Cheesy Garden Vegetable Burger

WOW was this good.

I mean seriously good.

It’s not vegetarian so don’t start throwing stones. I’m calling it a Garden Vegetable Burger because I use the new Laughing Cow Smooth Sensations Garden Vegetable Cream Cheese Spread.

Arnold Palmer-ish Green Tea

I drink water 99.9% of the time but every so often it just doesn’t cut it. I want something else. Something more. Something slightly sweet.

Today was one of those days.

I decided to make a refreshing drink based on the famous Arnold Palmer, half lemonade and half iced tea. There was only one problem, well two, I have no iced tea or lemonade.

Homemade Chicken & Corn Soup

The other day I made a whole chicken on the grill in pieces. It was delicious! Just a little BBQ sauce and an open flame is all I need to make The Husband happy in the dinner department.

I also picked up a few ears of corn from the grocery store. They aren’t in season locally yet but when I saw them I couldn’t resist. Nothing says, “Hello Summer!” like corn on the cob and BBQ chicken.

I was *THIS* Close to Giving In

I’m trying hard, REAL HARD, to feed Little Bean what we eat at dinner. That’s it. End of story. Case closed.

I make chicken, broccoli and noodles. He gets chicken, broccoli and noodles. I make hamburgers, beans and corn. He gets hamburger, beans and corn.

It sounds so easy, right? Read the rest of this post »»

Vegetarian Chili Pizza

Let me explain so you don’t think I’m making a chili recipe and just put it on pizza. I’m calling this vegetarian Chili Pizza because chili is what inspired flavors.

I think I told you. Little Bean is really into, well, BEANS! We go through a can about every 2 days. Yesterday we broke open a can of Kidney Bean and while he snacked on them, carrots and cheese…

Canned Salmon Burgers

I’ve confessed my inability to follow recipes here on GreenLiteBites many, many times. I don’t know why it’s so hard for me. I can barely follow some of my own and I wrote the darn things!

I think most of my problem stems from not having all the ingredients listed and, well, frankly, not being organized or disciplined enough to actually read through the recipe, go shopping with a list and buy what I need. Read the rest of this post »»

First Ever GreenLiteBites Live!

Join me (and the kids) tonight as I attempt, yes ATTEMPT, cooking dinner live on camera. On the menu will be some kind of chicken rice concoction. I’m purposely winging it to show you it’s possible to make dinner, in a pinch, while entertaining kids, from freezer to plate in about 1/2 hour. This is my mission. :)
