Fruity Quinoa Salad with Sweet Apricot Vinaigrette

I love putting fruit in salads.  Whether it’s salad greens, pasta salad, or even cold quinoa salad, fruit just adds a nice sweet pop of flavor. This fruity quinoa salad with sweet apricot vinaigrette recipe doesn’t skimp on the fruit.  It calls for mandarin oranges, strawberries, and grapes.  And, it even has fruit in the dressing.  Apricot preserves [...]

One Pot Wonder Cajun Chicken Alfredo

Red Lobster has a Cajun chicken linguini alfredo that my husband likes to get when we eat there.  It’s got pasta and chunks of chicken in a garlic parmesan alfredo sauce that’s been kicked up with Cajun spices.  It’s delicious, don’t get me wrong.  But, the calorie count on that dish is through the roof. [...]

Easy breakfast casserole is really [...]

Banana Peanut Butter Oat Muffins

Banana peanut butter oat muffins are healthy, delicious, and simple to make.   All of the ingredients get pulverized in a food processor, or blender.  This breaks down most of the oats and produces a smooth batter.  It also makes the mixing process a cinch. There is no flour or oil in this recipe.  The oil is replaced with [...]

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? Start by cutting two bell peppers in half and removing the seeds.  Roast the peppers for about 20 minutes. [...]
