SausageandPeppers

Quick Sausage and Pepper Dinner Idea

I did my old trick of turning on the camera after coming home to record myself making dinner. This time it was Sausage and Peppers over pasta in a quick tomato based sauce. I didn’t have time to snap a photo and calculate nutritional information so no recipe write up for now.

However, I WILL be making it again as the husband LOVED It even though he grumbled when I told him what I was making. The child, on the other hand, ate all the pasta and peppers but found the sausage too spicy. Next time I’ll use the sweet. :) Read the rest of this post »»

Pumpkin Pancakes

I’ve been making these things for weeks now and I can’t remember what inspired me the first time around. I think it was because I wanted to make banana pancakes but I didn’t have any bananas. I glanced over at our Halloween pumpkins and der…. why haven’t I thought of this before?!?

Veggie Scoops

I’m a HUGE fan of baked tortilla chips. Nothing beats a big ol’ bowl of salsa and a bag baked chips. That was until… I found my new friends Baked Scoops! These are basically a baked plan tortilla chip shaped into a bowl. I mean COME ON! Nothing is screaming to be made into an awesome snack like these things (and no I wasn’t paid to tell you that, just in case you wondering. I have no affiliation with FritoLay)

Halloween Party Punch Idea

This weeks video is a bit all over the place but I think we successfully get our idea out. Sometimes it’s tough with a 4 year old by your side and dinner in the oven.

Click here to see my original party punch idea. Adding a bit if Pomegranate juice and melon balls can be a fun take for halloween. Think eyeballs floating in a bowl of blood, or something. :) Read the rest of this post »»

Pomegranate Kiwi Ice

I got an influx of Kiwis from our Crazy Fruit Day and had no idea what to do with them. Sure I could eat them straight up or make a fruit salad but that’s boring. I wanted to have some fun!

So I whipped this up when I got home from work today and I just enjoyed the frozen treat. It was delicious, refreshing and fun! Read the rest of this post »»

"Lighter" Stuffed Shells and My Party Spread

This week I decided to record a bit as I prepared for my first party in the new house. I made the husbands favorite, Stuffed Shells. As I say in the video, I’m not going to give nutritional information or specifics but I shared my “lighter” technique as well as my tips for entertaining slightly lighter.

Apple-Cinnamon Pancakes

Let me first say this idea only hit me because of our recent influx of fruit. :) I had a slow morning as the little guy had a doctors appointment. So I got to chill a bit instead of rushing in to beat traffic.

So I took the idea behind my quick banana pancakes and gave apple a try. I was pleasantly surprised how they came out. Really Moist and fluffy! But honestly, I wish they tasted a bit more “apple-y” (is that a word?) Next time I may add another apple and double the cinnamon but overall this should give you a good starting point for your own experiments. Read the rest of this post »»

Bulgur Stuffed Pork with Butternut Squash & Apples

I don’t know WHAT came over me. I had these thin cut pork chops and I just went to town. I swear cooking is becoming a creative outlet for me more and more. I just love it!

So this idea was totally inspired by fall and my recent trip to a local farm where I bought a bunch of apples and a giant butternut squash. I love winter squash and apple together. I blended the two in Winter Squash Soup with Roasted Seeds but this time I cubed them and added a bit of bulgur. What a great stuffing for pork or even just a side dish!

Lemonade Ice

I had one of those days today. You know the kind that start with a flat tire and end at a fast food restaurant. ugh. By the end of the day I wanted something. Something refreshing. Something tasty. Something I would feel good about eating after having just a wee too much chocolate shake after dinner. :)

I should add I wasn’t hungry, just looking for something to snack on. Honestly, I think I was more thirsty then hungry but plain old water wasn’t going to cut it. Did you ever have one of those days? Read the rest of this post »»
