Yummy Thursday: Detox Time!

Welcome to another Yummy Thursday!

(Please note: I am NO cooking expert. I play around in my kitchen and half the time something works and half the time it doesn't. The point is I appreciate food in a big way and just want to share that love with you. If you are looking for new Betty Crocker or Jamie Oliver style recipes... this is not your place to look. This is a place for just loving family friendly food.)

 This week is a little different as I started a detox diet yesterday so thought I would share a recipe for a Detox Tuna Melt & Homemade Honey Balsamic Dressing! I made this up because I love tuna melts and wanted a version which was bread free and mayo free to enjoy on my detox over the next few weeks.

It is yummy and quick to make, plus very nutritious. I love to eat this with a healthy fresh salad and a homemade Honey Balsamic dressing.


Rice Waffles/Crackers
Goats or Sheep Cheese
Balsamic Vinegar
Olive Oil

To Make:

1. Mix the tuna and the corn. You can add a little Balsamic Vinegar to help bind the ingredients if you want.

2. Put a portion of tuna mix on to the Rice Waffles.

3. Cover with some Goat or Sheep Cheese.

4. Place under a hot grill just long enough for the cheese to melt.

5. To make the Dressing mix together Balsamic Vinegar, a little Olive Oil and Honey to taste. I don't know quantities... I always wing it.

6. Serve the Tuna Waffles with a side of Salad and drizzle with the dressing.

7. Enjoy!

Feature Time!

Here is the best of the best from last weeks party! Thank you so much for your input and creativity. It was a wonderful party. Check it out here if you missed it!

Here are my to 5 favourites....

Extreme Personal Measures offered these mouthmatering Gooey Toffee Butter Cakes! How yummy can it get!? These look delicious and a perfect treat for special days.

These Chocolate Mint Cupcakes from Ladybird Ln are irresistible and so fun. Any kid (or grown-up) would love to take a bite into these. Yum! These wouldn't last 5 minutes around my husband!

This recipe for Meatballs from Will Cook For Smiles was a sure winner for me. I am a meatball addict! Seriously, I could eat them every day. This recipe looked simple and tasty so I couldn't not feature it. If I wasn't on a detox I would think of making them right now! Mmmmmmmm....

This incredible Ice Cream Cake from A Sweet & Simple Life really stood out to me. It is an amazing idea and I just want to take a spoon to it and eat as much as possible! You must check it out and see what amazing layers are in it. I really am going to have to try this one day.

Finally, The Seven Year Cottage presented this idea for Marshmallow Cuteness. They are simple adorable! Fun for parties and treats, and the kids can get messy and help make then. A cute and simple idea... which  makes it perfect for Humble Homemaking!
