Pistachio and Oat Crusted Tilapia

Pistachio and Oat Crusted Tilapia

I’ve been trying to serve the family more fish — NOT in the form of breaded sticks — by serving it at least once a week. Fish has been the only dish I surrendered to making substitutions on in the past by serving The Husband and myself fillets and the kids store-bought fish sticks. It was the only way I could get any fish into the boys and my philosophy was that some was better than none. Read the rest of this post »»

Sweet Potato and Kale Skillet

You guys know me by now. I love getting inspired with what I have on hand, and after last week’s farm share this is what I had floating around my kitchen.

Saturday morning I decided to have a little fun and whip up something just for me using everything pictured above. The result was a pretty versatile side dish with a lot of flavor. Read the rest of this post »»

Finished Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie

Strawberry Shortcake Smoothie

I go through smoothie phases. I can go months without making one and then all of a sudden I get an itch. Yesterday was an all-of-a-sudden day. I got back from the gym and even though I was hungry I had no desire to eat. Nothing sounded good. Perfect situation for a smoothie experiment! Read the rest of this post »»

Turkey Taco Soup

Turkey Taco Soup

It rained ALL WEEKEND and it wasn’t like a nice “spring’s here, YAY” rain. It was a cold, torrential downpour that lasted 48 hours and then started to turn to snow on Sunday afternoon.

SNOW! Read the rest of this post »»

Blender Brownies

“Healthy” Brownies made in the Blender in Minutes!

I feel like I’ve talked these up so much on social media that everyone is now going to be disappointed but seriously, these things came out AMAZING!

Don’t get me wrong, they aren’t traditional brownies but look… Read the rest of this post »»

Quinoa Salad with Swiss Chard and Radishes

Quinoa Salad With Swiss Chard and Radishes

Swiss chard may be my least favorite thing to get in the my CSA box. It’s not that I don’t like it, I’m just not as inspired by it as I am with kale or spinach. It has a stronger taste than other greens, and getting it in the family is damn near impossible unless I really hide it in something. Read the rest of this post »»

Roasted Honey Lemon Pepper Chicken Breasts

Roasted Honey-Lemon-Pepper Chicken Breasts

I’m not sure if I’m making a mountain out of a mole hill but it seems harder and harder to come up with ideas all four of us will for eat for dinner anymore. Of course, if I stuck with burgers, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, fish sticks and pizza the kids would be ecstatic but I’m really trying to create some healthier family go-tos everyone enjoys.

Bowl of Feta and Peaces

Peaches and Feta

We’ve all heard of Peaches and Cream, right? I mean it’s a match made in heaven.

Well, the other day while snack searching, an idea hit me as soon as I opened the pantry and saw a can of peaches.

When I was traveling a couple of weeks ago, I had an amazing salad during a layover in the Detroit airport. Read the rest of this post »»

Fried Sweet Potato Cakes

Fried Sweet Potato Cakes

Like my recent sandwich idea, I don’t find myself frying things too often but every once in a while I like to indulge. Let’s just say I’m a big believer in Michael Pollen’s 39th “Food Rule”:

#39 Eat all the junk food you want as long as you cook it yourself. Read the rest of this post »»

Grilled Chicken Panini with avocado and salsa

Grilled Chicken Panini With Avocado and Salsa

Sometimes I just crave a a good old-fashioned sandwich. Something cheesy and flavorful between two slices of bread. There’s no doubt my sandwich and bread consumption has decreased since losing weight, but every now and then I like to indulge. This sandwich TOTALLY hit the spot — warm, melty, tasty and only 5 ingredients that I picked up at ALDI.

Kale salad with Pecans, Dried Cherries and Gouda

Kale Salad With Pecans, Dried Cherries and Gouda

There was a time I’d buy produce only to have it rot in my fridge. Now I find it a source of inspiration. So when I have an abundance of something you’ll see it sprinkled on the blog a lot as I find different ways to use it.

Anyway, this salad was AMAZING. So simple yet so satisfying. The combination of pecans, dried cherries and Gouda is somehow indulgent yet simple. Read the rest of this post »»
