Spicy Kale Egg Muffins

Spicy Egg-Kale Cups

We had ANOTHER snow day this week, which in March is a bit crazy for the Baltimore area. Plus, the past few years it’s been unseasonably warm so this winter has been particularly brutal.

Anyway, on this snow day I found myself with a bad case of cabin fever and a bag of kale, which resulted in some fun experiments and dishes – Spicy Egg Kale Cups being one of them. Read the rest of this post »»

Simple fried Millet

Simple Fried Millet

Millet. I had no idea what it was until Bob sent me some to sample.

You know, Bob… of Bob’s Red Mill.

Yeah, we’re on a first-name basis now and he likes to send me samples from time to time. Boy, am I glad he does because honestly, I would have never given millet a second look. I mean, what IS it? Read the rest of this post »»

Whole Wheat Butternut Squash Muffins

Whole Wheat Butternut Squash Muffins

I was going to name this post “Butternut Squash Muffins Take 2″ but then I realized take 1 was more than THREE YEARS AGO and no one probably remembered them but me.

Anyway, I happened to get my hands on some butternut squash puree. Read the rest of this post »»

As a blogger there is nothing better than getting a pitch from a brand/product you absolutely adore and use regularly. Here’s an except from an email I reviewed a few weeks ago …

Shirataki Noodles with Ham, Peas and cheese Sauce

Shirataki Noodles With Ham, Peas and Cheese Sauce

I know many people aren’t fans, but I like to keep a bag or two of shirataki noodles in my pantry for “emergencies” aka I’m out of fresh ingredients.  These noodles are normally advertised as a “Miracle” or “Skinny” as they are extremely low in calories because they are entirely made of fiber.

Devil-Style Shrimp Sopes

Cooking Class Experience: Devil-Style Shrimp Sopes

I don’t normally post anything here on GreenLiteBites I didn’t cook in my own kitchen but today I’m making an exception.

Last week I was on my first cruise thanks to Princess Cruises and The American Heart Association. Part of my adventure included a shore excursion at both ports of call (Grand Cayman and Cozumel) and one of the options was a Mexican cooking class. Read the rest of this post »»

Mexican Pizza on Butternut Squash

Mexican Pizza on Butternut Squash

A few days before leaving for my first every cruise vacation, I pulled out 3 simple ingredients to make an awesome quick lunch.

I shared the basic idea for this pizza last year and I still make it anytime I have a large butternut squash. This particular time I had no sauce and no shredded cheese, but I DID have salsa and pepper jack. Read the rest of this post »»

Quinoa, Beet and Feta Salad

Quinoa, Beet and Feta Salad

Did you know you can buy precooked quinoa?

I didn’t! I found that bag in Target. Haven’t seen it anywhere else yet but I have a feeling it will catch on.

Of course you could cook up your own batch but having things like this in your pantry is a great way to be prepared when you just don’t have time or, let’s face it, the energy. Read the rest of this post »»

Maple Mustard Dressed Salad

Maple Mustard Dressing

I’m on a homemade condiment kick again. Every now and then I try to declare my independence from store-bought salad dressings and BBQ sauces.

I know I’ll never NOT use store-bought again, but I like to try and keep my pantry filled with more generic items that can easily be pulled together for multiple uses. Things like mustard, maple syrup and vinegar — three things that happen to be in this very simple dressing. Read the rest of this post »»

Potato Butternut Hash

Potato-Butternut Hash

I have been cooking up a storm lately but unfortunately, the time to share my adventures has been limited. I photographed 2-3 more ideas since last Wednesday but I’m sharing the most recent one I made Saturday because, well, it was AWESOME!

I happened to have a half of raw potato — it’s a long story that has something to do with this, don’t ask. Read the rest of this post »»
