Curried Butter Bean Dip

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.

Garden Chili with a Product Review

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 »»

Ask Roni – Stick-less Turkey Burgers?

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

Zucchini Pancakes

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 »»

Giant Stuffed Zucchini

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 »»

BlueberryMangoCrisp

Blueberry-Mango “Crisp”

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.

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 »»

Summer Veggie Bake

Nothing makes me feel better then returning home after a few indulgent days of vacationing than a homemade meal. A quick stop at the farm stand on our way home from Atlantic City equipped me with some large fresh zucchini, vine ripen tomatoes and the biggest Vidala onion I’ve even seen! This is how I put the three together for a simple summer meal.

Quick Chocolate Kettle Corn

The long awaited, hope it’s not a disappointment, kettle corn. No toddler in this one, I just needed a break!

However, he likes it, of course! The husband hasn’t tried it yet, yeah, I know, don’t ask.
