Skillet Veggie and Feta Tacos

I made these for dinner last night and I’m in HEAVEN! What an easy, light, tasty way to make dinner for one (the husband and child stuck with leftovers.) I used to make Skillet Veggies all the time and simple got out of the habit. Not sure why. It’s so easy to make a base of veggies to use with anything… tacos, pizza, wraps, side dish, really, however you want to use them, they work.

Last night I decided to make up just enough for me. Read the rest of this post »»

Roasted Red Pepper and Feta Tortilla Pizza

My first experiment is a smashing success! You know me and my addiction, if anything even resembles a pizza, I’m game. I thought for sure I’d miss the mozzarella on this but not a chance! This little baby was PACKED with flavor. The sweet tomato paste and peppers with the spices and creamy cheese. I loved it!

July is ATHENOS Feta Cheese Month!

One thing you need to know about me… I LOVE a challenge. So when ATHENOS asked if I was interested in becoming a Spokesblogger for their Make a Change for the Feta campaign and coming up with 18 Feta Cheese ideas for the month of July, I was immediately interested.

Here’s the thing… I rarely eat Feta and I don’t think I’m alone here. I mean like it. I get it on my wraps at work all the time. I just never really thought about fun ways to use it at home.

Well, that’s all about to change! Read the rest of this post »»

Roasted (Wish They Were Grilled) Cabbage

I have a confession. This summer loving home cook has no grill. :( We HAD a grill at our old house but it became a casualty of the move and now a new one just isn’t in our budget. Unfortunately the deck where that grill would love to sit is also out of the question but I digress.

As the name suggests I’d much rather throw these on the grill however, they work perfectly fine in the oven. So why not? Read the rest of this post »»

20 Minute Roasted Potato Fries

This is my favorite way to cure a french fry craving at home. They make a great side dish or even a fun snack.

Sometimes I think the white potato gets a bad rep. I normally choose sweet but there’s nothing wrong with a good size Idaho now and then. ESPECIALLY in fry form. :)

Idea: Parsley Lemon Chicken with Turnip Radish Puree

Oh boy did I have fun in the kitchen today! I had a mission to experiment and that’s exactly what I did. The result was a light yummy summer meal using lots of produce I got from the farm.

I LOVED it. Then again I made it. Not sure what everyone else will think but I thought I’d share anyway. It was only Little Guy and I for dinner and Read the rest of this post »»

Whole Wheat Pasta with Rainbow Chard and White Beans

Confession time… I have NEVER eaten Chard. Ever. I’ve seen it and always thought the colors where amazing but what in the WORLD do you do with it? I mean it’s a big leaf for heavens sake!

I knew joining a CSA would be a good way to get me over the hump with some of the more intimidating veggies and in the first week it already is!

Kohlrabi

Produce Pick: Kohlrabi

As I mention in the video we joined a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture.) For those of you that don’t know, basically that means I pay a yearly feel to pick up my weekly “share” of produce that’s grown on the farm. Every week is a little different based on what’s in season and what they harvested. It ends up to be $30 a week and I’m sure I spend that already at the grocery store. Actually I’m interested in how much, if any, my grocery bill will decrease because of this. I’ll let you know. Read the rest of this post »»

Quick Berry Protein Shake

I’m on a protein for breakfast kick at the moment. Normally I stick with eggs making an omelet or cracking open a hard boiled but this weekend I had a full house and they wiped me clean of eggs!

What’s a girl to do?

Grilled Chocolate and Cherries

Cherries are in season! At least I think they are since they are all over my grocery store. The little guy totally freaked when he saw them this weekend. He’s a cherry fanatic! So we picked up a half a pound.

Normally we just eat them straight up but I was inspired tonight by a chocolate craving and a desire for dessert. Here’s what I came up with. Warning: I went a picture happy… Read the rest of this post »»

Fennel and Spinach Soup

I don’t know what came over me yesterday. I had this insane craving for soup on a hot summer day. Strange, I know. After wondering around the produce aisle I came up with this idea. a Puree-ed spinach and fennel soup. Light enough for summer and tasty enough for… well… me. lol

Fennel

Produce Pick: Fennel aka Anise

We’re Baaaaack! So sorry for lack of updates. If you follow my weight loss blog you may have known I was on vacation. We took little guy to Disney for his 5th birthday. It’s was loads of fun but I’m happy to be back in my kitchen. Read the rest of this post »»
