Italian Turkey Zucchini Boats

Went back to my roots last week and my beloved pasta sauce to bring a really healthy and delicious recipe to you (and to me, of course). I know a lot of people who have recommended trying this and I’ve always been a little hesitant. I’m not sure why but part of it may be…

Five Ingredient Potato Wedges

Some weeks just don’t go as planned, amirite? Like the end of last week and the beginning this week – sort of living in a trippy Groundhog Day experience these days. But anywho… cut to last week on Friday. I really meant to get my life together by Friday and post a recipe. Did it…

Seasoned Italian Green Beans

I truly love seasoned green beans from a can. I always have. Even as a kid – and there is one specific brand that is SO good. Comes in a giant can. Bottom of the shelf in the canned food aisle. Ya can’t miss it. But, it happens to cost me points. And I would…

Cheesy Cauliflower Mash

Last week, I really wanted to attempt a cold cauliflower salad but I was CRAVING mashed potatoes. One thing you will learn about me is that I will NEVER tire of mashed potatoes. Ever. But, with trying to be healthy and eating more vegetables, I wanted to flex my cooking new things muscle and try…

Watermelon Cucumber Feta Salad

Sorry, I’m not sorry for posting back to back cold composed salad recipes – it’s summer and I am taking advantage of summer cooking to the fullest! And why does everything taste better in a bowl? Kidding (maybe), but I am fond of these new bowls I just got. Maybe next week I will try…

Honey Garlic Shrimp

I’m going outside my comfort zone. I will admit that I am not the best cook when it comes to seafood but I’m pretty adept when it comes to flavor so along with my trusty meat thermometer, I think this one turned out just fine. There isn’t any specific stir fry season, in my opinion;…

Banana Cinnamon Protein Muffins

Summer is a time for good foods and eating healthy – but what happens when you still LOVE bread and carbs? And truth be told, this recipe came out of a mild jealousy of all the other people baking bread during the Q and I just wanted in on the cinnamon roll fun. So here…

Apple Cucumber Spring Slaw

I love spring. Not because of the wonderful allergies of course but because it gives me the excuse to eat cold foods ALL. THE. TIME. And not saying there is something wrong with eating cold foods in the winter. I’m just not a fan. So any time I have the chance to whip up some…

Basil Honey Vinaigrette

Oh summer, I can almost taste you right around the corner and it doesn’t help that I’m already in salad mode. Summer equals amazing salads! Win-win! This week, I wanted a BLT bad, and I’ll be honest: I don’t eat bacon a lot but when I do, it’s on! So I had a thought to…

Roasted Cornish Hens

In my house, especially this time of year, I really try to make sure I put something good on the table at least one night a week. I consider it practice for the days to come with children and the busy-ness that having little ones entails so I try to find something easy and a…
