I had the opportunity to make brunch the other day, and I immediately thought of quiche. But I couldn’t decide what kind of quiche to make… so I upped the ante, and made two quiches. TWO FREAKIN’ QUICHES!
Here’s how I made them: Read the rest of this entry »

I went to a holiday party last night, and contributed a dish, since it was a potluck. I’m not going to take credit and say I invented anything, but I did take a recipe that only had four ingredients and swapped two of them for healthier items. That’s 50%, y’all! It all started with a package.
This is the Pineapple Pecan Cheesespread Mix by Country Home Creations, a local dip mix company that’s Read the rest of this entry »

It’s now been over two months since I’ve started my new job, and it’s been going great. This office job is a lot different than working from home, but, generally speaking, I’ve adapted to it well.

My food posts have been few and far between lately, but I am making good choices and cooking healthy meals.

I love trying new varieties of fruits and vegetables. So I was very excited to see a basket of green vegetables at the store labeled “Shanghai.”
They look like little baby bok choys, but who knows? Maybe they’re something completely different! Only one way to find out… bring some home and eat them! Read the rest of this entry »

A big part of our Easter dinner was… green eggs and ham!
The ham was a spiral-cut ham from the grocery store that we baked and glazed. The deviled eggs, though, were a new recipe, with the green color coming from Read the rest of this entry »

Jello Salad! It’s a blast from the past!
This isn’t some random Jello dessert. It’s a legitimate salad, made with four kinds of vegetables. And, of course, Jello! Read the rest of this entry »

I love salad bars. I get the freedom of putting together my own meal, while knowing that it’s super easy to make delicious and healthy choices. It’s win-win!
I craved a salad bar all weekend. I think it’s because Read the rest of this entry »

I modify and mess with recipes all the time, so that I can make them healthier, more appealing to me, and to use ingredients I have on hand. I recently made some Shepherd’s Pie, but I may have strayed too far in my quest to make it guilt-free. I don’t know if I can still call this Shepherd’s Pie or not. What do you think?
