My favorite meal to make

March 15, 2012


I’m not sure why I have waited this long to post this recipe. It is probably one of my top 3 favorite meals to make {I can’t think of the other two, so maybe this is just my “top recipe I like to make”}. Oh how I love this meal. I am so excited to […]

Crock Pot Red Beans and Rice

March 13, 2012


I love using my Crock-pot (see here, here, and here). It makes life so much easier. I usually put all the ingredients in the pot at night {when my kitchen is still messy & there’s food everywhere – I am usually not up for dirtying my kitchen in the morning}, stick it in the refrigerator, and […]

Skillet BBQ Chicken Pasta

March 1, 2012


So I’m not sure why I’ve been craving BBQ so much lately. Maybe because the temperature outside was 81° yesterday, and the sky could not have been a prettier blue. It was February but felt like May, which just so happens to be National BBQ Month. The other (most likely) answer is that I wanted […]

Crock-Pot Pulled Pork

February 27, 2012


Check out the new blog here  Crock-pot recipes are still the most popular recipes on my blog, and I only have two recipes posted. So I’ve got another one for you today. I’ve been meaning to make pulled pork in a slow-cooker for a really long time, but I have a couple of issues with […]

a heart-healthy restaurant meal at home

February 24, 2012


It’s Heart Health Month, and honestly, I haven’t given you very many heart healthy recipes {mini Oreo filled chocolate chip cookies, icing, and sugar cookies aren’t exactly healthy – oops}. So to make up for it, here is a really heart healthy recipe. Salmon, pistachios, garlic, parsley, and whole wheat bread – all heart healthy […]

really good avocado pasta

February 15, 2012


Remember Jump Rope for Heart? I used to love it; instead of school I got to jump rope and just play with my friends. When you’re 8, what’s not to love about that? If my memory serves me right, I think it was always around this time of year, possibly because February is Heart Health […]

dinner when you just don’t feel like cooking

January 4, 2012


Some days, I am just not in the mood to cook or even think about what I’m going to have for dinner. I’m secretly wishing one of my friends will call to invite me over for dinner or see if I want to go out for a bite to eat… Most of the time, I […]

crock pot chicken tacos

December 15, 2011


Recently, I had a friend ask me for some more slow-cooker recipes.  The slow-cooker lentil soup that I posted in October is the most visited page on the blog, so she’s right that I need more of those recipes on here. She asked Santa for a crock-pot, and I hope she gets one! She is […]

dinner for a cold night

December 13, 2011


Who doesn’t love chicken pot pie? It’s just so comforting.  Unfortunately, not many recipes for chicken pot pie are very healthy, and when they are, it’s just not like the real thing.  But I needed to make chicken pot pie. It’s cold outside. Enough said. This is my first experience making a healthier version of chicken […]

hamburger macaroni

November 10, 2011


Check out the new blog here  Who didn’t like that goofy looking hand + 1 pound of meat (+ other strange, scary ingredients) when they were younger? I know I did.  I miss that stuff. Embarrassingly enough, I still think it looks so tasty when I see commercials, and I wish I could eat that […]

October 24, 2011

a different kind of taco

October 20, 2011


It can be really hard to convince people that tofu is good, but if you cook it right, it can actually taste great! No worries, I’m not about to try to convince you to become a vegan or vegetarian even. I refuse to give up (uncured) bacon But it’s Vegetarian Awareness Month, so here […]

chicken and more chicken

October 14, 2011


Chicken is a great source of animal protein. It can be quick cooking, versatile, and tasty. Only problem is that I really don’t like dealing with raw chicken. I mean, who does? This is why I buy a large pack of chicken when it’s on sale and freeze it for later. That way I don’t […]
