One of my husband's favorite meals is cheesy cornbread with some sort of meat in it. The problem is it's usually very unhealthy. So I cut way back on the meat, used far less oil and only used half the cheese. And guess what? He didn't know the difference. (Note, he probably did know the difference, he is just nicer than I am.)Read More
When I was in high school I used to frequent a Mexican restaurant in town. It was a favorite spot after football games or before other events.
My favorite dish to order was this tortilla bowl filled with rice, chicken and cheese. But after I went to college I couldn't find another restaurant who served the same thing. So, I learned to make it myself.Read More
I hear it's fall in some parts of the country... it was 80 degrees today. It was gorgeous, but still 80.
However, I will pretend it is fall by sharing with you some of my favorite homemade soups, stews and chilis.Read More
One thing I hear time and time again from a lot of busy moms is that they don't have time to cook. They have jobs and children and spouses and homes to maintain and obligations and it just gets to be too much. The last thing they want to do is spend an hour in the kitchen.Read More
So I like to pretend I am from Georgia. I lived there the first six years of my marriage and I LOVED it. Don't get me wrong, I have come to enjoy living in South Alabama again, but a piece of my heart will always be in Georgia.Read More
I am trying to find new and inventive ways to go meatless or meat less.
I am still working on getting Jason fully on board with this. But I have several reasons for trying to go meatless once a week.Read More
If you have read this blog for any amount of time you have already figured out that I LOVE pasta. Love it. Live for it.
But, it doesn't love me back. Just ask my waist line (or what used to be waist). So I have been cutting back on my carbs. But I miss lasagna. I miss the cheese and tomato goodness. I miss it!!!Read More
So I am on the hunt for healthy recipes that are quick and easy. And that my toddler will eat. This one seemed to fit that bill last week. It only took a few minutes to put together and then throw on the grill and even Ry liked it.Read More
Back before our kid days Jason and I used to go to Chili's where I enjoyed the Southwest Chicken Eggrolls. Gimme a second... and let me reflect on that.
Okay, I am back. I got a hankering for those just the other week, and I decided to put lean ground turkey, corn and blackbeans along with brown rice in a tortilla. It's not an exact replica by a long shot but pair it with my Cilantro Lime Avocado Ranch and it's like a little plate of happiness.Read More
