Tiny Turkey Meatballs and Other Yummy Stuff

Our Texas weather is indecisive…to say the least. From 80 to 40 to 80 again. Our bipolar weather is not only to blame for the numerous doctor visits (is it allergies? a cold?) and  wardrobe confusion, but also for the creation of this comforting soup. When it’s cold and rainy outside, nothing beats sitting in … Continue reading

Lemony Shrimp and Spinach Pasta

I love experimenting with new recipes, especially recipes that I can feel good about serving my family. I recently created what I call ‘Lemony Shrimp and Spinach Pasta’ by simply tossing together a few stray ingredients I had lying in my freezer. This meal was so yummy, my three year old didn’t even realize she … Continue reading

In Honor of Fall…

Ooh! Fall…my absolute favorite time of year. Cozy sweaters and tall boots, the smell of cinnaman candles, Friday night lights, Starbuck’s caramel apple spice,  and the first fire of the year (we don’t wait for winter, the very moment the temperature drops below 75 my husband has our fireplace a ‘roarin’). What is there not to … Continue reading

Meditteranian Fish & A Frozen Sweet Treat

I made the most scrumptious meditteranian fish dish using trout that my husband brought back from his fishing/ ‘business’ trip in Louisiana last month. It’s a tough job…. Anyway, I’m not complaining. We love fish! All kinds. But with a freezer full creativity is a necessity. And that is how I came up with this dish that I … Continue reading

Spicy Shrimp Lettuce Wraps

This is a new recipe for our family. Something a little different that what we are used to. But I recently had the Thai Shrimp Wraps from BJ’s and have not stopped thinking about them since. And because Harper loves her some ‘skrimps’, I threw caution to the wind and whipped these babies up…fingers crossed… And … Continue reading

Chicken Cacciatore & Roasted Broccoli

Savory. Spicy. Hearty. HEALTHY. Chicken Cacciatore is one of my favorite meals. Not only does it take less than 30 minutes to prepare but it also results in great leftovers. Until recently I would have served my family a heaping helping of this dish made with regular pasta. But now I opt for whole wheat pasta, smaller servings, … Continue reading

Peach Quesadillas & A Date Night

No, that’s not a typo. Really…peach quesadillas. I was introduced to a blog yesterday called Everyday Belle. I love her creativity when it comes to food. She is truly an artist, and I am the copy-cat. When I saw her extremely unordinary combination of cheese, peaches, and tortillas, my first thought was, ‘Genius! My two year … Continue reading

A Healthier, Snackier Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie. Irresistible! There is something about chilled key lime pie in the heat of summer that makes me weak in my knees. In order to save my waistline from serious damage, I had to find a smarter way to satisfy this undeniable craving. So here it is, my Healthier, Snackier Key Lime Pie. … Continue reading

Feta Turkey Burger

If you have yet to follow Fit Minded Mom, your missing out. Her blog is honest, and fun, and most importantly inspiring. As a matter of fact, she was the inspiration behind the feta turkey burgers my family enjoyed for supper last night. I had full intentions of following her recipe to a T, but … Continue reading
