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

DIY Wallflowers/air fresheners

DIY Wallflowers/air fresheners

Scents are one of the many ways in which I lighten my mood and decrease my stress. Nothing beats coming home to a house with the sweet scent of fresh baked cookies, vanilla or citrus fruits that remind me of my last Caribbean voyage. I’ve tried every new fad when it comes to odorizing your home: candles, … 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
