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

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

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
