enjoy it.

But when my friend Brandi made a version of chicken salad with chopped up apples, grapes and nuts, it was both visually and texturally satisfying. I love the little bits of crunch that the apples and nuts and reminds me of a Waldorf chicken salad.

Creamy Grape Dessert

I am sad to say that this is the last of the holiday blog hops. Actually, it may continue on further after this since we’ve all enjoyed participating. But for now, this final round is themed for wine, white chocolate or grapes. Since I rarely make anything with grapes that is what I picked.

This recipe says it all in it’s name. It’s creamy, has lots of grapes and is a dessert. Well, and there’s some walnuts on top. It makes me think of yogurt with fruit and granola but a bit sweeter. Might even be tempted to try it for breakfast too.

CREAMY GRAPE DESSERT

Serves 8

Ingredients:

1 lb green seedless grapes, washed and dried well

1 lb red seedless grapes, washed and dried well

8 oz. fat free plain Greek yogurt

4 oz. light cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup agave (or sugar)

1 tsp vanilla extract

2 Tbsp brown sugar, packed

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (or pecans)

Directions:

  1. Cut grapes in half and set aside.
  2. Mix yogurt, cream cheese, agave (or sugar) and vanilla until blended well. Stir grapes into mixture, and pour into large serving dish.
  3. Combine brown sugar and walnuts. Sprinkle over top of grapes to cover completely. Chill until ready to serve.
