Panko Crusted Honey Mustard Salmon

Salmon is one of my favorite dinners to make so I should be sharing it a lot more often. It’s generally very easy to prepare, it’s incredibly healthy (it even makes the superfood list) and it’s something I feel great about eating that will fill me up thanks to those healthy fats. This salmon recipe […]

CHICKEN AVOCADO BURGERS

I have made these many times now.  I love them with ground chicken but ground turkey will work in a pinch.  (consider increasing  your garlic, salt and pepper when using ground turkey to kick up the flavor a bit). This has turned out to be the most viewed post on my blog…to say I didn’t […]

Roasted Parmesan Carrots

This recipe is one of my favorite ways to eat carrots. Roasting them with the olive oil, parmesan, and garlic turns an ordinary carrot into something extraordinary. You can turn any carrot-haters into carrot-lovers with this recipe. Seriously. They are that good. And so easy to make! Whenever I make a batch of these roasted […]

Homemade Black Bean Burger Recipe

There is nothing quite like a fresh cooked beef patty on a soft bun with all the fixin’s, right?…except… what?! That’s a black bean burger!? Yep, a black bean burger recipe is truly a phenomenon. They look and feel just like a beef burger and can be topped exactly the same way. The taste, you […]

GRILLED SALMON BURGERS WITH AVOCADO SALSA

I added a bit of poblano and a heaping scoop of avocado salsa. If you are not familiar with poblano peppers, boy are you in for a treat. I describe them as a cross between a bell pepper and a jalapeño. In fact I’ve given up green bell peppers entirely and just use poblano’s. Pepper […]

MASHED POTATO CASSEROLE

I love this Mashed Potato Casserole. It’s a little fancy! It’s a lot tasty! And, it makes fabulous leftovers! I made it the other day to serve with my husband’s Braised Beef with Balsamic Roasted Tomatoes, and it went really with it. He had dinner and a couple day’s worth of great lunches out of […]

SPICY ROASTED VEGETABLE MACARONI AND CHEESE

Scoop up a spoonful of this mouthwatering, butter-free mac and cheese with colorful roasted veggies! You can leave out the spice, if you’d like, for a kid-friendly option. Creamy, dreamy macaroni and cheese is my absolute favorite side dish, but I always feel like it needs a little pizzaz. Why mess with a good thing? […]

Chicken Teriyaki Sushi Balls

My sister and her hubby were here for a visit. They were excited and anxious too as this was their first time ever travelling overseas. I knew that feeling too well…yes… that took me back to the time when it was my first time stepping into the plane… butterflies in my stomach were making somersault. […]
