Halloween Candy Covered Fruit Treats …Costumed Fruit!

Don’t we all try to have as much fun as we can while still being as healthy as possible? I think most of us do have those intentions. “If I have the Avocado Bacon Cheeseburger and fries, then I’ll have a diet Coke instead of a regular sugary Coke.” Right?!?!

Every little itty bitty teeny tiny dish was perfect! You guessed it! It was a Baby Shower and I get to make a Dutch Baby! How cute is that! But “Wait”, I thought! “A Dutch Baby…
