Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Breakfast Smoothie

Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Breakfast Smoothie

Yesterday I just wasn’t in the mood for my typical breakfast of eggs. Normally I whip up a quick omelet or grab a hard-boiled egg or two out of the fridge. But yesterday what I really wanted was something sweet and chocolaty. So I decided to blend up a smoothie. Read the rest of this post »»

LaaLoosh Inspired Spicy Thai Dressing

LaaLoosh-Inspired Spicy Thai Dressing

A few weeks ago LaaLoosh interviewed me for their site and shared one of my favorite recipes, Zucchini and Spaghetti Squash LasagnaClick here to read the interview.

While skimming their site, this recipe for Thai Shrimp Salad caught my attention. I’m fairly new to Thai flavors and LOVE them but rarely get a chance to indulge. It’s slightly out of The Husband’s ethnic food comfort zone so we don’t often. Read the rest of this post »»

Using Leftovers: Cheesesteak Spinach Salad

All the cheesy awesomeness of a Philly cheesesteak on a fresh bed of baby spinach. Why hadn’t I thought of this before? It was simply delicious and I didn’t even miss the ketchup! (I’m ketchup obsessed for those who don’t know.) Read the rest of this post »»

Canned Potatoes and Green Peppers

There are quite a few things I always have on hand for those times you just can’t make it to the grocery and canned potatoes are one of them.

I know what you’re thinking… canned potatoes??

Ew. Read the rest of this post »»

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 »»
