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.

Simply Spinach Stuffed Mushrooms

This is another one that’s going to make mom laugh. Besides onion that, as a child, I despised and now can’t live without mushrooms were a close second for most hated veggie. Yet again my mom was right, they are GOOD! especially stuffed! (and in eggs. Yes, I actually had mushrooms twice today.)

HalloweenBrownies

Halloween Brownie Bites

This weeks video was recorded completely impromptu tonight. Honestly, I totally decided to skip the gym and make brownies instead. How bad is that?!? I just felt out of it and you can tell! For example, I can’t remember what a toothpick is AND I say it’s Tuesday when it’s really Wednesday. Just out of it! Read the rest of this post »»

Spinach Ricotta Roll

Wanting something “bad” but needing to be “good” I made this Spinach Ricotta Roll yesterday for lunch. Some of you may know my obsession with pizza and pizza like foods (for example stromboli). I basically love anything slapped on some pizza dough, smothered in cheese and dipped in a red tomato sauce. I mean seriously, who doesn’t?? :~)

Healthy Breakfast Hash

In the mood for a big Sunday breakfast and only having one egg can make you do funny funny things. ;~P

I fished out an old frozen bag of hash brown cut potatoes. Did you know they were just potatoes? I didn’t. I always thought frozen “hash browns” would be chock full of stuff I didn’t want to eat but on inspection of a few brands, some of them are just shredded potatoes with a preservative. But I digress.

Big Simple Chocolate Cupcakes

This is a repost. With all my technical issues and site moving over the last couple of years I lost a few ideas. This one has prompted more emails then any other! Originally I made them for the toddler’s 2nd birthday.  They came out better then I expected, moist, yummy and HUGE!

Idea: Mushroom, Pea & Chicken Casserole

I almost didn’t post this because it was one of those quick things I just threw together in shear desperation and even though I jotted down the directions I just thought it wasn’t polished enough to share. Then I mentioned it to my Mother-in-law this weekend. She said it sounded good. So I reconsidered.

I have to add the husband and the toddler both enjoyed it so I’m not sure what was holding me back. Read the rest of this post »»

Ask Roni: Mincing Garlic

Hello!
I have been following your website and trying out some cooking recently and I have been having a blast. I never cook but I have found it to be fun! I apologize if this is a question you have already answered, but do you have a suggestion for a good tool to mince garlic? I have bought two and I haven’t been happy with either.
Thanks,
Julie

sandsuhi1

Sandwich Sushi

This idea was in direct response to the toddler saying he “did not like sandwiches” in his lunch anymore. Who can blame him? Five days of a ham and cheese on whole wheat can get old. *sigh* What’s a mom to do? Never did I think I’d have a hard time coming up with ideas for his lunch box! It’s hard enough not being able to send him with a PB&J or even a handful of peanuts as an easy protein source (his school is a peanut free zone), but now he’s taking sandwiches off the table too!

PricklyPear

The Prickly Pear – Video Post

Yesterday I discovered prickly pears (aka Tuna Fruit) at the grocery store! I’m so glad we picked a couple up. The toddler and I had fun exploring this new healthy food together this morning. According to NutrionData.com prickly pears are a good source of Calcium and Potassium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Vitamin C and Magnesium.
