These Strawberry Cheesecake Bites are simple and so, SO good! A low fat cheesecake filling is stuffed inside of hollowed out strawberries and then dipped into graham cracker crumbs. All the flavor of strawberry cheesecake and just a fraction of the calories. Perfect to fill in that sweet tooth at any time.Ingredients: 
4 oz of low-fat cream cheese, softened
3 tablespoons of powdered sugar (depends on how sweet you want the filling)
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
10-20 strawberries ( quantity is your choice )
1/4 cup of graham crackers crumbs
Instructions:Rinse strawberries and cut around the top of the strawberry. Remove the top and clean out inside with a paring knife if necessary. I found most of the strawberries already had a nice hollow center so that step was not necessary. If you want to stand your strawberries upright ( like in the picture ) slice a bit off the bottom.
Combine cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla with a mixer or by hand. Add cream cheese mix to piping bag ( you can use a Ziploc bag ) and fill strawberries. Once strawberries are filled dip the top in graham cracker crumbs. Devour and fall in love. Enjoy! You could also drizzle or dip strawberries in chocolate if desired.

Nigella Lawson’s Butternut Squash with Blue Cheese

Ingredients

  • 2kg/4lb 8oz butternut squash

  • 3 tbsp olive oil

  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme or ½ tsp dried thyme

  • 100g/3½oz pecans

  • 125g/4oz Roquefort, or other blue cheese, crumbled

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220C/425F/Gas 7.

  2. Halve the squash, leaving the skin on, and scoop out the seeds. Cut the squash into 2.5cm/1in cubes - you don't need to be precise, just keep the pieces uniformly small.

  3. Place into a roasting tin and drizzle with the oil. Strip about four sprigs of thyme of their leaves (or use dried thyme) and sprinkle over the butternut squash.

  4. Transfer to the oven and roast for about 30-45 minutes, or until tender.

  5. Once out of the oven, remove the squash to a bowl. Scatter over the pecans and crumble over the cheese, stirring everything together gently. Season, to taste, with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  6. To serve, tear the remaining sprigs of thyme into small pieces and sprinkle over the top of the butternut squash mixture.
