The “Oh-These-Are-GOOD” Turkey Burgers

The “Oh-These-Are-GOOD” Turkey Burgers

My first post since the new design! The past few days have been stressful to say the least. I never thought my site would get so big! Currently, GreenLiteBites has over 950 posts, 22,000 comments, and some recipes like the Banana Oatmeal Cups have been pinned over 500,000 times!

This TOTALLY blows my mind. Especially considering I know how many posts didn’t make it Read the rest of this post »»

Roasted Rutabaga

Roasted Rutabaga, Who Knew?

No, really. Who knew?

I’ve never, ever eaten a rutabaga. I honestly had no idea what they were and really, their large, ugly, bulbous appearance didn’t entice me in the least.

I mean, look at it. It’s not very appetizing! Read the rest of this post »»

Cabbage, Feta and Pear Salad

I’ve made this salad twice since creating and photographing it. I wanted to share it so badly I’m so mad it’s taken me this long to get it up on the site! It’s so tasty in that I-cant-believe-these-few-ingredients-go-so-good-together type of way.

I bought a head of purple cabbage, not knowing what I’d do with it. I was thinking a slaw but then I noticed the ripe pears in my fruit basket and figured…

Why not?

Using Leftovers: Cheesy Twice-Baked Potato

I’ve been wanting to post this idea for WEEKS! It’s been so long I almost forgot about it which is not like me. Normally I’m a cook-and-post kind of blogger. I like to post while everything’s still fresh in my brain because honestly, I’m getting forgetful in my old age.

That being said, this one I remember well because it was TAST-Y and simple — a great combination. All you need are 4 ingredients.

Quick Apple-Walnut-Cheese Salad

I’m so sorry. I feel like I’ve been neglecting GreenLiteBites. I’ve been cooking and eating, I swear! I’ve even snapped a few shots of ideas that simply haven’t made it to the site yet.

My absence is partially do The 7-Year-Old’s Spring Break, which I’ve been blogging about on my travel blog. We’ve been doing something fun every day this week as a sort of staycation for him. I’ve also been distracted by GreenLiteBites redesign. Read the rest of this post »»

Easter Spinach Salad

It’s Easter Eve!

Or "Preaster" as we call it.

I have a houseful of family and a fridgeful of food.

Life is good.

:)

Today I made my traditional Easter dinner of pork loin, asparagus, and baked potatoes… Read the rest of this post »»

Grapefruit Quinoa

I’ve been a bad pantry stocker this past week. I just didn’t have it in me to hit the grocery store on the weekend resulting in no milk, no eggs, and no bread.

Even my stash of fresh fruits and vegetables was reduced to a browning banana, a few aging leaves of spinach in the bottom of a bag and this …

Using Leftovers: Easy Pulled Pork

A few days ago I made The 6-Ingredient, Family-Approved, Pork Loin Dinner purposefully with 2 pork loins so I would have leftovers. Having extra cooked protein makes a second meal that much easier. You can just serve it as is with different sides or transform it into sandwiches, tacos, quesadillas, even to top a salad. The options really are endless!

I decided to take my extra 3/4 of a loin and make pulled pork and, again, almost the whole family was on board, especially The Husband! Read the rest of this post »»

The 6-Ingredient, Family-Approved, Pork Loin Dinner

I thought it would be fun to invite you into my kitchen for dinner tonight. With 6 ingredients and 45 minutes I made a total family pleaser. Well, overall — the 2-year-old still hasn’t realized the awesomeness that are Brussels sprouts.

Anyway, I know I’m going to get some flack on using canned soup but truth be told, sometimes I need dinner to be brainless. Overall, this is a wholesome home-cooked meal that my family enjoyed immensely. Read the rest of this post »»
