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
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
Here’s my new, warm, go-to breakfast when I’m out of or don’t feel like eggs. Don’t be fooled by its appearance. It’s a warm bowl of yumminess and the best part:
Chocolate for breakfast!

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 …

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. Read the rest of this post
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
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
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
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
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
I made this salad for the second time today and I’m in LOVE!
First I have to tell you how I got the idea because, well, that’s what I do. Read the rest of this post
