state fair foods.my healthy version... ♥

In honor of my hometown state fair this weekend, I am posting healthy state fair inspired recipes, who say's you can't enjoy the fair and still eat healthy? enjoy! ♥

Here is info for the fair...http://www.wistatefair.com/wp/

Instead of fried foods, why not try something healthy,

For appetizers or a main meal why not try baked "skinny" mini  corn dogs, so much healthier.. here is my recipe!

  • ¾ cup Corn Meal
  • 1¼ cup flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • 1 egg beaten
  • ¼ – ⅓ cup honey
  • 3-4 turkey hot dogs
  1. Put all ingredients, except the hot dogs, into a bowl. Mix well with a whisk until well combined. Drizzle in honey on top of batter.
  2. Cut up hot dogs to your desired size. Place in greased muffin tins.
  3. Scoop out batter with a measuring cup and pour batter over hot dogs and bake at 400 for 20-25 minutes, or until the tops are starting to turn golden brown.
  4. Serve warm with ketchup and mustard. Reheats well!

 I usually get rotisserie chicken at the fair, it's so much healthier and delicious! Here is my recipe for slow cooker rotisserie chicken.

Rotisserie chicken

Ingredients   ♥

1 whole chicken, rinsed, dried, and with giblets and neck removed
1 medium yellow onion, sliced
2 Tbsp Kosher Salt
2 tsp smoked paprika (regular is fine, I prefer the richness of smoked)
3/4 tsp chipotle chili powder
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp dried Mexican oregano
3/4 tsp garlic powder
fresh cracked black pepper to taste
{whole peppercorns, optional}
{4 sprigs fresh rosemary, optional}
1. Rinse chicken under cold water - remove giblets and neck. Dry inside and out, set aside.
2. Prepare the rub.
3. Slice the onion
4. Coat the inside and outside of the chicken with the spice rub.
5. Stuff 1/2 the onion inside the chicken.
6. Place the remaining 1/2 of the onion on the bottom of the slow cooker
7. Put the chicken on top of the onion and top with fresh rosemary (if desired)
8. Cook on low for about 5 hours.
9. Carefully remove the chicken from the slow cooker

10. **the juices and onions can be reserved for a yummy gravy, if desired***

then for dessert why not try something inspired by the fair, sugar free diy snow cones, here is my recipe..http://europeancutie.blogspot.com/2012/08/healthy-sugar-free-snow-cones.html

Step 1) I found snow cone cups. you can get these at your local Target or Walmart store.

Step 2) Juice fruits and or vegetables!  I chose

1 beet and 1 strawberry for red 
1 orange for a yellowish color
1 yam plus 1 carrot for orange.
1 celery stalk and 1 green apple for green.

Step 3) Put juices in a small squeeze bottle (I buy these by the kitchen gadgets or the cake decorating supplies)

Step 4) Shave the ice! I put a few handfuls of ice into a good blender, and it literally came out like snow!

assemble them into your snowcone cups and enjoy! So, what do you think? supercute and healthy right?

then why not have some drinks! here is my recipe for skinny cotton candy martinis! http://europeancutie.blogspot.com/2012/03/skinny-girls-cotton-candy-martini.html
