The Magic Bullet Review

Ask Roni: My Thoughts on Blenders

Dear Roni,

I am writing to ask for your personal advice and review of food processors and blenders.

Cooking has become my almost full-time hobby this summer when I’m not working. I am truly inspired by your blog and have liked everything… Read the rest of this post »»

Apple & Spinach Stuffed Pork Chop Dinner With Rustic Roasted Potatoes & Balsamic Candied Carrots

That’s the name of the dish that won my team the recent Food Lion Frugal Cook-Off Contest!

If you read my weight-loss blog, I shared the story there a few weeks ago, but I wanted to post the recipes here on GreenLiteBites as well. It just took… Read the rest of this post »»

Shirataki Noodles with Basil and Cashews

Shirataki Noodles With Basil and Cashews

This is the second time I’m using shirataki noodles for a recipe and I feel the need to explain as I know they are a polarizing product.

Some people only see them as a diet ploy because of the way they are marketed with names like “Skinny” and “Miracle.” They also have a funny smell and, unless you figure out how to prepare them, they can be quite gross. Read the rest of this post »»

Deviled Eggs

Breakfast Deviled Eggs

I’m obsessed with eggs for breakfast. Almost every day I wake up early, hit the gym and then whip up an omelet with whatever I have in the fridge. It’s a morning tradition.

That is, when I’m home.

If you haven’t noticed… Read the rest of this post »»

Yummy Kidney Bean Salad

Yummy Kidney Bean Salad From the Pantry

Returning to an empty fridge after traveling is always a challenge. The husband literally wants to eat out every meal until we go grocery shopping. I, on the other hand, look at the lack of fresh foods as a challenge. What can I make from my pantry that’s healthy, satisfying and fun?

Maple Ginger Chicken on a Stick

Maple Ginger Chicken on a Stick

It gets exhausting making food for other people especially when those other people are kids. They never seem to want ANYTHING. Tonight I told the 8-year-old we were going to have chicken tacos. He said he didn’t want tacos. I said OK, how about a quesadilla? nope. A stir-fry? He made a face. Read the rest of this post »»

Green Cantaloupe Smoothie finished

Green Cantaloupe Smoothie

Green smoothies — you’re either in the make-them-all-the-time-camp, or you haven’t yet taken the leap because, let’s be honest, they look a little freaky.

I now find them appetizing. I guess it’s what you’re used to. Read the rest of this post »»

Apple Spinach Slaw

We’re home from the beach! We had an amazing week — click here for a few photos — but boy am I glad to be back home in my kitchen. My body is seriously craving some vegetables!

Of course The Husband wanted to order in tonight for dinner. I get it. It was a long day. We have no food in the fridge. The house is a mess. The kids have been on our last nerve. Read the rest of this post »»

BLT Salad

BLT-Inspired Salad

I was in “clean-out-fridge” mode as we prepared for our yearly family beach outing and there was a pile of lettuce greens staring me in the face every time I opened the door.

I didn’t have much else besides some cherry tomatoes from the farm.

Wait. A. Minute. Read the rest of this post »»
