Mini Apple Roses

I found a recipe for heaven in a bite.
They're called "Apple Roses". 
Look at these beauties:

They are pretty easy to make, but a little time consuming. To start, you have to slice an apple into really thin slices.

Then you place them in a prepared bowl of water with a small lemon squeezed in (no seeds) and microwave them for about three minutes to soften them.  Once done, drain out all the water and set aside.

The recipe I found called for puff pastry, but I substituted croissants since I had those on hand.  You roll the pastry out thin and slice into rectangles.  I found I was able to cut one roll of croissants into about 12 rectangles.  Then you smear a dab of apricot preserves on each pastry piece, sprinkle cinnamon, layer a couple apple slices on one side (skin out), fold the opposite half of the pastry over the apples, roll them up carefully and place in a greased muffin tin.

Next, you bake them at 375 degrees for about 20 minutes. Once done, sprinkle with powder sugar and enjoy!  They are SO good warm...

Here's the original YouTube video recipe I based these of of:

Homemade Strawberry Vinaigrette Dressing

I have been clean eating for awhile now and I am always on the look out for a healthy alternative to
dressings and condiments (and desserts too, but that's another post!).

I came across a paleo recipe for a berry vinaigrette dressing which sounded yummy, so I modified it a
little to create my own strawberry vinaigrette dressing since I already had strawberries on hand.

To create this recipe you will need the following ingredients:
- 1 cup ripe strawberries
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper

If your strawberries are not super ripe, you can broil them in the oven for a few minutes. 
Just make sure to use all the juice that escapes!

Place all your ingredients in a food processor and blend well. 
Then pour into a dressing container of your choosing and enjoy! 

You can use and combine any type of berries in this recipe.  It can also be refrigerated for a week or two, though I find it gets a little thick!
Hope you enjoy it!
