Nutella Fudgesicles (Fudge Popsicles)

My favorite foods/beverages in order are:  chocolate, red wine, and coffee.  So, I couldn’t be happier about this month’s Recipe Redux theme.  The assignment was to write a recipe including our favorite chocolate pairings.  Yes!! I think the argument could be made that chocolate pairs well with everything.  Chocolate and peanut butter.  Awesome!  Chocolate and […]

Chicken Fettuccini in Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Cream Sauce

Bite size pieces of chicken and fettuccini noodles in an amazing cream sauce flavored with sun-dried tomatoes, basil, garlic, and parmesan cheese. There’s a recipe that keeps catching my eye on Pinterest for chicken in a creamy parmesan and sun-dried tomato sauce.  I checked it out and decided that the sauce in this dish sounds […]

Honey Sriracha Beef and Broccoli

Make your own beef and broccoli at home.  It’s quick, easy, and healthier when you make it yourself.  And, honestly, I think this honey sriracha beef and broccoli tastes even better than take-out. It’s got perfectly cooked thin strips of beef and broccoli in a rich brown sauce. This dish is saucy, sweet, and spicy. […]

Healthy Lifestyle Log

There’s a popular trend amongst bloggers (mostly healthy lifestyle/food bloggers) to do a post called ‘What I Ate Wednesday’.  This is exactly what it sounds like.  The blogger makes a log of everything that they had to eat (and usually drink) for an entire day, typically on Wednesdays.  Or, sometimes the food is recorded ahead […]

Mexican Breakfast Cups

Mexican breakfast cups are a great make ahead meal that you can grab-and-go for breakfast all week.  Or, these would also be a great option for feeding a crowd. Bacon, cheese, corn, black beans, and avocado go into a muffin tin.  An egg mixture that’s been kicked up with hot sauce gets poured over the […]

Baked Coconut Chicken Tenders

Baked coconut chicken tenders were part of a previously posted recipe for tropical salad with coconut chicken and pineapple vinaigrette.  This crunchy, flavorful chicken goes perfectly with the fruity tropical salad.  However, it’s fantastic served with anything.  So, I’m creating this post specifically for the star of that tropical salad, the coconut chicken. Baked coconut […]

Tropical Salad with Coconut Chicken and Pineapple Vinaigrette

This morning I went to the gym and ran some errands as I normally do.  But, today was a little different.  Today the wind chill was -20 degrees Fahrenheit.  Booo!!! I’m not a fan of the cold, at all!  I’m convinced I was born in the wrong part of the world.  I’ve always envisioned myself […]

Italian Chicken Noodle Soup

The very first episode that I ever saw of Rachel Ray’s daytime talk show was sometime around 2007.  I remember it because she made an Italian chicken noodle soup that inspired me to make this recipe.  I’ve probably made this soup 4 or 5 times a year ever since.  For someone like me who develops […]
