Simple Cumin Dusted Bone In Pork Chops

Simple Cumin-Dusted Bone-In Pork Chops

I realized the other day that I haven’t shared a dinner post in quite some time. I tend to gravitate toward the single-serve stuff I make for myself because it’s easier to capture the process. Cooking with 2 kids in the house while trying to snap photos, take notes, and get everyone to the table before soccer practice, scouts or The Husband’s tennis matches is, well, quite the challenge!

Avocado Chicken Pizza

Using Leftovers: Avocado Chicken Pizza

I didn’t think I’d like this as much as I did, but boy was it tasty!

I was looking for a way to use leftover cooked chicken. Then I realized I also had some ripe avocados. At first I was thinking of making some sort of chicken salad using avocado instead of mayo but the thought of green chicken salad didn’t sound too appetizing.

Produce Pick: Horned Melon [video]

I tried, I really did, but I could not carve out 20 minutes in a quiet house with both kids to record this darn video. It’s getting harder and harder the older the kids get. Life was simple with just one toddler. Now that I have a grade-schooler AND a toddler things are hectic! Read the rest of this post »»

Simply Spaghetti Squash Hash

Simple Spaghetti Squash Hash

I have learned to love breakfast.

Like really LOVE breakfast.

Give me bacon, eggs and hash and I’m in heaven.

I normally make myself eggs but leave the bacon and potatoes for special occasions or mornings out at a local diner. But this morning as I opened my fridge and saw the container of cooked spaghetti squash, it hit me: Why not make “hash” out of the squash? Read the rest of this post »»

Green Watermelon Avocado Smoothie

Green Watermelon Avocado Smoothie

I may have gone off the deep end with these green smoothie things. I can’t stress how long it took me to put spinach in my smoothies. I just didn’t believe it would be good. Then 2 years ago I made my first one and was hooked! Now I have a page devoted to them –click here to see all my green smoothie ideas.

This particular version is not for the faint of heart. It’s as green as green can be! Read the rest of this post »»

Homemade Whole Wheat Whoopie Pie

Our Whole Wheat Whoopie Pie Adventure!

This post may come as a surprise to some long time GreenLiteBites readers. I rarely share traditional dessert recipes as my cooking inspiration has always come from making things lighter and staying away from traditional ingredients like butter and white flour. Read the rest of this post »»

I haven’t posted a Using Leftover Idea in some time so I decided to share this fun salad I made over the weekend with leftover pork loin. It came out amazingly awesome! A little higher on the calorie side than I expected but oh so tasty and filling. I loved it for a quick lunch.

Blueberry Breakfast Quesadilla

I wanted to share this idea with you two days ago but I got a little distracted by “Good Morning America.”

Yup, good old “GMA”!

They contacted me in the morning on Wednesday about my stolen photo situation and before I knew it, I had a news crew at my house!
