Simple Tuna Burgers

I made these burgers for a quick lunch today. The husband said they smelled good, yet he opted for a plain old ham and cheese. Go figure. I’ve come to terms with the fact that I shall never understand his dietary choices. ;)

Being honest, I had no idea how these Tuna Burgers would turn out. I wanted to go a little nutty adding in mango or even pineapple, but then decided to go simple just to see if the base recipe would work out. Read the rest of this post »»

Pumpkin Cake

The Pumpkin Cake – Happy Halloween!

Little Guy and I created a new tradition tonight! A simple pumpkin cake using a store bought cake mix, canned pumpkin and a standard ice cream cone. We got the idea after seeing this. I’ll put the directions below the video.

For those who’ve watched our prior video… Little Guy brings back the tree in his belly! It totally cracked me up!

Pasta with Pumpkin, Sausage and Spinach

Believe me, I never thought I would put those three things together either. Pumpkin? Sausage? Spinach? But Oh.My.Word! So yummy!

I saw Rachel Ray make something similar a while back and I think she used fresh sage and nutmeg. So those are the flavors I stuck with. Of course starting with a base of onion and garlic.

Fast Food Style Egg Sandwich

You are going to think this idea is absolutely ridiculous or genius. I tend to think it’s genius but I may be biased. ;) Simply, I make an egg mold out of an empty nut can. Here, I’ll show you. I went a little picture happy.

Ingredients I used…

Roni’s Redo: Deep Dish Crescent Pizza Casserole

You may have noticed some changes around here. Check out my edited All Recipes By Photo page, my new Weight Watchers page and changed layouts for the categories like our video posts. In honor of my recent housecleaning, I’m also adding a new section, Roni’s Redos. This category will be specifically reserved for my healthy spin on your recipes and I’m starting with an email Amy sent me a few months ago…

Acorn Squash Stuffed with Apple Cider Quinoa

This idea hit me on my home from the gym today. I was pondering what I would make for lunch and then I remembered I had these two tiny acorn squash from the farm that I had no idea what I was going to do with. Just look how stinkin’ cute these are or should I say were… ;)

Leek, Carrot, & Cabbage Fried Rice

I wasn’t planning on posting this idea as I thought it was too close to my other quick fried rice ideas. Both of which I recorded videos for…

I made last night rice similar to the kale one but instead of kale I used 3 leaves from a head of cabbage. Read the rest of this post »»

Simple Base Cabbage Soup

Weight Watchers has a 0 point soup and this is sort of my starting point version. I like a tomato base especially with cabbage and I think you can use any kind of vegetable you like. There’s no wrong way to make this soup. Honestly, there is nothing to it yet I can’t stop eating it! It’s SO good!

I was inspired to make it for two reasons.

Warm Chard Salad with Turnips, Almonds and Dried Cherries

Did I tell you that the number one benefit of joining a CSA for me has been an increase in leafy green consumption. I gotta be honest, I rarely bought anything but a bag of baby spinach before joining the farm and even then I would just use it for traditional salad or cold like lettuce. I didn’t grow up a “greens” eater so it just doesn’t come natural to me.

Yet Another Chili Idea

In the fall I could make a chili every weekend but unfortunately the husband isn’t a fan. I know, crazy… right? I mean WHO doesn’t like CHILI?!? Especially on a cool fall day! This drives me nuts as chili is the ultimate comfort food for me. I don’t care if you make it with beef, turkey, or only beans. Scoop it over rice, bulgur, pasta or even couscous, doesn’t matter. Top it with some cheese and it’s love in a bowl in my opinion.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Cups

It’s fall! Can’t you tell by my recent posts? Breads, soups, butternut squash, oatmeal, sweet potatoes and PUMPKIN have been dominating my thoughts and this morning was no different. I woke up with a craving for pumpkin and I decided to make a variation of my Banana Oatmeal Cups specifically for the season.

Boy I’m glad I took a shot! These came out fantastic! Moist portable pumpkin oatmeal muffins with just a touch of sweetness. Read the rest of this post »»
