This has been a busy summer. No doubt about it. We haven’t had a free weekend since the middle of May and we don’t have one till the middle of August. I got up this morning and starting thinking about the day and what had to be done. We are going to the air show. This requires food and coolers, … [Read more…]

Happy National Peanut Butter Cookie Day!!!  What? You mean you didn’t know that holiday was happening today?  Well, now you do. I love peanut butter cookies.  I make no apology for that fact.  I mean, seriously, what’s not to love?  It’s a cookie and the main ingredient is peanut butter! … [Read more…]

A few weeks ago, I had mentioned that I wanted to try quinoa. I had heard a lot about how healthy it is for you. (If you want to read all about quinoa, you can go here.) To the store I went, I bought a box of quinoa and then I was like, now what? I think it’s important to note that I’m not much … [Read more…]

I’m sure many of you are like me and love pasta!  I mean, really, what’s not to love? All that carby goodness of pasta which also just happens to be the perfect vessel to carry some luscious sauce right to your taste buds.  *drool*  Of course, then there’s the downside which is all the calories and … [Read more…]

I love lasagna, not only eating it, but making it. I’ve spent years fine tuning my lasagna recipe. It is, by far, the most popular dish my coworkers ask me to make whenever we have a potluck meal. The downside? There is absolutely NOTHING healthy about my traditional lasagna recipe. It has four … [Read more…]

I will preface this recipe by saying I’m a fisherman’s daughter. So I’m quite partial to salmon…FRESH, PACIFIC, WILD CAUGHT SALMON. This recipe though? Calls for canned. Every year at Christmas, my parents give everybody canned salmon, and usually I turn it down. Bad memories from … [Read more…]

I do love me a recipe that is quick, easy, and includes the vegetable in the recipe. Tropical Chicken (Packets) definitely fits the bill. Cook this up and serve it over some brown rice and you are good to go. Now, you’ll see below that the original recipe is actually set up for cooking out on the … [Read more…]

I love salad.  Pure and simple.  If I could only eat one food for the rest of my life, I think I could live on salad.  There are so many different kinds.  So many ways to make a basic green salad and then change it up a hundred different ways. I bought the Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade Cooking Made … [Read more…]

For the most part, my family is a raw vegetable bunch. I normally just buy a veggie conducive to eating raw, cut it up, set out some ranch dip or hummus, and we’re good to go. But this Oriental Green Beans is one vegetable recipe that I head back to every now and then. The kids don’t touch it, … [Read more…]

And by the way, I went in for a second round of the crock pot oatmeal I featured last week from … [Read more…]
