Chicken with Mushroom Gravy

  A few weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of meeting Sarah Fragoso in Austin and I was immediately drawn to her energy and her passion for healthy food and looking to what we eat for clues to gaining control of our health. I just loved some of her simple rules for taking the …

Pepper beef stir fry

If I could name a favorite dish that I love lately, it would be ground beef stir fry. On a weekend during your food prep time, heat a big pan. Grab some ground beef (or pork or whatever). Add some garlic. Brown a HUGE batch of it. Then on busy weeknights, throw some veggies in …

Chicken with Spring Vegetables

I know it’s March, and technically, still winter, but even I am tired of the inconsistency with the weather. One day I’m wearing a down coat and the next I have a sunroof open with short sleeves. Is it just me or is the South experiencing a longer-than-normal winter?? In my desperate attempts to bring …

Chicken with Cranberry Salsa

Cooking Light has a recipe for chicken and cranberry salsa that I want to try just to see how the salsa works. It calls for jalepenos..with cranberries and oranges.

Apple Bacon Pork and Stuffing

I made this Cooking Light recipe couple of weeks ago and it was such a huge hit, I’ve made it twice since then. In fact, this gluten-free vegetable “stuffing” is extremely versatile for other dishes. I was in a hurry and it’s hot down here. Instead of cooking this in the oven, I sliced the …

Beef and Green Bean stir fry

What a hectic week! Between finishing school, starting to THINK about packing for 3 weeks in Colorado, and ramping up race training, (and maybe a small addiction to Candy Crush Saga) I’m extremely busy. I’m in that weird space of time where I don’t want to buy a weeks’ worth of groceries because we will …

My original idea for dinner was a veggie loaded garlic chicken stir fry. I wanted a lot of vegetables of various color and texture. But then when my head still felt like a pressurized blimp, I changed my mind to wanting something spicy that might open my breathing passages. And this recipe was born. I …

Orange Salmon with Rosemary

I really need to branch out from salmon. But Cooking Light has so many fresh new ways to prepare salmon and I try to enjoy it at least once a week. This week, I’m using orange and rosemary. I’ve never used these two together so I was looking forward to the flavor combination. Perhaps my …

Basil Lime chicken

I love discovering new ways to cook chicken. Lately, I’ve been on a boneless chicken thigh kick. I like the flavor and I do not miss the dry texture of breasts. This is the first time I’ve used basil and lime and it won’t be my last. I LOVED this combination and I will definitely …

Pecan crusted Salmon

Despite the horrendous day, I was craving food. I wanted meat and greens and for some reason, salmon kept coming to mind. I love salmon and I really like it plain with just lemon and dill. But I wanted a little more muscle behind it because I’m haven’t been eating a lot. Even with the …
