Easy Chicken Taco Stuffed Peppers

Easy chicken taco stuffed peppers are one of my go-to dinners for busy weeknights.  I love them!  They’re so easy to make.  They taste amazing.  And, they primarily consist of veggies and lean protein.  What’s not to love?

Crostini with Prosciutto, Fig Jam, & Goat Cheese

I’m loving this fig chia jam recipe.  It’s a healthy jam that tastes like the inside of a fig newton.  I love this stuff spread on a whole wheat English muffin for breakfast. It’s also good as part of this appetizer:  crostini with prosciutto, fig jam, & goat cheese.  The sweetness of the jam compliments the tangy goat cheese and [...]

Chicken Gyro Burgers with Tzatziki Sauce

Gyros are one of those dishes that are really challenging to make at home.  I absolutely love gyros.  I just don’t have the time or patience to make them myself.  I do, however, have the patience to make burgers.  That’s pretty easy, right? I decided to put the savory Greek flavors of a gyro into an [...]

Blueberry Lemon Poke Cake

This blueberry lemon poke cake is to die for!  It’s a lemon cake with holes poked in it.  Lemon blueberry sauce is drizzled on top of the cake so that the sauce and blueberries get down into the holes.  Then, it’s topped off with a frosting made of lemon curd and cool whip.  Amazing! The dark blue [...]

Fig Chia Jam

Many people are jumping onto the chia seed bandwagon these days, for good reason.  Chia seeds are an excellent source of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, and plant-based protein. Chia is a unique seed.  It can be absorbed by the body in its whole form (unlike flax seed which needs to be ground).  When chia seeds are mixed with liquids, a gel [...]

Today’s kitchen experiment resulted in chipotle black bean and corn stuffed peppers.  I’m happy to say [...]

Salt and Vinegar Roasted Potatoes

I have a weakness for salt and vinegar potato chips.  I love them!  They’re so salty and tart that they almost make your mouth pucker when you bite into one.  I don’t typically buy potato chips at the grocery store, so I don’t have them often.  But, when I go to a sub shop, they’re one of my [...]
