Pineapple Zucchini Nut Bread

Pineapple Zucchini Nut Bread

There’s nothing better than the smell of fresh-baked bread and in this case, zucchini bread. This recipe isn’t your traditional zucchini bread though;  I’ve added a touch of pineapple to sweeten the loaf.  It makes a large batch, therefore I mix things up by making 1 loaf and several muffins for an easy fix on the go.   … Continue reading

Mashed Garlic Cauliflower

Mashed Garlic Cauliflower

On the same day I made the parmesan spiraled veggies I also tried a new recipe from Delicious by Dre.  Again, I was trying to wean away from bringing another carbolicious side dish.  At first I was skeptical about how good mashed cauliflower could really replace mashed potatoes but I was surprised, by not only … Continue reading

Spiraled Parmesan Vegetables

Spiraled Parmesan Vegetables

A bit behind in my posts since I made this recipe for Mother’s day, oops!  Regardless, every holiday my family gets together and ends up having a carb fest, all those yummy comfort food dishes that are typical of American holidays.  Since the meals typically revolve around the meat and potatoes, I began my search … Continue reading

Clean Eating Taco Seasoning

Clean Eating Taco Seasoning

While going through some of my pantry items I took notice of the laundry list of chemicals and preservatives that I’m ingesting every day.  Anything with the word hydrogenated pretty much stands for fat (trans and saturated), brominated vegetable oil is a flame retardant and used in many bottled drinks and studies have shown that those unnatural coloring dyes … Continue reading

Fiery Lemon Chicken

Fiery Lemon Chicken

There are so many things you can do with a whole chicken, stuff it, roast it, fry it, etc.  That’s why whenever there’s a sale on whole chickens I stock up!  How easy is it to rub some spices and throw it in the oven for a meal?  Instead of baking my usual rubbed chicken I came across this recipe … Continue reading

Breakfast Asparagus with Parmesan

Breakfast Asparagus with Parmesan

I’m a huge fan of asparagus; thinking about giving it a try in my new garden. It’s a great veggie, packed with a lot of crunch and health benefits – B6, vitamin A, fiber, etc. Being officially spring, or so I hear because I’m definitely not seeing it, asparagus season is nearing. Which led me … Continue reading

Baked Salmon Marinade

If you don’t have a lot of time to prepare an elaborate meal read on for this easy, quick salmon marinade.   Originally I found this recipe on budget savvy diva, but have adapted after making it a couple times.  On those days that I’m short on time, I just whip up the ingredients, stick it in the oven … Continue reading

Thin (healthier) Crust Pizza

Thin (healthier) Crust Pizza

I love pizza! Who doesn’t, right? It seriously could be a staple in our household and my husband would have no problem eating it for all 3 meals a day. However, after months of weekly Jet’s pizza deliveries, it took its toll – on our bodies, that is. After determining that we needed a change … Continue reading
