Experimental Pumpkin Oatmeal Bites

I don’t know WHAT came over me last night. It was 10PM and I “wanted something”. So I hit the kitchen with an empty stomach and some inspiration from these pumpkin cookies.

I fear calling mine cookies as they really aren’t. I don’t like to sugarcoat what I make (literally and figuratively :~P) so I’ll simply call these “bites”. Read the rest of this post »»

Idea: Fried Bulgur with Peas and Pomegranate

Update: I posted the official recipe with a video, click here to check it out!

Remember on my about page how I mentioned sometimes I just cook for me. Well, this is one of those times. Without having to please the husband or the toddler I hit the ground running with leftovers I found in the fridge. Let me just say, right now, as I eat this. I’m SO happy I have a picky husband for the pure fact that I DON’T want to share! Read the rest of this post »»

Pomegranate

Eating Pomegranate – Video Post

As I say the video, I had the idea of showing you how the toddler and I eat pomegranate last year but my plans were foiled. Apparently you can’t get pomegranates out of season, at least where I live. So I had to wait until they were in stores again. When I saw them this weekend I HAD to pick some up. Read the rest of this post »»

Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Don’t get your hopes up, it’s more oatmeal then pie. And since we are in full fledge fall I just had to do something my canned pumpkin. Just HAD to! ;~P

I’m getting more into oatmeal but not the pre-packages flavors. I really want to find ways to make it fun and tasty at home without using a pre-flavored package with all the junk in it. Read the rest of this post »»

Ramen Noodle Lunch Take III -Ramen "Chili"

Yup, I’m at it again. Messing with those Ramen noodles (Click here to see my other Ramen ideas). Here’s the deal, it’s Friday, I’m in desperate need of a grocery shopping trip. I just got home from a 2 hour workout with an awesome trainer who kicked my butt and, dude, I was HUNGRY.

FrenchToast

Quick French Toast… Video Post

…and I mean quick! Seriously, the video is 15 minutes. It took me 15 minutes to make a warm, healthy home cooked breakfast for the toddler before school. That 15 minutes included a bit of discipline, a pumpkin show off, a mini-commercial, the toddler cracking my eggs and scooping my spices. It was fun, fast, healthy, and everything I want family time to be (although, I do have to curb the toddler’s self expression to talk to you! LOL) Read the rest of this post »»

Quick Garlic Pasta with Chicken & Broccoli

This was a quick idea after having nothing ready for dinner. I was fighting off the urge to order in and I needed to please both the husband and the toddler. Now that’s no easy task! :~)

Somehow I succeeded! The only thing the husband said was it could have used a bit more garlic. I, on the other hand, thought it was the perfect amount. The hint was there without being overpowering and I couldn’t add more anyway, I used all that I had! Read the rest of this post »»

Roasted Veggie Soup with Black Beans and Bulgur

Oh my Word! I LOVE this soup! I found myself Friday with a crap load of veggies and craving for a nice healthy bowl of warmth. And boy was it perfect timing as a cold front just came in!

I made this on Friday during a complete food fest. The toddler was home form school and we spent the better part of the day in the kitchen like two happy clams chatting and munching. It was so much fun!

Simple Asian Inspired Wrap Filling

Equipped with nothing but an aging cucumber, a handful of baby carrots, some cooked chicken and my pantry I whipped this lunch up today. It was simple and tasty I only wish I had a few more ingredients. Maybe some sprouts, sesame seeds or even celery.
