Chocolate Oatmeal Walnut Cookies

I haven’t been this excited about a recipe in a long time. I was a on mission to create a healthier cookie that ACTUALLY tasted good and I think I did it. I actually did it. To accomplish it I had to resort to using sugar and butter, two things I haven’t used in a recipe for a l-o-n-g time. Of course I severely reduced them but using some was inevitable to make a tasty cookie. Read the rest of this post »»

How Many Attempt at Recipes Does it Take?

Hi Roni,

I love your site and how you put your own spin on recipes. I was wondering how long/many attempts does it usually take for you to get your recipe right? I had an idea for oatmeal made overnight in the crock pot/slow-cooker, so that my husband could have it at 4:30 am before heading out to work. I found a recipe on another site and the results weren’t to our taste, so I know I’ll be going through some trial and error until I get it the way we like it. Is this how you come up with some of your recipes? How many attempts until you either have it or give up? Just curious, do you have a crock pot oatmeal recipe? Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

-Patty

Simply Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

I was making the toddler’s lunch when I realized I had a pint of cherry tomatoes that were getting a bit overripe. I don’t know about you, but I can’t eat cherry tomatoes once they get all “wrinkly”. For some reason, they gross me out! So I decided to make a little evening snack.

Oat and Flax Crusted Tilapia

As I said in my original “crusted” tilapia idea, I’m fascinated with breading things in anything other then traditional breadcrumbs. I just think it’s fun to come up with new ideas for “bread-ings”.

curriedTurkeySalad

Curried Turkey Salad with Apple and Pear

I was on a mission to use the leftover turkey in some ingenious ways this year. Something fun and different but light, especially after the amount of calories I’ve consumed over the last 2 days! Yikes!

So this morning I whipped this up and oh… my… word… SO GOOD! Read the rest of this post »»

Red Rice with Beans and Sausage

I made this dish for a friend. That’s right, I have sought out others to cook for since the husband is overall… BORING! I kid, but you know what I mean. I know his likes, and dislikes and it’s fun considering someone else’s. I guess you can say I’m food cheating. That’s right I admit it, I food cheat on my husband. At least he knows and we have an open dinner relationship. LOL :~P

Thanksgiving Prep: Slow Cooker Sweet Potatoes

Continuing with my thanksgiving prep I present a completely new idea. Well…. at least I think it’s new. :~)

As you may know this is the first year I’m cooking Thanksgiving dinner. I’m feeling the pressure to make things very traditional but I also want to make them my own (with health and nutrition in mind, of course!) So instead of the old fashioned candied mashed sweet potatoes with marshmallow on top, I’m going for sweet potatoes in the crockpot. Read the rest of this post »»

Berry-licious Pomegranate Oatmeal

I couldn’t help myself, I took my hand at another Oatmeal flavor. This time taking the tea idea and going for more flavor!

The toddler and I cleaned our traditional morning Pomegranate (we do it at least once a week) and the idea smacked me in the face! Why not top some berry flavored oatmeal with theses!
