ITALIAN CHICKEN & VEGGIES – A ONE POT WONDER

Hi There!

It’s been a very long while since I’ve been here.  Doesn’t mean I’ve stopped eating, on the contrary, probably been eating a little too much!  Been experimenting and playing in my kitchen as much as ever.  Unfortunately, life has gotten in the way of my documenting and posting recipes.  I’m hoping this one breaks […]

CHICKEN & PEPPERS

I’ve always loved meals that are what I call “One Pot Wonders”.  Although this bakes up all in one nice big pan, you will need a deep skillet to get it all started.  I’ve been making a dish similar to this for years, but the other night while watching Chef Lidia Bastianich on Television make […]

TUNA CROQUETTES (Cakes)

I really love fast ‘n easy light summer meals.  This of course can be served any time of the year!

Canned Tuna is one of those pantry staples that just about everyone keeps, so when you’re looking for something different are in a pinch for a meal why not pull out the tuna, add a few […]

COCONUT CURRY LENTILS

I made Lentil Shakshuka the other day and found I cooked way too many lentils.  Decided I’d make another batch and when I started the sauce I got creative adding a few other spices, then I decided I was in the mood for curry with a Thai twist.  Next thing I know I’ve got this gorgeous bubbling, thick, rich […]

LENTIL SHAKSHUKA

Shakshuka has always been one of my favorite go to “one pot wonder” meals.  After all, how can you go wrong with a lovely warm, satisfying savory sauce of red peppers, tomatoes and loads of seasoning topped with perfectly poached eggs?!

SOUTHWEST SEASONED CHICKEN

SOUTHWEST SEASONED CHICKEN  (THE PERFECT ALL PURPOSE MEAL)
I love using seasoned ground meat as a main dish in a myriad of ways. Once you’ve decided what kind of seasonings you’d like to use – in this case I like the South Western flavors – you can use this as a filling for taco shells, fajitas, […]

Ricotta Protein Pancakes

I’ve been obsessed with pancakes lately!  Not sure why, but I’ve been making them in every conceivable configuration without using flour in the last few months.

Forgot all about a fabulous recipe I used to make years ago that was just ricotta cheese, eggs and some flavoring.  Dairy was omitted from my diet for quite some […]

AVOCADO EGG BAKE

I’m always looking for ways to enjoy my favorite foods in different ways.  We now know that we need fat to survive and to actually help us burn fat.  But the fats we need to eat have to be one of the “good guys”.  Avocado is one of the really good guys!

The majority of fats […]

LENTIL, WALNUT, QUINOA BURGERS

This lovely dinner is a Lentil, walnut, quinoa burger, with fresh homemade roasted garlic hummos (I’ll post that recipe shortly) and sliced avocado, roasted asparagus, and my favorite simple chunky fresh raw salad with white wine vinaigrette.  SO simple SO GOOD!

During my journey of health and fitness I’ve played with my diet and tweeked it […]
