Chicken Pot Pie- Topped Biscuit

Most of the time I eat relatively healthy, veggies and protein.  There are occasions when I just want to sit with a jar of Cocoa Almond butter and devour it with a spoon. 😉  There are also times when I  need good comfort food in my life because life should be about balance.   After…

Chicken Thighs in Parm Cream with Spinach

I love finding recipes with pictures on Pinterest!  I don’t try them as often as I am finding them.  I love that I can pin all the things I fancy and neatly tuck them into their own separate boards.  I did have to make some boards private due to a rather jealous girl that can’t…

Moroccan Chicken in the Slow Cooker

I declare myself a Pinterest addict, finding common interest with those who have a love for cooking, books, snowboarding, funny things, photography, clothing, shoes, music, camping, art….I can go on and on.  The point is when you find you have the same interest as others you become addicted to sharing and discovering what’s new in…

New England Seafood Chowder

After our Labor Day weekend in Mammoth and two very cold nights in the canyon we came back to really hot weather and sneezing, itchy throats and I”m like no. I decided  I wanted something warm and creamy with seafood in it.  So after some research I came across the top seafood chowder recipe on…

The Sushi Bowl

I think it is inevitable that every time I shop in Sprouts I must get the latest Fine Cooking Magazine addition.  This store really knows how to market those healthy recipe magazines up on those counters next to those health vitamins.  I quickly flipped through the entire magazine in 2 minutes deciding if I should get it…

Black Bean Quinoa Salad with Chipotle Steak

After doing my random scroll through all the foodie’s I”m following on Instagram I came across Cooking Light‘s little video take on a very tasty new dish.  I new I had to make this today and I also realized how much I miss Cooking Light recipes.  I did the recipe exactly with no substitutions and…

BBQ Salmon Burger

I wanted Salmon burger and after looking at the ingredients to a couple of recipes I found online I wanted something more than what those recipes called for.  So I made my own.  I loved the way these burgers came out and I think a lot of it has to do with the ingredients I used,…

Fish Tacos with Cabbage and Chile Pepper Slaw

I purchased Paleo Magazine and I plan on trying out at least another 5 more recipes this summer.  I’ve already conquered two. 🙂  I love Cod- this fish has it’s own buttery texture mix that with the soft roasted tomatillos in mild flavors…ah perfection.  For the adult version I added a chopped roasted jalapeno to it….

Blueberry Pancake Bites

These are seriously cute!  They only have 2 TBSP of sugar too so I had to make them for my little ones and these are easy to pack for a snack. These have a nice crunch on the outside and soft in the inside with the sweet and tart berries.  I always thought the pan…

Dijon Pork Chops With Apple Salad

I started this blog back in 2006 so there are so many repeat recipes that I do with little twists and changes to them but nothing that I will post about.  So I will go long periods of not posting something until I get in my slump of a mood that I need to try…

Red Wine Meat Sauce Lasagna

I decided to go for something Italian 🙂 so no it isn’t healthy but it is darn good. I found a recipe I wanted to follow but I changed most of the ingredients- but this one seems really good with all the amazing reviews so if you want the exact recipe click on  All Recipes ….

Middle Eastern Salad with Garbanzo and Black Beans

There’s this Middle Eastern salad I love from Trader Joe’s- I decided to just add all the ingredients it says it has on the side of the carton- it is so tasty and now I have my own to indulge in.  I used Lemon Flavored Olive Oil mixed with Scilian Selezione Olive Oil.  1/4 cup…
