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 »»

Breaded Salmon Sticks

I failed. :( My only mission tonight was to get salmon in the boy. I tried so hard to make a kid friendly dish. I really did. I breaded it. I sweetened it a bit. I even made it dip-able in ketchup. If that doesn’t define toddler friendly I don’t know what does.

To my dismay as I pulled dinner out of the oven he took one look and declared, “I don’t like those.” Read the rest of this post »»

Dried Herb and Yogurt Marinated Pork

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?

Fiber One Apple Cinnamon Muffin Mix Taste Test

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. ;~)

Roasted Broccoli

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 »»

Idea: Sweet and Sour Scallops and Peppers over Rice

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. :)

Salmon Cakes

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 »»

ApplePie2

Apple Pie Oatmeal 2

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!

As for the Apple Pie Oatmeal, click here for a slightly better video and the recipe with a pic.

Watermelon Banana Split

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 »»

Ham and Sweet Potato Skillet

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. ;)
