PolentaPizza

Polenta Pizza – Video Post

Christy gave me this idea after she watched my Zucchini Pizza Bites Video. I have to admit, I’m new to polenta. I actually bought it for the first time to try this idea a few weeks ago.

Tonight, after work and then grocery shopping the toddler and I hit the kitchen. He was very willing to help and made his very own Polenta Pizzas (see below). :~)

Simple Onion Turkey Loaf

Sometimes, I just don’t want to think or measure or worry about dinner. On those days, I use things like pre-made soups, spices mixes or even precut veggies from the grocery store. Tonight it was a package of dry onion soup mix and a can of French onion soup that saved the day. Keeping things like this in the pantry make it easier on the nights I don’t want to worry about dinner.

Who am I kidding? I always worry about dinner! ;~P

Sweet Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup

After a long chili day I wanted a warm soupy dinner. That doesn’t sound right, but I’m sure you know what I mean.

A soup I had a few weeks back at a little local place inspired this dish. They had a stuffed pepper soup that was just simply amazing. It was comfort in a bowl. Such a simple idea, take the flavors and ingredients of stuffed peppers and turn it into a soup!

Creamy Berry Oatmeal

With all this sweetener talk, I thought I’d take my hand at making my own oatmeal. Not that I haven’t made my own oatmeal before but normaly, I rely on a pre-made packages that are chock full of artificial sweeteners like ones I use in Apple Pie Oatmeal.

Southwestern Turkey Burgers

Update: See me make these burgers on video!

About a year ago I was distraught to find that Trader Joe’s discontinued one of may favorite summer treats, their Southwestern Turkey Burger. I think they replaced it with some chicken burger but it’s just not the same.

This is my recreation. I cooked mine on the George Forman but I can’t WAIT to get them on the BBQ this summer! Read the rest of this post »»

100% Whole Wheat Lemon Poppy Muffins – Take 1

A few days ago, a reader emailed me a question about Lemon Poppy Seed muffins and I couldn’t get the thought of them out of my mind. So tonight, after the toddler went to bed I hit the kitchen. I was hit by the baking bug! Weird, I know.

I’m calling this take 1 because literally this is my first attempt to make them. I based the batter on my Whole Wheat Banana Muffins and I winged the rest based on smell and taste. Read the rest of this post »»

Roasted Peppers and Potatoes – Video Post

Join me on my crazy hour after work. Don’t worry , the video isn’t actually an hour but I thought I’d invite you into my kitchen while I prepared a new quick side dish for dinner tonight. I totally winged it (I’m sure you can tell by the video).

I’m happy to report the dish was a success! Both the husband and the toddler asked for seconds and I barely have enough leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

Black Bean and Corn Wontons

This was my Super Bowl treat, to myself. The husband had one, said he liked it and never looked back. How, the heck, does he do that? I thought they were super addictive and the shape made them perfect to scoop up my favorite salsa!

Winter Squash Soup with Roasted Seeds

A few weeks ago, I went out to lunch with two of my old friends and colleagues. When I eat with them, they always take me to the coolest places I would never find on my own. This time it was Dogwood Gourmet., an awesome Baltimore catering company focusing on local farms and business for their menu items.

We all started our meal with an Autumn Squash soup and it was DELICIOUS! They garnished it with roasted pumpkin seeds and cabbage. Honestly, it was the best squash soup I’ve had.
