Mexican Chili with Tomatillos

Chili season has rolled around once again and I wanted to put a little spin on this recipe.  I already had gound pork thawed in the refrigerator so I used that for my meat but you could also use beef or turkey.  I also had some tomatillos on hand so my mind went to Mexican!  If you […]

Tahini Ground Beef and Vegetable Skillet

I seem to have a fondness for skillet meals.  I’m not sure if it’s because they remind me of when I was growing up or whether it’s just the simplicity that appeals to me.  Either way, I like the idea of seeing a meal come together in one pan! Speaking of one pan, I actually […]

Crispy Brussel Sprouts with Onions and Apples

Crispy Brussel sprouts with a touch of sweetness!  Yum!  Of course, anything with Brussel sprouts and I’m all in.  It’s apple season…yah!  They’re everywhere and there are more varieties than ever before.  I used Pink Lady because that’s what I had on hand but that is certainly not a must.  However, I would recommend an apple variety […]

Low-Carb Banana Carrot Bread

Bananas, carrots and nuts are a perfect combination in my book.  This bread is so moist and yummy!  Perfect amount of sweetness but yet not over the top.   Notes:  I used 2 small loaf pans because it is just my husband and I.  We indulge in one and I freeze the other for later. […]

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 […]

Shaved Brusssel Sprout Salad with Lemon Basil Vinaigrette

What says summer better than a light and fresh lemon vinaigrette salad?  One with blueberries it…YUM!!  The vinaigrette is easy to prepare ahead of time and keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to put your salad together.  Just pour over the top and toss.  This would also be delicious with dried cranberries in place of the blueberries […]
