Main Course – 4/8 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I’m going to be honest here, I’ve posted this recipe before, but it really is one of my favorite Sunday dishes (I eat dinner with my parents every Sunday) and I thought it’s worth posting again. Add a side like grilled veggies and you have the perfect Sunday supper. Modifications: Sometimes I have a hard […]

How do you round out the perfect hangover brunch? With a perfect Bloody Mary of course! Because: I am reviewing the delicious array of V8 juices this week and decided that a V8 cocktail would be a great way to tie the two in and… And because I’ve never even had a bloody mary before and… […]

Seeing that November is Taste of the Sisterhood month, I figured it only appropriate to share one of my favorite, healthy, quick and easy recipes with you. The best part about it is that it’s not only delicious and low calorie, but it will spice up your love life too. That’s right. This breakfast entree […]

We’re in the midst of fall, and darn it all if a nice bowl of soup doesn’t just hit the spot. In all honesty, I’m kind of obsessed with soups/stews/chilis and make them year round, but there’s something about a cold stormy day that absolutely demands soup. Why do I love soup so? Well, many […]

Gosh, I love to eat.  I especially love anything with a Spanish flair.  It must be the Mexican blood coursing through my veins.  But yeah, I love casseroles and and I love salsa and I love Spanish casseroles topped with salsa. Es muy bueno. This is a simple, yummy, delicious, scrumptious casserole.  Go make it […]

Yes, I know. Beans aren’t really a fruit.  And I’m not just talking about BEANS today. I’m talking about legumes. But doesn’t that just take you back? Beans, beans, they’re good for your heart… Okay, now that you’ve had your fill of childhood limericks, let’s talk legumes, shall we? Today I’m going to talk about […]

I just re-joined Weight Watchers.  I figured it was time for me to do so since I am having such trouble losing these last 20 lbs on my own.  I know losing the weight is more like a marathon versus a sprint, but oh my goodness, I do believe I am the slowest “runner” out […]

Have you ever tried chicken sausage? It’s fantastic. I never even knew it existed until I began the journey into calorie-counting and I found it as an ingredient for something on Spark People. Its whereabouts in the grocery store perplexed me so I wandered around looking for it and found it above the breakfast sausage […]

I’ve got another shrimp recipe for you. This Pad Thai is a family favorite. Well, it’s a favorite with the adults. The kids are just now coming around to trying the shrimp. They don’t eat the noodles because there’s “stuff” on them. One of the reasons I love this recipe so much is because a […]

Isn’t this a pretty picture?!  I took it : ). Simple, easy, and delicious.  What more could you want from a recipe?  I found it difficult to control myself at one serving- that is how yummy this one is.  Consider yourself forewarned! Makeover Nacho Beef Bake (online here) Ingredients 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% […]

I’m just going to flat out state that I am hideously bad at food photography. This photograph does not do this dish justice at all. Okay, now that we have the ‘stating the obvious’ out of the way, I’d like to introduce you to my very favorite pasta dish in the entire world. Yes, that’s […]

This recipe was originally published a long time ago…..sorry that I don’t have anything new for y’all, but I have lots of amazing women at my house this weekend for a little retreat. More to come on that soon, as all of them are members of our beloved Sisterhood!! This is one of my go-to […]

A very healthy and fun sidedish for my family and one of our favorites is one I found on the Food Network before I was married. It is still a staple today, I love it so much. It’s the Confetti Couscous. Now, I’ve linked to the original recipe, but I’ll give you my version of […]

I think my children might be vegetarian and it’s of no work on my part, not that there’s anything wrong with it of course. But I’m as carnivorous as they come (big fan of the warm red center. BIG FAN.) But when I make a meatless dinner as opposed to a meatFUL dinner, I get […]

I’ve been thinking a lot about San Diego this week as I’ve been doing my 1/2 marathon training, and one thing I want to have while I’m there is some good fish tacos. I’m totally craving them. I found this recipe on and I’m hoping to cook these up for my family sometime soon! […]
