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…

Lemon Strawberry Bread Pudding

I made such a tasty lemony dessert for my Mom for Mother’s Day and it all happened by accident actually.  I found a recipe to make a lemon pudding bundt cake on The Kitchen Maggie Blog and I had mini bundt pan’s I was going to use- after I greased the living day lights out of…

Beer Battered Crispy Salmon Fish Tacos

I’ve never cooked Salmon in batter before,  it is so delicious in my beer (Lager) batter.  I found this awesome recipe from food blogger Foodness Gracious.  The avocado Cream Sauce is very tasty too.  The only addition I did was drizzle some Sriracha Powder on top the fish after it’s cooked with green cabbage and sauce….

Shrimp Wonton Soup

My little girl loves Dumplings and after our first visit to a location out in Arcadia she has decided it’s one of her favorite things to eat.  So, naturally I needed to come up with a recipe for her.  Pinterest never fails- you can  find really quick and easy recipes on there.  This is where…

Panko/Parmesean crusted Tilapia in Tomato-Basil cream sauce

My daughter is loving this fish recipe I found.  I did everything step by step with 2 things different-  I used Roma Tomato’s instead of Cherry and I also drizzled the top of this with Thyme Honey Vinegar and you can taste the thyme in this.  I bought this new item at Trader Joe’s and kept…
