Yesterday I had the honor of being the Godmother to my beautiful niece, Mia Rose. After the church, there was a reception dinner where I totally indulged on some not-so-light dishes and of course, cake.

I need to brag about this cake for a minute because my very talented aunt made this, although my iPhone really doesn’t do it justice… So pretty you almost don’t want to eat it!

This morning I ran 2 miles and after my run I did some grocery shopping (best time to go food shopping BTW, I always make the best choices after working out) and found these beautiful blood oranges. I love the color of blood oranges and I seldom see them, so a salad is today’s light lunch.

This is also great with goat cheese in place of gorgonzola, and you can use raspberries or strawberries in place of the oranges.

I think even your skinny taste viewers would love to know how she made it, just for the sheer sake of seeing how a work of art like that is put together. If she is not a professional baker she needs to go into the business.

    This salad is SO pretty! I wish I had blood oranges around here, is there possibly a substitue?

  8. This looks really tasty! My mind is spinning furiously – I don't have endive or blood oranges but I DO have arugula and oranges. I don't have gorgonzola but I do have laughing cow.
