VitaMuffinMix Contest Winners!

Oh My GOSH! I did it, I finally did it. It took days reviewing, reading and drooling over the 60+ entries. Every idea was just genius! Really, just genius! I didn’t think it was going to be as hard as it was. I really didn’t.

I will be emailing … Read the rest of this post »»

Cuttin’ Fresh Pineapple – Video Post

Just a quick video this week, the toddler isn’t feeling too well and I wanted to get some fresh fruit in him. Although basic, this video is for all those scared to by a fresh pineapple. There is really nothing to it.

turkeyOverSquash1

Mini Turkey Balls & Broccoli over Spaghetti Squash

When the husband is away, I get to play!

I LOVE when it’s just the toddler and I for dinner. I get to experiment freely without trying to please someone who has completely different taste then I do.

Anyway, I had this idea of mini turkey meatballs. I thought they would be fun for me to make and easy for the toddler to eat. Originally, I was going to do a sweet and sour but I didn’t have enough ingredients so I went with what I had in the pantry.

TortillaLessSoup

Tortilla-Less Tortilla Soup – Video Post

Alright, I don’t know WHAT I was thinking. All I can say is my illness must have caused a momentary lapse of sanity resulting in me thinking I could actually cook an entire dish on video with a distracting toddler roaming around.

Just be prepared for Diego sunglasses, tent talk, the Tabasco incident, piano playing and me messing up as usual. At one point, I try to show you the dish off camera. I’m a mess! But hey, even the stomach flu doesn’t keep me away from the weekly video! ;~P They are too much fun! That being said, if you aren’t prepared to see me fumble for 20 minutes, the recipe is Read the rest of this post »»

mexPie1

Mexican Pie

I’m patting myself on the back for this one. It is one of my absolute favorite creations and today I actually had other taste testers besides the husband. Taste testers who are open and willing to try new things and they LOVED it! Man I love cooking for people who actually like to eat.

Printing Recipes – Just a note!

I just wanted to write a quick note about printing my recipes. I’ve been getting some comments and emails about adding a printer friendly version. And I’m happy to say, I don’t have too!

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). :~)

onionTurkeyLoaf1

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

bellPepperSoup1

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!

CreamyBerryOatmeal1

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.
