Healthy Banana Muffins

Healthy Banana Muffins

For those of you who like my Facebook page, you may remember my impulse buy of a 40lb box of bananas (it was only $3!! I couldn’t pass it up!). Many good things have come out of that box of banana, but I think my favorite were these banana muffins. I tried a couple banana…


Zucchini Boats

Zucchini Boats

Made this for dinner last night and they were a huge hit! 1. They are “boats” how cool is it to get to eat a boat and steer it all around your plate while eating and 2. I told my kids it was basically pizza in a boat (back to point 1 on the boat)…


Green Beans with Tomato and Feta

Green Beans with Tomato and Feta

Whip this up based on what I had on hand was not at all intending to create something blog worthy, but it was delicious! My kids loved it and begged me to make it again the next night. My husband was disappointed he was missing out (seriously the point was since my husband wasn’t home…


Cabbage and Sausage Skillet

Cabbage Sausage Skillet

I was inspired to create this dish after looking through recipes for cabbage and seeing lots of cabbage roll recipes. I love cabbage rolls, but honestly find them a bit tedious. Plus honestly I think they are a little lacking in cabbage volume… lol, I love my cabbage! So this dish is a simpler, one…


Cilantro Lime Coleslaw

Cilantro Lime Coleslaw

This recipe is so simple and so easy, it’s barely a recipe. I kind of whipped it up without much thought one night and it was delicious! I was just looking for a quick, easy, refreshing side to go with dinner using up some cabbage I had on hand. As soon as I tried it…

Homemade Chinese take out? I think yes! This recipe is so quick and easy and delicious there is no reason to go for take out. My version is not breaded, but you could totally do a breaded version as well with the same sauce, yum! I just like to try to keep it lighter and…


Orange Ginger Glazed Carrots

Orange Ginger Carrots

So, my husband HATES and I mean HATES cooked carrots. While he still doesn’t love this recipe it is one of the very few (possible only) cooked carrot recipe he can stomach. So to me that’s a win! 😀 It’s nice and easy and simple. It makes a great side dish to so many meals….


Ajvar

Ajvar

So I was at Trader Joe’s and sampled this roasted red pepper dip, it was really good! I knew right away I wanted to recreate it at home (I mean even though Trader Joe’s prices are reasonable, why spend $3-4 on a jar of dip that I could easily replicate at home, I mean we…


Crockpot Huli Huli Chicken

Crockpot Huli Huli Chicken

Hawaiian barbecue anyone? It seems a bit wrong to not grill huli huli chicken, but this crockpot version is so full of flavor and so easy. It’s perfect for throwing in the crockpot in the morning to have ready n those busy weekday nights. You can totally prep it ahead of time too, through everything…


Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burritos

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burritos

These burritos makes a great meatless dinner option. They are full of flavor, sweet and spicy, and packed with nutrients. But the super great thing about these is they can easily be frozen and reheated later, great for lunches or busy nights. I like to make an avocado garnish with with (I just love avocado…
