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, […]

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 […]

Chicken Cauliflower Fried Rice

We all have those days (or maybe most of our days!) when time is of the essence.  I love this recipe for just that reason!  Common belief is that frozen vegetables are inferior to fresh and this is not always the case.  (I do recommend buying organic frozen vegetables.)  With that being said, this dish can be made […]

Smoked Oysters with Olives and Tomatoes

If you’ve never tried smoked oysters, I highly recommend them!  They are inexpensive and a great source of protein, healthy fats and iron.  I always have these on hand and will often toss them on a salad or serve them with a veggie and cheese platter.  Not an olive fan, try replacing them with chopped celery […]

Oven Baked Turmeric Chicken Thighs

When it comes to chicken, are you a white or dark meat fan?  Do you find yourself always going for the chicken breasts at the grocery store?  I use to be that person.  I think it all circles back to that “low-fat” mentality that was drilled into our heads for all those years (no need to […]

Sugar-Free Holiday Spiced Nuts

A bowl or two of nuts  sitting out for your guests or served along side your other appetizers is always a nice little touch.  These holiday nuts add an extra “wow” and seriously require a warning label on them!  They truly are the perfect combination of sweet and salty and all the spices of the […]

Avocado Green Goddess Dressing

Honestly, I could easily eat this dressing by the spoonful!  It is that good!  It is delicious over any salad as well as drizzled over some roasted or steamed vegetables.  You can whip this up in a matter of minutes and have fresh and healthy dressing all week long.  On this particular night, I served it […]

Chicken and Vegetable Stir Fry with Asian Tahini Sauce

Stir Frys are great because not only can they be made in one pan for easy clean up but it’s a great way to use up the vegetables that  have been sitting in your fridge.  To make this even quicker and easier, you could use a variety of your favorite frozen vegetables.  Also, if you’re someone who likes their stir […]
