Lemon Sage Chicken Packs

I’m a day late with this recipe. I made it yesterday while home alone. Yes, alone. I’m not sure what came over me. Home alone, bored, and looking to experiment.

I was inspired by two things. First I was reading about how to cook chicken in parchment and how moist it comes out. I never cooked chicken that way before is it sounded like a fun approach. So, why not? :~)

Chocolate Quinoa

Alright, you guys are either going to think I’m crazy or a genius! ;~P This is one of those thing I may only like.

I made it up yesterday being bored and stir crazy. I never realized how much I depend on the toddler to keep me going in the morning. This week without him has been rather bland. So to shake things up, I experimented in the kitchen!

Simple Low Fat Whole Grain Crêpe

I was watching the food network and Bobby Flay was having a Throwdown with some Crêpe ladies and I was inspired. I never had a Crêpe before. Have you?

So I set out and researched a bit on line and most recipe required a lot of eggs and butter. Wanting something lighter, I experimented with my own creation and was SHOCKED when they came out! Read the rest of this post »»

Cold Shrimp and Orzo Salad

This is an idea of mine I remade after digging through old food photos for the cookbook. I made it again for the toddlers birthday party and the family loved it, especially my mom and the father-in-law (I had to use the “the” it’s my thing now).

SpinachPepperSalad_06991

Roasted Red Pepper and Spinach Salad

Home from the beach and debating what to make for dinner, I decided on some quick burgers on the grill, a side of baked beans and a salad.

The salad is a mix of what I have left in the fridge upon my return, a bag of wilting spinach and a jar of roasted red peppers. I dressed it with a simple vinaigrette (which I didn’t think it needed as the peppers add a nice sweetness), flaxseeds and a bit of cheese.

I’m at the BEACH!

I recorded this before I left but it took forever to upload for some stupid reason. So here I am on, on the boardwalk with the laptop chatting with my mom and friend. I just got back from a run and I’m having a blast. I hope you guys enjoy the rest of the week!

Sweet Chicken Salad – Video Post

I had fruit, I had chicken, Hmmmmmm… this is what I came up with and honestly, I could not be happier! I loved loved loved it!

Bear with us in the video, it is a bit long as I took a few detours with the toddler. He’s seems to be able to help more and more but still gets easily distracted. Ahhhh the joys of toddlerhood!

Mahi Mahi with Fresh Veggies and Quinoa

Even though the husband isn’t, I’m a HUGE fan of one pan meals. A grain, a protein and tons of veggies in one easy casserole dish, you can’t go wrong.

Is this a casserole? Hmmmm Not sure. I tend to think of cheesy, pasta-ish style dishes as “casseroles” but I think this applies as well. You’ll have to let me know.

Watermelon Ice

I came up with this idea last year when I was craving a sweet treat but didn’t have anything on hand. This kind of snack is the best because I truly believe…

1.) It’s utterly more satisfying when you make something yourself.
2.) Waiting for that snacks makes it all the more satisfying in the end.

I’m typing this up, licking my lips in anticipation of my night time snack. Read the rest of this post »»
