Out of all my ideas this is one of my absolute favorites. It’s so fast and easy. Honestly, I can’t believe I made it up! LOL The toddler loves them and they freeze really well (just pop a frozen one in the microwave for 25 seconds!). Oh and the pancakes have no added sugar, are whole grain, low fat and only one a point a piece!
Returning home after an all morning conference, I was craving a salad. Strange, right? Thankfully I had some leftover chicken breast and I just bought a jar roasted peppers. That was all the inspiration I needed! :)
As for the addition of Flax. I’ve been reading so much about how they are great additions to your diet. Read the rest of this post
I don’t know what’s up with me but I’ve been buying avocado. I don’t like guacamole so I thought I’d try to come up with other ways to eat this healthy fruit (produce pick coming soon about it.)
My first experiment , Avocado Lime Dressing, was tasty but this idea takes the cake. Here’s the thought… I don’t like guacamole because of the texture but I like all the flavors that are in it. So why not use them and make something I do like? Read the rest of this post
This recipe could be considered a failure. I guess. I mean… I loved it but I didn’t even try it on the husband because I knew he wouldn’t and the toddler declared the burgers too “oniony”. Either way, I’ll still share as you can, at least, take the idea and make it your own by skipping the onion or even adding something else.
I will not dare say I know the difference between a bread, a cake, a muffin, or even a pie for that matter. All I do know is sometimes I crave a “baked good”. At least I did today.
When I was little, my grandmother would make this yummy banana bread/cake (whatever) in a bundt pan with chocolate chips. It was one of my favorites. Read the rest of this post
This weeks video is a little all over the place. For those that watch every week the tree in the belly has turned into a “bug”… I think! You’ll have to watch and translate.
I knew I would have NO time to make dinner tonight so I grabbed a few cans and turned to my trusted Crock Pot. I have to admit, this is my new favorite veggie chili idea. I just threw everything in the pot and walked away. Next time I’ll have a few more veggies to throw in, like a zucchini, yellow squash, more peppers. Whatever you want to add would work with this base.
The other day I was chatting over on BlogToLose and the topic of food came up, of course! :) Someone asked about freezing leftovers, specifically meat. I didn’t realize some people where scared to freeze leftover cooked meat. I do it all the time! And actually the chat reminded me I had a chunk of cooked pork loin just sitting in my freezer. Not having anything in mind for dinner it came in REAL handy! Read the rest of this post
Awhile ago I made Sweet & Spicy Black Bean Dip. Then… my blender broke (wonder why) and I created Really Quick Spicy Bean Dip while declaring my love of the dip that is made with beans. :)
Roni, I bought some frozen cod and attempted to bake it, put Mrs Dash on it..oh my it was horrible…texture was awful and it tasted well tasteless. What can I do with this fish to make it edible? I have another whole bag of it…..help?
It’s the first weekend of the New Year and I wanted to make something fun and light in the kitchen. :) I love getting healthy stuff in the toddler most mornings and what can be more fun then chocolate pancakes!
Actually, I can’t lie. I was the one who wanted them. When I asked he said…
