One of the new things for me with my new health and wellness program is figuring out healthy low glycemic meals. A definite go to for many people is spaghetti squash. So I have tried spaghetti squash before…yeah…it didn’t go well. I threw out the whole thing. I was definitely hesitant to try it again. BUT I needed to find… Continue reading
It is definitely different but I am happily adjusting to a low glycemic lifestyle ever since starting my new health plan. One thing I am finding is that I can still enjoy many of my favorite style meals just with a little adjustment. While I still think I can partake in my traditional chili recipe, I did… Continue reading
Not that long ago I saw a Facebook post showing zucchinis used as a boat for a variety of different concoctions. I have to admit it was a clever idea – an interesting way to avoid the tortilla. I tucked it away in my memory for a rainy day as just something interesting, and kind of cool, nothing more.
Since… Continue reading
I have to admit one of my favorite dishes is a gyro. I adore the meat and love the seasonings and the scrumptious cucumber and yogurt sauce. That said, the process involved in making gyro meat is a very complex and specialized process. So I’ve never really been able to make this yummy sandwich at home. That is until I… Continue reading
So you may have noticed that last Monday there was not a Monday Munchies. Well… that’s because I had been a little busy between holiday parties and holiday fun events, helping my mother with finalizing her house purchase and on a new health program (more about that in the new year but let me say its AWESOME)… Continue reading
Sometimes you just need simple. And nothing is more simple in my mind than couscous. It cooks up in about 5 minutes. You can add almost anything to it and change it from a fun and friendly side to a main entrée in seconds. Its definitely a staple in my pantry…and probably should go on my emergency shelf.
So when… Continue reading
Okay…so I am late on my post. Yesterday was a special day for me. Santa came early and delivered a brand new Samsung Chef Collection refrigerator! Have you ever had a new fridge delivered when you already had another one in place? Any sympathy for me? I had two I had to deal with – one in the garage… Continue reading
I saw this dish in the Better Homes and Gardens Dinner on a Dollar magazine and just knew I had to give it a try. It looked so elegant and like something out of a Victorian novel when the ladies were getting together for tea. Then I went shopping and kid you not, each serving clocked in at less than… Continue reading
I happen to love Thai peanut sauce, especially on a barbeque spring roll. So when I saw this peanut-sauced veggies and noodles, I jumped all over it. I pretty much followed the recipe to the letter…and there are definitely some things I would change. Typically, I can say that the recipes I’ve tried out of the Better Homes and Gardens… Continue reading
I love a good taco. In fact, there is this little family run Mexican restaurant in my old stomping grounds where you can get the best street tacos for dirt cheap. I even love homemade tacos – crispy tacos. What I don’t like is the mess and the oil. When I ran across this beef taco pie recipe in the… Continue reading
