There is one thing I don’t do. One thing that probably most people would laugh at me for and call me a food snob. I can not, no way, no how, buy jarred tomato sauce. You know that Ragu stuff. Blame my mom, she never bought it when I was growing up. She’d make huge batches of homemade sauce that we seemed to always have on hand so there was never really a need.
Awhile back I wrote up my Mommy and Me Omelet Post about making eggs with the toddler. It wasn’t a recipe per say just some ideas for breakfast that can include kids. Well, I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before, but I just realized I could record one of our morning routines. Read the rest of this post
Five months ago I made Baked Ham with Sweet Potatoes and Carrots. Why is that important, you ask? Well, I ate the other half of that 3 pound ham tonight. Using the same seasoning as the baked dish, I cut the Ham into 3 oz “steaks” marinated and grilled them on the BBQ. It was delicious! The husband AND the the toddler BOTH asked for seconds. Do you believe it? Read the rest of this post
This may be one of those things that I only like. It truly is the result of… 1.)Being hungry, 2.) having NOTHING is the house, and 3.) wanting to experiment.
I was just going to make some homemade hummus but upon inspection of my almost barren cupboard I discovered no Chickpeas. Just an old can of Butter Beans.
The nice folks over at Amazing Taste contacted me asking if I’d be willing to review their seasoning packets. Honestly, I totally forgot about them until I came home from my business trip to discover a box of spices on my stoop.
Being away for the last week they couldn’t have come at a better time. I was hankering for a home cooked meal but I wanted to make something brainless that didn’t require much thought. Cue Amazing Taste Chili Seasoning! Read the rest of this post
I’m bringing back the produce picks! It’s been forever and to be honest nothings has caught my eye recently until this bright yellow melon called my name last week.
I couldn’t find much online about the canary melon, this write up from wisegeek was the most informative. Please let me know if you’ve tried it or see them in your grocery store!
Hi there, I tried your turkey burgers. I love the flavor. I cooked mine is a le creuset grille pan but they totally stuck to the pan and I generously added olive oil to coat the pan. Any tips on cooking these so so they don’t fall apart?? Thanks
It’s zucchini season, can you tell? I really can’t believe I haven’t posted these here on GreenLiteBites yet. I went digging for my own recipe (yes I do that) and had to look at my old site archives!
Anyway, these are on old favorite of mine. A little ketchup and salt, they take me right back to the good old North Eastern PA bazaars where I grew up on artery clogging potato pancakes, an old favorite of mine. They don’t have the same exact texture but they are good enough knock off for me! Read the rest of this post
You know you’ve done it before. Got a little busy, forgot to check the garden for a few days and then WOWZA you have a zucchini child on your hands.
Now most people shred those bad boys up and make zucchini bread but I want to try something a little different. I’ve seen recipes for stuffed zucchini before but they were never really stuffed, more sliced in half and topped. I decided to really STUFF one and I couldn’t be happier with the results! Even the husband liked it!! Read the rest of this post
Thank Dani for this one! I saw her luscious looking Mango-Ginger-Blueberry Crisp and raided my kitchen to duplicate. I say duplicate but what I really mean is experiment. Those that know me know it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to follow a recipe. Really, it may be my fatal flaw.
I made this for lunch yesterday and then again today. I almost wish I had more leftovers for tomorrow!
Here’s the idea, a little leftover lean protein, a ton of veggies, a slice of cheese and a whole wheat pita. Really, how can you go wrong? Read the rest of this post
