We have had kumquats almost coming out of our ears, each week in our CSA box we have received a lunch bag full of kumquats (that equates to about 40 kumquats a week). I have been looking for numerous recipes to use the kumquats in because although they have been a favorite of my mom’s, […]
I love pizza, I love pizza with yummy ingredients like goat cheese, veggies, artichoke hearts, and pesto. I LOVE this goat cheese personal pizza. My hubbie, Craig has been out of town for a few days working in Mississippi and so I have been preparing dinner only for myself. I have been trying hard to […]
This chicken noodle soup is full of lots of fresh and delicious ingredients. This soup tastes great with chicken or turkey and would be a great way to use up leftover thanksgiving dinner turkey or meat from a rotisserie chicken. This soup is jam packed full of fresh and healthy ingredients. Carrots, celery, onions, noodles […]
My friend Peggy shared this macadamia nut crusted tilapia recipe with me a few weeks ago and I have been waiting for the right moment to make it. If I had know it was going to be this good I probably would have made it then and several times since. I don’t think I would […]
Funnily enough, I got the idea for this salad from a friend of mine from highschool. She has a beauty blog and youtube channel and did a video on what she eats in a day, and for dinner she made a chicken fajita salad. I thought it sounded delicious because we all know I love […]
These pumpkin oatmeal muffins are so moist, easy, and healthy. I made them as part of Craig and my dinner with a healthy salad and they were just the right pairing. I have always enjoyed a good bread or muffin with soup or a salad and still feel like I am eating a substantial and […]
This southwest chicken salad with avocado dressing was prepared using leftover roasted chicken and rice, it was quick, easy, and very tasty. One week ago I had surgery, it was an experience that was uplifting, scary, and unknown. If you want to know more you can read at my personal blog “musings of my mind”. […]
Craig and I picked up a large bunch of kale this week in our CSA box, along with lots of chard, lettuce, and other greens. I knew we needed to start on these vegetables right away. Because we always get so many greens I am always on the lookout for a new recipe to use […]
Mmm. I love salad. Is it weird that salad is one of the things I’ve “craved” during my pregnancy? Actually I take that back – I don’t feel like pregnancy cravings are real. Maybe I’m ruining this excuse for all women out there, or maybe its just me, but I haven’t had any stronger cravings […]
Lets start the new year off right with a healthy dinner recipe, so that we can all get started on our new years resolutions on the right foot. How many of you have made goals to eat better this year, in some way or another? I found myself wanting to cook nothing but sweets over […]
Say that fast 3 times! What a mouthful, but it pretty much describes what is in this soup from top to bottom. I found this recipe on Rachael Ray’s site and change it slightly to my liking. We finally had a cooler day here in southern California (cool meaning it only reached a high of […]
I went from hating really disliking sweet potatoes to loving them now. One of the regular vegetables Craig and I receive in our CSA box (Community Supported Agriculture) are sweet potatoes. So I guess I had to needed to learn to like them. I am so glad that I have found lots of recipes to […]
Amazingly, I have decided I like sweet potatoes. They just need to be prepared the way I like; not sweet, not even a tiny bit sweet.
What is delicata squash? I had my first introduction to it just this fall. I understand it is easy to grow, maybe it is the next new butternut.
You might call this a 2 step recipe because that is all the steps I give you in the directions, but I can’t ignore all the directions in the ingredients preparation with dicing and tearing. I was very pleased with this corn salsa and felt like it was simple enough I will definitely be preparing […]
