If you’re watching your waistline this summer, then let me introduce you to the beautiful, scrumptious world of lettuce wraps. It’s pretty simple, instead of using bread for a sandwich (or wrap), forgo the carbs and use lettuce. These special wraps can be made into any crazy combination your heart (or should I say stomach) desires. The fun part is experimenting with different recipes. Lettuce wraps are perfect for light lunch or an easy appetizer.
If you are looking for something with a kick…Then try these oven-fried Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps by Sugar Dish Me. The breaded chicken mixed with quinoa, avocado, blue cheese and tomatoes are certain to keep your tummy happy long past dinner time.
If you are a die-hard bacon lover…Then make your BLT “protein style” with these BLT Lettuce Wraps by Jackie’s Happy Plate. Stuff crisp romaine leaves with applewood smoked bacon, a little mayonnaise and a few fresh tomatoes from your garden.
If all you really want to do is go to P.F. Chang’s and order the chicken lettuce wraps, but can’t spend the money right now…Then this Copycat P.F. Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps recipe by Bobbi’s Kozy Kitchen is for you. Instead of worrying about a parking spot, you can enjoy this family-favorite in the comfort of your own home. Plus it’s ready in under 30 minutes!
If you are looking for a vegetarian option…Then these Vegetarian Lentil Sloppy Joe Lettuce Wraps by Foxes Love Lemons are a wonderful alternative. The rich (and hardy!) lentils are so satisfying, you won’t even miss the meat.
If you looking for something on the sweeter side…Then try these Korean Beef Lettuce Wraps by The Complete Savorist. Garnished with green onions and sesame seeds, this flavorful stir-fried beef is sure to be a crowd-pleaser.
If it’s seafood night…Then try out these Shrimp Lettuce Wraps with Peanut Dipping Sauce by Natasha’s Kitchen. With a special peanut sauce drizzled over tasty shrimp, it’s like a party in your mouth waiting to happen.
Consider serving lettuce wraps at your table this week! You’ll be surprised how fun (and easy!) they are to make.

YOU GUYS. Today is National Pie Day, a.k.a the best and only food holiday worth celebrating. If you’re a regular reader, you know that I’m a huge pie fan. In any form, basically. I joke (not actually joking) about having pie for my future wedding dessert. So I thought I’d peruse some of my favorite blogs and find the best pies for you to help your celebrating!
I’ve had this Crack Pie from Averie Cooks for a while now and every time I see it can’t wait to try it out! With an oatmeal cookie crust and so much butter, this pie is perfect for an intense sweet tooth!
Bakerita has brought us the mother of all desserts in this Raspberry White Chocolate Cheesecake Pie. This treat could work at Christmastime, but did anyone else think Valentine’s Day when they saw it? I would love to share this treat with my Valentine!
Have the best pie day ever, Delish Dish! Let me know how you’re celebrating in the comments!
With love and pie,
With spring in the very distant future, I thought I’d help you all celebrate National Apricot Day! Did you know in Latin, apricot means “precious”? So now when they ask that at your next trivia night, you’ll think of me. You’re welcome!
My little sister, Laura, is a cheese-whiz. I couldn’t help but think of her when I found this amazing appetizer on Drizzle & Drip! Try these Turkish Apricots Stuffed with Goats Cheese and Wrapped in Bacon! Perfectly sweet and salty!
Enjoy apricot day!
Happy happy new year, Delish Dish! Since I didn’t get to toast with all of you, I thought I’d share my favorite champagne-themed recipes this week! And also, who says New Year’s Eve has a monopoly on the bubbly drink?
If you’re a regular reader, you know how much I adore pancakes in literally any form. So pair these Fluffy Strawberry and Champagne Pancakes with your leftover champagne for a great brunch recipe. Check out Veggie and the Beast for more great recipes!
Talking about “leftover” champagne (but really, who actually has leftover champagne), you’ll love this One-Pan Baked Champagne Cream Sauce Fettuccine with Truffle Oil from Half Baked Harvest!
Cheers and happy 2015!
