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

This morning I made these crescent rolls for breakfast as I was scrambling around the kitchen trying to piece something tasty together.

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

Cheesy Italian Bake

Cheesy Italian Bake

It’s hard for many of us to resist the urge of carbs; the satiable feeling of being full but at the same time filling out our waistline.  For the most part, I have cut out carbs from my eating lifestyle, which may have helped to my loss of over 20 lbs.  Not to say I don’t still … Continue reading
