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 »»

Watermelon Soda aka Party Punch – Video Post

As I say I the video, this is my idea to make a healthy party punch. I just think there are so many possibilities to make fun, fruity drinks without the use of sugar and soda.

You could make this more “adult” by adding your favorite rum but my intention was for the little ones.

Ginger Carrot Soup with Shrimp and Rice

Much like my Winter Squash Soup with Roasted Seeds, this dish was inspired by a soup I got for lunch a few weeks ago. Consequently I was with the same friend. I think we need to have lunch together more often!

ShrimpRolls_big1

Mini Shrimp Rolls

Ever since opening the frozen bag of shrimp to make my Quick Ramen Noodle Lunch. I’ve been a bit shrimp obsessed. I love brainstorming so I asked myself, what can I do with precooked shrimp that’s fun and easy? First, I was going to try a shrimp pasta meal, but the husband nixed the idea, saying, “When have I ever eaten shrimp and pasta together?” OK, then, I’ll make something for myself.

Pepperoni Pizza Salad

That’s right, I said “pizza” and “salad” in the same breath. I have NO idea where this idea came from. I was driving home from the gym the other day imagining what I could make for lunch and “pizza salad” popped in my head. I often get my best ideas in the car, it’s weird.
