This is what i missed these last few months. Having a stocked kitchen (semi at least) and just whipping something up. I love trying new things. It’s such a fun challenging outlet for me. I mean I gotta eat.. why not have fun with it. Right?
We did it! We recorded a video in the new kitchen! It was actually the toddler, err, I mean the kid’s idea (I call him the toddler through the whole thing, when will I realize he’s FOUR.)
No new ideas but we taste test Fiber One Apple Cinnamon Muffins. They were very tasty and came our perfectly even with my Roni Modifications. ;~)
It’s been WAAAAY to long! I can’t believe how much I’ve missed not only cooking but posting my ideas here on GreenLiteBites. I can’t promise consistent recipes as we will be unpacking for awhile but I am making an effort to cook and will try out a few new ideas as I have time. LIke this one for a simple side dish.
I wanted broccoli but I’m bored with simply nuking frozen or steaming fresh so I decided to roast it. Boy I’m glad I did! What an awesome way to prepare boring old broccoli! Some of the edges scorch and the florets soften without getting mushy. Seriously, it’s awesome! Read the rest of this post
This recipe isn’t polished as I totally butchered the preparation BUT it was SO tasty I had to share the flavor combination. I’ll make it again with more detail and repost but I thought this may give you some ideas. Of course you can go chicken instead of pricey scallops, they just happen to be on sale this week at the grocery store AND the child LOVES them. :)
Or I guess you can call them salmon patties. But being from Maryland, land of the crab cake, cake just sounds right to me. :)
Here’s the story. Yesterday after an insane morning run I knew I was gonna be hungry and I knew the husband was gonna want to order in or go out (not only is it what he does BUT it was also the first college football Saturday of the season.) Read the rest of this post
Okay, so I recorded us making a breakfast I already recorded. *sigh* it’s come down to a repeat I guess. Oh well, I wanted to post something but I’ve been so preoccupied with my job, the new house and this stupid cold I can’t shake. I hope to post a tour of the new kitchen next week. We won’t officially be in the house for two more weeks but it’s ours and the end of living out of boxes is now i sight!
Sorry, I’ve been sitting on this idea all week trying to find time to simply post! But I won’t bore you with crazy life busy stories. :) Here’s the deal…
This past weekend after a long run (I’m training for a marathon) I wanted, I was craving, fruit. Thankfully we just went shopping so I had lots of options. :) Read the rest of this post
Don’t know what Sweet Tamarind is, yeah.. either did we! Watch us as we share some with Batman and Ben10 and most importantly figure our how to open the box. :) For more info on Sweet Tamarind check out these sites…. Read the rest of this post
I did it! I cooked dinner! I can’t believe it! :) It’s been forever and I’m happy to report my return to the kitchen was (sort of) welcomed by both the husband and the child. Actually the child DEVOURED his plate. The husband, picked, ate a bit, said it was “good”. Then I told him there was sweet potatoes in it and he made a face. You gotta love when the Dad is pickier then the kid. ;)
I NEEDED to cook this morning. It was like therapy. I’m so sorry for my absence. I’ve been dealing with quite a bit of personal stuff. But let’s not talk about that… I want to tell you about my experimental muffins that I turned into “upside down cakes” because they didn’t rise. ;)
It was a dinner-less day today. The whole family was out and about at different times. I went shopping. The husband took the little guy putt putt-ing. Then later the husband golfed while Ryan watched me run a 5k at a local winery. It was a really eventful day! By the time I got home I just wanted something bar-food like with a healthy twist. Then I remembered I defrosted a few chicken breasts. Read the rest of this post
