Zucchini Fritters

Do you have a pile of zucchini staring at you that you’re not quite sure what to do with?  Whether it’s from your garden, the farmer’s market or the grocery store (because it was inexpensive and you had all these great intentions)?  Well here’s one solution…fritters! These are a perfect way to take advantage of the abundance of zucchini.  They […]

Egg Roll in a Bowl

If you’ve ever eaten at a Chinese restaurant, then most likely you’ve had an egg roll.  Those little appetizers deep fried in a pro-inflammatory, highly processed oil.  So tasty at the time, but not so good for a healthy diet.  This dish takes all those delicious asian flavors and transforms them into a tasty and healthy one skillet […]

Spicy Baked Salmon

Mexican flavors are not usually synonymous with salmon but trust me, the combination of these spices will add something special to your salmon dinner.  Topped with guacamole or avocado slices and a squeeze of fresh lime juice…YUM!! Note:  You may have extra seasoning based on personal spice preference and the amount of salmon used.  If so, save it […]

Pork Sausage Sweet Potato Hash

I love a hearty and healthy hash!  They’re filling, flavorful and extremely easy to adjust based on individual likes and what you might have in your fridge.  I used a seasoned pork sausage I bought at the farmers market but feel free to use any form of ground meat you prefer.  I also love topping my hash dishes […]

Beef Liver with Apples and Onions

    Forgive me for loving liver so much!  I know not everyone is a fan but my hope is that I will convert one person at a time.  For this recipe, the apples add that touch of sweetness that some may need to break through that “I don’t like liver” mentality.  And well, onions and […]

Shrimp Egg Roll in a Bowl

Today is Ash Wednesday so when I was deciding what to make for dinner the night before, I had pulled out a bag of frozen shrimp that I had stocked up on.  I was originally thinking a shrimp jambalaya but was a little short on time.  I also had a bag of broccoli slaw that needed to be used […]

Slow Cooker Lamb Stew

Stew is one of those comfort meals that makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.  I have very vivid memories of my Mom making it in a pressure cooker.  For my version of stew, I used a lamb stew meat but you could just as well use beef.  Also, I decided to add a browning step and I […]

Sweet Potato Fries With Ground Beef and Egg Dinner Bowl

This recipe requires a couple of steps to prepare but in my opinion, is well worth it.  To save yourself some time you can make the ground beef mixture and cut the sweet potatoes the night before.   Note:  The New Bae seasoning is from Primal Palate (Amazon) and is a combination of salt, paprika, celery, pepper, […]

Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Bacon and Sausage

Brussel sprouts are one of those vegetables that a lot of people tend to forget about.  Well this dish will bring them back on your radar.  Roasting any kind of vegetable really brings out their flavor and Brussel sprouts are no exception.  But hold on, when they get all brown and crunchy…yum, even better!  Try this recipe and you […]

Chicken Cauliflower Curry Soup

I can honestly say that this soup is ranked up there as one of my favorites.  I happen to adore the flavor of curries but there are those people (like my husband) who are not big fans.  Let me follow that with…he inhaled two bowls!  Besides, it’s always good to be open-minded about trying new foods so […]
