Chicken and Vegetable Stuffed Acorn Squash

Yesterday just felt like a good day to stuff an acorn squash. I had one sitting on my counter for quite some time and it was just begging to be cooked. Since both husband and child don’t like it I made a solo meal just for me and, well, it was DELICIOUS!

Here’s what I did…

Fennel and Apple Salad

I bought a fennel bulb on a whim for the holidays not knowing quite what I would do with it. Of course I forgot about until yesterday when I was rummaging through the fridge trying to figure out what I wanted to make for breakfast.

I pulled it out and stared at it for about an hour, brainstorming with myself on how I can eat it besides just straight up.

Parsnip

Produce Pick: Parsnip [video]

We pulled out the camera for a good old fashioned produce pick video. Up this week: Parsnips!

This is another one of those vegetables that are just not on my radar for some reason. I never remember having them growing up, and honestly I don’t think I ever tried one. I didn’t know what I was missing! Read the rest of this post »»

Sprinkled VitaBrownie Donuts

I probably should have warned you I was taking a holiday hiatus. I’ve been soaking up every moment of family time imaginable these last few days, leaving no time for anything else. Not even blogging! Shocking I know. ;)

So I return not with a new recipe, per se, but to share a fun new family holiday tradition where I take my favorite brownie mix and turn it into fun festive donuts! Read the rest of this post »»

Spaghetti Squash Taco Salad Style

Here’s a quick idea for when you find yourself with a spaghetti squash but don’t quite know what to do with it.

Come on.

Admit it.

That’s happened to you too. It’s sure happened to me!

I roasted this squash on Sunday… Read the rest of this post »»

Kale, Pear and Hummus Wrap

I’m not sure if this will be a crowd pleaser, but I liked it and thought I’d share in hopes it inspires you to have some fun with kale.

I loved the combination of sweet pear, earthy kale, salty bacon bits and creamy hummus. The only issue with the wrap was moisture. I think if I cooked down the kale a little more it wouldn’t have been an issue, but even as messy as it was I’d make it again in a heartbeat. Read the rest of this post »»

Orange Ginger Tuna Salad

I’m going on day 2 of counting Weight Watcher Points and I’m already inspired to come up with light, healthy meals for myself. It’s like I needed the constraint of points to motivate me. Isn’t that weird?

Anyway, all morning I was brainstorming what to make for lunch. I wanted something flavorful and satisfying and I think I hit the nail on the head, for me anyway. Armed with an orange, a red pepper, and my pantry I came up with an Orange Ginger Tuna Salad. You may never want a boring mayo based tuna salad ever again! Read the rest of this post »»
