weekend review: the zero calorie margarita

Figure 1. Friday night's dinner: balsamic salmon, roasted butternut squash with rosemary and balsamic vinegar, and roasted broccoli with Parmesan.

Figure 2. Sunday night's cocktail: a margarita made with this Stevia-sweetened zero calories mix. I was skeptical, but this was delicious!

Figure 3. Out of the oven: a ham, cheese, and green onion quiche with a hash brown crust courtesy of mom.

Figure 4. Sunday night's dinner (please excuse the awkward half-eaten extreme closeup): ham and cheese quiche, a salad with homemade tarragon-mustard vinaigrette, and a french baguette dipped in olive oil and spices.


  1. I made that butternut squash recipe for Thanksgiving a few years ago! I swear we are recipe twins. ;)

  2. That quiche recipe looks so good... We are having a sunrise service at our church for Easter and we are going to have breakfast that morning. I am totally going to do a quiche!

  3. I have never heard of that mix, sounds tasty though. the quiche looks to die for!

  4. How have I never had a hash brown crust on a quiche before?? Some of those stevia-sweetened drinks are surprisingly good, right? Better than the sugar version anyway, that's what I say!

  5. Wow! I'm glad I stopped by. The food looks amazing! I am definately going through a salmon phase at the moment so will have to try your version. I can't wait to read through the rest of your blog!

  6. Gosh, your salmon... to die for... mind sharing ;) ?

    And just out of curiosity: how can a alcoholic drink be zero calorie? Or is it a virgin margarita?

    1. ok true...the MIX is 0 calories of course the tequila is not. but, still!

  7. That quiche. Holy crap, it looks seriously amazing!!!


  8. Stevia-sweetened margarita mix?! Ah. I need this!

  9. Oh, margarita mix sweetened with stevia? I must find this! As always...the eats look AND sound delicious! Hope you had a great weekend, love!
