Twice Baked Potato Cups

Twice Baked Potato3

  Twice Baked Potato Cups!  A new twist on an old idea....makes them look all fancy and stuff. Who doesn't love Twice Baked Potatoes?  They are a vehicle for just about anything.  I went pretty standard on this recipe.  Sour cream, butta, butta and mo butta, bacon and cheese. After whipping these up I shot some pic's  in my fancy photo studio.  Thought you would like to see how a full time food blogger lives. It's fairly impressive....   Here we have my … [continue]

Chicken Parmesan Soup

Chicken Parm Soup1

  What’s to love about this soup? 1.)  It’s easy.   Rotisserie chicken or a couple cups of diced cooked chicken will make a huge pot! 2.) It’s healthy.   (as long as you don’t load up on the parm!) 3.) It’s fast.  25 minutes from stove to table! 4.)  There will be leftovers for lunch! Quadruple recipe […]


Avocado Hummus

Avocado Hummus1500

  I AM A WINNER!  Is there anything better than getting an email that says YOU ARE A WINNER!?  (have you ever gotten one that says you are a loser? cause that would be brutal).  WINNING is sooo much better than losing.  Really, I like it a lot! My recipe won first place in the California […]


Corn and Avocado Salad with Lime Honey Vinaigrette

Corn and Avocado Salad1

I can’t get enough of this stuff!  I first made this to go with my Grilled Mahi but found it’s just as yummy on it’s own.  We serve it with simple grilled chicken and it’s fabulous with Fajitas.    The lime keeps the avocado nice and green and the honey adds just a touch of […]


Super Easy Baked Egg Boats

Egg Boat cut

    This is one of the easiest recipes I have made in some time….not just ‘Easy’, but ‘Super Easy!” I first saw this recipe on The Chew.    I catch it during my ‘lunch hour’.     I like to think of watching the show as a work related training class….love my job!  I thought it was such an […]


30 Minute Chicken Puttanesca

Chicken Puttanesca1c

    In the interest of full disclosure, it takes 35 minutes to make this dish, but 35 isn’t as catchy as 30…so straight up sorry for that.  You will forgive me when you make this…I promise!  It could be the easiest and, not to mention, healthiest dinner you make!  #Paleo #Whole30 #onepotwonder.  Do you […]


Fresh and Easy Taco Meat

Taco Meat

  This is a staple in our house – especially when I am eating Paleo or Whole30.   I usually use ground chicken but ground turkey or beef works great too.  You can hide all kinds of veggies in here.  I used poblanos, red and green peppers, onions and on occasion chopped carrots and corn. Your kiddo’s will […]


Sheet Pan Salmon Fajitas

Salmon Fajitas1a

        Why didn’t I ever think of this before?  It’s soooo good and soooo easy! It’s prepared exactly like my Sheet Pan Chicken Fajita’s but I swapped out the chicken for the salmon.  You use the same simple olive oil and spice mixture to toss the veggies in and brush on the […]


Rice and Cashew Salad with Lightened Up Asian Dressing

Asian Rice Salad6

  A nice little change up from your regular pasta or potato salad.  Served chilled,  the combo of crunchy cashews and water chestnuts are addicting!  And of course, easy.  It’s gotta be easy or it just doesn’t show up here! This recipe is from my Mom.  She made it up years ago and we have been making it ever since. […]

Easy Grilled Mahi with Avocado and Corn Salsa

mahi with Corn Salsa1a

  Grilling outdoors – a whole new concept for this girl.  I am scared of our big bad BBQ and never touch it. (I have a fear of plumbing too but that’s a whole nother story). I have decided to face my fear head on and to date have grilled our dinner three, yes, three days […]
